Weather challenges for manufacturers

How we can help

Automobile manufacturers use AEM solutions to provide process integrity.


Identify weather-related interruptions before they happen

Power management during weather events is not just about keeping the lights on. It’s about protecting assets, ensuring continued operations, and managing risks effectively. Severe weather can cause power disruptions that lead to significant business losses, including the loss of in-process products and increased maintenance needs to reset the equipment after an abrupt halt. Therefore, it’s crucial for manufacturing companies to track severe weather and have strategies in place to mitigate the impact of these disruptions.

AEM pinpoint forecasting services help manufacturers understand when potential weather-related service interruptions could be headed their way, allowing operations and facilities leaders to transition to on-site power generation at the perfect moment to ensure production continuity while making the most economical use of generators possible.

Actionable real-time alerts for severe weather

Severe weather conditions like storms, heavy rain, high winds, extreme heat or cold can pose significant risks to employees working outdoors. Local weather alarms or mobile alerts that go directly to employees’ mobile devices provide early warnings, allowing time for workers to take shelter or implement safety measures in compliance with OSHA regulations.

Certain products or raw materials may be sensitive to weather conditions. For example, exposure to excessive moisture, sunlight, or temperature extremes can damage many types of goods. Timely weather alerts help ensure these items are properly protected or moved indoors when necessary.

Visualize weather’s impact on your supply and fulfillment chain

Weather has a significant impact on ground, air, and maritime transportation, all of which are key aspects of the supply chain. Forecasting and monitoring technology helps manufacturers track global weather patterns to understand exactly where supply chain interruptions will or might occur, enabling better transparency and the ability to adapt operations to the greatest degree possible.

When it comes to fulfilling orders, manufacturers can plan routes more effectively by understanding real-time conditions on the road, in the air, or at sea more precisely and accounting for weather-related disruptions that might occur during shipping. This leads to more reliable delivery times, better supply chain partnerships, and fewer wasted resources.

Manufacturing materials like these can be at risk from extreme weather events.


Illustrate your operational resilience in the face of weather

Both OSHA and the EPA require businesses to have emergency response plans for severe weather events, which can include floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and so on. Weather monitoring and forecasting from AEM enable manufacturers to prepare for these events, lead an informed, compliant response, and document that response in a way that demonstrates adherence to both regulations and best practices.

Furthermore, any production facilities discharging wastewater or stormwater that may have come into contact with products or materials are beholden to the Clean Water Act. Our solutions help manufacturers demonstrate a responsible impact on community water resources.
