Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/08/2016 -- Ultriva by Upland shared how Ingersoll Rand's Trane division achieved better communication with its suppliers. The resulting inventory visibility helped to keep its continuous-flow manufacturing lines humming.
Continuous-flow manufacturing requires delivery of replenishment parts to the factory just ahead of the rolling assembling line. Tight coordination between the manufacturer and its suppliers is critical, and there is no room for miscommunication. Ingersoll Rand, parent of the air conditioning and heating brands Trane and American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning, set up an online, collaborative supply chain portal in 2008 with Ultriva. The Trane business unit uses the portal as a common communication platform with its suppliers and to obtain the end-to-end supply chain visibility that is essential for just-in-time replenishment.
