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.

information lean production  can handle considerably more information than any lean team could possibly accommodate manually. As a manufacturer''s lean program develops, software becomes imperative for successful program execution and management. Achieving the lean metric goals of the factory requires access to the right information at the right time, and enterprise systems typically provide much of this access. Additionally, it is not always practical to have teams in such close proximity that the visual handoff of information is Read More

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.

information lean production  an enterprise can incorporate information technology tools and lean and world class synergistically to help achieve and maintain market dominance. Lean and World Class Purists Tend to be Anti-Technology First we need to consider why there is tension and major differences of opinion between the IT, and lean and world class communities. Many lean purists hold that traditional IT applications like enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are, by definition, anti-lean, using push logic to populate the Read More

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 successful, manufacturers must look toward adopting a lean mentality. While lean techniques are more easily applied to some manufacturing styles than others, new software tools are now able to deliver the benefits of lean to both high-mix and low-volume operations.

information lean production  system processing the same information Information waiting to be acted on The secret of lean administration is the smooth flow of information. While lean manufacturing focuses on pulling product through production in a smooth flow, lean administration focuses on facilitating the flow of cash and product by flowing information to production and supply chain processes (e.g. planning). As soon as the product achieves any level of complexity, software is the only practical approach to managing this Read More

Production Management Research


Primarily due to rapid development of technology in the past thirty years, the market structure throughout the world has changed considerably. Local markets have become accessible to foreign manufacturers, who are able to perform well in their newly established territories in part due to their superior application of technology. In this light, most companies, including small and medium size, have embedded globalization in their expansion strategies, consistently seeking for new markets abroad. Consequently, local manufacturing companies are facing global competition, forcing them to adopt new concepts with respect to people, process and technologies. This document describes these approaches to production planning in detail as well outlines a software solution. The software solution (Production/3) combines both pull and push techniques and enables small to medium size organizations to fully automate their production system while retaining their investment in their legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
