Collaboration in the Chemicals Supply Chain

November 14, 2019

In the world of global chemicals, supply chain efficiency is being challenged by growing operational complexity. In a Deloitte survey of process industry executives, supply chain was the top priority for future digital investment.    Our customers strive to achieve sustainable states of alignment to close gaps between plans and actuals – and, ultimately, to improve margins. In fact, our recent white paper by Roch Gauthier, senior director product management, outlines several examples of great success here, among many other insights. Chemicals companies can do little about complexity. They can’t control it. Instead, they need to adapt seamlessly and use it to their advantage. Roch explains how to unlock and sustain value by aligning supply chain and operations. Personally, I see more than ‘just’ bigger profits as reward for this investment and transformation.

Why chemical characterization is the best way to assess patient risk

Article | February 11, 2020

Everyone is very familiar with the phrase when buying a house: All that really matters are three things - location, location, and location. This same principle applies to extractables and leachables chemistry analysis – the three things that truly matter are identification, identification, and identification.
