St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/19/2018 -- Synchrono, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, released its 2018 Top Ten Trends in Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing. One trend is strategic sales & operations planning (S&OP) and business process planning. Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturers use S&OP tools to model, develop, and compare scenarios for aligning supply and capacity against projected demand. The Report also notes that Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturers are changing the S&OP paradigm from a short-term outlook to a longer-term (months to years).
Analysts covering manufacturing have noted a sharp increase in inquiries around S&OP (as well as the digital supply chain). The Report suggests this may be manufacturers responding to the economic recovery with the desire to be more strategic in planning investments for the organization. To corroborate, over the last year Synchrono experienced more interest in S&OP solutions from multi-national organizations looking to roll up their projected demand for greater negotiation power with their suppliers - and to determine how and where to standardize on production technologies.

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.
