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 principals and lean initiatives  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...

This is accomplished by integrating dozens of variables to generate inventory management solutions down to the stock-keeping unit (SKU) level. In addition to deriving operational recommendations, i-Lean lays out the cost components of each solution. The application establishes the foundation for a warehouse management system implementation, and supports long-term inventory management maintenance Read More...

lean principals and lean initiatives  Lean Manufacturing Principles in an A&D Environment Lean manufacturing is a management philosophy, enabled and supported by various techniques, to eliminate non-value adding activity. However, aerospace and defense (A&D) government regulations impose very different business practices from those followed in the commercial sector. Can lean manufacturing principles really work in A&D? The answer: it depends on the architecture of the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Read More...

lean principals and lean initiatives  Can Teach You about Lean Inventory A lean supply chain consists of two major components—lean manufacturing and lean distribution—which focus on satisfying customer demand efficiently, at the lowest cost, with the least amount of waste. But what if your replenishment strategy is your distribution center’s weakest link? To improve customer satisfaction and achieve efficiency and balance, your replenishment strategy must consider all the key variables. Read More...
