Implementing Lean Manufacturing Fundamentals to Increase Supply Chain Visibility, Reduce Organizational Waste and Boost Customer Satisfaction
The basic goal of LEAN Manufacturing is to get more done with less by minimizing inventory at all stages of production, shortening the product cycle times from raw materials to finished goods, and by eliminating waste.
This white paper outlines the when, why and how ERP supports Lean practices in an enterprise. In addition, it also clarifies the situations where ERP supports LEAN, the benefits of this support and why it only applies to some situations. Traditional LEAN principles such as Kanban (concept states that a supplier should only deliver components to the production line when they are needed) and Kaizen - (concept that focuses on continuous improvement) are widely enhanced by enterprise solutions.
LEAN manufacturing can be hugely strengthened with a synergistic ERP implementation and SYSPRO ERP Software answers one of the key requirements in many LEAN initiatives: readily available and accurate data.
