  • Batch
  • Discreet

All use a mixture of stock movements

  • Back flushing
  • Formal Issue
  • Kanban
  • LOT/Batch control
  • Serial numbers

What are the issues?

  • Which stock movement types are the most practical?
  • How do we define the Bill of Materials and Operations to get the most out of the information fed back from the shop floor?
