ERP, Sustainability + and Corporate Business Valuations

Thanks to MIT for their leadership position in pulling together the conceptual with the implementable!

After reading their below article, then speaking with a leader in the emerging new norm in fashion and garment ( and with a 30+ year veteran thought leader in the process industries, I’ve started to gain an understanding of how we can actually move the vision towards reality. Given the work done in some industries for Y2K, the data capture, analysis and remediation of core manufacturing infrastructure (NOT the IT side) is achievable enough to support the creation of “standard” metrics for safety, sustainability, serviceability, efficiency and effectiveness.  Capture these metrics and begin defining “best practices,” create some quantification algorithms to correlate to business value and voila, we have our next ERP bolt-on module.

Is it more complicated than this?  Yes.  Will it take a global groundswell to make this a reality?  Yes.  Can we all start on making this reality today? Yes.
