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 production toyota  questions faced when designing lean production processes: RapidResponse's pegging capability provides complete visibility into which components are used for each order. Linking component usage to orders provides the point-of-use information for each component, which can be used to organize work areas Kanban sizes are calculated as simple expressions based on projected component requirements Exception monitoring. RapidResponse's flexibility and event-based triggers makes it an ideal platform to calculate Read More

Lean Knowledge Work
The Toyota production system has been on one of the most important schools of thought in operations, and has spawned several spin-offs. All these approaches are

Between Toyota and Sony: Japanese Software in the US Market
Asprova, Japanese developer of production scheduler/advanced planning and scheduling (APS) solutions, is eager to break into the US market. The company is

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 production toyota  commonly referred to as lean manufacturing today is an extension of the proverbial Toyota Production System ( TPS ), which was originated by Taiichi Ohno and first saw use in the 1950s. The conditions that led to its development stemmed from the aftermath of World War II, when Japanese automotive manufacturers faced serious competition from American counterparts. At this time, Japanese manufacturers not only were rebuilding their war torn factories, but also were facing a serious shortage of raw Read More

Production Intelligence--Improving Production by Filling a Traditional Gap
Enterprises understand the value of integration. One area that has been ignored is the plant. Plant systems and corporate systems must be complementary and

lean production toyota  Intelligence--Improving Production by Filling a Traditional Gap Introduction In most plants, a systems gap exists between the corporate systems (ERP, SCM, CRMS, etc.) and the plant systems (MES, LIMS, maintenance, etc.) As with any integration gap, the value of both sets of systems cannot be fully leveraged without integration. We are seeing a relatively new set of applications aimed at both integrating the plant and corporate systems plus providing an integrated view not available from either Read More

lean production toyota  Lean Practices and ERP Many organizations are undertaking some form of lean initiative, but if one were to ask one hundred different people, one would probably different explanations from each person. With a variety of methods, techniques, and terms bandied about, many are forced to use the same definition that the late Justice Potter Stewart used for pornography: “I know it when I see it.” Shop floor practices that move inventory to the point of consumption, like kanban, are also Read More

lean production toyota  of ERP Support for Lean Certain lean initiatives can be hugely strengthened with a synergistic enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation—and vice versa. 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. Read More

lean production toyota  Lean Manufacturing Principles in an A&D Environment Lean manufacturing is a management philosophy, enabled and supported by various techniques, to eliminate non-value adding activity. However, aerospace and defense (A&D) government regulations impose very different business practices from those followed in the commercial sector. Can lean manufacturing principles really work in A&D? The answer: it depends on the architecture of the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Read More

lean production toyota  by the Numbers Getting lean is not a simple task; it requires an aggressive, iterative approach to examine complex tradeoffs. And given the number of variables that characterize a distribution center (DC) and its constituent stock keeping units (SKUs), performing this type of analysis without using the right tools can be daunting—if not impossible. Find out how a tool-based approach can make getting lean easier. Read More
