Role of Smart Data in Demand Driven Manufacturing Reviewed by Synchrono


St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/06/2017 -- 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 includes Smart Data, Smart Decisions – Managing Big and Not So Big Data, as a 2017 Top Trend in Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing. The trend is based on the fact that as manufacturers become more digitized, they are collecting vast amounts of data. The challenge rests in the ability to quickly access the right data when needed to make instant, informed decisions. Synchrono cites one client with over 200 disparate databases and another with multiple data warehouses. Both say these sources are ineffective because they can't access the right data when they need it. Gartner research supports this, reporting that on average, 70% of factory data goes unused. In managing big and not so big data, digitization is one thing; accessibility is another.

Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturers require easy to use tools developed for manufacturing. Tools that empower everyone in the organization to conduct analyses and create reports and dashboards with data aggregated from multiple sources.
