Thinking Radically: Interview with Gary Cokins » The TEC Blog
systems, as well as lean management and the Six Sigma initiatives. It is quite a stew, but they all blend together. BPM puts BI into context. BI reporting consumes stored data that first must be cleansed and integrated from disparate source systems and then transformed into information. Analytics produces new information. BPM then leverages and deploys the information. BPM requires BI as a foundation. When analytics are added to BI and BPM, organizations gain insights for better and more timely decision

Easy ERP: A Challenge to Conventional Thinking
There is a new paradigm when it comes to evaluating ERP systems. With little difference between industry players' solutions, the key is the longevity of the system, its usability, and total cost of ownership.

LEAN THINKING: the user experience. Think lean where less really is more.

Adaptive Manufacturing: Enabling the Lean Six Sigma Enterprise
Enabling lean manufacturing and six sigma principles to improve operations requires a nontraditional approach. The old idea that lean manufacturing and six sigma principles don’t require IT isn’t valid anymore. Enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management (SCM) applications are critical for enabling holistic, lean manufacturing operations, and work hand-in-hand to better enable consumption—not forecasts—to drive replenishment.

Enhancing Lean Practices: Lean Adoption in the Industrial Machinery and Components Industry. Read Guides and IT Reports Associated with Industrial Machinery and Components Industry. Customer churn rates are higher than ever: although businesses say they are devoted to loyalty, their management systems and budgets do not support that claim.

A common question that comes up in most discussions about lean is whether it’s the tools and processes, or the people that make lean work. In reality it is both.

Sustained Growth and Profitability through Lean Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
While open innovation is a hot topic, capitalizing on opportunity requires a holistic strategy—not just increased collaboration. Companies must have repeatable, compliant, and responsive business processes. These processes must be supplemented by a global information infrastructure that provides a single source of the truth, along with alignment across departmental silos, and solutions that evolve without coding.
