to ensure that primary and finishing work together
Explanation: I think the idea between the image of aligning push with pull is that of two people who transport a heavy object together (one pushing from behind and one pulling from the front) and have to coordinated their efforts. In this case the efforst of 'primary' and 'finishing' have to be coordinated for maximum effect.

'Primary' (whatever department that may be) feeds work (e.g. orders or jobs) into the system (that's the push part), and 'finishing' draws work out of the system (the pull part), probably for subsequent delivery to the customer. If there's more push than pull, the system gets clogged, and if there's more pull than push, finishing gets frustrated (and you have people getting paid to do nothing). In the ideal case, the push and pull match (are aligned).
