IFS Joins the Corporate Social Responsibility Fray


While day 1 of the IFS World Conference 2012 in Gothenburg, Sweden was mostly about mobility, day 2 expanded into some other interesting themes and topics. IFS has long positioned itself as a single-instance global enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution alternative to SAP and Oracle. The realm of corporate social responsibility (CSR) presents notable challenges for organizations due to the

It will be interesting to watch whether IFS customers will opt for these capabilities from their ERP or their PLM provider. It is also interesting that these features are delivered on-premise as part of the core IFS Applications suite. In contrast, SAP offers SAP Carbon Impact OnDemand (former Clear Standards) as a cloud service.   TEC blog post (Oct 2011): IFS: Of Vertical Focus, and Read More

What’s All This Benchmark Stuff, Anyway?

Tentative Unification in Server I/O Architecture Battle

Assuming the unification is completed (>90% probability), this means that a Read More

Debunking the Myths Surrounding Computer-based Scheduling


To expedite planning production, many companies have gone the way of integration with a manufacturing resource planning (MRP) or enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Although these systems have paved the way in planning production, they can leave a lot to be desired. Learn how manufacturing production scheduling (MPS) can be enhanced by finite scheduling and advanced planning and scheduling (APS) systems.

CAD Model Quality Testing


With 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) models taking on a broader and more significant role in the development of new products, CAD files must flow smoothly into downstream applications. Sometimes, however, errors do occur. An off-the-shelf software tool can detect problems in the design stage so they aren’t discovered at a crucial moment in the manufacturing process, when it may be costly—or even too late—to correct them.
