Calculate economic order quantity to minimizes total inventory holding costs and ordering costs.
EOQ is useful when demand for a product is constant over a particular range of time and when each new order is delivered in full at the point when your inventory reaches zero.
There is a fixed cost for each order placed, regardless of the number of units ordered. There is also a cost for each unit held in storage, commonly known as holding cost, sometimes expressed as a percentage of the purchase cost of the item.
Use EOQ to determine the optimal number of units to order such that you can minimize the total cost associated with the purchase, delivery and storage of the product.
If you have any suggestions for any future Economic Order Quantity iOS updates, please let us know!

The coating weight calculator is a universal iOS app for estimating dried coating weight as applied for printing and converting processes. Extremely useful for on-the-floor troubleshooting of doctor blade systems, gravure cylinders, coating recipes, and more!
1. Calculate coating weight in lbs./ream. based on engraving volumes, and coating recipes.
2. Create and store components of coating recipes by name, solids density, and solids percentage.
3. Define recipes by components and amounts.
4. Estimate material usage and consumption rates based on machine speeds, work order quantities, application widths.
5. Email calculator results to co-workers for collaboration or assist in problem solving activities.

The Life Cycle Cost iOS update includes a new beautiful interface that allows for quick and efficient LCC calculations. Life Cycle Cost (LCC, or also known as whole life cost), refers to the total cost of ownership over the life of an asset.
LCC is often used for option evaluation when procuring new assets and for decision-making to minimize whole-life costs throughout the life of an asset. It is also applied to comparisons of actual costs for similar asset types and as feedback into future design and acquisition decisions.
The Kanban Size iOS Update includes a new beautiful interface for quickly calculating the optimal bin size for kanban.
One of the main reasons for implementing Just in Time (JIT) as part of lean manufacturing is to reduce inventory. We use inventory to protect us against various problems in our processes such as:
Inefficient or unreliable manufacturing processes
Long changeovers or inconsistent setup times
Employees inadequately trained
By using Kanban Size, you can quickly estimate the appropriate bin size for your process! The Kanban Size app will also help you determine the total number of cards you’ll need going forward. Understanding your bin sizes can help reduce work-in-process items, and eliminate multiple types of waste in your processes.
Use this simple lean manufacturing utility to help kick start your inventory and flow path improvement opportunities!
5S Audit iOS update now includes a new beautiful interface and is optimized for iOS 7. We also knocked out a couple bugs that a few of our customers also pointed out.
It is a process designed to organize, clean and standardize the workplace, and instill a discipline required to keep it that way.
AutoLean’s 5S Audit app is the best way to benchmark your housekeeping performance. Ideal for manufacturing areas, offices, and work sites. When 5S is implemented, employees maintain their work area in a state of order and cleanliness, for simplifying their tasks, while sustaining and continuously improving their work environment.
Implementing 5S in your work areas will provide:
Higher safety levels
Higher morale from bright and clean workplaces
Increased product defect detection
Increased equipment failure detection
Identification of misplaced tools
Less “searching” waste
Less “motion” waste
Less worker frustration
Identification of excess or inadequate supply inventory
Using AutoLean’s 5S Audit app is an excellent way to monitor and track improvements of your 5S implementation.
Download the 5S Audit app today, and start identifying improvement opportunities with your production assets and work areas. Also let us know if you have any suggestions for improvement in future 5S Audit iOS Updates!
Takt is a universal iOS app for iPhone & iPad that will allow you quickly and effectively calculate takt time.
Perfect for any factory, production cell, system, or simple process!
Identify the rate your production cell needs to operate in order to produce JIT (Just-In-Time).
Simply provide the customer demand in units/day, and the production cell’s availability and you will be provided a takt time in seconds/unit. By using this simple app from AutoLean, you can understand the tempo or cadence of your manufacturing process.

Today we are releasing a Spare Parts Calculator iOS Update. In the update you’ll see an all new beautiful interface, that is not only easy to use but makes the calculation process a real process to work with.
The first step in the decision making process in building your parts store room for MRO is understanding if you need to keep the part in inventory. Many factors come into play when coming to a decision such as costs including downtime, lead-time, chance of equipment failure, and impact. When you consider all of these factors at once your decision model becomes very complex. This is where you need Spare Parts Calculator.
We do the exponential and probability density functions so you don’t have to. Based on your equipment maintenance conditions, asset life, and part costs you will be able to determine whether or not keeping the spare part in inventory is advisable.
Today we are announcing an OEE Monitor iOS update which brings one of leading products to version 2.0. It is by far the best way to calculate, track, and manage Overall Equipment Effectiveness on iPhone and iPad. We’ve added many new improvements to the app which we are sure your organization is going to enjoy. Among the improvements include:
Today we are announcing a new look and website for AutoLean. This is the beginning of our 5 year anniversary campaign! Stay in touch for new products and services which we will be releasing weekly over the next couple months. Thank you for your support!
