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

making lean  unneeded, excess goods or making needed goods too early or in too large a quantity. This could also be described as giving in to the temptation to make goods just-in-case rather than just-in-time (JIT). Traditionally, manufacturers have used the concept of economic order quantity (EOQ), which is also known as economic lot size or minimum cost order quantity, to determine their optimal manufacturing batch and lot sizes or quantities of purchased materials. EOQ is a type of fixed order quantity model that Read More
Moving Beyond Lean Manufacturing to a Lean Supply Chain
Most lean manufacturing deployments target production operations, but can also be extended to other supply chain processes. To realize the multiplicative

Traditionally, the enemy to profitability and responsiveness is the inventory buffers that must be in place to counter unpredictable manufacturing performance. Processes that result in a quick response to change while maintaining control of operations will become an indispensable manufacturing advantage. The advantages of lean manufacturing concepts with demand driven techniques, Read More

Front-office Lean-Taking Lean Manufacturing Beyond the Shop Floor
Lean manufacturing practices are employed to some degree on almost every manufacturing floor, but many companies aren't realizing the real benefits of lean by

making lean  measurements against requirements, 4) making the appropriate changes to meet requirements and increase productivity, and 5) standardizing the new operations. Using this technique, it is possible in a very short amount of time to identify waste in front-office processes by asking questions that many companies never ask about their administrative activities, such as “What does it cost to process a purchase order, sales quotation, or estimate? What are the steps involved in these processes, and what value Read More

It is still challenging or even unsuitable to use in a jobbing shop producing highly configure-to-order (CTO) or engineer-to-order (ETO) products with high Read More

Manual versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing
All good lean systems have both physical systems in the plant and near real time information technology backbones that centralize data. The primary advantage of

making lean  prevent product defects by making standardized processes, critical documentation, and other quality information available to production personnel on an as-needed basis. Monitoring systems can also be used to flag defect-related issues instantly, alert downstream workers and activities, and record information for later analysis. On the other hand, rate-based scheduling applications can be used to stop production within manufacturing cells, allow workers to identify and correct defects, and then reschedule Read More
