Manufacturing operating systems provider Pelion Systems and UPS have teamed up to help manufacturers drive lean supply chains.
Pelion and UPS are aiming to create stronger connections between production and distribution and ensure that goods are delivered to the end customers in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible for all supply chain partners involved.
By defining and executing the processes necessary to achieve pull-based production, Pelion says that it provides managers with the demand-driven visibility and control needed to deliver customer service profitably and make smart business decisions that improve bottom-line performance.
The firms say that their combined technology will enable customers to maintain tight synchronization of their supply chain and get the most from their lean initiatives.
UPS’s focus on driving the distribution network to peak efficiency is well complemented by Pelion’s concentration on ensuring that product flowing from the factory is on time and in tune with customer demand, said Kevin Fallon, president and CEO at Pelion Systems. This represents a major expansion of Pelion’s market presence and a continuing focus on enabling the world’s best supply chains.
