Synchrono®, the leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, today released its 2018 Top Ten Trends in Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing. The list is based on interactions with hundreds of manufacturers and industry experts addressing challenges, innovation and technologies associated with demand or pull-based manufacturing environments.
Demand-Driven Manufacturing is a method of manufacturing primarily used in discrete engineer-to-order (ETO), make-to-order (MTO, build-to-order (BTO) and make-to-stock (MTS) manufacturing environments where production is based on actual demand (orders or consumption) rather than a forecast. Demand-Driven Manufacturing combines the best of Lean Manufacturing, Constraints Management and Six Sigma principles to synchronize activities, improve production flow, eliminate waste, and drive on time delivery.
Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturers take these principles to new levels. In continuously improving their operations, they create more opportunities for innovation. This year’s report topics include synchronization as the next step in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), why many manufacturers are taking a layered approach to technology, the reasons for adopting a manufacturing system of record (MSOR) and more.
The 2018 Top Ten Trends in Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturing report includes descriptions and real-world examples of each trend. The report is available for online download. To learn more about Modern Demand Driven Manufacturing, visit http://www.synchrono.com/
