The information flow is invisible, but it causes the material flow. Integrated systems ,controlexternal logistics, coordinating delivery from suppliers who feed the plant with rough or finished parts asneeded. Integrated systems also drive internal logistics, regulating material movement in theplant to feed the assembly line. They link stores and processes with material handling devices, creating a continuous and synchronous flow with minimum inventory. Another role of integrated systems is computer program monitoring.

ProcessingParts Water in the river always flows from a starting point to an ending point. It does not stop and rest. Likewise in the factory, work flow must allow parts to be processed fromstart to finish with no stops.
