lean environment  the transition to a Lean manufacturing environment is a major change for many reasons. To improve customer order delivery times, many companies are moving to a make-to-order or an assemble-to-order environment, often causing bills of material to be flattened and work processes to be postponed until the customer order is received. Since the orders are now being pulled from the customer, work cell teams responsible for these final processes may be free from backlog tasks and actually be waiting for Read More...

Lean Manufacturing: A Primer
Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical

lean environment  increased interest in the lean manufacturing support philosophy. To understand this trend, one need look no further than the enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems of the 1990s, which, unfortunately, are cognitive (i.e., sending well-devised plans of mice and men , which, without feedback from the real-world would often go astray ) rather than reflexive in nature. In addition, there is a host of other well-publicized MRP-related problems, such as complex bills of material (BOMs), inefficient Read More...
