Quick Response Manufacturing: ERP and Value Chain Acceleration
Whatever the reasons for pursuing a lead-time reduction strategy, time compression across all company processes is critical to growth, and in some cases means

flow manufacturing white paper jit  Repetitive manufacturing and demand flow techniques require a fundamental change in the manufacturing process. It takes into account, and goes beyond, principles that have been used in many time-compression projects, such as small lot sizes, product-oriented layout with local control, JIT and Kanban. It simplifies operations and reduces paperwork by eliminating work orders, reducing items and levels in BOM''s, and incorporating high-level MRP planning on a daily flow basis at a component level rather than Read More...

Component inventory is located in a floor stock area near the work cell, along with other required resources, to support a point-of-use strategy. A work cell represents a simpler alternative for modeling lean scenarios in comparison to the use of Dynamics AX work centers and routing data. You indicate the work cell for producing an item as part of the kanban policies for a fixed or PTO manufacturing kanban. The list of empty kanbans by work cell provides Read More...
Moving Beyond Lean Manufacturing to a Lean Supply Chain
Most lean manufacturing deployments target production operations, but can also be extended to other supply chain processes. To realize the multiplicative

A manufacturing strategy that is based on reduced variability, production to demand, waste elimination, and optimal cycle time will drive over all supply chain success. Manufacturers that cannot control variability will not be able to move toward lean demand driven replenishme Read More...
