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.

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 areas of hidden waste are over-production, waiting, transportation, over-processing, motion, excessive inventory, and defective units.

ON DEMAND MANUFACTURING: primary focus here is on customer value-adding activities, while the elimination of waste ( muda in Japanese) and continuous improvement are consequences of this. What Constitutes Waste? Implementing a lean philosophy usually leads to cost reduction and employee empowerment, and many people tend to translate lean as mean .

Selecting ERP for Engineer-to-order Manufacturing
The enterprise resource planning (ERP) needs of engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers differ from other manufacturers. How can an ETO select ERP for project visibility and control? Most enterprise resource planning (ERP) software was not designed for a project-oriented environment like engineer-to-order (ETO). How do the needs of ETO manufacturers differ from more traditional manufacturers? And how can an ETO manufacturer go about selecting ERP software that truly meets their needs for project visibility and control? Download this white paper to find out more.

Implementing Kanban Alternatives in Lean Manufacturing
Kanban—the Japanese term for physical or visual signs that trigger replenishment, which can be a useful part of lean manufacturing—is not a good fit in some situations.

What Are Manufacturing Execution Systems?
A manufacturing execution system (MES) can be defined as a collection of business processes providing event-by-event, real-time execution of planned production requirements. However, market ambiguity and functional overlap with enterprise resource planning systems obscure what an MES can bring to an enterprise.

ON DEMAND MANUFACTURING: personnel what is going on in the plant currently and a very short history into the past. Quality control information is also gathered and a laboratory information management system [LIMS—applications used to manage the collection of samples, collection and formatting of test results, and the reporting of results by sample or product category, whereas these applications may be environmental-, medical- or research-focused] may be part of this configuration to tie process conditions to the quality data

ON DEMAND MANUFACTURING: to customer orders based on demand pull . This includes kanban and mixed-mode manufacturing, which makes several different parts or products in varying lot sizes, so a factory will produce close to the same mix of products that will be sold that day, with the goal to build every model every day, according to daily demand. It also has the flexibility to schedule and manage flow orders for products within product families, with or without using MRP. Again, the idea is for products to arrive exactly when
