ERP for Lean Manufacturing
Drive Continuous Improvement
It isn’t easy to maintain efficient operations in today’s manufacturing environment, especially with everyone looking for a competitive edge. Typical manufacturing plants have multiple vendors, multiple interfaces, complex information flows, and asynchronous processing, all of which can lead to limited visibility into orders, materials, and production. To achieve peak performance, manufacturers must systematically identify and eliminate plant floor inefficiencies.
mcaConnect provides our ERP for Lean Manufacturing solutions to companies committed to lean principles and processes who want to run their business using Microsoft Dynamics AX, the leading ERP solution with fully integrated lean manufacturing management tools. Our ERP for lean manufacturing based on Microsoft Dynamics AX combines the expert services of mcaConnect with the powerful technology of Microsoft Dynamics AX to offer tailored solutions that provides significant ROI.
Our lean manufacturing strategy requires a four-step cycle of continuous improvement:
- Value-stream mapping every process, including inputs and outputs, across the entire supply-chain
- Analysis and modeling identifies tasks that could be simplified or cut altogether
- Implementation and continuous improvement actualizes change on the plant floor
- Management and reporting evaluates the results and begins the cycle again
Problems can occur when managers, executives, and plant floor workers do not fully understand and support all parts of the lean manufacturing process. Employees at each level must have the information and tools they need to support lean manufacturing, and these tools must work together to integrate and enhance the planning, analysis, implementation, and reporting of the lean manufacturing cycle.
Lean Manufacturing in Microsoft Dynamics AX can empower your people to successfully implement kanban, kaizen, heijunka-board production leveling, just-in-time operations, and other key tactics by delivering the specific functionality, access to information, and process flexibility demanded by lean manufacturing operations.
