National and Local Constraints

By Owen Gould

Local impact

Local Constraints can come positively and negatively. The negative constraints could consist of: Laws, resources, pollution, noise pollutions and more visitors meaning an increase in traffic.

The positive constraints could consist of creating jobs, more income for the company due to the increase in visitors.

Negative Constraints

Local constraints are limits to an engineering organisation. Constraints through law could limit the amount of time the organisation can use in a day. This is negative as this could cause the organisation to take a lot longer to do their work. The reason organisations would have to obey to these laws as loud noises could annoy the public and neighbouring houses to the factories.

Resources is a local constraint. Resources would be a constraint because if you haven't got the right equipment or tools to do a job, using hand tools would be the only way possible to complete the job

Pollution and noise pollution would be a local constraint due to the amount of pollution a factory can create causing the local area to suffer from the pollution. Noise pollution is a local constraint as whilst an organisations factory is doing practical activity, loud noises would be created which could irritate the local residents in the vicinity of the factory.

Due to a new organisation opening a new factory would cause the local constraint of a lot of traffic creating traffic jams on the streets near by.

Positive Constraints

Positive constraints consist of creating more jobs, more income for the company due to the increase in visitors.

Creating more jobs is a positive constraint because it provides more jobs for the unemployed bringing the unemployment rate down.

The increase in visitors would cause more money to come in to the engineering organisation enabling them too produce better quality products and services.
