French term or phrase: en flux tirés
It was found in a French logistics article, and the sentence is "La philosophie...est un système de livraison en flux tirés"

Explanation:
"flux tirés" is the same as "flux tendus" or "juste à temps" in production (and probably logistics).
Which translates as "just-in-time" (JIT), according to my dics. (Lexique EN>FR des termes relatifs à la qualité), but surely other sources.

Here, we would have: "The philosophy (...) is a just-in-time [or JIT] delivery system.

Thanks, the fact that it is the same as "flux tendus" and "juste à temps" clears things up for me.

  -> Although I hardly see any relation with philosophy

agree  Arthur Borges: I'll meditate the link to philosophy too, François, but JIT is right on target :)
