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
PLM (Vendors) and Lean Product Development - Part I: An Overview
“Basically, lean is [focused on] creating more value with less work.” – Wikipedia, Lean ManufacturingNo matter who can be credited with making this

making lean  can be credited with making this statement, I have to thank him or her. This statement allows people to apply lean principles in broader circumstances than manufacturing. Following this idea, I’d like to define lean product development (LPD) as this: LPD is focused on developing more products better and with use of fewer resources. To be more specific, LPD contains the following three major elements, in my view: 1. Productivity in product development . Productivity is composed of two aspects: 1) individ 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
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

All these approaches are based on similar principles that are collectively referred to as “lean” ideas. While a lean approach to manufacturing and services is straightforward, applying lean to knowledge work can be challenging. Find out why, and what you can do about it. Read More

Making Sense of the Wireless WAN Hype


making lean  Sense of the Wireless WAN Hype Wild West is a metaphor often used to describe the wireless wide area network (WAN) business. But it s worse than that. In the Old West, everyone had a gun. In this business, customers are defenseless. What s going on? Well, for one, vendors are playing fast and loose with terminology that should mean something. Wireless is compelling, but how do you decide what s right for you—and who do you trust? Read More

The systems these businesses use, however, have changed relatively little in comparison. The ERP systems manufacturing companies rely on to run their business are greatly at odds with the strategy and processes lean manufacturers use to maintain their competitive advantage. Read More

Case studies provide one approach for understanding how kanbans support variations in lean practices, including the case where a work Read More
Japanese Decision-making Processes Can Influence Enterprise Content Management Functionality
Traditional Japanese Decision-making, or Ringi The decision-making process in North American companies operates within a centralized system, and generally

This traditional and formal decision-making process, which is even now employed in Japanese governmental offices as well as companies, is called the ringi system. In a typical Japanese company, to finalize a decision in the decision-making process, a proposal document is first created by a lower-level manager as a paper document with a written statement of proposal. This is then passed on to the manager of the next higher level 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

For example, traditionally, given competitive realities, it was almost exclusively automotive companies that deployed lean techniques such as kanban and sequencing.
