Supply chain disruptions can impact manufacturing processes as they rely on a network of suppliers and contractors. Issues like material shortages, transportation challenges, or geopolitical problems can cause delays and raise prices.

Effective inventory management is crucial to prevent overstocking or stockouts, which can lead to unnecessary expenses and missed opportunities.

Managing the workforce presents its own set of challenges, including skilled labor shortages and turnover. Maintaining a motivated and well-trained team is essential for meeting production goals.
