Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations
While lean/flow leverages practices to stay ahead of actual demand, traditional approaches better coordinate secondary, back-office systems like accounting and

mrp lean jit  or flow practices (i.e., MRP will typically handle planning, while lean would deal with the execution). Manufacturers must also be fully aware of whether their systems use actual demand, sales forecasts, or a combination of the two in order to populate their MPS. Also, manufacturers need to do some preliminary work before even thinking about deploying flow manufacturing software, such as adapting their plants to a flow production model. In other words, they will have to operate in work cells that build 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

This is Part One of a multi-part note. For this reason, there has been increased 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, Read More...
Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints
The theory of constraints (TOC) is similar to, yet different from, the lean philosophy. TOC focuses on optimizing production through critical bottlenecks in

They should select a product line or family that is best suited to lean execution and start their implementation there, rather than wait until the value-stream analysis and mapping are perfect. Successful manufacturers will also start with best physical practices on the shop floor (e.g., a visual system factory) and add technology as they start to expand their implementations. In today's manufacturing environment, many companies Read More...
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

Sequencing and Mixed-model Production Another lean tool is sequencing , or determining the 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 Read More...
The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena
Lean principles are difficult to employ in complex environments, but materials requirement planning has well-known limitations. The theory of constraints, which

However, Just-in-time, Lean, and Flow Are Not Universal Panaceas The challenge in using lean and flow manufacturing as a panacea for the shortcomings of MRP is often in setting the number of kanban cards in the system and the size of the kanban . Even with a help of computerized systems, this can become complex if the demand for each product varies significantly and the production layout is not Read More...

The long batch processing times associated with these systems means it can take days to assess different courses of action, to get the data required to make production decisions, and to communicate changes throughout the value chain.
