It is a pull system where workstations signal with a card or something similar when parts are to be withdrawn from feeding operations or suppliers.) For more detail on JIT and lean manufacturing and on their impact on ERP, see Trends Affecting Manufacturers and ERP . However, flow manufacturing leverages some additional techniques helping manufacturers create any product on any given day and Read More

What Can Manufacturers Do in a Tough Economy? - Part II
Part I of this blog series outlined the first three suggested

This requires close coordination between manufacturing, the WMS to track and deliver materials/components to the production line, and the TMS to economically schedule the inbound transportation. RedPrairie's TMS [ evaluate this product ], WMS [ evaluate this product ],  Build-to-Order , and Sequence Delivery systems handle all of this for their customers.

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

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

More specifically as discussed in previous sections, MRP II is a push-type system that uses demand forecasts to generate production plans, while JIT is a pull-type system that ideally depends on customer demand to trigger production. Generally speaking, MRP II leads to higher inventory costs, but higher levels of customer service, while JIT seeks to minimize the cost of 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

Traditionally, manufacturers have used the concept of economic order quantity (EOQ), which is also known as economic lot size or minimum cost order quantity, to determine their optimal manufacturing batch and lot sizes or quantities of purchased materials. EOQ is a type of fixed order quantity model that determines the amount of an item to be purchased or manufactured at one time, with the intent of minimizing the combined costs of acquiring and carrying Read More

Discrete ERP 101
Puzzled by process? Dazed by discrete?First, let’s understand who should use a discrete ERP application.Discrete manufacturers assemble products from

See TEC’s Discrete ERP Evaluation Center for more on the business benefits of discrete ERP applications. If you are a discrete manufacturer burdened with a process ERP solution, you will be unable to properly allocate items to specific orders. Traceability thus becomes a major headache. Furthermore, the overriding consideration for process manufacturers is quality . For discrete manufacturers, it’s quantity (with, Read More
