This white paper outlines a framework that emphasizes digitization and business transformation and the new opportunities pull processes bring. The mechanism of “Pull” processes—those triggered by an actual event instead of a forecast—is nothing new. It is at the heart of many successful manufacturing strategies. Recent technological advances in digitization, including the harnessing of Big Data analytics, the use of the cloud, Business Process Management (BPM), social media, IIoT, and mobility, have extended the power of Pull beyond Lean manufacturing. In the wake of the current technological innovation wave, it is not uncommon for manufacturers to not know what next step to take. In light of these new developments, this white paper will focus on the mechanism of business transformation enabled by these technologies, which can be attributed to two major forces: the power of Pull and digitization. Nine practical applications are detailed, showing how innovative manufacturers can better

As more companies compete for business, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) increasingly demand higher production rates and greater production flexibility from suppliers. If smaller-sized companies want to compete, they need the right tools and latest technology. NC Machining manufactures should ask three primary questions when considering the tools to improve competitiveness and implement Lean practices: • Do the tools provide the means for improved collaboration between engineering and manufacturing, and incorporate manufacturing best practices? • Can all data and program information reside in one database or platform that is accessible concurrently by all enterprise stakeholders—from design engineering to the shop floor? • Is it possible to perform real-time multi-disciplinary simulations to improve performance and manufacturing targets? Discover how to optimize your NC Machine Shop Production, minim

As a manufacturer, you know the industry is changing. You’re expected to produce more, work faster and leaner, and find ways to make new products like those comprising the Internet of Things (IoT). Customer and employee expectations are also changing rapidly because our experiences as consumers shape our demands for business. As many factory employees are approaching retirement, a new generation is joining the workforce—a generation that wants the business systems they interact with to be as intuitive as those they use in all other areas of their life. A new report from Aberdeen explores today’s manufacturing landscape and outlines how the latest enterprise resource planning (ERP) software forms a foundation that can support Industry 4.0 for smaller manufacturers looking to grow.

"Lean" is defined as a process to improve manufacturing and service operations, reduce waste, improve quality and drive down cost. While many packaging companies have embraced a number of Lean Manufacturing concepts, many have yet to fully realize the benefits of a fully-integrated Lean environment. Leveraging an ERP system that embraces "Lean" principles and incorporates industry specific best practices can facilitate and support the process. In this white paper, learn how lean manufacturing can apply to printing and packaging, and how an ERP system fits into the process.
