The Transformation of the Lean Enterprise
Over the past 30–40 years, manufacturers have made dramatic leaps in improving their businesses by using lean manufacturing and Six Sigma techniques. The systems these businesses use, however, have changed relatively little in comparison. The ERP systems manufacturing companies rely on to run their business are greatly at odds with the strategy and processes lean manufacturers use to maintain their competitive advantage.

Integrated Lean Giving ERP the Flexibility to Push and Pull
Current manufacturing practices have been made cumbersome by the imposition of data recording activities required by manufacturing systems through the release, issuing, and expediting of the infamous work order. An integrated lean system utilizes full containers to signal the completion of product and backflushes the component material within the ERP system. Additionally, the integrated lean system (pull) can work simultaneously and in harmony with your MRP planning (push) to schedule your shop floor bottlenecks so that the bottleneck becomes the heartbeat (pull) for the remainder of the plant. Although originally scheduled, the bottleneck may use the integrated lean backflush routines as well! This white paper defines the integrated lean environment.

Mobile Commerce: The Path to Customer Engagement
More personal, portable, and in many cases more powerful than any computing device in the past, mobile phones deliver new opportunities for enterprises to establish, nurture, and maintain relationships with customers. But unlike most advances in which enterprise use leads consumer use, the mobile phone revolution has developed in the opposite way: customers are already comfortable with the technology and expect enterprises to allow the kind of interactions they want. This white paper playbook gives tips for how enterprises can embark on this new path to customer engagement and take advantage of the benefits offered by implementing mobile commerce services.
