Supporting the Lean Value Stream with Technology Solutions


In today’s manufacturing environment, suppliers and manufacturers alike need to be highly selective when choosing an enterprise resource planning vendor to support their product-specific Lean value-streams. Technology is a key element in the success of Lean manufacturing, and should be selected with an eye to the entire value-stream. Infor examines all elements of a Lean value-stream in this must-read white paper.

ERP systems should be selected with an eye to the entire value stream not just the supply chain… Lean and ERP: Perfect Together In a perfect world, prior to product manufacture, a Lean value stream would be identified to the minutest detail and then an ERP system would be implemented to support it. However, the speed of a global economy dictates otherwise; with insufficient up-front time to optimize the value stream, it is essential to inc Read More

How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing

Case Study: Meyn Radically Simplifies Its Quotation Process


Dutch company Meyn experienced rapid growth to become the world’s leading manufacturer of poultry processing equipment. But its quote production process still lagged behind—often taking up to a week to produce a quote. Meyn realized that it needed a configure, price, quote (CPQ) tool that would allow the sales team to quote quickly at the initial stage of the sales cycle and that would be able to generate detail for those cases that were further along. Read up on the benefits Meyn achieved with the Tacton CPQ tool.
