COVID-19, war in Ukraine, inflation: In 2022, supply chains around the world were under huge pressure. Operational risks and disruptions threatened several areas of a supply chain and had a very direct, far-reaching and global impact: on logistics, suppliers and the workforce. Additional pressure on supply chains stems from everyday challenges -– unexpected competition, sudden changes in market trends or rapid shifts in consumer buying behaviour. So it is more important than ever that supply chains are designed to withstand the challenges of today – and tomorrow.

Companies in Germany are facing new legal challenges coming next year. In this article, you will find out whom the Supply Chain Act concerns and what action your company must now take.
Remote access to production machines is increasingly becoming the focus of attention as digitisation progresses. Almost all manufacturers now offer service packages that enable remote access to their machines. While production companies benefit from significantly shorter response times in the event of malfunctions and lower costs for maintenance visits, new business models arise for machine manufacturers, which ideally lead to optimised, long-term customer retention.
But in reality, not all that glitters is gold, even when it comes to remote services. Excessive implementation costs, disinterested end users or security concerns are just some of the pitfalls lurking for machine manufacturers.
In this article, you will learn how to implement remote services securely, quickly and without financial risks and what challenges need to be overcome in remote access.

There is hardly any other occupational sector where more vacancies are currently being advertised than in the area of procurement. Digitalisation does not stop at procurement, but hardly any industry insiders assume that digital solutions will become a job destroyer. On the contrary: digitalisation will make the profession more diverse, more dynamic and more challenging. Salaries in strategic and operational purchasing are already over 45,000 euros a year for career starters, and with growing experience up to 90,000 euros are possible. Nevertheless, a dangerous trend is currently emerging. The supply chain is losing a disproportionately large number of qualified employees, especially at the lower levels. This article explains the reasons for the "talent exodus" and how companies can counteract it.
A particularly good order situation in mechanical engineering is currently encountering global challenges that are causing problems for the industry – but also bring opportunities. We have taken a look around the current market for CNC machines and compiled the most important industry information for you in a concise form.
Incorporating more diversity into your supplier base can deliver considerable benefits for your organisation, including increased innovation and improved quality. Numerous studies have shown that diverse suppliers produce superior results and improve the top and bottom line. But while the advantages are clear, it’s not always obvious to companies how they can start sourcing from diverse suppliers, especially if their current supplier base lacks diversity. Undertaking the development of a more diverse supply chain may seem like a formidable task but, if the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that it’s time to move from words to actions in achieving your organisation’s diversity objectives.
