The Resilience Index: People is the third and final report of our Resilience Index series which delves into 20 years’ worth of data to unearth the truths around industrial resilience and how it can be strengthened.
Today’s businesses have an abundance of data at their fingertips. In a webinar held in October 2019, Richard Jeffers, RS Components’ Technical Director, discussed the role of technology in helping organisations move from data to decisions.
Typically when looking to invest in new machinery, or to simply maintain, improve or upgrade equipment that still has plenty of life left in it, your main considerations will usually be around cost, future-proofing and smooth integration to minimise disruption and downtime.
Emma Botfield, Regional Managing Director (UK and Ireland) at RS Components (RS), highlights why manufacturers should take a strategic approach to ensure resilience underpins their essential supply chain for operations for maintenance, repair, operations (MRO) and protection products.

It should also incorporate a strengthened supply chain, ongoing investment in the latest processes, equipment, and products; engineer new and more productive ways of working and focus on having a safe, highly trained, and motivated workforce.
As the world slowly emerges from the seismic impact of the global pandemic, many engineering companies are instigating plans and undertaking efforts to ensure a strong recovery.
While data has a huge role to play in improving reliability, digitally literate maintenance engineers are critical too
