What if you could deliver on time, every time? Every day, you race against time. Competition is fierce, so you need to get to market quicker and do a better job of matching up supply with demand. And no matter how complex your supply chain is, you need to respond faster to change, reduce excess inventory, and cut costs. Most importantly, you’ve got to give customers what you promised them, at the time you promised it. And here’s the good news: Not only can you meet these expectations, you can beat them. The secret is to find an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system that improves productivity, both in the office and on the shop floor.Read More

Duncan Angove is president of products and support at Infor. Here he gives his views on the importance of speed in business.
Infor says speed is a competitive weapon. Why?
We believe that speed—not just scale—is the new basis for competition. It’s no longer about how big a company is; it’s about how fast you can execute. You may never be able to out-scale a competitor, but you can outrun them. Doing something faster than your competition is one of the most important things you can do to stay ahead of the game.Read More
Formula for a faster business
For food and beverage companies, business is always a race. You need to increase the speed of innovation, so you can introduce new products quickly to meet changing customer tastes and beat competitive pressures. At the same time, you must speed up response to compliance requirements, quickly updating formulations, specifications, and labels to meet constantly changing regulations. That means you’ll want to accelerate your supply chain to develop the agility to deal with fluctuations in raw materials, production, and shipping.Read More
From a recent article about GE in The Atlantic Magazine, the following conclusions are made:
Changes in the global economy are coming into focus:
Oil prices are three times what they were in 2000, making cargo-ship fuel much more expensive now than it was then.
The natural-gas boom in the U.S. has dramatically lowered the cost for running something as energy-intensive as a factory here at home. (Natural gas now costs four times as much in Asia as it does in the U.S.)
In dollars, wages in China are some five times what they were in 2000—and they are expected to keep rising 18 percent a year.
American unions are changing their priorities. Appliance Park’s union was so fractious in the ’70s and ’80s that the place was known as “Strike City” (GE's complex in Louisville). That same union agreed to a two-tier wage scale in 2005—and today, 70 percent of the jobs there are on the lower tier, which starts at just over $13.50 an hour, almost $8 less than what the starting wage used to be.
U.S. labor productivity has continued its march upward, meaning that labor costs have become a smaller and smaller proportion of the total cost of finished goods. You simply can’t save much money chasing wages anymore.
DO BUSINESS BETTER
Increasingly, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), contractors, and suppliers in the aerospace industry find themselves in a tailspin in an uncertain economic environment. Given the daunting challenges of growing competition, escalating energy and raw material costs, fixed-priced contracts, market unpredictability, and security issues, running a profitable business has become harder than ever.

Speed is essential not only in engineering and product development, but also in production and aftermarket services to bring new value to the total equipment lifecycle.
