"Manufacturers want to eliminate waste in their enterprises, compete leaner and set the stage for profit and prosperity through a Pull-based environment."
St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
Synchrono®, a leader in demand-driven manufacturing software, today announced the release of a new whitepaper: Common Barriers to Moving from Push to Pull Manufacturing. The paper is the fifth in a series exploring pull-based Kanban and eKanban manufacturing systems.
The white paper addresses a problem many manufacturing leaders face today: How to move from their current state towards the enhanced control, improved clarity and confident decision-making enabled through a Pull-based environment. The authors explain how implementing an eKanban system can provide these rewards and offer guidance on how to overcome some of the common barriers in the path towards transitioning to a Pull-based environment, including:
- Leadership turnover
- Implementation fatigue
Manufacturers who take advantage of this complimentary download will gain a clearer picture of why – and how - leading companies are instituting Pull-based systems to gain greater profit and efficiency, including:
- How to align suppliers with demand
- Tips for managing change and maintaining momentum
- Using data to build a case for moving beyond the status quo
- Leveraging more nimble Cloud-based systems to avoid implementation exhaustion
The white paper validates its position with a case study showing how Dynisco, a Roper Industries company, drove better inventory, materials management and operational efficiency by implementing an eKanban system.
“Manufacturers want to eliminate waste in their enterprises, compete leaner and set the stage for profit and prosperity through a Pull-based environment. But how do they get there?” said John Maher, Synchrono vice president of product strategy. “This white paper helps provide direction towards those goals.”
