sequenced delivery

Popular Terms
A supply chain ordering and inventory management tool which governs the flow of raw materials to the manufacturer and of the manufactured item to the first tier customer. The goal is to have the materials arrive at the manufacturing facility within hours of use thereby creating zero standing inventory and eliminating the expense and damage risk of stocking and pulling materials. The delivery schedule is based upon a forecast for delivery, manufacturing lead times and material availability. Also called just-in-time delivery.
