Digitizing the Shop Floor Makes the List of Synchrono 2017 Top Ten Trends in Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing
St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/04/2017 -- Synchrono, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, released its 2017 Top Ten Trends in Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing. The list is based on interactions with hundreds of manufacturers and industry experts addressing challenges, innovation and technologies associated with manufacturing digitization, visibility and synchronization.
Synchrono sees digitizing the shop floor as one of the top trends for Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing. Enabling a fully digitized, interconnected enterprise is daunting, particularly when thinking about the vast amounts of data housed in hundreds (if not thousands) of various assets in and around the plant floor as well as in different business systems across the enterprise. While many manufacturers are diligently routing data to massive data warehouses or data historians, most cannot easily - let alone quickly - access the data they need when they need it.
The value proposition of the Internet of Things (IoT) is ubiquitous, real-time data sharing across machines, tools, sensors and systems – anything that collects useful data. The ability to do such will help manufacturers work smarter (e.g., enable Smart Manufacturing) and more competitively, impacting not only core KPIs, but more forward-thinking initiatives that will keep production moving and downtime to a minimum.

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. Synchrono delivers a competitive edge.
