Synchrono taps Savigent technology to help extend its demand-driven platform to manufacturing operations.
Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn, September 18, 2013 – Savigent Software, specializing in event-driven manufacturing operations management software, and Synchrono, a leader in demand-driven manufacturing software, today announced that they have signed an agreement outlining an expanded technology partnership. Under the new agreement, Synchrono furthers its commitment to license technology from the Savigent Catalyst™ product suite.
The Savigent suite includes event-driven manufacturing operations management software that addresses challenges related to workflow automation, real-time data collection and analysis, and systems integration. “Our solutions complement those of Synchrono very well in ways that will deliver tremendous value to manufacturers looking to synchronize their entire operations – from the shop-floor to the top floor – and provide complete transparency across the plant,” notes David Wicker, Savigent CEO.
The Synchrono portfolio includes demand-driven supply chain management software that synchronizes planning, scheduling and execution and an electronic kanban system for pull-based inventory replenishment. Synchrono solutions help manufacturers manage constraints, increase production flow and drive on-time delivery.
Technology licensed from the Savigent Catalyst suite allows Synchrono to extend its platform to the machine and work cell levels of the plant. This will enable the synchronization and monitoring of resources, materials and labor, creating instant action plans to address events that could impact quality or production. Of the added technology, Synchrono CEO David Dehne commented, “Extending our platform to the machine, along with the ability to aggregate data across the Synchrono product portfolio and external systems, will give our customers a deeper level of reporting and analysis to further drive flow and increase capacity – everything will be synchronized in real-time. The market has asked for this capability and with help from Savigent, Synchrono is uniquely positioned to deliver.”
Both Synchrono and Savigent software systems incorporate Lean principles to help manufacturers better manage constraints and promote continuous improvement through greater visibility and real-time communications. With the integration of Savigent technology into the Synchrono platform, manufacturers can take Lean to a new level; connecting people, methods, materials, machines – and data – in real-time, through a single fluid system.
