Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial
Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the

lean techniques jit  detail on JIT and lean manufacturing and on their impact on ERP, see Trends Affecting Manufacturers and ERP . However, flow manufacturing leverages some additional techniques helping manufacturers create any product on any given day and quantity, including the quantity of one (i.e., through the so-called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times to fill customer orders quickly. In particular, flow manufacturing leverages mathematical tools to automate Read More...
Enterprise Resource Planning Vendors Address Lean Manufacturing
Intentia, Fujitsu Glovia, QAD, and SSA Global''s solutions supporting lean manufacturing are examined. Which areas the extended enterprise resource planning (ERP

Inventory Control QAD lean manufacturing capabilities contribute to pull-based replenishment with new tools for greater control over inventory, including multiple methods for calculating and setting inventory supermarket quantities based on user-defined parameters and scenarios. The amount of inventory is tightly managed with automated techniques for continuous improvement, and is integrated with the above demand leveling system components. All replenishment methods are supported, including 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

lean techniques jit  typically handle planning, while lean would deal with the execution). Manufacturers must also be fully aware of whether their systems use actual demand, sales forecasts, or a combination of the two in order to populate their MPS. Also, manufacturers need to do some preliminary work before even thinking about deploying flow manufacturing software, such as adapting their plants to a flow production model. In other words, they will have to operate in work cells that build families of products (rather than Read More...
Technology Enablers for the Lean Supply Chain
Transforming an enterprise to a lean supply chain requires both enabling technology and discipline. By following some specific guidelines to extend lean

lean techniques jit  the transition to a lean environment. With this said, coexistence will bring both complexities and opportunities to light, such as Hybrid scheduling techniques such as manufacturing resource planning (MRP), just in time (JIT) , synchronous, and flow, can be deployed in complementary fashion, but dynamics like level loading, kanban sizing, and buffer sizing, must co-exist with planning, procurement, and scheduling systems Supply chain strengths and weaknesses can be highlighted with lean concept adoption.

Lean Manufacturing: A Primer
Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical

lean techniques jit  increased interest in the lean manufacturing support philosophy. To understand this trend, one need look no further than the enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems of the 1990s, which, unfortunately, are cognitive (i.e., sending well-devised plans of mice and men , which, without feedback from the real-world would often go astray ) rather than reflexive in nature. In addition, there is a host of other well-publicized MRP-related problems, such as complex bills of material (BOMs), inefficient Read More...

lean techniques jit  Guide to Implementing Lean in Distribution This whitepaper is a guide for distributors on implementing and integrating lean practices into their businesses. Lean is not just a tool, but also is a culture, philosophy, process, and methodology. A main goal in becoming more lean, to become more efficient and profitable at every iteration, can be brought about in ways such as analyzing end-to-end processes and determining how to deliver more with less and becoming more organized. Improved results Read More...
