The lean philosophy has lately been getting an increased interest with the prospect of breaking like a huge wave across industry, given that the ERP systems of the 1990s have been burdened with a liability of carrying on some well-publicized MRP problems like complex BOMs; inefficient workflows; and unnecessary (i.e., no value-adding) transactions, Read More...

Spreadsheets and manual models are also useful for basic heijunka (mixed model) load balancing to smooth the demand for a given period over constrained resources and materials. A relatively simple spreadsheet can easily be created to demonstrate how this works. Figure 1 illustrates the dynamic of increasing shifts in demand combined with higher levels of product variation, in design and mix, create higher risk. Figure 1. The Read More...

Project Lifecycle Management Implies Long Term Value; Forget the Total Cost of Ownership Fuss
Understanding the nature and specifics of your product development life cycles, and especially new product design and initiation, can help you realize tangible

kanban design calculations  Lifecycle Management Implies Long Term Value; Forget the Total Cost of Ownership Fuss Background Product lifecycle management (PLM) software vendors are consistent in their belief that PLM applications software is well worth the investment because the life cycle costs of new product design and initiation (NPDI) are inherently weighted at the front end. Therefore the better job a company does in managing an efficient process toward NPDI will imply considerable cost savings over time. After a product Read More...
