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 "quantity of one" (i.e., through the so-called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times in order to quickly fill customer orders.

lean manufacturing concepts jit  Tutorial Flow Manufacturing The lean manufacturing support philosophy has recently received increased interest, potentially allowing it to break like a huge wave across industry. The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems of the 1990s have been burdened with the liability of carrying on some well-publicized Material Requirements Planning (MRP) problems like complex bills of material (BOMs), inefficient workflows and unnecessary transactions, activities, and data collections. While several years ago Read More

Meeting Process Manufacturing Challenges Through More Potent Functionality


The process manufacturing market remains one of the most competitive and dynamic segments of manufacturing. Process manufacturers must evolve to meet the challenges of changing market demands, the increasing commoditization of products, and the volatility of pricing in energy and raw materials.

A powerful enterprise resource planning (ERP) system with detailed functionality should help process manufacturers manage active ingredients throughout their operations by enabling them to buy raw materials and cost goods more precisely; scale formulas up or down, automatically; track lot inheritance; and define product sequencing, which is evaluated based on multiple characteristics, to reduce downtime and changeover costs in the production schedule.

Process Manufacturing (ERP)


The simplified definition of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a set of applications that automate finance and human resources departments and help manufacturers handle jobs such as order processing and production scheduling. ERP began as a term used to describe a sophisticated and integrated software system used for manufacturing. In its simplest sense, ERP systems create interactive environments designed to help companies manage and analyze the business processes associated with manufacturing goods, such as inventory control, order taking, accounting, and much more. Although this basic definition still holds true for ERP systems, today its definition is expanding. Today's leading ERP systems group all traditional company management functions (finance, sales, manufacturing, human resources) and include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, many solutions that were formerly considered peripheral (product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), reporting, etc.). While during the last few years the functional perimeter of ERP systems began an expansion into its adjacent markets, such as supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence/data warehousing, and e-Business, the focus of this knowledge base is mainly on the traditional ERP realms of finance, materials planning, and human resources. The old adage is "Such a beginning, such an end", and, consequently, many ERP systems' failures could be traced back to a bad software selection. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers' IT technology with their business strategy, and subsequent software selection. This is the perfect time to create the business case and energize the entire organization towards the vision sharing and a buy in, both being the Key Success Factors (KSFs). Yet, these steps are very often neglected despite the amount of expert literature and articles that emphasize their importance.
