(The Japanese word kanban, according to the APICS Dictionary , loosely translated, means card, billboard, or sign, and the term is often used synonymously for the specific JIT scheduling system developed and used by the Toyota Corporation in Japan. It is a pull system where workstations signal with a card or something similar when parts are to be withdrawn from feeding operations or suppliers.) Read More

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
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

It is interesting to note, however, that even in such cases, material requirements planning (MRP) systems still can be used to hold core master data on items and bills of material (BOM), though these records have to be tweaked with an eye toward lead time-oriented information. Some lean purists go even further, and Read More
