The term supermarket or grocery store in lean six sigma refers to a predetermined market (storage/inventory). The supermarket carries the necessary "supplies" for a work area that is close by. When a customer (internal/external) needs an item they can retrieve the item from the supermarket. The supermarket then replenishes or restocks their supplies based on the downstream demand. Supermarkets prevent overstocking and help lower inventory levels.
