Research project


The aim of the research project InSynchroPro II is to open up the way of advantages in serial manufacturing based on flow production for synchronization of tool making. By synchronization or especially a pulsing of the manufacturing process a consistent flow of tools should be created. The aims are a sustainable decrease of cycle times, the growth of adherence to schedules (both to customers and in-house) and the minimization of the controlling effort. Thus German tool shops can differentiate themselves by the strategic advantage “time”. A configurable, sectorial kit of methods for synchronization should be provided for the partly huge differences between the companies, their products and their strategies . Furthermore an additional guideline supports the tool shops already at the conception of the process synchronization but also at the implementation in their own companies.
