flow chart textiles  into an Inventory Free Flow The convenience of a 24x7 intranet marketplace may be the answer to a company's end-of-lifecycle (EOL) inventory ills. Entering their products into an online auction portal, companies can sell off their excess inventory to the highest bidder, and buyers can purchase needed items for a steal. Is There a Smarter Way to Handle Excess Active and Obsolete Inventory? Given that one man's challenge often presents another man's opportunity, this brings us again to FreeFlow (

ERP for Mill-based and Material Converting Environments

The ERP for Mill-based and Material Converting Environments knowledge base focuses on a range of industrial activities that add value to raw materials by processing them into a form suitable for further manufacturing or for immediate end-use. These activities include traditional mills that turn grain into flour or extract sucrose from sugar cane; the spinning and weaving mills of the textiles and carpets sectors; the rolling plants of steel, aluminum, and other metals semi-fabricators; to the continuous outputs of paper and board mills.

How Manufacturers Use Technology to Help Weather the Economic Downturn


Too often, manufacturers implement technology for financial reporting, but overlook efficiencies that can generate cash flow and reduce costs on the shop floor. While credit won’t cure the credit crunch manufacturers are facing, automated processes that improve cash flow and keep lenders in the loop can go a long way in convincing lenders that their risk is low. Find out more about how automated systems can help you.

Accurate information that provides a business owner or manager the ability to make immediate decisions about his/her operation resulting in a boost to profitability is crucial during an economic downturn. If revenue is down and the market mood does not permit price increases, then profitability can only be realized by reducing costs. So you must ask yourself What prevents me from 100% efficiency?

ERP Systems and the ETO Manufacturing Market Part One: Event Summary


Users increasingly look for an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system designed for a specific business, since software that combines industry-specific functionality with the flexibility to accommodate each company's unique processes goes a long way toward improving the functional fit and the speed of implementation.

flow chart textiles  shortcomings, the lean , flow and demand-pull manufacturing philosophies have lately been getting an increased interest. Namely, the ERP systems of the 1990s have been burdened with the liability of carrying on some well-known manufacturing resource planning (MRP) problems like unnecessarily complex multilevel bills of material (BOMs), infinite capacity assumption, inefficient workflows and unnecessary (i.e., no value-adding) transactions, activities and data collections, which have not been amenable to Read More

Intelisis


Intelisis is a customizable business solution based on three main processes: ERP, supply chain management (SCM), and customer relationship management (CRM).

Is ROI King In Evaluating IT Investments? Part 2. Measuring the Impact of IT Investments


If the underlying business assumptions change, the cash flow projections may be critically flawed but the KPI’s can still be relatively reliable indicators of the impact of an IT project. In the long run, IT project KPIs may be the best indicators for IT managers to use in evaluating the results of their IT investments.

flow chart textiles  associated with the cash flow projections for an IT project. A company plans to install Radio Frequency/Bar Coding in its main warehouse. The project's cash flow projection is based on 1) enabling the company to carry lower inventory, thus reducing working capital and 2) reducing the staff required during peak shipping hours. For the IRR calculation the value of the lower working capital and the lower staff salaries are put in monetary terms. In other words, the projected dollar savings will be estimated Read More

PeopleSoft Gathers Manufacturing and SCM Wherewithal Part Three: The Manufacturing Industry


Even before the mega merger, PeopleSoft had already set it sights on a bigger manufacturing presence. PeopleSoft’s acquisition of mid-to-large ERP system developer J.D. Edwards this summer, and most recently demand flow and lean manufacturing software solution from JCIT, might indicate some deep though process rather than a number of impulse initiatives from the past.

CAD Model Quality Testing


With 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) models taking on a broader and more significant role in the development of new products, CAD files must flow smoothly into downstream applications. Sometimes, however, errors do occur. An off-the-shelf software tool can detect problems in the design stage so they aren’t discovered at a crucial moment in the manufacturing process, when it may be costly—or even too late—to correct them.

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.

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.

flow chart textiles  Lean manufacturing makes value flow through the factory, for instance, by trying to separate value streams so that they use dedicated resources sized to the same capacity (even if kanbans do not optimize the constraints). TOC takes this idea further by recognizing critical bottlenecks, which are the most overloaded resources that determine the maximum flow rate of production, and making value flow through these bottlenecks. It does this by allowing manufacturers to optimize production through their Read More

Managed File Transfer: The Need for a Strategic Approach


A secure and accurate flow of information in your supply chain operations has never been more critical—and complex. Digital transfer of unstructured information is a security risk, for both confidentiality and compliance, and traditional file transfer methods are now falling short. A managed file transfer solution combining hardware, software, and networks can meet your demands for visibility, security, and compliance.

Adaptive Discovery: Accelerating the Deployment and Adaptation of Automated Business Processes


To automate processes, business users and IT must work together as a team. The combination of technology infrastructure, process flow, and business requirements all needs to be translated into a process map to enable automation to occur. This process discovery effort, and adjusting the process map to manage change, is the most significant challenge of business process management (BPM) projects.
