St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/15/2016 -- Manufacturers are trying to drive business based on far too many metrics; metrics that often conflict and put employees in a state of oscillation between contradicting goals. Pam Bednar, VP of Marketing for Synchrono shared, "Manufacturers must create a distinction between operations metrics reports versus actionable metrics." Synchrono was recently profiled in Automation Media magazine in a feature article authored by Manufacturing journalist Thomas R. Cutler.
Bednar noted, "Getting closer to data through synchronization ultimately allows manufacturers to apply a more critical focus to continuous improvement efforts. Technology like Synchrono uses analytics gained from monitoring machine and materials data to pinpoint quality issues that negatively impact flow. Data does not lie and the volumes of truths that a synchronized enterprise can lead to a continuous improvement program."

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 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.
