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.
that can generate cash flow and reduce costs on the manufacturing floor. 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? Focus on Faster and Better .

Unfortunately, with changes to the SAN fabric—when a server comes online, or when storage ports are added—the attendant tape backups might cause a serious lapse in the flow of data. However, an interoperable solution can keep registered state change notifications (RSCNs) from making your SAN go haywire.

Demand-driven Planning in Manufacturing
Cover-time planning (CTP) is a
to schedule and manage flow orders for products within product families, with or without using MRP. Again, the idea is for products to arrive exactly when they are needed, in the mix and quantities that are required. Production only begins immediately after a customer order is confirmed, without having to run MRP, or create and release a work order. Materials are consumed from point-of-use locations or raw-in-process (RIP) locations, whereby both internal and external material suppliers receive
