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 is complementary to lean manufacturing when it comes to low volumes and complex environments, may provide an answer.

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

Lilly Software - Product Enhancements Remain Its Order 'Du Jour' Part Two: Market Impact


Lilly continues to invest uncompromisingly in R&D, and consequently espouses a convincing broad but compact product portfolio for its target market.

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. Cross-Industry Enhancements Not resting at its laurels, Read More

Made2Manage Systems 'One Year After': Reenergized and Growing Part Three: Market Impact


Part of Made2Manage Systems acquisition strategy includes taking on a more global presence through acquisition of non-US companies that offer software, services, and support, particularly companies that sell direct into non-US countries, although not limited to that. Its growth strategy states that it plans to grow organically via new system sales, customer sales, and customer retention, and also growth via acquisition.

jit theory of constraints  a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP ). 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

Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints


The theory of constraints (TOC) is similar to, yet different from, the lean philosophy. TOC focuses on optimizing production through critical bottlenecks in order to meet market demand.

jit theory of constraints  to lean manufacturing techniques. JIT or lean works best when items have low variability of demand, when production lines can be dedicated to specific product lines, and when lead time from trading partners is reliable. When different product lines and streams use shared resources, TOC might be needed to consider different product mixes in the round. Poor order shipment performance with late deliveries (within shops whose capacity is wasted on anonymous, forecasted orders, instead of expended on actual Read More

PeopleSoft Gathers Manufacturing and SCM Wherewithal Part Three: The Manufacturing Industry


Even before the mega merger, PeopleSoft had already set it sights on a bigger manufacturing presence. PeopleSoft’s acquisition of mid-to-large ERP system developer J.D. Edwards this summer, and most recently demand flow and lean manufacturing software solution from JCIT, might indicate some deep though process rather than a number of impulse initiatives from the past.

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

Nintendo of America, Inc.


With a focus on marketing, sales, and distribution of the company’s interactive entertainment products, Nintendo of America’s 180 “managers of image” market Nintendo’s games throughout the United States and parts of Canada. Because these managers spend the bulk of their time visiting retail operations to successfully brand the Nintendo product, the company was searching for a way to communicate detailed information to them, as well as to the rest of the company’s workforce. Nintendo also wanted to simplify the benefits enrollment process for employees and allow them to change their personal data on their own and at their convenience, without contacting the HR department.

Justification of ERP Investments Part 1: Quantifiable Benefits from an ERP System


Studies that surveyed manufacturers about the impact of ERP systems on firm performance indicate that company size and industry do not affect the results. Benefits have been indicated for large and small firms, whether they make standard or custom products or are in discrete or process manufacturing environments. This section explains the quantifiable benefits in terms of several areas of improvement. Reprinted from Maximizing Your ERP System by Dr. Scott Hamilton.

Improved procurement practices lead to better vendor negotiations for prices, typically resulting in cost reductions of 5 percent or better. Valid schedules permit purchasing people to focus on vendor negotiations and quality improvement rather than on expediting shortages and getting material at premium prices. ERP systems provide negotiation Read More
