Purpose: This paper shows the effects of using Minomi on the provision of long items in the plant area. In details it will be evaluated if the Minomi principle is usable for the provision of long item material at the manufacturing area and what improvements can be achieved. Definitions of the term Minomi and the term long item: The term long item is used in the logistic sector for all materials that are longer than 2.5 meters, require individually packing and have a relatively small cross section [1,2]. The term Minomi has not been clearly defined. In practise, the term Minomi is often associated with a system that does not use boxes for the material provision [3]. Findings: Through the case studies, it has been found that additional advantages can be obtained by using Minomi for the provision of long items than the other existing methods.
