flow diagram example  MRP Part 1: Tutorial Flow Manufacturing The lean manufacturing support philosophy has recently received increased interest, potentially allowing it to break like a huge wave across industry. The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems of the 1990s have been burdened with the liability of carrying on some well-publicized Material Requirements Planning (MRP) problems like complex bills of material (BOMs), inefficient workflows and unnecessary transactions, activities, and data collections. While several Read More...

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

Process Flow for Developing an In-house SCM Risk Assessment Program The diagram below illustrates the steps that an organization could follow to implement their in-house SCM risk management program. A Final Thought My research into this topic made me think SCM risk management was similar to an insurance program to protect against unseen forces. I hope you’ll never be in the position of having to put these steps into practise. In this part of the early twenty first century it seems Read More...
The Steel Manufacturing Industry: What Use Is an ERP System, Anyway?
TEC regularly works with companies to identify the right software vendors for their industry and particular needs. I’m going to provide you with information

flow diagram 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 application provides a rough-cut planning from the demand 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

Ptak is the VP & Global Industry Executive but the actual relevant product development is still driven by the SCM product pillar under Patrick Quirk. He is one of the other key manufacturing personnel that PeopleSoft has added in the last few years, prior to the J.D Edwards acquisition. The whole move to lean Read More...
The Why of Data Collection
Data collection systems work; however, they require a investment in technology. Before the investment can be justified, we need to understand why a data

flow diagram example  such as automated scales, flow meters, case counters, etc. When deciding to invest in data collection, the first question to ask is Why? Our objective is never just data collection , but are rather some business objectives like lower inventory, higher quality, better customer service, or more accurate costing. We can often meet these objectives without a data collection system. For example, we can have people writing data on clipboards and later keying it in. Our data collection question is Will the Read More...

flow diagram example  (SAN) permits an uninterrupted flow of data all the time. 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. Read More...

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

flow diagram example  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...
