Synchrono Highlights Real-Time and Supply Chain Visibility for Moldmaking Manufacturers


St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/27/2017 -- Synchrono, the leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, recently was featured in MoldMaking Technology magazine. The process of manufacturing molds is often highly automated and becoming more and more digitized to collect vast amounts of data and enable the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The challenge with all this data is the ability to access the right data at the right time. The ability to do such will help mold manufacturers work smarter and more competitively, impacting not only key performance indicators (KPI) used to evaluate the success of a company, but more forward-thinking initiatives that keep production moving and downtime to a minimum. This entails real-time data sharing across machines, tools, sensors and systems—anything that collects useful data.

Moldmakers require lighter weight, more flexible and scalable software systems that can take this aggregated data and transform it into performance-improving information that can easily be accessed and visualized. Pam Bednar, VP at Synchrono says, "For many moldmakers real-time data collaboration and visibility are critical to effective global supply chain management. Real-time visibility means a single screen where they can view real-time replenishment, inventory and order status, and provide similar views to their customers and partners."

MoldMaking Technology (MMT) has been addressing the complete lifecycle of the design, manufacture and maintenance of a mold—from design to first shot—since its launch in 1998. MMT remains committed to bringing their audience what is new and what works in mold manufacturing by focusing on the needs of today's mold builders.

About Synchrono
Synchrono ( 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. When integrated under the Synchrono Demand-Driven Manufacturing Platform, lean and demand-driven initiatives achieve 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 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. 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.

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.
