Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints
The theory of constraints (TOC) is similar to, yet different from, the lean philosophy. TOC focuses on optimizing production through critical bottlenecks in order to meet market demand.

BUFFER OVERRUN: work (i.e., an inventory buffer is kept in front of the bottleneck to ensure that it is never idle). Subordinate everything else to the constraint. Since the efficiency at other resources does not really matter, there is no point in upstream work centers producing more work than the constraint can absorb. It is sufficient to provide an indication of the task priority of other non-bottleneck resources, since the utilization of non-bottlenecks is determined by the critical bottleneck. Elevate the

Enterprise Resource Planning Vendors Address Lean Manufacturing
Intentia, Fujitsu Glovia, QAD, and SSA Global's solutions supporting lean manufacturing are examined. Which areas the extended enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors excel in depends on their original ERP system's suitability for repetitive versus to-order environments.

BUFFER OVERRUN: service levels, and the buffer performance evaluation. Accordingly, buffer or supermarket master data within the QAD application identifies details of buffer stock calculations, such as current maximum buffer stock, the method used for determining buffer, the order point (either calculated as the sum of the demand over the lead time [DLT] and the safety stock or set manually), safety stock or safety time, service level, buffer evaluation limits (e.g., warning only or critical), limits expressed as percent

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.

BUFFER OVERRUN: include drum-buffer-rope (DBR) scheduling, buffer management, and VAT analysis [a procedure for determining the general flow of parts and products from raw materials to finished products]. Performance measurement includes throughput, inventory and operating expense, and the five focusing steps. In traditional manufacturing, goods are pushed through production at levels determined by often inaccurate scheduling and forecasting tools common in MRP II (an evolutionary step up from MRP that tries to marry fi

IBM and Partners Load the Guns in Europe
IBM has launched a service provider initiative in Europe, a move that underlines the growing trend to 'coopetition' behavior among service providers and technology partners; however, it will be on a scale much vaster than the one-on-one relationships that have been the vogue for the past couple of years. The implications of a partnership between a legacy giant and emerging new players are worldwide.

Competing Globally—Predicting Demand and Delivering Optimally
To benefit from globalization (or to meet its threat), a food manufacturer must be prepared. To sell into new markets, the manufacturer needs to be a better partner, and collaborate with customers who have different needs from its traditional customers.

BUFFER OVERRUN: efficiency depends on minimum buffer stocks, integrated processes, efficient use of resources, and shorter lead times. Nonetheless, experience shows that companies either struggle with a surplus of reliance on local knowledge, chance-taking, and effective fire-fighting; or else spend time and effort developing their own supporting systems (usually glorified spreadsheets) to help to better manage inventory levels. To support a demand-driven supply chain, consumer goods companies must employ

shocks”, suppliers have less  buffer inventory (safety stocks) , whereby  lead times (latencies)  are increasing. To this end, there have been the following two classical responses of SCM executives at enterprises: Increase safety stocks — and good luck with the chief financial officer (CFO) who will “love” this tying up of his/her working capital and cash. Reduce customer service levels — and increase the number of “stock out” situations with customer disappointments as a result.

ERP Systems and the ETO Manufacturing MarketPart Three: User Recommendations
Companies that are project manufacturers, engineer-to-order (ETO), build-to-order, jobbing shops or contract manufacturers should think carefully when selecting an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Given the maturity of the ERP market, its ongoing consolidation, and that fact that competitive advantage is hard enough for manufacturers to find, they should not compromise on their requirements.
