Sorting Through the ERP, Lean MFG, APS, and MES Clutter - Part 2
Part 1 of this blog series started with the fact that the ability to sense demand and become a demand-driven (responsive) business is more than just the catch

lean engineering and lean initiatives  the so-called “runners” that lean manufacturing is well suited for comprise only about 6 percent of products and 50 percent of revenues . Ironically, these more customized products will likely have higher  profit margins  than the runners and they may contribute to more than half of the company’s revenue and profit. If a company has dedicated resources to its runners, how does it cope with (likely profitable) surges in demand for repeaters and strangers? Dedicated cell systems can be inefficient Read More
Advanced Front Office Lean with Business Modeler Software
When part of an enterprise software environment, business modeler software can reduce training costs, prevent errors, and minimize non-value added work. And if

In this article, we'll focus on one often-overlooked tool for facilitating front-office lean—business modeler software that is tightly integrated with an enterprise application. Business modeler software can help to identify non-value-added steps in a front office process, but by using it to automate processes it can—in and of itself—eliminate non-value added Read More
Managing Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009
A supply chain management system (SCM) is a critical success factor for implementing lean manufacturing. The SCM system helps define product structure, costing

lean engineering and lean initiatives  for effective implementation of lean manufacturing. The SCM system supports development and consensus for the demand plan, integrates engineering and sourcing information, manages changes associated with continuous improvement, and ensures supply-demand synchronization with demand pull techniques. The SCM system also defines product structure and costing information, provides the basis for financial information and reports, and provides a single source of the truth for decision making. Many have argued Read More
PLM (Vendors) and Lean Product Development-Part 3: Siemens PLM Software
After talking about Dassault Systèmes in Part 2 of this blog series, I’d like to move to another prominent player in the product lifecycle management (PLM
