Synchrono, a leader in demand-driven manufacturing software, today issued a new white paper addressing a key challenge faced by today’s manufacturing leaders: the need for real time data and analytics for more informed – and timely – decision-making.
Many of today’s discrete manufacturers are overcoming the challenges of legacy push-based systems by turning to pull-based eKanban systems that focus on throughput and flow and result in a reduction in inventory and associated costs. The new white paper, Gaining Clarity: Drive Productivity, Flow and Profit with Data that Matters, explores Kanban systems from a management perspective, detailing the benefits of a more predictable environment with the decision-making power gained through deeper access to real time data and analytics.
Targeted towards manufacturing operations and supply chain professionals, Gaining Clarity provides insight on how to:
- Gain greater visibility across the entire supply chain
- Manage inventory waste and obsolescence
- Move from a forecast and inventory focused process to a customer and consumption focused process
Gaining Clarity is the second in a series of papers exploring the nature of Pull-based manufacturing systems and specifically, Kanban systems. The focus of the first edition, Gaining Control: Exploring Push v. Pull Manufacturing, was at the system, or workflow level. Subsequent papers will review Pull/Kanban systems from a customer, supplier and competitive standpoint.
