dc.description.abstractA modular model named "Total Inventory Planning and Flow Control" is developed to better plan and control a manufacturing environment. The research into the philosophies, ideas and tools used by two apparently conceptually different manufacturing systems Manufacturing Resource Planning and Just-In-Time - shows that: * The main goals of Manufacturing Resource Planning and Just-In-Time are very similar; * There appears to be different tools used by the two systems, Manufacturing Resource Planning and Just-In-Time; * The two systems have different approaches to some of the manufacturing factors; * Both, Manufacturing Resource Planning and Just- In-Time, have "blind spots" in their system; * By combining selected complementary philosophies, ideas, concepts and tools from the two systems, a synergistic affect is created that overcomes the differences between the systems and covers the "blind spots" which occur in each system separately.en
