Synchrono Explores Push v Pull Manufacturing Improving Productivity and Profitability

Synchrono, a leader in demand-driven manufacturing software, addresses improving productivity and profitability of manufacturing operations with a Kanban solution in the whitepaper titled, “Gaining Control: Exploring Push v. Pull Manufacturing.” The whitepaper covers:


  • Push v Pull Planning and Execution Systems in Manufacturing
  • Plan-Driven Push-Based Systems
  • Customer Order-Driven, Pull-Based Kanban Systems Manual and Electronic Kanban


This paper explores the nature of Push and Pull systems and more specifically, manual and eKanban systems within a Pull environment. eKanban systems offer a tremendous upside in cost savings, organization-wide visibility, increased capacity and on time performance. eKanban systems can offer control and predictability while fostering a culture of moving from supply chain and manufacturing management working in the system to a mode of working on the system.

About Synchrono


Synchrono ( 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.


When integrated under the Synchrono Demand-Driven Manufacturing Platform, lean and demand-driven initiatives achieve new levels of excellence, transforming businesses by synchronizing people, processes, machines, materials, and data to drive production flow from order inception to delivery.


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.  


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.
