Product Developers Need to Shift to an All-Digital Mindset


Over the past several decades, processes to design and build cars, airplanes, and other products have typically followed a linear, sequential path. But the inefficient flow of information has frequently led to delays in product delivery. To remedy the situation, product development groups are shifting to a more holistic digital mindset using digital business models, processes, and tools. By embracing digital like never before, product developers can become fully integrated digital businesses and, therefore, well positioned to be more competitive.

As another example, an aerospace company has employed 3D printing to lower production costs of maintenance and service parts by millions of dollars.

Supplier Parks - Back to the Future


As supply chains become increasingly integrated and synchronized, we are witnessing the evolution of the business/production models (in some industries) that merge virtual integration with elements of the older vertically integrated enterprise. This has profound consequences, in particular for suppliers to OEMs.

car electronics  such as the 5-day car 3 , pushes postponement further back into the chain e.g. waiting until you actually receive an order before painting the body and installing options. This won''t work if there is an extra day of transportation between suppliers. As an example of the new time frames at the Ford supplier park, Brose will produce and deliver a door assembly (adding wire-harnesses, speakers, window regulators, etc.) within 120 minutes of receiving an order. Time-to-market may be the biggest driver. Read More

Dealership Management System: What Is It and Who Needs It?


What Is a DMS? When one talks about a DMS, people usually think about a document management system, a data management system, or even a destroyer mine sweeper. But very few people know that it’s also the acronym for “dealership management system,” which is a product or package of several products which is created specifically for the automotive industry. The core of any DMS is a

Vox Populi: What Does a Day in the Life of a Regular Business User Look Like?


Vox populi is Latin for “voice of the people”– in broadcasting and television, they use the "vox pop interview" to get spontaneous opinions on a subject, from different, randomly selected people.

Acer to Jump on Internet Appliance Bandwagon


Computer maker Acer is planning to launch a line of Internet appliances at next month's Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas, according to a company source.

car electronics  User Recommendations Users should care about this announcement only if Acer prices its unit low enough - anything over $200 is hardly a bargain. If Acer does fall within this pricing range, then the consumer market is its best target. The business market has limited use for a diskless terminal, with the possible exception of Application Service Provider-related infrastructures. With only a 56K modem initially, this is hardly suitable for ASP use. Acer (and others built on the Web Companion platform) must Read More

A Practical Buying Guide to Cutting through Blade Servers


Just uttering the term "blade server" creates confusion and spawns many questions. That’s because the term is applied to a wide range of hardware and software products that can vary greatly in terms of value, functionality, and fit in the enterprise.

Who Could Object to Faster, More Responsive Supply Chains?
