Mining & Quarrying


Mining is the extraction from the earth of materials used in different human activities (industry, trade, energy production, etc.). There are four major types of materials: precious metals and minerals (gold, diamonds, silver, etc.); materials used to produce energy (coal, uranium, etc.); base metals (copper, iron, etc.); and building materials (stone, sand, gravel) extracted from quarries, which are open-pit mines.

PROACTIS: The Best-kept Secret in Indirect Spend Management? - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series introduced PROACTIS, a UK- and US-based specialist vendor of spend control and e-procurement solutions with accredited partners worldwide. I had the chance to meet the company during my attendance of UNIT4’s UK user event in early 2010, where PROACTIS was an exhibiting partner.

Global Trade Applications in Global Credit Crunch - Part I


I have done blog posts lately on how some supply chain management (SCM) applications could fare in a down economy. One was about pricing optimization solutions while the other one was about how sourcing and procurement can help enterprises in a down economy. But in the meantime the global credit crunch has dawned with a vengeance. This has not only promoted the economic downturn and recession

Ordinary people don''t understand that with all that economic lubricant now being all but dried up, their lives may likely be very negatively impacted, and quite soon.

Who Needs Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Anyway?


What is EAM? As the acronym implies, EAM is used to manage assets in a company, which can be a module in an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution or a standalone product. EAM is also known as computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), or computerized maintenance management information system (CIMMS), and it is a software package used to plan, control, and monitor assets from

etc s.r.o.  as vehicles, machinery, buildings, etc. There are exceptions when non-tangible assets are managed for industries such as IT or media. Another thing worth mentioning is the value and the importance of the assets you intend to manage using EAM.

Who Offers EAM? There are business software vendors who specialize in EAM ( Read More

Being a human resources (HR) and customer relationship management (CRM) analyst is definitely a privilege.

Remapping the Supply Chain Universe, by Ann Grackin and Sree Hameed


Supply chain management is a truly dynamic field.
