SAP Manufacturing
Managing complexity while enhancing agility is a real challenge. To respond to customer needs, manufacturers must reduce their time to market and time to volume. And to respond to demand and supply shifts, they must be able to adapt to changing situations. To meet these challenges, companies require integrated solutions ensuring that manufacturing runs at the pace of their business.

Lean Manufacturing
In the manufacturing arena, lean is a top topic. And though companies expect a big payoff from the lean approach to manufacturing—including increases in production capacity and product quality, reduced production time and inventories, etc.—there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ philosophy of applying lean principles to every manufacturing organization. Find out how you need to view lean to get the most out of it for your particular organization.

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...

Demand-Driven Strategies for Complex Manufacturing
Many manufacturing companies have adopted or are considering the adoption of a demand-driven strategy. However, if you want to be demand-driven, you aren’t going to achieve it without adopting many of the tools, techniques, and principles that commonly reside within all of them. Some philosophies require a more intense re-engineering of processes and products than others. This paper addresses the various components and strategies for becoming a demand-driven organization, and how Cincom’s solutions can help you achieve that goal.
