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

dbr  elevate this new constraint. DBR Explained The DBR process is used within TOC to manage resources in order to maximize throughput. In simplified terms, throughput becomes the critical index of production performance. The barrier to maximum throughput is typically thwarted by a single capacity-constrained resource (CCR), or bottleneck, so the focus is on maximizing utilization of that bottleneck. The term drum-buffer-rope encapsulates the main concepts of DBR. The drum refers to the rate or pace of Read More

Lilly Software - Product Enhancements Remain Its Order 'Du Jour' Part Two: Market Impact
Lilly continues to invest uncompromisingly in R&D, and consequently espouses a convincing broad but compact product portfolio for its target market.

dbr  end, recently released VISUAL DBR (Drum-Buffer-Rope) module is an extension of VISUAL APS with added buffer management, in which manufacturing users are invited to transform themselves using the methodologies and which is supporting Lilly's professed risk-reward sharing opportunity. When implementing DBR and TIP concepts, companies reportedly must agree to fundamentally change their business operations at least. Rather than try to maximize the use of many resources, VISUAL DBR typically maximizes the use Read More
Lilly Software - Product Enhancements Remain Its Order 'Du Jour' Part Four: Challenges and User Recommendations
LSA’s need to re-deploy the product on a new technology and to deliver the needed functionality for its new desired markets, will demand a continued hefty R&D

dbr  philosophy should consider Lilly's DBR finite scheduling approach. Those opting for the TIP approach with even the risk/gain sharing proposition, should proceed cautiously by: Stipulating unambiguously how measurements will be done, and the gain-sharing enforced Doing a pilot project proof of concept by having only a small part of the contract scope subject to gain-sharing Determining the maximum value of the payment to the vendor, in case of tremendous benefits to you Companies that require strong 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

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 implemented its new TOC production planning solution at four customer sites in Scandinavia, and these organizations have purportedly experienced immediate improvements. Projects are currently underway at four Read More
SuiteWorld 2014: NetSuite’s Cloud Ebullience Goes On
“NetSuite is the real deal in the enterprise applications space”—the main message of the recent SuiteWorld 2014 conference—was proven by CEO Zach Nelson during

dbr  now that incorporates Drum-Buffer-Rope (DBR), 6 Sigma, the Theory of Constraints (TOC), and other lean concepts to reduce the traditional MRP nervousness (frequent exception messages). Ultriva and IQity are partners for manufacturing execution system (MES), quality, scheduling, sequencing, and similar plant-level capabilities. Autodesk is the product lifecycle management (PLM) partner, and the two cloud vendors now have about 20 joint customers (some even doing digital prototyping/3D printing, direct to Read More
Made2Manage Systems 'One Year After': Reenergized and Growing Part Three: Market Impact
Part of Made2Manage Systems acquisition strategy includes taking on a more global presence through acquisition of non-US companies that offer software, services, and support, particularly companies that sell direct into non-US countries, although not limited to that. Its growth strategy states that it plans to grow organically via new system sales, customer sales, and customer retention, and also growth via acquisition.

dbr  uses an associated drum-buffer-rope (DBR) scheduling approach to help identify a facility s bottleneck resource (work center or drum), buffer or feed it to keep it running, and subordinate (rope) other resource s or work centers schedules to that bottleneck. By leveraging powerful optimization algorithms and intuitive Gantt chart facility, users can optionally confine schedules by the addition of resources in the bottleneck work center, by adding any number of secondary work centers or by recording the a Read More
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.

dbr  support for the drum-buffer-rope (DBR) scheduling technique will be provided later in this series, but for more information on this vendor, see Intentia s Movex for Food and Beverage: Gaining a Foothold in North America . Fujitsu Glovia Although Glovia originated in the US market, owing to parent Fujitsu s involvement since the 1990s, it has enjoyed its greatest success with Japanese companies. It also works extensively with Japanese companies in the US. glovia.com s support for kanbans , serial effecti Read More
A Semi-open Source Vendor Discusses Market Trends
A response to trends in the open source software market comes this time from relative newcomer provider xTuple. This vendor’s footprint isn’t entirely in the open source door, however, with OpenMFG, its commercially licensed solution with an open source infrastructure.

dbr  (TOC) and simplified Drum-Buffer-Rope (S-DBR) concepts (see The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena ). The developed code was footnoted with references to the fathers of TOC, Goldratt and Schragenheim. The solution looks deceptively simple, but many people actually take a while to get it (learn and understand) because it appears to be counterintuitive at first. Basically, the target customer for this solution is someone who has pulled out half his or her hair trying to program th Read More
