Lean Tools and Practices that Eliminate Manufacturing Waste


A number of lean manufacturing tools and practices have long been used to reduce manufacturing waste. These include the five S's, visual controls, standardized work, mistake proofing, total productive maintenance, cellular manufacturing, single-digit setup, pull systems, sequencing, activity-based costing, and leveled production.

manufacturing plant simulation  order in which a manufacturing facility will process a number of different jobs from one production line in order to achieve objectives (e.g., the quantities needed daily). This is also referred to as mixed-model production , as it makes several different parts or products in varying lot sizes so that a factory produces close to the same mix of products that will be sold that day. The mixed-model schedule or sequence governs the making and the delivery of component parts, including those provided by Read More

Cloud ERP for Manufacturing: 6 Considerations


There is no shortage of cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software offerings nowadays, for almost any vertical manufacturing market segment. But while cloud solutions are routine for many businesses, manufacturing companies have not yet fully embraced them. TEC analyst Aleksey Osintsev explores the main reasons why manufacturers are staying away from the cloud and overturns them.

Customer Relationship Manufacturing: the Symbiosis of Sales and Manufacturing


The departments within a company are like the children in a family: the owner, chief executive officer (CEO), or any other decision maker in the company, has a favorite department—in somewhat the same way that parents tend to have a favorite child. Not having children of my own, I did some research on the topic and found this very interesting article on a study about the burying beetle

Petrochemical Manufacturing


Companies in the petrochemical industry manage the operations and processes that transform crude oil and other raw materials into chemical products. There are two major categories of petrochemical companies:
  • companies that refine oil and other raw materials and convert them into basic chemicals such as ethylene; and
  • companies that use these basic chemicals to create materials that can then be used in other industries to produce finished products, such as plastics, detergents, paints, fertilizers, polyester, etc.

Adaptive Manufacturing: Enabling the Lean Six Sigma Enterprise


Enabling lean manufacturing and six sigma principles to improve operations requires a nontraditional approach. The old idea that lean manufacturing and six sigma principles don’t require IT isn’t valid anymore. Enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management (SCM) applications are critical for enabling holistic, lean manufacturing operations, and work hand-in-hand to better enable consumption—not forecasts—to drive replenishment.

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.
