7.2 Design the Materials Supermarket

7.2 – Design the Materials Supermarket. The Supermarket concept is an important element of a Lean Material Flow system, since it allows you to have relatively small quantities of material at the POU without incurring heavy material handling costs and a high number of inventory transactions. Each supermarket, and you can have more than one, will need to be physically designed for the items that will be stored in it. Refer to the PFEP database for items and quantities needed.
