They are similar in function to flight monitors at airports and are especially useful for information that needs to be checked periodically or that triggers some action. Monitors can track lead-times and determine the up-to-date status of outplant operations.

The Wizardry of Business Process Management - Part 4


Part 1 of this blog series started a lengthy discussion about the value proposition and parts-and-parcels of business process management (BPM), with an ensuing focus on Pegasystems (also known as Pega) as one of the leading BPM suite providers. Part 2 then analyzed in depth the vendor’s ability to help business users capture (and then realize) business objectives and intent, while Part 3 focused

Integrations are defined in appropriate forms and are immediately executable, since there is a unified object and data model within a thin-client  Integrated Development Environment (IDE ). This method is in sharp contrast to the still-prevailing approach of deploying a patchwork of BPM modules in a non-declarative modeling manner. In this manner, disparate applications have to be Read More

Implementing Enterprise Resource Planning: Lessons Learned from the Front


Successful enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementations can force organizations to reevaluate their business practices and processes, create a higher understanding of the need for data accuracy, and enable a more effective data-sharing environment.

Five Inventory Areas that Every Process Manufacturer Must Master


While many ERP systems claim to cater to the process manufacturing industry, a closer look reveals that in reality, little distinction is made within ERP applications to readily address the fundamental needs of a process versus a discrete manufacturer. This paper elaborates on one of the most fundamental requirements of process manufacturers—multidimensional inventory—which is noticeably absent from most ERP applications.
