Can ERP Speak PLM? Part Two: Examples and Recommendations


Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions have to work with many other systems, not just ERP, so integration is not a new issue for PLM vendors. Most PLM vendors recognize the need for integration and have addressed the need in their toolkits. The additional work comes from integrating the concepts and semantics of one system to the next, if this business level integration has not already been provided between the two systems. This can be a big challenge for best of breed vendors, who may need to rely on systems integrators for much of this conceptual and semantic integration.

examples of an applied research  Speak PLM? Part Two: Examples and Recommendations Are ERP and PLM Speaking the Same Language? Costs are an excellent example of semantic confusion. Accountants know that cost is a not a single characteristic of an item but a category of characteristics. Without answering a series of questions about the cost, the meaning of it is vague. Is the cost the procurement cost from the supplier? Does it include shipping? Does it include tax and duty? Does it include internal overhead, or is it just direct Read More

True, there are multiple measures for distance (miles and kilometers) and for weight (pounds and kilograms). But you can convert pounds into kilograms and miles into kilometers! There is no formula that says 1 use case point is equal to 1.2 function points, or anything like that! Everyone agrees that some things are not Read More

Three Es of CRM

Equity TSC contends that if experience and execution are market- and organization-facing performance capabilities, then equity is the financial barometer by which both are measured. Customer equity has been a developing concept for well over a decade. As a metric, it is defined as the total of the discounted value of all of a firm's customers. Read More

The Seven Types of Power Problems


Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime, software, and data corruption are the result of a problematic power supply. Compounding the problem is that there is no standardized way to describe power problems. Learn more about common power disturbances, what can cause them, and how to safeguard your critical equipment—all described in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard terms.

examples of an applied research  of the more common examples of what can cause an interruption in commercial power systems are utility protective devices, such as automatic circuit reclosers. Reclosers determine the length of time of most interruptions, depending on the nature of the fault. Reclosers are devices used by utility companies to sense the rise in current from a short circuit in the utility infrastructure, and to shut off the supply power when this occurs. The recloser will, after a set time bring power back on line, in an Read More

Future of MOOCs—Repurposing for Enterprise Learning?


A variety of massive open online courses, commonly referred to as MOOCs, are available to individuals worldwide. While the long-standing impact of MOOCs on enterprise learning may be obvious, TEC’s research analyst Raluca Druta predicts that enterprise learning itself will have a huge impact on the design and development of MOOCs in the future. But here’s a word of caution for the repurposing of MOOCs.
