Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations
While lean/flow leverages practices to stay ahead of actual demand, traditional approaches better coordinate secondary, back-office systems like accounting and

Manufacturers must also be fully aware of whether their systems use actual demand, sales forecasts, or a combination of the two in order to populate their MPS. Also, manufacturers need to do some preliminary work before even thinking about deploying flow manufacturing software, such as adapting their plants to a flow production model. In other words, they will have to operate in work cells that build families of products (rather than Read More...

The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena
Lean principles are difficult to employ in complex environments, but materials requirement planning has well-known limitations. The theory of constraints, which

The TOC method is particularly applicable to the custom-built and custom-configured manufacturing environments often found in the industrial and commercial equipment sector, because their long lead times and high precision processes Read More...
Lean Tools and Practices that Eliminate Manufacturing Waste
A number of lean manufacturing tools and practices have long been used to reduce manufacturing waste. These include the five S's, visual controls, standardized

lean production jit  the heartbeat of any lean production system. As the pacemaker of a lean system, takt time is essential to the smooth flow of work through production cells, and is a key factor in planning and scheduling work. It is computed as the available production time per day divided by the rate of daily customer demand. For example, if one assumes demand is 10,000 units per month, or 500 units per day, and planned available capacity is 420 minutes per day, the takt time would then equal 420 minutes per day Read More...

Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial
Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the

lean production jit  of the aspects of lean manufacturing. For example, a mathematical model corresponds daily production with actual demand, defines line designs to allow materials to flow at a steady rate to meet that demand, and uses proper sequencing to improve throughput. The idea is to synchronize product assembly to make each like product unit at a consistent rate and meet the particular day's demand. The takt time (i.e., the available production time divided by the rate of customer demand) and total product cycle Read More...
