Synchrono, the leader in Demand-Driven Manufacturing and synchronization technology, works with leading lean manufacturing organizations to develop a strategy that focuses on enabling a data-driven culture and encompasses processes, technology, change management, organizational structure, a clear road map and other performance-related deliverables.
According to John Maher, Vice President of Product Strategy for Synchrono, the supply chain needs to support a company’s broader strategy. “Fundamental to any strategy is serving one’s customers in ways the customer values. Without a performant supply chain, a company is limited in what they can achieve because they need to be able to ultimately deliver to their customers.” Maher notes that location of distribution hubs, manufacturing plants, SLAs with customers, supplier sourcing and management, manufacturing capability, etc. are all important digitization, synchronization and visibility decisions about strategy.
Whatever strategy a manufacturer employs, the ultimate goal is to maximize production flow and synchronize all elements across the extended supply chain. This is achieved by getting closer to demand and relying less on a forecast. A performant supply chain that maximizes flow, minimizes lead time and minimizes cost is what gives manufacturers flexibility in their broader strategy.
To drive this strategy, Maher recommends that leaders in operations, finance, IT and more establish and support of Center of Excellence around universal visibility and analytics that serves as the change agent for business results.
“Manufacturing leaders must embrace a data-driven culture and new technologies that enable ubiquitous supply chain visibility and collaboration”, notes Maher. Best practices and continuous process improvement requires executives to learn and leverage technology to automate and accelerate the move to a data-driven culture. Executives must quickly move up the learning curve on new supply chain visibility technologies and make timely investments.
