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 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
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
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

continuous flow lean  specific flow manufacturing training, continuous discipline and process improvement mindsets (e.g., zero defects, zero setup, the use of standardized components, and zero inventory). 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
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

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

Continuous Improvement Offers CMMS Maintenance Benefits
Computer maintenance management system (CMMS) packages are excellent tools for collecting, analyzing, and reporting data and can offer insight into a process

continuous flow lean  on results, which implies continuous improvement. A CMMS package provides an excellent tool for collecting, analyzing, and reporting unlimited amounts of data. However, the difficulty is distilling the information into a form that can be used to make better decisions, and to continuously improve processes. Take, for instance, the process by which work is requested. Is maintenance operations satisfied by the average response time? Is there a disproportionate percent of rush orders, especially from a few Read More
