Chemical manufacturing is a huge international business. In the US, annual shipment values total $800 billion, with a $191 billion export sector. What’s more, the industry employs more than 800,000 people across the country. It’s essential to the American economy.
All of the businesses operating in this sector, however, face a unique set of challenges that can make it difficult to plan, schedule, execute and analyse effectively.
No room for error
Chemical manufacturing is a precise task, and mistakes can hit businesses financially. It’s essential that the right materials are available and that production is monitored closely to minimise errors.
Cost of raw goods
Chemical manufacturing relies on a huge range of raw materials, the availability and prices of which are prone to fluctuation. The ability to accurately determine stock requirements, therefore, is crucial.
The industry is governed by stricter health and safety regulations than most, given the nature and volume of hazards present in the manufacturing environment.
Large product catalogues
Manufacturers are often tasked with managing large product portfolios, with production sometimes spread across disparate sites.
