Eliminate Excess Inventory in Production — Just in Time

Lean inventory and logistics reduces stock and increases production flow

World Class competitors know the importance of running as lean as the schedule permits by minimizing inventory. But, the challenge manufacturers face is to never allow the desire for lean inventory to trump the sacred ground of on-time delivery.

Once a production file is ready, Mentor’s Valor® MSS material management solution automates delivery of required materials from the warehouse to the correct locations on the shop floor. Since the solution matches the actual real-time demand signals from the machines, production increases without inflating the inventory.
