PLM (Vendors) and Lean Product Development - Part I: An Overview
“Basically, lean is [focused on] creating more value with less work.” – Wikipedia, Lean ManufacturingNo matter who can be credited with making this

lean developing and lean initiatives  I’d like to define lean product development (LPD) as this: LPD is focused on developing more products better and with use of fewer resources. To be more specific, LPD contains the following three major elements, in my view: 1. Productivity in product development . Productivity is composed of two aspects: 1) individual productivity designers, engineers, and other product development parties need to reduce waste (e.g., time and effort) in their individual tasks; and 2) collaboration productivity product Read More...

Lean is an alternative business management philosophy that requires a clear understanding of the multiple coordinated efforts of a company’s stakeholders—owners, managers, and employees. Lean is a journey, rather a single time-limited project. Adoption of the lean approach is really not similar to implementing a business change or software project, for example. This is because with the lean approach, processes are continuously improved, and thus lean is not Read More...
Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints
The theory of constraints (TOC) is similar to, yet different from, the lean philosophy. TOC focuses on optimizing production through critical bottlenecks in

The major thing that has to change is the company culture—it has to commit to making decisions based on throughput information rather than on cost information. To do that, one has to put new measures in place; the software can only help to reinforce these new procedures, disciplines, and measurements. Moreover, subordinating non-bottleneck feeder plants to the constraint plant Read More...
