9 Things to Look For in Lean Accounting Software for Manufacturers
I attended the Lean Accounting Summit in Orlando in September, and I’m still struck by the totally different attitudes of companies that choose lean

Accounting software must be flexible enough to rapidly adapt to business changes on a regular basis. Traditional financial and accounting reports are still required by governmental and fiscal authorities, which means that the ability to support lean and traditional reporting in parallel is another important function of lean accounting software.

continuous lean roa  Knowledge Work The Toyota production system has been on one of the most important schools of thought in operations, and has spawned several spin-offs. All these approaches are based on similar principles that are collectively referred to as “lean” ideas. While a lean approach to manufacturing and services is straightforward, applying lean to knowledge work can be challenging. Find out why, and what you can do about it. 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

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
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
