Synchrono® Presents Get Lean on Inventory at IndustryWeek Expo
Synchrono®, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software and sponsor of the Manufacturing Technology Strategies track at the IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo, will lead a special session at this year’s conference:

Get Lean on Inventory
  • Date/Time: Wednesday, May 9 at 11:15 AM 
  • Presenters: Jim Shore, Principal at Quality Lean Solutions; John Maher, Vice President of Product Strategy at Synchrono 

Lean manufacturing practitioners Jim Shore and John Maher will lead the session using case study examples of how eKanban technology produces a near immediate ROI, plus proven strategies for introducing Lean process change, engaging suppliers and using system data to drive focused continuous improvement. They will also explore how eKanban technology addresses Lean’s 8 forms of waste and how manufacturers are using the technology to overcome the following key challenges associated with inventory:
  • Too much inventory on hand 
  • Stock-outs disrupting production 
  • Lack of visibility with suppliers 
  • Variability in demand 
  • Frequent expediting 

With a focus on Lean manufacturing and continuous improvement, the IndustryWeek conference is dedicated to helping manufacturers improve their operations. “Manufacturing leaders attend this event to learn about innovations in technology and applications of Lean thinking from peers and practitioners who have put them into play”, notes Pam Bednar, Synchrono Vice President of Marketing. Get Lean on Inventory attendees will receive practical, proven advice and learn how to:
  • Drive Lean results and more focused continuous improvement with data from eKanban technology 
  • Identify signs that they may be at the tipping point if using a manual (physical card) Kanban process today 
  • Find the hidden benefits of eKanban that will strengthen their business and produce a healthy ROI 

In addition to educational sessions, the event features plant tours, keynote presentations, networking events and an exhibit hall; all aimed at providing manufacturing professionals with ideas they can take back to their facilities and implement to improve their operations.

More information about the IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo and the Get Lean on Inventory session is available on the event website. For more information on Synchrono, visit www.synchrono.com or the Synchrono booth #731 at the Expo.
