Lean Manufacturing: A Primer
Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical areas of hidden waste are over-production, waiting, transportation, over-processing, motion, excessive inventory, and defective units.
: Lean Manufacturing: A Primer Lean Manufacturing: A Primer P.J. Jakovljevic - February 13, 2006 Read Comments Introduction It is not exactly breaking news that, due to the need for driving down costs and increasing efficiency, manufacturers (if not enterprises of all kinds) are increasingly subject to massive pressures. These pressures, however, often invalidate the traditional materials requirements planning (MRP) batch- and push-based production planning and associated economies of scale product costing
How to Choose a Manufacturing System
Your Challenge: Get Decision Makers' Approval for a Manufacturing System. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-Bound. If you’ve worked for more than one manufacturing company, you know that each one is different. Different processes, systems, problems—all these variations mean you need a system tailored to your needs. And with so many available solutions, you could spend months looking at demos, and still not find it. However, you can start by asking yourself eight simple questions.
: duplicate data entry of electronic leads and transactions. Customer self-service capabilities to give customers access to their order status through your Web site. This capability dictates how well the program prevents mistakes from getting into your system. The program should test for errors such as duplicate customers and vendors, incorrect item numbers, and unreasonable amounts and dates. Your system should notify the operator of unusually high quantities or unit prices for certain types of items and

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 is complementary to lean manufacturing when it comes to low volumes and complex environments, may provide an answer.
: The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena P.J. Jakovljevic - February 21, 2006 Read Comments Limitations of Flow Manufacturing Just as manufacturing realities are continuously changing, so is lean thinking evolving. 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
High Efficiency in Manufacturing Operations
It can be very challenging for manufacturers to both drive efficiency gains and then translate these gains to bottom line results. This paper examines what is driving manufacturers to focus on creating more efficient manufacturing operations; identifies the mix of strategies, business capabilities, and technology enablers that are most likely to ensure long-term success; and ends with specific recommendations for success.

Manufacturing: Realizing Enterprise ROI
Today more than ever, companies are looking for near-term return on investment (ROI)—and the sooner, the better. That’s why successful solution vendors must now use a much more analytical approach to selling. Customers want assurances that an investment will pay for itself over an acceptable time period—either by increasing the top line, decreasing operating expenses, or both.

: Demand-driven Planning in Manufacturing Demand-driven Planning in Manufacturing P.J. Jakovljevic - August 9, 2005 Read Comments Push versus Pull In traditional manufacturing, the time and cost of changeover to produce different products is high, as are the costs of inventory, planning, and expediting. Thus, goods are pushed through production at levels determined by often inaccurate scheduling and forecasting tools common in material resource planning (MRP II) and enterprise resource planning (ERP)
ERP for Green Supply Chain Management in Manufacturing
Can an ERP system help in green supply chain management? Find out in this comprehensive report. Manufacturers are facing pressure from regulators and customers to document their impact on the environment, including not only the simple carbon footprint, but other gas emissions, discharges to waterways, landfills, and product life cycle impacts. How can enterprise software help?

RoHS and WEEE focus on certain heavy metals, specifically lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium. In Europe, these regulations also cover the flame retardants polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), while states like California do not, as of yet, deal with these substances in their RoHS regulations. California does, however, already have separate regulations
