How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing
Lean manufacturing is a transformational exercise that requires an organization to cast aside long-held beliefs and business processes. The five main steps to

manufacturing backflushing  pull signals should initiate manufacturing and movement of material. This might necessitate support for various types of pull signals or kanbans (e.g., printed-out cards or electronic signals in case of using computers). Production of product can consequently be order-less, with backflushing to report automatic material consumption of components. This should result in major reductions in work-in-process (WIP) and production cycle times. The number of cards to print and use for each item and receiving Read More...

Manual versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing
All good lean systems have both physical systems in the plant and near real time information technology backbones that centralize data. The primary advantage of

To apply lean principles to these new environments presents manufacturers with special challenges that the right ERP system can help overcome, such as the increased difficulty of calculating heijunka schedules, more frequent adjustment of kanban sizes, and increasingly smaller leveling periods . In these instances, the solution must have a planning system that can smooth demand for items with highly variable demand, and act as a shock absorber to Read More...

It takes into account, and goes beyond, principles that have been used in many time-compression projects, such as small lot sizes, product-oriented layout with local control, JIT and Kanban. It simplifies operations and reduces paperwork by eliminating work orders, reducing items and levels in BOM's, and incorporating high-level MRP planning on a daily flow basis at a component level rather than at a work order level. Blanket purchase orders, vendor Read More...

Lean Manufacturing: A Primer
Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical

To understand this trend, one need look no further than the enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems of the 1990s, which, unfortunately, are cognitive (i.e., sending well-devised plans of mice and men , which, without feedback from the real-world would often go astray ) rather than reflexive in nature. In addition, there is a host of other well-publicized MRP-related problems, such as complex bills of material (BOMs), inefficient workflows, transa Read More...

Process Manufacturing: Industry Specific Requirements Part Three: Textiles
As with any manufacturing operation, process manufacturing has special system requirements such as formulas, unit of measure conversions, and packaging recipes.

manufacturing backflushing  Three: Textiles Introduction Traditionally, manufacturing is categorized by two methods: process and discrete. Many differences exist, but most can be grouped into two areas: those derived from material issues and those derived from production issues. Process materials are different than discrete materials. Process materials are powder, liquids or gases; they must be confined; and they are more difficult to accurately measure. Process materials are close to their natural sources (farms, mines, etc.) and Read More...
