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...
