Synchrono eKanban System can drive a competitive advantage by enabling work flow efficiencies. In this fourth white paper in the series Synchrono explores Pull-based Kanban systems. In this paper, Synchrono looks at the competitive edge that manufacturers gain by being not only devoted to driving flow and eliminating waste, but also enabling their organizations to become best-in-class by using Pull and eKanban technology.
Manufacturers are committed to providing valuable opportunities to their customers and, because of their Lean and continuous improvement efforts, these companies are equipped to increase their effectiveness, productivity, and capacity while achieving a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
Modern manufacturing is using automation and technology in new and ever-changing ways. Significant competitive advantage is gained through these advancements. Enhanced visibility and on-time automation provides more “bandwidth” within the production cycle because demand signals no longer need a fulfillment phase and are instantly causing replenishment to occur. Amazon.com now has same-day delivery based on these systems, and its fulfillment processes are the envy of competitors.

Synchrono (www.synchrono.com) demand-driven manufacturing software synchronizes complex manufacturing environments in real-time, to drive business results. For almost twenty years, Synchrono systems have helped discrete manufacturers, engineer-to-order manufacturers, and others manage constraints, improve flow and drive on-time production.
When integrated under the Synchrono Demand-Driven Manufacturing Platform, lean and demand-driven initiatives achieve new levels of excellence, transforming businesses by synchronizing people, processes, machines, materials, and data to drive production flow from order inception to delivery.
The award winning Synchrono Demand-Driven Manufacturing Platform offers five system components, including a planning, scheduling, and production management system and ekanban software for real-time inventory replenishment and supply chain collaboration. The Synchrono Platform has a unique a data collection, historian, and automated workflow engine along with an application that generates automatic alerts, escalation and action plans to minimize disruptions. Perhaps most importantly, this technology platform also includes a real-time visual factory information system.
Synchrono systems allow for the simultaneous exchange of data across systems and resources, the ability to respond to constraints and changes in demand as they occur, and to predict, pre-empt, and prioritize issues. The Platform components may be implemented independently or collectively to enable the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), providing an unprecedented foundation for communication, collaboration, and continuous improvement.
