Usability
Poor usability leads to irritation and fatigue and it has an adverse impact on the usage experience. In an on-line shopping web site, it can lead to loss of revenues. Poor usability in business applications leads to increased help desk costs. On the other hand, better usability makes our usage experience more fun and can increase productivity. A highly usable on-line shopping web site tempts repeat visits, builds customer loyalty, and increases its revenue-earning potential.

Predictive Demand Supply
If you're in the supply chain business, right up there with Newton's law of gravity stands Murphy's other law stipulating that demand and supply, if left to their own tendencies, will always tend to diverge and get you in trouble. Welcome to the world of predictive demand and supply planning whose mission is to predict imbalances as far in advance as possible, in order to provide ample time and opportunity to design and implement corrective sales and operations solutions. So how do we design a system for identifying potential issues and expressing them via a commonly understood key process indicator (KPI) where the cause and effect of our actions can be readily measured? Read this article by the former director of Dell's operations and demand management.

Ann Grackin - March 18, 2005 Read Comments Introduction Recently I spoke at the National Retail Federation[1] in the center of retail: New York City!

“Whistler” Beta on the Web?
Source code for a future Microsoft OS, code-named “Whistler”, mysteriously appeared on the Internet in mid-March. How did it get there? Does it matter? And why does Microsoft management keep making statements that are later retracted?

EXAMPLE OF STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM IN A RESEARCH PAPER: 2000 was a prime example of this. We think it prudent for customers to expect that Whistler will not be delivered when everyone is assuming it will be delivered. Customers should take this into account when scheduling OS purchasing/upgrade decisions. There is insufficient detail regarding planned features to determine if upgrading to Whistler will be more like Windows 98 (mild feature change, mild impact) or like Windows 2000 (major feature change, major impact).
