Synchrono, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, released its 2018 Top Ten Trends in Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing. Manufacturers continue to invest in technologies to transform their environment through digitization, synchronization, and ubiquitous visibility. Increasing numbers of manufacturers are taking advantage of more flexible and highly configurable cloud technologies that allow them to affordably layer on value-added capabilities, rather than “rip-and-replace” expensive enterprise systems.
A layered approach goes hand-in-hand with the lean and continuous improvement principles inherent in modern demand-driven manufacturing. Layering technology allows manufacturers to approach transformation pragmatically and achieve significant wins. Layer technology fixes what is broken first (manual processes, lack of visibility, inability to access the right data) and address wasteful practices bogging down operations such as unplanned downtime and excess inventory).
The list is based on interactions with hundreds of manufacturers and industry experts – addressing challenges, supporting innovation, and introducing technologies associated with manufacturing digitization, visibility and synchronization.

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 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.
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.
