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

lean products  chain Profitably building a lean supply chain network requires that manufacturing operations synchronize with customer demand and produce acceptable quality products as needed. A manufacturing strategy that is based on reduced variability, production to demand, waste elimination, and optimal cycle time will drive over all supply chain success. Manufacturers that cannot control variability will not be able to move toward lean demand driven replenishment strategies cost effectively. Where the Real Value Is Read More
Enhancing Lean Practices: Lean Adoption in the Industrial Machinery and Components Industry
Customer churn rates are higher than ever: although businesses say they are devoted to loyalty, their management systems and budgets do not support that claim

lean products  relatively recent adoption of Lean means consumer products manufacturers still face the challenges of adapting to cultural changes, with 91% citing this as their top challenge to Lean (Figure 1). Surprisingly though only 34% report that getting top management engaged as an issue, versus 42% of companies across industry, perhaps an indication that the blush has not yet faded from the early excitement generated by the possibilities available from Leaning out processes and inventory. Yet, interestingly eno Read More
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

A lean organization can make twice as much product with twice the quality, at half the cost, with half the labor and space, and with a fraction of the normal work-in-process inventory. Lean management is about operating the most efficient and effective organization possible, with the least cost and zero waste, while meeting cus Read More
Managing Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009
A supply chain management system (SCM) is a critical success factor for implementing lean manufacturing. The SCM system helps define product structure, costing

In contrast, the lean approaches do not generally apply to products with the opposite characteristics, such as low certainty of demand, erratic demand patterns, low usage rates, long lead time components, and dynamically changing product structures. The traditional SCM approaches tend to work better for products with these opposite characteristics. Vendor-managed inventory may also be considered for low-cost high-usage components such as nuts and bolts. Lean manufacturing approaches have bee Read More
