default titration goal parameter for neuromuscular blockers

We are seeing more providers wanting to titrate paralytic agents to "ventilator synchrony". Our current titration goal parameter is TOF. What are your default titration goal parameters for neuromuscular blockers?

a) Train of Four
b) Ventilator synchrony
c) other

If titrating to ventilator synchrony, how do you define and measure it? Any additional insight you can provide is appreciated.

Thank you.
