EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM STATEMENT IN RESEARCH: best illustrated with this example: Consider supply management. Under traditional processes, negotiations focus on price. Lead times, along with flex terms that outline performance responsibilities in the event of inevitable forecast changes, may also be discussed. Data about how these terms impact future cost, value, and risk is rarely available, however, nor are how commitments that quoted terms will be honored under the adverse supply and demand conditions when they matter most. In contrast, under

OS SmackDown!
In the latest escalation in the battle between Windows and Linux, directions on how to replace each with the other have been published on the Web by their respective champions.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM STATEMENT IN RESEARCH: OS SmackDown! OS SmackDown! R. Krause - January 12, 2000 Read Comments Event Summary Recently, Microsoft published instructions on how to remove Linux OS and install Windows 2000/NT4 on the newly-freed-up disk drive. Not to be outdone, Linux-philes have countered by publishing instructions on how to remove a Windows OS and replace it with Linux. To close the circle, Paul Ferris, Editor at Linux Today, highlighted the silliness by publishing his own mostly-joking piece on how to uninstall both Windows and

Who the Heck Needs ROI?
Ten common errors prevent return on investment (ROI) calculations from being used as much or as well as possible. Avoiding intuitive decision making and basing ROI on quantifiable factors is essential to the success of major decisions, including software selection.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM STATEMENT IN RESEARCH: for Real ROI For example, the most important of these seldom-recognized ROI shortcomings is the failure to adequately link the ROI calculations to what really provides value, usually because the real business requirements that provide value (when met) have not been adequately identified. A related reason is focusing too much on the arithmetic calculations and too little on getting the right numbers for the right things for those calculations. Among the right numbers that typical ROI almost always misses

The ERP Ecosystem
Three major parties (vendors, consulting services, and adopting organizations) are identified in the ERP ecosystem, in which different parties need different key success factors. This article also discusses some challenges that may have an impact on the ERP ecosystem.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM STATEMENT IN RESEARCH: (BI) is a recent example that ERP is moving with market needs. Generally speaking, as long as the industry can always stay on the edge of using IT for better business operation and performance, this ecosystem will exist; but one has to be aware that everything has a life span and that commoditization implies it has reached a stage of maturity. There are also external factors that threaten the traditional ERP business model. The first is open source ERP. Developers such as ComPiere and Openbravo represent

The Third Paradigm
Supply chain systems to date have represented the back-end of that process of servicing markets and have taken us a long way in replacing assets with information. But the fact is, building products still takes a long time. Contrastingly, markets require short response times--days. For the last few years, we have begun the process of trying to understand the unplanned event. The first and second paradigm systems deal in knowns--this is what I think I need and therefore this is what I will buy. The Third Paradigm focuses on the uncertainty elements to understand risk. This is the key. Isolate, understand and organize the chaos—creating an operational and financial model.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM STATEMENT IN RESEARCH: FIGURE 2 A simple example will clarify the concept. Firms are reluctant to overbuy stocks. We might wind up with too much inventory, and that capital investment can have a huge opportunity cost—preventing us from making other critical investments. With products where we have a fair knowledge (low risk) of their behavior in the market, we can set up contracts that build in volume discounts, set lead times, and manage a lean inventory model. But in new product introduction, for example, there is much
