example abstract  such as Amazon, for example. The key difference is that Google's cybernetic friend is being designed to know us better than we know ourselves—a claim that is frightening at best. But, as the technology develops, people’s perception of Google’s products may evolve. Perhaps some of us will treat it as a ‘Super-Ego’—as defined by Freudian classical psychoanalytical theory; someone that we seek approval from and do not want to disappoint. Others may extend their human capabilities with it and grow Read More

example abstract  46. Here’s a great example, from Fatal Flaws and Technology Choices , a TEC article by Olin Thompson and P.J. Jakovljevic: “One meat processor (which will remain nameless) recently embarked on an application software project. Of course, catchweight was a must-have for its business. The company asked the software salesman if the software had catchweight, and after having to explain the concept at a great length to the salesman (a bad sign), the salesman said “no problem.” It later transpired that t Read More
Supplier Parks - Back to the Future
As supply chains become increasingly integrated and synchronized, we are witnessing the evolution of the business/production models (in some industries) that

As an example of the new time frames at the Ford supplier park, Brose will produce and deliver a door assembly (adding wire-harnesses, speakers, window regulators, etc.) within 120 minutes of receiving an order. Time-to-market may be the biggest driver. Face-to-face interactions between engineers and production personnel at the OEM and the various suppliers allow rapid transfer of knowledge and debugging of problems. The Internet may be great for abstract design efforts like distributed Read More

Beyond the time it takes to fill out these e-forms, there’s always the concern that comes with divulging your information to a third party, who may contact you with promotional offers and such. At best, you are exposed to offerings that truly belong on your long list of software purchase considerations and that you might not have considered otherwise. At worst, however, it’s an unsolicited annoyance. And therein lies the dilemma faced by all sites of this type: how to prov Read More

Justification of ERP Investments Part Three: Costs of Implementing an ERP System
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation costs can be divided into one-time costs and ongoing annual costs. Both types of costs can be segmented into

example abstract  annual costs, along with example calculations for a $100,000 (USD) ERP software package. The one-time and ongoing annual costs for hardware are not included in the example. In many cases, the use of de facto standard hardware means that a firm already has the hardware for an ERP system. The example shown in figure 3.4 indicates an estimated $300,000 (USD) for one time costs and $65,000 (USD) for annual costs related to an ERP system. OnGoing Annual Costs Software . Ongoing software costs should include Read More

Suppose your company is seeking a solution that offers excellent support for payroll management but does not need any of the other features under the human resources criterion. In Relevant's case, you will notice that every rating in the Earnings and Read More

For example, many enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems that work at the plant level now consider quality characteristics to be part of the material's inventory record. Software Suppliers Software suppliers addressing the needs of the quality department fall into two categories, ERP vendors and independent suppliers.

Example: apparel and footwear. Most fashion businesses combine rapidly changing seasonal collections with longer-lasting continuous products.

The Art, Science, and Software behind (Optimal) Retail Pricing - Part 2
Part 1 of this blog post series expanded on some of TEC’s earlier articles about companies’ need for better pricing management and optimization practices. This

example abstract  soft drink product packaging example from Part 1 demonstrates another cannibalistic relationship in which each packing size is potentially a substitute for the others. Conversely, affinity is when the sale of one product has a positive impact on another. This is sometimes also called the  halo effect . For example, a retailer lowers the price on hot dogs and it ends up generating better than usual sales on buns, ketchup, mustard, and relish, all at their normal prices. In other words, complementary Read More

How can organizations in such a situation act effectively to comply with global and local Read More

Acronyms Can Simplify Your Life, or Drive You Insane

You save precious time (not typing enterprise resource planning a million times) and there’s no way your reader won’t understand what ERP means, right? Well, for ERP this may be true, but all acronyms are not as tidy as they appear. What about BPM, for example?
