Ultriva Consumption Driven Software Featured in CIO Review Magazine
Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2014 -- Ultriva, the leader in collaborative supply chain solutions, was the feature cover story in the October issue of CIO Review magazine. This issue was a comprehensive review of best-practice manufacturing technology. Narayan Laksham, Ultriva’s founder and CEO explained how he applied lean principles to the supply chain processes and developed a solution that triumphs over the traditional Material Requirements Planning (MPR) systems and delivers more value. The article, authored by Raj Kumar, was titled, “Ultriva: Escalating Manufacturing Output Through Lean.”
According to Kumar, “Ultriva utilized ‘collaborative Kanban,’ to develop lean manufacturing and end to end pull supply chain solutions. In this quickly growing $10 billion supply chain industry, Ultriva focuses on the execution side of things, directly impacting the shop floor performance and effectively complementing existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems which are primarily forecast driven. Ultriva dwells in the demand-driven replenishment arena.”
Laksham explained, “We enable companies to transition from a forecast-driven business model to a demand-driven manufacturing model. Reduction of inventory has become a necessity and not an option in order to survive. The focus has shifted from inventory reduction to right size inventory. Ultriva promotes a consumption driven replenishment methodology, which ultimately means – producing exactly what the customer wants and not what the forecast says.”
