(File slack is sometimes called padding .) In our tests, Kaspersky's anti-virus products installed easily without a hitch. The user interface was easy to use and their products worked as advertised. We reviewed the documentation carefully, and it was well written and easy to understand. Though the company is based in Moscow, the English

Demand-driven Versus Traditional Materials Requirement Planning


Material requirements planning is a system that strives to plan replenishment just before a withdrawal from stock, which does not work in some manufacturing environments.

slack  there was no inherent slack time in the schedule. The downside of this assumption was that if there were any hiccups in the execution of the plan, the order would most likely be sent to the customer late. Further, if only one part required for the finished product was going to be late, there was no automatic way to know the impact on the other needed parts. The result of the MRP run, which can take several hours in some environments, is supposed to tell planners how to organize their work by releasing Read More

3 Microsoft Shop Myths Dispelled?


Here’s the context: You’re selecting an ERP system. Your office is standardized on Windows and MS Office Suite. Should you select MS Dynamics and become a full-fledged “MS shop”? We’ll look at three reasons you should lean toward MS Dynamics—and then look at why those reasons might be less compelling than you think. Myth #1: User Adoption Is Easy True: User familiarity leads to

slack  might be a little slack if coordination and collaboration are not efficient and effective enough. If you are a Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System user, for example, you might experience compatibility problems for a period of time if you tried to install either Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) or Windows Vista SP1. “We advise Microsoft Dynamics RMS customers to not install either service pack.  Microsoft Dynamics RMS customers running Windows XP SP3 or Windows Vista SP1 should contact Microsoft Read More

i2 Bleeds In Shark-Infested Waters


What a difference a year makes. Two months after the Nike debacle, more than a dozen class action lawsuits for securities fraud are now pending in federal and state courts. Will the SCM vendor find a safe harbor, sink to the bottom, or tread water through 2001?

slack  FreeMarkets picking up the slack in i2's business. User Recommendations The first quarter knocked some of the wind from i2's sails, but this is inevitable given the vendor's breakneck pace over the past few years. i2 does have some significant housekeeping to perform in the way of staff reduction, portfolio rationalization, and customer reeducation, but all growing companies must face these issues and deal with them. Certainly, no one should fear for i2's viability in either the near or longer term. Read More

Lean Manufacturing: Part Two


Part One of the "Lean Manufacturing" series looked at manufacturing wastes, lean principles, and the benefits of lean manufacturing. Here, in Part Two, you'll be taken through the action stage of lean practices: implementing lean. Understand the "5S" program toward implementing lean and begin laying the foundation of a discipline that is necessary for effective implementation of more complicated lean tools such as kanban.
