. In today’s highly competing environment, industries are aspiring to enact and sustain highly productive assets. Productive assets can be accomplished through product performance, initiation to new product (product design & development), or manufacturing performances like product, process and volume flexibility, low unit cost, higher throughput. The cellular manufacturing system has been turned out as eminent manufacturing strategy that assists to improve manufacturing adaptability and throughput by applying the conception of group technology(GT). The major objective of this research is to develop the contextual relation between the barriers of CMS.
Stated by (Chopra & Meindl, 2001, p.489), “ISCM includes all the processes involved in planning for fulfilling a customer order”. These processes are as follows: Strategic planning, this process concentrate on the network design of supply chain. The use of IT in this process has significant impact on the network design decision Characteristics of available production technologies have a significant impact on net- work design decisions. If production technology displays significant economies of scale, a few high-capacity locations are most effective. This is the case in the manufacture of computer chips, for which factories require a very large investment.
The advantages of this technique in mass production are cost reduction and low reaction time to changes. Reconfigurable machining systems (RMS) allow adaptation to MC modular architectures. A reconfigurable manufacturing system (RMS) is one designed at the outset for rapid change in its structure, as well as its hardware and software components, in order to quickly adjust its production capacity and functionality within a part family in response to sudden market changes or intrinsic system change . Modularity helps to characterize RMS. The three types of modular architecture discussed in the article are the
Simplifying operations in order to improve organisation performance. There are clear benefits for organisations that wish to deploy an MIS in order to improve the performance of their operations. Some of the most prominent objectives include: Focusing data collection on performance – the organisation can focus on collecting certain data sets that are essential for the improvement of key activities and tasks. Reporting performance management – the organisation can use certain benchmarks for assessing whether its performance has reached acceptable standards. Obtaining a holistic client view – the organisation can obtain an overall view of client needs and actions through the generated MIS reports.
(2004). This quote highlights how EIS are beneficial to higher management in planning ahead for a business firm. EIS are becoming an important tool of top-level control in many organizations. They help an executive spot a problem, an opportunity, or a trend. According to Gupta and Malik, Senior managers use EIS to make decisions.
Chuu also provides a clear understanding of the concept of Manufacturing technology and does so in simple terms by defining it as any equipment or methodology that is part of the production system that allows the improvement in terms of costs, quality and flexibility. Manufacturing Technology provides tools that enable production of all manufactured goods. These master tools of industry magnify the effort of individual workers and give an industrial nation the power to turn raw materials into affordable, quality products necessary for today’s society. In more simple terms, advanced manufacturing technology makes modern life easy or rather possible. Production tools include and other related equipment manufacturing technology provides the tools that power a growing, stable economy and rising standard of living.
Products are central to any business and PLM (Teamcenter) is an idea which helps organizing product development resources and processes together to deliver real value to business. Teamcenter connects people throughout the lifecycle with a single source of product and process knowledge. PLM Training Teamcenter brings product engineering functionality to a new level. Drive productivity, improve global teamwork, take control of your product lifecycles, and increase your return on investment through our specially designed training classes. • Training on various PLM Modules • Individual In-house classroom training • Corporate/Industrial
Investment in information technology has resulted in significant effect on productive levels, growth and also the value of business organization. There are also other works which have proved that there are also positive results on internal performance such as inventory turnover. All these researches suggests that there are positive benefits from the implementation of IT systems with successful ERP deployment, many little have pointed out the statistical models and reports that favors the advantages. Over the last few decades, companies have paid a considerable attention to the methods of Manufacturing Planning and Control Systems (MPCS). Management responsibilities concerning the concept of MPCS
Q. 2. Recent development in Technology has enabled huge global organizations to avail information easily in their premises for smooth functioning of various departments within an organization. Much of a company's success comes down to its Supply Chain Management and logistics. The development of Information Systems in SCM helps in cost reductions, customer satisfaction and productivity.
The applications having ability to handle the core business and operational data of enterprises typically fall in multi-tiered  category. Ericsson Network Manager (ENM) provides centralized operation and maintenance capabilities for Ericsson Network Elements. It provides powerful and unified performance and configuration management, software, hardware and fault management, as well as security, self-monitoring, and system administration. It offers simplified network management with advanced querying and filtering capabilities, shorter troubleshooting lead times, and faster implementation of network changes. To take advantage of the cloud model, ENM as a product needs to evolve in two particular directions to enhance the deployment flexibility, those are: Service Registration and Service Availability based on auto scale strategies.
