MCA TMA: What’s New at MCA Solutions? What’s New at MCA Solutions? P.J. Jakovljevic - March 30, 2011 Read Comments One of my first blog posts for Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) way back in 2008 ( The TEC Blog started in late 2007) was about the importance and complexity of aftermarket service, and featured MCA Solutions , and to a degree, its fierce competitor Servigistics (see blog posts ).

Will Servigistics Click on More Service Cylinders? – Part 2 » The TEC Blog
contrast to AMR Research, MCA Solutions , which has for now decided to remain a spare parts planning and optimization specialist (and thus a much smaller, albeit arguably more focused, company), immediately came up with its own damning blog post . Sure, MCA has an ax to grind here, but one cannot argue with some of the facts put forth in the blog post. Especially intriguing is the following excerpt: “…this is not a merger of two companies but rather an acquisition of two financially distressed

A Modern Tale of Long (Supply Chain) Tails -- Part I » The TEC Blog
earlier blog post on MCA Solutions ), privately-held ToolsGroup, with North American headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts,  and with several offices in Europe and elsewhere, traces its roots back to the academic world. To be precise, it originated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Draper Laboratories , a world-renowned research & development (R&D) center. It was there that Eugenio Cornacchia, now ToolsGroup’s Chief Scientist and co-founder, began to develop a new inventory

Avoid the Perils of Service Parts Planning in Supply Chain Management
Significant differences exist between the new parts production supply chain and the service and replacement parts supply chain. Companies using conventional, new product inventory methods are missing opportunities to improve efficiency and effectiveness.

MCA TMA: service supply chains. Source: MCA Solutions Replenishment processes for service and replacement parts differ significantly from those for new products too, since new product inventories are always replenished from regularly (if not continually) running production batches. The key issue is to synchronize distribution needs and production schedules. Again, breakdown repair is a major source for service and replacement part inventories, especially for expensive products (whereas some spare widgets can

Two Stalwart Vendors Discuss Market Trends
In this unique question and answer series, vendors were given the opportunity to put forth their views on market trends, platform approaches, and mid-market issues. The questions posed to willing participants of this opinion poll are elaborated on here.

MCA TMA: of the market (including MCA Solutions , Visiprise , Vendavo , SmartOps , Callidus , etc.) that are even on its price lists, with joint selling and profit-sharing efforts, is really impressive (like Microsoft s Industry Builder ). While Oracle will point out that it too has a number of partners, these partners are still largely those that leverage the technology stack, while it seems unclear as to whether these partners are involved with joint development of applications with Oracle.

Navigating Between Service Management Scylla & Charybdis – Part 1 » The TEC Blog
my  blog series on MCA Solutions and Servigistics , understanding the various levels of criticality of certain parts to product uptime and balancing the tradeoff between service levels and the service parts inventory budget are extremely valuable but challenging propositions. Software-based mathematical models are being used to support some key functions, such as determining optimum network design, calculating the  mean time between failures (MTBF)  , and optimizing the tradeoff between maximizing

PTC Acquires Servigistics – Doubles Up on Its “Product and Service Advantage” Mantra » The TEC Blog
fiercely competing offerings by MCA Solutions and Servigistics in parts planning , while 4CS and Servigistics were also competitors in warranty management. Arbortext, MKS, Servigistics, 4CS, Polyplan, Relex , etc are all complicated code bases with substantial costs associated to advance moving forward. PTC can either leave them as separate systems and hide them under the Windchill brand or its can try to duplicate/migrate on to the underlying Windchill technology. Either way, the costs over the

Application Giants in Duel and Duet for Users’ Hearts, Minds … and Wallets
While SAP and Microsoft are concurrently partnering for certain initiatives, they are still dueling about who is bigger, better, smarter, whose user screens are prettier and more user-friendly, and so on. But the major question is whether the market and users are ultimately going to be better for it.
