Materials shortage? Don’t lose time
in identifying alternatives

A case study in applying the new CES Selector 2018

Overview

Can you respond quickly to a materials problem with your products, or a crisis in your supply chain? Disruptions can come unexpectedly – as in the recent flooding of a plant that makes over 50% of the US supply of ethylene and polyethylene, and 40% of its chlor-alkali and polyvinyl chloride. Through a case study, we’ll introduce tools that help you to prepare for and respond to such problems. And we’ll demonstrate enhancements to these tools in the new CES Selector 2018 release.
