Continuous improvement 4 ways with eKanban software
...the software collects and curates data, making it ripe for driving Lean continuous improvement strategies.

Synchrono®, the leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software and synchronization technologies today released a new thought-leadership paper for Lean Manufacturers looking to continuously improve inventory management in their organizations.

The method of Lean Manufacturing is based on the relentless elimination of waste in manufacturing and efforts toward engaging in ongoing continuous process improvement. SyncKanban is Cloud-based eKanban (electronic Kanban) software that works to help manufacturers reduce waste by optimizing inventory levels through automated replenishment, establishing inventory sizing suggestions and facilitating greater communication and visibility with suppliers. In doing so, the software collects and curates data, making it ripe for driving Lean continuous improvement strategies.

The new paper, 4 Ways SyncKanban eKanban Software Supports Continuous Improvement, outlines how unique capabilities and system-generated data from SyncKanban software is being used on an ongoing basis to reduce system waste and promote the continuous improvement process. The 4 strategies outlined in the paper are:

1.    K-Loop® (Kanban Loop) Sizing
2.    Real-time Synchronization to Supply and Demand
3.    Inventory Buffer Management
4.    Supplier Performance Management

These strategies are detailed in 4 Ways SyncKanban eKanban Software Supports Continuous Improvement, which is available for download at http://www.synchrono.com/resources. SyncKanban client case studies with measurable results are also available on the Synchrono website.

On a related note, Synchrono® will be presenting Get Lean on Inventory at the upcoming IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo, in Raleigh, NC on May 9th. The session will provide Lean practitioners with real-world examples of how eKanban technologies are addressing costly challenges – and waste – associated with inventory management.
