Aswo! (Ah, Shucks, We're Out!): Lean Enterprise Inventory Strategies
The books that have been written about "Lean Enterprise" would constitute an imposing library by themselves, but, a few very important aspects seem to have gone unexplored, and are "conspicuous by their absence" once the "journey towards Lean" has begun. To fill these gaps, Eric Matson is writing the "Schmidt-Creek Paddler's Guidebook Series" which will address these issues, and the first, "ASWO!" or "Ah, Shucks, We're Out!" examines the often naughty question of how to plan and manage inventories (of all sorts) in a "Lean-Enterprise" environment.
