How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing
Lean manufacturing is a transformational exercise that requires an organization to cast aside long-held beliefs and business processes. The five main steps to

This should result in major reductions in work-in-process (WIP) and production cycle times. The number of cards to print and use for each item and receiving location can either be entered manually or calculated and updated automatically in an enterprise system. Kanban cards contain somewhat differing information for production cards , which signal that the container should be filled with new parts (i.e., Read More...

Quick Response Manufacturing: ERP and Value Chain Acceleration
Whatever the reasons for pursuing a lead-time reduction strategy, time compression across all company processes is critical to growth, and in some cases means

backflushing manufacturing  To complete the cycle, backflushing of component inventory is performed based on completed production. The repetitive manufacturing process reduces the number of steps required to manufacture product. It minimizes the number of times an order is touched and open to error, while offering a simpler and faster flow of materials and information. CASE STUDY 3 A manufacturer of fastening equipment for the construction industry (i.e., nail guns) was able to automate their manufacturing process from receipt of Read More...

For example, backflushing can be used on the shop floor, and supplier purchase orders can be electronically sent or completely eliminated using Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) solutions. Cut Operations Costs Although recent developments in planning and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) have focused more on top-line benefits-growing revenue-the bottom line is still greatly dependent on controlling costs. Companies with a lower operational cost structure enjoy an obvious advantage Read More...
Manual versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing
All good lean systems have both physical systems in the plant and near real time information technology backbones that centralize data. The primary advantage of

In fact, enterprise systems can even be used to support mistake proofing, thereby helping to prevent manufacturing defects from occurring in the first place and minimizing the impact that defects have on downstream activities. Computerized systems can prevent product defects by making standardized processes, critical documentation, and other quality information available to production personnel on an Read More...

The lean philosophy has lately been getting an increased interest with the prospect of breaking like a huge wave across industry, given that the ERP systems of the 1990s have been burdened with a liability of carrying on some well-publicized MRP problems like complex BOMs; inefficient workflows; and unnecessary (i.e., no value-adding) transactions, activities, and data collections. While several years ago Read More...
Best Manufacturing Scheduling Systems
The market place is awash with many kinds of manufacturing scheduling systems. Due to the dynamic nature of the manufacturing shop floor, it is of utmost

backflushing manufacturing  Manufacturing Scheduling Systems Introduction All manufacturing planning and scheduling systems can be broadly grouped into two kinds: static and dynamic . While static systems cannot deal with changing conditions prevalent on shop floors, dynamic systems are able to deal with them to varying degrees, depending on the system's inherent capabilities. Static scheduling systems can be deployed at manufacturing sites where orders are repetitive and there are minimal variations among the products and Read More...

Capacity is generally more than 1 million tonnes per annum, and in many big plants, it is more than 10 million tonnes per annum. The raw materials that are consumed are also in huge quantities, be it coal (coking coal or non-coking coal depending on technology used for iron making), iron ore, limestone, dolomite, or any other raw material. Properties of these raw materials vary greatly. Despite the mix Read More...

Process Manufacturing: Industry Specific Requirements Part One: Introduction
As with any manufacturing operation, process manufacturing has special system requirements such as formulas, unit of measure conversions, and packaging recipes.

backflushing manufacturing  Manufacturing: Industry Specific Requirements Part One: Introduction Introduction Traditionally, manufacturing is categorized by two methods: process and discrete. Many differences exist, but most can be grouped into two areas: those derived from material issues and those derived from production issues. Process materials are different than discrete materials. Process materials are powder, liquids or gases; they must be confined; and they are more difficult to accurately measure. Process materials Read More...
