Lean Manufacturing: Reaping the Rewards of Lean through Response Management
For years, manufacturers have been driven by sales forecasts and the need to maximize production efficiency at every level of operation. But in order to be

lean material  roadmap for creating a lean enterprise. Map out the end-to-end process that takes your product from raw material to the customer. This includes value-adding steps and nonvalue-adding steps. Review your map and look for areas where you can flow work from one processing step to the next, without the need for any inventory between. This is also referred to as single piece flow. If you can‘t flow from one process to the next then you need to set up a pull system. We refer to these areas as supermarkets. Read More...

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

lean material  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 behavior of kanban tickets. A kanban ticket for Read More...
Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints
The theory of constraints (TOC) is similar to, yet different from, the lean philosophy. TOC focuses on optimizing production through critical bottlenecks in

lean material  of both TOC and lean manufacturing principles, and, for some companies, is easier and quicker to deploy. It was introduced a few years back by the former Lilly Software (a pioneer in concurrently addressing both material and capacity constraints), and is still promoted by Infor . With SMP, users do not need to map the whole value stream to significantly reduce WIP and lead time, but they do need to simply stop releasing work to the plant floor until the right time. Under traditional push-style Read More...
Streamlining for Success: The Lean Supply Chain
When flexibility and speed are requisites for success, it’s the lean organization that leads the race. World-class manufacturing organizations know the value of

lean material  and Internet visualization facilitate lean by making accurate inventory replenishment information immediately visible, thereby reducing information lead-time and eliminating waste in the flow of material from suppliers to customers. The QAD Lean Manufacturing module allows suppliers to manage fluctuating customer demand and complex variation in product mix, facilitates supplier collaboration, and minimizes inventory carrying costs. JIT Sequencing The Just-In-Time Sequencing module allows for components Read More...
How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing
Lean manufacturing is a transformational exercise that requires an organization to cast aside long-held beliefs and business processes. The five main steps to

lean material  to make its organization lean is to define value from the perspective of the customer, whether the end customer or an intermediate customer. This value must be identified and expressed in terms of how the specific product meets the customer's need, at a specific price and at a specific time. To do that, one has to be able to evaluate performance in terms of customers, products, profitability analyses, and so on, by measuring well thought-out key performance indicators (KPIs), such as customer sales, Read More...
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

lean material  and overhead allocations. Most lean scenarios focus on direct material costs so the limitation is not an issue. However, some lean scenarios require value-added costs to support calculation of a manufactured item's cost and suggested sales price. Autodeduction of these value-added costs supports an order-based costing approach for manufacturing kanbans. In this case, routing data must be used to support the costing purposes. Chapter 5 explains several work cell considerations, including the use of Read More...
