The new venture marries Pelion's lean-architected production software with JCIT's education and consulting services built around JCIT's Demand Flow® Technology (DFT) methodology for operational improvement. The merger blends domain expertise in operational excellence and business process optimization with flow principles for enabling demand-driven fulfillment strategies.

JCIT International, the pioneer of Demand Flow® Technology (DFT), brings a history of changing companies to flow and pull production processes. Demand Flow® Technology has earned many awards including a nomination for the Nobel Prize in Economics and a "Hero in Manufacturing" title from Fortune Magazine.
