Lean Manufacturing Synchrono eKanban Pull-Based Inventory Replenishment Software for Supply Chain Collaboration


St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/11/2016 -- Most discrete manufacturers are willing to admit that their Lean Manufacturing programs are not as effective as possible. Rarely is throughput keeping manufacturers ahead of the competition and inventory frequently is not right-sized. SyncKanban software is an eKanban or electronic manufacturing Kanban system that keeps automated, instantaneous supply chain signals moving through a manufacturing organization at lightning speed. Automating supplier, manufacturing, and transfers, kanbans eliminates waste.

SyncKanban enables real-time demand signaling, improves visibility throughout a manufacturing organization and optimizes inventory levels by instantly tracking lead- and replenishment-times. Automated inventory replenishment signals increase efficiency and eliminate accidental manual entry errors. They free supply managers from the replenishment loop so they have more time available to focus on value-added responsibilities, like new supply contracts and strategic sourcing.

SyncKanban software bests manual manufacturing Kanban systems because it responds instantly to changes in demand, maintaining truly minimal inventories. For many clients, there has been as much as a 50% reduction. The additional benefits are improved cash flow and increased capacity.

About Synchrono
Synchrono ( demand-driven manufacturing software synchronizes complex manufacturing environments in real-time, to drive business results.

For almost twenty years, Synchrono systems has 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 are taken to 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 includes 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 provides 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.

The Platform components may be implemented independently or collectively to enable the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and an unprecedented foundation for communication, collaboration, and continuous improvement. The value proposition of Synchrono allows 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.
