Lean is not just a tool, but also is a culture, philosophy, process, and methodology. A main goal in becoming more lean, to become more efficient and profitable at every iteration, can be brought about in ways such as analyzing end-to-end processes and determining how to deliver more with less and becoming more organized. Improved results Read More

implementing lean  Kanban Alternatives in Lean Manufacturing Kanban—the Japanese term for physical or visual signs that trigger replenishment, which can be a useful part of lean manufacturing—is not a good fit in some situations. Alternatives to kanban can also eliminate waste in lean production by addressing inventory, materials, and replenishment process needs. Learn more on how you can find alternatives to kanban to make your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system “leaner.” Read More

Elimination of nonvalue-add activities and personnel, along with streamlined processes and a roles-based implementation methodology will always reduce wasted time and money. It’s a model that can deliver implementations on budget and on time consistently. Read More

However, aerospace and defense (A&D) government regulations impose very different business practices from those followed in the commercial sector. Can lean manufacturing principles really work in A&D? The answer: it depends on the architecture of the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Read More
Front-office Lean-Taking Lean Manufacturing Beyond the Shop Floor
Lean manufacturing practices are employed to some degree on almost every manufacturing floor, but many companies aren't realizing the real benefits of lean by

implementing lean  operation can benefit from implementing lean practices in their front office operations. The only pitfall of following a lean front office strategy is that a small company with a simple business model may adopt too rigorous a lean program, which would have the effect of bogging down their operations rather than eliminating waste. Formal lean programs run by certified professionals are fine for some organizations, while others can benefit most from adopting one or two practices to eliminate waste where it 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

implementing lean  leveled production is by implementing takt time (the term is based on the German word for an orchestra conductor's baton, used to regulate the speed, beat, and timing at which musicians play), which means basing the production rate on an estimate of how many units per hour must be processed at each work canter in order to meet market demand. Takt time sets the pace of production to match the rate of customer demand, and becomes the heartbeat of any lean production system. As the pacemaker of a lean Read More

This statement allows people to apply lean principles in broader circumstances than manufacturing. Following this idea, I’d like to define lean product development (LPD) as this: LPD is focused on developing more products better and with use of fewer Read More

This is because, though lean does not necessarily set out to be mean in terms of relentless cost cutting, the approach of maximizing customer value and eliminating hidden waste (i.e., any activity that does not add value to the goods or service in the eyes of the consumer) inevitably leads to the removal of unnecessary operating costs Read More

The definition of kanban policies governs the creation and behavior of kanban tickets, as described in part one of this series (please see A Primer on Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics ). Case studies provide one approach for understanding how kanbans support variations in lean practices, including the case where a work Read More

But fax technology has come a long way, and can be incorporated with application programming interfaces and multifunction print (MFP) devices. In fact, new enterprise fax architecture is often more flexible and modular than other modes of communication, such as e-mail and instant messaging. Get connected with news on how fax technology can enhance your business processes. Read More

Lean projects need to be funded and driven by a set of consistent strategies, goals, and objectives with pre-defined metrics that are tied to them. Typically departments, especially the plant floor, develop measurements that isolate productivity measures. Supervisors develop metrics to optimize flow through the individual cells and, in some Read More

The trouble is further compounded by the army of software providers (including enterprise resource planning [ERP], supply chain management [SCM], manufacturing execution systems [MES], and product lifecycle management [PLM] providers, as well as best-of-breed, bolt-on lean specialists) that have been hyping their lean Read More
