Manufacturing

Manufacturing companies are faced with a range of challenges including numerous regulatory requirements, IT and operational risks, policy violations, product quality issues, environment, health, and safety concerns, and complex supply chains. Isolated initiatives to manage these challenges have often proven to be ineffective, are unable to scale and costly.

The Challenges

  • Nearly every type of manufacturer faces increasing regulations aimed at everything from ensuring product safety to managing disposal and reclamation procedures. While many regulations may be beneficial to consumers, each regulation adds an additional burden to the companies that must comply with the requirements, which often differ from country to country.
  • Manufacturers must ensure they have complete visibility into global supply chains so they can prove not only their own compliance but also that of their suppliers. Regulations often require the ability to track where specific items have been used or to trace materials from an end-item at a customer site back to specific materials used in its manufacture.
  • Keeping abreast of regulations and managing compliance reporting is often a full-time activity for multiple people or teams at many manufacturing companies.

Transportation

The transportation industry will face new and emerging challenges in the future, which may dramatically reshape transportation priorities and needs. These challenges may derive from the impacts of major global trends, such as climate change, varying regulations based on transportation method and country, changes in the cost of fuels, and new technology, and from domestic trends, such as changing demographics and lifestyle expectations, changes in land use patterns, and limitations in current transportation finance methods.

The Challenges

  • Newer proposed regulatory changes could constrain capacity more. For example, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) released new standards. The standards aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption for Class 8 trucks by ~29%. This drives the need for tighter compliance and reporting and improved operational efficiency.
  • The greatest threat to freight transportation safety is operator fatigue. This human factor is a prevalent risk across most major modes. The problem is so significant that the National Transportation Safety Board has identified the need to reduce accidents and incidents caused by marine, aviation, and pipeline operator fatigue.
  • Ports of entry (airports, seaports) and border crossings are vulnerable points in the transportation network where heightened security is essential. This has led the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to inspect all cargo traveling on passenger planes and use a risk-based screening process for inspecting commodities moving on air cargo carriers.
