SYNCHRO – the lean-management system from TRUMPF

SYNCHRO is the name of our value creation system introduced in 1998. This system forms the basis for all of our business processes, and is intended to synchronise the work of our employees with production and the product itself. This enables the best products to be manufactured with as little waste as possible.

SYNCHRO in practice

The principles behind SYNCHRO are excellence and transparency: We want to be and remain exemplary in terms of efficiency, technology and people. A culture of constant improvement – this is SYNCHRO in a nutshell.

Excellent process design

Process excellence means synchronising all processes through flow, line balance, pull and the zero-error principle. With the flow principle, we reduce throughput times and make problems visible more quickly. Optimised line balancing guarantees even capacity utilisation and enables increased productivity. The pull principle reduces throughput times and accelerates the material flow. Dealing with errors openly makes constant improvements possible.

Transparent definition of goals

At TRUMPF, management excellence means detecting and remedying errors through on-site management. Goals are clearly defined and communicated to everyone involved in the process. This openness promotes personal responsibility, provides orientation and helps to prevent errors.

Culture of constant improvement

Excellence cannot be prescribed, it must be lived. Excellence in conduct is therefore also a part of SYNCHRO. Our management culture is shaped by respect and responsibility with regard to the employees. We have established a system of understanding and problem solving which reduces waste and reinforces personal responsibility.
