ERP manufacturing software integrates and automates all areas of business (materials and inventory, production, operations and sales, accounting and finance, etc.) in a company so that every department relies on a single database. This information hub delivers accurate, real-time data that is crucial to the manufacturing company.

Session Title: Powerful Shop Floor Scheduling Made Simple

Session Description:

“Why do manufacturers struggle to meet their promises for delivering to their customers on time? We examine the major causes of this, and then introduce a new approach to solve this issue. Protected Flow Manufacturing combines LEAN/TOC principles to simplify shop floor execution and planning, while at the same time ensuring that orders get to your customers on-time, in less time, every time.


Learn the 3 major misperceptions that cause poor delivery performance, and the 2 main concepts from LEAN and TOC that provide a new perception that increase flow.

Learn how Protected Flow Manufacturing leverages these concepts to reduce leadtimes and improve delivery performance while simplifying shop floor scheduling (execution and planning).

Walk through a simulation of Protected Flow Manufacturing to see how it works in a real custom manufacturing shop.

Innovant engages Synergy’s Strategic Business Services Group…

World-class office furniture company, Innovant, engages Synergy’s Strategic Business Services Group for an operational business assessment and realizes measurable business improvements. 

Written by Garrett Pluck, CEO of Innovant

Faced with many of the same challenges manufacturing companies experience today, we reached out to Mike Canty and the Synergy Strategic Business Services Group to conduct an operational business assessment. The assessment performed by the Synergy SBS Group gave visibility to our company’s strengths and weaknesses and allowed us to clearly “see the big picture”. The assessment “findings and recommendations” report also assisted us in effectively prioritizing the improvement opportunities identified and outlined a phased approach that would allow us to realize our true potential.

The Synergy SBS Group then worked closely with our company to execute the program and facilitate several major projects that provided measurable improvements along the journey. The shop floor Kaizen activity helped to free up space and improve productivity. But perhaps even more important, the method in which the Lean program was deployed effectively trained employees to think and act differently and in a way where we are capable of sustaining the improvements while using the “lessons learned” to continue improvement activities.  Our warehouse Kaizen activity helped to free up additional space and provided us with a foundation to continuously improve the business.

The Synergy SBS Group concurrently worked with Innovant employees to improve our business processes and make visible the critical information needed to support “data driven decisions”. This was aided by the fact they helped us redeploy and integrate our ERP, Design/Rendering, CRM and CAD systems in a more effective manner. And today, for the first time ever, we can leverage these systems to monitor key performance indicators, measure progress, report financials and accurately see detailed costs which will help Innovant drive more improvement activities well into the future.

Today our company is confident in its ability to understand our customers’ needs, engineering a solution that meets their needs and deliver what they want, when they want it, with the highest level of quality.

Soldream Inc. chooses VISUAL ERP


Soldream Inc. is a US based Connecticut market leading supplier of aerospace and defense component manufacturing including design, fabrication and machining of complex assemblies from wide variety of materials, such as high temperature alloys, steel alloys, stainless steels, titanium, aluminum and many others.

Soldream Inc. is anticipating a long period of year over year growth. The company evaluated its legacy ERP system and determined that their current system was missing several key features that were important to support Soldream’s planned growth and was also not as user friendly and easy to learn as newer generation ERP software. Soldream Inc. also had to comply with high quality demands in a near zero fault tolerant industry which made a compelling case for finding a system with strong QA abilities.

Soldream Inc. conducted a formal ERP Selection reviewing the following systems; Epicor, E2 and JobBOSS. During those comparative analysis sessions, it was pointed out that local companies of similar size were successfully using VISUAL coupled with the support of the Synergy Resources team which has years of hands-on manufacturing experience. Synergy’s team is also based in New England and headquartered in New York.

In addition, there are local VISUAL User Groups which hold quarterly meetings with similar A&D users to discuss current solutions and participate in future design and functionality recommendations. Special A&D tools to improve transferring of forecast data to and from A&D contractors made the solution an easy decision. Synergy’s SmartViews reporting tool promised to make data decisionable and accessible.

Soldream Inc. focused on capabilities to administer all of their quality, financial, purchasing, inventory and production planning requirements. Soldream Inc. was fortunate to have employees with previous experience with both VISUAL and Synergy Resources. Their input was positive and certainly was one of the factors that helped determine which ERP system to select. Several other employees had experience with other ERP systems and did not recommend using the software systems they used in the past.

Soldream Inc. believes that they will benefit from the implementation of VISUAL in many of the following ways:

  • Improved on time support of customer’s demands
  • All major functions utilizing one unifying system, one view of the truth
  • Improved cost tracking, based upon facts
  • Improved communication of demand across all functions and levels of management

Soldream Inc. will leverage VISUAL and its expertise of innovative engineering design, rigorous manufacturing techniques, and uncompromising quality for its custom designed precision A&D products. From concept to production, Soldream offers a dedicated team to optimize their customer’s A&D systems.
