lean construction  most companies are small, lean, and nimble, relying on extensive supplier networks. Companies have multiple clients and contracts across a globally diverse workforce available on a supply-and-demand (as needed) basis. These trends are giving rise to a massive and rapidly growing “contingent” workforce that will make up to 40 percent of the entire workforce by 2020 (currently at 30 percent, according to CNNMoney ). BusinessWeek reported that 26 percent of employees in 2005 had nonstandard jobs, i.e., Read More

lean construction  Can Teach You about Lean Inventory A lean supply chain consists of two major components—lean manufacturing and lean distribution—which focus on satisfying customer demand efficiently, at the lowest cost, with the least amount of waste. But what if your replenishment strategy is your distribution center’s weakest link? To improve customer satisfaction and achieve efficiency and balance, your replenishment strategy must consider all the key variables. Read More
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

lean construction  increased interest in the lean manufacturing support philosophy. To understand this trend, one need look no further than the enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems of the 1990s, which, unfortunately, are cognitive (i.e., sending well-devised plans of mice and men , which, without feedback from the real-world would often go astray ) rather than reflexive in nature. In addition, there is a host of other well-publicized MRP-related problems, such as complex bills of material (BOMs), inefficient Read More

lean construction  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. Find out how you need to view lean to get the most out of it for your particular organization. Read More

However, other lean initiatives and ERP functionality have little in common. Read More
