Although typically thought of as an artifact of legacy computing, batch processes remain vital to today’s real-time enterprises. Behind the real time systems that power the real time enterprise, such as customer order fulfillment, account management, supply chain scheduling and optimization, or financial trading systems, are regularly-updated back office business systems. Over the years, batch technology has evolved from script-based automation to rules or policy-driven workload automation.

"Lean" is defined as a process to improve manufacturing and service operations, reduce waste, improve quality and drive down cost. While many packaging companies have embraced a number of Lean Manufacturing concepts, many have yet to fully realize the benefits of a fully-integrated Lean environment. Leveraging an ERP system that embraces "Lean" principles and incorporates industry specific best practices can facilitate and support the process. In this white paper, learn how lean manufacturing can apply to printing and packaging, and how an ERP system fits into the process.
