How ERP can support lean manufacturing
Businesses are continuously trying to find ways to maximize productivity and reduce waste to remain competitive in the global marketplace.
Lean manufacturing allows businesses to eliminate that which does not add value to deliver the best possible product to the customer. An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system improves lean manufacturing by providing the visibility and tools to identify wasteful processes and assists with continually improving processes to ensure that waste is eliminated wherever possible.
Use data from an ERP system for process optimization
An ERP system can be used to support lean principles and strategies to slim down the manufacturing process by giving you full visibility across all business operations. This enables you to create an enhanced experience for your customer through a value creation process that eliminates waste.
ERP provides you with the rich data you need to schedule your shop floor processes according to lean principles and techniques. An ERP system can assist with workflows which automatically trigger production lines to manufacture goods once an order is made.
Create a connected shop floor through the Internet of Things (IoT) ensuring real-time production updates for scheduling around planned downtime to avoid inefficiencies.
Leverage ERP metrics and tracking tools to analyze and prioritize each process and add value to your product or service. Improved quality allows businesses to stay competitive and meet the changing needs and wants of customers.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) can be monitored to highlight potential processes or operations that are affecting the quality of the finished product. Allowing for proactive maintenance, management and continuous improvement.
With an ERP system and lean manufacturing methodologies in mind, you can forecast your purchasing and stocking needs by leveraging historical data – eliminate waste and drive production. Demand planning also accounts for fluctuating prices and availability of raw material. ERP gives you the information and predictions to power your lean principles.
An ERP system is an extremely valuable data mine and planning tool that can be leveraged in every area of the business.
