Explore the possibility of production line expansion for medical supplies

COVID-19 has highlighted the vulnerability of global supply chains. Due to the widespread closures of factories, as well as travel and logistics restrictions, many products that we have previously taken for granted have become extremely difficult or expensive to source. This has been especially true in the healthcare and medical sectors.

The current supply of product is very inconsistent, with surges and fluctuations in product availability, causing ongoing frustration and desperation. Should future waves of similar infectious viruses occur, and further lockdowns take place, we need to develop new systems to respond to and manage supply chain issues for vital equipment and supplies.

Fraunhofer IPT are well-positioned to support manufacturers who are looking for conceptual design and the short-term establishment of production systems for bottleneck products. By undertaking a quick scan of the organization’s production system/s and with an understanding of the requirements, Fraunhofer IPT is able to provide a detailed analysis of what is needed for a manufacturer to meet the critical demand for ‘bottleneck products’. Furthermore, Fraunhofer IPT can identify potential alternative vital products to manufacture when required.

Manufacturers who are looking to expand their existing production line to support bottleneck products should explore the potential to benefit from a BOOST Smart Industry Voucher.
