The primary objective of production logistics, in accordance with the laws of 7R, is the supply of the right product, in the right quantity and condition, in the right place, at the right time, to the right customer, at the right price. Specific objectives may, however, be different: they may include improvement of flow continuity (e.g. Womack, Rother) or increased reliability and volume of deliveries (Nyhuis & Wiendhal). In his work, nyhuis, in order to analyse and formalise ongoing flow dependencies, suggests the application of nine laws of production logistics. The article includes a description of these nine critical laws of production logistics and the proposal of the author’s own algorithms for use in the quest to improve the continuity of flow.
