Case Study: Peerless Pump


Peerless Pump has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing pumps for more than 80 years.

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 "quantity of one" (i.e., through the so-called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times in order to quickly fill customer orders.

mrp inventory forecasting  forecasting tools common in MRP II (material resource planning)/ERP systems. These levels often exceed demand, resulting in building excessive finished inventory, while in a flow/lean/JIT environment orders are pulled through the process, based on actual demand. By contrast, rather than emphasizing planning like ERP, lean manufacturing and JIT concepts emphasize the continuous improvement of processes that lead to things such as reduced inventory throughout the supply chain, shorter lead times, and 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 HR. Moreover, flow should be a company-wide strategy that impacts more than manufacturing.

mrp inventory forecasting  companies will still use MRP to ascertain longer-term dependent demand (i.e., based on forecasts), but replenishment will be based on independent demand (i.e., actual customer orders), with closely managed inventory buffers. Customer demand cannot be predicted months ahead, since nothing is that certain. Thus, many ERP systems are employing heuristics, algorithms, and even simulations to estimate the uncertainty in demand and effects of constraints on the shop floor. Understanding these variations then Read More

Demand-driven Versus Traditional Materials Requirement Planning


Material requirements planning is a system that strives to plan replenishment just before a withdrawal from stock, which does not work in some manufacturing environments.

Finally, MRP is a set of techniques that uses bill of material (BOM) data, inventory data, and MPS to calculate requirements for materials, to make recommendations to release replenishment orders for materials. Further, because it is time-phased, it makes recommendations to reschedule open orders when due dates and need dates are not in phase.
