SAP Manufacturing
Managing complexity while enhancing agility is a real challenge. To respond to customer needs, manufacturers must reduce their time to market and time to volume. And to respond to demand and supply shifts, they must be able to adapt to changing situations. To meet these challenges, companies require integrated solutions ensuring that manufacturing runs at the pace of their business.

Lean Manufacturing
In the manufacturing arena, lean is a top topic. And though companies expect a big payoff from the lean approach to manufacturing—including increases in production capacity and product quality, reduced production time and inventories, etc.—there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ philosophy of applying lean principles to every manufacturing organization. Find out how you need to view lean to get the most out of it for your particular organization.

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 areas of hidden waste are over-production, waiting, transportation, over-processing, motion, excessive inventory, and defective units.

DISCRETE MANUFACTURING: Lean Manufacturing: A Primer Lean Manufacturing: A Primer P.J. Jakovljevic - February 13, 2006 Read Comments Introduction It is not exactly breaking news that, due to the need for driving down costs and increasing efficiency, manufacturers (if not enterprises of all kinds) are increasingly subject to massive pressures. These pressures, however, often invalidate the traditional materials requirements planning (MRP) batch- and push-based production planning and associated economies of scale product costing

How to Choose a Manufacturing System
Your Challenge: Get Decision Makers' Approval for a Manufacturing System. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-Bound. If you’ve worked for more than one manufacturing company, you know that each one is different. Different processes, systems, problems—all these variations mean you need a system tailored to your needs. And with so many available solutions, you could spend months looking at demos, and still not find it. However, you can start by asking yourself eight simple questions.

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.

DISCRETE MANUFACTURING: in one transaction for discrete times or time buckets. Such schedule level management tools can enable users to receive demands with different levels of accuracy or validity from different partners within the customer organization, while managing different types of demands, such as consolidated customer forecasts, customer forecasts, customer call-offs and JIT call-offs, customer sales reports, and sales statistics. The tool can be either integrated with various electronic data interchange (EDI)

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.

DISCRETE MANUFACTURING: used at an electronics discrete manufacturing facility is similar only in concept to one used at a food processing plant, and these differ substantially from that used by a pharmaceutical or chemical manufacturer. Time and experience have led the most successful vendors to pursue a “narrow-and-deep” strategy, and to devote their software development to the industries they know best. Even still, the names given to the various components of the execution systems vary greatly among industries and even

SaaS-ing the Manufacturing Opportunity
The software as a service (SaaS) delivery model is here to stay, and most vendors have noticed. Recently, the endorsement for SaaS in the realm of manufacturing enterprise resource planning has come from a veteran vendor and SaaS pioneer.

DISCRETE MANUFACTURING: SaaS-ing the Manufacturing Opportunity SaaS-ing the Manufacturing Opportunity P.J. Jakovljevic - December 14, 2007 Read Comments The Need for New Delivery Models Recently ordained the topic du jour , it is now apparent that software as a service (SaaS)—also known as on-demand, hosted delivery—models of enterprise applications are not the passing fads that the Y2K or dot-com phenomena of the late 1990s were. The rationale thereof, however, depends on whom one asks for an opinion (that is, whether the

Preparing for Product Development in Process Manufacturing
Combining process industry–oriented product lifecycle management capabilities with process manufacturing–oriented enterprise resource planning ones can help alleviate many of the challenges particular to the process manufacturers, especially in the areas of product development and regulatory compliance.

DISCRETE MANUFACTURING: block. Thus, where with discrete manufacturing one talks of parts or components, with process manufacturing one speaks of ingredients. Similarly, formulas take the place of bills of materials (BOMs), and convertible units of measure (i.e., pounds, bags, boxes, ounces, and liters) can be related to units. Thus, food, beverages, chemicals, paints, drugs, and many consumer packaged good s (CPG) are produced quite differently than their discrete counterparts. This is because process manufacturing typically
