The Milk Run

The Milk Run | Supply chain purchasing and innovation | Scoop.it

Milk Run is a lean method to manage logistics that is based on scheduled logistic activities, aimed to replenish empty boxes.

 

You will simply get replenished of what you used. Empty boxes are just a transport-kanban card.

 

Difference between classic transport-kanban method is that when kanban card "calls", material will be transferred from supplier to customer. With this method logistic activities are scheduled so a kanban card will not call a travel; instead it maybe that if you do not have empty boxes, supplier does not replenish anything, or maybe you have many empty boxes so supplier will replenish all of them in one time.

 

Milk Run is applicable when your consumption's material rate is clear: it means you must implement takt time principle in your production.

 

It has not a constraint of production planning because the underlying logic is to replenish empty boxes, also you don't need an MRP to implement Milk Run in your procurement system.
