manufacturing costing system  interest in the lean manufacturing support philosophy. 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, Read More

Peripheral MES Functions What may be a critical flaw of the MES vendor community is its failure to define clearly and consistently the functionality of MES, adding to the confusion of buyers. When a provider declares itself to be an MES vendor, often all it is really saying is that it is not an ERP, enterprise asset Read More

Demand-driven Planning in Manufacturing


Cover-time planning (CTP) is a "pull" system, but with the intent of planning and not merely waiting for the execution time to act.

manufacturing costing system  driven Planning in Manufacturing Push versus Pull In traditional manufacturing, the time and cost of changeover to produce different products is high, as are the costs of inventory, planning, and expediting. Thus, goods are pushed through production at levels determined by often inaccurate scheduling and forecasting tools common in material resource planning (MRP II) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. These levels often exceed demand, resulting in building excess finished inventory, Read More
