According to Synchrono Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing Includes Synchronizing People Process and Materials

Synchrono recently released a paper redefining modern demand-driven methods to drive end-to-end production flow and position for the Factory of the Future. Today’s manufacturers are competing at different levels and with increasing demands for customization and shorter lead times. Synchrono addresses the three key strategies driving modern demand-driven manufacturing: digitize, synchronize, and visualize.

  • Digitize. Making the right data accessible and putting it in the hands of the right people for smart manufacturing decision-making. Digitizing processes will provide benefits through automation, but a very powerful bi-product is the wealth of data collected that can be leveraged without any additional work.
  • Synchronize. Aligning people, processes, materials, machines and data at an order level to drive end-to-end production flow. Synchrono focuses on the entire value stream, synchronizing the processes of ordering, scheduling, material replenishment, and production with the resources necessary to execute the order.
  • Visualize. Instantly communicate changes in demand and priorities to all – creating a single version of the truth. Visibility not only helps to simplify complexity and manage variability, but supports the movement of all relevant KPIs in the right direction.

To Synchrono, modern demand-driven manufacturing serves to “synchronize the supply chain from the factory out,” which simply means, if a manufacturer understands its internal manufacturing capacity and capabilities – and has the systems in place to provide actionable data – supply chain variability can potentially be eliminated through real-time communication and visibility.

About Synchrono

Synchrono ( 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.
