Dealing with disruptions
Five to 10 years ago many in the industry were concerned automation would take jobs away from workers. Today though, manufacturing and logistics companies need to optimize as much of their operations as possible to keep up with demand – especially as more and more people outside of the industry begin to realize the implications the manufacturing and logistics industries have on consumers.
Supply-chain disruptions seem to be more common than ever, and customers are feeling the frustration. The effects of industry disruption are consumer-facing in ways like shipment delays, shortage of delivery drivers, production delays and product shortages.
One of the most cited reasons for these disruptions is the shortage of workers. According to Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute, the manufacturing skills gap in the United States could leave as many as 2.1 million jobs unfilled by 2030.
