Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial
Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the

continuous flow lean jit  a practical approach to continuous flow and is fundamental to flow principles and lean concepts because it simplifies the management of the plant floor by grouping products into product families. In this environment, often there is no need to master schedules and to explode forecasts through MRP (which in turn utilizes BOMs) to generate planned component usage since the kanbans are already set for simplified visual replenishment of those components. Still, one should note that kanbans are mostly used at Read More...
Streamlining for Success: The Lean Supply Chain
When flexibility and speed are requisites for success, it’s the lean organization that leads the race. World-class manufacturing organizations know the value of

continuous flow lean jit  being replenished from a continuous flow pacemaker process, between a continuous flow process and other manufacturing processes that are shared by other value streams, and for incoming parts and material being pulled from supplier locations. Supply Chain Execution (SCE) : A subset of Supply Chain Management, this is a framework of execution-oriented applications that enable the efficient procurement and supply of goods, services and information across enterprise boundaries to meet customer-specific Read More...
How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing
Lean manufacturing is a transformational exercise that requires an organization to cast aside long-held beliefs and business processes. The five main steps to

continuous flow lean jit  are replenished by a continuous flow pacemaker process, which falls somewhere between a continuous flow process and other manufacturing processes shared by other value streams, as well as for incoming parts and material being pulled from supplier locations. Some vendors offer strong JIT call-off management functionality as a planning and execution environment for both proactive and reactive sequence deliveries, as well as for frequent electronic kanban deliveries. Using this functionality, final products Read More...
Lean Manufacturing: A Primer
Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical

continuous flow lean jit  muda in Japanese) and continuous improvement are consequences of this. What Constitutes Waste? Implementing a lean philosophy usually leads to cost reduction and employee empowerment, and many people tend to translate lean as mean . This is because, though lean does not necessarily set out to be mean in terms of relentless cost cutting, the approach of maximizing customer value and eliminating hidden waste (i.e., any activity that does not add value to the goods or service in the eyes of the consumer) Read More...
Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations
While lean/flow leverages practices to stay ahead of actual demand, traditional approaches better coordinate secondary, back-office systems like accounting and

Until relatively recently, there have not been many off-the-shelf software applications to help manufacturers institute flow processes, other than cumbersome spreadsheets and internally developed packages or practices to handle some flow techniques, such as line design, line balancing, kanban management, and mixed-model Read More...

Zooming into an Inventory Free Flow
FreeFlow, a provider of business services with a patented technology, aims to help companies improve product life cycle profitability by providing a unique

continuous flow lean jit  into an Inventory Free Flow The convenience of a 24x7 intranet marketplace may be the answer to a company''s end-of-lifecycle (EOL) inventory ills. Entering their products into an online auction portal, companies can sell off their excess inventory to the highest bidder, and buyers can purchase needed items for a steal. Is There a Smarter Way to Handle Excess Active and Obsolete Inventory? Given that one man''s challenge often presents another man''s opportunity, this brings us again to FreeFlow ( Read More...

continuous flow lean jit  to Lean with Oracle Flow Manufacturing Lean execution strategies within enterprises and across supply chains can dramatically reduce cycle times, improve quality, reduce waste, and improve bottom lines. In other words, lean is more than an advantage: it is a competitive necessity. Oracle’s Flow Manufacturing module capabilities in lean execution can enable the transition from a discrete, push-based manufacturing environment to a flow, pull-based one. Read More...
Continuous Improvement Case Study: Taking Baby Steps towards Tangible Benefits
To improve supply chain operations with a fresh look and new ideas, Harris Tea worked with a consulting firm, Supply Chain Consultants. The objective was to

At Harris Tea , continuous improvement includes investing in application software. Already blessed with a strong technology backbone, Harris sought further improvements. To get a fresh look and new ideas, it turned to an outside consultant. Within the process of consultation, management emphasized Harris Tea''s customer-centric Read More...
Continuous Data Quality Management: The Cornerstone of Zero-Latency Business Analytics Part 2: One Solution
Most enterprises fight fires with axes, fire hoses, trucks, and hordes of firemen, but the CDQM approach is a smoke detector. It’s far less expensive to put a

Take, for example, the data issues that arose when Huntington acquired rival company, Systron, and began the process of combining the two companies'' customer accounts into one customer database. What started as an innocent attempt to merge this data became a mess that almost spiraled out of control. The problem began with the two companies'' customer account numbers. Huntington''s were eight numbers long; Systron''s were 10 alphanumeric characters long. When Read More...
The Impact of Lean on Consumer Product Manufacturers
While consumer products manufacturers are relatively recent adopters of lean programs, they are already achieving value through a firm commitment to

Managing Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009
A supply chain management system (SCM) is a critical success factor for implementing lean manufacturing. The SCM system helps define product structure, costing

continuous flow lean jit  area to facilitate small-lot continuous flow production. Component inventory is located in a floor stock area near the work cell, along with other required resources, to support a point-of-use strategy. A work cell represents a simpler alternative for modeling lean scenarios in comparison to the use of Dynamics AX work centers and routing data. You indicate the work cell for producing an item as part of the kanban policies for a fixed or PTO manufacturing kanban. The list of empty kanbans by work cell Read More...
