An equipment company produced a line of medical devices that required a manually maintained master schedule to reflect the planner's decision-making logic about production constraints. The medical devices required an expensive outside operation for sterilizing a batch of multiple end-items. The scheduling considerations included a cost-benefit analysis about amortizing the fixed fee for sterilization over the largest possible batch Read More...

Most of the published literature provides few prescriptions about actual software functionality to support SCM for lean manufacturing. In addition, the lean enthusiasts emphasize new conceptual models and a new vocabulary which contributes a sense of mystique for those only familiar with the traditional SCM approaches. This book covers the SCM software Read More...

To refresh our memory, supply chain planning (SCP) applications are designed to provide forward-looking predictions of events with probabilities for the future (as almost no company knows enough about any business initiative to proceeds with 100 percent certainty), which can encompass medium and long-term time horizons. Given the fact that decisions should be based on information, an SCP application suite sits Read More...
