Implementing Customer, Product, and Channel Profitability Analytics


To be reliable, cost and profitability analysis must be underpinned with an activity-driven view of how an organization’s products, customers, and channels consume resources and incur costs. However, activity-based costing (ABC) contributes to more reliable customer, product, and channel profitability analysis. In fact, without this foundation, such analyses are critically flawed, and can result in inappropriate decisions and choices.

Production Management Research


Primarily due to rapid development of technology in the past thirty years, the market structure throughout the world has changed considerably. Local markets have become accessible to foreign manufacturers, who are able to perform well in their newly established territories in part due to their superior application of technology. In this light, most companies, including small and medium size, have embedded globalization in their expansion strategies, consistently seeking for new markets abroad. Consequently, local manufacturing companies are facing global competition, forcing them to adopt new concepts with respect to people, process and technologies. This document describes these approaches to production planning in detail as well outlines a software solution. The software solution (Production/3) combines both pull and push techniques and enables small to medium size organizations to fully automate their production system while retaining their investment in their legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
