Lean Manufacturing: A Primer
Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical

EOQ is a type of fixed order quantity model that determines the amount of an item to be purchased or manufactured at one time, with the intent of minimizing the combined costs of acquiring and carrying inventory. The basic EOQ formula is: whereby d is the annual demand (expected or determined), c is the average cost of order preparation, i is the annual inventory carrying cost percentage, and u is

Demand-driven Planning in Manufacturing


Cover-time planning (CTP) is a "pull" system, but with the intent of planning and not merely waiting for the execution time to act.

batch based manufacturing  individual packages, whereby each batch within the consignment contains single products in consumer packs, each identified by its bar code. Prior to this, customer orders are automatically received by dispatch and the shipment is scheduled when orders are entered into the system, since the warehouse module is populated with parameters, allowing it to divide and suggest how each order should be packaged (e.g. whole pallet, half pallet, etc.). As customers are able to use the Internet to place orders Read More

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 achieving lean transition are defining value, mapping the value stream, making the activities flow, responding to customer demand, and continuous improvement.

batch based manufacturing  eliminating work in queue, batch processing, waiting, scrap, and unnecessary transportation in this way, should lead, in the best-case scenario, to single piece flow. Several tools can help organizations to achieve flow manufacturing, including total productive maintenance (TPM), leveled schedules ( heijunka ), long-term purchase agreements with suppliers, just-in-time (JIT) call-offs (possibly via electronic kanbans ), and supplier managed inventory (SMI) for raw materials. In addition, though it may be Read More

What Are Manufacturing Execution Systems?


A manufacturing execution system (MES) can be defined as a collection of business processes providing event-by-event, real-time execution of planned production requirements. However, market ambiguity and functional overlap with enterprise resource planning systems obscure what an MES can bring to an enterprise.

batch based manufacturing  specialized applications such as batch reporting and control. [italics added] What these lengthy definitions illustrate is that it can be difficult to easily identify or define the full range of applications used on the plant floor, let alone determine what falls exclusively under MES. Moreover, vendors never hesitate to add to the confusion by using creative labeling to suggest difference. To put MES into perspective, it can be defined both broadly and specifically. Broadly speaking, MES can be regarded Read More
