Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial
Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the

mrp jit  forecasting tools common in MRP II (material resource planning)/ERP systems. These levels often exceed demand, resulting in building excessive finished inventory, while in a flow/lean/JIT environment orders are pulled through the process, based on actual demand. By contrast, rather than emphasizing planning like ERP, lean manufacturing and JIT concepts emphasize the continuous improvement of processes that lead to things such as reduced inventory throughout the supply chain, shorter lead times, and

QAD Pulling Through, Patiently But Passionately Part Four: Market Impact Continued


QAD has long shifted its focus from being a mere ERP vendor dedicated to the industrial mid-market to fully leveraging the Internet in the applications it provides to manufacturers and distributors to link their back-office systems to those of their business partners via private trading exchanges.

While QAD uses MRP for mid- and long-term planning, on the execution side, however, it caters to both JIT that is used for build-to-order or final assembly manufacturing, and to lean manufacturing, which is suitable for build-to-demand pull for finished and component items. Namely, most companies will still use MRP to ascertain longer-term dependent demand (i.e., based on forecasts), but replenishment will be based on independent demand (i.e., actual customer orders), with closely managed 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.

Meeting the Challenges of Product Traceability with Automated Data Collection


An effective traceability system involves determining which product and manufacturing process attributes to collect and maintain—and deciding when during the manufacturing process to begin collecting those attributes. Do you begin with raw material attributes from the supplier, at inspection, at assembly, at shipping? Explore the many facets of meeting product traceability challenges using automated data collection.

How Much Supply Chain Optimization Do We Really Need? - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series introduced the concept of (Rapid) Response Management in the realm of supply chain management (SCM) via a software category pioneer, Kinaxis. The currently bullish Kinaxis has a number of customers that are SAP ERP customers too, and for a long time SAP was at first dismissive (or at least ambivalent) regarding the need for Response Management, as the company had its own

Enterprise Applications--The Genesis and Future, Revisited Part One: 1960s--Pre-Computer Era


Knowing the history and evolution of enterprise applications is essential to understanding their current use and future developments. Each step in the evolution of the software is built on the fundamentals and principles developed within the previous one, which holds true for the contemporary phase of the 2000s as well.

In other words, rather than being reactive and waiting until the shortage occurred, the planner could be proactive and time phase orders, including releasing orders with multiple deliveries. Indeed, the enterprise systems currently in use by most large corporations worldwide are an evolution of the MRP systems, one of the first being devised by IBM and the US tractor Read More
