Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial
Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the

example flow diagram  of lean manufacturing. For example, a mathematical model corresponds daily production with actual demand, defines line designs to allow materials to flow at a steady rate to meet that demand, and uses proper sequencing to improve throughput. The idea is to synchronize product assembly to make each like product unit at a consistent rate and meet the particular day's demand. The takt time (i.e., the available production time divided by the rate of customer demand) and total product cycle time are used to

Managing the Weakest Link in Your Supply Chain


Recent uncertainty in the global economy is not only having a negative impact on international economies, but an equally deleterious effect on global supply chains. As with the international economies they serve, global supply chains are interwoven and inextricably linked to one another.

Here’s an example of a typical process flow in a steel manufacturing plant: A customer order is entered in the ERP module, which communicates with the supply chain management (SCM) module to figure out which orders can be met by on-hand inventory or by creating a production plan. This information is fed back and forth between levels 4 and 5 on one hand, and levels 3, 2, and 1 on the other, so that a promise date can be sent back on customer orders. The supply chain Read More

How Not-for-profit Organizations Can Reduce Costs and Practice Better Financial Management with Microsoft Dynamics GP


One of the biggest “time-wasters” in not-for-profit organizations is the constant reentry of data from one system to another. For example, many organizations must manually reenter information from their fundraising applications to their accounting systems. This is error-prone, costs valuable time, and delays important reporting. The solution lies in finding efficient ways to share information—across the organization.

Justification of ERP Investments Part 1: Quantifiable Benefits from an ERP System


Studies that surveyed manufacturers about the impact of ERP systems on firm performance indicate that company size and industry do not affect the results. Benefits have been indicated for large and small firms, whether they make standard or custom products or are in discrete or process manufacturing environments. This section explains the quantifiable benefits in terms of several areas of improvement. Reprinted from Maximizing Your ERP System by Dr. Scott Hamilton.

Using industry averages for each major benefit, the improved business processes and associated information system almost double the current pretax income. Inventory Reduction . A 20 percent reduction in the current inventory of $3 million results in ongoing benefits of lower inventory carrying charges. Using a carrying cost of 25 percent results in $150,000 in lower carrying charges each year, identified here as part of the administrative expenses. Read More
