Mixed-Model Production is the practice of making, assembling or producing several different parts or products (this can also be applicable to services) in varying lot sizes so that the organization produces close to the same mix of products/services that will be sold on the same day. The goal of a mixed-model production tactic is to smooth out the demand of upstream workcenters, cells, suppliers and vendors which results in a reduced inventory, faster changeovers and more accurate replenishment of products ultimately working towards building and or producing in accordance with daily demand.
