Supply Chain Collaboration: The Key to Success in a Global Economy
Outsourcing and global competition are forcing companies to transform their supply chains from linear processes into adaptive networks. Communities of customer

lean presentation roa  replenishment concept related to lean or just-in-time (JIT) production that historically uses cards to signal the need for replenishment of an item. Leveraging collaborative technologies, the kanban process allows customers to electronically issue the kanban replenishment signals to suppliers in real time. The supplier can quickly and accurately determine requirements and be proactively alerted to exception situations such as a new or empty storage location. Dynamic Replenishment Dynamic replenishment is Read More

lean presentation roa  to Use ERP to Lean the Manufacturing Supply Chain A lean supply chain is more than just those activities relating directly to supply chain management (SCM). Lean supply chain improvements require a commitment to finding the correct mix of efficiency and responsiveness. But the reward is great for manufacturers that do embark on the path to lean. Using the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) software can be your key to reaping the benefits of lean SCM. Learn how. Read More
Integrating Lean Practices and ERP

lean presentation roa  Lean Practices and ERP Many organizations are undertaking some form of lean initiative, but if one were to ask one hundred different people, one would probably different explanations from each person. With a variety of methods, techniques, and terms bandied about, many are forced to use the same definition that the late Justice Potter Stewart used for pornography: “I know it when I see it.” Shop floor practices that move inventory to the point of consumption, like kanban, are also Read More
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

Namely, most companies will still use MRP to ascertain longer-term dependent demand (i.e., based on forecasts), but replenishment will be based on independent demand (i.e., actual customer orders), with closely managed inventory buffers. Customer demand cannot be predicted months ahead, since nothing is that certain. Thus, many ERP systems are employing heuristics, algorithms, Read More

lean presentation roa  Ways Robots Enhance Lean Manufacturing Environments Traditionally, robots have not played a prominent role in the implementation of lean strategies. However, due to their repeatability, speed, accuracy, and flexibility, the role of robots in lean implementations is constantly increasing. Automation equipment, which includes robots, is rapidly becoming a core component to lean manufacturing and the reduction of manufacturing costs.

Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints
The theory of constraints (TOC) is similar to, yet different from, the lean philosophy. TOC focuses on optimizing production through critical bottlenecks in

lean presentation roa  on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints Lean Manufacturing and the Theory of Constraints Lean manufacturing and the theory of constraints (TOC) may well go hand in hand. Lean manufacturing makes value flow through the factory, for instance, by trying to separate value streams so that they use dedicated resources sized to the same capacity (even if kanbans do not optimize the constraints). TOC takes this idea further by recognizing critical bottlenecks, which are the most overloaded Read More
Manual versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing

lean presentation roa  versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing Manual versus Information Technology It is easy enough to grasp the potential benefits of lean manufacturing (see Lean Manufacturing: A Primer , Lean Tools and Practices that Eliminate Manufacturing Waste , and How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing ), but selecting the most appropriate lean techniques or tools and the accompanying packaged enterprise software for an individual enterprise has never been that simple. In fact, it is a major exercise for Read More

lean presentation roa  to Achieve Lean Manufacturing How Should One Go About Achieving Lean? Part One of this series provided one definition of lean manufacturing (see Lean Manufacturing: A Primer ). However, another way to encompass the lean philosophy is Womack and Jones'' 1996 definitions of the five main steps to achieving lean transition for enterprises. These steps are now widely accepted as a sort of lean manufacturing life cycle. The following are the five main elements of enabling a lean approach. Define value Map Read More

lean presentation roa  of ERP Support for Lean Certain lean initiatives can be hugely strengthened with a synergistic enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation—and vice versa. In other cases, the two efforts should be viewed as separate initiatives. But it doesn’t depend on “what you want”: specific lean initiatives will fail if specific ERP aspects are neglected. However, other lean initiatives and ERP functionality have little in common. Read More
