Synchrono Highlights Lean at Successful IndustryWeek Manufacturing and Technology Conference

Synchrono featured a well-attended session titled, “Getting Lean on Inventory” at the IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo in Raleigh, NC earlier in the month. John Maher, VP of Product Strategy at Synchrono and Jim Shore, Principal of Quality Lean Solutions presented the session.

Maher and Shore addressed the common manufacturing challenges of too much inventory, stock outs disrupting production, and lack of visibility with suppliers to a well-attended session. Attendees learned how eKanban technology can help to right-size inventory and automate replenishment, even in highly complex, multi-plant environments.

Maher’s expertise includes incorporating lean and demand-driven strategies into manufacturing organizations to help improve flow, manage constraints and drive on-time production; ultimately leading to increased customer satisfaction and profitability.
