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...
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

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 (which may be either hours or days before the parts are needed, depending on the application). For advanced flow-oriented planning and execution environments, support for 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...
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...

Lean plants (those following Lean, Lean and Six Sigma, or TPS) are more likely to have adopted these inventorymanagement practices (47%, 57% and 41%, respectively), but many plants aligned with other methodologies or even no methodology are also applying inventory-management techniques. Revenue expectations Manufacturers were optimistic that revenues for 2006 would be higher than 2005 (75% expected an increase) Read More...
Managing Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009
A supply chain management system (SCM) is a critical success factor for implementing lean manufacturing. The SCM system helps define product structure, costing

kanban lean manufacturing jit  new constructs related to kanban orders replace the traditional SCM approaches that involve purchase orders, production orders and picking lists. They can also work in parallel with the traditional approaches, typically because lean manufacturing has only been implemented for selected product lines, for selected portions of a product structure, or for selected trading partners in the supply chain. A manufacturing kanban order supports coordination of production activities, but it does not support cost Read More...

kanban lean manufacturing jit  Manufacturing In the manufacturing arena, lean is a top topic. And though companies expect a big payoff from the lean approach to manufacturing—including increases in production capacity and product quality, reduced production time and inventories, etc.—there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ philosophy of applying lean principles to every manufacturing organization.
