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

It is a pull system where workstations signal with a card or something similar when parts are to be withdrawn from feeding operations or suppliers.)

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

jit scheduling  some nuggets of pseudo JIT ways of accommodating mass customization. Just the support for kanbans or VMI to push inventory elsewhere (e.g., suppliers) rather than to reduce it across the supply chain is a far cry from a true support for lean or flow manufacturing. On the other hand, MRP should not be discounted as useless just like that, since it will often have an important purpose that could and should be used together with lean or flow practices (i.e., MRP will typically handle planning, while lean Read More...

Supporting kanbans or vendor managed inventory (VMI) to push inventory elsewhere (e.g., suppliers) rather than to reduce stock across the entire supply chain is a far cry from a truly supported lean or demand-driven manufacturing. On the other hand, MRP should not be discounted as useless just like that, since it will often have an important purpose that could and should be used together with lean or demand-driven practices.

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

jit scheduling  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...
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

jit scheduling  overtime. (Note, however, that JIT can be applied to process manufacturing as well.) 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...
