Maintaining In-Time Delivery Performance Possible with SyncManufacturing by Synchrono

Synchrono, the leader of demand-driven manufacturing software, was selected by Pyrotek, a fast growing ETO (Engineered-to-Order) manufacturer. With Synchrono SyncManufacturing software, Pyrotek synchronized production with demand, driving on-time delivery, and increased throughput.

Pyrotek is a leading international company supplying aluminum, foundry, glass, zinc, steel, noise control and hearth customers with performance improving technical products, integrated processing systems and consulting services worldwide. Privately owned since 1956, Pyrotek offers industry-leading technical expertise and global resources with 66 locations in 31 countries.

Pyrotek’s rapid growth made it increasingly challenging to plan a production schedule that would maintain any reasonable on-time delivery performance. The company required a planning and scheduling system that would automate the production process, align their resources and adapt in real-time to changes in demand. To provide this level of control, the system had to effectively synchronize their data, people, materials and machines – all the resources key to driving flow throughout manufacturing and the extended supply chain.  Pyrotek was also committed to their ERP (enterprise resource planning) investment and wanted a system that would integrate with it to exchange real-time order information.

SyncManufacturing, demand-driven production planning, scheduling and execution software is a very powerful tool that drives flow from order inception to production delivery. Using SyncManufacturing software, Pyrotek planners went from constantly updating spreadsheets that would quickly become obsolete to working more proactively with their increased capacity.
