Demand-driven Manufacturing and Warehousing: Challenges and User Recommendations
Among its promising initiatives, IBS offers flexible rescheduling tools that integrate with existing manufacturing resource planning systems. Its warehousing

lean definition tco  vendors have been professing lean or demand-driven functionality, most of them still support some nuggets of pseudo just-in-time (JIT) ways of accommodating mass customization. Supporting kanbans or vendor managed inventory (VMI) to push inventory elsewhere (e.g., suppliers) rather than to reduce stock across the entire supply chain is a far cry from a truly supported lean or demand-driven manufacturing. On the other hand, MRP should not be discounted as useless just like that, since it will often have Read More...

The solution looks deceptively simple, but many people actually take a while to get it (learn and understand) because it appears to be counterintuitive at first. Basically, the target customer for this solution is someone who has pulled out half his or her hair trying to program the shop with a complex finite scheduler, only to find that the system Read More...

Reliability Driven Maintenance--Closing the CMMS
The metric of plant maintenance should now be in the ability of the plant to meet the strategic goals of the company beyond customarily expected cost savings

lean definition tco  applying the principles of lean manufacturing tells us that any unnecessary maintenance is a waste. That is to say, just like inventory one does not need at a certain time is considered a waste, maintenance tasks done before then they are truly required also constitute a waste. When preventive maintenance tells us it is the time to perform a maintenance routine, the $64,000 question is, could we have waited or eliminated this routine without a negative impact on the asset''s ability to meet the business Read More...
