A Primer on Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics AX
Lean manufacturing constructs have been incorporated into the Microsoft Dynamics AX package, enabling firms to support lean and traditional manufacturing

kanbans  such terminology as kanbans. Kanbans support coordination and execution in lean environments, and provide a logical starting point for further explanation. Containers provide the simplest conceptualization of a kanban, where each container has an identifier, and an empty container signals the need to replenish material for a specific item and quantity. Kanban Policies and Kanban Tickets Kanban policies and kanban tickets differentiate two key contexts for kanbans. Kanban policies govern creation and Read More...

Lean and World Class Manufacturing and the Information Technology Dilemma-The Loss of Corporate Consciousness
Companies relying on manual implementation and support for lean and world class methodologies risk losing corporate consciousness. Avoid the pitfalls of lost

kanbans  right quantity in the kanbans shows up as excessive inventory for oversized kanbans and premium freight for undersized kanbans. Additional indications that the sizing of resources is problematic are the presence of feast and famine cycles of layoffs and short shifts alternating with sudden expenditures of overtime. These are not indications that a lean and world class approach is bad, but rather that information is either not flowing, or the ability to do something about it (like resize kanbans) is too Read More...

A Primer on Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics AX: Case Studies
To enable organizations to support lean and traditional manufacturing practices in a single system, Microsoft Dynamics AX has incorporated lean manufacturing

kanbans  lean manufacturing environment employs kanbans for coordinating and executing material replenishment. The definition of kanban policies governs the creation and behavior of kanban tickets, as described in part one of this series (please see A Primer on Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics ). Case studies provide one approach for understanding how kanbans support variations in lean practices, including the case where a work cell has demands stemming from kanbans and production orders.

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

kanbans  new constructs such as kanbans needed to support lean manufacturing. These limitations have often necessitated the use of manual systems, such as physical containers or cards to represent kanbans and a manually maintained schedule 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 Read More...

Apriso Going (Intelligently) Leaner
Continuous improvement is one of the hallmarks in the pursuit of manufacturing excellence. To better support this strategy, Apriso, which was recently acquired

kanbans  challenge is that traditional Kanbans typically rely only on simple and basic measures (e.g., if a parts bin is empty, place an order). In contrast, Apriso’s smart-pull solution  leverages FlexNet ’s Manufacturing Process Intelligence (MPI) module to add intelligence to Kanban-driven pull processes by incorporating a broader scope of actual events or historical performance. For example, an electronic Kanban signal can now consider up-to-the-moment seasonal order fluctuations, supplier quality Read More...
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

kanbans  by the number of kanbans in the system. Over time and with process improvements, the quantity of components in the kanban bin can be reduced or resized dynamically, on-the-fly, as required. Pull systems and pull signals (i.e., any signal that indicates when to produce or transport items in a pull replenishment system) can be found in many operational departments. For example, in just-in-time (JIT) production control systems, a kanban card can be used as the pull signal to replenish parts for the using Read More...
