St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/14/2018 -- Synchrono, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, released its 2018 Top Ten Trends in Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing. One trend is enterprise synchronization technologies, viewed as the next wave of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The key to understanding how the IIoT can benefit manufacturers lies in understanding that the "things" the IIoT connects include equipment, processes, data and people. The first wave of IIoT implementations focused on collecting data and analyzing it for insights. The next step is to synchronize sources to not only make the data collectively visible, but to apply relevant context to it to drive flow and take immediate, appropriate action when and where required.
Over the course of the year, Synchrono has been responding to an increasing number enterprise-level requests for synchronization in order to provide a real-time, single version of the truth for order status, priorities, production schedules, replenishment and more across multiple facilities, supplier networks and outsourced/contract manufacturers.

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.
