Empirical research supports his claim. Several longitudinal studies verified the lead-lag relationship at a point in time. For example, companies that achieve fast cycle times later reported triple the revenue growth and double the profits over industry average competitors. However, given the many complex

Time Tracking and Attendance Primer: Beyond the Clock


Punch clocks, clock card machines, Bundy clocks, time recorders. Most organizations are opting for newer methods to track their employees’ time and attendance. Today’s time tracking technology is not just about capturing hours—it’s about where those hours are allocated and how productive they are. TEC analyst Sherry Fox reviews some of the key features of current time tracking software and highlights some popular vendors.

But the information those time cards provided ended there: the employee worked a specific number of hours and the employee got paid for those hours. Any type of analysis of time worked or time off was done manually using spreadsheets. Although an Read More

Hacking Your PBX: 15 Ways to Make the Most of a Modern Phone System


The days of telephone switchboard operators are long gone. In today's electronic age, through private branch exchange (PBX) technology, operators have been replaced with Internet protocols that automate the switchboard process. But how can you make the most of your modern phone system when you're not really sure how it works? Discover some tips and tricks that can help you understand—and optimize—your business phone setup.

Whatever the case, the PBX system knows how to get hold of you, and you Read More

PTC Live Global 2013: All About Design for “Servitization” —Part One


This was my third time attending the PTC Live Global (formerly PlanetPTC Live) conference, and by now I can say with some conviction that, compared to its large product lifecycle management (PLM) and computer aided design (CAD) software peers, PTC provides the most inspiring keynote presentations by its top executives and customers. There are no flashy marketing gimmicks, overselling, and industry

Question: When is Six Sigma not Six Sigma? Answer: When it's the Six Sigma Metric!!©


Six Sigma Quality is a popular approach to process improvement, particularly among technology driven companies such as Allied Signal, General Electric, Kodak and Texas Instruments. Its objective is to reduce output variability through process improvement, and/or to increase customer specification limits through design for producibility. I don't like the Six Sigma metric. As you'll see, it fails to pass many of the empirical tests for "good" metrics. In particular, it's neither simple to understand nor, in most applications, an effective proxy for customer satisfaction. And, its definition is ambiguous and therefore easily gamed because th

Securing Mobile Apps in a BYOD World


The next wave of exploiting the power of mobile devices involves the apps that run on them. Increasingly, enterprise IT organizations will be under pressure to build or purchase mobile apps that meet the requirements of enterprise employees and business units. Firms will need security that can span multiple devices and heterogeneous IT systems and provides protection for the devices and their data. For most organizations, a scarcity of resources for mobile app development and the lack of mobile security expertise can prevent an adequate IT response to this challenge.

Digital KVM Switches Are Quite Popular-Analog KVM Switches Still Deserve Respect


Digital keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) switches can be less costly as they rely on existing infrastructure and don’t have circuitry for network conversion. Analog switches cost less per port and are better suited to graphically intense environments. Either type allows increased computer density because relatively few monitors, keyboards, and mouses are needed and because consoles can be outside the data center. Find out more.
