Process

Batch sized production, limited capacity to store inventory, just in time production are some of the characteristics of the Process industry. Characteristics that can cause supply chain issues if not planned and handled well.

Process characteristics

Process 02

Batch sized production

With different products to produce, how to set the right size, order and sequence of batches? Finding an optimum between batch size production and switch over time and costs.

Process 03

Limited capacity to store inventory

Inventory cannot be stored too long due to storage constraints. The creation (batches), storage and logistics need to be closely planned and aligned to prevent clogging the system.

Process 04

Just in time production

Just in time seems the right approach, but to what costs? Do you produce longer batches to reduce switch over time and costs but increase the inventory? Or smaller batches?
