lean definition  Lean Initiatives across the Organization Companies everywhere have realized the need for greater efficiency and improved quality within the enterprise to stay productive and competitive in today's business environment. In order to obtain these efficiencies, corporations have turned to the successful model used by manufacturers for years known as lean, just-in-time (JIT), or kaizen. The fundamental goal of lean manufacturing includes the reduction of waste increase in productivity and improved Read More

lean definition  of ERP Support for Lean Certain lean initiatives can be hugely strengthened with a synergistic enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation—and vice versa. In other cases, the two efforts should be viewed as separate initiatives. But it doesn’t depend on “what you want”: specific lean initiatives will fail if specific ERP aspects are neglected. However, other lean initiatives and ERP functionality have little in common. Read More

lean definition  2009 Webcast Session 3: Lean for Materials Managers In the forthcoming 2009 APICS International Conference and Expo, many educational tracks will be covered by industry leaders, and lean is one of them. Since we are in a global economic crisis where every manufacturer, supplier, and producer is trying to reduce cost and minimize waste while increasing production or throughput, I am particularly interested in the “lean” educational track to hear what the experts are saying. Recently, I had the Read More

lean definition  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 Read More
Lean Operational Improvements That Last From Islands of Improvement to Enterprise-wide Excellence

lean definition  discrete manufacturers have adopted lean manufacturing approaches, but haven’t pursued lean improvement methods. Even those that have report only small, local benefits. A holistic approach is needed to see the long-term benefits of lean. To find out if your company is ready to make lean improvements, you need to ask key questions. Discover what they are, and how to start down the path to leaner manufacturing. Read More

lean definition  by the Numbers Getting lean is not a simple task; it requires an aggressive, iterative approach to examine complex tradeoffs. And given the number of variables that characterize a distribution center (DC) and its constituent stock keeping units (SKUs), performing this type of analysis without using the right tools can be daunting—if not impossible. Find out how a tool-based approach can make getting lean easier. Read More
