Demand Driven Manufacturing Metrics by Synchrono Measures What Matters
St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/19/2016 -- The Push-based metrics of the past worked well—until manufacturers had to react rapidly to new and emerging customer demands. Demand-driven factories change virtually all their metrics because previous measures were based on local efficiencies and push philosophies, not pull-based, demand-driven methods focused on actual customer orders. When a manufacturer synchronizes its processes to visibly follow the customer demand signal through the supply chain, the metrics change—for the benefit of the customer.
The Demand-Driven Manufacturing Metrics for Action white paper addresses the key elements of demand, or pull-based manufacturing: Managing constraints and synchronizing activities to improve production flow and, ultimately, throughput. These elements are the basis for the Metrics for Action. Synchrono also offers a Metrics for Action Guide that describes each metric, defines how it is measured and provides suggestions on how to improve results.

Synchrono (http://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. Everyone at every level of a manufacturing organization has access to one version of the truth with a dynamic view of what is happening at every stage of the manufacturing process; from order inception through production and delivery.
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.
