Overcoming the Barrier of Traditional Accounting in Lean Environments


Manufacturers of all sizes are more efficient, better managed, and more profitable because of lean—yet this improvement has plateaued at many companies. What’s holding up the progress of lean? The real problem is that as lean evolves and spreads beyond the plant floor, its conflict with traditional accounting is escalating—and becoming more dangerous to the financial health of manufacturers.

Measuring the Success of Lean: Selecting the Best Mileposts for the Never-ending Journey


As manufactures adopt lean principles, the process inevitably involves developing metrics for measuring their progress. But measurements are linked throughout the organization, not just on the manufacturing floor but in accounts payable and other back office processes. This white paper emphasizes the need to focus on strategy deployment.

Move Beyond Lean to Build a Competitive Advantage: Strategies for Discrete Manufacturers


For companies that make complex, configurable products, lean manufacturing principles have become an integral part of their day-to-day operations. Over the past 30 years, lean has helped these companies streamline manufacturing and supply chain processes to eliminate waste and deliver other important business benefits.

But there’s now statistical evidence showing that in discrete manufacturing the presumed benefits from lean have not yielded the competitive advantage that manufacturers had hoped for. Read this white paper to find out more.

Sustained Growth and Profitability through Lean Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)


While open innovation is a hot topic, capitalizing on opportunity requires a holistic strategy—not just increased collaboration. Companies must have repeatable, compliant, and responsive business processes. These processes must be supplemented by a global information infrastructure that provides a single source of the truth, along with alignment across departmental silos, and solutions that evolve without coding.

How to Use ERP for Lean Packaging and Printing


While the concept of lean manufacturing is well established in traditional manufacturing industries, its adoption in printing and packaging has been slow. Many companies have yet to fully realize the benefits of a holistic implementation. Find out how and when you should implement enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems for a faster transition to lean processes—and improve efficiency and quality while reducing waste.

Integrated Lean Giving ERP the Flexibility to Push and Pull


Current manufacturing practices have been made cumbersome by the imposition of data recording activities required by manufacturing systems through the release, issuing, and expediting of the infamous work order. An integrated lean system utilizes full containers to signal the completion of product and backflushes the component material within the ERP system. Additionally, the integrated lean system (pull) can work simultaneously and in harmony with your MRP planning (push) to schedule your shop floor bottlenecks so that the bottleneck becomes the heartbeat (pull) for the remainder of the plant. Although originally scheduled, the bottleneck may use the integrated lean backflush routines as well! This white paper defines the integrated lean environment.

10 Ways to Use ERP to Lean the Manufacturing Supply Chain


A lean supply chain is more than just those activities relating directly to supply chain management (SCM). Lean supply chain improvements require a commitment to finding the correct mix of efficiency and responsiveness. But the reward is great for manufacturers that do embark on the path to lean. Using the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) software can be your key to reaping the benefits of lean SCM. Learn how.

Using Inventory Optimization to Reduce Inventory Levels in a Lean Environment


Small and medium businesses (SMB) need to address inventory challenges by using a tightly integrated approach that reflects the dynamics of the extended supply chain. Data must also be available to other application modules within the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. An inventory optimization solution allows companies to effectively fulfill demand and identify how to gain additional profits from their inventories.
