PeopleSoft Gathers Manufacturing and SCM Wherewithal Part Three: The Manufacturing Industry
Even before the mega merger, PeopleSoft had already set it sights on a bigger manufacturing presence. PeopleSoft’s acquisition of mid-to-large ERP system developer J.D. Edwards this summer, and most recently demand flow and lean manufacturing software solution from JCIT, might indicate some deep though process rather than a number of impulse initiatives from the past.
to a minimum and shortening cycle times to fill customer orders ever more quickly. Flow manufacturing in particular leverages mathematical tools to automate some of the aspects of lean manufacturing. For example, a mathematical model determines the daily production commensurate with demand, defining line designs so that materials flow at a steady rate to meet demand, and improving throughput by way of proper sequencing. The idea is to synchronize product assembly as to be able to make each like product

Streamlining for Success: The Lean Supply Chain
When flexibility and speed are requisites for success, it’s the lean organization that leads the race. World-class manufacturing organizations know the value of focusing on the lean fundamentals: eliminating waste, simplifying processes, and continuously improving. By pursuing lean strategies—optimizing inventory and streamlining manufacturing processes—they can reduce inefficiencies and costs in their production processes, and improve customer responsiveness.
auto industry lies in shortening the response time, throughout the supply chain, to customer changes in demand. In the volatile, rapidly changing automotive industry, enhanced electronic communication and a more responsive, integrated supply chain are essential.

New Product Development and Introduction (NPDI)
New product development and introduction (NPDI) is probably the most important process for many companies, but also one of the least understood. While NPDI is responsible for revenues, few companies assign an owner for the whole process. Instead, it is usually driven through a series of functional “silos,” causing delay—and the loss of the original market requirements.
product life cycles are shortening. As a result, companies are increasingly dependent on revenues from new products to drive their top lines each year. A recent study by Deloitte showed that, for the companies most dependent upon new products, the proportion of their revenue derived from these products will increase from around one third to nearly a half over the next three years (see Figure 1). New Products = New Revenue Streams Now + 3 years Top Quartile 36% 45% Median 15% 20% The implication is that
Pricing and Revenue Optimization: A Manufacturing Perspective
Pricing and revenue optimization is the process of improving business margins by either increasing unit prices or increasing gross revenues. This type of optimization is fast being recognized as having the capability to help businesses grow margins significantly. In fact, studies have shown that it can add a 15 to 50 percent incremental margin to the bottom line.
complex mathematical problems in ever-shortening time frames and deliver results in minutes and hours, rather than days and weeks. Optimization as a process enables the determination of the best possible utilization of resources (that is, people, time, processes, vehicles, equipment, raw materials, supplies, and capacity) needed to achieve a desired result. The result sought could be either (1) the minimization of cost, process time, or resources, or (2) the maximization of price, profit, throughput,
