Manual versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing


All good lean systems have both physical systems in the plant and near real time information technology backbones that centralize data. The primary advantage of enterprise systems is that they can handle considerably more information than can be accommodated manually.

eam information lean manufacturing  a vital role in streamlining the supply chain (see Moving Beyond Lean Manufacturing to a Lean Supply Chain ). Namely, while the lean factory may use kanban pull signals to move product more efficiently through the manufacturing process and out of the door, it is missing the feedback loop from the factory to other functional departments within the organization or to the entire supply chain. That information is primarily transmitted and received via enterprise systems. How Can IT Support Lean Read More

Process Manufacturing: Industry Specific Requirements Part Three: Textiles


As with any manufacturing operation, process manufacturing has special system requirements such as formulas, unit of measure conversions, and packaging recipes. However, within the realm of process manufacturing, specific industries have needs that are more critical than others. This article explores these critical needs for the food and beverage, chemical, and a hybrid industry (textiles), so that you can focus on these requirements when evaluating enterprise-wide software.
