IIECongratulations to Tom Knight and Xing Guan of Invistics who published, along with Donna Ruder of Rock-Tenn, a featured article in the March 2013 issue of Industrial Engineer Magazine.

The article was titled “Electronically Pulled Production”, and it details a case study where an Atlanta packaging company reduced inventory by over 50% and saved millions using the Invistics solution to implement E-kanban replenishment between it’s manufacturing facility and the two distribution centers it fed.

Learn how Invistics designed the new processes with Pull-driven replenishment, structured a pilot to prove the benefits of the design in a “safe” environment, optimized key parameters such as inventory levels with Invistics’ software, and finally scaled out the benefits to achieve a significant return on investment for the project.

An electronic edition of the article is available on the IIE Website: Electronically Pulled Production

Note: you need an IIE subscription to be able to access the article.
