As part of optimization to give you better experience with this blog, I have replaced the default feed from taitran.com/blog/feed to http://feeds.feedburner.com/TaiTran
What does it mean?
It means when you click on the RSS button on your browser, you will be redirect to the FeedBurner RSS feed without going to the default WordPress feed.
What’s the advantage of the FeedBurner feed?
While the default feed only contains blog entries, the FeedBurner feed aggregates well-selected Business and Technology news from multiple trusted sources.
Occasionally, interesting presentations and slide shows are also introduced via the FeedBurner feed.
These resources are only offered to FeedBurner feed subscribers, and is not otherwise available.
If you had previously subscribed to the default WordPress feed, kindly spend a few seconds to update the feed address to http://feeds.feedburner.com/TaiTran
If you have not subscribed to the FREE updates, please feel free to do so with your own RSS Reader or via email update.
If you have subscribed via email, that is the FeedBurner feed already and you don’t have to update anything.
http://feeds.feedburner.com/TaiTran is always available for you.

Manufacturing management process

to meet demand.
5.2. APS Characteristics
How APS is different from traditional planning:
The 2 diagrams concludes: APS process is simultaneous, thus is more scalable and optimal and usually gives more accurate results.
The cycles of APS allow throughput times and inventory to be reduced.
APS is often built on finite capacity scheduling.
5.3. When to apply APS
- Make-To-Order (as distinct from make-to-stock) manufacturing
- Capital-intensive production processes, where plant capacity is constrained
- Products ‘competing’ for plant capacity: where many different products are produced in each facility
- Products that require a large number of components or manufacturing tasks
- Production necessitates frequent schedule changes which can not be predicted before the event
5.4. APS & ERP Integration
The end result of APS: the Schedule is passed to Sales/Customer Service. Together with Orders, this Schedule is then input to ERP.
