Lean Manufacturing: Part Two


Part One of the "Lean Manufacturing" series looked at manufacturing wastes, lean principles, and the benefits of lean manufacturing. Here, in Part Two, you'll be taken through the action stage of lean practices: implementing lean. Understand the "5S" program toward implementing lean and begin laying the foundation of a discipline that is necessary for effective implementation of more complicated lean tools such as kanban.

10 Ways to Use ERP to Lean the Manufacturing Supply Chain


A lean supply chain is more than just those activities relating directly to supply chain management (SCM). Lean supply chain improvements require a commitment to finding the correct mix of efficiency and responsiveness. But the reward is great for manufacturers that do embark on the path to lean. Using the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) software can be your key to reaping the benefits of lean SCM. Learn how.
