Implementing Kanban Alternatives in Lean Manufacturing
Kanban—the Japanese term for physical or visual signs that trigger replenishment, which can be a useful part of lean manufacturing—is not a good fit in some situations. Alternatives to kanban can also eliminate waste in lean production by addressing inventory, materials, and replenishment process needs. Learn more on how you can find alternatives to kanban to make your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system “leaner.”

Enterprise Resource Planning Vendors Address Lean Manufacturing
Intentia, Fujitsu Glovia, QAD, and SSA Global's solutions supporting lean manufacturing are examined. Which areas the extended enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors excel in depends on their original ERP system's suitability for repetitive versus to-order environments.

KANBAN: first introduced support for kanban around ten years ago, while its theory of constraints (TOC)-based solution goes back fifteen years, and support for total productive maintenance (TPM) was first delivered approximately seven years ago. Intentia recognizes that one solution does not always fit all environments. For instance, while a lean solution using kanban is applicable in many situations, there are environments where TOC or material requirements planning (MRP) are more appropriate. In fact, some of

Managing Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009
A supply chain management system (SCM) is a critical success factor for implementing lean manufacturing. The SCM system helps define product structure, costing information, financial information and reports and is a useful tool in the decision-making process.

KANBAN: board. However, the manual kanban systems have their own difficulties such as lost cards and lack of information integration and visibility. Most of the published literature provides few prescriptions about actual software functionality to support SCM for lean manufacturing. In addition, the lean enthusiasts emphasize new conceptual models and a new vocabulary which contributes a sense of mystique for those only familiar with the traditional SCM approaches. This book covers the SCM software functionality

Tackling the International Supply Chain
Effective supply chain management is vital for global manufacturers' and retailers' success. If TradeBeam GTM blueprint proves successful, the time and money spent managing suppliers to ensure inventory levels are maintained will be optimized

KANBAN: processes, such as electronic kanban (to replenish lot size) quantities, since it gives virtually real-time information to suppliers, so that they can deliver as soon as the inventory is consumed instead of shipping against a forecast. In other words, the system provides explicit feedback to the supplier on when and how much inventory to send. One should note that supplier management inefficiencies directly affect tier one manufacturers bottom lines because purchased parts are possibly the biggest cost

Industrial & Financial Systems, IFS AB: Thriving on Product Flexibility and Incremental Deployability
IFS was one of the first ERP vendors to incorporate concepts of component technology and a high-level of integration with both its own and other vendors' components, all providing for flexibility, modularity and ongoing post-implementation system agility and incremental deployment. The Company supports most of the IT industry-accepted middleware standards and is well poised for future technological developments and requirements.

KANBAN: Japan to jointly develop kanban functionality for IFS manufacturing applications.

New Approaches to Software Pricing
Hearing the complaints of dissatisfied customers, some vendors are developing customer-centric contracts. HarrisData has even gone so far as to draft a Bill of Rights for customers. How well do these pledges measure up?

KANBAN: check forecasted consumption or kanban usage, and better plan supply orders. The supplier can validate contract pricing and terms, and can even place suggested purchase orders on the customer s behalf, enabling the customer to focus on getting quality supplies at the right time and the right price, skipping time-consuming paperwork. HarrisData SRM solution is also designed to be self-branded. When a supplier visits the user enterprise s site, they are greeted with the user company s branding (e.g., the

Integrating Lean Practices and ERP
Many organizations are undertaking some form of lean initiative, but if one were to ask one hundred different people, one would probably different explanations from each person. With a variety of methods, techniques, and terms bandied about, many are forced to use the same definition that the late Justice Potter Stewart used for pornography: “I know it when I see it.” Shop floor practices that move inventory to the point of consumption, like kanban, are also associated with lean. But what really is lean? And does it go beyond the shop floor to impacts all areas of the business?
