Lean Manufacturing: Reaping the Rewards of Lean through Response Management
For years, manufacturers have been driven by sales forecasts and the need to maximize production efficiency at every level of operation. But in order to be

focus of lean manufacturing  Software and Lean The focus of lean manufacturing is execution'the actual transformation of materials into a product that is valued by customers. Lean thinking is now spreading into other areas of the enterprise. Order taking, product lifecycle management, production planning, payment, and other business processes are also candidates for re-design using the lean methodology. Companies can dramatically reduce non value-added administrative processes to achieve benefits similar to those achieved from the Read More...

Moving Beyond Lean Manufacturing to a Lean Supply Chain
Most lean manufacturing deployments target production operations, but can also be extended to other supply chain processes. To realize the multiplicative

focus of lean manufacturing  the supply chain network Focus on material flow across the entire supply chain Profitably building a lean supply chain network requires that manufacturing operations synchronize with customer demand and produce acceptable quality products as needed. A manufacturing strategy that is based on reduced variability, production to demand, waste elimination, and optimal cycle time will drive over all supply chain success. Manufacturers that cannot control variability will not be able to move toward lean demand 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

focus of lean manufacturing  is because a key focus of lean is to do only what is needed. It is the polar opposite of the traditional economies of scale, with their large batch approach and resulting long lead times and bloated inventory levels. Large lot sizes are a way of compensating for the fixed cost of a process, such as changeover or set-up costs, transaction-level costs (e.g., releasing orders, issuing parts, closing and reconciling orders, moving product batches into stocks, etc.), and other per order factors. With a large Read More...
Lean Manufacturing: A Primer
Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical

The primary focus here is on customer value-adding activities, while the elimination of waste ( muda in Japanese) and continuous improvement are consequences of this. What Constitutes Waste? Implementing a lean philosophy usually leads to cost reduction and employee empowerment, and many people tend to translate lean as mean . This is because, though lean does not necessarily set out to be mean in terms of relentless cost cutting, the approach of maximizing customer value and Read More...
TEC Lean and Green Manufacturing Buyer’s Guide
While the need for sustainable development is affecting how organizations do business, the idea of environmental and corporate responsibility as value drivers

focus of lean manufacturing  themselves. We placed the focus for the installation of Asprova on our disk production line. The reason for placing it there was that the equipment was fixed, and by limiting the line to reduce the number of items, we believed that we could also hold down the number of changing factors as well. In short, the flow of disk manufacturing is: cutting material > grooving > drilling holes > rounding > aperture polishing > inspection for a total of about 15 processes, including detailed items.

focus of lean manufacturing  of the Art in TCO: Managing the Total Cost of Ownership Total cost of ownership (TCO) is one of the most difficult metrics to benchmark. Even when using the clearest of metrics, companies often obtain inadequate results. Instead of thinking solely about how to calculate and reduce TCO, companies should think about how to manage TCO from a business perspective, in order to leverage solid, results-oriented decisions about IT solutions.
