Review 2012:


Improvements in chemical manufacturing in a changing business environment

2012 will be probably one of the most difficult years to forecast for some time. Concerns remain about the changing business environment and the slowdown in the global economy. Global competition, maturing markets, over-capacity plants, increasing environmental pressure, and rising raw material prices continue to challenge the profitability of the chemical-industry. Customers are demanding lower prices and increased service levels, while competitors are getting smarter, leaner and expanding their global reach. New product lifecycles are shorter and competitors are entering the market faster. Energy and raw material costs have exhibited extreme volatility. Globalization is lengthening supply chains and increasing business complexity, while increased government regulation and scrutiny and greater product stewardship are increasing the amount of information required in the chemical supply chain, often at significant cost.

A suite of (software) tools & methods, such as MES, BI or an integrated automation infrastructure has been developed in order to fulfil both the technical and human requirements of achieving operational excellence. This emerging technology is available today and can be implemented to provide companies in the chemical industry with capabilities that improve visibility, manage events, and provide performance scorecarding and analytics for improving and understanding performance. This allows production and logistics processes to be synchronised so that, at any time, products are quickly and cost efficiently delivered which contributes to maintaining a competitive edge. Many leading chemical manufacturers recognize the need for a vastly improved and more global automation infrastructure than currently exists in even the most automated facilities. These companies need better tracking and tracing capabilities, cost-effective production management solutions, methods to maximize asset utilization and solutions for improving quality and safety.

Agile enterprise is always one step ahead of the competition, which cultivates a responsive environment and delivers major improvements in lead time, product quality, and lower production costs. The resulting increase in inventory levels, costs and savings, and the massive pressure from Asian competitors requires a thorough discussion of methods and tools to implement a strategic and sustainable production management in the chemical industry under the impact of global shifts in the market.

The “Global ManuCHEM Strategies” will discuss these challenges and solutions with top executive and managers from all leading chemical companies from Europe and the US.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Your we.CONECT team
