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

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

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

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
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

Many companies have yet to fully realize the benefits of a holistic implementation. Find out how and when you should implement enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems for a faster transition to lean processes—and improve efficiency and quality while reducing waste. Read More

lean techniques jit  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

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

lean techniques jit  by the Numbers Getting lean is not a simple task; it requires an aggressive, iterative approach to examine complex tradeoffs. And given the number of variables that characterize a distribution center (DC) and its constituent stock keeping units (SKUs), performing this type of analysis without using the right tools can be daunting—if not impossible. Find out how a tool-based approach can make getting lean easier. Read More

However, due to their repeatability, speed, accuracy, and flexibility, the role of robots in lean implementations is constantly increasing. Automation equipment, which includes robots, is rapidly becoming a core component to lean manufacturing and the reduction of manufacturing costs.

lean techniques jit  OPINION POLL: Are Lean Concepts and ERP Systems Still Antagonists? It’s been many years since this question of compatibility between lean practices and enterprise resource planning (ERP) was rigorously discussed and brought many controversial and opposite opinions to the table. Can these two work well together, or do they have no place in each other’s space? It seems like even after all this time—and discussion—the jury is still out the final verdict. The answer is not a simple “yes” or Read More
