My son recently showed me the assembled Lego set of “The Office” TV show. With 1164 pieces, the number of features and details in that set was extremely impressive and highly meaningful to anyone who was a fan of the show.
This attention to detail, and the complexity involved in creating such a set with so many unique pieces, got me thinking about the incredibly flawless precision required in the entire Lego manufacturing, packaging and distribution process.
Let’s review the complexity of the Lego Supply Chain process.
Manufacturing production delays can be devastating for the core business and others that rely on the manufactured products for their own processes. A delay in one manufacturing plant can have ripple effects across a whole supply chain, which is why it is so important to prevent these delays.
Doing so starts with understanding why they happen. Below we explore some of these reasons.

In today’s world, supply chains are more important than ever. They’re a key part of any business’s operations, but they can also be one of the most vulnerable areas.
From a business perspective, it’s no longer enough to simply produce and distribute your products. You also have to make sure they get to their intended destination on time, in good condition, and ready to be sold.
That means managing employees, vendors, customers, and more on one platform. And if you’re not doing that well enough, you’ll lose money fast. In fact, 89% of businesses encountered a supplier risk event in the last five years. But not all companies are prepared for this level of risk and complexity. That’s where supply chain risk management software comes in.
CaliBaja is a North American manufacturing powerhouse. Located in Mexico but close to the California border, it serves as a vast hub of industrial jobs, making significant contributions to the production of products that ship all over the world.
For Mexico, it’s a big boon, offering the community an enormous number of stable, well-paying jobs. As of Winter 2022, CaliBaja is home to seven million people and has a gross annual GDP of $250 billion- $70 billion of which comes frominternational trade.
It’s that time of year. Cold and flu season. And I have started the season with a whopper of a flu. Naturally I went to get cold and flu medication. But in every store I went to the Cold medication shelves were virtually empty.
Why on earth would there be a shortage of this specific medication so early in the season? To my knowledge there was no cold or flu epidemic that was suddenly driving demand.
Was this a Supply Chain issue, a manufacturing or distribution issue, or was something else going on?
Most manufacturers still rely on traditional methods to promote their business. Word-of-mouth referrals, networking events, and trade shows are still preferred by those in the manufacturing industry for a good reason they still work.
However, today’s clients are more demanding and better informed. And most prospective buyers are going online to research the most effective manufacturing business to partner with.
That said, manufacturers need to have an established digital presence to thrive in this increasingly competitive world.
In this article, we’re sharing the basics of digital marketing and some tips to ensure your manufacturing business’s success in marketing to the online world.
Believe it or not, Industry 4.0 — the latest specialization for modern factories and manufacturing plants — does factor into design and and help optimize your factory layout. That is because digitization, or the current movement to connect and bring all equipment into modern times, absolutely influences design.
In essence, that is the heart of Industry 4.0, a complete synergy between operations, equipment, properties and, of course, the people who spend their time there. If 3.0 was about automation and boosting efficiency, this generation is about injecting the human touch back into the work environment, and that means accommodating such things from a design standpoint.
