This is the final post in a two-part series on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and the chemical industry. Part one looked at how the crisis has impacted companies so far and what their response has been. Here, we’ll cover how organizations are adjusting to remote work and look to what the future might hold.
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis is changing the world as we know it, causing ripple effects throughout national, state and local economies and forcing businesses to rapidly adapt. Unemployment claims have surpassed the highest in history; over 30 million claims, totaling nearly 20 percent of the U.S. labor force, were filed in the six weeks between mid-March and April 25, 2020 alone. And in one of the most shocking developments, the price of oil dropped below zero for the first time in history.
Chemical and process manufacturing is a complex industry, and companies in this market have unique needs. MRP software — short for “material requirements planning,” “material resource planning” or “manufacturing resource planning” software — is a valuable tool for managing the complex processes of planning, scheduling and controlling the production, purchasing and distribution of manufactured goods.
Do you have strict requirements for quality and safety, with equally strict procedures required for meeting them? Is your industry regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)? FDA software validation is one way to ensure the tools you use when creating or distributing products are up to the task.
