Abstract

In the paper, a special approach to supply networks’ material flows is posed. The considered strategy is based on the both principles of Lean and agility, beside push and pull of materials. Here, the trade off between positioning of decoupling point throughout an exemplary network, and reduction of inventory level along throughput time is examined. Moreover, autonomous control for material routing and lot-sizes is taken into account. To do so, a discrete-event simulation model is developed to show the performances.
