Lean Tools and Practices that Eliminate Manufacturing Waste


A number of lean manufacturing tools and practices have long been used to reduce manufacturing waste. These include the five S's, visual controls, standardized work, mistake proofing, total productive maintenance, cellular manufacturing, single-digit setup, pull systems, sequencing, activity-based costing, and leveled production.

Pull systems, also known as kanban (coming from the Japanese words kan , which means card , and ban which means signal ), ensure that production and material requirements are based on actual customer demand rather than on inevitably inaccurate forecasting tools. A kanban signal, which can be a card, empty squares on the floor for bins, lights, or a computer software generated signal, triggers the movement, Read More

Supporting the Lean Value Stream with Technology Solutions


In today’s manufacturing environment, suppliers and manufacturers alike need to be highly selective when choosing an enterprise resource planning vendor to support their product-specific Lean value-streams. Technology is a key element in the success of Lean manufacturing, and should be selected with an eye to the entire value-stream. Infor examines all elements of a Lean value-stream in this must-read white paper.

The value stream needs to be defined for each specific manufactured product, whether mass-produced or make-to-order, prior to initiating production. As the value stream is defined, the supply chain is formed in such a way as to optimize the goals of the value stream. It is important for manufacturers to focus on the technology utilized to manage the supply chain to ensure complete support of the product value stream. The supply chain, which is comprised 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 is complementary to lean manufacturing when it comes to low volumes and complex environments, may provide an answer.

flow diagram symbol  Manufacturing Arena Limitations of Flow Manufacturing Just as manufacturing realities are continuously changing, so is lean thinking evolving. For example, traditionally, given competitive realities, it was almost exclusively automotive companies that deployed lean techniques such as kanban and sequencing. Today, however, there are some strong indications that only one in five companies using kanban are in the automotive industry. This is Part Six of a multi-part note. Customarily, lean endeavors lead Read More

Northeast Lantern Selects Rootstock Cloud ERP


Rootstock Software, provider of cloud manufacturing and supply chain applications on the Salesforce cloud platform, announced that Northeast Lantern (Exeter, New Hampshire) has selected Rootstock’s Cloud Manufacturing ERP to manage inventory and for visibility into production flow on the shop floor.

Having complete visibility of inventory and production is especially important as twenty percent of the high-quality solid brass and copper lanterns manufacturer’s output is Read More

UNIT4 Continues Enhancing Its Business Intelligence Stack—Analyst Roadshow


It has been a very interesting year for UNIT4, and the recent Analyst Roadshow event continued in the same light. TEC’s own Jorge García was there to capture all the details. Read the post and get his take on two major announcements from the vendor: the release of two new financial performance products for the North American market and the incorporation of a new in-memory analytics solution to the vendor’s analytics stack.

So, with the experience of challenging successfully powerful Read More
