In times of disruption, manufacturers must find ways to maintain business continuity without significant downtime. Learn more about the remote workforce management solution that can help teams and stakeholders connect to the same processes, workflows and datasets in real time.

The recent global health crisis brought the global supply chain to a standstill. To get a sense of the scale of the disruption, consider that:

  • Over 40 percent of the Fortune Global 500 firms have a significant presence in China,1
  • More than 75 percent of businesses have ‘one or more direct or Tier 1’ suppliers from China, and
  • About 94 percent of the Fortune 1000 companies have Tier 2 suppliers there.2

As a result of propagated disruption, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) have estimated that global FDI shrank by 15 percent. Supply chain partners are also unable to fulfill orders in time — or at all — during the crisis; the reduction in material components and delivery levels will reverberate throughout the supply chain for the foreseeable future.

In turn, manufacturers now face the following significant challenges when it comes to effectively managing remote employees:

  • Ensuring a stable, consistent transfer of knowledge between disparate teams and stakeholders
  • Providing on-site teams with real-time support and expertise
  • Effectively monitoring production health, performance and insights without being on-site

With large-scale remote working becoming the new operational reality, manufacturers must prepare themselves for a reduction in productivity and innovation while this transition takes place.

Data may be the crude oil of the 21st century, but without the ability to analyze and action based on tangible, accurate insights, it is simply taking up space.

Benefits of more sustainable manufacturing

Reduce energy costs

Lifecycle assessment capabilities that are improved with simulation enable manufacturers to calculate all environmental impacts across all lifecycle stages of their factory. This is crucial in helping them time their production processes with the availability of renewable energy sources to realize a low carbon footprint and optimize energy draw from the grid.

Limit waste

With the right tools, manufacturers can recycle and recover materials from waste and optimize raw material usage during the design phase. Reducing raw material outputs achieves knock-on effects in promoting more efficient and streamlined working practices, as manufacturers only use what they need, and improves a manufacturer’s bottom line, as they only need to purchase and store the right amount of material.

Improve brand image

When manufacturers can demonstrate the specific actions they’ve taken to achieve sustainable manufacturing and back it up with results data, they can substantiate their brand’s sustainability credentials. Instead of greenwashing, which is merely public relations in action, credibly sustainable companies can become more attractive to sustainability-minded consumers and potential employees looking for meaningful work.

Better manage risks

Better manage risks

As more governments move to codify sustainability requirements into law, this opens up manufacturers to operational risks like penalties and litigation. With the right solution, manufacturers can harmonize global operations with different legal requirements. They can also improve energy risk management by integrating the best low-carbon power generation sources to become less reliant on price-volatile carbon-based energy options.

Promote innovation

New production processes can be leveraged to innovate new product lines in a sustainable manner. Nike, for example, innovated its new Flyknit line where new manufacturing processes required minimal labor and enjoyed significant waste reduction while also removing waste from landfills. The line is also profitable for Nike, generating over US$2 billion in revenue since it was implemented..
