Sorting Through the ERP, Lean MFG, APS, and MES Clutter - Part 3


Part 1 of this blog series started with a discussion of the fact that the ability to sense demand and become a demand-driven (responsive) business is more than just the catch phrase du jour: it has become a recipe for survival. For the past few decades, the providers of a multiplicity of by-and-large integrated manufacturing software solutions have been offering help for embattled manufacturers

aps lean manufacturing  (which leads to waste), APS and lean are not mutually exclusive.  Value Stream Mapping (VSM)  or similar techniques ( mentioned in Part 2 ) are required to identify issues, streamline processes, and remove non value-add steps. Certainly, lean concepts and business objectives can be built into scheduling rules. As mentioned earlier,  Visual Process Control (VPC)  and  kanbans  reduce inventory but mainly for so-called “runner” products that have relatively level demand patterns. For many other Read More

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 is complementary to lean manufacturing when it comes to low volumes and complex environments, may provide an answer.

To that end, although Intentia has been providing TOC-based solutions for some fifteen years, in the fall of 2005, it launched a new TOC production planning system that incorporates the DBR scheduling technique. Intentia believes this will increase throughput, minimize inventory, and reduce operating expenses—all while helping to shorten the time to benefit of lean manufacturing by optimizing complex production scenarios. Intentia has reportedly Read More

PeopleSoft Manufacturing - This Time For Sure?!


PeopleSoft claims that its next major release, PeopleSoft 8, which is due in a few weeks time, will allay persistent perceptions that PeopleSoft is still not a full-fledged player in manufacturing.

Assuming the above-mentioned new manufacturing functionality is for real, bundled with CRM 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 information and flexibility; place value on performance gaps and create matrixes of tools and applications to prioritize issues.

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 leaned-out and rationalized, it may be discovered that many products should be built on a cell or line that has more people and a mix of equipment to assemble a large variety of Read More

Manufacturing Strategy: An Adaptive Perspective


Adaptive manufacturing enables companies to produce goods efficiently and manage variability proactively. However, it must be managed as an end-to-end, closed-loop process with tight linkages between manufacturing applications, adjacent enterprise applications, and—most importantly—the technology behind these applications. Such integrated networks enable the process visibility and collaboration capabilities that, ultimately, are the key to building an adaptive manufacturing enterprise.
