St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/26/2018 -- Synchrono, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, released its 2018 Top Ten Trends in Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing. One 2018 trend Synchrono sees for demand-driven manufacturers is outsourcing or subcontracting parts of the process to others who can do it faster, better and/or cheaper. The Report notes that the opening of economies and trade routes around the world and advancements in transportation technologies have overcome many of the logistical challenges to outsourcing.
An outsourcing study found that 32% of manufacturers are outsourcing at least 50% of their processes - and attributed real-time visibility and collaboration as keys to success. Manufacturers who outsource part or all of their processes to others need to find ways to synchronize efforts between entities, most of which probably take a different approach to managing operations and almost certainly use different systems. Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturers are leveraging web-based portals and other Cloud-based technologies to enable real-time visibility and synchronization with outsourcing partners, enhancing both collaboration capabilities and overall performance.

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.
The award winning Synchrono 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.
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.
