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 production and lean thinking  also be important in lean manufacturing, as it provides the basis for long-term purchase agreements with suppliers and also determines long-term capacity requirements. Forecasting also helps with generating a leveled master production schedule (MPS) based on the flow of materials through the supply chain or factory and costs. This is particularly useful where there is variable demand or new product introductions (NPI), since there may always be one major capacity constraint or minor ones may pop up here Read More...

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 production and lean thinking  a multipart note entitled Lean Manufacturing: A Primer. For these reasons, a TOC production planning solution might be appropriate for manufacturers with make-to-order (MTO) environments, where demand is volatile and where different product lines share the same resources, resulting in bottlenecks. It could also be used for mixed mode manufacturing. In fact, by offering daily production planning for customer orders received, TOC enables business performance improvements in such environments in terms of Read More...
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 production and lean thinking  commonly referred to as lean manufacturing today is an extension of the proverbial Toyota Production System ( TPS ), which was originated by Taiichi Ohno and first saw use in the 1950s. The conditions that led to its development stemmed from the aftermath of World War II, when Japanese automotive manufacturers faced serious competition from American counterparts. At this time, Japanese manufacturers not only were rebuilding their war torn factories, but also were facing a serious shortage of raw Read More...

lean production and lean thinking  to Lean with Oracle Flow Manufacturing Lean execution strategies within enterprises and across supply chains can dramatically reduce cycle times, improve quality, reduce waste, and improve bottom lines. In other words, lean is more than an advantage: it is a competitive necessity. Oracle’s Flow Manufacturing module capabilities in lean execution can enable the transition from a discrete, push-based manufacturing environment to a flow, pull-based one. Read More...

The functional bloat that software suppliers added to their systems to win functionality contests and to serve multiple markets has created complexity and inefficiency in the daily life of a user. Most people rank their personal satisfaction working with application software programs near the bottom when compared to other tasks they perform in their job. Why? Because the user experience was a design afterthought. Features were added wherever Read More...
