The disadvantage of this approach is that various related AC powered devices, such as pumps, generators, and switchgear are not readily available in North America at a 400V rating. Therefore at this time the preferred approach is to use the auto transformer as described in this paper. Performance comparison The alternate power distribution system proposed and

Lean Maintenance: Best Practices to Turn Asset Management into a Profit Center


It’s common knowledge that asset downtime disrupts production and drives up both process and per-unit operating costs. However, executives often lose sight of this because they focus on output, not on the assets used to create it. The irony is that companies can use asset performance management not only to make more widgets, but to make each widget more profitably.

The general agenda for the discussions should be published well in advance so that participants come prepared rather than simply showing up for a free-for-all chat session.

An Improved Architecture for High-efficiency, High-density Data Centers


Globally, data center power and cooling infrastructure wastes more than 60 million megawatt-hours per year that do not contribute usefully to powering IT equipment. This is an enormous financial burden on industry, and is a significant public policy environmental issue. Find out about the principles of a new data center architecture that can be implemented today to dramatically improve the electrical efficiency of your data center.

input output elimination  is, some of their input power is dispersed as heat instead of contributing to the mechanical work of cooling). In fact, the inefficiency (waste heat) of cooling equipment typically greatly exceeds the inefficiency (waste heat) of power equipment. When cooling equipment is doubled for redundancy or when the equipment is operated well below its rated power, efficiency falls dramatically. Therefore, an increase in the efficiency of the cooling equipment directly benefits overall system efficiency 3 Power Read More

Production Management Research


Primarily due to rapid development of technology in the past thirty years, the market structure throughout the world has changed considerably. Local markets have become accessible to foreign manufacturers, who are able to perform well in their newly established territories in part due to their superior application of technology. In this light, most companies, including small and medium size, have embedded globalization in their expansion strategies, consistently seeking for new markets abroad. Consequently, local manufacturing companies are facing global competition, forcing them to adopt new concepts with respect to people, process and technologies. This document describes these approaches to production planning in detail as well outlines a software solution. The software solution (Production/3) combines both pull and push techniques and enables small to medium size organizations to fully automate their production system while retaining their investment in their legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.

In this system the entire line constitutes one workstation. Departing jobs send production cards back to the beginning of the line to authorize release of new jobs. The production line consists of a single routing, along which all parts flow and work in process can be measured in units i.e., number of work orders or parts on the line.

Web 2.0: “Code Free” Siebel Web Service Integration


One of the most challenging areas in any Siebel implementation has traditionally been setting up and maintaining interfaces between Siebel and other back-end systems. However, it is now possible to create a real-time web service interface to other applications from Siebel 7.8 or 8.0, without writing a single line of code.

Siebel uses 3 different objects to construct a WSDL: Web Services (Inbound and Outbound) which are administered in the Client Application and primarily define the location of the services; Integration Objects which define the structure of the data that will be used in the interface; and Business Services which define the methods and process-oriented components of the WSDL. These can be pre-built Read More

Function Points: Are They Really the Right Unit of Measure for Software Sizing?


Function points (FPs) are the most popular unit of measure for measuring the size of software. But because FPs were developed in the 1970s, are they not now outdated for today’s event-oriented programming and multi-tiered software architectures?

Even reports are displayed on screen, with a facility to print them out on a printer if desired. EI and EO are elementary processes, where data crosses either into or out of the system boundary. EQ—also known as external inquiry —explicitly mentions an input and an output. Today all applications are event-driven, meaning there is always an input associated with every Read More

Creating Value From Global Commerce Management People, Process and Enablers


Companies are going global because the risk of not doing so greatly outweighs the comfort that staying domestic brings. According to a World Trade Organization (WTO) report issued in October 2004, "Despite the rise in oil prices the volume of world trade is likely to grow by 8.5% in real terms by the end of 2004." The liberalization of trade, the reduction of tariffs, the elimination of quotas, the continued rise in China as an industrial force, and the rise of outsourcing as a cost reduction opportunity, all create an environment that is full of opportunity and fraught with hazards. The ability to effectively manage global commerce will be a key strategic competitive differentiator. Global commerce management (GCM) is what is required by companies to win in this tougher, more competitive environment.
