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

Kinaxis RapidResponse software also eliminates the time wasted waiting for answers from ERP systems, enabling users to respond very quickly to actual or potential change. RapidResponse‘s Internet solutions combine easy browser-based access with memoryresident data and analytics to support collaboration, what-if‘ simulations and real-time Read More

Sorting Through the ERP, Lean MFG, APS, and MES Clutter - Part 2
Part 1 of this blog series started with the fact that the ability to sense demand and become a demand-driven (responsive) business is more than just the catch

lean simulations  the so-called “runners” that lean manufacturing is well suited for comprise only about 6 percent of products and 50 percent of revenues . Ironically, these more customized products will likely have higher  profit margins  than the runners and they may contribute to more than half of the company’s revenue and profit. If a company has dedicated resources to its runners, how does it cope with (likely profitable) surges in demand for repeaters and strangers? Dedicated cell systems can be inefficient Read More
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

lean simulations  assembly manufacturing, and to lean manufacturing, which is suitable for build-to-demand pull for finished and component items. Namely, most companies will still use MRP to ascertain longer-term dependent demand (i.e., based on forecasts), but replenishment will be based on independent demand (i.e., actual customer orders), with closely managed inventory buffers. Customer demand cannot be predicted months ahead, since nothing is that certain. Thus, many ERP systems are employing heuristics, algorithms, Read More
Managing Your Supply Chain Using Microsoft Axapta: A Book Excerpt Part Four: Guidelines and Case Studies
The lack of effective game plans is typically cited as a leading cause of poor system implementation. The following guidelines provide suggestions for improving

Executive Summary The ability to run the company from the top requires a Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) process that formulates an S&OP game plan for each saleable product. The nature of each game plan depends on several factors such as the visibility of demands, delivery lead-time, and a make-to-stock versus make-to-order production Read More

The Executive Dashboard module provides information on how much users spend where, by category, user, or by department. It pulls data from the sourcing events that users run, and it contains an on-line analytical processing (OLAP) tool that can report on data from the spend analysis database. While the users can use spend analysis as the first step to identify which categories to tackle, the module is more Read More

lean simulations  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
