The delivery of the products should be “just-in-time”; Agile methodologies iterative building, testing and team environment coincides with this Agile/Lean development and deployment style. No extra items should be ordered from the suppliers and there should not be a huge pile of inventory, or to associate it with Agile “develop working software with every iteration during every 2-week sprint". Temporary or per diem workers should not be hired to deal with “unforeseen” issues you need to deal with issues as an agile team, NOT distribute the working environment making it harder to communicate face to face.
