CPR on BPR: Long Live Business Process Reengineering Part 1: A Primer
Without sound business process analysis, design, and possible re-design or full-blown reengineering in place before you bring in technology, your CRM (or any IT

bpr tqm  lives on? For certain, BPR (Business Process Reengineering), in some form, is still a relevant, nay, crucial, element in today's business world, especially as it pertains to successful implementations of CRM, ERP, and other modern technologies. We could coin yet another acronym or phrase to re-label BPR for the 2000's, but let's not add to the already bloated business acronym lexicon. So 'BPR' is alive and well. What is BPR?  There are many definitions of Business Process Reengineering, but the one I

Indeed, these are some of the typical benefits of deploying BPM systems, but the trouble, called the lack of clarity and consensus, starts with the quandary about what exactly constitutes BPM, and what exact parts and capabilities of BPM help achieve those benefits? In other words, are there more important and better BPM suites Read More

Demand-Driven Strategies for Complex Manufacturing


Many manufacturing companies have adopted or are considering the adoption of a demand-driven strategy. However, if you want to be demand-driven, you aren’t going to achieve it without adopting many of the tools, techniques, and principles that commonly reside within all of them. Some philosophies require a more intense re-engineering of processes and products than others.

How Can IT Help Competitiveness These Bleak Days? - Part 1


A week before this past Thanksgiving holiday (US), I was invited by a long-term analyst relationship contact at SAP to listen to (via multimedia streaming) a panel discussion on a late Friday afternoon. The expert panel explored reasons for companies to maintain IT investment even (if not especially) during difficult economic times. Bruce Richardson, the Chief Research Officer of AMR Research

I think this can often be a seriously oversimplified advice, however logical it might be to “put the house in order first.” Ironically or not, we consistently see companies gain a far better understanding of their business processes specifically through the process of introducing specialized IT tools. Technology alone may not solve the problem, but it plays a much more integral and enforcing role than just automating the Read More

Addressing Strategy Management and the Balanced Scorecard


Organizations often see a significant gap between their strategic plans and their ability to execute them, and many try to implement scorecards to solve precisely this problem. Unfortunately, most organizations look solely at the warning lights (how close are expenses and revenue to budget) rather than focusing on where they want to go—and how they’re going to get there.

It is also very likely that many customers have felt comfortable with a 'one stop shop' service from a long-term, trusting partner. Although Read More

What's Really Driving Business Intelligence?


Typical explanations given for increased spending in business intelligence include, meeting government regulations, managing information overload, tracking corporate goals, and improving competitive response.

Do Chinese Enterprises Really Need MES and WMS?


Despite rapid industrialization in China and other developing countries, most manufacturing execution systems (MES) and warehouse management systems (WMS) are found in North America, Western Europe, and Japan. These systems have made extraordinary productivity gains possible in the West. However, Chinese manufacturers require a new generation of MES and WMS capabilities to boost their productivity.

Is this because enterprises in China and other developing countries don't really need Read More

Quality Management


In today’s global market, providing quality products and services is essential for any manufacturer’s continued growth—but maintaining a competitive edge is not always easy. For success, quality awareness must begin at the conception of the product and continue throughout the various stages of its development. To improve in this area, many manufacturers are now adopting the total quality management (TQM) approach.

ERP Beginner's Guide In So Many Words


ERP remains the information backbone for contemporary manufacturing enterprises.

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
