Off-loading Some Green Compliance Burdens: Can Enterprise Applications Meet the Challenge?


The European Union’s WEEE Directive requires electronics manufacturers of member states to manage and pay for electrical and electronics waste recycling. Yet some prospective business service providers are waiting for the legislation and market to mature before offering their solutions.

The Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment (WEEE) Directive 2006/96/EC sets recycling and reuse standards across a variety of industries from home appliances to computer products. The WEEE directive holds the manufacturer (producer) ultimately accountable for recovering products and for recycling up to 75 percent of the material content by weight. Failure to comply results in the manufacturer paying a penalty of 2 percent of its annual revenue. In other words, the WEEE directive Read More

The Greening of SaaS


Traditionally, the advantage of software as a service (SaaS) is that it reduces the costs involved in installing, deploying, and supporting stand-alone software. But recent “green” initiatives have shed light on another benefit: with no hardware to purchase or software to run, SaaS applications require less energy than their on-premise counterparts. Learn how your company can benefit from the “greening” of SaaS.

Green is a growth market When an organization decides to adopt a green philosophy-which usually means reducing its carbon footprint, lowering overall energy consumption and practicing social responsibility-it practices a regular drill to turn the concept into an operational reality. Where IT is concerned, this starts from an initial assessment of the IT environment in terms of resource consumption and waste Read More

Cut-to-size/shape Industries


The specialized material resource planning module for cut-to-size/shape industries must be able to recognize when current demand cannot be satisfied by the in stock inventory due to dimensional issues, and include that unsatisfied demand in its reorder messages.

To that end, solutions like SYSPRO Material Yield System ( MYS ) alleviate the pesky problem of time-consuming yield estimations and excessive scrap wastage while accommodating customer-specific dimensional requirements, by making automatic yield calculations from full sheets, rods or tubes or stock remnants, and Read More

How Green Is Your Technology Landscape?


Introducing “Green” to Projects There is a growing trend in IT organizations to reduce the environmental footprints that are typically generated from large enterprise IT project initiatives. To achieve this goal, a group of prominent IT organizations (HP, Dell, Microsoft, IBM, and others) has merged under the banner The Green Grid to promote energy efficiency in data centers and

Recycling of e-waste processing usually involves dismantling the equipment into various parts—metal frames, power supplies, circuit boards, and plastics—which are then separated, often by hand. Alternatively, material is shredded, and sophisticated, expensive equipment separates the various metal and plastic fractions, which are then sold to smelters or plastics recyclers. As environmental concerns have grown, legislation such as the Basel Convention is being enacted globally to Read More

Shell Deploys E2open for Global Materials Management


Shell has selected E2open’s E2 Process Management to create visibility on the varied procured engineering materials along its complex supply chain. This traceability program will be deployed to multiple worksites and user groups.

As far as competition, Shell looked at dozens of vendors, some small vendors who specialize in oil and gas, others who sell supply chain visibility solutions. But in the end, Shell selected E2open for the superior capabilities of its E2 Process Management solution as well as the advanced analytics and cloud-based connectivity in the E2open Read More

Lean Manufacturing: A Primer


Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical areas of hidden waste are over-production, waiting, transportation, over-processing, motion, excessive inventory, and defective units.

What is commonly referred to as lean manufacturing today is an extension of the proverbial Toyota Production System ( TPS ), which was originated by Taiichi Ohno and first saw use in the 1950s. The conditions that led to its development stemmed from the aftermath of World War II, when Japanese automotive manufacturers faced serious competition from American counterparts. At this time, Japanese Read More

Front-office Lean-Taking Lean Manufacturing Beyond the Shop Floor


Lean manufacturing practices are employed to some degree on almost every manufacturing floor, but many companies aren't realizing the real benefits of lean by bringing lean to their front-office operations. Here are a few tips on lean office operations.

These companies perform extensive project-related work before a project gets to the shop floor or into the field for installation or construction, creating enormous potential for losses due to inefficient processes. And even once fabrication or installation begins, administrative and design activities are integral parts of the product or project delivery process. So in these firms, the line between the front office and the shop floor is decidedly blurred. Read More

Reliability Driven Maintenance--Closing the CMMS "Value Gap"? Part One: Trends and Definition


The metric of plant maintenance should now be in the ability of the plant to meet the strategic goals of the company beyond customarily expected cost savings, such as improved plant output, performance predictability, product quality, customer service, safety, environmental control, etc.

That is to say, just like inventory one does not need at a certain time is considered a waste, maintenance tasks done before then they are truly required also constitute a waste. When preventive maintenance tells us it is the time to perform a maintenance routine, the $64,000 question is, could we have waited or eliminated this routine without a negative impact on the asset''s ability to meet the business objectives? We cannot know what would have happened for sure after Read More

Streamlining for Success: The Lean Supply Chain


When flexibility and speed are requisites for success, it’s the lean organization that leads the race. World-class manufacturing organizations know the value of focusing on the lean fundamentals: eliminating waste, simplifying processes, and continuously improving. By pursuing lean strategies—optimizing inventory and streamlining manufacturing processes—they can reduce inefficiencies and costs in their production processes, and improve customer responsiveness.

waste disposal bagster  are essential to eliminating waste and improving cash flow. World-class manufacturers typically maintain low inventory levels, and accomplish this through the use of technology and a finely tuned inventory replenishment system. Fast, effective communication, within the organization and with trading partners, is a required complement to an efficient inventory replenishment system. Electronic communication now makes near real-time connectivity possible at every level of the supply chain. When flexibility an Read More
