Synchrono® paper reveals how Lean manufacturers are dramatically reducing waste from scrapped materials

eKanban software reduces waste
Hiding behind every dollar of scrapped inventory are several more dollars lost in storage, productivity, customer satisfaction and potential revenue.

Synchrono®, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software and synchronization technology, today released a new InSync paper, Get Lean on Scrap. The paper establishes a link between eKanban technology and reduced levels of material waste.

The method of Lean Manufacturing is based on the relentless elimination of waste in manufacturing and ongoing continuous process improvement. For many, material scrap is an expensive form of waste; costing more than the material itself. Consider that hiding behind every dollar of scrapped inventory are several more dollars lost in storage, productivity, customer satisfaction and potential revenue.

Get Lean on Scrap outlines various scenarios which cause scrap and how many manufacturers implementing eKanban solutions to reduce inventory costs, experience the added cost benefit of scrap mitigation. Specifically, the paper addresses how eKanban software reduces waste associated with:

  • Materials damaged during storage
  • Materials damaged during handling
  • Expired materials

The paper also references customer case studies where waste elimination measures have been applied using SyncKanban eKanban software from Synchrono.
