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

Traditionally, manufacturers have used the concept of economic order quantity (EOQ), which is also known as economic lot size or minimum cost order quantity, to determine their optimal manufacturing batch and lot sizes or quantities of purchased materials. EOQ is a type of fixed order quantity model that determines the amount of an item to be purchased or manufactured at one time, with the intent of minimizing the combined costs of acquiring and carrying 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...
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

In practice, kanban communicates a fixed quantity of demand over a variable time frame, or a variable quantity of demand over a fixed time frame. Neither of these processes adequately address the configuration requirements seen in sequencing. In other words, while kanban systems typically manage the supply or production of items with low Read More...
Manual versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing

In particular, as mentioned earlier on, enterprise systems can be used to improve materials management and consumption within a production cell, and to provide real time monitoring and visibility. Also, since takt time depends on variable customer Read More...

Using this functionality, final products are broken down into specific items, a specific end product is pinpointed and identified via a sequence number or a production identification (ID), and the sequence call-off is sent out when the final production sequence is frozen at the customer line Read More...
