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

lean quality  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 Read More...
ERP for Municipalities
In this model, we assume the municipality controls water, sewers and roads. We assume also that it collects municipal or county taxes and manages many of its own assets such as vehicles and wate...

To this end, a quality enterprise application includes a business modeler that allows users to map processes and route information to the right people at the right time. An application's business modeler function provides a company a view of its organization in terms of business processes, giving insights to reengineer the business for maximum efficiency, agility, and customer satisfaction in order to earn customer loyalty. Once an application is Read More...

Figure 6: Lean Successes Driving Operational Performance with Metrics Much of the success attributed to Lean is based on unrelenting focus on process standardization and continually looking for ways to improve. This premise is based on the ability to measure, set standards, and work toward improved performance. In the Read More...

lean quality  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...

This whitepaper argues that because developers using the agile methodology are usually the first to test their own code, agile development results in higher quality software than what traditional software teams usually deliver.

lean quality  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...

Since we are in a global economic crisis where every manufacturer, supplier, and producer is trying to reduce cost and minimize waste while increasing production or throughput, I am particularly interested in the “lean” educational track to hear what the experts are saying. Recently, I had the Read More...

The systems these businesses use, however, have changed relatively little in comparison. The ERP systems manufacturing companies rely on to run their business are greatly at odds with the strategy and processes lean manufacturers use to maintain their competitive advantage. Read More...
Extending Quality's Reach to Manage Quality in the Supply Chain

lean quality  Quality's Reach to Manage Quality in the Supply Chain Introduction The quality department lies at the heart of a manufacturing concern. The quality department is responsible for ensuring that a company's products consistently meet its quality expectations. The speed and accuracy with which the quality department can perform its functions is one determinant of how quickly products can be delivered. Traditionally, quality departments have focused their efforts within the four walls of the plant, 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...
