Quick Response Manufacturing: ERP and Value Chain Acceleration


Whatever the reasons for pursuing a lead-time reduction strategy, time compression across all company processes is critical to growth, and in some cases means survival for today's manufacturers. Learn about the complementary nature of enterprise resource planning (ERP), value chain exceleration, and quick response manufacturing (QRM).

It simplifies operations and reduces paperwork by eliminating work orders, reducing items and levels in BOM's, and incorporating high-level MRP planning on a daily flow basis at a component level rather than at a work order level. Blanket purchase orders, vendor schedules and delivery synchronization ensure the availability of materials to support the flow rate. Materials are received and delivered directly to point-of-use, such as an assembly line where usage Read More

Procurement: A Strategic Lever for Bottom-line Improvement


Companies are successfully realizing benefits from their procurement initiatives, and viewing procurement as an integral part of their overall corporate strategy. They no longer perceive procurement as a cost center, but rather as a strategic lever for improving profits or funding new initiatives. Procurement opportunities are significant—translating directly, with no dilution, into measurable, hard dollar profit increases.

American Car Makers and Bad Management


In the news, and in a few publications, the Detroit (US) car makers have been blamed for "bad management." I would like to clarify that definition and ask your opinion. But first, my thoughts… An obligation of a business is to respond to customer demands. American customers demanded large SUVs, and gadgets for it that made the SUV a home away from home. What drove SUV sales is the

jit introduction  While just in time (JIT) and lean manufacturing is the norm, perhaps assembly lines are too much geared to mass production of a single vehicle model—a model that quickly fell out of popularity. Undo the virtual lockdown on credit. Loosen up the ability to purchase a vehicle, as opposed to leasing one. The tight credit squeeze by banks is hurting the domestic car industry. Giving cash to the American Big three is not going to increase car sales. Consumers are not going to lose their uncertainties. What Read More

Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations


While lean/flow leverages practices to stay ahead of actual demand, traditional approaches better coordinate secondary, back-office systems like accounting and HR. Moreover, flow should be a company-wide strategy that impacts more than manufacturing.

jit introduction  also caters to both JIT that is used for build-to-order or final assembly manufacturing, and to lean manufacturing, which is suitable for build-to-demand pull for finished and component items. Namely, most companies will still use MRP to ascertain longer-term dependent demand (i.e., based on forecasts), but replenishment will be based on independent demand (i.e., actual customer orders), with closely managed inventory buffers. Customer demand cannot be predicted months ahead, since nothing is that Read More
