Lean Tools and Practices that Eliminate Manufacturing Waste
A number of lean manufacturing tools and practices have long been used to reduce manufacturing waste. These include the five S's, visual controls, standardized

jit pull  items. Therefore, in a JIT sequence, the statement of demand expresses the exact configuration of the needed item. For example a requirement for a seat would be to deliver tan, leather, left front seat, with heater and electronic motor lumbar support mechanism, by 14:15 for Vehicle Number 12345 . Activity-based Costing Another waste reduction practice is the allocation of overhead costs on a more realistic basis than direct labor or machine hours. The tool that achieves this is an activity-based cost ( Read More...

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. To illustrate the differences between these three methods, Mrs. Lopker, who was Read More...

Buyers negotiate fixed-price repetitive-supply contracts that are fulfilled and paid for over the life of the contract through periodic shipments timed to meet the actual need for goods. Price stability makes such hedging unnecessary, and deflation makes it highly unprofitable. But buyers will be under even greater pressure to keep inventories low, since the value of Read More...
