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

Today''s concept of lean manufacturing grew from TPS, and the name lean stems from its driving principle to use less of everything (i.e., less labor, less space, less inventory, less movement, etc.) than traditional manufacturing processes, while producing a greater variety of products. In other Read More...
Enterprise Resource Planning Vendors Address Lean Manufacturing

Kanban One of QAD MFG/PRO Lean Manufacturing''s more recent functions is improved kanban card management with greater automation and simplification of kanban card release, sequence enforcement (to ensure that individual kanbans are consumed and filled in the proper sequence), and more comprehensive kanban simulation. These functions augment existing features, such as creating kanban loops, defining production processes to supply them, and tracking kanban signals. The mo Read More...
Manual versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing
All good lean systems have both physical systems in the plant and near real time information technology backbones that centralize data. The primary advantage of

It is interesting to note, however, that even in such cases, material requirements planning (MRP) systems still can be used to hold core master data on items and bills of material (BOM), though these records have to be tweaked with an eye toward lead time-oriented information. Some lean purists go even further, and believ 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

kanban lean manufacturing jit  illustrate the difference between kanban and other 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 sam 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

kanban lean manufacturing jit  in five companies using kanban are in the automotive industry. This is Part Six of a multi-part note. Customarily, lean endeavors lead almost inevitably to flow manufacturing, focused factories, or cellular manufacturing. This is because a key focus of lean is to do only what is needed. It is the polar opposite of the traditional economies of scale, with their large batch approach and resulting long lead times and bloated inventory levels. Large lot sizes are a way of compensating for the fixed cost of a Read More...
