Chemtiva for Engineers

Successful chemical engineering requires operational excellence (OE) — a set of best practices for coordinating operations across the value chain to increase productivity, efficiency and effectiveness. Maintaining OE improves business outcomes in a wide range of ways, from reducing risks and costs to increasing competitive edges and profit margins. For all these reasons, OE is a key objective for chemical engineers throughout every stage of the manufacturing pipeline.

Finding information for Chemical Engineers

If engineers lack accurate informational inputs on their supply chain and facility management operations, this places them at a distinct disadvantage in regard to efficiency, cost-effectiveness and adaptiveness. In order to avoid these impediments, engineers require an accurate understanding of the landscape of technical, safety and commercial information relevant to their production environment.

Furthermore, chemical firms need on-demand access to accurate commercial information to remain agile enough to adapt their manufacturing processes in response to shifting market factors. This information includes up-to-date insights on global trade analytics, as well as commercial suppliers and regulatory changes — along with technical and safety datasheets on millions of raw materials and intermediary compounds.

Save Costs and Make Better Decisions

This data not only helps engineers achieve cost savings on commercial-scale materials but also enables them to forge more advantageous supplier relationships and to ensure the health and safety of workers at their facilities. In addition, accurate chemical datasets enable engineers to keep their firms cost-effective in today’s rapidly evolving global marketplace, while simultaneously developing more mutually beneficial partnerships and practices.

But even so, accurate data on its own is not enough. Engineers also need a toolkit for analyzing, visualizing and collaborating around the data they use. Such a toolkit is mission-critical for enabling teams throughout a chemical organization to effectively leverage the datasets to which they have access. Engineers who can not only access data — but also share and present it clearly —  are well equipped to identify and manage risks, and ensure that all operations run smoothly throughout the complex facilities in which they work.
