Chemical Industry

Companies in the chemical manufacturing produce basic chemicals. Except for uniquely formulated specialty, it is a commodity business. the biggest concerns are raw-material cost and quality, production cost and quality, regulatory compliance, and any technique that will enable them to widen their razor-thin margins.

Chemical manufacturers must successfully juggle complex formulas and recipes, comply with regulatory and customer mandates, and manage a wealth of compound-specific characteristics such as shelf life, potencies, unit-of-measure conversions, “best before” dates, catch weight, co-products and by-products, and creation of certificates of analysis. Constantly changing product and packaging variations present operational and inventory challenges and require close  interaction between research and development labs, procurement, production, and marketing.

Features

This process spans research and development, including input from customers, suppliers and internal sources, as well as recipe development and testing.

  • Recipe and formula management
  • R&D Formula
  • Inverse bill of materials
  • Dynamic formula adjustment
  • Co-product/by-product management
  • Catch weight

The planning process begins with the forecasting of demand and then proceeds through planning, scheduling, and execution to dispositioning of products to the points of demand.

The buying or “procurement” process encompasses everything from sourcing and bidding to supplier selection, contract awards, negotiations, receipt of goods or services, and payment processing.

  • Batch optimization and balancing
  • Yield planning and tracking

Sales begins with marketing and lead generation and proceeds through customer and opportunity management, ordering, shipping, and finally to collecting of cash.

Once products have been delivered, services organizations play an important role in customer satisfaction, handling customer calls, problems, complaints, returns, and repairs as needed.

Managing the business includes functions from strategic planning and accounting to reporting, facilities and property management, along with technology and information assets.

  • Shelf life and dating
  • Centralized quality control regulation

Managing the human capital of an organization requires commitments to recruiting, interviewing, hiring, compensation, bonuses, benefits, and workforce and professional development programs.

Make-to-Order (Configuration based) Manufacturing

Manufacturing operations or assembly process start after customer order is received. When demand is confirmed, pull-type supply chain operation starts. Inventory management for parts, and semi-finished/prepared parts are very critical.

Operation traceability thru sales orders, job shop labor and material scheduling, promise date, delays, packaging and shipment, customer site installations, after sales support are basics for configuration based manufacturing companies.
