Amazon’s “Vendor Flex” Supply Chain Innovation


Supply chains are always looking for greater efficiency, and reducing latency is a recurring theme. It was interesting therefore to read a recent Wall Street Journal article by Serena Ng about an ambitious experiment by Amazon, and one that has apparently been ongoing, very quietly, for some 3 years. In a joint initiative with Procter @ Gamble (P@G), Amazon has developed a program called

Paradoxes of Software Estimation


Software development has spawned an independent industry in its own right. But the processes of asking for service, offering service, and pricing are all somewhat haphazard. Perhaps it's time to focus efforts on resolving the key paradoxes of software estimation.

We don't attempt to measure these things in beauty points or love points—do we? There are many examples in industry too. We do not measure a car—do we have car points to say that a BMW has twenty-five car points and a Toyota has fifteen car points, and that therefore BMW is superior by ten car points? How does one compare different cars? We don't have a measure for cars that permits Read More

TurtleSpice ERP! (Week 4)


The story so far: Mike Chelonia, TurtleSpice’s comptroller, has been tasked to select an ERP system by his CFO.

Understanding SOA, Web Services, BPM, BPEL, and More Part One: SOA, Web Services, and BPM


In the larger schema of things, SOA would espouse general, more abstract concepts of software reusability and encapsulation within certain boundaries (as to then provide access to that software via defined interfaces), Web services would then make these SOA concepts vendor-independent due to their use of generally accepted standards, while BPM and BPEL would be some of the engines making the whole system work.
