The benefits of software in a Lean production environment

In a recent article in the Manufacturing Business Technology magazine, Julie Fraser discusses how “software can bring some capabilities to the plant environment that are very difficult – if not impossible – to achieve by other means.” In particular, she highlights resource allocation as a need that can only truly be addressed by systems that look at multiple products and a highly skilled workforce that cannot all be cross-trained. Software also provides visibility into the plant through automated data collection, and performance reporting. The article, “Why buy plant software in a Lean environment?” can be found HERE.
