With the help of 3DVIA, different product stakeholders (including customers) will be able to access and, to a certain degree, create 3D product definition information more easily, less expensively (or even for free), and more conveniently (through the Web and even handheld devices such as the iPhone ). To me, the democratization of 3D content is like the introduction of personal computers (PCs). Both the big Read More

How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing

In most manufacturing companies, combined planning and scheduling is critical to the successful execution of the production process. Successful execution requires purchasing, production, shipping, customer service, engineering, and management to be “on the same page”. The planning process needs to be connected so that capacity loads are efficiently and effectively managed, while detailed and actionable schedules are communicated to production, Read More

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.

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

Getting Lean with Made2Manage Enterprise Software


In times of economic recession, many businesses take the opportunity to look inward and seek ways to streamline their operations. It’s no wonder that lean manufacturing has been such a hot topic across the manufacturing industry. Lean manufacturing helps manufacturers work smarter and more efficiently, and has become a refined version of traditional just-in-time (JIT) and demand flow manufacturing concepts.

Overcoming the Barrier of Traditional Accounting in Lean Environments


Manufacturers of all sizes are more efficient, better managed, and more profitable because of lean—yet this improvement has plateaued at many companies. What’s holding up the progress of lean? The real problem is that as lean evolves and spreads beyond the plant floor, its conflict with traditional accounting is escalating—and becoming more dangerous to the financial health of manufacturers.
