Moving Beyond Lean Manufacturing to a Lean Supply Chain
Most lean manufacturing deployments target production operations, but can also be extended to other supply chain processes. To realize the multiplicative
chain Profitably building a lean supply chain network requires that manufacturing operations synchronize with customer demand and produce acceptable quality products as needed. A manufacturing strategy that is based on reduced variability, production to demand, waste elimination, and optimal cycle time will drive over all supply chain success. Manufacturers that cannot control variability will not be able to move toward lean demand driven replenishment strategies cost effectively. Where the Real Value Is

Managing Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009
A supply chain management system (SCM) is a critical success factor for implementing lean manufacturing. The SCM system helps define product structure, costing
environments. In contrast, the lean approaches do not generally apply to products with the opposite characteristics, such as low certainty of demand, erratic demand patterns, low usage rates, long lead time components, and dynamically changing product structures. The traditional SCM approaches tend to work better for products with these opposite characteristics. Vendor-managed inventory may also be considered for low-cost high-usage components such as nuts and bolts. Lean manufacturing approaches have
Lean Manufacturing: Reaping the Rewards of Lean through Response Management
For years, manufacturers have been driven by sales forecasts and the need to maximize production efficiency at every level of operation. But in order to be
to actual customer demand. Lean organizations are capable of producing high-quality products economically, in lower volumes, and bringing them to market faster than mass producers. A lean organization can make twice as much product with twice the quality, at half the cost, with half the labor and space, and with a fraction of the normal work-in-process inventory. Lean management is about operating the most efficient and effective organization possible, with the least cost and zero waste, while meeting

Is SSA GT Betting Infini(um)tely On Acquisitions? Part Three: Complementary Products
At a first glance, one can even notice that the complementary nature of some SSA GT products and Infinium products may indeed provide a ‘kick for a buck
flavors such as discrete lean manufacturing, assemble-to-order (ATO) and make-to-order (MTO) operations, and even process manufacturing. Further, it even borders on a miracle the fact that SSA GT, which has had its own share of trouble, has even shown some success with managing such a seemingly unwieldy set of disparate products, considering that a vendor of CA's stature was not able to do much with almost a dozen products, some being of vintage '78 or '82 tag (which some may refer to the medieval era of
