Case Study: Peerless Pump


Peerless Pump has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing pumps for more than 80 years. The company was basing component stock levels on historical data, as it did not have the ability to accurately forecast customer demand. But with forecasting and demand planning software that increased forecast accuracy, the company has nearly doubled its sales over the past four years, while keeping inventory levels constant.

According to one case study , OmniBOM provides a clear, concise view of all the changes to the initial BOM, and BOM comparisons are used to catch changes in the BOM from the customer, down to a single-digit change in the manufacturing part number. OmniBOM is lauded, by one customer, as its “most valued daily-use documentation tools [which also] ... enhances documentation communication Read More

FactoryMaster


FactoryMaster is a manufacturing software solution that can help organizations use the latest technology in the planning and day-to-day operation of commercial and production processes, covering all aspects of the business in one package. With knowlege in many divisions of manufacturing, FactoryMaster has built a complete modular system that addresses the issues facing manufacturing organizations in today's marketplace. As FactoryMaster adds new functionality requested by customers to the existing package, it has the advantage of offering one package to all customers, as well as an upgrade path for customers who choose to take maintenance and support. For the aerospace industry, FactoryMaster provides interfaces to most of the major aerospace players (including Exostar, Rolls Royce, and Airbus). These interfaces allow the solution to take direct feeds of sales order schedules and, within minutes, run a material resources planning (MRP) system to forecast and plan all materials and assembly requirements to fulfill these orders. This can provide an immediate response to new orders, and helps ensure that users can get an instant view of where issues concerning delivery timescales may occur. The solution also provides materials traceability, which helps give customers confidence that they can identify the source for any product they sell. For the automotive industry, FactoryMaster has built-in materials traceability so users can instantly see what went into each part and where it came from. This is essential for any organization that wishes to offer a quality service for its products. The system also has interfaces that allow data feeds into and out of the system, which eliminates re-keying and also speeds up the time needed to get information processed. Customers can then use these data feeds to do just-in-time production on daily orders. FactoryMaster has built-in control mechanisms that allow a quality plan to be implemented and tracked. An example of this is the drawing change control mechanism. All drawings are tracked by version numbers and so if a drawing changes, the user can instantly see the impact it may have on all aspects of the system, from quotes to work in progress. By allowing FactoryMaster users to track customer part numbers as well as their own internal part numbers, Factorymaster can instantly react to part number changes without impacting the work that is in progress. FactoryMaster also offers functionality for electronics manufacturers. The system allows large bills of material (BOMs), as well as sub-assemblies as part of this. This can allow flexibility in the way systems are constructed, with the use of third-party supplier parts being added into the bills of material. There are also functionalities that allow users to add extra information into the BOMs, such as circuit references. Traceability of the components is also an integral aspect, which gives an ideal trace for warranty claims and supplier rejects. With superior stock control using minimum or maximum stock levels, customers can have confidence that components will always be available. To back this up, the solution provides the MRP capability that can give users recommendations about what needs to be ordered and when it needs to be ordered, to fulfil any outstanding requirements.

10 Tips for Perfect (Nearly!) Inventory Accuracy


Even though we have made enormous advances in technology and business processes, many organizations and manufacturers still cannot perform basic warehouse operations without going into reactive mode. This is mainly due to a lack of proper or basic inventory record maintenance and accuracy. Some organizations don’t measure inventory in an accurate manner, or they don’t even have such

Dealing with Chaos: 4 Steps to Manufacturing Success


Manufacturing today is fraught with uncertainties in the supply chain due to a variety of global issues, including weather and exchange rates. You can counter supply problems with “safety stock.” But this extra inventory goes against the rules of an efficient lean environment. How can you stay demand driven, without a supply snafu? Find out how an information management system can help forecast your supply chain needs.

The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena


Lean principles are difficult to employ in complex environments, but materials requirement planning has well-known limitations. The theory of constraints, which is complementary to lean manufacturing when it comes to low volumes and complex environments, may provide an answer.

mrp prediction accuracy  for the shortcomings of MRP is often in setting the number of kanban cards in the system and the size of the kanban . Even with a help of computerized systems, this can become complex if the demand for each product varies significantly and the production layout is not line- or cell-based. The just-in-time (JIT) approach normally begins with limiting inventory in the system using a two-bin kanban method. This prevents the shop floor from being flooded with inventory and WIP, and the result is shorter produ Read More

Collaborative Demand Planning


In theory, demand planning is the foundation for profitable operations. But in practice, it is often a difficult endeavor. Accuracy can fluctuate wildly, and companies tend to react to inaccuracies with new investments in technology, processes, and people. However, new investments do not guarantee better forecasts. There are often fundamental issues that need to be addressed before achieving positive results.

Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations
