TEC Lean and Green Manufacturing Buyer’s Guide
While the need for sustainable development is affecting how organizations do business, the idea of environmental and corporate responsibility as value drivers

lean simulation tco  Scheduling System keeps your lean manufacturing on track, ensuring that your continuous improvement lasts for many years, instead of just a few months. The main general benefits of installing Asprova were: Visualization Reducing the amount of inventory (for both the raw materials and finished products) by planning the delivery of raw materials to arrive just as they are going to be used, and scheduling operations so that the finished products are ready just when they need to be shipped Reducing the work i Read More
Successful Manufacturing in a Competitive Market
Order-driven manufacturers@those who engineer-to-order (ETO), assemble-to-order (ATO), and make-to-order (MTO)@face numerous challenges. To stay competitive

lean simulation tco  the process of, implementing Lean or Six Sigma as a way to re-engineer their processes - with the goal being overall improved operations. These initiatives put a customer-oriented focus on where to improve operations and reduce costs. Technology - the use of technology is increasingly important in any strategy to improve processes and reduce costs. Order-driven manufacturers would significantly benefit from the use of technology due to the complex nature of their businesses. The one caveat to technology i Read More
New Approaches to Software Pricing
Hearing the complaints of dissatisfied customers, some vendors are developing customer-centric contracts. HarrisData has even gone so far as to draft a Bill of

lean simulation tco  designed to operate a lean manufacturing environment through just-in-time (JIT) production techniques. All this contributes to virtual real time connections that move information between the customer order and the shop floor to improve customer service. At the same time, it allows management to realize more and better control over the manufacturing process. For more related information, see Manufacturer''s Nirvana—Real-Time Actionable Information . To that end, the shop floor scheduling functionality ide Read More
Dassault Systèmes-Expanding Product Development and the 3D Experience
The Dassault Systèmes vision is to enable everyone—from product designers, engineers, and suppliers to end users and their respective communities—to create

lean simulation tco  optimizing build-to-order (BTO) and lean production manufacturing systems Plant and resources engineering —tools to virtually define and optimize manufacturing assets concurrently with manufacturing planning Program control engineering —to virtually program, validate, and simulate manufacturing systems for the virtual commissioning of production facilities Control and production execution —offers a virtual production system to enable companies to track real-time production activities, perform Read More
A Semi-open Source Vendor Discusses Market Trends
A response to trends in the open source software market comes this time from relative newcomer provider xTuple. This vendor’s footprint isn’t entirely in the

lean simulation tco  of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena ). The developed code was footnoted with references to the fathers of TOC, Goldratt and Schragenheim. The solution looks deceptively simple, but many people actually take a while to get it (learn and understand) because it appears to be counterintuitive at first. Basically, the target customer for this solution is someone who has pulled out half his or her hair trying to program the shop with a complex finite scheduler, only to find that the system re Read More
Why Soft-skills Simulation Makes a Hard Case for Sales Training

lean simulation tco  Soft-skills Simulation Makes a Hard Case for Sales Training Many companies find that traditional sales training methods have fallen short. The competitive levels of today''s business environment demand new educational methods that can deliver advantage quickly and cost effectively. But how to cut through the clutter? Book learning, seminars, and lectures alone are too static! E-learning and web-based training are often irrelevant—or just plain boring. What to do? Read More
Lean Asset Management--Is Preventive Maintenance Anti-Lean?
How can we determine the right maintenance strategy for a specific asset? To meet the objectives of lean, we need to evaluate the cost of failure in terms of

lean simulation tco  Preventive Maintenance Anti-Lean? Introduction Lean manufacturing has been widely accepted as an approach to business improvement. The business benefits of lean have been extensively documented. Asset management should play a role in lean. Lean manufacturing''s focus is eliminating waste, for example: Inventory—Inventory must always be minimized. Defect correction—Resources spent on defect correction are waste. Unnecessary processing—All unnecessary activities, particularly non-value-adding ones, Read More
10 Ways to Use ERP to Lean the Manufacturing Supply Chain
A lean supply chain is more than just those activities relating directly to supply chain management (SCM). Lean supply chain improvements require a commitment

lean simulation tco  to Use ERP to Lean the Manufacturing Supply Chain A lean supply chain is more than just those activities relating directly to supply chain management (SCM). Lean supply chain improvements require a commitment to finding the correct mix of efficiency and responsiveness. But the reward is great for manufacturers that do embark on the path to lean. Using the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) software can be your key to reaping the benefits of lean SCM. Learn how. Read More

lean simulation tco  In the manufacturing arena, lean is a top topic. And though companies expect a big payoff from the lean approach to manufacturing—including increases in production capacity and product quality, reduced production time and inventories, etc.—there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ philosophy of applying lean principles to every manufacturing organization. Find out how you need to view lean to get the most out of it for your particular organization. BEGINLYX Read More
The When, Why, and How 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

lean simulation tco  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

lean simulation tco  (Vendors) and Lean Product Development - Part I: An Overview “Basically, lean is [focused on] creating more value with less work.” – Wikipedia, Lean Manufacturing No matter who can be credited with making this statement, I have to thank him or her. This statement allows people to apply lean principles in broader circumstances than manufacturing. Following this idea, I’d like to define lean product development (LPD) as this: LPD is focused on developing more products better and with use of fewer Read More
Are You on the Right Track to Lean - or Getting Left behind?
Find out in the aberdeen white paper the impact of lean on consumer product manufacturers.

lean simulation tco  the Right Track to Lean - or Getting Left behind? While consumer goods manufacturers have been slow to go lean, the industry is finally catching up: 52 percent of consumer goods companies are committed to reducing manufacturing and supply chain costs and 48 percent are setting goals to implement continuous improvement programs . So where does your company stand when it comes to lean? Are you on the right track—or are you getting left behind? Find out in the Aberdeen white paper The Impact of Lean on Read More
Lean Maintenance-Does It Impact Reliability? Lessons Learned and Best Practices
The main cause of lean maintenance failure is that companies fail to focus on asset reliability. The reliability approach to capacity, which includes risk

lean simulation tco  Best Practices What is Lean Maintenance? Lean manufacturing, lean maintenance, and the whole lean concept have had many successes, but many companies have not achieved the results they expected. There are many reasons why lean maintenance fails, but the number one cause of failure is the lack of focus on reliability. To understand this, we must start by defining lean maintenance. Lean maintenance is a proactive maintenance operation employing planned and scheduled maintenance activities through total Read More
