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

jit theory of constraints  environment, however, the kanban JIT approach no longer makes sense, since the product mix by product type, routings, and process times becomes widely divergent, causing the prediction of kanban sizes to be impractical and temporary, or wandering bottlenecks to appear all over the shop floor. 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...
Trends Affecting Manufacturers and ERP Part Three: Four More Trends
The evolution of ERP systems has been driven by the emergence of new business practices and information technologies. These have been supported by the growing

APS logic has been incorporated into some ERP systems as the primary engine for coordinating supply chain activities. Many ERP systems provide APS logic as a supplement to MRP logic, such as a finite scheduling module. The following case study highlights some of the issues in integrating APS logic with MRP logic. Case Study: Integrating MRP Logic and an APS Application One ERP software vendor integrated a stand-alone APS application wi Read More...

However, flow manufacturing leverages some additional techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day (i.e., through the so called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times to fill customer orders ever more quickly. Flow manufacturing in particular leverages mathematical tools to automate some of the aspects of lean Read More...

Drum-Buffer-Rope is a TOC approach for regulating the flow of work-in-process (WIP) at, or near, the full capacity of currently the most restricted resource in the manufacturing chain. To that end, companies should never release material before the earliest calculated material requirements date, and they should release only enough material to match product flow.

To that end, TOC contends that every business operation has, or should have, one bottleneck (capacity constrained resource) that determines the overall operation throughput. By exploiting that resource and by adding buffers to feed it and keep it highly utilized, a business should increase its overall throughput, and, if it does while concurrently maintaining or reducing expenses, it will logically improve profit margins. Accordingly, M2M Advanced Read More...
