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

information on lean tools  and activities, and record information for later analysis. On the other hand, rate-based scheduling applications can be used to stop production within manufacturing cells, allow workers to identify and correct defects, and then reschedule and restart production quickly to limit the impact on downstream processes. ERP systems can also allow manufacturers to backflush selectively for items and components affected by defects. Advantages of Electronic Kanbans Although it is often useful to start by using Read More...

A newly created kanban ticket represents an empty cont Read More...
Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints

information on lean tools  decisions based on throughput information rather than on cost information. To do that, one has to put new measures in place; the software can only help to reinforce these new procedures, disciplines, and measurements. Moreover, subordinating non-bottleneck feeder plants to the constraint plant occasionally requires equipment to stand idle, and only a stringent TOC education can help management accept this transformation. Some education is also needed for workers, who may sabotage the system for fear of jo Read More...
