Demand-Driven Manufacturing is a method of manufacturing primarily used by discrete, custom manufacturers, where production is based on actual demand (orders or consumption) rather than a forecast.

This is enabled through a synchronized, closed loop process between customer orders, production scheduling, and manufacturing execution - all while simultaneously coordinating the flow of materials and resources across the supply chain.

The key components of Demand-Driven Manufacturing are synchronization and flow.

Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturers are today’s truly Lean thinkers. While they are continuously improving, they are also innovating.

Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturers realize that this combination not only gives them an advantage in the marketplace, but it drives their efforts to work smarter, more profitably and exceed expectations.

Modern Demand-Driven Manufacturers embrace technology, but with a different lens. Solutions, not just systems, drive progress.
