Kawasaki Plant Switches to Electronic Kanban System Using LANSA''s Technology
There was a new LANSA case study released yesterday that really grabbed my attention. LANSA is a Chicago-based developer and IT services provider that is

jit kanban inventory  operates using a just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing environment in their assembly plant in Lincoln, Nebraska, where a paper card-based Kanban inventory method has been successfully used for a long time. However, according to the manufacturer, this system has its own issues related to the cards themselves and employee discipline issues. So a decision was made to develop a new electronic Kanban system in-house using the existing IBM i LANSA ERP and its brand new development tool. As a result, a team of Read More

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

Indeed, where the order mix changes or not all resources are dedicated to lean flow manufacturing, then kanban sizes must continuously be reevaluated. In these situations, a theory of constraints (TOC) approach is Read More

Also, labor exploitation caused cost of goods sold (COGS) to shift to purchase materials. Planners needed to know the cost of material allocations immediately after orders were placed, but buyers purchasing raw materials need to know the sales plan months in advance. A common database had to be developed: enterprise resource planning was born. Read More
