Backflushing
« on: April 01, 2014, 04:23:35 PM »
A means of reducing the number of inventory transactions by relieving (reducing) the inventory count for parts only when the final product is shipped. For example, instead of counting the number of letter “A”s that issued to assembly, we simply count the number of keyboards that we ship and reduce the letter “A” inventory count accordingly. Backflushing gives us an imprecise inventory count that is delayed -but can reduce the transaction cost significantly.
A concept of measurement used to periodically explode an end item’s BOM to calculate how many of each part went into the final product(s). This eliminates much of the shop - floor data collection activity, which is required if each part must be tracked and accounted for during production.
