Min-Max Inventory management is crucial to lean manufacturing.  Under the best circumstances, you “build-to-ship” — no finished goods inventory in a warehouse. (From the end of the production line, products made go direct to the Staging Area of the shipping department.)  We actually saw this in a manufacturing plant hosting the trainings for many Toyota suppliers (members of the Bluegrass Automotive Manufacturers Association, or BAMA), in Kentucky, USA. Even if this aspirational goal of no warehouse F/G inventory is not possible for you, for sure we can still find ways to substantially reduce inventory.  We’ll show you how.
