A Manufacturing Imperative: Enterprise SOA
In the past, full efficiency was almost impossible for most manufacturing sites thanks to lack of integration between plant systems and business systems. But

plants manufacturing  to share data among plants within a distributed manufacturing network, IT developers cobbled together direct links between the different layers of applications. This kind of point-to-point integration made sense at the time, but it has resulted in a cobweb of hundreds, even thousands, of brittle interfaces. The complexity of linking large and disperse landscapes has literally crippled the health and flexibility of most manufacturing IT architectures and hence business performance. Adapting those systems 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

Today's concept of lean manufacturing grew from TPS, and the name lean stems from its driving principle to use less of everything (i.e., less labor, less space, less inventory, less movement, etc.) than traditional manufacturing processes, while producing a greater variety of products. In other words, it is essentially an umbrella philosophy that focuses on creating customer value-adding activities, the systematic identification and elimination of Read More...
Demand-driven Planning in Manufacturing
Cover-time planning (CTP) is a

plants manufacturing  such as adapting their plants to a flow production model. In other words, they will have to operate in work cells that build families of products (rather than functional work centers producing large batches of components or products), and they will have established rules for sending replenishment signals to their internal (i.e., preceding work station) and external suppliers. These changes will not happen overnight, and the process should begin with the conversion of a few appropriate products with Read More...

This article defines process manufacturing; discusses its formulation, packaging, and pricing issues; talks about interfaces; and provides cautions and caveats.

plants manufacturing  have their own manufacturing plants. Chains contract for these products. In the case of soups, process manufacturers create and warehouse non-descript, non-labeled aluminum cans of soup, hence brite stock. (Since the cans are filled, sealed, and, then, cooked under pressure, their shelf life can be expressed in months.) By separating the product formula from a packaging recipe, a production order can be issued to make the cans of soup and, when the customer is ready to receive the soup, a work order Read More...
