IBM & ILOG Matrimony: Good for BPM, Uncertain for SCM? -- Part 1


While my two separate blog post series about workflow automation and Business Process Management (BPM) and about the long tails of supply chains were coming to their respective ends, one event that is curiously pertinent to both topics has meanwhile taken place in the market. Namely, at the end of July 2008, IBM acquired ILOG, a specialized software provider with headquarters in France and the

semiconductor wafer  optimization products at its semiconductor wafer plant in Fishkill, New York, US. Moreover, ILOG’s business rules capability is embedded within IBM WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Application Server . It is interesting to note here that IBM also partners with ILOG's foes Fair Isaac Corporation and Corticon Techologies for their BPM and rules management capabilities. Last but not least, ILOG BRMS engine also runs IBM’s InfoSphere Master Data Management (MDM) Server  and IBM FileNet enterprise Read More

Supply Chain Shorts for the Week of June 17, 2013


Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) brings you a roundup of recent news and happenings from around the supply chain realm. This is not your mother's supply chain news—we try to bring you some news, scoops, and tidbits that we think you may not have caught up with elsewhere.

Supply Chain Shorts for the Week of December 13, 2013


Bob Eastman, senior SCM analyst, brings you a round-up of news from Syspro, American Software, and SERUS.

Although heavily focused on high tech, Serus is quick to say that its value proposition could appeal to any industry vertical that relies on external manufacturing and has manufacturing complexity. Apparel is one example of another industry where Serus is finding some traction, and we would not be surprised to be hearing more about Serus Read More

MAPICS Unifies The Brand And Interacts For CRM Solutions


While the existing loyal client base and affiliate channel remains MAPICS’ trump card in these difficult times, the recent partnership initiatives bundled with a unified product branding might be the way to more effectively sell beyond the current XA client base, which is the must for the long-term viability.

Existing MAPICS XA customers should be asking MAPICS management Read More

The Third Paradigm


Supply chain systems to date have represented the back-end of that process of servicing markets and have taken us a long way in replacing assets with information. But the fact is, building products still takes a long time. Contrastingly, markets require short response times--days. For the last few years, we have begun the process of trying to understand the unplanned event. The first and second paradigm systems deal in knowns--this is what I think I need and therefore this is what I will buy. The Third Paradigm focuses on the uncertainty elements to understand risk. This is the key. Isolate, understand and organize the chaos—creating an operational and financial model.

Product Lifecycle Management Portfolio


The DS PLM solution suite is embodied in four key brands—CATIA, DELMIA, ENOVIA, and SIMULIA—which form one of the industry’s most comprehensive PLM software portfolios. Used separately or collectively, the vendor’s proven applications define, simulate, and optimize all products, processes, and resources in an all-3D environment powered by an open development platform. With DS PLM V5 solutions, all business processes are linked together—including change management, activity and time management, asset management, and more. By enabling employees to collaborate in real time while accessing and sharing the same up-to-date information, companies can increase communication and speed modification, as well as approval processes. As a result, all organizational groups and processes–from design through marketing to maintenance–can share, reuse, and enhance product information in the pursuit of an optimum business strategy. For Virtual Product Design: CATIA CATIA enables users to simulate the entire range of the industrial design process, from concept to product design, analysis, and assembly. The CATIA product line covers all types of design and engineering needs and seamlessly integrates with the vendor’s other brands. For Virtual Production: DELMIA DELMIA enables manufacturers to digitally plan, create, monitor, and control production and maintenance processes. DELMIA applications provide complete coverage of manufacturing processes. For a Global Collaborative Environment: ENOVIA ENOVIA addresses user requirements across the full spectrum of product and business processes, from small-scale teams to extended enterprises with many thousands of users. The ENOVIA portfolio consists of three product lines: • ENOVIA VPLM—management of highly complex product, resource, and manufacturing processes in medium and large extended enterprises • ENOVIA MatrixOne—collaborative product development business processes for enterprises across a wide range of industries, including synchronicity for semiconductor design data management • ENOVIA SmarTeam—collaborative product data management for small to medium businesses, engineering departments of larger organizations, and across supply chains For Virtual Testing: SIMULIA By building on established technology, respected quality, and superior customer service, SIMULIA makes realistic simulation an integral business practice that enables engineers and scientists to improve product performance, reduce the number of physical prototypes, and drive innovation.

The High Costs of Non-compliance for Manufacturers


What manufacturers must realize is that through efforts to comply with regulatory standards, they can make their manufacturing operations more competitive. Indeed, compliance is transforming the companies that have taken the time to re-architect the many processes used for managing suppliers, channel partners, resellers, and customers. For manufacturers that ignore compliance, on the other hand, the costs can be steep.

semiconductor wafer  processes. For example, any semiconductor package contains many homogenous materials including plastic molding material, tin-electroplating coatings on a lead frame, lead frame alloy, and gold-bonding wires. Lead is the RoHS restricted substance used most often in electrical circuits for example. It completes viable electrical connections either in solders or between the semiconductor die-and-carrier within integrated circuit Flip Chip packages.
