Vendors Beware! It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It.
A study from Iowa State University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering suggests that the format and organization of a proposal can significantly

engineering proposals  Beware! It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It. Overview Like most Associate Professors, Dr. Daniel Berleant has to apply for funding to support his research and graduate students. So he writes proposals. Naturally he wins some and he loses some. Being a scientist, after all, he wondered whether there were factors beyond the content of the proposals that affected the chances of success. So he did a study, which was published in the Communications of the ACM , a leading professional journal.

The Practical Realities of Automating ETO Business Processes


Today, engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers—also known as project-based manufacturers—experience significant market pressure across their sales, engineering and manufacturing groups as they strive to win business and streamline end-to-end processes. But by capturing engineering knowledge and using it to automate key business processes, manufacturers can increase sales bid and win rates, decrease internal operating expenses, and shorten lead times.

engineering proposals  redeployed to sales and engineering teams on a regular basis or as necessary to make sure the latest sets of lessons learned are being put to good use. With RuleStream,B&W proposals reflect a more accurate depiction of system performance much earlier in the game,and without a lot of approximation and guesswork. RuleStream lets us get so close to the final design that it takes a lot less review. The whole proposal process is much faster, which lets us respond to client RFPs more quickly.

Project-oriented Software: Many Choices, Many Differences


Professional service organizations sell not just time, but knowledge. Thus, in addition to time and expense management, a business management software product must support a means for knowing how this knowledge is tracked, assigned, managed, and billed. But which product?

Competitive Advantages The distinguishing feature of Deltek FMS is that it is a real-time system: data is instantly available in all reports and graphs once it has been entered into the database. Written in FoxPro with a FoxBASE database, Deltek FMS uses drop-down boxes to select menu options once a module has been selected from the tool bar. Read More

Engineering and Environmental Simulation Software for the Mining Industry


Mine evaluation studies, including those that support mine water management or environmental compliance, are rife with challenges. The biggest: to quantitatively evaluate alternative approaches for completing projects, and to identify and manage associated risks. Models must be accurate, and yet still take uncertainty into account. Learn how a simulation tool can you help forecast the behavior of complex mining systems.

Network Traffic Engineering Guidelines for Fibre Channel Switches


Scalability—or performance? In the past, storage area network (SAN) architects had to choose one over the other with regard to their SANs. Now, however, compromise is no longer necessary. Stackable switch solutions allow for seamless scaling and high performance—which means you can breathe as easily as your data transfers.

Case Study: ServiceMax Helps Kinetico Cut Work Order Resolution Time in Half


Kinetico, a global leader in engineering and manufacturing water treatment systems, was using spreadsheets to schedule and track their technician partners and used e-mail to assign work orders and to debrief. As Kinetico grew, it was missing deadlines and had little insight or metrics related to service performance. See how the ServiceMax put field service back in the hands of its partners and succeed in their service operations.

Administering Responsible Inheritance Engineering


For many projects, the transition from initiative to production is chaotic and lacks a pragmatic framework for ongoing support. Inheritance Engineering offers a means for carrying out change in a reliable fashion and retaining as much value as possible throughout the life of the software. Unfortunately, this does not occur for a variety of reasons. Find out what those reasons are, and how to address software maintenance.

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?
