Paradoxes of Software Estimation
Software development has spawned an independent industry in its own right. But the processes of asking for service, offering service, and pricing are all

examples of scientific methods  measures of software size: examples include lines of code, function points, use case points, object points, feature points, internet points, test points, and there may even be 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...

An Analyst's View of Process Industry SMB Challenges
Process manufacturing industries have distinct needs from an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Here’s an overview of what process manufacturing

examples of scientific methods  achieve product consistency (two examples are textiles, with dye lots and finishing, and bakeries, with oven scheduling, and aerospace, with electroplating, etc.). That some factors are out of the control of process manufacturing vendors is exemplified by the retail industry. In this industry, the vendor has a many-stop supply chain, and plays a role almost like that of the caboose at the end of a long train. For example, chain stores track sales at the cash register, and use that information to Read More...
RFID Case Study: Gillette and Provia Part Two: Challenges and Lessons Learned
Compliance with the market RFID mandate has unfortunately preceded the achievements of applied physics and computer science. One of the main obstacles is the

While an additional software layer might help with verifying and reconciling inconsistencies and overflowing or missing data, it is apparent that RFID imposes quite a more complex data manipulation. This is Part Two of a two-part Case Study. Part One provided Background and Set the Goals. Auxiliary Challenges Having also experienced some occasional auxiliary Read More...
Software for Real People Part One: MindManager Feature and Functions

The answer to this is very simple: The foundation of productivity is human creativity, plain and simple. Productivity is really the result of someone looking at a situation in a different way—of someone taking the same information and seeing an alternate reality. There is probably little disagreement in this observation, but the reader is most likely asking why an article discussing Read More...
How One Vendor Parlays Price Variation into Profit Improvement Opportunities
Rather than sticking to such outdated and speculative pricing practices as

Examples of Precision Price Segmentation (Zilliant, 2006) To mitigate the impact of data sparsity (that is, setting prices where too little data exists), the second precision aspect concerns the concept of actionable price segments. While every possible combination of attribute values defines a unique price segment, Precision Price Segmentation automatically filters out any combinations that do not occur frequently enough to generate a statistically significant data set. To that Read More...

examples of scientific methods  mode: Benefits and Risks of Energy-saving Modes of UPS Operation Many newer uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) systems have an energy-saving operating mode known as “eco-mode” or by some other descriptor. Nevertheless, surveys show that few data centers actually use this mode, because of the known or anticipated side effects. Unfortunately, the marketing materials for these operating modes do not adequately explain the cost/benefit tradeoffs. This paper shows that eco-mode provides a reduction of Read More...
