The Infor® M3 Inventory Planning Workbench (IPW) is an online configurable spread-sheet style grid for viewing and/or simulating and editing inventory, demand, and supply across multiple variable time buckets. Filtering of items and color-coding of cells helps the user to focus on exceptions like low-stock, short coverage time, orders vs forecast deviations, expiring stock, and more.

■ Plan and analyze scheduling proposals to meet inventory needs.
■ Simplify identifying issues with demand and supply, through color coding and filtering of items.
■ Directly release scheduling proposal into real manufacturing orders—directly from within the grid.

Download Webinar: 5 Steps For Creating A Common Language To Define Manufacturing Innovation

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Mar 1, 2019 4:22:46 PM

MASTER SERIES FOR MANUFACTURING: Part 1 - A webinar designed to share a knowledge base for manufacturing sciences & technology and applications to improve production performance.

As we hear more about Industry 4.0; Industrial Internet of Things, and The Digital Factory, it might be a good time to reflect and develop a “Common Language” as it pertains to the word “Manufacturing.”

Since every word has specific meaning, we should ensure that terms such as “Manufacturing” and “Manufacturing Technology” are understood and articulated with a shared language.

This effort could also serve a very useful purpose as we review the developments in the past century and plan ahead for future ones.

“Manufacturing” is the REPETITIVE use of an organized collection of Physical processes, Information Processes and the combination of the two to achieve the “Product” at the required quantity, quality, cost, time and place.

It is the repetitive use of all processes that distinguish “manufacturing” from research, design, product development, etc.

What's In A Label? What Consumers Demand, And Regulations Require.

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Feb 26, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Bringing products to market to meet the growing demands of consumers is getting increasingly complex. The demand for additive-free, non-GMO, low calorie, and fresh products is not just a fad. Conscientious consumers focus on health, wellness, and social issues as they shop for family meals. They will take into consideration clean labels, visibility into suppliers, humane treatment of animals, and environmental sustainability.

This is adding to the burden on food and beverage companies as they struggle to comply with vague definitions and evolving standards for compliance. Today’s clean label movement is an example of consumer demand for informative labels and products free of added chemicals, colors, and unnecessary ingredients. While food and beverage companies may want to seize the opportunity to appeal to a market that has spending power, the task isn’t easy. Definitions evolve, as do expectations.
