However, another way to encompass the lean philosophy is Womack and Jones' 1996 definitions of the five main steps to achieving lean transition for enterprises. These steps are now widely accepted as a sort of lean manufacturing life cycle. The following are the five main elements of enabling a lean approach. Define value Map Read More

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 Con Read More
Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations

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

lean source  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
Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints

lean source  on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints Lean Manufacturing and the Theory of Constraints Lean manufacturing and the theory of constraints (TOC) may well go hand in hand. Lean manufacturing makes value flow through the factory, for instance, by trying to separate value streams so that they use dedicated resources sized to the same capacity (even if kanbans do not optimize the constraints). TOC takes this idea further by recognizing critical bottlenecks, which are the most overloaded Read More
