However, companies were able to afford to keep inventory on hand to satisfy customer demand. It was the age of the reorder point system (ROP) where the assumption was that the customer would continue to order what they had before and the future would look very much like the past. In most industries this was a valid assumption, since product life cycles were

The Wave of the Future for PCB Manufacturing


Few printed circuit board (PCB) companies create dedicated engineering system, and even fewer are successful when they do. Some computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) suppliers promise the capability to customize their systems—but the task is usually left to overburdened engineering and IT staff. So how do you transform engineering from organizational bottleneck to a corporate asset?

Business Solutions of the Future


The future is tomorrow’s present. Many have tried to predict it using silly or scientific methods, from chiromancy (palm reading), aleuromancy (fortune cookies), and other -mancies, to the three Ps (possible, probable, and preferable futures) and a W (or wildcard—low-probability events with a high impact on the future) used in futurology. Without trying to create a “CRMorology” or

An ordinary computer would take up an entire room and very few people would have thought that you could store hundreds of books on a piece of metal called a hard drive. Even more things can happen in a hundred years: we went from chariots to planes and from the telegraph to the BlackBerry in a century. But trends in the evolution of technology and science can change. Also, it will probably take us a while to accommodate all the amazing discoveries of the last couple of centuries, and this Read More

The Many Faces of PLM Part Two: The Future of the PLM Suite


The future of the PLM Suite will include more applications that cover product-related functionality and further expand the benefits available. As the PLM Suite matures, companies will benefit from increased functionality and increased integration between business processes. The ultimate expression of this more mature solution will result in a broad suite of focused, integrated applications that leverage a core of unified, structured product data - the PLM Platform.

computer future  destined to collide is Computer Aided Process Planning, or CAPP. CAPP manages and captures the processes by which complex assemblies are produced and maintained. This product-related information is currently addressed by applications from companies like HMS Software and iBASEt, and is more tightly aligned with Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) than with PLM. Where is the logical end to the expansion of the footprint and the consolidation of markets into PLM? One could argue that there will be Read More

Future of MOOCs—Repurposing for Enterprise Learning?


A variety of massive open online courses, commonly referred to as MOOCs, are available to individuals worldwide. While the long-standing impact of MOOCs on enterprise learning may be obvious, TEC’s research analyst Raluca Druta predicts that enterprise learning itself will have a huge impact on the design and development of MOOCs in the future. But here’s a word of caution for the repurposing of MOOCs.

computer future  of MOOCs—Repurposing for Enterprise Learning? The idea of open online courses appeared as a form of online learning primarily for higher education institutions in the late 1990s, early 2000s. According to Wikipedia, the MOOC concept stems from the open educational resources movement—“freely accessible, openly licensed documents and media that are useful for teaching, learning, educational, assessment and research purposes.” The term itself stands for “massive open online course.” It Read More
