Kawasaki Plant Switches to Electronic Kanban System Using LANSA's Technology
There was a new LANSA case study released yesterday that really grabbed my attention. LANSA is a Chicago-based developer and IT services provider that is

However, according to the manufacturer, this system has its own issues related to the cards themselves and employee discipline issues. So a decision was made to develop a new electronic Kanban system in-house using the existing IBM i LANSA ERP and its brand new development tool. As a result, a team of

The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena


Lean principles are difficult to employ in complex environments, but materials requirement planning has well-known limitations. The theory of constraints, which is complementary to lean manufacturing when it comes to low volumes and complex environments, may provide an answer.

jit kanban  environment, however, the kanban JIT approach no longer makes sense, since the product mix by product type, routings, and process times becomes widely divergent, causing the prediction of kanban sizes to be impractical and temporary, or wandering bottlenecks to appear all over the shop floor. Indeed, where the order mix changes or not all resources are dedicated to lean flow manufacturing, then kanban sizes must continuously be reevaluated. In these situations, a theory of constraints (TOC) approach is 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.

They have also been exploring the manufacturing community (i.e., consolidated visibility via a portal of inventory, production, Read More

Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial


Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the "quantity of one" (i.e., through the so-called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times in order to quickly fill customer orders.

Human Capital Supply Chains: Book Review


“Goods are uniform and people are unique.” Too obvious? Maybe, but with the success that supply chain management (SCM) has brought to manufacturers, it’s time to apply the same philosophy to human capital management (HCM).

SAP RFID Technology in the Automotive Industry


By using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, automotive companies can eliminate material shortfalls of containers, which lead to delivery delays and, in the case of time-sensitive shipments, cause production downtime. Manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, and freight forwarders can all benefit by reducing launch and assembly delays resulting from errors in part quantities, types, and locations for containers targeted for production lines.

Enhancing Lean Practices: Lean Adoption in the Industrial Machinery and Components Industry


Customer churn rates are higher than ever: although businesses say they are devoted to loyalty, their management systems and budgets do not support that claim. But in a landscape of similar products, cutting down on defection—or churn—is vital. There are in fact four steps to improving loyalty and retention which, if focused on the appropriate customers, will improve profitability.

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.

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.
