Salary.com Wins Talent Management Shootout at 12th Annual HR Technology Conference
Written By: Sherry Fox Published On: October 14 2009 This year, I had the honor of attending the 12th Annual Human Resources (HR) Technology Conference held at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois (US). While many of the events at the three-day conference piqued my interest, none did so more than the 2nd Annual Talent Management Shootout. This shootout reminded me of TEC’s very own shootouts and showdowns, done several times throughout the year Read More...
If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It!!!
Written By: Khudsiya Quadri Published On: October 13 2009 “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” If this proverb were applied in today’s operations, every organization would be in a reactive mode of maintenance and work against the lean manufacturing concepts. Any breakdown or downtime on the manufacturing floor, in the warehouse, in transportation, or any other business process will create missed customer commitments, failed deliveries, idle time, and Read More...

AS/400 Users’ “Phantom Limb” Pains
Written By: Aleksey Osintsev Published On: October 9 2009 As you may know, TEC performs all types of system selection projects with clients in which analysts are usually involved to a lesser or greater degree. In collaboration with a client, analysts usually prepare the “to be”—the future system business and technical requirements document, or request for information (RFI)—and make corrections or additions to the template based on the client’s current Read More...
APICS 2009 Convention: Day 4 (Last Day)
Written By: Khudsiya Quadri Published On: October 8 2009 The last day of the conference is different in three ways: there is no general session today; we have plant tours in the afternoon; and the exhibitors are gone (which is too bad, because for IBM only you could spend hours talking with all the vendors in their booth). As usual, we had a hard time choosing which learning session to attend. Gabriel wanted to learn more about sustainable Read More...
CRM for the Finance and Banking Industry - Part 1
Written By: Gabriel Gheorghiu Published On: October 8 2009 How many different systems does a bank employee use when changing a customer’s contact information? The last time I moved and had to change my address, the bank employee used two systems, asked three or four of her co-workers for help, and took about 15 minutes to do it because the information from one system did not transfer right away to the other system. It goes without saying that this was not Read More...

APICS 2009 Convention: Day 3
Written By: Khudsiya Quadri Published On: October 6 2009 Today’s general session showcased people from around the world (Mexico, China, Italy, South Africa, Poland, India, Egypt, US, etc.) and their stories about what work in manufacturing and supply chain means to them. The idea behind this was to show us how supply chain concepts are being embraced worldwide—and the presenters did it by showing media clips and images from different continents. Read More...
APICS 2009 Convention: Day 2
Written By: Gabriel Gheorghiu Published On: October 6 2009 The conference really started today, with a general session featuring guest star speaker Jason Jennings, business thought leader and best-selling author. And quite a showman, we might add. At first, we learned a few new jokes and found out who the most effective (and by “effective,” we mean “adaptable”)  companies in the world are (among them: IKEA, Staples, Koch, and Smuckers). You Read More...
APICS 2009 Convention: Day 1
Written By: Khudsiya Quadri Published On: October 5 2009 Arrived in Toronto, Ontario (Canada) to attend the APICS international convention and expo—hats off to the Canadian weather (cold!!!!!!!).
