flow digrams  Cash Flow in Focus While Driving Business Performance One of the most basic business axioms, held dear by all firms but especially small companies, is that cash flow is king. Customer payments are essential for fueling all other business activity, from staff salaries, to raw materials, to rent. Growing firms need to be especially attentive to cash flow because sales increases typically require new investments associated with product or service production before payments are received.

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...

The idea behind RIR is to promptly reduce a ToolsGroup customer's working capital needs and thus ease the impact of the credit crunch. In this era of tight credit and higher cost of capital, cash is king. According Read More...

It is still challenging or even unsuitable to deploy in a jobbing shop that does highly configure-to-order (CTO) or engineer-to-order (ETO) products having high setup times and long lead times, although it has been occasionally deployed there with almost as much success as within high-volume, more repetitive make-to-demand environments. The fact is that 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

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...
Demand-driven Planning in Manufacturing
Cover-time planning (CTP) is a

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 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 digrams  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...

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...
