For instance, the traditional idea of keeping all available resources busy all the time remains appealing to executives, because of the seductive fallacy that it is possible to make a great deal of money 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

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
Lean and World Class Manufacturing and the Information Technology Dilemma-The Loss of Corporate Consciousness
Companies relying on manual implementation and support for lean and world class methodologies risk losing corporate consciousness. Avoid the pitfalls of lost

As consciousness decreases, the ability to quickly assess an enterprise based on the impact of a changing environment is lost, and with it, agility—a cornerstone of lean manufacturing—is lost. The resulting paradox has led many companies to abandon their pursuit of lean manufacturing or to settle for a sub-optimal mixed-mode approach. Thus the loss of corporate consciousness occurs, by default. Consciously Weighing the Business Case for Read More
