Common Pitfalls in Dashboard Design


Dashboards are a popular means to deliver important information at a glance, but their potential is rarely realized. The best software in the world will not produce a useful dashboard without effective visual design. To better understand the concept of business intelligence dashboards in the first place, it is thus vital to understand the common pitfalls of dashboard design.

Realize the Benefits of Design, Operate, Maintain Thinking Today


The key to plant efficiency and profitability is open communication between those who design industrial facilities and those who operate and maintain them. Communication between these entities has long been lacking, however. Companies that use design, operate, and maintain (DOM) concepts can facilitate and standardize their proactive approaches to this open communication—whether collaboration takes place internally, or with outside designers.

PHP Code Design


Interactive web sites are event-driven. With each user click, a menu selection or keyboard action initiates a thread of execution that runs many lines of code. Many Web projects start as small code snippets gathered from open source sites, but as the web site grows, new developers are added to the mix. Without design and documentation tools, the project can become unmanageable, unreliable, insecure, and costly to expand.
