distributed manufacturing  the Promise of Distributed Manufacturing Outsourcing is increasingly embraced by manufacturers seeking ways to reduce costs, increase agility, and enhance market competitiveness. Yet poorly managed distributed manufacturing operations compromise visibility and quality control, which in turn erodes execution, management effectiveness, and profitability. To truly optimize the value of outsourcing, business systems and procedures must be deployed that create a collaborative, transparent information 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

distributed manufacturing  these costs can be distributed over a larger number of units, and thus become a smaller cost on a per piece basis. As long as changeover costs are high, small lot quantities are not cost efficient or justifiable. The obvious solution, then, is to lower or eliminate these fixed costs as much as possible so that smaller runs become feasible. It is this type of thinking that results in production lines that are designed so that there is little or no cost to change from one product to another. This means Read More...

A Manufacturing Imperative: Enterprise SOA
In the past, full efficiency was almost impossible for most manufacturing sites thanks to lack of integration between plant systems and business systems. But

distributed manufacturing  among plants within a distributed manufacturing network, IT developers cobbled together direct links between the different layers of applications. This kind of point-to-point integration made sense at the time, but it has resulted in a cobweb of hundreds, even thousands, of brittle interfaces. The complexity of linking large and disperse landscapes has literally crippled the health and flexibility of most manufacturing IT architectures and hence business performance. Adapting those systems and Read More...

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

distributed manufacturing  Manufacturing: A Primer 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 approaches. This is Part One of a multi-part note. For this reason, there has Read More...
