Lean Manufacturing: A Primer
Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical

lean manufacturing principle and lean thinking  increased interest in the lean manufacturing support philosophy. To understand this trend, one need look no further than the enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems of the 1990s, which, unfortunately, are cognitive (i.e., sending well-devised plans of mice and men , which, without feedback from the real-world would often go astray ) rather than reflexive in nature. In addition, there is a host of other well-publicized MRP-related problems, such as complex bills of material (BOMs), inefficient Read More...

lean manufacturing principle and lean thinking  planning such as ERP, lean manufacturing and JIT concepts, emphasize the continuous improvement of processes. For example, it emphasizes processes that lead to reduced inventory throughout the supply chain, shorter lead times, and faster cycle times, all enabling improved response to customer demands. Consequently, many vendors have bolstered their commitment to lean manufacturing practices with functionality designed to promote rapid response to customer orders based on demand pull . This includes kanba Read More...

LEAN OPINION POLL: Are Lean Concepts and ERP Systems Still Antagonists?
It’s been many years since this question of compatibility between lean practices and enterprise resource planning (ERP) was rigorously discussed and brought

lean manufacturing principle and lean thinking  of lean concepts protect a lean manufacturing organization from technological invasions, propagating the principle that “simpler is better” and believing that almost any informational system is a waste (non-value adding). On the flip side of the coin, there are thousands of ERP vendors, users, and manufacturing managers that use traditional methods based on complex data and transactional systems who won’t accept any other alternative way of conducting business. If you’re in the manufacturing Read More...
