Conclusion Manufacturers need to identify which approach works best for them. Do built-in ERP analytics meet business requirements and help manage organizational performance, or should manufacturers take advantage of the additional benefits of a full BI solution? Organizations may be using their current set of ERP analytics, Read More...

The Practical Realities of Automating ETO Business Processes
Today, engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers—also known as project-based manufacturers—experience significant market pressure across their sales, engineering

The Basics of Quote-to-order Systems
Global competition means more choice for consumers and increasing customer demands. Manufacturers and distributors must develop a better understanding of what

The customer typically starts with the request for quote (RFQ), gets back the official proposal from the seller, eventually places the purchase order (PO), and receives the product and accompanying documentation (customer data pack). The marketing department captures the requirements and validates the configuration, then generates a proposal, Read More...
Do Chinese Enterprises Really Need MES and WMS?
Despite rapid industrialization in China and other developing countries, most manufacturing execution systems (MES) and warehouse management systems (WMS) are

stoppages  aware of production line stoppages and will continue loading material indefinitely until there is no more space on the conveyor. When multiple production lines share the same conveyor system, the shortage of space may lead to critical material shortages and downtime on some production lines, even as material piles up for other production lines. Productivity dwindles for production and warehouse workers alike. One of China's largest appliance and air conditioning manufacturers found an inexpensive yet Read More...
Production Intelligence--Improving Production by Filling a Traditional Gap
Enterprises understand the value of integration. One area that has been ignored is the plant. Plant systems and corporate systems must be complementary and

Process engineers can use maintenance, quality, and performance information to identify areas that require improvement such as quality procedures and standards, diagnosing bottle necks, increasing response time, streamlining scheduling, and analysing equipment failures. Quality assurance personnel can understand the production environment to more fully correlate quality with production. Quality assurance personnel can compare plant production against Read More...
Begin at the End: A Good Lean Strategy Starts with Defining Your Ultimate Goal
You know the statistics—lean can shorten your lead times, reduce inventories, cut operating costs, free up resources, and more. But countless surveys have confirmed that most lean initiatives fail to deliver expected and needed results. Why? Are successes confined to a restricted list of industry sectors? Are only "lean experts" capable of leading an organization through a successful implementation?

stoppages  eliminate root causes for stoppages in flow. The two reasons for creating alternative future state maps are; (1) certain improvements might be logistically, technologically, or cost prohibitive, and (2) there is no single correct future state. The VSM approach is significantly more effective than the aforementioned approaches because it prioritizes the improvement efforts. But, it still has drawbacks. One issue is that it involves those who will be impacted by the change much later in the improvement Read More...
The Practical Realities of Automating ETO Business Processes
Today, engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers—also known as project-based manufacturers—experience significant market pressure across their sales, engineering and manufacturing groups as they strive to win business and streamline end-to-end processes. But by capturing engineering knowledge and using it to automate key business processes, manufacturers can increase sales bid and win rates, decrease internal operating expenses, and shorten lead times.

The Next R(E)volution of Lean
By seeing a business as a "value system" for customers, companies can shift lean strategic priorities towards growth-oriented targets instead of cost-cutting. Instead of squeezing additional margins to boost the bottom line, lean philosophy can increase demand response and sales, while maintaining and lowering cost per unit—thus enabling lower prices, a competitive edge, and more business.

stoppages  eliminate root causes for stoppages in flow. The two reasons for creating multiple future state maps are; (1) certain improvements might be logistically-, technologically-, or cost-prohibitive, and (2) there is no single correct future state. The VSM approach is significantly more effective than the other approaches because it prioritizes the improvement efforts. This technique, like the others, has its drawbacks. One issue is that it involves those individuals who will be impacted by the change much Read More...
