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...
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...
