What is Short Order in Lean Manufacturing

 

In this article, you will learn what is a short order according to process excellence, lean six sigma, and lean manufacturing activities.

Short Orders Definition

The manufacturing short orders (also called incomplete orders) are those production orders that cannot be accomplished, assembled,  completed, or moved to the next manufacturing stage because one or more components or items are missing or not available physically.

The short orders are on queue status waiting to receive the pending component or item.

It is the result of incorrect planning or coordination.

A short order is a key indicator, effect, or symptoms associated with a root cause not eliminated which is creating an undesirable outcome and wasting of time & resources.  six sigma definitions
