Sorting Through the ERP, Lean MFG, APS, and MES Clutter - Part 1
Especially in today’s globally competitive and recessionary environment it is imperative that companies further eliminate waste, become leaner, and become

Instead, these companies would be better served by implementing the abovementioned VPC concepts based on pull systems such as kanbans, combined with the company’s ability to make every part every interval (EPEI) in cyclical schedules (period batch control). The next part of this series will analyze whether the lean concepts are the answer for every Read More

The final part of this series will analyze how APS, as a manufacturing glue of sorts, relates to ERP, lean manufacturing, and MES. Is there a  value proposition  for integrating all these disparate systems?  How Do APS and ERP Relate to Each Other?

At long last, these days APS is finally being recognized for what it is – a key enabler for many manufacturing companies in becoming more agile, responsive, and efficient in dealing with variations in demand.  According to Preactor, there are still some lingering myths about APS , but some vindication has been coming to these long maligned solutions. Many of us might remember the late 1990’s when APS was hyped as a tool that would be Read More

Such customers typically buy packaged applications that custom fit their business or industry needs, and have smaller IT and limited development staff, but require more rapid business returns on investment (ROIs). This model is quite profitable for Progress Software, as it grows the top-line revenue for a much lower cost of sale, especially in the case of software-as-a-service (SaaS—see What is Software as a Service? ) deployments.

Leading Solution Provider to Steel Manufacturers Gets Acquired-Why?
When one company acquires another, who benefits? It seems PSI’s recent acquisition of AIS will benefit both—as well as their clients and the steel industry as a

As the company evolved in 2004, AIS branched off, first from MCE AG and then from VAI to become a more independent provider of MES and SCM IT solutions. AIS was taken over by Riverside in 2006, with the aim of better positioning itself financially in the steel industry market space. In August 2009, PSI acquired AIS to further its offerings in the steel industry. The AIS Product SteelPlanner is the name of the main AIS product. SteelPlanner Read More

The way volume ERP system use planning algorithms to aggregate demand (pull like demand together from different orders, or looking ahead to the future for economic batches) and possibly break down requirements into smaller batches (to make the plant more flexible) it is often difficult to see why any one job on the factory floor is needed or where its going to go.

Furthermore, higher-level functionality is limitless in the number of resources required for production, such as machinery, employee, tools, fixture, material, and more. The system ensures all of the resources are ready for production to begin. Leading manufacturers understand that orchestration of resourc Read More

If DCs have light manufacturing or kitting processes, they would like a best-of-breed APS or Q2O system that will better address their specific needs compared to ERP distribution software. In my opinion, the market for APS and Q20 has matured since last year. There are software vendors in the market who previously concentrated in a specialized vertical market, now these vendors have made the application more generic to other industries requiring APS and Q2 Read More

Within recent years, enterprise resource planning (ERP) has been redefined as a platform for enabling collaborative e-business globally. Originally focused on

APS systems were originally designed as bolt-ons with the idea of plugging into an ERP system's database to download information and then create a feasible schedule within identified constraints, such as finite capacity . The new schedule can then be uploaded into the ERP system thereby replacing the original MRP results. These APS systems typically offer simulation ( what if ) capabilities that allow the planner to analyze the results of an action before committing to Read More
