Lean manufacturing can be difficult to deploy and sustain with a traditional application of the methodology with adhoc tools and processes. A manufacturer’s supply chain is ever-changing and dominated by the high-mix, low volume demand volatility of the industry. With core lean principles in place, and a focus on the enterprise-wide operational elements that add complexity, companies can maximize benefits from their lean program.
i2 Lean Lifecycle Management is a comprehensive planning, scheduling and execution solution specifically designed to enable lean manufacturing in dynamic, complex supply chains dealing with multiple fulfillment modes and diversified product portfolios. The solution tightly integrates planning and execution by automating these functions as repeatable and standardized processes. With more than two decades of shop floor domain expertise, i2 solution can help enable planners, operators, and supervisors create, evaluate, publish, and execute pull-based production plans in challenging production environments.
