A flattened BOM, as a result of the product development and manufacturing processes being designed concurrently, in addition to being much easier to plan and schedule than a non-flattened multi-level BOM, has many other advantages—from reducing the production lead time to fewer parts to be picked, kitted, and handled. Not to mention that the engineering Read More...

Manual versus Information Technology Enabled Lean Manufacturing
All good lean systems have both physical systems in the plant and near real time information technology backbones that centralize data. The primary advantage of

simplify the concepts of lean manufacturing  lean philosophy is to simplify the physical processes so that one does not need to manage overly complex data systems, though it is still necessary to manage the relevant data at the points where corrections are needed. To that end, many IT systems are designed to bring from the field only the data that management or decision-makers can do something about. The reality is that most companies operate in a hybrid, mixed-mode environment where flow or lean and traditional batch or push manufacturing models Read More...
