Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations
While lean/flow leverages practices to stay ahead of actual demand, traditional approaches better coordinate secondary, back-office systems like accounting and

lean inventory jit  vendors have been professing lean or flow functionality, most of them still support some nuggets of pseudo JIT ways of accommodating mass customization. Just the support for kanbans or VMI to push inventory elsewhere (e.g., suppliers) rather than to reduce it across the supply chain is a far cry from a true support for lean or flow manufacturing. On the other hand, MRP should not be discounted as useless just like that, since it will often have an important purpose that could and should be used together Read More...
Streamlining for Success: The Lean Supply Chain
When flexibility and speed are requisites for success, it’s the lean organization that leads the race. World-class manufacturing organizations know the value of

lean inventory jit  and e-Kanban) To support lean planning, inventory shipments are dynamically optimized to follow the rhythm of customer demand. kanban, or pull signals received by a customer via EDI or the Web, can be brought into lean planning and demand management so that inventory is built as the customer needs product. Processing customer kanban signals is a part of base MFG/PRO and Lean Manufacturing. Kanban, or pull signals, are sent to the supplier via EDI or the Web. Lean planning allows inventory shipments to be Read More...
How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing
Lean manufacturing is a transformational exercise that requires an organization to cast aside long-held beliefs and business processes. The five main steps to

lean inventory jit  to make its organization lean is to define value from the perspective of the customer, whether the end customer or an intermediate customer. This value must be identified and expressed in terms of how the specific product meets the customer''s need, at a specific price and at a specific time. To do that, one has to be able to evaluate performance in terms of customers, products, profitability analyses, and so on, by measuring well thought-out key performance indicators (KPIs), such as customer sales, Read More...
Lean Tools and Practices that Eliminate Manufacturing Waste
A number of lean manufacturing tools and practices have long been used to reduce manufacturing waste. These include the five S''s, visual controls, standardized

lean inventory jit  production. Single-digit Setup Since lean manufacturing requires manufacturers to produce to customer demand only, it requires them to make products in ever smaller batches. This is opposed to the traditional long runs of equipment and the fallacy that it is more efficient to run a big, EOQ-based batch rather to run several shorter ones that include changeovers. Yet, long runs mean large inventories, which in turn tie up large sums of money and keep customers waiting longer for finished goods and Read More...
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 inventory jit  emphasizing planning like ERP, lean manufacturing and JIT concepts emphasize the continuous improvement of processes that lead to things such as reduced inventory throughout the supply chain, shorter lead times, and faster cycle times enabling improved response to customer demands. Many vendors have consequently bolstered their commitment to lean manufacturing practices with functionality designed to promote rapid response to customer orders based on demand pull . This includes kanban, mixed-mode Read More...
