Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial
Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the

lean flow  detail on JIT and lean manufacturing and on their impact on ERP, see Trends Affecting Manufacturers and ERP . However, flow manufacturing leverages some additional techniques helping manufacturers create any product on any given day and quantity, including the quantity of one (i.e., through the so-called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times to fill customer orders quickly. In particular, flow manufacturing leverages mathematical tools to automate Read More...

lean flow  Up to Lean Manufacturing-Make Value Flow Through Your Bottleneck Manufacturers everywhere are turning to “lean manufacturing” to help them combat competition from low-cost countries and meet the increasing demands from customers for shorter lead times, more product variety and smaller orders. Lean manufacturing is a philosophy that focuses on customer value-adding activities, elimination of waste and continuous improvement in order to meet pull-driven customer demand. Read More...
Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations

Illustrating Differences To illustrate the differences between these methods, let us compare the AMPM Convenience stores with Wendy's and McDonalds burger chains modes of operation. For one, AMPM, whose slogan is Always there to serve your needs, is an MRP-based planning operation, whereby hamburgers are made in daily batches, which often results with scrap leftovers and lost sales. McDonalds, with the Serving 46 million customers each day motto, Read More...
Enterprise Resource Planning Vendors Address Lean Manufacturing
Intentia, Fujitsu Glovia, QAD, and SSA Global's solutions supporting lean manufacturing are examined. Which areas the extended enterprise resource planning (ERP

lean flow  tools aim to enable lean enterprises to minimize inventory carrying costs and speed the flow of information across their extended supply chain. Supply Visualization QAD MFG/PRO Lean Manufacturing functions operate in conjunction with QAD Supply Visualization ( SV ), a software module with kanban functionality, which provides secure, real time access to inventory data for suppliers in order to better synchronize inventory with demand. SV facilitates VMI, a method through which the supplier is responsible Read More...

lean flow  to Lean with Oracle Flow Manufacturing Lean execution strategies within enterprises and across supply chains can dramatically reduce cycle times, improve quality, reduce waste, and improve bottom lines. In other words, lean is more than an advantage: it is a competitive necessity. Oracle’s Flow Manufacturing module capabilities in lean execution can enable the transition from a discrete, push-based manufacturing environment to a flow, pull-based one. Read More...

The advantages of lean manufacturing concepts with demand driven techniques, extended through the supply chain, deliver: Real time supply chain communication and coordination Real time supply chain scheduling Inventory reduction through demand-based replenishment Reduction of non-value added work internally and externally Improved demand signal management across the supply chain network Focus on material flow across the entire supply chain Profitably building a lean supply chain network 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 flow  traditional approaches, typically because lean manufacturing has only been implemented for selected product lines, for selected portions of a product structure, or for selected trading partners in the supply chain. A manufacturing kanban order supports coordination of production activities, but it does not support cost accumulation for actual costing purposes. When order-based costing is required, each receipt of a manufacturing kanban can automatically generate an associated production order. The Read More...

lean flow  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...
