David McPhetrige has more than thirty years of experience in lean and flow, MRP, inventory optimization, information technology, cost accounting and financial analysis, across a broad range of industries.
Since 1994, David has implemented lean, optimizing supply chains worldwide in scores of facilities, including medical-device and other regulated environments — and in industries from plant nurseries to machine shops, from high-tech to low-tech.
He has worked with volumes and demands from thousands per day to several per year, and has done planning and scheduling from ERP to spreadsheet. He has implemented MRP/ERP systems, including Oracle and MANMAN, and has led, driven, and developed many post-implementation MRP/ERP enhancements.
David and his wife live in California.
