Lean Operations: Software Strategies for Manufacturing's New Normal


Throughout the 2000s, manufacturers were giving up on Lean. A “build it and we can sell it” attitude was adopted. Manufacturers responded to the 2008 economic collapse with aggressive cuts to inventory and head count. The worst is over. This research examines what’s changed and how to intelligently ramp up production and inventory, with an eye towards recapturing core Lean principles while also adopting a new technology.

The Transformation of the Lean Enterprise


Over the past 30–40 years, manufacturers have made dramatic leaps in improving their businesses by using lean manufacturing and Six Sigma techniques. The systems these businesses use, however, have changed relatively little in comparison. The ERP systems manufacturing companies rely on to run their business are greatly at odds with the strategy and processes lean manufacturers use to maintain their competitive advantage.

Integrating Lean Practices and ERP


Many organizations are undertaking some form of lean initiative, but if one were to ask one hundred different people, one would probably different explanations from each person. With a variety of methods, techniques, and terms bandied about, many are forced to use the same definition that the late Justice Potter Stewart used for pornography: “I know it when I see it.” Shop floor practices that move inventory to the point of consumption, like kanban, are also associated with lean. But what really is lean? And does it go beyond the shop floor to impacts all areas of the business?

Quote-to-order: One Big, Lean Machine Adds High Tech to Its Mix


BigMachines differentiates itself in the quote-to-order (Q2O) sphere due to its solutions’ lean end-to-end, inquiry-to-order focus. Although there are other vendors offering Q2O as a service, BigMachines product is arguably more flexible, as high tech manufacturers may be noting.

The on-demand technology and implementation methodology takes less time and resources than Read More

Engineering and Environmental Simulation Software for the Mining Industry


Mine evaluation studies, including those that support mine water management or environmental compliance, are rife with challenges. The biggest: to quantitatively evaluate alternative approaches for completing projects, and to identify and manage associated risks. Models must be accurate, and yet still take uncertainty into account. Learn how a simulation tool can you help forecast the behavior of complex mining systems.

Lean Asset Management--Is Preventive Maintenance Anti-Lean?


How can we determine the right maintenance strategy for a specific asset? To meet the objectives of lean, we need to evaluate the cost of failure in terms of both not meeting business objectives and any extra cost due to the need for unplanned or even emergency repairs.

roa lean simulation  widely accepted as an approach to business improvement. The business benefits of lean have been extensively documented. Asset management should play a role in lean. Lean manufacturing''s focus is eliminating waste, for example: Inventory—Inventory must always be minimized. Defect correction—Resources spent on defect correction are waste. Unnecessary processing—All unnecessary activities, particularly non-value-adding ones, are to be avoided. Unnecessary motion—Materials and work in progress (WIP) Read More

System Models and Simulation


Understanding how a system really works is the first step toward using, improving, automating, or explaining it to others. The basic concept of a system is that it is driven by cause and effect—but there is so much more to understanding its full complexity. The best place to start is by learning how causal loop diagrams (CLDs) are used to model dynamic systems by identifying variables and causal effects.
