Lean Simplified: Part 1
Take advantage of expertise about lean manufacturing. With all the discussion, books, Web sites, and other materials on the topic of lean manufacturing, it’s hard to know which resources are credible—much less understand the mounds of information. The first part of this series breaks down the definition of lean manufacturing into easy-to-digest concepts and shares the real-life example of a supplier of remanufactured solvents that is working toward the goal of lean. Get tips on how to determine what you need in your production operation and why.

: Procedures T = Transportation I = Inventory M = Motion E = Employees Under Utilized Defects and rework is probably one of the most easily identifiable wastes because it s tangible; it s something people can see or feel. For example, defects and rework cause companies to spend time correcting mistakes in paperwork or fixing physical problems with machines, just to name a couple. Overproduction can point to the obvious waste: turning out more product than what is needed by the consumer. But it can also

Plex Systems at a Crossroads: Part 1 » The TEC Blog
unnecessary R&D work (am I wrong, or should this not be a fairly manageable task by almost any run-of-the-mill searchable information repository?) Furthermore, some functional requirements by some customers (who are willing to pay) might not be of much relevance to other customers, and why burden the core ERP system with that code (and getting into the “spaghetti code” syndrome of over-engineered products like SAP )? However, in a nutshell, success seems to have been chasing Plex rather than the

be accessed when needed. I was thus wondering what the buying behavior has lately been, i.e., what prospective customers value more: the traditional IFS Applications functionality, the latest technical gadgets, or both. IFS says that it depends on who the buyer is. Namely, if the decision-maker is the CFO/CEO, then they tend to be more concerned with the company’s viability, good references, total cost of ownership (TCO) , etc. If it is the departmental end-user, then business functionality comes

it in the future… I tend to agree with Amy in part. Namely, in light of offering SAP Business ByDesign as an on-demand suite to prospects and SaaS add-ons only to its current customers, isn’t SAP acting a bit in a bipolar manner and contradicting its own “testimony”? Part 4 of this blog series will go back to the company that has inspired this series, Progress Software . The article will analyze what Progress has to offer to its ISV partners.

Talking to an Unrelenting Cloud Enthusiast – Part 1 » The TEC Blog
after all these years, I was recently able to talk at leisure to Xactly’s founder and CEO Christopher Cabrera. Cabrera is a seasoned executive with more than two decades of successful senior management experience at both early-stage and established public companies. At these companies, he has managed sales, marketing, operations, and business development. Prior to founding Xactly Corporation, Cabrera was the senior vice president of operations for Callidus Software , an on-premise enterprise

and UNIT4’s commitment that I might have had (as mentioned in Part 1 ). In hindsight, my initial knee-jerk assessment was way off the mark. UNIT4’s on-premise CODA Financials business continues to provide excellent customer service, while new product updates are being delivered regularly, and the product has a highly professional and experienced team. In fact, not only does on-premise CODA continue, but UNIT4 has been lately putting a lot more “oomph” behind the product in terms of a revamped

good idea and approach, I was also wondering whether Oracle might be working on its arsenal of products to deliver a similar “SharePoint killer” product to curb Microsoft from virally penetrating enterprises. At this stage, Microsoft could be “eating everyone’s lunch” with Microsoft SharePoint when it comes to planting content management, enterprise portals , enterprise search , and collaborative (groupware) software applications .

“SaaS wave 3″ (mentioned in Part 1 ) for vendors (especially start-ups) will come from many new markets that are expected to open for growth opportunities (or access, with lesser barriers of entry) in line with the “Long Tail” theory. This theory posits that the ability to sell a large number of unique items (point solutions, in software terms), each in relatively small quantities, to satisfy small target audiences, will open gates for new market entrants. This ability will require new specializ
