Freeing Six Sigma from the “Data Shuffle”
Paying skilled professionals to massage, scrub, and manipulate data is a huge waste of valuable resources. And while having clean data is essential to driving Six Sigma projects, the act of getting that data adds absolutely no business value. That’s why organizations that focus first on making accurate, actionable data available in real time have more effective Six Sigma programs.

Implementing 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.

Going Lean Step By Step with IFS Applications
In the relentless pursuit of profitability and competitiveness, more and more companies are turning to lean manufacturing to reduce or eliminate waste in their production processes. Once confined to the automotive industry, lean principles are becoming standard operating procedure in many industries today. The reason is simple: When implemented with a good performance management system, lean principles have a proven track record of operational and strategic success, which ultimately translates into increased value to the end customer. This paper illustrates how IFS Applications supports lean principles, particularly in the many manufacturing environments that require both rate-based (takt-driven) and order-based shop-floor execution.
