There is a significant gap between how manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. Better education in project management methodologies and standalone software tools alone will limit a company’s ability to perform at its highest level. A study by Engineering.com found that a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution is the best way for a company to fully achieve its best practices.
This white paper shares how a PLM solution with embedded project management can uniquely provide:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio
• Coordination of a project’s schedule, resources and scope
• Automatic real-time status updates of project tasks
• Mitigation of project risks based upon real-time assessment of product development
Benefit from the unique value provided by PLM systems with embedded project management.
The goal of warehouse operations is perfect order fulfillment: to deliver exactly the items a customer ordered, on time and with optimal efficiency. The warehouse module of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution can help smaller warehouses achieve this goal. But ERP warehouse modules have limitations that can make it smarter for companies with more complex operations to turn to the added capabilities of an advanced warehouse management system (WMS).
El objetivo de las operaciones de un almacén es dar una respuesta perfecta los pedidos: entregar exactamente lo que un cliente pide, a tiempo y con una eficiencia óptima. El módulo de almacenes de una solución de planificación de recursos empresariales (ERP – Enterprise Resources Management) puede ayudar a los almacenes más pequeños. Pero los módulos de gestión de almacenes de los ERP tienen limitaciones y, en el caso de empresas con operaciones más complejas, puede ser más inteligente optar por las capacidades adicionales de un sistema de gestión de almacenes avanzado (WMS, Warehouse Management System).
NICE has made a significant investment into AI and ML techniques that are embedded into its core workforce management solution, NICE WFM. Recent advancements include learning models that find hidden patterns in the historical data used to generate forecasts for volume and work time. NICE WFM also has an AI tool that determines, from a series of more than 40 models, which single model will produce the best results for each work type being forecasted. NICE has also included machine learning in its scheduling processes which are discussed at length in the white paper.
NICE WFM 7.0’s Forecaster unlocks a high level of transparency into interaction history, allowing you to centrally forecast, schedule and manage contacts between multiple locations and ensure that site- and enterpriselevel objectives are met. With more than two thousand customers and two million users depending on its unparalleled ability to fine-tune the most precise forecasts, Forecaster allows you to plan and respond to the peaks and valleys of customer history through automatic collection of key historical data from all types of contact sources:
• Automatic call distributors (ACDs)
• Outbound dialers • Multi-channel routing platforms
• Back-office employee desktops

A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source.
Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.
Ron the CIO challenges IT operations to cut 70% off of the application deployment schedule. Are his application, security, and network teams up to the task? How can SDN in the data center provide a powerful answer?
Although typically thought of as an artifact of legacy computing, batch processes remain vital to today’s real-time enterprises. Behind the real time systems that power the real time enterprise, such as customer order fulfillment, account management, supply chain scheduling and optimization, or financial trading systems, are regularly-updated back office business systems. Over the years, batch technology has evolved from script-based automation to rules or policy-driven workload automation.
This IDC White Paper presents an overview of key concerns driving IT management and how they translate into needs that can be addressed through modern approaches to job scheduling and workload automation. The paper traces evolutionary trends in job scheduling software, which is growing from traditional batch job schedulers to cross-platform and event-driven capabilities. It also explores the role of job schedulers in providing automation capabilities.
Enterprise Job Scheduling, once the back office function of Operations in the mainframe world, has evolved to become a critical factor in the real time enterprise (RTE). Think you know all there is to know about job scheduling? Take another look and learn how the next generation of job scheduling is evolving into IT Workload Automation, and how CA can help your company realize the real time enterprise.
All things that can be automated will be automated. Beyond the careful choreography of sophisticated workflow, managing myriad simultaneous requests puts unprecedented demand on the software that must schedule and perpetually deliver against well-defined service levels, in real time. Gone are the days of simple batch processing. Welcome to the oh-so-very-flat world that is embracing service-oriented architectures, grid architectures, expansive ecosystems, and end-to-end processing. Workload scheduling has got to grow up.
While companies cope with increasing demands for speed from their customers, shareholders and customers alike demand that they make these changes cheaply, with minimal risk and with as few people resources as possible. Is there any way to meet these challenges? Take another look at modern enterprise job scheduling to see how it enables the real-time environment (RTE).
A short time ago, Dell, like many other companies, embarked on a broad initiative to integrate and upgrade its IT services to better satisfy business needs. As part of this initiative, Dell addressed a job scheduling solution that had failed to keep pace with ITIL_ integration. In enterprises around the world, stale job scheduling software lingers for fear of the costs and risks of conversion. Learn more today!
Companies running legacy job scheduling products suffer from higher costs, inefficient use of resources, and greater IT complexity, according to independent analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates. Read their findings, and see why consolidating on a single, comprehensive workload automation solution is an easy win for IT and the business.
Enterprise job scheduling is a mature and mission-critical IT capability that supports some of the most important business processes throughout a modern enterprise. Areas like accounting, ordering, inventory, and procurement are all likely to rely on job scheduling technology. Most common job scheduling architectures involve deploying agent software on every system in the enterprise. However, depending on the parameters of the situation, these agents may be more expensive to install and maintain. Learn more today!
