  • "Designing Ordering and Inventory Management Methodologies for Purchased Parts" Members Only Content, Vol. 38, No. 2 (Spring 2002), p. 22.

    This article presents a method for redesigning the ordering and inventory management methodologies for purchased parts in a manufacturing firm. The method takes the perspective of the purchasing and logistics manager, defines clusters of purchased items, and subsequently assigns each cluster to a suitable way of ordering and inventory management. An application of the method, resulting in an 11 percent overall supply costs reduction proposal, is presented. The application shows that the method is particularly suitable for a first, rough redesign of the existing - usually undifferentiated - way of ordering and managing inventory. In addition, the method may provide a clear format for collaboration among the various disciplines involved in the redesign process.

  • "Purchasing for Lean Production: The New Strategic Agenda" Members Only Content, Vol. 32, No. 1 (Winter 1996), p. 2.

    The success of Japanese manufacturing firms over a wide range of product categories is well established; however, one can argue that the success of an individual manufacturing system (such as the excellent Toyota Production System) has not been the casual factor. Rather, it is the thorough and speedy implementation of these systems throughout the complete supplier network that is crucial to manufacturing success.

  • "The Context, Organizational Design, and Performance of JIT Buying Versus Non-JIT Buying Firms" Members Only Content, Vol. 34, No. 2 (Spring 1998), p. 12.

    A comparison of Just-In-Time (JIT) versus non-JIT buying firms was made on context, organizational, and performance dimensions. Of nine context variables examined, four distinguish JIT from non-JIT buyers: these relate to uncertainty in manufacturing and marketing processes and to product turnover. Many differences were found in the organizational design variables. JIT buyers engage in far more extensive performance measurement (on internal, benchmark, and supplier dimensions). They are more likely to have written purchasing mission statements and written purchasing strategic plans. They are more likely to rely on cross-functional teams to formulate purchasing strategy and to decentralize line-operating decision making. Material handling, market research, and transportation scheduling specialists are more likely to be employed by JIT buying firms than by non-JIT buying firms. Finally, differences were also found on four performance variables. JIT buying firms perform better in terms of weeks of inventory on hand, market share growth, return on investment, and profit.
  • "The Effect of Communication on the Linkage Between Manufacturers and Suppliers in a Just-in-Time Environment" Members Only Content, Vol. 31, No. 1 (Winter 1995), p. 20.

    This study examines the communication links between a manufacturer and a supplier in the just-in-time (JIT) partnering relationship. These links, a very basic management issue, include written exchanges, computer to computer hookups, telephone exchanges, and one-on-one and group meetings. The informational content of these exchanges typically includes cost, quality, and production schedule data. The perceptions of openness, reliability, timeliness, and ease of access were used as the qualitative description of a communication. These variables were measured and related to JIT performance and effectiveness.
