Front-office Lean-Taking Lean Manufacturing Beyond the Shop Floor
Lean manufacturing practices are employed to some degree on almost every manufacturing floor, but many companies aren't realizing the real benefits of lean by

In some office environments, as on the shop floor, it might make sense to physically move objects and people around in order to streamline information handling. If there is a natural flow of information throughout an organization, the location of people's desks or offices may reflect that linear flow,

ERP for Services (Non-manufacturing)

Typically, ERP systems designed for services industries offer modules that provide back-office support, customer relationship management, time management, expense management, resource management, and project management capabilities. Depending on the vertical market, additional industry-specific functionality may be included to address unique business requirements. Consequently, project-centric systems for accounting, architecture, construction, engineering, and professional services industries will support project management functionality; whereas health care, field service, distribution, and government systems will support functionality unique to those vertical markets.

Begin at the End: A Good Lean Strategy Starts with Defining Your Ultimate Goal


You know the statistics—lean can shorten your lead times, reduce inventories, cut operating costs, free up resources, and more. But countless surveys have confirmed that most lean initiatives fail to deliver expected and needed results. Why? Are successes confined to a restricted list of industry sectors? Are only "lean experts" capable of leading an organization through a successful implementation?

Quote-to-order: One Big, Lean Machine Adds High Tech to Its Mix


BigMachines differentiates itself in the quote-to-order (Q2O) sphere due to its solutions’ lean end-to-end, inquiry-to-order focus. Although there are other vendors offering Q2O as a service, BigMachines product is arguably more flexible, as high tech manufacturers may be noting.

The lean front-end (LFE) moniker is meant to indicate that BigMachines is leaner than its old-school competitors, particularly those with much broader enterprise suites, because Its solution is solely focused on managing the full end-to-end inquiry-to-order process (quoting, configuration, and proposals) executed by customers' sales teams and channels, whereas most competitors stop short of truly empowering sales with one generalist solution that tries, suboptimally, to manage all Read More

Lean Manufacturing: Reaping the Rewards of Lean through Response Management


For years, manufacturers have been driven by sales forecasts and the need to maximize production efficiency at every level of operation. But in order to be successful, manufacturers must look toward adopting a lean mentality. While lean techniques are more easily applied to some manufacturing styles than others, new software tools are now able to deliver the benefits of lean to both high-mix and low-volume operations.

How Can Fashion Companies Benefit from Lean Supply Chains?


Fashion companies need to respond quickly and strategically to major changes occurring in today’s global supply chains. Implementing a lean supply chain management strategy can enable cost savings and more efficient operations by realigning process according to a demand-driven model. Lean supply chain management uses Web-based technologies to create and maintain dynamic supplier networks. Such networks are able to deliver the highest customer value at the lowest cost. It also lays the groundwork for the next level of hands-free, wireless radio frequency identification-enabled processes. Intentia, in cooperation with industry experts, have written a series of thought leadership white papers on the concept of implementing lean supply chain in the fashion industry. The first of this series, “Lean Is Fashionable”, explores the impact of lean practices in the fashion and apparel industry during a period of momentous change.

Social Engineering Can Thwart the Best Laid Security Plans


There are a lot of different social engineering techniques, but they all have the same basic idea. The trick behind social engineering is to get the user to give up valuable information without them suspecting anything.

lean engineering  Engineering Can Thwart the Best Laid Security Plans Introduction    It's been my experience that a lot of IT professionals don't like to talk about social engineering. Perhaps they don't view it as a credible threat, or maybe they have a hard time accepting the idea that all of their hard work and countless hours spent securing the network could be so easily undone by the act of an end user answering an innocent question. What ever the reason, social engineering is a very real threat that needs Read More
