Data Quality: Cost or Profit?
Data quality has direct consequences on a company's bottom-line and its customer relationship management (CRM) strategy. Looking beyond general approaches and

D&B has introduced a uniform coding methodology that associates each individual business with a D-U-N-S number. This number is unique and remains unchanged during the business' life span. D&B created this unique approach to reach and maintain uniformity within its own database. It also offers its customers the same service on a regular basis. Another approach to achieve high-quality data is the use of program tools developed for managing data

ToolsGroup-Statistics-based Supply Chain Planning


ToolsGroup continues to carve out a space for itself in supply chain. Not satisfied with being the last remaining independent multi-echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) vendor, ToolsGroup is pushing forward with broader supply chain capabilities centered around a core statistics-focused demand forecasting capability. While many will argue the virtues of “top down” vs. “middle out” vs. “bottom up”

Example: apparel and footwear. Most fashion businesses combine rapidly changing seasonal collections with longer-lasting continuous products. This means managing at least two different parallel demand streams and inventory processes, each with its own business logic. Fashion businesses must also deal with different styles, colors, and sizes, and Read More

Process Manufacturers--Great Batch, Every Batch


If you run one hundred batches, some will be great, some will be terrible. But what causes some to be great and some to be terrible? Knowing the answer to that question can mean no more terrible batches, many more great ones, and making more money.

When we look at parameter 3 of all lots of ingredient D (D3), we see that all lots of were in spec (between the lower and upper limits of the specification). We also see a very high correlation between the actual specification for each lot and the ranking of the corresponding batch (The lower quality batches correlate to the D3 ingredient being on the lower end of the specification). This high correlation means that controlling D3 can increase our Read More

Continuous Data Quality Management: The Cornerstone of Zero-Latency Business Analytics Part 2: One Solution


Most enterprises fight fires with axes, fire hoses, trucks, and hordes of firemen, but the CDQM approach is a smoke detector. It’s far less expensive to put a fire out when it’s just smoldering, rather than to extinguish a blazing house fire and then remodel the entire house.

A complete data quality scorecard can be constructed based upon the information stored in the Metrics Repository. The interface allows a user to view Read More

Plant-level Systems: Facing and Dealing with Obstacles


Production supervisors and plant managers are constantly fighting problems within a plant because they lack visibility in the supply chain and do not have an automated exception-based management system. However, a value-adding processing layer can create transparency and link information to unify company processes.

For example, SAP relates the experience of a manager of a well-equipped plant at a large, very modern chemical company: 50 percent of the demand that is getting to him is completely invisible until it occurs .

A Road Map to Data Migration Success


Many significant business initiatives and large IT projects depend upon a successful data migration. But when migrated data is transformed for new uses, project teams encounter some very specific management and technical challenges. Minimizing the risk of these tricky migrations requires effective planning and scoping. Read up on the issues unique to data migration projects, and find out how to best approach them.

The parent project may change its approach to implementation, such as moving from a regional phased approach to a product phased approach. For Read More

Profit Optimization - Can We Possibly Argue With The Objective?


The "why" of Profit Optimization is easy? The objective is to increase profits and we can all agree on that objective. The "how" of Profit Optimization is not so easy. The seemingly simple solutions are dependent upon each other and many more variables. Profit Optimization is not a simple objective; it is a very complex objective.

The variables that most control profits are the load factor (the percentage of seats with passengers) and the average revenue per seat. These variables are continually monitored with the price per seat being continually modified to meet the objective of the maximum profit for that flight. The why of Profit Optimization is easy? The objective is to increase profits and we can all agree on that objective. The how of Profit Read More

6 Steps for Linking Corporate Strategy to the Budget


Ask any three people in an organization why they budget and you’ll get three different answers. But no one says they budget in order to direct the way in which their organization will achieve its strategic goals—the intended purpose of the budget. For budgeting to become the relevant process it was meant to be, this gap must be fixed.

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 series, which focuses on the complexity of pricing and promotions in retailing, was inspired by JDA Software’s recent “edu-nouncement” on leading retailers' consumer-centric pricing and promotion strategies and Revionics

In other words, complementary Read More

Is There a Way to Avoid Lengthy Catalog Numbers?


A sales configurator needs to be able to "decipher" products' specifications from a rule-based, constructed catalog number. Part number users should query vendors to determine whether their enterprise solutions cater to the needs of industrial automation manufacturers.

An example to illustrate where intelligent serialization is important would be ensuring that a 480-volt, 5-horsepower, 10-ampere combination of a conductor's features will always be identified with the number 1 in a particular position of the part number. This logic resembles the sequences' and positions' designations in bar codes, where a 480-volt, 10-horsepower, 10-ampere set, for example, annotated with 2 would do the same, and so on. By creating this sort of metadata, one can Read More

The Whitelisting of America: Security for IT


Once upon a time around 1995, the well-known American agency, the National Security Agency (NSA), decided that there was no computer operating system that was adequately secure for their needs.  In analyzing the risks, they found that while UNIX was the most secure, they needed additional protection. They looked at the industry of anti-virus protection, at problems with Trojan software, at the

Selinux has been a great success, and as a result, it is used in many Unix versions and in Red Hat Linux since 2000 and in SUSE Linux since 2005. Whitelisting is proven. More recently Read More
