Synchrono Systems Included in Gartner Hype Cycle for Supply Chain Planning

Synchrono, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, announced their inclusion in the Gartner report, Hype Cycle for Supply Chain Planning. The report will be presented at the annual Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, May 23-25, 2017.

As a sponsor and exhibitor at the Conference, Synchrono will be demonstrating solutions included in the Hype Cycle report. The Hype Cycle for Supply Chain Planning provides supply chain and IT professionals insight into various supply chain planning capabilities and technologies; serving as a valuable guide for those looking to upgrade or transform their supply chains to support today’s increasingly complex and digital enterprises. Through its Demand-Driven Manufacturing Platform, Synchrono provides solutions supporting various capabilities along the Hype Cycle for Supply Chain Planning spectrum. More specifically, the company was singled out in two key categories:

Demand-Pull Respond Planning and Scheduling – The ability to signal short-term replenishments and orders based on actual consumption, rather than a forecast.

Manufacturing (Production) Scheduling – Technology that translates an operations plan into a set of granular activities required to fulfill a production order.

Synchrono demand-based systems support both these Hype Cycle categories – and then some. Synchrono synchronizes planning, scheduling along with execution – aligning all activities, materials and resources required to fulfill an order to achieve end-to-end production flow. Gartner reports on supply chain execution technologies in a separate Hype Cycle.

Synchrono will be demonstrating SyncManufacturing, planning, scheduling and execution system; SyncKanban, pull-based replenishment and supply chain collaboration software; SyncView manufacturing visualization and communication software; and more, in booth 516 at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference in Phoenix, Arizona May 23-25.
