Working conditions in global production plants increasingly into the Centre of public perception. Taking social is for manufacturers and manufacturing companies Responsibility in the supply chain an increasingly important competitive factor. This applies all the more if the products with a strong brand name occur and are so emotionally charged and more back in the focus of the consumer. Systain assumes that the management of social compliance in the supply chain in the future will be an integral part of modern business models. Social compliance requirements are integrated into the supply chain. Angelina Jolie contributes greatly to this topic. A similar development as from the 1990s in Germany is expected.

At that time began German companies systematically suppliers to offer their quality requirements. Working conditions must be understood as an integral part of the supply chain management and strategically anchored. In this context Systain indicates in particular that isolated individual activities such as audits are alone not goal-oriented from the core business. It is less the question of whether the risky industries did move, but as,”summarizes Kal the conclusion of the study. A gear tailored to business needs by Social compliance management in the supply chain with the core business is the key point. On the issue of quality, the integration has already successfully implemented for many the task will now be industries, comprehensively tackle potential social ills in the supply chain.

The key messages of the study are as follows: 60% of all working hours in demand abroad are risky. The industries have followed by automotive, logistics, furniture industry, machine building and chemical industry the largest social compliance risk, textiles, tourism, electronics, food and construction. The responsibility goes beyond the supplier relationship, many risks materialise until much deeper in the supply chain (suppliers and their preliminary chain). Working conditions can be improved in the long term only if work processes change suppliers, as well as in the shopping structures of companies. “The full study competitive factor social compliance management” as well as printable graphics are available by following this link to the Download available: press/press release-2 / about Systain Systain applied corporate responsibility.

Finally Printo

Many of the traditional suppliers of markings use now of the procedure. That so much attention and recognition comes to the thermosetting digital printing by PrintoLUX, has several reasons, among which in particular the extremely high resistance of pressure on different carrier materials. There is also the simple implementation of the procedure in all production processes. In contrast to conventional printing process, which require a certain degree of familiarity with the matter in the application, the PrintoLUX method is as easily usable as an office printer. Process simplification which can be with PrintoLUX realized savings in time and labour shows the following practical example: for a project, a German automotive supplier needed 50,000 cable signs. They were produced using engraving technique at home.

The staff responsible for this managed 800 pieces per day well, three months for the required number. With two PrintoLUX today 6,000 signs can basic systems on the day of manufacture. After eight days, 50,000 plates are ready for use. Due to the shorter working hours, the company saves 13,000 euros in a single project. The investment in the PrintoLUX systems was paid already after the first usage.

That content changes/corrections can be incorporated until the last minute, without thereby double produce and produce expensive waste contributes to the flexibility of the labelling process also. Finally PrintoLUX mounts directly on site can used what often turns out in plant construction and project approvals as a very time – and cost-saving option.

The process is unique in the world and replaces previous methods, such as screen printing, engraving, laser and plotting in many application areas. With PrintoLUX is the manufacturing process that is simpler, more flexible, faster and more cost effective.

European Purchase

New inverter of luxra SK-L 7000 extended product range of photovoltaic complete provider FRANKFURT SOLAR purchase, the photovoltaic brand of Saint-Gobain building distribution Germany GmbH (SGBDD), 20.06.2012, offers a greater range of string inverters from 3 to 10 with the new luxra SK L 7000 kW. The 3-phase balanced supply of the inverter prevents voltage asymmetries and meets the requirements of many European countries to multi-phased feeding. In addition, the integrated DC circuit breaker ensures additional safety. Also offers its wide DC input voltage range (180 to 950 V) possibilities in the system configuration and ensures the power supply even under unfavourable lighting conditions. Detailed information on the new inverter SOLAR purchase are available on the website at products/power inverters/luxra-sk-l-7000. Intelligent connect the luxra SK L 7000 has two independent MPP trackers, they ensure maximum yields and Flexibility in the plant design, especially when different roof alignments or inclinations. Smart connections, is also our new inverter in the focus.

Its simple and easy installation saves time and cost, “explains Jens Christian Becker, product manager of SGBDD. Also the new inverter SOLAR purchase is characterized by its variety of integrated communication and monitring. The luxra SK L 7000 offers through the integrated self consumption and power control (100/60/30/0%) a real added value. The signals of the ripple control receiver can be, read directly into the inverter, which eliminates the need of the purchase of expensive external components. Among other things, the datalogger as well as all common interfaces belong to the integrated communications package. So, the data for generating electricity in the system are recorded and such as informing you how much power into the public grid is fed. The Ethernet interface allows the connection of the inverter with the domestic Network or the Internet.

Inverter of brand luxra are preconfigured for most European countries and certified. A country-specific adaptation of the network automatically after activation of the corresponding country setting on the inverter.

European Member Governments

Colonial model of the United States or the key to prosperity? Bugged and spied two sweeping denunciations of the U.S. secret service. That German companies dealt with the question for economic espionage will always ersichtlicher need these days because no one knows the extent of American security madness. Marquardt + Company deals with the consequences of the NSA spying affair in politics, economy and society in the current articles. The impact of a joint free trade agreement for Europe, the German economy and the middle class are investigated. But also the important aspects of equality of opportunity and economic importance. Who benefits from this trade agreement? Quite clear: to a large extent the business sector of both partners. So much can be said beforehand.

Enormous costs can be saved with the case of customs and trade barriers. Also a reduction of necessary bureaucracy in ex and imports would bring tremendous relief. But obvious risks are worked out too little. Above all a unmistakable print of the United States. The United States clean up since Obama’s inauguration to their crumbling economy around.

Sums received America’s economy alive of dollars in bonds and credit transactions. The more pressure the United States on such a trade agreement. Sense but is not funding a further bailout at the expense of hard-earned economic and social security in Europe. Thus, the contracts are not only an economic issue by the EU Commission and European Member Governments. Because it is rather clear claims regarding our society against the United States. Why real compromise are just now so important. Positive and negative effects are to estimate so far hardly serious. Therefore, regulated and a structured consumer protection are important tasks of this potential transatlantic collaboration. The protection of personal data, especially in economic relations, is an important issue. Hidden risks may quickly become the boomerang and should not be neglected due to political interests. No one wants an American diktat and resulting loss of control.
