Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial
Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the

jit lean manufacturing flow  For more detail on JIT and lean manufacturing and on their impact on ERP, see Trends Affecting Manufacturers and ERP . However, flow manufacturing leverages some additional techniques helping manufacturers create any product on any given day and quantity, including the quantity of one (i.e., through the so-called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times to fill customer orders quickly. In particular, flow manufacturing leverages mathematical tools to Read More...
Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations
While lean/flow leverages practices to stay ahead of actual demand, traditional approaches better coordinate secondary, back-office systems like accounting and

jit lean manufacturing flow  also caters to both JIT that is used for build-to-order or final assembly manufacturing, and to lean manufacturing, which is suitable for build-to-demand pull for finished and component items. Namely, most companies will still use MRP to ascertain longer-term dependent demand (i.e., based on forecasts), but replenishment will be based on independent demand (i.e., actual customer orders), with closely managed inventory buffers. Customer demand cannot be predicted months ahead, since nothing is that Read More...
How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing
Lean manufacturing is a transformational exercise that requires an organization to cast aside long-held beliefs and business processes. The five main steps to

To that end, JIT sequencing software tools provide a direct link with the assembly line, taking into account last minute changes to the production schedule, while still operating within acceptable delivery parameters. This visibility allows comparison of OEM requirements with the execution plans, and their adjustment as necessary. Any changes in requirements are rapidly identified, planned for, and communicated to production and down through to the lower tiers of the supply chain. This has the 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

jit lean manufacturing flow  lean manufacturing techniques and JIT sequencing. Both are execution-oriented, since both respond to demand in near real time. However, lean manufacturing customarily tends to focus on the replenishment and supply of commodity parts (i.e., parts that are shipped in standard packs by the dozen or as case lots), while JIT sequencing concentrates on unique (or configured) parts, which are shipped individually or shipped with other configured parts of the same kind. In practice, kanban communicates a fixed 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...
