An integrated production system is a system that views the production, distribution, serving and ordering of meals as one uninterrupted supply chain stretching from the patient to the kitchen. To meet the stakeholders demands of flexibility, productivity, low cost, freshness etc. production must consist of as few steps as possible. When using the philosophies in Lean Manufacturing a concept obeying the above constraints can be created. The focus is turned to time and work planning in production, core competences in production and how to meet consumer demands. This means that the system is able to handle both consumer demands for flexible, freshly prepared menus and food service manager demands for up-to-date production systems.
