Press Release Summary: Demand Driven Supply Chain Adds to Streamline the Security Process According to Manufacturing Journalist Thomas R. Cutler
Press Release Body: Datacraft Solutions (www.datacraftsolutions.com) delivers a revolutionary digital kanban process of automation solutions to lean manufacturers through a secure Internet gateway, eliminating the need to install and maintain a complex IT infrastructure. The company has experienced significant growth in the past two years by eliminating complicated, expensive, time-intensive software implementations as well as extensive training regiments and the need for internal support. The Datacraft Solutions\' replenishment supply chain digital kanban lean system allows customers access and fully utilize powerful lean benefits immediately for a low, predictable monthly fee; services are scalable so manufacturers can design an appropriate solution.
The new feature article in the current issue of The Machinist authored by manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler is titled: "Streamline the security processes." Cutler discusses how technology solutions can guard malevolent data tampering and in due course smoothen the data to work impeccably. Here both the principles of security and safety play a significant role and are to be seen as part of a lean manufacturing continued process improvement program.
According to Cutler, "Other aspects of internal data security include elements of a demand driven supply chain. Stephen Parker, CEO of Datacraft Solutions notes, "To ensure security, data must be working seamlessly with existing visual board systems. Digital kanban solutions allow individual cells or entire supply chains to realize an immediate and dramatic return from an extremely small process automation investment, by vastly reducing the management time."
Routine, repetitive tasks are automated, and exceptions are instantly highlighted in this highly secure 'Software as a Solution' (SaaS) model, so that managers can focus their time and skills on responding to and eliminating problems before they reach the plant floor. On-demand Internet-based delivery platform further streamlines the process by eliminating the cumbersome, time-consuming and costly implementation required to integrate new hardware and software into an IT infrastructure. Parker noted that the security of the data is impeccable: "We host all the data at our data center. We have a server farm with 100 per cent redundancy and three OC3 lines. Our data is 99.999 per cent secure, and our clients have never experienced down time, thanks to a multiple UPS power backup system and 900 kw diesel caterpillar generator. We also have biometric scanners for data center security."
