Managed Print Services: An SMB priority


Printers can place a huge administrative burden on small to medium businesses (SMBs), which diverts them from their core activities. The solution is to use a managed print service (MPS), combining hardware, service, and supplies into a service based on cost-per-page. This paper discusses the printing challenges faced by SMBs and how a simple and flexible MPS can help save time and money while improving staff productivity.

Master Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling Software: Hard Facts Part Two: Materials Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling


Most of the manufacturing software vendors have planning and scheduling software which assume either infinite production capacity for calculating quantities of raw material and work in progress (WIP) requirements or infinite quantities of raw and WIP materials for calculating production capacity. There are many problems with this approach. This paper discusses the pitfalls of this approach and how to avoid these by making sure that the software you buy indeed takes into account finite quantities of required materials as well as finite capacities of work centers in your manufacturing facility.

mps  has excellent MRP and MPS capabilities is a must. Materials Planning When fulfilling your orders, you cannot assume infinites. That is, you cannot assume you have infinite manufacturing capacity available, infinite access to quantities of raw material, and that infinite quantities of work in progress (WIP) materials can be produced by your manufacturing units. You always have fixed suppliers who supply fixed quantities of raw materials. Suppliers may be able to stretch a bit to give you more raw materials Read More

The Evolving MPS Landscape


Managed print services (MPSs) offer organizations the opportunity to control costs, reduce the complexity of managing a heterogeneous infrastructure, and improve business processes. With many organizations striving to do more with less, MPS can cut expenses by passing control of complex printing infrastructure to the experts, and leaving the organization to focus on its core business competencies. Find out more.

Service Excellence and Managed Print Services


Many organizations are turning to managed print services (MPS) and benefitting from greater expertise, lower costs, and reduced IT burden. However, some MPS engagements are falling short in delivering the expected service quality. This white paper shows how by ensuring governance is an essential part of any MPS contract, both parties can better set appropriate expectations and increase their chances of creating an effective and successful MPS relationship.

Inflation’s Demise: The Impact on Business Informa


Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) business models and information systems originated in the 1970s and 1980s, an inflationary period. They addressed business priorities that were strongly influenced by inflation. Many manufacturers are now confronting worldwide price stability, or even deflationary pressure, and can

Continued deployment of quality assurance and control tools for the purpose of improving finished product yields and minimizing waste can also be expected. Summary Manufacturers' business priorities will change significantly if a worldwide transition Read More

SAP APO: Will it Fill the Gap?

Furthermore, the front-end Delphi graphical interface allows users to manipulate or search for data, while Microsoft Terminal Server ( MTS ) and Citrix Read More

The Magic Behind Planning and Executing (Optimal) Service Supply Chains - Part 1


The recent three-part series entitled “Navigating Between Service Management Scylla @ Charybdis” analyzed the phenomenon of service economy, or the increasing importance of the service sector in industrialized economies. But while the vast customer service software market’s opportunity was examined there, the series also pointed out the treacherous complexity of planning
