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

theory of constraints jit  Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena Limitations of Flow Manufacturing Just as manufacturing realities are continuously changing, so is lean thinking evolving. For example, traditionally, given competitive realities, it was almost exclusively automotive companies that deployed lean techniques such as kanban and sequencing. Today, however, there are some strong indications that only one in five companies using kanban are in the automotive industry. This is Part Six of a multi-part Read More...

Thus, LSA''s VISUAL Enterprise suite is a shop floor oriented extended-ERP system with embedded finite scheduling and constraints management in mind. Its VISUAL APS module, which is based on concurrent scheduling of materials and capacity, was patented with the US Patents in 1998 (i.e., US Patent No. 5,787,000). The product suite also Read More...
PeopleSoft Gathers Manufacturing and SCM Wherewithal Part Three: The Manufacturing Industry
Even before the mega merger, PeopleSoft had already set it sights on a bigger manufacturing presence. PeopleSoft’s acquisition of mid-to-large ERP system

theory of constraints jit  Sufficient (with another recognized theory of constraints [TOC] guru E. Goldratt),. At its recent PeopleSoft Connect US and European user conferences, PeopleSoft repeatedly pointed out that it has been very serious about the manufacturing industry. In hindsight, Ptak''s hiring followed up by the high profile acquisition of mid-to-large ERP system developer J.D. Edwards this summer, and most recently demand flow and lean manufacturing software solution from JCIT, might indicate some deeply thought out Read More...

theory of constraints jit  APS Logic and the Theory of Constraints The theory of constraints (abbreviated as TOC) is a management philosophy that focuses attention on the constraining resource within a production process. As a simplified explanation, TOC starts with the production rate of the pacemaker resource, and a time buffer or inventory buffer to protect the constraining resource from disruptions. The production rate and buffer reflect the family of items produced by the resource. Operations at prior (and subsequent) Read More...

theory of constraints jit  based on the proverbial Theory of Constraints (TOC) authored by Eli Goldratt, giving customers the ability to synchronize demand with the capacity to meet that demand, while remaining cost-effective. The method is particularly applicable to custom-built and custom-configured manufacturing environments often seen in the industrial and commercial equipment sector because their long lead times and high precision processes often produce bottlenecks and are not amenable to lean manufacturing practices (for Read More...

theory of constraints jit  the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence: A 360-Degree Perspective For many companies, total cost of ownership (TCO) of business intelligence (BI) solutions is out of control. And the problem is growing, fueled by ever-increasing demands from the user community, massive new sources for data, new capabilities, shadow it landscapes, and the cost of keeping people abreast of all the changes. This paper focuses on developing a framework for monitoring and managing the TCO of BI. Read More...
