TEC Lean and Green Manufacturing Buyer’s Guide
While the need for sustainable development is affecting how organizations do business, the idea of environmental and corporate responsibility as value drivers

production. Single-digit Setup Since lean manufacturing requires manufacturers to produce to customer demand only, it requires them to make products in ever smaller batches. This is opposed to the traditional long runs of equipment and the fallacy that it is more efficient to run a big, EOQ-based batch rather to run several shorter ones that include changeovers. Yet, long runs mean large inventories, which in turn tie up large sums of money and keep customers waiting longer for finished goods and

In other cases, the two efforts should be viewed as separate initiatives. But it doesn’t depend on “what you want”: specific lean initiatives will fail if specific ERP aspects are neglected. However, other lean initiatives and ERP functionality have little in common.
