  • Hands‐On Learning in the Classroom

    Most product training begins with a problem. The problem may be real, and it may be that training is part of the solution. It takes time and effort to create one that is broad enough to cover any learning application, but specific enough to define the approach one should take and demand consistency. This chapter looks at the strategy, structure, and delivery of product training, and considers a class that one might teach or have recently taught on one of the products or a technology of one's choice. All product training is driven by a business strategy. Too many instructors have been told it is their presentation skills that need to improve, when the structure of the training course is the real problem or when the lack of a forward‐thinking strategy would doom the training anyway. But it is important to hang those pictures--to perfect those delivery skills.

  • Structure of Global Supply Chains:The Design and Location of Sourcing, production and Distribution Facility Networks for Global Markets

    Global supply chain management is a core business process of the utmost strategic importance that all global firms have to manage. The Structure of Global Supply Chains provides a better understanding for the development of the right "footprint" of a global firm in its effort to supply its markets in environments of fast paced competition and tremendous uncertainty. The authors focus on the structure of global supply chains and the detailed choices involving the network of facilities at all stages of the supply chain in order to successfully execute the global business strategy. The main purpose of The Structure of Global Supply Chains is to go beyond an elementary exposition of global supply chain network design issues using the latest research to identify the multiplicity of factors that contribute to designing these networks for competitive advantage of the global firm, while at the same time exposing both the successful features and the challenges faced by decision support systems developed to address such decisions. The emphasis is on presenting approaches built on operations and supply chain modeling research and support tools based on academic and industrial research of the last two decades. The Structure of Global Supply Chains provides the reader with comprehensive answers to how should a global firm configure its network of facilities and what dynamic approaches to use to effectively reconfigure it in an effort to meet demand in global markets in a profit maximizing way of sustainable profitability and competitive advantage.

  • IoT REVOLUTION IN OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

    Internet of Things (loTs) is a popular term in the context of the emerging technology revolution that has created a highly connected world. The oil and gas (O&G;) industry cannot remain immune to the impact of IoT. O&G; industry has one of the most complex operations of any industry. A simple error in operations could be fatal in terms of human life; hence the industry focuses a lot of health, safety, and environment (HSE) metrics, and the higher safety score of HSE derives the business strategy and then the revenue and profits. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is the name for remote monitoring and controlling machines using coded signals over communication channels. It is a type of industrial control system (ICS). The traditional SCADA systems leverage extensively the human‐machine interface (HCI) so that human operators can take appropriate actions needed to run smooth operations.

  • DaaS Strategy and Reference Architecture

    This chapter explains the significance of formally creating an enterprise data strategy in an organization while formulating a long-term roadmap to deliver Data as a Service (DaaS). Critical success factors (CSF) play a key role in linking data strategy to the underlying business strategy driving an organization. The chapter presents a reference architecture for the DaaS framework that provides details on the various components required for publishing data services. Having a high-level, functional understanding of the various reference architecture-related components and patterns is crucial for implementing a successful DaaS program in any organization. The reference architecture should be particularly beneficial to readers in terms of explaining foundational aspects of DaaS because it is independent of specific standards, technologies, implementations, or other concrete details. The chapter provides a brief overview of the DaaS reference architecture's components at a logical level.

  • “The Golden Years,” 2008–2011

    Internet trolls live to upset as many people as possible, using all the technical and psychological tools at their disposal. They gleefully whip the media into a frenzy over a fake teen drug crisis; they post offensive messages on Facebook memorial pages, traumatizing grief-stricken friends and family; they use unabashedly racist language and images. They take pleasure in ruining a complete stranger's day and find amusement in their victim's anguish. In short, trolling is the obstacle to a kinder, gentler Internet. To quote a famous Internet meme, trolling is why we can't have nice things online. Or at least that's what we have been led to believe. In this provocative book, Whitney Phillips argues that trolling, widely condemned as obscene and deviant, actually fits comfortably within the contemporary media landscape. Trolling may be obscene, but, Phillips argues, it isn't all that deviant. Trolls' actions are born of and fueled by culturally sanctioned impulses -- which are ust as damaging as the trolls' most disruptive behaviors. Phillips describes, for example, the relationship between trolling and sensationalist corporate media -- pointing out that for trolls, exploitation is a leisure activity; for media, it's a business strategy. She shows how trolls, "the grimacing poster children for a socially networked world," align with social media. And she documents how trolls, in addition to parroting media tropes, also offer a grotesque pantomime of dominant cultural tropes, including gendered notions of dominance and success and an ideology of entitlement. We don't just have a trolling problem, Phillips argues; we have a culture problem. _This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things _isn't only about trolls; it's about a culture in which trolls thrive.

  • Models of Control and Cooperation

    The revolution in information technology transforms not only information and its uses but, more important, knowledge and the ways we generate and manage it. Knowledge is now seen as input, output, and capital, even if imperfectly accounted for or understood. Many businesses and public agencies are convinced that knowledge can be managed in sophisticated, rational ways and that networking and information technology are essential tools for doing so. In this collection, experts from North America and Europe look at the transformation of knowledge in the global economy in light of the rapid changes in information technology, the resulting explosion of data, the recognition of intangibles as sources of value and liability, and the increasingly blurred distinction between private and public knowledge.The appeal of the Internet as boundary-spanning knowledge infrastructure, bridging all sectors of the economy, is shadowed by another infrastructure of rights- based contracts, practices, and institutions. The contributors address the ways in which the processes for creating and organizing knowledge interact with information technology, business strategy, and changing social and economic conditions. They discuss the balkanization that results from the complexity of the knowledge economy, the variety of knowledge resources, the great diversity of institutional and market contexts, and competing models of control and cooperation--and of proprietary and non-proprietary knowledge.Contributors:Berglind ï¿¿ï¿¿sgeirsdï¿¿ï¿¿ttir, Carliss Y.
