rate or drumbeat ),  heijunka (load leveling and line balancing ), and manufacturing process redesign to make it more agile (i.e., the ability to quickly change between product runs and reduce setups). In such a setup, a  Visual Production Control (VPC)  that uses common sense visual signals (i.e.,  Kanbans  or supermarkets) to initiate (trigger) a new action (e.g., replenish an empty container or bin) should suffice, right? Not really. Even though lean manufacturing initiatives are putting the

also known as the Heijunka Scheduling Rule . Thus, APS can help lean by reducing non-value-add activities via smart sequencing of dependent changeover times to reduce waiting (queue) time. APS also provides a tool to manage smaller batches in an efficient way, for example sequencing them to minimize setup time. This means that it is possible to configure an ERP system to generate orders on an MTO basis (rather than on a “to stock” basis with large quantities) and let the scheduling system dynamically

Enterprise Resource Planning Vendors Address Lean Manufacturing
Intentia, Fujitsu Glovia, QAD, and SSA Global's solutions supporting lean manufacturing are examined. Which areas the extended enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors excel in depends on their original ERP system's suitability for repetitive versus to-order environments.

HEIJUNKA: volume and mix leveling, heijunka range calculations to schedule the finishing cell or final assembly line (i.e., the sequence and quantity of parts), and demand calculation algorithms, which are used to handle variability so as to configure product for different product lines. For demand calculations, demand master data identify the critical details of demand determination, such as the average daily demand and the template used for determining demand (i.e., the average over n days and the average over x

To that end, APS improves flexibility through “what if” scenario planning (to allow tradeoffs between company-wide metrics/KPIs), and quick re-scheduling models to accommodate unplanned events like breakdowns, manufacturing nonconformance runs (rejects), engineering change orders (ECO’s), and rush orders.

I recently attended PowerPlex 2013 , Plex Systems’ 12th annual user conference, where the company’s management talked about Plex’s customer focus and cloud capabilities. In a series of two blog posts, I’ll provide a backgrounder on the company and then take a deeper look into Plex’s current offerings and position in the marketplace. To understand Plex Systems ’ current state of affairs one must understand the company’s history. About

Lean and World Class Manufacturing and the Information Technology Dilemma—The Loss of Corporate Consciousness
Companies relying on manual implementation and support for lean and world class methodologies risk losing corporate consciousness. Avoid the pitfalls of lost information and flexibility; place value on performance gaps and create matrixes of tools and applications to prioritize issues.

HEIJUNKA: also useful for basic heijunka (mixed model) load balancing to smooth the demand for a given period over constrained resources and materials. A relatively simple spreadsheet can easily be created to demonstrate how this works. Figure 1 illustrates the dynamic of increasing shifts in demand combined with higher levels of product variation, in design and mix, create higher risk. Figure 1. The Complexity Continuum When Is There a High Risk of a Loss of Consciousness? Problems can and do arise in the

Manual versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing
All good lean systems have both physical systems in the plant and near real time information technology backbones that centralize data. The primary advantage of enterprise systems is that they can handle considerably more information than can be accommodated manually.

HEIJUNKA: as kanban management and heijunka calculations (see Lean and World Class Manufacturing and the Information Technology Dilemma—The Loss of Corporate Consciousness ). It is interesting to note, however, that even in such cases, material requirements planning (MRP) systems still can be used to hold core master data on items and bills of material (BOM), though these records have to be tweaked with an eye toward lead time-oriented information. Some lean purists go even further, and believe that lean manufact

Simplify your life with 10 critical questions to ask a manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendor. Acquire IT reports related to ERP. Manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) software vendors range from global giants offering legacy systems to smaller companies offering only point solutions. With so many solution providers to choose from, how can an organization make an intelligent decision on who to trust with this mission-critical system? Learn 10 critical questions to ask when choosing a manufacturing ERP solution for your company.

HEIJUNKA: point of origination? Is heijunka (demand leveling) available? And are these functions supported across the supply chain - with customers and suppliers? 9. How does the detailed data about production, scrap, downtime, labor and quality inspections get into the system? These are the most important factors affecting profitability and success at a manufacturer - this is what manufacturing is all about. If this data is captured and validated as the activities are occurring, virtually everyone in the
