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.

Solomon Software: Breaking Away from Perception as “Best-of-Breed-Accounting” Vendor


Due to its late expansion into the ERP world, the company has been trailed by its reputation of a best-of-breed accounting software vendor. While Solomon has accelerated its schedule of new functionality, it will be hard pressed with tight “time-to-market” constraints.

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  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 Read More

Federal Contract Management and Vendors' Readiness Part Three: Meeting Federal Requirements


Companies that are not already offering the capabilities of meeting the exacting, stringent requirements of federal agencies will likely not be able to tap the recent surge in the federal and defense markets. Conversely, those vendors and their users--government contractors--who can deliver comprehensive solutions that satisfy the requirements of federal agencies are in the driver's seat to capture that market segment.

While these functionalities may sound ordinary and appear to be offered by many vendors as supported'' when responding to requests for information (RFI), subsequent product demonstration often reveals the need for some tweaking or even for a major modification in order to satisfy stringent customer requirements. The devil is always in details. For a detailed discussion see MRO and Spare Parts Management Considerations . Challenges Read More

What Is ERP in 2010?


When the term “enterprise resource planning” (ERP) was introduced, it applied primarily to the planning and management of resources needed to manufacture goods. Today, however, most business decision makers realize that their enterprises rely upon resources, and that planning is essential to optimize how those resources are acquired, allocated, and used. Learn how the definition of ERP has evolved, and what it means today.

ERP: Origins, Developments, and Trends


ERP first developed as a form of inventory control and later grew to link disparate bodies of information together from across the enterprise. Now, ERP enhancements include SCM, CRM, and e-commerce features, just to name a few. However, where is this technology going? What does it mean now?

mrp prediction  a US tractor maker, MRP promised to automatically plan, build, and purchase requirements based on the finished products, the current and allocated inventory, and expected arrivals. Master production schedule (MPS) was built to monitor the finished goods. Naturally data from MPS fed into the MRP, which contained phased, net requirements for planning the procurement of sub-assembly components, raw materials, and ingredients. MRP gave planners more control, allowing them to be proactive and use time phased Read More

QAD Pulling Through, Patiently But Passionately Part Four: Market Impact Continued


QAD has long shifted its focus from being a mere ERP vendor dedicated to the industrial mid-market to fully leveraging the Internet in the applications it provides to manufacturers and distributors to link their back-office systems to those of their business partners via private trading exchanges.

mrp prediction  from the MPS and MRP planned orders are pushed out to the factory floor and in stock. External suppliers also work to support planned production, while materials management often relies on maintaining sufficient inventory, using a make-to-stock (MTS) rather than make-to-order (MTO) or assemble-to-order (ATO) approach. In traditional manufacturing, the time and cost of changeover to produce different products is high, as are the costs of inventory, planning, and expediting. Lean manufacturing and JIT Read More

How Much Supply Chain Optimization Do We Really Need? - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series introduced the concept of (Rapid) Response Management in the realm of supply chain management (SCM) via a software category pioneer, Kinaxis. The currently bullish Kinaxis has a number of customers that are SAP ERP customers too, and for a long time SAP was at first dismissive (or at least ambivalent) regarding the need for Response Management, as the company had its own

mrp prediction  These rapid (or not) MRP solutions then have to do some post-processing to try to smooth out the mountain peaks (capacity or material peaks) into valleys to respect constraints, but these are not quality executable solutions. In other words, SAP believes that the unconstrained scheduling solutions are suitable for high-level planning tasks such as sales an operations planning (S&OP), but they do not generate operating plans of high quality. Like Kinaxis RapidResponse, ICON-SCM offers a user interface Read More

Meeting the Challenges of Product Traceability with Automated Data Collection


An effective traceability system involves determining which product and manufacturing process attributes to collect and maintain—and deciding when during the manufacturing process to begin collecting those attributes. Do you begin with raw material attributes from the supplier, at inspection, at assembly, at shipping? Explore the many facets of meeting product traceability challenges using automated data collection.

For example, when MRP first came out, companies that had software for MRP were really hot, and consultants who could actually implement MRP and had the domain expertise of MRP for different industries were in big demand. Of course, what happens is after a while, say a decade or so, those concepts become mature, and it''s hard to be a thought leader on old thoughts—it''s much easier to be a thought leader on new things. After MRP, supply chain came around along with the APS approach to Read More

Debunking the Myths Surrounding Computer-based Scheduling


To expedite planning production, many companies have gone the way of integration with a manufacturing resource planning (MRP) or enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Although these systems have paved the way in planning production, they can leave a lot to be desired. Learn how manufacturing production scheduling (MPS) can be enhanced by finite scheduling and advanced planning and scheduling (APS) systems.
