Store replenishment collaboration involves both the retailer and manufacturer in a collaborative arrangement that includes sharing information on retail events and store POS forecasts. Both parties also work together to use information such as demand forecasts, store clustering, presentation and safety stock targets, assortment optimization, order sizing, and lead times and distribution methods. The Read More...

continuous lean roa  Enterprise in Complex ETO This paper demonstrates how IFS Business Modeler and IFS Applications support the principles of developing a lean enterprise, normally associated with repetitive manufacturing, for engineer-to-order (ETO) organizations. It demonstrates how process improvements apply equally to office-based functions as they do to manufacturing, installation, and service activities. Read More...
Supply Chain Planning - Issues for Continuous Chemical Companies
The continuous chemical industries typically share an objective of running at near 100% utilization. This and other realities yield unique requirements for a

continuous lean roa  Planning - Issues for Continuous Chemical Companies Why SCP for a Continuous Chemical Company? Why does a continuous chemical company need a supply chain planning system? Because the high fixed cost of the plant drives a management objective of 100% capacity utilization. A common approach to this utilization objective is to set prices at a low enough level to drive to 100% utilization. As utilization approaches 100%, the demand for perfection in the supply chain plan increases. This, and other operating Read More...

continuous lean roa  Operational Improvements That Last From Islands of Improvement to Enterprise-wide Excellence Many discrete manufacturers have adopted lean manufacturing approaches, but haven’t pursued lean improvement methods. Even those that have report only small, local benefits. A holistic approach is needed to see the long-term benefits of lean. To find out if your company is ready to make lean improvements, you need to ask key questions. Discover what they are, and how to start down the path to leaner Read More...

continuous lean roa  Study: Leading Automotive Supplier Accelerates Lean Operations with EnterpriseIQ In the competitive auto industry, Nissen Chemitec America knows the need for lean manufacturing. Its legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) system was preventing the company from adopting lean principles, and so in 2003 it looked for an ERP tailored for contract manufacturers serving the auto industry. Learn how the new system helps the company stay lean within the confines of compliance and changing customer demands. Read More...
From Lean Manufacturing to Lean Supply Chain: A Foundation for Change

continuous lean roa  Lean Practices and ERP Many organizations are undertaking some form of lean initiative, but if one were to ask one hundred different people, one would probably different explanations from each person. With a variety of methods, techniques, and terms bandied about, many are forced to use the same definition that the late Justice Potter Stewart used for pornography: “I know it when I see it.” Shop floor practices that move inventory to the point of consumption, like kanban, are also Read More...
Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints
The theory of constraints (TOC) is similar to, yet different from, the lean philosophy. TOC focuses on optimizing production through critical bottlenecks in

It is likely that elevating the constraint will stop it from being a constraint, but a new constraint will come to light. One then has to exploit, subordinate, and elevate this new constraint. DBR Explained The DBR process is used within TOC to manage resources in order to maximize throughput. In simplified terms, throughput becomes the critical index of production performance. The barrier to maximum Read More...

continuous lean roa  Manufacturing: Enabling the Lean Six Sigma Enterprise Enabling lean manufacturing and six sigma principles to improve operations requires a nontraditional approach. The old idea that lean manufacturing and six sigma principles don’t require IT isn’t valid anymore. Enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management (SCM) applications are critical for enabling holistic, lean manufacturing operations, and work hand-in-hand to better enable consumption—not forecasts—to drive Read More...
