Mobile Collaboration - Supply Chain Planning at Your Fingertips

April 25, 2017
I “enjoyed” a rather turbulent ride on a recent flight into Denver International Airport the other day. From my days as a flight test engineer, I know that modern jets have a forward-looking weather radar to help minimize the type of exciting rides I experienced that afternoon. However, it isn’t always possible to avoid all those pockets of turbulence; which is why it is always a good idea to head the flight attendant’s warning to always have your seatbelt fastened.

The engineer in me looks at this as a challenge to see how long I can keep equipment running!

Simplify Supply Chain Forecasting

March 30, 2017
