Achieving a Lean Enterprise PODCAST – Can a Business System Support Lean Initiatives?

Listen to Darren Hogg from eBECS discuss how a business system can support lean initiatives with David Weger and James Salter from Microsoft Dynamics.

Lean manufacturing is a methodology that has changed how manufacturers think about controlling costs and cutting waste ever since it was introduced by Jim Womack, John Krafcik and colleagues at MIT's International Motor Vehicle Program in 1987. Thousands of companies around the world have adopted the improvement methodology and its tools. The challenge for manufacturers now more than ever is to get a handle on how to leverage strong practices from lean manufacturing in addition to what is available from an ERP system.

Join our hosts and a special guest for this 15 minutes or less discussion to spark some thoughts on what your company should consider to ready itself for its own adoption of lean manufacturing. We'll discuss how an ERP system can and should support your lean initiatives.

Brought to you by Microsoft Dynamics, a leading provider of business management software solutions including: Enterprise Resource Management, Supply Chain Management, and Customer Relationship Management.
