Push versus Pull in lean and your life
The main goal of supply chain management is to reduce overhead operational cost, reduce lead time, improve quality, improve reliability, improve relationships between suppliers and customers, and reduced inventory cost.
There are two separate supply-chain management cycles which include push systems and pull systems.
Push systems are systems in which outputs are pushed from one station to the next as they are completed.
Pull systems are those are systems where one workstation pulls the output from the preceding station as it is needed.
Pull systems replace items as they are withdrawn used to avoid push. This involves flowing product in small batches, pacing the processes to stop overproduction, signaling replenishment via signals and leveling the product mix and quantity over time.
These are the differences in just-in-time push and pull systems by characteristic:
Push and pull in your life activities are those things that keep you motivated. "Push" are the things that you keep pushing because they have to be done and require will power. Will power never lasts, in the long term you have to have "pull". Pull are those things that attract you and make you want to get going and achieve...these are the things that get you up early and keep you up late because they drive you to success, challenge you, and motivate you to be the best .
