Synchrono Features Demand Driven Manufacturing in Upcoming IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference

Synchrono will be featured in the upcoming IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo from May 8-10 in Raleigh, NC at booth 731. John Maher, VP of Product Strategy at Synchrono and Jim Shore, Principal of Quality Lean Solutions will be presenting a session titled, “Get Lean on Inventory” on Wednesday, May 9 from 11:15 am – 12:15 pm.  

Maher and Shore will address common manufacturing challenges of too much inventory, stock outs disrupting production, and lack of visibility with suppliers. Attendees will learn how eKanban technology can help to right-size inventory and automate replenishment, even in highly complex, multi-plant environments. These lean manufacturing experts will provide case study examples of eKanban technology producing a near immediate ROI, plus proven strategies for introducing lean process change, engaging suppliers and using system data to drive focused continuous improvement.

Maher’s expertise includes incorporating lean and demand-driven strategies into manufacturing organizations to help improve flow, manage constraints and drive on-time production; ultimately leading to increased customer satisfaction and profitability.
