Some recent articles suggest that we need to rethink about JIT because COVID-19 has disrupted supply chains. In my opinion, ability of top management team may play a vital role in the management of JIT post COVID-19. What do you think? Hi! I am an early career researcher. In 2019, I graduated with a PhD in Accounting from Monash University (that too on my birthday!). In my PhD thesis, I argue that human capital (i.e., ability of the top management team) plays an important role in the efficient management of Just-In-Time Inventory. "Findings suggest that managerial ability contributes to efficiency in JIT inventory management with the extent of such efficiency being conditional on the level of discretion granted to managers and the effective monitoring of such discretion", (Ranjeeni, 2019). Please access the link below for more details: https://lnkd.in/gvZxfN3u My apologies for any errors or omissions as this is my first post aimed to generate a conversation on something that I did for my PhD and still think is applicable post COVID-19. Your kind comments, views and experiences will be helpful in contributing towards my learning and future research as an early career researcher. Thank you!!! 🙂🙂🙂 Reference: RANJEENI, KUMARI (2019): Do More Able Top Management Teams Unconditionally Lead to Better Internal Operations? A Case of ‘Just-in-Time’ Inventory Management.

Answer
JIT has demonstrated to be effective when it is well implemented. Before the pandemic, it was simple to stablish a weak JIT workflow with suppliers with barely no cooperation and minimum understanding of mutual workflows and value chains (especially with suppliers located in Asia). Creating long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships based on trust with all suppliers is at the heart of JIT and Toyota's basic principles; the pandemic has proven not everybody understood it. JIT is more than just a drastic cost reduction with carefully planned lead times for shipping raw materials.
JIT was, is and will still be relevant. In my opinion, JIT will adopt a new name in the upcoming years because business leadership will not trust an “old-fashioned methodology”. Most likely, it will be infused with a risk-based approach to implementation and supplier selection.

Early production of products is also considered as "Excess finished goods inventory" in lean wastes. If early production is considered in both types of wastes such as 'overproduction' and 'Inventory', there will be the chance of recurrence of same waste in different categories. How to avoid this duplication?
Relevant answer
Answer
I feel like SWIMTOOT or USWIMTOO is just a way of identifying waste. Whether the waste is identified as excess inventory or over production is negligible as you have identified the waste anyway. Which ever you pick you want to set that as a standard is your company so people are identifying it as the other type of waste.
Personally anything that is planned production i.e. if you plan early production of products, you've planned to make these so I wouldn't class them as over production.
If I think of castings. The first few off Aluminium Die Cast parts are usually scrap. This is because your trying to get the die up to temperature. The parts are unusable so they cant be classed as inventory. You've planned to manufacture them as part of running the machine in, so you cant class it as over production as you haven't created excess parts, they are un-useable so are scrap.

Triage Decision Making inventory (TDMI) questionnaire 27 questions have three dimensions of cognitive abilities, experience and intuition, and in the study we want to use the 7-question questionnaire "acknowledges using intuition in nursing scale (AUINS)".
1- Is it possible to use the above two questionnaires simultaneously in the study and perform correlation measurement, considering that one of the dimensions of the TDMI questionnaire is intuition?
2- If it is not possible to use simultaneously and the possibility of communication, is it possible to remove the intuition dimension of the TDMI questionnaire? And how can this be done with reason and logic?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello,
Your question is a statistical correlation question about comparing two scales where both scales share a similar dimension. From a statistical viewpoint, I am not sure how to respond. However, from a nursing viewpoint, I believe these 2 scales are complementary and reinforcing. The AUINS scale values emotional awareness during a triage situation. Nurses often "feel" or are otherwise "triggered" to have apprehension or premotion about a patient's description, including what is not being said. In addition, nurses through multiple patient encounters, all encoded somewhere within the nurse, are able to connect on an unseen level (etherial) by some nurse-empaths, or at least pick up cues to aid triage assessment and allocation of resources. I'm thinking rather that separating and searching for a correlation, I think these 2 scales are complementary. A different study might be to look at outcomes in nursing cohort 1 (uses both scales) and nursing cohort 2 (that uses neither scale). Interesting questions! Patty

In the wake of disruption in supply chains fueled by circumstances outside and beyond our control, the discourse then is not necessarily centered on how to build lean supply chains. Extant literature suggests that organizations that practice lean philosophy are more vulnerable to risks and disruptions and thus may take a long time to recover, and bounce back to a state of normalcy. In light of the above assertion, practitioners, academics and experts in recent times are changing the direction of supply chain discourse laying emphasis on building a more resilient organization. Thus, creating organizations that can withstand shocks both from within and outside their control is the expected 'norm'. Building resilient organization necessitates management to undertake activities such as having redundant supplies, facilities, inventories, having slack resources, among others. These practices are in contravention with lean philosophy. Although lean is a great tool that aids in eliminating waste, under the prevailing situations in today's supply chain, is it logical and or, empirically relevant to suggest that lean's potency rather seems insignificant?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think Lean has its place. Within the Factory Walls Lean is still a necessity, maybe even more so at the moment. Volumes have been affected by parts shortages due to the pandemic. However, turnover / profit can be increased by reducing waste, utilising the Kaizen process, driving the reduction of waste in the process and improving quality and improving FTT.
But I agree in some instance it can be a hindrance. Especially if the organisation is running hand to mouth with parts i.e. Just In Time Methodology.

The parent-child connection, on the other hand, is often measured using three primary methods: self-reports, interviews, and observational measures. The test has also been utilized with parents of autistic children, and both maladaptive and adaptive child behavior has been linked to PSI-SF scores (Tomanik, Harris, & Hawkins, 2004).

My lab is looking for a reliable, valid measure of pain for our nonprofit-funded phase 1 clinical trial. We were originally considering the Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) but the paywall (~400) is a bit higher than anticipated. Has anyone had luck with other pain measures similar to the BPI but is either free or more budget-friendly? I did see the McGill Pain Questionnaire, but this appears to require a fee as well (still waiting to hear what that fee will be).
We are looking for a scale that reports both acute and more chronic pain, ideally including history of pain medication/treatment effectiveness. Hence, some of the scales that initially come to mind (e.g., visual analogue scale, numerical rating scale) don't seem like the best fit.

Background of the problem for people non familiar with transfusion:
Every day, hospital transfusion services must guarantee they have enough blood to meet patient transfusion demand. This is very like managing a food stock in a refrigerator but even easier (just one product, one expiration date).
Assumptions:
- RBC (red blood cell) units are kept on a refrigerator with enough capacity
- Maximum expiration date for RBC is 42 days.
- We make a routine order to the blood bank provider (our grocery store) every day from Monday to Friday. We can make additional orders if we run out of stock.
- We practice first in first out.
The model should satisfy the following targets:
- Minimize the expiration rate (the number of RBC units expiring every certain time)
- The less time on the refrigerator the better (eat fresh)
- Avoid extraordinary orders as much as possible (some extraordinary order might be considered to cope with transfusion peaks of demand)
- Note: I have purposely simplified the problem (no considerations of ABO group distribution, crossmatched reserved units, or reduced expiration date of the irradiated blood…).
Non controlled external factors:
- Transfusion rate
- Average remaining time to expiration of the received blood.
What we are looking for is the optimal number of RBC units we must order on a routine basis (M-F) which is the only factor we can adjust to optimize the equation. Resulting figure must be recalculated when transfusion rate or average expiration date of the received units change.
Intuitively, I see how the number of extraordinary orders and RBC freshness are at opposite sides of a balance, because if a higher number of extraordinary orders is tolerated, then it should result in a smaller but fresher RBC inventory. On the other hand, in order to avoid extraordinary orders, you need a greater inventory thus increasing the average age of your products and the risk of expiration.
Any idea or suggestion? Any available script on Excel/SPSS/Stata/R/SQL? Any related bibliography?
I can provide raw data for simulations on demand if someone want to make a collaboration.

Dear Kumar,
In my humble opinion, they are different. Inventory management plays a critical role in balancing supply availability with customer requirements.
The inventory policies are selected based on problem behaviors and policymakers. There are many types of inventory policy of "continuous review" or "periodic review", such as (Q, R), (R, S),(s, S), and (S, T).
You can refer the attached papers where the inventory was solved using the heuristic approaches in stead of exact method (i.e., simulation, response surface methodology, DOE).

Unfortunately, it appeared that they had misunderstood heteroscedasticity and had printed some incorrect regression lines on the graphs. I tried to explain it to them, but I don't know that they ever made any changes.
Anyway, as Abdelwahab Bessaad said, these allometric equations are by category, and they do vary by tree, thus regression is used, but since you would be looking at a lot of trees, relatively speaking, variance would be a smaller problem than for an individual tree.

Sandra Bem's famous Bem Sex Role Inventory has been used since the 1970s to profile masculine and feminine gender roles. Bem argued that those scoring above the median of a sample for BOTH masculinity and femininity are classified as Androgynous and that these are the paragons of mental health because they can adapt to the needs of diverse demands. By contrast, those scoring below the median for both masculinity and femininity are considered undifferentiated and at the highest risk of mental health problems. This is because they score below the social status quo for positive personality traits that predominate the behaviors and expressions of both sexes. So my question is: "who are undifferentiated people"? What characterize them? What contributes to this profile? What can we do to help them? Any thoughts and/or articles would be most appreciated!
Relevant answer
Answer
Sandra Bem introduced in 1974 the idea that gender roles do not necessarily have to be one or the other, and that the person can be highly feminine, highly masculine or neither, thus introducing the concept of androgynous or undifferentiated personalities; So, according to the Bem Sex Roles Inventory (BSRI) individuals can be classified as male, female, androgynous (both male and female) and undifferentiated (neither predominantly male nor predominantly female).
This inventory consists of 60 adjectives of which 20 are stereotypically masculine, 20 are feminine and another 20 do not have gender typification.

I am planning to measure teacher stress in my research. One valid and reliable instrument I believe I have found is Teacher Stress Inventory by Michael J. Fimian (1984).
I was wondering if this measure/instrument is in the public domain and can be used just by citing the author and publication or should it be purchased?
Moreover, where can I have access to this questionnaire?

As low scores on the problem-solving inventory ( PSI ) indicate high levels of PSC, AAS, PC ( the three factors of the inventory).
My questions are:
1-Do low scores mean low arithmetic means?
2-Does the lowest value of the mean for a certain item within the factor means that the student possesses this trait to a large degree? Is the opposite true? ...
For example; after statistical analysis of the students' responses on item 15, which states “When considering solutions to a problem, I do not take the time to assess the potential success of each alternative” has got the highest mean (mean = 4.25, SD = 1.32), does the statistical mean for this item indicates that students have the lowest level of perception related to this item? the least mean was item 18, which states “When making a decision, I compare alternatives and weigh the consequences of one against the other” (mean = 2.84, SD = 1.82), does the statistical mean for this item indicates that students have the highest level of perception related to this item?
3-Which of the items in the inventory are negative and should be reversed in the statistical analysis?
I also applied the inventory after the study and noticed that the means were decreased in the post applying.
When performing a t-test, it was found that there is a statistically significant difference in total degree of PSI where t = 12.21 in favor of pre-questionnaire, also all t values for the factors were statistically significant in favor of pre-questionnaire.
Is the interpretation of this result correct, and that the perception of their problem-solving level increased after applying the module?
Thank you very much for deducting your valuable time in informing me.

Hi,
I would like to ask regarding the use of Ecoinvent database when one could not find the precise data of the chemical input that one needs ( in my case alkylsulfonic phenyl ester and epoxidized soya bean oil). Can I just use 'chemical production, inorganic' or 'chemical production, organic' since these two represent average of multiple chemical substance? Or Do need to look into the literature to find the precise LCI for these two substances? Or any other approach?
Also, if anyone knows the information concerning LCI of these two substances and willing to share, I very much appreciate it.
Thanks.
Relevant answer
The easier approach would be finding LCA studies of the substances, in which their inventories are disclosed. A better approach would be finding information of the production both substances, with which making their inventories. In the following article you can find guidance to generate the inventory depending on the quality of the data you find.
If none of the previous approaches can be applied, the inventory of alternative substances with expected similar environmental impacts can be used as a proxy.

Hello everyone,
I am looking to model an inventory-production process as a G/G/1 queue. The problem statement is as follows:
Customer demand for any particular part is fulfilled from the inventory system. Each unit of customer demand triggers one unit for replenishment through a production process. These replenishment units are grouped together and once an optimum size of the group/batch is reached, a production order is instituted and the batch is manufactured and stored in the inventory system.
When the production order is instituted, there are already a few other orders in the factor-floor due to which the batch under consideration cannot be fulfilled immediately, but needs to wait for its turn.There is no underlying pattern in production order fulfilment, rather it happens according to an arbitrary distribution pattern with a lot of ad-hoc decision making.
I am trying to arrive at a reliable estimation of the inventory in the system, taking into account the batch size per order and the probability distribution function.
Back-orders are not important for this problem and we are not taking into account lost sales.
This means,
I need to estimate E(Inventory), which, from my understanding is coded as given in the picture attached.
I am not sure of the probability model I should adopt, as there is no underlying probability distribution on the data-set I am working on. I am also not able to find a reliable estimate of the probability for the inventory replenishment system, while there have been estimates for stochastic modeling of production systems, on the basis of the G/G/1 model, taking into account the shop-floor utilization rate ( From the book stochastic modeling of manufacturing systems- a very detailed seminal text : Buzacott, J.A. and J.G. Shanthikumar. (1993). Stochastic Models of Manufacturing Systems. Prentice-Hall )
Any leads in this regard would be useful.

ERROR:

An error was detected at simulation time 365.0
DSTAT 0 is not in valid range 1-16
The statistics I am collecting with DAVG are among others the average inventory level and amount backordered. For the average inventory level for example I chose Output statistic and then entered the expression "DAVG(Inventory On Hand)" which I had defined as variable.

I think you are receiving this error when you use the OUTPUTS element. If so, here is the solution. In DSTATS, enter unique numbers yourself for each time persistent statistic. Then in OUTPUTS element refer to these by their numbers instead of names. For example,
DSTATS: 1,Inventory: 2,Backlog;
OUTPUTS: DAVG(1): DAVG(2);

Accounts Receivable(gross amount) 3,000 6,700

Unearned Revenue 9,000 11,000
Assuming that Jean Co. did not write off any Accounts Receivable. Please compute the amount of cash received from customers.
(I am sorry the messy format. There is a picture can look. Thanks)
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi,
I am making a few assumptions here, in absence of additional information:
a. Your Unearned Revenues are not in your Sales and they are not cash, just provisions.
b. Your COGS and OPEX are unknown...thus the entire cost structure is unknown. Assuming zero, which is probably wrong.
c. Investments are unknown. Assuming zero, also probably wrong.
d. The fact you have zero sales accounted for in Jan 1 but you have Receivables makes me assume those are spill-over from the previous fiscal year.
Gross cash from sales: $132'000 - difference in inventory - difference in receivables = $ 127'300.
Actually, you should have a situation which compares identical periods: Dec 31, 2019 vs Dec 31, 2020 for example. This case you are showing is very hypothetical and doesn't reflect a real situation, too much data is missing.

Does anybody know about an mathematical optimization model which combines vendor managed inventory with fixed lot-sizes for production? That is, a model that performs a simultaneous production and delivery (transportation) planning with respect to production and transportation lot sizes.
So the keyfigures should be fixed lot-sizes for production, transportation assets, capacities and costs from vendor to VMI-stock, known demand on customer (retailer) side and inventory restrictions for the VMI-stock.
It will be also helpful if you just know about any paper or similiar which has recognized this problem.

In daily life single period and multi period inventory system is very necessary things. When the selling period is fixed that is we cant sell things outside that fixed time then it is called may be single period. Lets talk about it what is the actual definition.
Relevant answer
Answer
Single period inventory models are used typically for determining the optimal order quantity for a perishable product. The most famous example is the Newsboy (Newsvendor) problem, in which the demand for newspapers for a given day is random, there is a cost of overstocking (unsold papers) and understocking (lost profits). The objective is to minimize the expected daily cost and the decision variable is the number of papers to buy (for reselling). this model is useful for any other item that cannot be stocked to be sold in another period, you have to sell it during the period or it is wasted. Many products fit this category: Christmas trees, Halloween costumes, or any other item that is special day or event themed. Fresh produce and meat can be though of in this category as well.
On the other hand, multi-period models are used for items that can be stocked for long periods of time, and demand in subsequent periods can be satisfied from the inventory. The basic EOQ model is the simplest of these models.

I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but I really want to know. I've just read a journal about psychometric evaluation of revised-parental emotion regulation inventory (PERI2). In that journal, it said that PERI2 has a good fit when measured in CFA. However, one of its dimension, which is reappraisal dimension, didn't have good concurrent validity (it didn't correlate with other tests that measure similar constructs). Therefore, what happened to PERI2's construct validity? Is it still valid or not?
Thank you
Relevant answer
Answer
It's not a stupid question at all; the issues are complex.
It's difficult to know for sure without reading the article for more details, but it sounds like the CFA supports a conclusion that the items included in the PERI2 inventory of measures have the number of dimensions expected, and that those dimensions are comprised of the expected subsets of the items.
However, the lack of concurrent validity for what was expected to be a reappraisal dimension suggests that this dimension is actually measuring something else instead of reappraisal as that construct has previously been conceptualized.
The question of whether PERI2, as a whole, is valid or not may be unanswerable. It sounds like PERI2 is not a single construct, but rather a multidimensional inventory intended to measure several constructs. Construct validity is a property of each separate dimension, not a property of the whole inventory.
The theoretical model underlying the inventory is mostly supported by the results you've summarized, except for the part of the model that concerns the reappraisal dimension. That part of the model might be wrong (though I would not use the term "invalid" to describe its incorrectness, to avoid confusion with how the term is used when talking about measurement).
Or the model might be right, but the items used to measure reappraisal might be invalid (because they actually measure something other than reappraisal).
Or previous theoretical and/or empirical work in this field might be wrong about which other constructs ought to correlate with reappraisal (and therefore, about what other variables are appropriate to use for checking on the concurrent validity of a reappraisal measure).
Deciding among these 3 possibilities will depend on whether one has better reasons (on other grounds) to doubt the model, the measures, or the prior conceptualization of reappraisal. And that will depend on what else you know about this field of research.
