The old idea that lean manufacturing and six sigma principles don’t require IT isn’t valid anymore. Enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management (SCM) applications are critical for enabling holistic, lean manufacturing operations, and work hand-in-hand to better enable consumption—not forecasts—to drive Read More

However, aerospace and defense (A&D) government regulations impose very different business practices from those followed in the commercial sector. Can lean manufacturing principles really work in A&D? The answer: it depends on the architecture of the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Read More
Lean and World Class Manufacturing and the Information Technology Dilemma-The Loss of Corporate Consciousness
Companies relying on manual implementation and support for lean and world class methodologies risk losing corporate consciousness. Avoid the pitfalls of lost

rapid lean  by the need for rapid results seldom leaves time or resources to update the data upon which corporate consciousness depends. As a result, the forward-looking functionality and relevance of ERP APS is weakened or severed entirely. To add to the dilemma, the detailed granular information needed to do many of the tasks for lean-out processes may not be supported by legacy IT applications. Consider a process where fifteen components are assembled today at a work station by one person. As processes are Read More
