Synchrono, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, announced that it had, once again, been recognized as a Cool Vendor in Manufacturing Operations by the respected industry research and analyst group, Gartner.
Synchrono was first recognized as a Cool Vendor in 2011, based on the company’s initial software offering, SyncManufacturing (then called Adaptive Manufacturing). The product was highlighted for providing a closed-loop system, which synchronizes customer service (demand), planning and scheduling with shop floor execution. A patented scheduling algorithm sets the optimal pace for production resulting in heightened on-time delivery rates and often, increased capacity. Manufacturers using the software also gain granular levels of visibility, can respond instantly to changes in demand, and greatly reduce the complexity of the planning process.
According to Gartner sources, rarely do vendors receive the Cool Vendor distinction more than once. Yet in Cool Vendors in Manufacturing Operations, 2017 by Simon F. Jacobson, Vice President of the Supply Chain Research Organization at Gartner, Synchrono was once again highlighted, catching readers up on the manufacturing operations and supply chain solutions the company has introduced since 2011.
“It’s great to be recognized for our modern demand-driven approach and the technology that enables it”, notes Pam Bednar, Vice President of Marketing for Synchrono, “especially when supported with actual customer results.” The company has a collection of customer case studies quantifying results on their website.
Synchrono (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 Demand-Driven Manufacturing Platform 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. Everyone at every level of a manufacturing organization has access to one version of the truth with a dynamic view of what is happening at every stage of the manufacturing process; from order inception through production and delivery.
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.
