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

The trouble is further compounded by the army of software providers (including enterprise resource planning [ERP], supply chain management [SCM], manufacturing execution systems [MES], and product lifecycle management [PLM] providers, as well as best-of-breed, bolt-on lean specialists) that have been hyping their lean capabilities, despite the fact that most of them still support mere nuggets of pseudo- just-in-time (JIT)

Sorting Through the ERP, Lean MFG, APS, and MES Clutter - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series started with the fact that the ability to sense demand and become a demand-driven (responsive) business is more than just the catch phrase du jour: it has become a recipe for survival. Every sensible enterprise is on a quest to deliver on time and as quickly as necessary, with minimum inventory (and working capital), and the highest necessary

takt  around  the concepts of  takt time (production rate or drumbeat ),  heijunka (load leveling and line balancing ), and manufacturing process redesign to make it more agile (i.e., the ability to quickly change between product runs and reduce setups). In such a setup, a  Visual Production Control (VPC)  that uses common sense visual signals (i.e.,  Kanbans  or supermarkets) to initiate (trigger) a new action (e.g., replenish an empty container or bin) should suffice, right? Not really. Even though Read More

Going Lean Step By Step with IFS Applications


In the relentless pursuit of profitability and competitiveness, more and more companies are turning to lean manufacturing to reduce or eliminate waste in their production processes. Once confined to the automotive industry, lean principles are becoming standard operating procedure in many industries today. The reason is simple: When implemented with a good performance management system, lean principles have a proven track record of operational and strategic success, which ultimately translates into increased value to the end customer. This paper illustrates how IFS Applications supports lean principles, particularly in the many manufacturing environments that require both rate-based (takt-driven) and order-based shop-floor execution.

Enterprise Resource Planning Vendors Address Lean Manufacturing


Intentia, Fujitsu Glovia, QAD, and SSA Global's solutions supporting lean manufacturing are examined. Which areas the extended enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors excel in depends on their original ERP system's suitability for repetitive versus to-order environments.

takt  solutions support, include calculating takt time to establish the drumbeat, volume and mix leveling, heijunka range calculations to schedule the finishing cell or final assembly line (i.e., the sequence and quantity of parts), and demand calculation algorithms, which are used to handle variability so as to configure product for different product lines. For demand calculations, demand master data identify the critical details of demand determination, such as the average daily demand and the template used Read More

Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints


The theory of constraints (TOC) is similar to, yet different from, the lean philosophy. TOC focuses on optimizing production through critical bottlenecks in order to meet market demand.

takt  the flow and the takt of the flow through the factory, TOC optimizes the flow through the factory by focusing on planning the takt of the flow through the bottleneck. TOC is also consistent with lean manufacturing in that both kanban , which is a part of the just-in-time (JIT) philosophy, and drum-buffer-rope (DBR), which is a part of the TOC philosophy, represent synchronized and pull signal production control approaches. For an exhaustive discussion of lean manufacturing in previous notes, see Lean Read More

Transitioning to Lean with Oracle Flow Manufacturing


Lean execution strategies within enterprises and across supply chains can dramatically reduce cycle times, improve quality, reduce waste, and improve bottom lines. In other words, lean is more than an advantage: it is a competitive necessity. Oracle’s Flow Manufacturing module capabilities in lean execution can enable the transition from a discrete, push-based manufacturing environment to a flow, pull-based one.
