Lean and ERP don’t mix…mostly

Rick Bohan

I know just enough about ERP (and MRP and MRP II) to be dangerous.  Maybe not even that much.  I do know that lean does better and more easily what ERP/MRP tries to do but generally gets wrong: creating smooth flow and a consistent, effective production schedule, even in the face of continual change.

My friend Becky Morgan knows a lot more than I do.  And she says it all better than I can.  Here’s the proof.
