Production of goods and materials has benefitted the lives of billions of people, providing jobs and quality of life. To continue this, manufacturers, producers and supply chains must take responsibility for how they consume resources, manage waste and the impact on the environment and communities upon which they are built; employees, customers and others local populations.
Modern technologies provide a wealth of opportunity to capture and analyse data to drive improvements across these areas, however most companies are discovering that turning board room Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategies into performant, sustainable programmes is a challenge.
Success requires a driven management commitment and a cultural change that needs to be communicated well and then supported when the right opportunities are discovered.
Predictive simulation, through its powerful visualisation of data, is ideal for uncovering, proving and socialising opportunities to drive productivity in a sustainable way.
