Moving Beyond Lean Manufacturing to a Lean Supply Chain
Most lean manufacturing deployments target production operations, but can also be extended to other supply chain processes. To realize the multiplicative

Traditional manual pull systems fall short when applied to a networked supply chain model for the following reasons: Lack of visibility across the networked supply chain No standard traceable collaboration medium Manual systems are slower by nature, and more error prone Manual approaches struggle with demand variability or spikes in demand As companies deploy lean strategies in the 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 model  This is because, though lean does not necessarily set out to be mean in terms of relentless cost cutting, the approach of maximizing customer value and eliminating hidden waste (i.e., any activity that does not add value to the goods or service in the eyes of the consumer) inevitably leads to the removal of unnecessary operating costs (including some unneeded jobs). There are seven typical categories of hidden muda or waste, as follows. Overproduction . Overproduction consists of making either unneeded, Read More

This is accomplished by integrating dozens of variables to generate inventory management solutions down to the stock-keeping unit (SKU) level. In addition to deriving operational recommendations, i-Lean lays out the cost components of each solution. The application establishes the foundation for a warehouse management system implementation, and supports long-term inventory management maintenance Read More
Front-office Lean-Taking Lean Manufacturing Beyond the Shop Floor
Lean manufacturing practices are employed to some degree on almost every manufacturing floor, but many companies aren't realizing the real benefits of lean by

lean model  pitfall of following a lean front office strategy is that a small company with a simple business model may adopt too rigorous a lean program, which would have the effect of bogging down their operations rather than eliminating waste. Formal lean programs run by certified professionals are fine for some organizations, while others can benefit most from adopting one or two practices to eliminate waste where it exists in its most discrete form. Remember: lean consists of nothing more than identifying waste Read More

lean model  Model Quality Testing With 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) models taking on a broader and more significant role in the development of new products, CAD files must flow smoothly into downstream applications. Sometimes, however, errors do occur. An off-the-shelf software tool can detect problems in the design stage so they aren’t discovered at a crucial moment in the manufacturing process, when it may be costly—or even too late—to correct them.
