    • LEAN MANUFACTURING VENDOR ENTERPRISE PORTAL Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal is solutioned as a customized Microsoft Dynamics AX Enterprise Portal group of web forms. Integrated directly through the .NET framework into Microsoft Dynamics AX, where all business logic and data access occur. The Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal offers a variety of functionality revolving around Supplier Kanbans, Subcontracting Kanbans and Purchase Schedules allowing internal and external users to quickly and simply view and modify information in real time. The Lean Manufacturing Vendor Portal delivers on the on the objective of turning a vendor relationship into a partner relationship. Providing the partner with immediate notice of requests for Kanban fulfillment enables the orgainsation to reduce further the buffers they hold. At the same time provide the partner with the tools they need to organise, plan and execute the requirements of the relationship. Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise portal provides additional functionality to leverage Lean Manufacturing in Microsoft Dynamics AX which provides the base level functionality any manufacturer committed to Lean requires. Functionality includes: Kanban, Subcontract Kanban, Kanban Call-off, Purchase Kanban, Transfer Kanban, Manufacture without PO’s, Kanban Board, Kanban Inventory Overview, Takt Meter, Bar codes, Lean Order Schedules, Heijunka Board, Sales Schedules, Cost Substitution, and Value Stream Mapping. eBECS offers additional solutions sets with its Lean Manufacturing II, Lean Manufacturing III and the Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal. eBECS has introduced these additional solution sets to address the specific needs of High Tech, Medical Device and Equipment, Aerospace & Defense and the Automotive manufactures. No longer is Lean a manual process improvement program, but now an institutionalized, seamless solution to support your people and their Lean thinking. Lean Manufacturing in Microsoft Dynamics AX and Lean Manufacturing II & III are a prerequisite for the Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal, this differs depending on the solution requirements. “We’ve already managed to increase our warehouse inventory turnover by a factor of twelve through Lean Methodology. Lean Enterprise for Microsoft Dynamics AX lets us accelerate and extend these efficiencies, not only for our own operations, but throughout the supply chain in collaboration with our suppliers and customers.” Michael Gerster, President Wika Instruments Inc. 3 Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal Copyright © 2009, eBECS.

    • SUPPLIER KANBAN Supplier Kanbans form one of the key elements of a pull-based production system. Immediately upon request for a Supplier Kanban, when it is sent to the supplier to be refilled, the Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal shows the supplier the Kanban order request. Those Kanbans will show in the ‘Waiting Kanbans’ area. The Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal is then used to view, edit and update Kanban order requests by the supplier. The supplier can simply filter through the Kanbans based on item numbers, dates, and quantities. The records can also be exported to Excel for quick analysis. The supplier then confirms or declines the Kanbans and updates the quantities and dates as needed. This information will then be immediately reflected within Microsoft Dynamics AX providing accurate information and a Kanban status of ‘Confirmed by Supplier’ or ‘Declined by Supplier’. Upon dispatching, the supplier can view all Confirmed Kanbans and print Kanban tickets to ship along with the material. 4 Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal Copyright © 2009, eBECS.

    • Considering the records are linked straight into Microsoft Dynamics AX, purchasing instantaneously sees the update in the Kanbans with a status of ‘Goods dispatched’. The Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal provides an easy way for suppliers to maintain and manage Supplier Kanbans in the real time environment needed in business today. SUBCONTRACTING KANBAN Similar to Supplier Kanbans, suppliers can also view and edit Subcontracting Kanbans from the Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal. Upon sending the Kanban to the Subcontractor, outside processors can view requirements, edit these requirements with realistic quantities and dates, Confirm or Decline the Kanban and Export Requirements to Excel for Analysis. Upon updating these requirements, Microsoft Dynamics AX will immediately reflect the changes in dates and quantities and update the Kanbans to statuses of ‘Confirmed by subcontractor’ or ‘Declined by subcontractor’. 5 Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal Copyright © 2009, eBECS.

    • Upon dispatching, the outside processor can view all Confirmed Kanbans. Kanban tickets can also be printed to send back with the material. PURCHASE SCHEDULES Requirements communication for Purchase Schedules can also be handled through the Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal. Published purchase schedules can be viewed, updated and confirmed by the supplier. Purchase schedule lines quantities can be updated to reflect the ability of the supplier to deliver to the schedule. The entire schedule can be confirmed by the supplier as can the capacity of the supplier. All updates are reflected within the Microsoft Dynamics AX purchase schedule. Here both purchase schedule lines and the purchase schedule status reflects that changes: 6 Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal Copyright © 2009, eBECS. All rights reserved.
    • Schedule History can also be viewed through the Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal. This displays all purchase schedules with relevant schedule statuses and lines with requirements and periods. The Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal facilitates the communication behind pull throughout the supply chain of Lean organizations. The power of seamless real-time requirements can help drive down inventory in the stockroom, improve performance and ultimately increase the bottom line. 7 Lean Manufacturing Vendor Enterprise Portal Copyright © 2009, eBECS.

ABOUT THE LEAN CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE Microsoft and eBECS established the Lean Centre of Excellence to serve as a collaborative facility for organisations looking to utilise Lean capabilities within Microsoft Dynamics AX. Microsoft recognises that a successful Lean implementation is not simply about providing the right software tools; just as important are the skills of the team that architect and deliver the solution. If you are an organisation considering the implementation of Lean ERP; investigating discrete areas of the functionality to enhance your traditional approach or already a customer using Microsoft Dynamics AX and perhaps looking to adopt the lean functionality; a Microsoft Dynamics Partner interested in achieving the certification required to sell, support and implement the Lean solutions; a Lean Professional interested in helping others by sharing practical experiences or just simply interested in learning what Lean has to offer, then we would encourage you to become a member of this lean community by visiting www.leancentreofexcellence.com to sign up for free membership. Becoming a member of this community will provide you with a place to ask questions, share your experiences, access the latest materials and ultimately expand your knowledge.
