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  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 t Read More...

Lean Manufacturing: Reaping the Rewards of Lean through Response Management
For years, manufacturers have been driven by sales forecasts and the need to maximize production efficiency at every level of operation. But in order to be

continuous flow lean  and higher productivity. Ford''s continuous flow method worked well in the production of a single, repetitive item, however the general population gradually began to demand product variation''something that Ford''s system was incapable of delivering. To meet growing demands for greater product efficiency, companies began to departmentalize functions. For example, they would group welders together in one area, painters in another, and harness assemblies in yet another. This allowed each department to 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  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...

continuous flow lean  Cash Flow in Focus While Driving Business Performance One of the most basic business axioms, held dear by all firms but especially small companies, is that cash flow is king. Customer payments are essential for fueling all other business activity, from staff salaries, to raw materials, to rent. Growing firms need to be especially attentive to cash flow because sales increases typically require new investments associated with product or service production before payments are received.

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  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...
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  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...
