Advanced Planning: The New Direction of Corporate Budgeting (Передовое планирование: новое направление в составлении корпоративного бюджета) [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 22-06-2006Kenton B. Walker Industrial Management & Data Systems. 1989. Vol. 89. No. 7.
Some of the weaknesses of contemporary computerised financial planning systems and procedures encouraged by batch-processing environments are described. The failure of many levels of corporate management actively to participate in financial planning or to rely on budgets for operating decisions or as a tool for performance evaluation is due to planning processes that force reliance on accounting and information systems personnel rather than depend on the efforts of operating management. A revolutionary new approach to computerised financial planning currently under way at Adolph Coors Company, Golden, Colorado, USA, is discussed.
Client/server infrastructure: a case study in planning and conversion (Инфраструктура "клиент-сервер": исследование случаев в планировании и преобразовании) [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 10-01-2003Wietze A. de Vries, Robert A. Fleck Industrial Management & Data Systems. 1997. Vol. 97. No. 6. P. 222 - 232.
Conversion to client/server systems from host-centric systems can be accomplished with careful attention to planning and development procedures. A key component in a successful conversion is a customized definition of client/server which complements the organization's mission. Another key component is the development of an infrastructure which includes hardware, software and people. The training of users and design personnel is crucial to successful conversion. Discusses definitions, strategies, hardware, software, and the pitfalls to be avoided.
'Continual Improvement' for Competitive Advantage (Непрерывное усовершенствование конкурентного преимущества) [статья]

Continual improvement for competitive advantage is not the primary policy of organisations, either in theory or practice. A deductive rationale is presented for the emerging need to make "continual improvement for competitive advantage" the primary policy of any organisation. This is based on the inexorable acceleration of technical change and the Darwinian selective pressures of competition. Giving primacy to continual improvement naturally gives a different slant to company policies, strategies and objectives by subordinating them. Systematic continual improvement policy generates particular emphasis on people, planning, performance measures and procedures. Inductive study reaches similar conclusions but lacks the cogency of a rational framework. A continual improvement policy is a touchstone for the choice and use of planning and operational practices. A game plan for continual improvement is illustrated that integrates the planning, operation and evaluation of performance for the whole operation, its divisions and their personnel. The self-assessment questionnaire technique offers a quick insight into an organisation's preparedness for gaining competitive advantage through continual improvement.
Human resource assignment system for distribution centers Система распределения обязанностей персонала в центрах дистрибуции [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 10-02-2003Amy J.C. Trappey, Pei-Shun Ho Industrial Management & Data Systems. 2002. Vol. 102. No. 2. P. 64 - 72 (9).
Обсуждается вопрос о развитии модуля распределения человеческих ресурсов (HR-модуля), обычно считающегося существенной частью систем планирования ресурсов предприятий (ERP). Этот модуль предоставляет решающие данные по человеческим ресурсам и обеспечивает поддержку решений по использованию человеческих ресурсов при операциях в центре дистрибуции. Подробно рассматривается ключевой алгоритм HR-модуля, обеспечивающего экономное и эффективное управление рабочей силой в операциях центра логистики/дистрибуции.
Organizational learning in a high-tech environment: from theory to practice (Организационное обучение в высокотехнологичной среде: от теории к практике) [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 09-01-2003Atul Gupta Industrial Management & Data Systems. 2001. No. 9. P. 502-507.
Organization learning has assumed a major role in modern management as a tool for coping with change and uncertainty. Organizations must adapt to shifting demands in an environment where chaos is common. The organizations which can make such changes and thrive are those which embrace the philosophy of organizational learning. This paper is an attempt to assess the application of organization learning concepts using a real organization.
The association of demographic variables and ethical behaviour of information system personnel (Связь демографических переменных и этических установок персонала, занимающегося обслуживанием информационных систем) [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 10-01-2003Debasish Banerjee, Oswald Jones Industrial Management & Data Systems. 1996. Vol. 96. No. 3.
The area of computer abuse and professional ethics in computing is of interest to companies as well as ethics researchers. Expands the research in ethical behaviour of information system employees. Identifies empirically a few demographic variables that are associated with the ethical behaviour of information system (IS) personnel and raises a few issues for IS managers. In addition, indicates that the existing models of ethical behaviour, when used in the computing context, need to be suitably modified by including demographic variables.
The relationship of logistics to supply chain management: developing a common industry definition [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 03-10-2003Rhonda R. Lummus, Dennis W. Krumwiede, Robert J. Vokurka Industrial Management & Data Systems. 2001. Vol. 101. No. 8. P. 426-432.
Over the past few years there has been confusion and disagreement among general business practitioners and operations professionals concerning the terms "logistics" and "supply chain management". Various formal definitions have been offered for both terms. In addition, the common usage of each term in industry varies. Business terms are often defined over time, by the common use or application of the term. Examines the historical definitions of both terms, looks at current practitioner views of the terms, and proposes a hierarchy for the relationship between logistics and supply chain management.
