A Manufacturing Imperative: Enterprise SOA
In the past, full efficiency was almost impossible for most manufacturing sites thanks to lack of integration between plant systems and business systems. But

manufacturing techniques  (enterprise SOA) critical to manufacturing today? It’s all about the flexibility and adaptability that enterprise SOA gives you to integrate the factory floor with enterprise applications and to make needed changes to your processes without the enormous cost and time of creating new interfaces. The home theater system and its evolution provide a striking analogy to information technology’s trek to enterprise SOA and the required technology platform. Consider what you can do with today’s home 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

manufacturing techniques  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 workflows, Read More...

manufacturing techniques  ERP . However, flow manufacturing leverages some additional techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day (i.e., through the so called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times to fill customer orders ever more quickly. Flow manufacturing in particular leverages mathematical tools to automate some of the aspects of lean manufacturing. For example, a mathematical model determines the daily production commensurate with demand, defining Read More...
