Implications of "just in time inventory systems" during a crisis

Many companies today use a kind of inventory system called "just in time inventory." Product use is measured over time, e.g. a year, to set inventory levels (e.g. month by month). The system reports on inventory "available" month by month. End users see only the amt available for the current month, not the total inventory on hand.


Real time inventory status is needed during a crisis.
