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...
Step Up to Lean Manufacturing-Make Value Flow Through Your Bottleneck
Manufacturers everywhere are turning to “lean manufacturing” to help them combat competition from low-cost countries and meet the increasing demands from

continuous flow lean  elimination of waste and continuous improvement in order to meet pull-driven customer demand. 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...
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

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...

The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena
Lean principles are difficult to employ in complex environments, but materials requirement planning has well-known limitations. The theory of constraints, which

For example, traditionally, given competitive realities, it was almost exclusively automotive companies that deployed lean techniques such as kanban and sequencing. Today, however, there are some strong indications that only one in five companies using kanban are in the automotive industry. This is Part Six of a multi-part note. Customarily, lean endeavors lead almost inevitably to flow manufacturing, focused factories, 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

continuous flow lean  setting goals to implement continuous improvement culture and methods, while reducing inventory and assets (41%) However, their relatively recent adoption of Lean means consumer products manufacturers still face the challenges of adapting to cultural changes, with 91% citing this as their top challenge to Lean (Figure 1). Surprisingly though only 34% report that getting top management engaged as an issue, versus 42% of companies across industry, perhaps an indication that the blush has not yet faded from Read More...
