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.

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

Lean Tools and Practices that Eliminate Manufacturing Waste


A number of lean manufacturing tools and practices have long been used to reduce manufacturing waste. These include the five S's, visual controls, standardized work, mistake proofing, total productive maintenance, cellular manufacturing, single-digit setup, pull systems, sequencing, activity-based costing, and leveled production.

For example, in an assembly operation, if each correct part is not used, a sensing device detects that a part was unused and shuts down the operation, thereby preventing the assembler from moving the incomplete part to the next station or beginning another operation. Total Productive Maintenance Lean manufacturing further requires manufacturers to address equipment productivity issues through the adoption of total productive maintenance ( TPM ), which is a Read More

Reducing the Cost of Systems Operations


Disintermediation is the process of removing redundant intermediaries from a systems management infrastructure. Once vital to systems monitoring, proprietary agents are now made largely redundant by native management tools, emerging standards and agentless monitoring architectures. Centauri makes disintermediation possible by providing a low-cost event management solution that unifies performance data and event messages under a common umbrella. This paper describes how you can take advantage of the disintermediation opportunity and minimize the risks of migrating from working proprietary data collectors to a new native-agent based solution.

However, disintermediation is not a panacea and organizations embarking on such a strategy need to be careful not to throw the baby out with the bath water . Proprietary management tools continue to have their place, particularly in more mission-critical applications where large volumes of Read More

Going Lean Step By Step with IFS Applications


In the relentless pursuit of profitability and competitiveness, more and more companies are turning to lean manufacturing to reduce or eliminate waste in their production processes. Once confined to the automotive industry, lean principles are becoming standard operating procedure in many industries today. The reason is simple: When implemented with a good performance management system, lean principles have a proven track record of operational and strategic success, which ultimately translates into increased value to the end customer. This paper illustrates how IFS Applications supports lean principles, particularly in the many manufacturing environments that require both rate-based (takt-driven) and order-based shop-floor execution.

Lean Manufacturing


In the manufacturing arena, lean is a top topic. And though companies expect a big payoff from the lean approach to manufacturing—including increases in production capacity and product quality, reduced production time and inventories, etc.—there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ philosophy of applying lean principles to every manufacturing organization. Find out how you need to view lean to get the most out of it for your particular organization.
