eBECS is dedicated to improving performance across the business by the use of ‘Lean Thinking’ throughout the extended supply chain. This is because a Lean enterprise can help to enable profitable changes in the use of time and resources, both internally and externally.
The Lean Enterprise Institute defines a Lean Enterprise as, “A business system for organising and managing product development, operations, suppliers, and customer relations. Business and other organizations use lean principles, practices, and tools to create precise customer value - goods and services with higher quality and fewer defects - with less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time than the traditional system of mass production.”
We call this “Lean ERP”
Microsoft Dynamics AX is the first genuine Lean ERP solution that is true to the principles of Lean. The solution provides comprehensive Lean functionality from the simple use of Kanbans through to sophisticated Lean Accounting concepts, yet at the same time allows it to co-exist and work with the traditional MRP world.
eBECS understands that the majority of solutions within the supply chain are complex and are often based on a ‘push’ approach to manufacturing. By contrast, eBECS has expertise in the removal of waste from all aspects of the organisation together with specific solutions on defining value, establishing flow and running an enterprise based on ‘pull’ techniques.
eBECS combines traditional manufacturing functions along with powerful Lean capabilities that deliver true performance improvements that can support and sustain a Lean enterprise.
Increasingly, companies are turning to Lean thinking to provide a competitive edge to their operations, particularly where the competition emanates from low labour cost operations in the Far East. However, technology is only part of the answer for those organisations looking to embrace the lean methodology.
Such is eBECS’ commitment to innovations within Lean thinking that Microsoft Corporation acquired its Dynamics AX lean manufacturing module – formerly known as ‘eBECS Lean Enterprise for Microsoft Dynamics AX’ – and incorporated it into the Dynamics AX core offering. This module allows manufacturing customers to optimise processes and connect and integrate the entire supply chain from the customer to the supply partners, and to support eBECS is a specialist in Dynamics AX, however it is knowing how and where to apply the software within an organisation that is of paramount importance.
eBECS’ has always focused on enhancing the Microsoft Dynamics AX product to offer its clients a different way of meeting customer demand, yet at the same time providing the tangible business benefits that modern Lean techniques can offer.
