    I have also been looking for such a platform unsuccessfully. I am now more of the mind that such a platform does not exist explicit for our skill sets. I found an instance where such a platform was created for Tuck Business school. Perhaps this site, with the development of best practice processes, could be that clearing house platform for volunteering our skills on projects.

    Ms. Lee,

    Like most things the answer is, “it depends.” Kanban systems are very effective to replenish supply but require knowledge of lead times, estimated consumption/demand quantities and pretty reliable delivery of the supply. I can only speak from experience but having thousands of components or more in a kanban system can work just fine, although I haven’t done one with millions of SKUs. MRP planning usually does worse when the above information is not accurate or demand cannot be statistically planned. Both systems suffer in low demand situations and tend to drive to higher inventories. There are a few alternatives but email me separately and we can discuss further if you would like.
