Tracing Food Quality and Safety, or We Are What We Eat, After All (Part I)


Besides the ongoing (seemingly never-ending) presidential campaign and celebrity scandals/gossip, food safety is very much in the news. Indeed, incidents of outbreaks, contamination, product recalls and whatnot flood TV channels as breaking news every now and then. Consumers, governments and the various members of the food supply chain are rightly concerned about food safety, and there has been

These supply chain member companies have to be concerned about the consumer safety issues, plus the potential negative and even fatal impact on their brands and Read More

Accounting for SMBs: A Solution Beyond Entry-level Systems Red Wing Software


Many SMB companies need more functionality than an entry-level system offers, but cannot afford to pay $15,000 (USD) or more for a higher-end product, nor do they really need the complexity found in these products. Red Wing Software’s TurningPoint is a good mid-market product that plays well in this market.

The Truth about Data Mining


It is now imperative that businesses be prudent. With rising volumes of data, traditional analytical techniques may not be able to discover valuable data. Consequently, data mining technology becomes important. Here is a framework to help understand the data mining process.

Lean Knowledge Work


The Toyota production system has been on one of the most important schools of thought in operations, and has spawned several spin-offs. All these approaches are based on similar principles that are collectively referred to as “lean” ideas. While a lean approach to manufacturing and services is straightforward, applying lean to knowledge work can be challenging. Find out why, and what you can do about it.

Lean Manufacturing: Reaping the Rewards of Lean through Response Management


For years, manufacturers have been driven by sales forecasts and the need to maximize production efficiency at every level of operation. But in order to be successful, manufacturers must look toward adopting a lean mentality. While lean techniques are more easily applied to some manufacturing styles than others, new software tools are now able to deliver the benefits of lean to both high-mix and low-volume operations.

Production and Distribution


Production and distribution are either both performed within an organization, or else one of the functions is outsourced to reduce the overall cost and allow organizations to focus on core competencies. Production is defined as an operation of work performed on goods to make them available for consumption. Distribution encompasses the activities involved in delivering products or services to customers. Every company that handles production or distribution processes faces specific challenges, such as the following:

Mining & Quarrying


Mining is the extraction from the earth of materials used in different human activities (industry, trade, energy production, etc.). There are four major types of materials: precious metals and minerals (gold, diamonds, silver, etc.); materials used to produce energy (coal, uranium, etc.); base metals (copper, iron, etc.); and building materials (stone, sand, gravel) extracted from quarries, which are open-pit mines. There are two major types of activities specific to the mining industry: exploration, which involves the search for materials; and extraction, which is the activity of getting those materials out of the earth.

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.

Contrast that with the development of virtually integrated supply chains during the 80's and 90's: thousands of suppliers dispersed across the globe, each with their own role in the production of a Read More
