ERP for Lean Manufacturing

ERP for Lean Manufacturing

Lean and ERP may be considered contradictory to each other as ERP modules focus on fixed lead times, lot-sizes and buffer inventories, whereas lean is focused on the elimination of lead time, one-piece flow and just-in-time supply. In reality, the two can and should coexist. Modern ERP systems can successfully support and improve lean implementation. eresource recognizes the power and advantages of lean manufacturing and has developed an effective ERP system incorporated with lean related features.

eresource aims to explore whether and how ERP and lean methodologies can coexist in SMBs. SMBs are forced to compete in today’s aggressive global environment and are faced with increasingly complex challenges. In this economy, SMBs are required to become more responsive and agile with their operational, tactical and strategic methods and create a thoughtful integration between their business operations and their manufacturing, production & service operations. Larger businesses are able to tackle these processes by implementing expensive ERP systems. eresource provides cost-effective ERP systems that help SMBs compete with these larger businesses.

eresource has developed an evaluation and selection process for their customers in the lean industry, to ensure that they choose the most suitable system for their business.
