Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/16/2014 -- Narayan Laksham, founder and CEO of Ultriva, will be presenting at the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) of Silicon Valley on Thursday, July 10, 2014 from 11:30-1:00 pm (PST) in Cupertino, CA. Laksham will be addressing how part shortages affect production schedules and customer shipments, as well as charges of inventory reduction by management. Salient topics such as how well are suppliers performing and if business is encountering late and partial shipments will also be addressed. Laksham’s presentation will cover the importance of Supply Chain Visibility and how it results in improved inventory and service levels.
Attendees will learn what real-time visibility can do for their organization. Attendees will also understand how manufacturing companies can use their supply chain to improve service levels, streamline production and optimize inventory as well as how systems driven discipline in the supply chain leads to substantial continuous improvement.
Laksham has been committed to helping manufacturing companies collaborate with suppliers and gain true supply chain visibility. He is also a co-inventor of the “Inventory Optimization Tool,” that can identify parts best suited for Kanban replenishment and estimate the potential savings. During the last decade, he has visited over 150 manufacturing facilities worldwide to strategize on End to End Pull processes. He is the author of several articles including “When Push Comes to Pull, Kanban wins.”

Ultriva’s (http://www.ultriva.com) cloud-based platform leverages and seamlessly integrates with leading ERP and MRP systems, to deliver an end to end pull based replenishment model. Ultriva, based in Cupertino, CA, implemented a global demand driven manufacturing model by providing full visibility, scheduling, and sequencing of production of customer orders. The need for a collaborative transactional portal is essential and E2E (End to End) Pull allows large multi-national manufacturers to actively collaborate with customers for actual demand and synchronize with suppliers for replenishment. E2E Pull offers a better solution to balancing supply with customer demand through procurement strategies, materials and inventory policies tied to actual demand signals. Many suppliers want to provide sufficient service levels to customers and turn supply replenishment and synchronization into a competitive advantage. Ultriva was recently named one of the Great Supply Chain Projects of 2014 by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The company’s global footprint is increasing rapidly with implementations in wide variety of industry sectors and enterprises such as ATK, CareFusion, Emerson, Ingersoll Rand, McKesson, Magellan, Regal Beloit, Thermo Fisher and more.
