BAROMETRE 2010 CPV ASSOCIES / CLUB DEMETER ENVIRONNEMENT ET LOGISTIQUE

« L'engagement des firmes dans le développement durable et dans les activités de la Supply Chain »


2ème baromètre CPV Associés /Club Déméter Environnement et Logistique réalisé avec la participation des étudiants en Master 2 du CRET LOG (centre de recherche Aix Marseille II) et auprès des 35 entreprises membres du Club Déméter, dont 40% de prestataires logistiques – 35% industriels – 25% distributeurs.

Ce baromètre, représentatif d'un ensemble d'acteurs de la chaîne logistique globale, illustre la vision d'une vingtaine d'entreprises « militantes » déjà fortement engagées dans une démarche de progrès.

Leur responsabilité sociétale (45%) les motive à s'engager dans une politique de développement durable ; elles jugent (100%), indispensable l'implication de la Direction Générale dans la conduite de ces projets. Dans 1/3 des cas, une Direction du développement durable est porteuse de la démarche au sein de l'entreprise.
Les entreprises ont impliqué à 80% leurs collaborateurs dans cette démarche, qu'elles développent également avec leurs fournisseurs, clients, transporteurs et filiales.

En priorité les actions reposent sur la mise en place d'indicateurs (24%), la modélisation de la chaîne logistique (17%) et la mutualisation (12%).
Les indicateurs les plus mis en place sont : le taux de remplissage (80%) – le nombre de palettes par véhicule (70%) – les émissions de CO2 (65%).
Les émissions de CO2 arrivant en tête (35%) des actions envisagées en priorité.
Elles sont 30% à avoir mis en place des indicateurs mensuels.

74% d'entre elles ont intégré une clause développement durable dans leurs contrats de prestations logistiques et 88% sont prêtes à sanctionner les prestataires qui ne la respecteraient pas.

La participation des salariés dans les projets « développement durable » est le premier critère d'implication (40%) ; la formation et les objectifs individuels ressortent comme étant essentiels (21%) dans les projets DD.

Les entreprises cherchent avant tout à réaliser des économies sur les postes : électricité, papier, carburant, eau et kilomètres parcourus.
Elles réalisent avant tout des investissements, en formation (80%), études et matériel (70%), qu'elles jugent d'ailleurs acceptables pour 55%, d'entre elles.
A 56 %, elles jugent « faibles » les surcoûts engagés en faveur des actions liées au développement durable.
Plus de la moitié d'entre elles revalorisent entre 50% et 100% de leurs déchets.
68% des entreprises interrogées utilisent plusieurs modes de transport. Le ferroviaire est utilisé à 61%, contre 39% le fluvial.
44% d'entre elles considèrent que leur implication dans le Club Déméter Environnement et Logistique les ont encouragées à utiliser des modes de transport moins polluants. Néanmoins, nous notons que les actions de transfert modal sont très complexes à mettre en œuvre.
63% de ces entreprises ont engagés une démarche HQE sur un de leurs entrepôts. Et même si une entreprise sur 3 effectue cette démarche pour être en accord avec la future réglementation, elles sont tout de même 45% à revendique la volonté de l'entreprise, comme étant le moteur principal ce cette initiative. Elles pensent d'ailleurs à l'unanimité que la norme HQE deviendra un standard de référence dans leur activité.

72% des entreprises se disent prêtes à réaliser des partenariats logistiques avec leurs concurrents directs.
Globalement (88%) considèrent que la réglementation est une opportunité pour repenser ou faire évoluer leur modèle logistique.

Enfin, par rapport au baromètre 2009, où l'implication de la Direction Générale était le facteur essentiel, nous constatons cette année la prise de conscience profonde de la mission DD avec la culture et la politique de l'entreprise (44% des réponses).
Néanmoins le financement et le coût des projets liés au développement durable demeurent une préoccupation.

________________________________________
Ainsi ces nouveaux résultats confirment l'intégration de plus en plus forte et structurante du développement durable dans les stratégies Supply Chain des firmes qui composent le Club Déméter. On note également une forte prise de conscience accordée aux aspects managériaux et sociaux des projets développement durable et une complète absence de sensibilité des projets encours à la suspension de certaines mesures issues du Grenelle de l'environnement. Ce panel illustre les engagements à long terme d'un ensemble d'entreprises militantes convaincues que par l'action et la concertation entre les acteurs de la chaine logistique, le développement durable est davantage une opportunité de progrès pour tous, qu'un ensemble de contraintes.

          [urls/news] The Global Grid: China's HPC Opportunity        
Thursday, November 11, 2004
Dateline: China
 
For this posting, I'm using an annotated urls format.  Let's begin.
 
The Global Grid
 
Grid computing.  HPC (high-performance computing).  Lots of trade press coverage.  Lots of academic papers.  Generally, this is a GREAT convergence.  Didn't hold with AI (artificial intelligence), but the coverage of grid computing is much more pervasive.  Also, it's an area where I believe that systems integrators (SIs) in China can play with the globals.  It's new enough that there are no clear leaders.  Okay, maybe IBM is a clear leader, but it's certainly not an established market.
 
It's also a market where Chinese SIs can leverage work done for domestic applications for Western clients.  This is NOT true in areas such as banking applications; the apps used in China are very different from the apps used in the States.  Fundamentally different systems.  But a lot of grid work is more about infrastructure and custom development.  There's also a lot of open source in the grid sphere.
 
I've selected some of the best papers and sites for review.  This is certainly not meant to be comprehensive, but simply follow the links for more info.
 
One last note:  Clicking on any of the following links will likely lead you to an abstract and possibly to some personal commentary not included in this posting.  You may also find related links found by other Furl users.
 
The "Bible" of the grid world.  The home page will lead to many other relevant papers and reports.  See also The Anatomy of the Grid (PDF).
 
Hottest journal issue in town!!  Papers may be downloaded for free.  See also Grid computing: Conceptual flyover for developers.
 
One of the better conferences; covers applications and provides links to several excellent papers and presentations.
 
Well, the link has been replaced.  Try to get a hold of this paper.  It WAS available for free.  SOA meets the grid.  The lead author, Liang-Jie Zhang, is a researcher at IBM T.J.Watson Research Center and chair of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Steering Committee (technical community) for Services Computing. Contact him at zhanglj@us.ibm.com .  Ask for his related papers, too.
 
Several excellent papers; recent conference.  Middleware:  Yes, middleware is the key to SI opportunities.
 
Conference held earlier this month!!  See who is doing what in China.
 
Want a competitive edge in the grid space?  This is it!!
 
NOTE:  A search for "grid computing" in my Furl archive yields 164 hits (and most are publicly searchable).  See http://www.furl.net/members/goldentriangle .
 
Other News
 
Outsourcing & Offshoring:
 
I don't agree with this, but it's worth reading, especially considering the source.  I agree that China shouldn't try to be a clone of India, but the arguments in support of the domestic market don't consider margins.
 
I'll be writing a column for the AlwaysOn Network about the disconnect between China's foreign policy initiatives and the realities of the IT sector.  Suffice it to say that SIs in China should NOT chase after the EU.  Again, do NOT confuse foreign policy with corporate policy!!
 
More of the same.  Read my comments about Romania by clicking the link ...
 
Google is coming to China, too.  Think MS Research in Beijing.
 
Another great move by IBM; they're clearly leading the pack.
 
This article is a bit confusing.  I suspect that TCS is simply copying the IGS China strategy.  But it's worth noting that they're moving beyond servicing their American clients with a presence in China.
 
Yes, yes and yes.  Expect a lot more of this.  I wouldn't be surprised to see China's SIs forced to move a bit lower on the U.S. SI food chain for partnerships.  Move up the chain by thinking verticals!!
 
BPO:
 
No need to click; it's all about security.
 
No, not really a new model; more about a new certification!!  Just what the world needs ...
 
Enterprise Software:
 
The title says it all.
 
Maybe the "P" in "LAMP" should stand for "Plone"?
 
A strategy for USERS, i.e., SIs in China.
 
Marketing & Management:
 
Product Management 101, courtesy of the Harvard Business School.
 
Spread this throughout your organization ... and then ramp up with some paid tools.
 
SCM (supply chain management) meets marketing, but with a general management and strategy slant.
 
G2 planning strategies.  A wee bit mathematical, but still fairly easy to follow.
 
Expect the next original posting in two or three weeks; my next column for the AlwaysOn Network will be sent to this list.  Off to HK/SZ/ZH/GZ next week.
 
Cheers,

          [urls] Measuring the ROI of Software Process Improvement        
Saturday, September 18, 2004
Dateline: China
 
The following is a sampling of my top ten "urls" for the past couple/few weeks.  By signing up with Furl (it's free), anyone can subscribe to an e-mail feed of ALL my urls (about 100-250 per week) -- AND limit by subject (e.g., ITO) and/or rating (e.g., articles rated "Very Good" or "Excellent").  It's also possible to receive new urls as an RSS feed.
 
All of the top ten are PDFsClick on the link to read the abstract for each paper.
 
Note: Off to California for a couple of weeks.  Probably no new, original postings until after the October national holiday in China.  (I get a three week break from writing for this blog, but I'll still be writing columns for the AlwaysOn Network.)
 
Top Honors:
 
Measuring the ROI of Software Process Improvement (relatively speaking, very popular among Furl viewers; highly accessible article with a lot of substance and pointers)
 
Other best new selections (in order of popularity as determined by Furl views, then alphabetically):
 
A Framework for Off-The-Shelf Software Component Development and Maintenance Processes (this was THE most popular paper, although I liked the ROI article better; superb info, good guidelines, lots of food for thought)
Agent-Based e-Supply Chain Decision Support (not as geeky as it sounds; lead author is with Carnegie Mellon's e-Supply Chain Management Laboratory & Institute for e-Commerce)
B2B E-Commerce Stages of Growth: the Strategic Imperatives (a look at some case studies; provides some insights into B2B adoption and diffusion)
Creating an Open Agent Environment for Context-Aware M-Commerce (from the Mobile Commerce Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon <no, this isn't necessarily CMU week>; I have a lot of doubts about this stuff, but it's worth firing a few neurons and giving it a spin)
Development and Evaluation of Software Process Improvement Methods (Dissertation, 190 pp.) (superb overviews sprinkled with case studies; it was tough to choose between this dissertation and the ROI paper for top honors)
Deriving a Diffusion Framework for Web-Based Shopping Systems (a bit of a technical flavor, but not too technical; puts e-shopping in a broader perspective, e.g., relative to EDI)
* Exploring Defect Causes in Products Developed by Virtual Teams (to all SIs developing a GDM - global delivery model - READ THIS!!; perhaps the most important paper among my top ten)
* Intelligent Support for Software Release Planning (a corporate technical paper describing a very useful software development management tool; see also the Release Planner (tm) home page)
 
And my PERSONAL favorite:
 
> The Banality of Google (good for some laughs)
 
and many, many more ...

          [news] IT Spending Trends        
Tuesday, July 6, 2004
Dateline: China
 
A quick recap on IT spending trends from three recently published Smith Barney surveys.  The three reports are the May and June editions of their CIO Vendor Preference Survey and the 6 June issue of softwareWEEK.  Tom Berquist, my favorite i-banking analyst, was the lead for all three reports.  I have a backlog of blogs to write, so I'll use as many quotes as possible and add context where necessary.  (I'm mostly extracting from my smartphone bookmarks for these reports.  Warning:  I may have coded the May and June issues incorrectly, but the quotes are correct.)  NOTE:  Highlighted items (e.g., items in bold, like this sentence) are MY emphasis.  Items in red are my commentary.
 
Starting with the Survey editions, "(t)he strongest areas of spending appear to be software (apps, security, storage, and database) and network equipment/apps (Gigabit Ethernet, WLAN, VPNs)" and regarding software, "larger and more well known vendors continue to dominate the list in each category with vendors such as Microsoft, SAP, IBM, Veritas, Symantec and Computer Associates getting significantly more mentions in each of their groups than the remaining vendors did."  However, the report admits that their sample group might be biased.  Yes, vendors matter -- and so do vendor partnering strategies.  However, I'm a bit skeptical about CA and I don't particular care very much for Veritas or Symantec.  Not my part of the universe.
 
"Applications again stand out as a clear area of strength."  "Within applications, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Business Intelligence (BI) all showed extremely well ..."  Well, this is the first sign that a recovery may be in the making for SCM.  However, I'd emphasize BI and ERP, followed by CRM; don't count on a lot happening in the SCM space just yet.  Some other key surveys do NOT validate that SCM is in recovery.  "In terms of specific vendors, Microsoft, Symantec, Veritas, SAP, and Adobe were the top beneficiaries of CIOs intentions to increase spending."  The report continues that only SAP showed statistically significant results, both in ERP and SCM.  "Results were more mixed for best-of-breed vendors in this area, suggesting that horizontal applications vendors are having a tough time competing with the large ERP vendors even as vertically-focused vendors continue to have some measure of success on this front."  For the more adventurous SIs in China, SAP presents a lot of opportunities.  Tread carefully, though.  And "Adobe's enterprise strategy appears to be gaining momentum.  Adobe was a clear standout in content management ..."  "Survey results were also positive (though somewhat less so) for other leading content management players, notably Microsoft and IBM."  Another "win" for Microsoft.  Funny that none of the traditionally leading content management players were mentioned.  A take on Linux:  "Linux continues to garner mind share, but large enterprises remain the main adopter.  Interestingly, nearly 83% of our respondents stated that they were not currently moving any applications to Linux.  Of the 17% that said they were moving applications to Linux, only one company under $1.0 billion in revenue was making the transition to Linux confirming our views that Linux is primarily being used by large companies to shift Unix applications to Linux on Intel."
 
"Among CIOs who indicated a higher level of consulting spend, IBM was the clear winner, followed by Accenture as a distant second.  Unisys was also mentioned as a vendor being considered, but it was a distant third.  However, we note that Unisys being mentioned ahead of a pure-play consultant like BearingPoint (a low number of mentions, which included mentions of decreased spending) or EDS is positive, given that Unisys chooses to focus in 2 specific verticals, including one-public sector-that was not in the survey."  "Over two-thirds of CIOs indicated that they do not use IT outsourcers.  Most of the rest said they were unlikely to change the level of outsourcing spend.  IBM, ACS and CSC were the only vendors explicitly mentioned as likely to get more outsourcing business."  The "two-thirds" figure will likely change in favor of outsourcing.  This trend is fairly clear.  See a BCG report at http://tinyurl.com/2muy8 , although the report takes a relatively broad perspective.
 
From softwareWEEK, "(t)he CIOs were also very focused on rapid 'time to market' with purchases.  None were interested in starting projects that would take greater than 2 quarters to complete."  "This requirement was not a 'payback' requirement, but rather an implementation time frame requirement.  The CIOs did recognize that payback times could be longer, though the payback times on IT utility spending were much shorter than on applications or emerging area spending."
 
"In terms of spending, the CIOs all used a similar methodology for making decisions that essentially divides their IT spending into one of three categories: 1) sustained spending on their 'IT utility' (i.e., infrastructure such as network equipment, servers, storage, databases, etc.); 2) new project spending on applications (business intelligence, portals, CRM, etc.); and 3) investment spending on select emerging areas (grid/utility computing, identity management, collaboration, etc.)  It was pretty obvious that the CIOs recognized that business unit managers were more interested in spending on new applications/emerging areas than on the IT utility ..."  "(S)ome of the CIOs were experimenting with grid/utility computing initiatives to try to increase their utilization of storage/servers and reduce the amount of new equipment to be purchased.  In one example, a CIO showed their storage/server utilization around the world and many regions were in the 50% or worse bucket for average utilization.  Their goal was to use grid computing architectures and storage area networks (along with faster communication links) to better share the pool of resources."  Yes, this is it!!  Take this to heart!!  If you think grid and utility computing are Star Trek stuff, think again.
 
"In terms of new projects, the CIOs mentioned they were spending on business intelligence, portal/self-service applications, CRM, and collaboration.  Collaboration was a heated discussion, with all CIOs commenting that this was a big problem for them and there was no clear solution on the market.  While it wasn't completely clear to the audience what the CIOs were looking for in a collaboration solution, the elements that were described included: more intelligent email, corporate instant messaging, web conferencing, integrated voice over IP with instant messaging (so that a conversation could quickly shift from typing to talking), and collaborative document editing (spreadsheets, presentations, publications, etc.).  Within the business intelligence arena, business activity monitoring was discussed as was building of enterprise data warehouses/data marts.  The portal/self-service applications being built or deployed were primarily for customer and employee self-service (remote access to email, applications, and files was a big deal for all of the companies).  On the CRM front, the discussion from one CIO was around their need to increase revenues and manage channel conflict better."  [I'll be posting to this blog a bit more about collaboration opportunities over the next week.]
 
"While vendors were not discussed in any detail during the panel, the CIOs did say that they remain open to working with smaller vendors (public and private) as long as they have plenty of relevant references (in their industry, particularly with close competitors) and they offer a compelling value proposition versus larger vendors.  One CIO stated that they get called by 20 startups a week to sell products to them, but most of them cannot articulate the value proposition of their product.  Nonetheless, the CIO does take 5 meetings a month from startups because some of them are working on things that are interesting to the business."
 
Whew ...  Lots of good materials.  To reiterate, all highlighted items are my emphasis.  Bottom line:  The market is heating up.  Get your ISV relationships in place.  Pick your verticals (see the "Tidbit on Microsoft" which follows).  Pick your apps -- and the apps I like the best are content management and BI, although ERP is looking good, too.  Collaboration can be a major source of revenue if the SI can provide a truly effective solution.
 
Tidbits on Microsoft
 
A quick update on some happenings in the Redmond universe.  (See http://tinyurl.com/36xgu ; the article is titled, "Microsoft focuses on its enterprise-applications business".)  First, app areas that are of particular interest to MS include those for manufacturing and life sciences.  So, how about a MS build-to-their-stack strategy focused on either of these two verticals?  Second, MS is moving beyond purely horizontal offerings to very specific functionality.  Their Encore acquisition is an example of MS moving in this direction.  Finally, new releases of all four of Microsoft's ERP product lines are due for this year.  Not surprisingly, MBS marketing is up 20% from FY04.  Hmmm ... ERP spending intentions are strong and MS is a key player in this space -- with several updated offerings scheduled for release this year.  Another opportunity?
 
Tidbits on Infosys
 
Infosys formally enters the IT strategy consulting biz.  (See http://tinyurl.com/2xxlo .)  Yes, it was inevitable.  In April Infosys Consulting, Inc. was formed and, "(i)t's no secret that the winning model will be high-end business consulting combined with high-quality, low-cost technology delivery done offshore," according to Stephen Pratt, the head of Infosys' consulting unit.  The Infosys Consulting unit now has 150 employees in the States and plans to expand to 500 within three years.  Note to SIs in China:  You need more -- a lot more -- IT strategy types  And you need people in the States (at least on an "as needed" basis) in order to capture -- and serve -- new accounts.

Companies to Watch is an awards program that celebrates Indiana’s privately held second-stage companies, typically those businesses that are past the startup phase, are considered to be established, and face issues of growth, not survival.

Companies honored range in industries and have headquarters based in 13 counties throughout the state. Among the 25 honored companies in 2012 is Catheter Research, Inc.

About Indiana Companies to Watch
Companies to Watch firms must employ between six and 150 full-time equivalent employees, have between $750,000 and $100 million in annual revenue or working capital in place, and demonstrate the intent and capacity to grow based on employee or sales growth, exceptional entrepreneurial leadership, sustainable competitive advantage or other notable strengths.

This year the program attracted more than 160 nominees and applicants. From that pool, 63 finalists were selected, and 25 companies emerged to become the 2012 class of Indiana Companies to Watch.

This awards program is unique because of its focus on second-stage companies. The impact of these companies on Indiana’s economy is tangible. During 2007-2009 Indiana’s resident companies averaged more than 32,000 second-stage establishments according to YourEconomy.org, an online resource of the Edward Lowe Foundation. Those second-stage companies employed an average of more than 773,000 workers during the period of 2007-2009.

Looking at the contributions of these companies from a different perspective, from 2007-2009 only 9.2 percent of Indiana’s resident establishments were in the second-stage category, however, they generated 37.2 percent of jobs in the state.

This program would not be possible without the generous support of Barnes & Thornburg LLP as well as Premier Capital Corporation, Katz, Sapper & Miller, KeyBank, Miles Printing and Purdue University. The program is also supported by Ivy Tech Corporate College and media sponsors BizVoice magazine, Inside Indiana Business and Northwest Indiana Business Quarterly.

          From Made in America to the World        
Ludwig Willisch (far right), President, CEO and Chairman of the Board for BMW (U.S.) Holding Corp., discusses BMW’s manufacturing operations in the United States at the SelectUSA Investment Summit, June 20, 2017.

In connection with Made in America Week (July 17-21 2017), SelectUSA is proud to highlight the unique advantages of “Made in America” and the important role that foreign direct investment (FDI) plays in U.S. manufacturing.

Manufacturing in the United States is a significant driver of U.S. economic growth, featuring a higher gross output than any other private sector industry. The United States attracts innovative and industrious manufacturers from a wide variety of industries around the world. And U.S. affiliates of foreign-owned firms are playing a significant role in this production renaissance.

According to the latest available data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, the total value (stock) of foreign direct investment (FDI) in manufacturing reached $1.2 trillion in 2015 – higher than any other sector – comprising nearly 40% of total FDI stock in the nation. Moreover, FDI in U.S. manufacturing is growing at an average annual rate of nearly nine percent, one of the fastest growth rates in the country.

There are many reasons why global manufacturers choose the United States. Made in America represents high-quality, reliability and service to increasingly demanding global consumers. Proximity to customers in the world’s largest market, access to raw materials, and independent, low-cost energy sources help U.S. manufacturers minimize supply chain risks and reduce costs. A thriving innovation ecosystem encourages game-changing product and process innovation. U.S. workers are among the most productive in the world – a key reason why more than 2.4 million U.S. jobs in manufacturing are supported by FDI. And for many, manufacturing in America is not only key to making it in America – but also to their global success.

Take German automaker BMW. The company’s Spartanburg, SC, plant encapsulates its commitment to manufacturing, selling and exporting U.S.-made cars. What began as a facility with a few hundred workers has blossomed into BMW’s largest manufacturing plant in its global network, employing nearly 10,000 U.S. workers.

Chinese chemical company Wanhua Chemical is building a $1.1 billion chemical manufacturing plant in St. James Parish, LA. The massive complex will lead to the creation of more than 1,100 jobs. When the plant is fully operational, it will produce a chemical found in numerous products from a variety of industries, including insulation foam, footwear and furniture.

LINAK U.S. Inc., a Danish linear actuator manufacturing company, recently announced it was doubling the size of its Louisville, KY, plant, which was established almost 20 years ago. The $33 million expansion will result in higher production efficiency, lower costs, and most importantly, more than 400 new jobs. When fully staffed, the facility will support over 700 U.S. jobs.

Stories like these show that when global companies choose the United States, it’s a win-win. When they select the USA, they’re tapping into a vast consumer market. Additionally, they are able to utilize one of the most competitive export platforms in the world. Put simply, “Made in America” is good for business, good for consumers and good for American workers.

          NOAA Data Helps Retail and Manufacturing Business Minimize Impacts from Weather and Climate        
Photo of down jackets at retail store.

The following is a cross-post from NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information

From making sure warm winter coats are in stock at just the right time to accurately evaluating the underlying causes of fluctuations in the U.S. economy, NCEI’s environmental data provide critical information for retailers, manufacturers, and the companies that invest in them. As industries that are highly sensitive to changing weather conditions, retail and manufacturing businesses rely on our climate data to assess how weather has influenced their past sales. By understanding the past, these business can also better plan for the future.

Weather can affect every step of the retail supply chain, from the supplier, to the manufacturer, to the distributor, to the retailer, to consumer purchases. As the seasons change, manufacturers may need to produce different machine parts for equipment like lawn mowers and snow blowers. Similarly, retailers may need to shift the stock of seasonal items like hot cocoa and sandals as temperatures and weather conditions fluctuate.

In the winter, in particular, the weather can dramatically influence economic activity related to the manufacturing and retail industries. A severe snowstorm may keep consumers from shopping at retail stores and dining at restaurants. And, winter weather can prevent goods from getting to market too. For example, when a major snowstorm caused a single-day shutdown in New York, it resulted in $152 million in lost sales. However, major snowstorms can be profitable for online retailers and the automotive repair industry.

The performance of the manufacturing and retail industries is a top indicator of economic well-being. Since they account for $3.2 trillion or 17 percent of the U.S. GDP and an estimated 22 million jobs collectively, the performance of the manufacturing and retail industries is a top indicator of economic well-being. With the right data, manufacturers, retailers, and the companies that invest in them can understand and measure how weather is influencing their bottom lines and the country’s economy.

NCEI’s data are a crucial source of credible and authoritative information for a wide variety of businesses in the retail and manufacturing industries according to an April 2017 report. The report, which compiles feedback from companies in these industries, demonstrates how our climate data products are used to understand the effect of certain weather conditions on business performance. Pairing this information with climate outlooks can then inform how much product to manufacture or how to stock items in various regions of the country.

“We use the NCEI climate data reports when we're reviewing month-over-month and then year-over-year results from our sales territories,” said one company’s sales manager. “If we lost the NCEI climate data, I'd have to go back to the old sales guy excuse of ‘I didn't make my number because it rained.’ I'm not really willing to go there.”

Some of our data products that provide real-world value to the retail and manufacturing industries include:

All of these products help monitor and assess the state of Earth’s climate in near–real time and provide perspectives on how the climate of today compares to the past.

          Foreign Direct Investment: Driving Global Competitiveness and Innovation        
Graphic on Direct Employment by Majority Foreign-Owned Firms in the United States.

The following is a cross-post from the U.S. Economic and Development Administration 

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) plays an important role in the U.S. economy. It leads to the creation of jobs, an increase in wealth and living standards, and overall growth and innovation that drive the U.S. economic competitiveness. Later this month, the Commerce Department will host the 2017 SelectUSA Investment Summit providing a platform to communicate economic priorities and affirm the United States as the number one destination in the world for foreign direct investment.

The United States remains an attractive destination for FDI for a variety of reasons, including a large consumer base, a productive workforce, a highly innovative environment, and legal protections. As a result, foreign firms make investments in the United States on a regular basis by establishing new operations, purchasing existing operations of another company, or providing additional capital to their existing U.S. operations.

The U.S. welcomes foreign investment, and the numbers show that investors have confidence in the opportunities here. With a population of 320 million and a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) that's over $18 trillion, our nation is home to more FDI stock than any other country.

The numbers paint the big picture:

  • 12.1 million jobs are attributable to FDI.
  • 6.4 million reflects the number of U.S. workers who are directly employed by majority foreign-owned firms.
  • 2.4 million includes jobs attributable to the economic activity of majority foreign-owned firms, including jobs in those firms' supply chains, jobs attributable to higher incomes, and other economic effects.
  • In the manufacturing sector alone, productivity growth from technology spillovers associated with FDI contributed 3.5 million jobs.

At the Commerce Department's Economic Development Administratoin (EDA), FDI is one of our investment priorities. These priorities are designed to provide an overarching framework to guide the agency's investment portfolio and ensure its investments contribute the strongest positive impact on sustainable regional economic growth and diversification.

Since FY2011, EDA invested more than $109 million in 91 projects to help advance local strategies to attract FDI. Of the total, 61 projects totaling close to $98 million are expected to create and/or retain 30,073 jobs and attract over $8 billion in private investment. The other 30 projects totaling close to $12 million support FDI-related planning, research, technical assistance, access to capital, and/or other activities that are essential for successful economic development and job creation in the future.

Examples that show how EDA is investing to support FDI include:

  • Mississippi: Mississippi State University's Canton-based office received the Mississippi Economic Development Council's Community Economic Development Award for its work to bring advanced manufacturing jobs back to America. The program acquired its initial funding through EDA. According to the University, the initiative resulted in a nearly $11 million economic impact, with more than 33 direct investment opportunities identified and 333 jobs created or saved. Additionally, the program saw 262 industry certifications and 221 paid internships in high-demand advanced manufacturing skills.
  • Georgia: Over the last three decades, the global automotive sector has established a noticeable presence in the Southeast United States. From Mercedes in Alabama, to BMW in South Carolina, many automotive manufacturers are seeking to take advantage of the Southeast's comparatively inexpensive cost of doing business, warm climate, and excellent transportation networks. In 2015, EDA invested $700,000 in Public Works Program funds in the city of Lavonia, Georgia, to make sewer systems improvements that helped bring a foreign-based automotive parts manufacturer to the region. As a result, it is estimated that the region will gain 400 new manufacturing jobs and attract $54 million in foreign direct investment.

          Foundation Course Sequences - a new paradigm for MOOCville?        
In my last post I noted that the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton school is offering its first year courses, bundled into a package, on the Coursera platform.  This significant event suggests a new development in the MOOC space.

Phil Hill over at e-Literate notes today that MIT has joined Wharton in offering not just individual courses, but organized sequences of foundation courses in the MOOC format. 

The upshot is that learners can now gain access to organized courses of study, with certificates of completion, for free. Keep an eye on this development!   




MIT will offer the first of seven courses in its Foundations of Computer Science XSeries this fall on the edX platform.. Then one or more additional courses will be offered each semester. The entire sequence will be available by fall 2015. The three course sequence in Supply Chain Management will begin in the fall of 2014. 


For those concerned about security, MIT plans to implement an identity verification process starting in Spring 2014 that will prompt students to present government-issued identification before standing for exams.  

The concern with security - especially for course sequences - suggests that MOOC leaders anticipate the use of MOOC certificates in consequential decisions such as those by colleges accepting MOOCs for advanced standing, grad school admission committees, and employers.  
          Does bad news harm the prospects for climate change mitigation strategies? ... by gimleteye        
A month ago, we wrote about the gloomy NY Magazine report on the doomsday climate change scenario. Science News, "the magazine of the Society for Science & the Public", responded: "Does doom and gloom convince anyone about climate change?"

That the article is disappointing isn't a surprise. How could it be, when the over-arching issue of the public response to climate change is such a disappointment.

Earlier studies acknowledge that too much doom and gloom turns people off the subject, or, irrigates a sense of hopelessness; ie. nothing can be done, it's the weather.

The primary driver of the public response to climate change continues to be the profit principle. Those with the most to gain, like the fossil fuel supply chain and large centralized, leviathan electricity producers, continue to game out scenarios that allow them to continue to profit -- in some cases, guaranteed by public policies -- as long as possible. On the other hand, government policies, when in the hands of those who believe climate change mitigation is an essential goa, can incentivize economic behavior and energy production that is less damaging to the atmosphere compared to carbon and methane emissions.

Bluntly, the science of climate change is resolved: it is happening, and it is happening at a rate much faster than science anticipated only a decade ago. It is also well established that contrarians in the science community have ties to polluters and anti-science initiatives by corporate sponsors in the past, ie. tobacco and Big Sugar.

Eye On Miami takes the side that sounding the alarm bells continues to be the most clarifying position. We speak from experience in Florida, having spent nearly 30 years calling out similar messages on the fate of the Everglades and Florida Bay.

We know what needs to be done. We just haven't been able to summon the political will, the voters and leadership to protect our shared future. The result is muddy at best, but our conscience is clear.

          An Adult Conversation About Medicare For All ... by gimleteye        
NOTE: What the hell is going on with Republicans in Congress? The GOP is spending itself on health care like waves on a beach; a great surge then slide back out to sea.

GOP leadership believes that its base is motivated by only one idea: overthrow Obamacare. What was a popular net to corral voters turns out to be much less popular, and not at all effective, as a matter of protecting people, jobs, family and income.

It would be far better for sober adults in the GOP majority in Congress to look at the outcomes of health care in the U.S. As Dr. Carol Paris and many others report: the United States lags health care metrics compared to nearly every other industrialized nation. "Compared to ten other wealthy countries, the U.S. ranks dead last for life expectancy, and access to care. We even have the lowest number of hospital beds per capita, a way that health experts measure the capacity of a nation’s health system. It’s as if our system was designed to deny care."

The only metric where U.S. health care exceeds beyond imagination: empowering and enriching intermediaries in the health care supply chain.

I understand that this point grossly simplifies a massively complex process, but if other Western nations can effectively institute a single-payer system, why can't we?

It's Time for the Adults in This Nation To Talk Seriously About Medicare for All
Today, we breathe a quick sigh a relief. But we cannot celebrate a return to the failed status quo.
by Dr. Carol Paris

Ruby Partin, 63, and her adoptive son Timothy Huff, 5, wait for a free clinic to open in the early morning of July 22, 2017 in Wise, Virginia. Hundreds of Appalachia residents waited through the night for the annual Remote Area Medical (RAM), clinic for dental, vision and medical services held at the Wise County Fairgrounds in western Virginia. The county is one of the poorest in the state, with high number of unemployed and underinsured residents. (Photo: John Moore/Getty Images)

Hundreds of people slept overnight in cars, or camped for days in a field. They told stories of yanking out their own teeth with pliers, of reusing insulin syringes until they broke in their arm, of chronic pain so debilitating they could hardly care for their own children. At daybreak, they lined up for several more hours outside a white tent, waiting for their chance to visit a doctor. For many, this was the first health care provider they’ve seen in years.

Is this a place torn by war, famine or natural disaster? No, this charity medical clinic was last weekend in southwest Virginia, in the wealthiest country in the world, where we spend nearly three times as much money on health care as other similar countries.

"It’s as if our system was designed to deny care."

And what do we get for our money? The very definition of health care rationing: 28 million Americans without insurance, and millions more insured, but avoiding treatment because of sky-high deductibles and co-pays. Compared to ten other wealthy countries, the U.S. ranks dead last for life expectancy, and access to care. We even have the lowest number of hospital beds per capita, a way that health experts measure the capacity of a nation’s health system. It’s as if our system was designed to deny care.

America does hit the top of the list in some areas. Compared to other nations, American doctors and patients waste the most hours on billing and insurance claims. We have the highest rate of infant mortality, and the highest percentage of avoidable deaths—patients who die from complications or conditions that could have been avoided with timely care.

Clearly, this system is broken. Like a cracked pipe, money gushes into our health care system but steadily leaks out. Money is siphoned into the advertising budgets of insurance companies and the army of corporate bureaucrats working to deny claims. Even more dollars are soaked up by the pockets of insurance CEOs who have collectively earned $9.8 billion since the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010. Nearly a third of our health care dollars go to something other than health care.

President Trump recognized voters’ frustration and campaigned on a promise of more coverage, better benefits, and lower costs. We couldn’t agree more with these goals. However, instead of trying to fix our broken system, GOP leaders are acting more like toddlers, mid-tantrum, smashing our health system into smaller and smaller pieces, threatening to push even more Americans—the most vulnerable among us—through the cracks. Last night, a few Senate Republicans stood up and acted like adults, putting an end to this dangerous game.

Today, we breathe a quick sigh of relief. But we cannot celebrate a return to the status quo, a system that rations health care based on income and allows 18,000 Americans to die each year unnecessarily.

Where do we go from here?

Republicans had eight years to come up with a plan that achieves more coverage, better benefits and lower costs. Have our elected leaders simply run out of ideas?

"The good news is that we already have a proven model for health financing that is popular among both patients and physicians."
The good news is that we already have a proven model for health financing that is popular among both patients and physicians. It provides medically-necessary care to the oldest and sickest Americans with a fraction of the overhead of private insurance. It’s called Medicare, and I can tell you as a physician that it has worked pretty darn well for more than 50 years.

Not only do we have a model, we have a bill that would expand Medicare to cover everyone and improve it to include prescriptions, dental, vision, and long-term care. It’s called H.R. 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act, a single-payer plan that would provide comprehensive care to everyone living in the U.S. The bill would yield about $500 billion annually in administrative savings while covering the 28 million currently uninsured. Medicare for all is gaining steam with a record 115 co-sponsors, a majority of House Democrats.

Now that Republican senators have finally worn themselves out, Sen. Bernie Sanders plans to file his own single-payer Medicare for all bill. Senators from both parties will be asked to choose a side: Do you support the current system of health care rationing, medical bankruptcies and unnecessary deaths; or a program proven to work both here and in every other developed country?

A majority of Americans now believe that health care is a human right, and that it is our government's responsibility to achieve universal coverage. We’ve tried everything else except Medicare for all. What are we waiting for?

Adweek has a nice piece on how the magazine BusinessWeek appears to be thriving. It has changed its name to Bloomberg Businessweek (is that really better?) and has a newly invigorated editorial and design approach.

So far, the Bloomberg money has bought signs of life. Businessweek has bulked up to an average of 66 well-designed editorial pages that offer a level of global business coverage not found among other weeklies. Ad pages are up 21 percent year-on-year for January through July, the rate base will soon be raised from 900,000 to 980,000 (approaching Forbes’ 1,020,000), and subscriptions are up 12 percent. The magazine now loses, according to Adweek sources, between $20 million to $30 million a year. (Josh Tyrangiel Means Business -- Adweek)

Bloomberg bought the magazine from the McGraw Hill company for $1 in October 2009.

The magazine also has a respectable app for the iPad, though I suspect that its not (yet) a key part of the revived magazine's business strategy. I find their app clever, but a bit too fiddly and confusing and its not on Apple's Newsstand which suggests that Bloomberg have not yet worked out whether they see it as an integral part of a digital magazine strategy or more of a trial balloon. But the resuscitation of the core magazine is a good story for the magazine business. A new owner has been bold enough to take a fresh look at the editorial mission, has seen the need for investment in editorial content and design quality, and the magazine is a lot better than it was 2 or 3 years ago. This week it has a tremendous article on Apple's extraordinary strength in supply chain management, investment and logistics. Now that they have the core magazine working really well, they can consider how to make it a digital success.

It could be that there are a good many magazines out in the market which are suffering from tired ownership (McGraw Hill had no real rationale for owning a consumer-facing business magazine). There are some excellent editorial and content propositions that could be revived by fresh investment and owners committed to developing subscription audiences. This will become a positive story for the magazine industry in the near future as publishers realise that digital magazine audiences can be very large and can be reached very efficiently through the iPad and other web devices.

          The Challenges of Excess Inventory in Manufacturing        

While excess inventory can ultimately impact a manufacturer’s bottom line, they often resort to high-overhead marketing promotions, rebates, or complete inventory write-offs to deal with it. Inventory in manufacturing is a dependent variable based on the inputs of many factors including: demand and demand variability, supply lead time and lead time variability, supply chain design, manufacturing capabilities versus customer purchase characteristics, transportation modes, and desired service levels. With such a confluence of variables, excess inventory is bound to happen from time to time where a supply chain or market correction is not evident on the horizon. The reality is that...

By Christopher Booker and Connie Kargbo

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: A tour through the New Belgium Brewing Company in Fort Collins, Colorado, passes through the bottling facility and brewhouse, before ending at the bar.

New Belgium is one the largest craft breweries in the country, distributing beer to all 50 states.

When you buy its best known brand, Fat Tire Belgian style ale, that “B” on the label doesn’t stand for beer, it’s stands for B Corp, a designation given to businesses dedicated to more than profit.

KATE WALLACE: I think when you get together with people you realize you have a lot of the same values.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Katie Wallace is New Belgium’s assistant director of sustainability.

KATIE WALLACE: If you’re running a business that’s not considering the impact that you have on the environment and society, or the impact that those things have upon your business, then you’re not operating a business that’s really going to be in existence in the future.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: New Belgium is privately owned and profitable, selling nearly a million barrels of beer a year and generating $225 million a year in revenue.

KATIE WALLACE: For a long time we felt that we kind of stumbled into this for values-based reasons but then found that economically it was a really powerful business model and has been a key ingredient of our success over time

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: New Belgium took its dedication up a notch in 2013, when it became a certified B Corp, submitting to a rigorous audit of its community impact by the Pennsylvania based B Lab.

B Lab likens the certification to “Fair Trade” for coffee and the “LEED” certification for buildings with environmental and energy-efficient design.

Beyond charitable giving, companies can score more points for making eco-friendly products, offering robust benefit packages, and being transparent in their corporate governance.

New Belgium earned its certification in large part because of its environmental practices: generating 12 percent of its electricity from solar panels and biogas, a fuel they create by the wastewater produced when they make beer. After one year on the job, employees are given bikes to commute carbon free and given shares in the company, which is now employee owned.

KATIE WALLACE: B Corp has given us a way to measure things that aren’t inherently quantitative, but we know are important to us. Like providing 100 percent of our health care premiums for our co-workers or putting solar on site or biogas. It helps us to bring that into a measurement space where we can compare ourselves against other companies and see are we really being leaders in this area or is there a way we can improve?

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Believing business can function as “a force for good,” B Lab has certified 22,000 companies worldwide since 2007. Subjecting mostly small and medium-sized, privately held companies to a 200 point assessment.

The list includes ice cream makers Ben & Jerry’s, eyewear manufacturer Warby Parker, and outdoor clothing giant Patagonia.

There are 99 B Corps in Colorado. That includes businesses that don’t manufacture anything like Denver law firm moye white. Attorney Dominick Sekich oversaw its B Corps application.

DOMINICK SEKICH: There are a lot of opportunities that, say, manufacturers have that, as a service organization, we don’t have. We can’t really point to a supply chain that we’ve improved, because our supply chain is fairly short and concrete.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Moye White acheived B Corp certification after it improved a number of employee benefits, expanding paid parental and family leave, increasing flex time, and starting an employee community service group that volunteers with organizations like Habitat for Humanity.

Sekich says each time an employee takes advantage of their three-month paid family leave benefit, it can cost the firm between $20,000 and $50,000. But the firm believes it’s worth it.

DOMINICK SEKICH: We’ve had some clients approach us asking us how we’ve committed to the environment, how we’ve committed to our communities, and we’re able to point to our certification as a B Corporation as part of that effort.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: When Moye White was working toward its B Corp certification, it turned to B Lab’s Kim Coupanous for assistance.

KIM COUPANOS: If you look at society in general and all of the good things that capitalism has brought to civilization and humanity over the last hundred plus years, there’s been an equal number of really negative things. Massive income divides biotoxicity, greenhouse gases, you name your kind of social or environmental ill. Capitalism has kind of created that.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Before joining B Lab, Coupanous ran an outdoor clothing company for 16 years.

KIM COUPANOUS: I agree with the profit motive and there’s no bones about that. I also know that the power of business to transform society is huge. And we are going into this new century facing some pretty challenging problems that haven’t been solved by the nonprofit sector or the government sector. And at the same time, there’s this kind of spirit of innovation and optimism, especially among Millennials who say we can do better than this.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Economically, Colorado is doing better than most states. Its 2.3 percent unemployment rate is the lowest in the country. The Denver skyline is filled with cranes constructing new apartment buildings for some of the 60,000 people who move to the state every year. Most settling in the relatively affluent greater Denver and Boulder areas.

Will this be relegated to areas that are already populated by the upper middle class, the educated, the tech sector? I can think of many corners of America that they just want jobs. They’re not even having the ability to think about how does this save water.

KIM COUPANOUS: Certainly it really can’t be relegated to the realm of upper middle class progressive city. Because if we are trying to create shared and or durable prosperity for all it means cities that are depressed. It means, you know, local businesses, nail salons, and moving companies, and the local garage.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: The B Corp movement is not without its skeptics.

KENT GREENFIELD: It is a band aid on a cancerous patient.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Boston College law professor Kent Greenfield applauds the intent of b-corps but fears the B Corps movement may mask the need for far greater changes to the way American companies conduct themselves.

KENT GREENFIELD: Let’s be honest the real bad actors in the corporate world are not those who are voluntarily opting in .

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Greenfield argues that there must be changes in corporate governance to legally support companies working to be better citizens.

KENT GREENFIELD: As long as it’s voluntary, then it’s still gonna leave bad actors aside. So if you’re a Wall Street hedge fund manager, are you going to prefer companies that are B Corps? Are you gonna prefer companies who are saying, “no, we don’t think that being a B Corp is conducive to the shareholder value?” So I think our efforts need to be aimed at a more fundamental adjustment in the way we think about corporate obligation and the way we govern corporations.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Despite the lack of federal or state regulation compelling companies to function as better actors, there is a way for companies who pursue both profit and social good to be legally protected.

With a push from B Lab, Colorado and 32 other states have passed legislation allowing companies to incorporate as a public benefit corporation, which enshrines their social mission into their articles of incorporation.

This spring, food and beverage company DanoneWave became the largest public benefit corporation in the U.S., with 6,000 employees and $6 billion in annual revenue. A subsidiary of French multinational Danone, DanoneWave makes organic products like Horizon milk, Silk almond milk, and Wallaby yogurt.

DEBRA ESCHMEYER: We encourage dietary practices that improve the health of people through food.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Deborah Eschmeyer is the vice president of communications and community affairs.

DEBRA ESCHMEYER: When folks go to the grocery store, they want to know that the products are actually doing right by the employees and by the people and the planet.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Its production process is increasingly using natural ingredients and the company has spent money to reduce its waste and promote animal welfare.

Eschmeyer says DanoneWave believes the upfront costs pay off in the long run.

DEBRA ESCHMEYER: These are things that help the bottom line. Because waste reduction, for example, is great for the bottom line. It’s also great for the planet. We have this greater goal of showing that you can meet the financial shareholders’ interests and do right by the people and the planet.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: DanoneWave is arguably providing a test case for scale.

DEBRA ESCHMEYER: Yes.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: How difficult is it to go through this process with such a large company

DEBRA ESCHMEYER: Yeah, I mean, we’re definitely proving the case. We want to make sure that large companies can do this, and we can do this at scale. And DanoneWave is now one of the top 15 food and beverage companies in the United States. And so when we do this, it’s a challenge to other companies to step up as well.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Six more states are now considering benefit corporation legislation. B Lab says it will certify its 100 Colorado company as a B-Corp next week.

          Column: Why you no longer need a venture capitalist to start a successful business        
People gather and talk at Sightglass Coffee in the South of Market (SoMA) neighborhood in San Francisco, California January 14, 2015. Visitors can get a taste of the booming startup scene in San Francisco, home to thousands of technology businesses, particularly in neighborhoods that are popular with tech workers like the fast-gentrifying SoMA. Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter and Square, recently made an investment in Sightglass Coffee - some believe for the opportunity to observe digitally savvy San Franciscans in their most natural habitat.

If I can use a credit card to start a business that will quickly grow to be dominant, why do I need a venture capitalist? asks Jerry Davis, author of the new book, “The Vanishing American Corporation.” Photo by Robert Galbraith/Reuters

Editor’s Note: This is the fourth in a series of excerpts we are publishing from sociologist Jerry Davis’s new book, “The Vanishing American Corporation: Navigating the Hazards of a New Economy.” For more on the topic, watch last week’s Making Sen$e report below.

— Kristen Doerer, Making Sen$e Editor


Nike demonstrated that the value of sneakers is in the design and the brand, not in the actual physical production or distribution of the shoes. Design and execution can be entirely separated, and consumers do not seem to be bothered by it. The value is in the intellectual property; goods themselves are fungible. This model spread far beyond the garment industry to include computers and electronics, pharmaceuticals, pet food and almost anything else you can buy in the U.S. Nearly everyone is aware that the iPhone, the leading product of our age, is assembled by employees of Foxconn, not by Apple. Aside from occasional concerns about human rights abuses, however, consumers and investors are untroubled by this.

If I can use a credit card to start a business that will quickly grow to be dominant, why do I need a venture capitalist?

Dell demonstrated that even the design is not always especially important if the price is low enough. Why pay extra for an IBM label when a Dell is just as good, customizable and a lot less expensive? Vizio took the Dell idea a step further. The designs are thoroughly generic, and there is no customization. But they are much, much less expensive than the name brands like Sony. Unlike Sony, Vizio has none of the baggage (and costs) of being a social institution. And when flat-screen TVs are replaced by implantable 3D virtual reality brainpods, Vizio will disappear with a minimum of fuss and tears, to be replaced by a new generic implantable brainpod vendor.

There is something of an irony in the fact that the shareholder-driven outsourcings of the 1990s and 2000s created the infrastructure of generic manufacturing, distribution, business services and computing power to render the shareholder-owned corporation obsolete. The restructurings of the 1990s were almost inevitably accompanied by a nod to shareholder value, as at the food company Sara Lee. The spread of the virtual corporation model was a boon for generic plug-and-play vendors who could assemble products and manage supply chains, ship goods to consumers and provide various business services. But once all of these components were available off-the-shelf — not just the physical components, but all the processes needed to do business — it became much easier for anyone to be the next Michael Dell. The economies of scale that made corporations indispensable in the 20th century had now shifted against them.

READ MORE: Column: How lightweight enterprises are outperforming industry heavyweights

Surprisingly enough, this often came at the expense of the investor class who had helped make it happen in the first place. If I can use a credit card to start a business that will quickly grow to be dominant, why do I need a venture capitalist? A 2013 article in The New Yorker described how the cost of starting up a new venture had collapsed due to the ready availability of plug-in resources.

Once, an entrepreneur would go to a venture capitalist for an initial five-million-dollar funding round-money that was necessary for hardware costs, software costs, marketing, distribution, customer service, sales, and so on. Now there are online alternatives. ‘In 2005, the whole thing exploded,’ [an informant] told me. ‘Hardware? No, now you just put it on Amazon or Rackspace. Software? It’s all open-source. Distribution? It’s the App Store, it’s Facebook. Customer service? It’s Twitter–just respond to your best customers on Twitter and Get Satisfaction. Sales and marketing? It’s Google AdWords, AdSense. So the cost to build and launch a product went from five million…to one million…to five hundred thousand…and it’s now to fifty thousand.’

It is not hard to predict that this cost structure will continue to decline, and it is not just for app startups. Capital equipment has also dropped dramatically in cost, due in large part to CNC (computer numerical control) technology, which acts as the brains of machine tools. A Shopbot router, which could cut plans for much of the furniture in the Ikea catalogue, costs far less than a year of tuition at a private college, and a portable version costs not much more than a laptop. Indeed, outfitting a machine shop can cost far less than sending a kid to college these days. But there is no need to actually purchase or rent the equipment because membership in Techshop or other similar makerspaces allows makers to use high-end precision equipment for the cost of a gym membership. With easy access to open-source designs, anyone who can assemble Ikea furniture can make it themselves, using their own materials.

          Suniva and SolarWorld Claim Their Trade Case Will Create More Than 114,800 Jobs        

A game of dueling numbers is playing out over the market impacts of a pending U.S. solar trade case.

An economic analysis released yesterday by law firm Mayer Brown, on behalf of trade case petitioners Suniva and SolarWorld Americas, finds that imposing new tariffs on solar products made outside of America will result in a net increase of at least 114,800 new jobs, and potentially as many as 144,300 new jobs, across all segments of the U.S. solar industry.

“This job growth includes as many as 45,000 U.S. manufacturing jobs in the solar cell and module manufacturing segment and the upstream sectors that cell and module manufacturing supports,” the report states. “It also includes an increase of 98,020 U.S. non-manufacturing jobs, including 65,830 U.S. installer jobs.”

Those results stand in sharp contrast to the numbers put forward in a separate analysis published recently by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), which determined that Suniva’s requested tariff and minimum pricing requirement would result in the loss of 88,000 solar jobs in 2018. The utility-scale market would see jobs shrink by 60 percent, while residential and commercial employment would fall by 44 percent and 46 percent, respectively.

The U.S. solar industry currently employs around 260,000 workers. Manufacturing represents 38,000 or 15 percent of jobs in the sector, according to the Solar Foundation’s 2016 jobs census.

Rational or preposterous?

U.S. solar manufacturing numbers may be slipping. SolarWorld Americas, which recently raised $6 million to fight the trade case in light of its parent company’s insolvency, employed around 1,200 people at its peak. The Oregon-based manufacturer currently has around 300 U.S. workers, following a severe round of job cuts. In late March, Suniva announced “significant” layoffs in Georgia, where it’s headquartered, and in Michigan, where it operates a facility. The company declared bankruptcy in April.

Suniva brought the Section 201 trade case shortly after filing for bankruptcy protection, seeking duties of 40 cents per watt on imported cells and a floor price of 78 cents per watt on modules. SolarWorld joined the petition in May. And the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) took up the case shortly after.

The petitioners blame their financial woes on “a deluge of imports,” which they say has distorted the solar market. Effective remedies under the Section 201 trade investigation can restore the U.S. solar market to an “economically rational state,” according to the Mayer Brown report.

However, SEIA notes that while Suniva and SolarWorld have been confronting serious financial struggles and seeking tariff support, manufacturers in other areas of the U.S. solar sector, such as racking systems, have been adding jobs. “Solar manufacturing already employs more than 38,000 Americans,” the SEIA jobs report states. “The fact that the petitioners are laying off employees doesn’t reflect the growth in American manufacturing jobs.”

"The notion that doubling the price of solar panels would somehow increase demand and create jobs is preposterous," Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of SEIA, said in an emailed statement. Careful analysis by SEIA and others bears this out, she said.

"Additionally, SEIA has spoken with dozens of manufacturers in the supply chain who ardently oppose this petition because the projected decline in demand will force them to lay off workers," said Ross Hopper. "SEIA’s members know what impact this will have on their ability to produce jobs; companies working in the solar industry today have been clear that Suniva’s sought-after remedy will be devastating to the American solar industry."

How new tariffs could boost job growth

To conclude there would be a net increase of at least 114,800 jobs under a new tariff scenario, Mayer Brown relied on a publicly available model developed by the Department of Commerce and data from GTM Research -- although the law firm took issue with the latter.

The report cites a recent GTM Research analysis that found the trade dispute could halt roughly half of projected U.S. solar installations through 2022, assuming a 40-cent-per-watt tariff for cells and a floor price of 78 cents per watt on modules. Between 2018 and 2022, GTM Research calculated total U.S. solar installations would fall from 72.5 gigawatts cumulatively to just 36.4 gigawatts under a 78-cents-per-watt minimum module price scenario. If the floor price were set higher, the market impact would be even greater, the analysis found.

According to the Mayer Brown report, the GTM Research analysis suffers from “significant flaws,” because it “fails to account for the impact of any new U.S. manufacturing growth and likely significantly understates the rate of growth in installed capacity that would occur if an effective remedy is imposed.”

Assuming that GTM Research’s analysis is correct, the authors say the proposed trade remedy would still result in significant job growth outside of manufacturing over the next five years. Between 2011 and 2015, the U.S. added 25 gigawatts of new installed capacity, according to GTM Research data. And over the same period, the industry added 102,002 non-manufacturing jobs -- 67,500 of which were installer jobs. Applying a similar trend analysis to GTM Research’s projected 36 gigawatts of new installed capacity over the five-year period from 2018 to 2022 results in an increase of 98,020 new non-manufacturing jobs over 2015 levels -- nearly 66,000 of which are estimated to be installer jobs.

So even in a scenario where solar installation numbers fall, the industry could still add a meaningful number of jobs, Mayer Brown argues. 

“Demand for solar in the United States is growing quickly and will continue to grow for the next five years under anyone’s estimates,” said Timothy Brightbill, partner in law firm Wiley Rein’s international trade practice representing SolarWorld.

Of course, by the same logic, job growth would be much greater if the U.S. market achieved the full 72.5 gigawatts of growth projected over the next five years.

Why a Section 201 trade case is so powerful

To estimate the number of manufacturing jobs, the Mayer Brown report assumes that the tariffs will restore U.S. production capacity to nearly 970 megawatts of cells and 875 megawatts of modules. The analysis also assumes total cell production costs of between 22 cents and 33 cents per watt and module production costs of between 22 cents and 24 cents per watt, citing government and industry data. Using the U.S. Department of Commerce’s “Regional Input-Output Modeling” system, the models show that a trade “remedy” would result in an increase of 12,429 to 16,141 manufacturing jobs, in short order.

Furthermore, “it is highly likely that imposition of an effective remedy and stabilization of price levels in the U.S. would result in substantial new investment in U.S. solar cell and module manufacturing capacity,” the jobs report states.

Assuming that a new tariff and minimum price boost domestic cell production capacity to 3 gigawatts and U.S. module capacity to 2.6 gigawatts, American cell and module manufacturing employment would increase by between 37,515 and 45,491 restored and new jobs, respectively. Economic output and wages paid in the cell and module manufacturing sectors would increase by between $2.5 billion and $3.3 billion each.

An increase in direct solar manufacturing jobs also benefits other sectors, including aluminum extrusions, silicon crystals and electronic components, the report states. This means the cell and module manufacturing sector will exert a strong multiplier effect, resulting in a significant impact on the broader U.S. economy.

“Solar manufacturing jobs generate many additional upstream and downstream jobs -- unlike installer jobs, which are at the end of the value spectrum,” said Brightbill.

“In order to have a strong solar industry, we need to have a strong solar manufacturing industry,” he continued. “Solar is a constantly evolving, fiercely competitive landscape, and innovations happen on the shop floor every day. Innovations are part of the manufacturing process, so if you don’t have the manufacturing process, then all of the know-how, all of the R&D, and all of the investment will go overseas. That’s why we feel so strongly that we need to maintain -- and grow -- manufacturing here in the U.S., especially when demand is as strong as it is.”

To see those benefits, Brightbill said it’s paramount that any trade remedy be comprehensive and apply also to America’s free trade partners, such as Mexico. “I think the worst thing that could happen would be to omit or leave out certain countries from relief,” he said. “That’s why Section 201 is so powerful, because it covers all countries and import sources.”

“Part of our plan is that relief will cause companies to build their next manufacturing plant here, rather than in Malaysia or Mexico. And that, of course, is directly in line with this administration’s goal of increasing U.S. manufacturing and U.S. jobs," said Brightbill.

Meanwhile, others in the solar industry flat out reject Suniva and SolarWorld’s assessment.

Did petitioners bring their business troubles on themselves?

The Suniva/SolarWorld paper “contains no economic analysis and posits a theory that turns supply and demand basics on its head by claiming that raising the price of a product somehow creates more demand for that product,” said Paul Nathanson, spokesperson for the Energy Trade Action Coalition (ETAC), a new group launched to coordinate opposition to the trade case.

“Of course, the opposite is true,” Nathanson continued. Imposing the tariff and floor price proposed under Section 201 would "double the price of solar panels [and] would reduce demand, devastate the solar industry, and result in the loss of thousands of manufacturing jobs,” he said. This is confirmed by SEIA’s assessment and GTM Research’s solar forecast, as well as trade case analyses conducted by third parties.

A Goldman Sachs research note, for instance, states that granting the Suniva and SolarWorld petition would increase all-in costs for utility-scale projects by an estimated 30 percent, and would increase prices for residential projects by 15 percent. “We expect solar installations would fall precipitously in the U.S. on the back of lower returns [resulting from a] higher-priced module,” the firm wrote. In its assessment, Bloomberg New Energy Finance said the Suniva accusations are “riddled with holes and hypocrisies.”

Conservative political groups The Heritage Foundation, the R Street Institute and the American Legislative Exchange Council have also criticized the trade petition as a "a step backward" and "the worst kind of protectionism." The three groups recently joined SEIA and others as members of ETAC.

Mounting dissent from across the political spectrum could help convince Republican President Donald Trump to reject new trade barriers, should a tariff proposal end up on his desk in the coming months. But the petition may not make it that far. If the ITC decides Suniva and SolarWorld have failed to show that a rising level of imports have caused them serious injury, the case will come to a close.

In written arguments submitted to the ITC yesterday -- ahead of the commission’s “injury hearing” on August 15 -- SEIA expounded on its criticism, claiming neither Suniva nor SolarWorld had been able to produce enough 72-cell modules to meet the demand in the fast-growing utility-scale solar market. Increasing crystalline silicon photovoltaics imports were then pulled into the U.S. utility market -- rather than flooding it -- to meet that need, according to SEIA.

Domestic producers also missed many opportunities for residential business, the trade group said. “SolarWorld and Suniva failed to fully qualify their product with major purchasers,” according to the written argument. Furthermore, “both experienced complaints from a litany of dissatisfied customers over late shipments, damaged products and general product unreliability,” SEIA said.

The ITC will weigh the validity of these and other arguments in the coming weeks.


          Enphase CEO Resigns as Microinverter Maker Shows Improvement in Second Quarter        

Microinverter maker Enphase is losing its long-time CEO, and gaining some financial headroom to bolster its flagging performance. 

On Tuesday, the same day the company reported its second-quarter 2017 earnings, Enphase reported the resignation of CEO Paul Nahi, who joined the company in 2007 and brought it to prominence as the first publicly traded microinverter maker with its 2010 IPO

Now, with the Petaluma, Calif.-based company struggling to survive against harsh competition from rival SolarEdge and incumbent string inverter makers such as SMA, Fronius and ABB, Nahi is leaving the company. 

In his absence, Enphase has created an office of the CEO, consisting of CFO Bert Garcia and COO Badri Kothandaraman, “to oversee and provide leadership for the company’s day-to-day activities.” In the meantime, the board of directors is searching for both internal and external candidates to replace Nahi, with the goal of naming his successor by the end of August. 

Board member Steve Gomo told analysts on a Tuesday conference call that Nahi’s resignation and the search for his replacement have been something the board has been working on “for some time,” adding, “We’re fairly confident we can hit that date” for finding a replacement by August 31. 

Meanwhile, Enphase’s second-quarter financial performance offered some hope for a turnaround. The company told investors in its fourth-quarter 2016 earnings call that it faced “substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.” 

Second-quarter revenues grew to $74.7 million, up 36 percent from the first quarter but down from $79.2 million in the same quarter last year. Revenues for the first six months of 2017 were $129.5 million, down from $143.3 million in the same period in 2016. 

Enphase sold about 775,000 microinverters, or 224 megawatts-DC, in the second quarter, up 39 percent from the first quarter. GAAP gross margin for the second quarter was 18.1 percent and non-GAAP gross margin was 18.4 percent. 

Second-quarter gross profit stood at $13.5 million, down from $14.1 million in the same quarter in 2016. Gross profit for the first six months of the year was $20.6 million, down from $25.9 million in the same period last year. 

While Enphase works to regain ground, the company's restructuring efforts, which led to it laying off about 18 percent of its workforce in January, appear to be bearing fruit in lowering operating expenses -- which are down 35 percent on a non-GAAP basis from the same quarter in 2016. Operating expenses were $22.8 million in the second quarter and $51.9 million for the first six months of 2017, down from $29.9 million and $60.8 million in the respective periods of 2016. CFO Bert Garcia said Enphase expects to see the full impacts of its restructuring reflected through the third quarter of this year. 

Enphase’s GAAP net loss for the second quarter was $12.1 million, or 14 cents per share, compared to a net loss of $16.7 million, or 36 cents per share, in the same quarter in 2016. As for the company’s tight cash position, Enphase generated $1 million of cash in the second quarter to end it with a total cash balance of $31 million.

Enphase is banking on its move to its next-generation IQ microinverters to continue to reduce its costs as it faces an increasingly competitive pricing environment, Garcia said. The company has seen about a 10 percent erosion in year-over-year pricing in 2017 compared to last year, driven by competition from the profitable SolarEdge. 

“In all candor, we have seen some competitive dynamics that we’ve been focused on,” he said. “I don’t think anyone's surprised that not only in Europe, but also in North America, those dynamics have played a part in our guidance and our financial performance in recent quarters."

At the same time, Enphase’s inventory levels decreased from 61 days in the first quarter to 31 days in the second quarter, nearing its goal of a 30-day inventory. Enphase's new IQ series inverters are expected to grow from 20 percent of its shipments in the second quarter to 100 percent by the end of the third quarter, Garcia said. 

These reductions in inventory costs helped somewhat to counterbalance a global shortage of components for its microinverters that Garcia said was responsible for about a 1 to 2 percent hit on its operating margins for the quarter. 

“In our last few calls, we’ve discussed our relentless focus on improving performance,” he said. “We’ve narrowed our operating losses, and created a solid foundation on which to sustain our profitability. Much of our focus is aimed at expanding margins through several supply chain optimizations now underway." All this effort should “make it possible to achieve non-GAAP profitability by Q4” and “place the company on a much improved financial footing as we enter 2018," he said. 

Enphase’s third-quarter 2017 guidance calls for revenues between $72 million and $80 million, and GAAP operating expense within a range of $22.5 million to $24.5 million. 

Enphase’s efforts to turn around its flagging fortunes over the past 12 months have included: a secondary offering of common stock in 2016 that resulted in net proceeds of approximately $16.2 million; a $10 million investment in January from John Doerr, chairman of Kleiner Perkins, and T.J. Rodgers, founder of Cypress Semiconductor and new Enphase board member; net proceeds of approximately $11.3 million under its At Market Issuance Sales Agreement in the first quarter of 2017; and an extension and refinancing of its term loan facility from $25 million to $50 million in February. 

"This was a solid quarter for a company that needs to hit its cost targets and gain market share,” GTM Research senior analyst Scott Moskowitz noted. “Gross margins rose to within guidance and shipments grew 39 percent quarter-over-quarter.” 

At the same time, “There are still some broad market risks for Enphase, namely, pricing pressure and uncertainty in the United States market due to the Suniva/SolarWorld Section 201 petition,” he said. “However, the potential challenge from newcomer Huawei has been delayed until at least next year, and ongoing adoption of the 2014 and 2017 versions of the U.S. National Electrical Code has been a boon.”

“Folks should still pay attention to Enphase's financial status, but it has taken all the necessary -- and painful -- steps to set itself up for a rebound from its recent troubles," Moskowitz said.

Enphase’s efforts to break into the residential energy storage market, meanwhile, remain challenged by what Garcia characterized as a “fragmented” market with “dozens” of players competing in key markets, such as Australia. The company doesn’t break out energy storage sales, but it certainly hasn't hit its original rosy projections.

          Comment on Opportunities And Challenges For Small And Midsized U.S. Manufacturing Businesses by Sandy Montalbano        
We see many companies moving toward localization. We agree that U.S. companies are reshoring and foreign companies are investing in the U.S. to be in close proximity to the U.S. market. It is a good strategic move for many companies due to rising offshore wages, counterfeit parts, IP risks, quality issues, risks along complicated supply chains, long lead times and carrying costs of large inventories. By reshoring and shortening supply chains, companies can greatly improve lead times, responsiveness to customers, quality, innovation and R&D. As companies adopt a more comprehensive total cost analysis they are finding that the “hidden costs” of offshoring often counterbalance any remaining savings from cheap price or labor abroad. These companies are investing and sourcing in the U.S. because it makes good economic sense for them to do so. The not-for-profit Reshoring Initiative’s free Total Cost of Ownership software helps corporations calculate the real P&L impact of reshoring or offshoring. In many cases, companies find that, although the production cost is lower offshore, the total cost is higher, making it a good economic decision to reshore manufacturing back to the U.S. http://www.reshorenow.org/TCO_Estimator.cfm
          CROCHET NEEDLE BOOK by samsstuff        

8.00 USD

Needle book Travel Case

True Story:
hand crocheted in bright orange
100% cotton yarn, sourced from US farms*
4 wool felt pages in a rose color
Vintage fabric lining, hand stitched
Sparkly orange button closure
2.75" x 3.25"

Perfect for storing embroidery/sewing needles & great for pins of all kinds: beading, straight, safety... Makes a great little travel kit: store a few safety pins, some needles & thread & attach a few buttons, for all those little emergencies :)

Wouldn't this be sweet in a little gift basket, filled with sewing supplies or crafty type items? Cute for teachers, thank yous, birthdays, Mother's Day, crafty bridesmaid gifts...

Tall Tale:
"Like her mother & her mother's mother she loved to sew & make things. The things she made played off the techniques of the past, but she made them all her own. Techniques were the same, built on years of history, but that's where the similarities ended, the subjects & styles were all her own..." SAM

Please contact the shop for other shipping options, if you need faster than standard shipping or shipping to an area not listed. I'll gladly ship internationally.

*Why does US sourced cotton make a difference? It helps encourage farms to grow cotton for an actual product, rather than paying them to not grow anything & offers a local alternative to importing/outsourcing the supply chain.


          VHS Economics in Florida        

Last week tech policy guru Adam Therier spoke at the State Policy Network Annual Conference on the state of innovation in the states, and what he said highlighted a steep contrast between reality of the dynamism in the labor market and Florida’s economic development focus. Technology and the economy are changing quickly but Florida’s policies have not kept pace.

Take for example driverless automobiles. The tech is not perfected yet, but driverless trucks already operate in Europe and they are soon coming to the United States. Awesome for car drivers, as the roads will be safer. Awesome for consumers, as drastically decreased supply chain costs will inevitably result in lower prices for consumer goods the trucks deliver.

But what about the actual truck drivers and their jobs?

Just like many other jobs in a dynamic, global, robotic, and internet connected global economy, they are going to be automated and never come back, despite BLS projections, which have been shown to underestimate skilled job growth. The White House estimated an 83% chance that jobs under $20/hr will eventually be automated. 

Florida has approximately 72,000 truck drivers with annual wages averaging about $37,00 per year - $18/hour. Uh-oh.

But in when it comes to economic development in Florida, the discussion around “losing” jobs is never really about true job destruction but about the lack of business incentives- a bureaucratically administered government program distributing financial benefits to out-of-state firms that was developed in the early 90s.

THE EARLY 1990s!!!!!!!!!

 Think about that - you were watching movies on a VHS tape when this program was created in Florida. Some young people reading this won’t even know what VHS is, that’s how old it is. Technology moved on, government did not.

 Yet they still tell us we’re losing jobs because we aren’t offering incentives, and that to fill employment gaps we need more incentives.

 False.

 The dynamic, global, and interconnected economy is why we’re losing jobs. And there simply is no logically consistent economic argument (or any empirical evidence) which proves that incentives will reverse or prevent impending job destruction.

 Is Enterprise Florida prepared to pay for each and every of the 72,000 jobs about to go away? Absolutely not. No reasonable economist would say that is an efficient way to approach job creation.  

 So how will those truck drivers get their jobs replaced? Gaining jobs to offset and overcome those losses requires embracing the dynamic, global and interconnected economy.

 A promising answer, the one provided by Thierer, is permissionless innovation. The only answer to jobs being destroyed is for new jobs to be created by the private sector and entrepreneurs - not bought with public money. It’s about fostering an environment that is neutral to existing firms and new firms so that rapid iteration can occur, as opposed to trying to incentivize older industries. It’s not about picking winners and losers, but about government being neutral to the entrance of firms and jobs into markets and equally neutral to outdated firms and jobs exiting the market. Instead of giving public benefits to industries deemed “qualified” - instead of spending its energy trying to fine tune incentives - Enterprise Florida could be building its entrepreneur support and examining polices that might be inhibiting entrepreneurs, like Florida's egregiously restrictive occupational licensing regime. 

Truck drivers could conceivably be Uber drivers, a job provided by private sector investment and innovation like the kind developed in the environment of permissionless innovation. But that is just one idea among many already being created and many more not yet conceived. But that is only going to happen if Florida gets serious about the innovation economy and leaves behind the VHS economics development of yesteryear.

          EPS Article: ZeeVee Assesses Onshore Vs OffShore        

February 12, 2016

Case Study: ZeeVee Assesses Onshore Vs Offshore

When ZeeVee Inc. was founded in 2007, its principals knew exactly where it would manufacture: China. A significant number of OEMs and electronics manufacturing services (EMS) providers had spent the prior decade moving manufacturing facilities there, so ZeeVee decided to follow best practices at that time.


Today, ZeeVee, a manufacturer of video and signal distribution technology, is a bit more tentative about that decision. The outsourcing of production to partners in China is complex and can be both rewarding and frustrating at the same time as Littleton, MA-based ZeeVee eventually found out. The decision of where to base production is a difficult one that demands the careful evaluation of all the pros and cons, according to Zee Vee executives.


“In 2007 we started in the consumer products market with a small device that was going to go into the living room,” said Steve Metzger, co-founder, vice president of hardware development and operations. “We were going to sell millions of these things to gadget geeks for Christmas. That was the plan, anyway. Conventional wisdom at the time dictated that high volume products had to go to China - so that was what we did.”


A couple of things happened on the way to the high-volume consumer market. First, in 2007 and 2008 it was becoming more difficult to break into the consumer electronics market. The PC was on the decline and smartphones and tablets were storming the market. The global economy was on the verge of a recession. And ZeeVee found some significant quality problems with its products.


“Our projected volume never materialized. If you don’t manufacture a zillion products in China they will build a batch [and] tear down that line to use for something else until your next batch. So every new order is like a new product introduction into manufacturing.”


At its worst, the failure rate at the end of the manufacturing line was up to 12 percent, requiring correction before shipping to customers. Occasionally things would sneak into the field as well.


“To fix products in the field is a dramatically larger expense than in manufacturing,” Metzger said. “We were trying to manage a production line in China but every two or three months we had to go over there—send a few engineers and audit the line—and for us it wasn’t practical to have people living in China to manage that.”


ZeeVee found what many other U.S.-based companies discovered about offshoring: manufacturing costs were significantly lower than in the U.S., but that benefit was offset by other factors. “During the 2008 worldwide recession, Chinese manufacturers were stuck writing off boatloads of unsold customer inventory,” Metzger explained.

“To avoid that in the future they changed the payment terms, requiring payment of at least half up front before producing a thing. That ties up cash early in the manufacturing process. So we then had the cost of a line of credit to order the goods, payment of the balance when the goods are shipped, and we then had to wait 4-5 weeks for the goods to arrive on a boat before we could sell them and actually make any money for ourselves,” he added.


At the same time ZeeVee executives are quick to point out there were a number of things its Chinese manufacturing partners did very well. “The quality of sheet metal in China is fantastic if you select the right supplier,” Metzger said. “Cable assemblies have significant labor content and the only cost effective way to source them is in China. With the correct supplier and a good process the quality is generally great.”


A Second Look

ZeeVee began to reassess its manufacturing and supply chain strategy in 2012. When ZeeVee first looked at U.S.-based EMS companies, executives said they had a hard time getting anyone’s attention.


“On our second pass at trying to manufacture in the US, we found that domestic companies were willing to talk and they learned a few things during the economic downturn," Metzger said. "We knew how much it cost to build our product in China so we knew what price we were trying to match. It would never be as cheap as China – maybe 15 percent higher—but the big benefit was that the overall quality improvement was phenomenal."


Domestic EMS companies were becoming more cost-competitive with overseas manufacturers by automating processes previously done by hand. “If you look at metrics such as the cost of cash, carrying costs and field failures, it can make sense to manufacture in the U.S. There are many more factors than the simple cost of the PCB as it leaves the line.”

ZeeVee also found it had better control over its supply chain in the U.S. The straw that broke the camel’s back: “If you give the Chinese the freedom to select whatever component meets your specs you can save a lot of money but you may end up with a component that fails. We had a certain component on one type of module that failed after running in the field for a brief while. We ended up tracing it back to the supplier and they said ‘that isn’t our part.’ It turned out to be counterfeit. That really caused us to question whether we did the right thing by offshoring.”


ZeeVee sources its strategic components directly from suppliers. Other devices are sourced through electronics distributors. “The lesson we learned is we have much tighter control over our sourcing and we can really narrow down our supplier base to avoid quality issues.”


When ZeeVee develops a product “on day zero we must approve the vendors' list and component spec for every single component,” said Metzger. “Our EMS will do the sourcing and some pricing. Based on their suggestions we might add vendor or part variant to the AVL (Approved Vendors List) after the initial phase of production. We will see where it makes sense and work with the EMS to qualify parts in a controlled fashion. That’s something we always had some questions about when sourcing material offshore.”


One of the side benefits of manufacturing in the U.S., said Chris Scurto, VP of marketing and North American sales at ZeeVee, “is the ability to take our staff and customers to see this stuff being made and the state-of the art facilities. The customers get the idea that this is serious manufacturing. When we take our employees there they get a better sense of ownership in the products when they see it being made. We couldn’t do that in China.”


“The one thing I would conclude is it really is all about customer satisfaction,” said Bob Michaels, CEO of ZeeVee. “At the end of the day the cost is one thing but you can’t afford to have a field failure. That will tank a company’s reputation. “We now have one of the longest – 5 year – warranties in the business. We could not have dome that if we had remained exclusively in China. We are only comfortable with that if we have a tight control over the process.”


ZeeVee, with revenue of less than $50 million, is four times the size it was when it was founded. One of its EMS partners is EIT LLC based in Methuen, MA.

          Wildlife Trafficking Is Big Business For Criminals, Even Here At Home        

While agents from U.S. Fish and Wildlife lured a smuggler to a storage facility in the Bronx with the promise of $400,000 worth of illegal rhino horn as part of a sting operation, Sheldon Jordan readied his team to raid the man's warehouse in Canada.

The smuggling ring's Richmond, British Columbia headquarters was posing as an antique auction house, where police found piles of illegal ivory, rhino horn and coral. Animal parts were stored next to 50,000 tablets of ecstasy, bags of marijuana and cocaine.

THAILAND-IVORY/

Wildlife trafficking is a global phenomenon. Most people think of shark fins and elephant tusks on black markets in East Asia, but Jordan, director general of Wildlife Enforcement at Environment Canada, says it's much closer to home. He's is in charge of rooting it out across the country.

Jordan recovered a laptop during the sting that mapped out an illegal network of suppliers and buyers stretching across borders, proof of Canada's connection to a global animal trafficking market that's also tied to guns and drugs.

Black-market prices have skyrocketed to meet growing demand in recent years, leading to a surge in trafficking of everything from exotic timber to the scaly pangolin, the world's most poached animal. Conservative estimates value the industry at US$91 billion annually.

With lax international regulation and the promise of huge profits, criminal networks have been quick to capitalize.

Seizure Of Illegal Pangolins In Medan

"Animals and plants are just another low-risk, high-reward commodity for transnational organized crime," explains Kelvin Alie, executive vice president of the International Fund for Animal Welfare.

While the world focuses on the usual suspects in Africa and Asia, Canada has quietly become both a destination and a source country. Turtles, lizards and birds are smuggled here for collectors. Polar bear hides and narwhal tusks, prized as trophies, and bear gall bladders and wild ginseng valued for medicinal purposes, are illegally exported.

Often seen as victimless, wildlife crime struggles to capture the attention it deserves.

Beyond the destruction of ecosystems and devastation of animal populations, it can spark violence and unrest, creating the conditions for poverty, hunger and draught, leading to human casualties, explains Jordan.

Governments should focus on criminals and corruption to dismantle the trading networks that breed violent crime.

Media — and the U.S. State Department — tend to pay attention to environmental crime only when it's connected to terrorism. The Lord's Resistance Army in the Congo trades ivory for arms and Al-Shabbab's insurgency in Somalia is financed partly by illegal coal mining.

Polar Bear Skin

Alie says the connection to terrorism is overblown. Instead, governments should focus on criminals and corruption to dismantle the trading networks that breed violent crime.

That is exactly what Environment Canada is doing with a pilot project launched last year to crack down on the polar bear trade.

Using microchips to track animals, enforcement officers follow the supply chain to ensure polar bears are hunted and purchased legally. Jordan hopes to share this tactic and technology with other nations to help safeguard their animal populations.

"This is a problem that grew very quickly, like a grassfire," says Jordan.

He says Canadians need to understand that wildlife trafficking isn't confined to faraway jungles. It's big business for major criminal networks, and it's happening right here in Canada.

When it comes to back office enterprise functions, from finance and HR to supply chain, challenges are everywhere.

Then, there are the large, monolithic, heavily-customized on-premise ERP systems most organizations invested in during the early 2000s — to the tune of nine figures in some cases — that are now sprawling with bound-together applications and a complex web of integration. Finally, failures of complex IT systems have led to vulnerabilities and security incidents that make companies chomping at the bit to offload that risk.

          Data science key to Monsanto improving its supply chain        

Monsanto CIO Jim Swanson has outlined five key elements of Monsanto’s digital transformation: customer centricity, internal business process disruption, technology and automation, data and decision science, and leadership and change management.

He views all of those facets as integral to breaking through the "clay layer" of mid-level employees, present in every organization, who may resist short-term changes in spite of long-term gain — the rank-and-file who can either inhibit digital transformation or become its greatest champions. In so doing, he asserts, IT is poised to take on its most rigorous and most critical role of "transformation agent," providing tangible and sustainable value while moving the business forward.

          Comment on Guide to BIM Object Data by Tim Aikin        
Jonny Morgan makes a really important point about the workflow, quality and availability of BIM Objects. Should the design team be required to swap out generic components for manufacturers ones? It requires common data structures without this then it’s just a big overhead and that means there is no efficiency at this part of the process. On a project I am working on, the Contractor is obtaining the Asset Information from the supply chain using spread sheets. We did try to get them to use a PDT format but they were set up for their own method. We are then processing their data in to our Product Library (imports/exports COBie) and completing the data set (photos, associated documents etc.). Then this is being imported/transferred into an Asset Information Model (imports/exports COBie) which is built up from the different 3D BIM models. Asset Types are updated to the actual products in this environment. The Product Library in addition to imports has a direct link for the AIM app to the product library app. It’s our common data environment. This workflow is not uncommon and examples are Solibri, 4Projects, Conject not to mention some CAD vendors. To speed up the process of getting information into the Product Library we have developed different tools one being an exporter for Revit Families. This exports from a Revit Family a COBie data set (xml, json and xlsx). It parses the parameters data, mapping to the Cobie.Type table and anything else is put in Cobie.Attribute. This process shows up an incredible lack of consistency between object libraries but at least we get the core Asset Information which for clients is Product Name, description, ModelNumber, ModelReference. We already have the Supplier Address which invariably is missing from the objects because supplier information will vary between countries. Obviously we have developed our own technology, which we can develop as standalone and connected rather then buried in functionality of one single system. As we are in the FM domain we have to have a product library with depth of quality information. Ultimately for validity and authority this will be synchronised directly with product manufacturers via data services and not through 3rd party objects. (in my opinion)

          The iphone photo effect leading the two big secret of android phones        

  iphone photo effect

  Although the iphone 6 quality only 8 million pixel camera pixels, far below the many flagship android mobile phone 20 million pixels.But we found that, with the iphone 6 / iphone 6 plus out of the picture, but tend to look better.Why is this?For solving this problem, we first need to avoid such a misunderstanding: that is not mobile phone camera pixels is higher, take out the photos, the better.So let's learn about the iphone photo effect lead the cause of the android mobile phone:

  The iphone photo effect leading the two big secret of android phones

  A secret, the core advantage of the algorithm

  Compared to some of the pictures or live software own facial features, apple's iOS system for image algorithm is the core effect of photos look good reason, from PC to Mac, apple itself has many years of technology accumulation in image processing, its itself has a unique advantage in the display effect, from the system, is applied to the hardware at the bottom of the assembly language, apple heavily involved in model is, many Android phones could not do good algorithm combined with hardware and software integration, let Android of through the system at the "optimization" look better.

  Secret 2, quality excellent image sensor with screen

  As fashion mark of the smart phone industry, the iphone represents the development trend of smart phone, so to speak, therefore, for mobile phone parts suppliers to enter the supply chain, is often a kind of pleasure, therefore, provide the best and the most advanced iphone parts has become each big mobile phone parts supplier a tacit agreement, although the iphone and Android phones with SONY cameras, but the iphone in the position in industry, in addition to the hardware quality control, assembly code at the bottom of the opening and optimization, can let the iphone finally get good performance.

  , of course, in fact as Android mobile phone sales has increased, the Android mobile phone brands such as samsung, can also discuss with mobile phone spare parts supply conditions, from quality control to optimize, comprehensive promotion pictures.

  Ok, these two points above is the reason why iphone pictures effect leading android phone, you know now?!

  iphone parts

  By users like the iphone, in addition to the exquisite workmanship, beautiful appearance, smooth system, rich applications, there is a very important reason is that it USES the highest quality mobile phone parts, to say the iphone mobile phone parts, often represents the industry's highest quality, it also reduces the users from the side on the cost of decision, make it tend to consider the iphone first.

  The iphone parts, the best mobile parts!

  Recently online exposure the iPhone 6 s list of suppliers, we can see from the list, we are familiar with the sharp, LG, among other parts supplier is not known by consumers, but also in different fields are top manufacturers.

  , according to the suppliers of apple's latest map its global suppliers has reached more than 600, chip, LCD screen and battery core components, etc., are all rich capital, strong strength of enterprises, visible apple for control of the supply chain.For consumers, if you want to buy a mobile phones parts quality is top, then the iPhone is absolutely not.

  Therefore, we can also see that consumers are so sought after by consumers, we are a point.For other brands of mobile phone manufacturer, this, also need to learn from apple.


          Most iPhone parts made in China? Very different facts        

iphone parts

  Apple iPhone supply chains around the world, which Apple provides promising advanced components, we are more familiar, including AMD, Intel, Samsung, TSMC, Qualcomm, they are also responsible for the production of high-tech requirements are less parts manufacturers these vendors may we usually rarely heard, there are also responsible for iPhone assembly work, such as Foxconn. If someone asks these suppliers primarily in the country which then, according to our previous knowledge, you are likely to say that China, because China has cheap labor, but the reality is quite different. According to the latest survey report Sunyu Tao, Associate Professor of Management and Economics, Dalian University of Technology and Professor of Economic Geography National University of Ireland Seamus Grimes, the Chinese in fact, accounted for only a small part of Apple's global supply chain vendors.

  Most of Apple's iPhone parts made in China? Very different facts

  Sunyu Tao, Associate Professor and Professor Seamus Grimes of Apple's global supply chain carried out a detailed investigation, and then make the statistics, and the text "Apple's global value chain in China's role" to be interpretation, concludes a sad conclusion: in fact, the Chinese mainland in the global supply chain of Apple is responsible for most of the assembly work.

  Most of Apple's iPhone parts made in China? Very different facts

  Although responsible for the technical content of the higher parts suppliers mostly not the Chinese mainland enterprises, but they have many of them set up a subsidiary in mainland China, is mainly responsible for the assembly work, such as AMD, Fairchild, Qualcomm, which we are more familiar is Foxconn. But the establishment of the core components of the plant very few manufacturers in mainland China, on the whole, the proportion of the supply chain, manufacturers set up a subsidiary in China was 44.2% (there is mostly assembly work).

  In fact, Apple's iPhone accounted for suppliers of Origin is this:

  Apple iPhone is actually the core science and technology and China's close ties we imagined. Earlier, the US presidential candidate Donald Trump will put forward more than once, the iPhone production line to move back to the United States, although the present situation is unlikely, but along with the development of artificial intelligence technology, it is likely that the future work of those responsible for assembling the production line will be the first to return to the United States ......


          Apple iPhone 5SE sold better than expected, but it seems not enough        

iphone 5SE 

  Apple plans to sell more small screens iPhone 5SE to boost overall sales. Digitimes recently cited the supply chain news that Apple has increased to suppliers of chip orders in the second quarter of this year reached 500 million, last quarter this figure was 350-400 million.

  Meanwhile iPhone 6s orders were down, and Cook said after the meeting in revenue needed to reduce channel inventory plans match.

  Apple has just released the 13 years the most dismal time earnings, accounting for two-thirds of iPhone traffic revenue fell the most serious. 2016 3 months, Apple sold a total of 51.19 million iPhone, 16% over the same period the previous year less, which is 10 million units.

  According to Apple's forecast for third-quarter revenue will still be down 13 percent from the same period last year, which means that 5 million iPhone 5SE also does not fill the entire decline in the amount of iPhone.

  iPhone 5SE can not solve the problem of the decline in the short term, for Apple, will be released in September iPhone 7 can stimulate consumer desire to purchase it becomes essential. In an interview on CNBC this week, Tim Cook expressed iPhone 7 will be "exciting not go to sleep," the new features. But if we fly a variety of disclosure of information, and present it in your hand iPhone 6s in the appearance of the difference is not too large.

  To solve the problem of the iPhone, Apple is also trying to find more on emerging markets such as India virgin. In 2016 released the first quarter earnings report, Apple said iPhone sales in India grew by 76 percent, revenues up 38%.

  But the Indian market base is too small, analysts have pointed out, iPhone sales in India, only about 800,000 in the fourth quarter of last year, accounting for 1% of the total.

  One reason is that mobile phone prices are generally low on the Indian market, iPhone is overpriced. Apple tried to do this recycling of used mobile phones launched in India, but the efforts have failed on Thursday, Indian officials have said that the application made by Apple have been dismissed.

  Declining issues the iPhone, it may take a long time to resolve.


          A financial analysis of the potential of dead trees from the boreal forest of eastern Canada to serve as feedstock for wood pellet exports.        
Global demand for forest biomass feedstock has increased drastically in recent years, mainly due to the implementation of policies and strategies for climate change mitigation and renewable energy production in many jurisdictions. The biomass from dead trees has been recognized by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as a promising source of forest biomass for bioenergy at the global scale both because of its wide scale availability and its potential to limit global warming. In eastern Canada, dead trees are not only very abundant but are also widely perceived by lumber and pulp and paper producers as contaminants in the wood supply chain with marginal profitability. The general aim of this study was to determine the conditions of profitability of an eastern Canada independent sawmill (i.e., unaffiliated with a pulp plant) to produce pellets destined for international export using either co-products or roundwood from dead trees as feedstock. We compared the yield and monetary value of dead trees at various sizes and degradation levels for the production of wood pellets, alone or in conjunction with the production of lumber, to current market conditions. Our results suggest that using dead trees for lumber and pellets is almost as profitable as using them for lumber and pulp, with a difference of about 1–12% depending on tree size. Dead trees from all classes of wood degradation could serve as an interesting feedstock for pellets because wood density was only slightly affected by wood degradation. Small dead trees (DBH < 15 cm) could serve for all scenarios, as the difference between revenues and costs remained generally minimal between them. Larger dead trees did not appear to represent a financially viable option under current market prices, unless suitable subsidies or other types of financial support are provided. The sustainability criteria applied by European consumers could therefore be a determining factor for the future importance of dead trees from eastern Canada as a source of feedstock for wood pellet production.

          CADENA SUMINISTRO        
Por Cadena de Suministro o Cadena de Abasto (en inglés, Supply Chain) se entiende la compleja serie de procesos de intercambio o flujo de materiales y de información que se establece tanto dentro de cada organización o empresa como fuera de ella, con sus respectivos proveedores y clientes.

Aunque en el cuerpo de conocimiento existe una clara diferencia entre "Cadena de Abasto" y "Logística", en la práctica diaria esa diferenciación se ha ido perdiendo, por lo que es común utilizar ambos términos indistintamente; sin embargo, es importante entender las definiciones precisas dadas por el Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), la autoridad más importante en la materia a nivel mundial.

Product Developers Guide: Introduction
To make the product development journey smoother, the IndustrialArts Consultancy team has put together the creative entrepreneurship lectures entitled: "The Complete Guide to Successful Product Development." With an introduction to research and  development, patents, confidentiality  agreements and costs, as well as advice  about seeking outside investment, licensing and marketing, the Guide helps you  plan and assess how to profit from your idea.

Developing a product can be a thrilling experience. Unfortunately it can also be a costly and very long process and the reality is that most ideas don’t make it to become successful products. For a specialist product design and development consultancy like The IndustrialArts, solving problems and turning ideas into reality is something we do every day, but how do you make sure the product is a success? Just making your idea isn’t enough. You need to make sure it will make you money.

To help you take the first steps with your product we have created this guide to break the process down into five key steps:
  • Assessing your idea
  • Protecting your idea
  • Developing your idea
  • Selling your idea
  • Funding your idea
PART 1: Assessing The Idea
This is the starting point for any new invention and in many cases also the end. Not all inventions have the potential to be commercially successful and there are numerous reasons why people decide not to pursue the idea. This is the stage where you find out if your product has already been thought of, whether the product is viable in a market and also if there is a market big enough that may need your product.

There are a few questions you have to ask yourself:

Has your invention already been thought of?Frequently inventors have ideas that already exist, either as products or as patents in which case it is unlikely to be worth pursuing. In many cases a similar but not identical product or patent will exist, in which case you need to be sure your idea offers a big advantage. Thoroughly searching the internet and patent databases (see details later) is time well spent.

Who would use your product?
Is your product aimed at consumers or businesses? Is the market the whole population; is it national, gender specific or aimed at a specific demographic? It is useful to imagine a typical or range of typical uses. If you have close, trustworthy friends and family who fit this profile you can get their opinion but beware influencing their reaction. You need to be sure they aren’t just saying they like it because they don’t want to disappoint you.

What are the reasons people will buy your product?
What problems does it solve that aren’t solved by existing products or what advantages does it give? People have managed without the product until now, so why should they suddenly need or want it?

What is the potential size of the market?
This can be difficult to estimate but data does exist for sales volumes of most consumer product categories be it soft drinks, electrical appliances, furniture or medical devices. If such data is not available you may need to make an initial estimate from other sources, for example if you are designing a new baby toy you might use census data on the number of babies born each year to estimate how many such products are bought. When estimating the potential sales volumes be conservative - few new products will gain a market share of more than 5% unless they are truly revolutionary.

Can you protect your idea?
This is important as without any competitor company can copy your idea and use their market position and financial muscle to squeeze you out. The next section covers how to do this with patents and design registration.

What are the risks and difficulties you will face?
Developing, launching and profiting from your invention will be a long and complex process and problems can occur at any stage. Things to think about include; can you get the funding to develop it? Does the product require new technology to be developed? If so could there be problems or delays? Can you make the product for the target cost? Can you find distributors? Will consumers like it? Will retailers stock it? How will it be marketed?

What will the development and set up cost be?
There are many stages to developing a new product as explained in the Developing your idea section. The amount of work involved can vary dramatically from product to product. As well as the design and engineering costs other costs will include, prototypes, production moulds and set up costs, approvals and testing, initial production, shipping and storage. For a simple product these will be a few tens of thousands of pounds. For a complex product such as a medical device these can run into hundreds of thousands and even millions of pounds.

What is the target product cost and profit margin?
What will each product cost to make and what price can it be sold for? Most products are distributed through a supply chain with manufacturers, brand owners and retailers all handling the product. Understanding the pricing and margin each party needs to make is key to success. Many retailers will look to buy at half the consumer price or sometimes less. If you can’t offer them the profit level they need at the retail price they think will sell then they won’t stock the product. Do your research on the sector and retailers relevant to your product. What is the price of products of a similar size, type and complexity? Contact factories and retail buyers for initial price estimates.

What is the potential return on investment?
With information on the possible size of the market and profit margin you can make a very rough estimate of how much money the invention could make. Is it enough to pay back the development, set up, patent, distribution, administration, marketing and other costs? How long will the investment take to pay back? What is the best case and worst case? Does that make a good investment for you or an outside investor?

Finding the answers to these questions make take a bit of searching but will tell you whether the invention is worth pursuing. This process should be thorough but should not involve spending a lot of money. It may seem like a lot of bother but many of the answers to these questions can form part of your business plan (see later).

It is important to be unbiased and dispassionate in this analysis it is easy to get so emotionally attached to your ideas that you ignore the problems and weaknesses of the invention. Remember most successful inventors have many ideas before they find the true winner. Deciding not to pursue an idea, which doesn’t add up, is a positive result &ndash it is better to save your money and energy for the great idea still to come.

PART 2: Protecting The Idea
For the small inventor, protecting your ideas is critically important. If you don’t have some form of protection there is nothing to stop a large competitor taking you idea and using their financial and marketing muscle to squeeze you out of the market. Patents are generally the best way to protect your ideas if they can be obtained but other protections such as registered designs, or trademarks and copyright also exist.

During the process of developing your idea it will be necessary to speak to individuals and companies who may become partners, investors, suppliers or customers. It is vital that this is done under confidentiality. A Confidentiality Agreement or Non Disclosure Agreement is the best way to do this.

Patents
There are three general requirements for your invention to be patentable. It must be novel, useful and not obvious. To count as novel your invention must be new, in other words; never publicly known, used, or sold anywhere in the world. If your invention is described in printed material or available to buy anywhere in the world it is not patentable. To satisfy the criteria for utility your invention must be useful. It must perform a function and benefit society in some way. Anything that does not perform cannot be patented. To avoid being classed as obvious, your invention must give new results and should not be just an incremental improvement over existing products. To be different in design alone will not get your invention patented.

It is advisable to use registered patent attorney to help understand whether you can patent your invention, what it would cost and the level of protection it would give. They can also help you draft you application and manage all aspects of maintaining and enforcing your patent rights. However before you instruct an agent and start incurring costs it is advisable to do some online patent research on your own. Using the various free online patent databases such as USPTO, Espacenet Google Patents, etc., it is possible to find many relevant patents and documents and gain a good idea about whether you idea is novel or not. If after your search, things still look positive or you are unsure what your search results mean, then taking your results to a professional patent attorney will help them get straight up to speed and reduce their search fees.

Once you have worked out that your invention is likely to be patentable there are a number of decisions to be made such as what, where and when to patent. Patenting your product in multiple territories is time consuming and expensive so it is important to think carefully before making your application.

What to patent?

How you draft your patent what you claim as your invention can have a big impact on the future earning potential of the idea. If your claims are too narrow and specific, competitors will be able find ways of avoiding infringement by making small changes. Conversely if your claims are too broad, the patent examiners may judge it is prior art (technology and inventions already public) or not inventive. A good patent agent will help you draft your application to get this important balance right.

When to patent?

There are generally two approaches to timing your patent application either to patent as early as possible, or as late as possible.

Patenting early means you are less likely to get beaten by a competitor registering the same or similar idea. If you know people are working in the same field, this could be important. The disadvantage of patenting early is that you have to pay fees for application, searches and examinations much sooner and potentially well before the product has been launched.

By contrast, making your patent application at the last possible moment, before the product is made public means money is saved. Because protection is given from the date of the first application, and one year is generally allowed for the search and examination process, you get at least one year of worldwide protection without having to invest heavily in applications, translations and patents agents for every territory. This can allow you to judge the success of the product, the potential in different markets and start potentially start earning profits before having to spend large amounts on patent protection. Another advantage is that your patent application can be based around a fully resolved and detailed product allowing it to be stronger and broader.

Other Protection
If it is not possible to attain a patent or if you want further protect you idea, there are other ways for you to protect your intellectual property (IP)

Registered Design
A registered design can protect the aesthetic design of your invention. It is purely about the form and materials and does not cover how the product works or is manufactured. Design Registration is a relatively cheap, quick and easy process but is only available in certain countries, including the UK.

Trademarks
Trademarks are symbols that distinguish goods and services in the market place like logos and brand names. If your product has a certain name or logo that you want associated with it, it’s worth getting it trademarked so that no one else can take the name and logo.

Copyright
Copyright is an automatic right, which applies when the work is fixed – in other words, when it is created or written down. It covers the printed documents, text, journalistic and literary works, images, music and video recordings. It has limited applicability to products but offer some protection of your work.

PART 3: Developing The Idea
Undertaking a new product development requires a whole series of tasks to be performed. Typically the product design and development process is split into phases, each with distinct activities and deliverables. Every development has its unique challenges and so the order and breakdown of these phases should be arranged to address the key challenges and minimise the risk of development. Many inventors will look to license their invention and so the aim of the design process is not to get a product into production but to get an investor or licensee on board.

The Full New Product Development Process
Details of the all the key stages of the product development process are given below and also on the services section of IDC’s website.

User Insight
Researching and understanding the needs and behaviour of the potential users ensures that people will connect with the product - a key requirement for success in the market. Insights gained in the research stage often lead to new product innovations.

Concept Generation
This is where the skill, experience and creativity of the design team are used to generate designs, which address the identified needs and come together to create a vision for the successful desirable product. Design concepts can be presented as sketches, storyboards, simple models or fully photo-rendered images.

R&D
For technology led inventions, research and experimentation is a vital part of the product development process. Developing test rigs and experiments helps gain understanding of how to apply scientific and technical principles to create an inventive new product.

Patent Support
The process of developing an innovative new product needs to go hand in hand with the patent process to ensure as many of the important features of the product are protected and that competitor patents are avoided.

Engineering Design
To ensure that the design is translated into a successful product suitable for high quality, cost effective manufacture, this stage of the development defines all the details of every part needed to make the product. A detailed understanding of design for manufacture and assembly and an close attention to detail is a must in this stage.

Electronics Design
Working alongside the mechanical engineering design, the electronics engineers design the circuits, lay out PCBs, write software and ensure all details of the electronics are suitable for manufacture and interface with the mechanical parts of the design.

Prototyping
Prototypes are vital for any new product. They not only provide confidence they design is correct and the product will work, they can also be used for marketing purposes. For inventors a good prototype can be the key to securing a investment or a licence agreement. See also the section below on designing for investment below.

Regulatory Support
Many products have to conform to regulatory standards governing safety, function and performance. This will require product to be thoroughly tested prior to release. The requirements of the standard should be identified at the beginning of the development to avoid difficulties later on.

Project Management and Support
The development project manager coordinates the efforts of the whole development team as well as all external suppliers (e.g. mould makers, manufacturers, shipping companies, marketing agencies, test houses, patent attorneys, etc.) to ensure the product is launched successfully. Ensuring product quality and managing the transition to manufacture is one of the key project management tasks.

Development for Investment or Licensing
Frequently for an inventor, the purpose of employing a product design company is not to undertake the full development but to develop the concept to a stage that it can prove the viability and commercial potential of the product to licensees and investors. The two key requirements at this stage are to prove the viability of the invention and to create a vision for the successful production product. This can be done with sketches and illustrations but will be more convincing with ’Looks Like, Works Like’ models. Making one model, which looks and works like the finished product can involve doing much of the design and engineering development so often two models are made.

Visual Model
Having a clear vision for your product is important when trying to sell the benefits of your invention. A high quality aesthetic model illustrating what the product would look like is one of the best ways to communicate that vision and get potential investors and buyers excited about your idea.

Functional Model
The ’Works Like’ model is made to prove that it is technically possible to build your invention. Potential investors and buyers will respond more positively if they can physically see and touch what you are trying to sell to them. The functional model does not have to be particularly elegant in design, but your model will have to represent what the invention can do and that it can actually do it.

PART 4: Selling The Idea
Being able to sell the benefits of your invention is crucial to success. Think hard about how to communicate the benefits of your idea to consumers and buyers. Selling is also important if you are looking for licensees or investors. You have to be able to convince them that your idea makes sense to invest in and that you will in turn provide them with a fantastic return on investment. A good, well-thought out and structured business plan is the key to making investors want to invest in you, your product and your business venture.

Business Plan
Your business plan is the blueprint to how you are going to make money from your invention. Writing a business plan will help you plan out your business, pre-empt some of the difficulties and, crucially, estimate the capital required and the likely return on investment for your product.

There are many books and websites dedicated to writing business plans but the basic should be:

Executive summary – about you product, patent and the business opportunity
Marketing research – analysis of the market potential, competitors, pricing etc
Commercialisation plan – detail of how will you profit from the invention, e.g. licensing,
Sales projections – estimates for pricing, sales volumes and profit margins
Manufacturing – plans, costs and timescales for development and production set up
Management team – profiles for your management team
Financial statements – projections for cash flow, return on investment and profit and loss


Commercialisation
There are many different ways to profit from a great invention. It is important to think carefully to choosing the best one for you and your investors.

Selling your PatentIt may be possible to sell your patent to another person or company and receive a one-off payment for it. This will mean you will lose the rights to your invention and not receive any future royalties so if the product is a huge success you will not see the benefit. On the plus side you will potentially get cash in hand without risking much of your own capital if the product fails you still have your money.

Licensing your PatentAnother route to commercialise your invention is to licence it. This means that you will retain the ownership of whilst allowing another party to make, use and sell the invention in exchange for royalty payments. The license may be exclusive or to more than one party. You may grant a worldwide license or agree deals territory by territory. You may also choose to issue licenses for specific uses or industries. Use industry and product directories and registers to identify potential licensees.

Start your Own BusinessYou can of course launch your own company, which will sell the product. This means that the entire responsibility of fundraising, manufacturing, selling as well as distribution, is on you. You will have to come up with a business and sales plan and conduct a market survey to make sure that your start up company will be able to fully exploit the opportunity.

PART 5: Funding The Idea
You may be fortunate enough to be able to fund the project yourself, however, most inventors need financial backing from an outside source. Getting other people on board can also be helpful as they will have the skills and experience that can aid in the development of your invention. Finding funding can be one of the greatest challenges in the entire inventing process and it is impossible for us to go into great detail. However, we do have a few tips that may help.

Research
You must research different funding strategies thoroughly; there are many companies and government organisations that can help you with funding as well as putting you in contact with the right people.

Finding Partners
It is always best to have several money-raising options as an entrepreneurial inventor. One of these options is finding financial partners, either an individual, a group or a firm that may have a vested interest in your product. You can provide the invention and your partners may bring the rest of what you need to the table. Your partner can provide whatever they do bring to the team for free, in exchange for a percentage of any future profits. There are a few different ways to find partners; you can place an advert in a newspaper or magazine, contact an investors organization or approach a bank and some other traditional financial sources who may be willing to finance your idea.

Venture Capital
Another way to find capital is to find a Venture Capital Firm. This firm will invest in your growing company and will give you the financial backing you need in order to advertise, do research, build an infrastructure and develop the product. The Venture Capital Firm will make its money by owning a stake in your company. Financial agents who work for a finder’s fee may be able to help you find a Venture Capital Firm that is willing to invest in your company.

Local and Government Programmes
Local, state and government programmes that provide businesses with financial assistance are another option to finance your invention and company. Try to research small business funding and angel network programs. Another option is to research government grants.

PART 6: Product Developers Check List
The following checklist is a general guide to help you track your progress. Should you need more clarity on a certain issue, please refer to the Inventor’s guide handbook for more detailed advice.
  1. Have you researched the web and patent databases to make sure that your invention hasn’t already been thought of?
  2. Who is your target user and why will they buy your product rather than the existing or competitor products?
  3. Have you conducted market research to estimated the potential size of the market and understand the distribution chain?
  4. Are you sure your invention is patentable?
  5. Have you estimated how much investment is needed for development and set up?
  6. What will be the estimated cost of manufacture per unit and your predicted sales price?
  7. Is their sufficient return on investment to interest investors?
  8. Have you written a business plan?
  9. Do you have a model or prototype to demonstrate the viability and benefits of your invention?
  10. Will you sell or licence the IP or manufacture and sell the product?
  11. Have you secured funding or investment?
  12. Do you have the right team of individuals and partner companies to deliver your plan?
If you have good answers to all these questions you will be well on the way to making your invention a reality
          Campaign group Avaaz calls on EU to block $66 billion Bayer-Monsanto deal        

By Foo Yun Chee

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Online campaigns group Avaaz has called on European Union antitrust regulators to block Bayer's purchase of Monsanto, saying it would hurt innovation and competition and push up prices.

The $66 billion deal, the last of three mega takeovers in the sector, has faced criticism from environmental and agricultural groups as well as lawmakers on both sides of the Atlantic, concerned about the combined entity's market share.

Avaaz said in a letter to European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestagerhad that more than one million people had signed its petition opposing the merger of the German and U.S. companies, which it said would have a major impact on farmers.

"It would control more than one-fourth of the combined global market for seeds and pesticides and lock farmers ever tighter into a supply chain for products that threaten biodiversity and food security by creating dangerous, genetically modified and pesticide-addicted monocultures," Avaaz lawyer Nick Flynn said in the letter.

The European Commission, whose preliminary review of the deal will end on Aug. 7, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

U.S.-incorporated Avaaz, which is funded by its members, is active in climate change, poverty, conflict and corruption issues.

Bayer has been bracing for a full-scale EU investigation. In May it said it expected to close the deal by the end of the year, suggesting it expects a four-month probe at the end of the EU's initial scrutiny.

The company has agreed to sell its Liberty herbicide and LibertyLink-branded seeds businesses to address regulatory concerns. Both compete with Monsanto's Roundup weed killer and Roundup Ready seeds.

Dow only secured regulatory clearance to acquire DuPont after pledging to sell key research and development activities and other major assets.

And ChemChina had to sell a large chunk of its subsidiary Adama's pesticide, herbicides and insecticides business, its seed treatment products for cereals and sugar beet and a substantial part of its plant growth regulator business for cereals to win EU approval to buy Syngenta.

          Bread of Heaven        
Right now I am working with fellow editors on the next issue of Dark Mountain. It's a non-fiction and visual exploration of technology and tools, juxtaposing an increasingly machine-dominated world and a de-industrialised way of life that is hand-made, reskilled, in tempo with the planet. This is a piece originally written in 2009 for a book about East Anglian food crops, co-produced with Josiah Meldrum (now of Hodmedod's beans, peas and quinoa) called Roots, Shoots and Seeds. This chapter centres on wheat, the dominant crop of Western civilisation, and the makers and bakers of real bread.

There are seventeen of us in a room at the Baptist church on Boltolph Steet – a farmer, a miller, several bakers, wholefood shopkeepers, members of Transition Norwich, Professor Martin Wolfe of the Organic Research Institute and Andrew Whitley of the Village Bakery and author of Bread Matters. We are meeting to discuss Resilient Bread, the project that aims to create a sustainable supply of bread for Norwich, using locally milled flour from English wheat, grown on Norfolk farms.

There is a plate being passed around and on it are not wafers but slices of real wholemeal bread, baked by a neighbourhood community store. Everyone is looking at each other as if we can’t quite believe we are all in the same room together, eating those slices and listening to these lectures about peak oil and agriculture, about the natural selection of wheat genotypes that can thrive in eco-systems undergoing climate change. It’s hard somehow to get all those graphs and words about the future to relate to the rough brown food in our mouths.

Andrew Whitley, master baker, has worked with organic flour milled in a local water mill for many years. He is a neat and compact man with a keen intensity and a round face. Whereas the other speakers stood in front of us as they spoke, he remains seated within our circle and leans forward to reveal the secrets and horrors of the industrialised bread trade. Maybe it’s because he was once in the BBC Russian service that he emanates such a conspiratorial air (he is famous in bread circles for bringing a Russian sourdough culture into Britain 19 years ago that has since spawned thousands of loaves throughout the land). It was his rediscovery of the sour dough process that eventually led to the Real Bread Campaign which he launched last year (2008).

It is half-way through his speech about the infamous Chorleywood baking process that I find myself suddenly looking at a universal truth. It’s one of those moments that opens like a door sometimes when you pay attention, notebook in hand. One minute the speaker is talking about their subject and the next they are talking about Life. Whitley was talking about time. Bread is all about time: time to mix, time to prove, time to bake. The key to real bread is in allowing enough kneading time so the gluten in the flour is activated, and enough proving time for the yeast to expand the dough to twice its size.

Gluten is a protein that when kneaded makes an elasticated web, “like a series of tiny balloons” that become filled with gas from the fermentation. Yeast is a tiny mushroom, arguably the most successful symbiont with man. It is born to ferment. It ferments our food and drink and transforms them - wine, asses milk, bread and beer. Wild yeasts appear naturally in sour dough starters (made from fermented water and flour) as well as lactic acid bacteria. Sour dough was how all bread was made until the manufacture of commercial yeast. The longer you leave these agents to do their work, the greater the nutritional quality of the bread.

Industrial baking, invented in Chorleywood in the 1960’s, has not got time to spend on the niceties of natural alchemy, on these subtle relationships between gluten and yeast and lactobacilli, and has invented deviant ways to by-pass them. Whitley is listing them: high-speed mixers, addition of hydrogenated fats and water, increased use of commercial yeast, bleach, preservatives, a cocktail of artificially-mixed enzymes, as well as countless additives and emulsifiers (the so-called flour improvers). All these deny bread its natural fermentation time. And it is this cheating of time, he argues, that leads to the malfunctions within the Western diet: all its disorders of stomach and guts, its huge ballooning of bodies.

Robbed of time industrialised bread brings disorder into the digestive system. Robbed of its rough coat of wheatgerm, the grain gives no nutrition. We keep eating but nothing satisfies our deep hunger. We pay 19p for something that should cost us £2.50. The staff of life has become an industrialised commodity without any connection with our physical beings or our intelligence. Our minds are no longer paying attention to what is on the plate but are elsewhere fixed on the cheap fast dreams of cities. On escapes and fantasies. Caught in a treadmill of hard labour, we are grabbing breakfast toast and lunchtime sandwiches, pizza, hotdog rolls, burger buns to go. We are so busy we don’t even know what we are eating.

To reverse this 50 year old habit would require a restructuring of our outside and inside lives. It’s where the grassroots movement of Transition and master bakers like Andrew Whitley meet. We meet in unlikely venues and discuss ways of bringing real food back into the hands of people and places: community baking in local hubs “where good transactions happen between people,” reskilling of home bakers and the creation of the Local Loaf (paralleling the National Loaf of the 1940’s) using local millers, bakers and shops and locally distinctive varieties of wheat.

The ingredients for real bread are simple - flour, water, salt, yeast. Bringing a resilient local loaf into Norwich is more complex. The mega-distribution system of the big three industrial bakeries have trucks perpetually on the road travelling 200 miles transporting ready-sliced to the city’s 122,000 inhabitants daily. They are roaring across East Anglia from Stevenage, London and Enfield. To feed Norwich sustainably would require 30 tonnes of wheat and several local mills. On the agenda that day in January were questions about the supply chain: quantity of flour, storage and transportation of grain, the price of a loaf, the feasibility of setting up and maintaining an electric mill in the city, the packaging and marketing of the loaves. Should the flour be stone-ground or roller-ground? Tin or round? Could Canadian wheat be used as a last straw (sic) in times of bad harvest, or grain kept back? Was the Norwich Loaf initially an everyday item or a speciality one-off?

East Anglia has arable land for growing the wheat but few working mills. The first challenge for the project is to find a mill in the city to grind the corn. The nearest wind or water mills are 25-30 miles away. The other is the quality of the wheat. The gluten content of bread is a key consideration in baking. Wheat has a very high gluten content (between 12-15 per cent) which gives the dough its extraordinary elasticity and ability to be moulded into the hundreds of shapes in which we have historically consumed it – from the heaviest of wholemeals to the airiest of croissants. Artisan bakers in England have been using commercial Canadian flour for decades because its exceptionally high gluten levels makes the light and fluffy white loaf we have got used to. The lower gluten content of our native wheat is compensated for by the Chorleywood method. The Norwich bakers’ main concern with using local flour was one of consistency (“No one is going to buy a bad bloomer”, one said rather gloomily; “You could call it ciabatta,” another quipped to much laughter) and there was a long discussion as to how we were going to get over the fact that life was unpredictable and that white and fluffy was not the future. It felt like it was going to take some time for all of us to get used to the idea.

You could tell the bakers. They had a physical presence in the room that was quite distinct from those whose business was in words and figures. They seemed familiar though I had never really considered bakers before, or even talked to one. They existed in my imagination as mythical figures with white hats and aprons. Suddenly I realised they were men who worked with their hands and worked at night. And this was why the meeting that day had begun at 2.15pm.

The Field


One of the lesser known facts about Charles Darwin is that when he bought Down House (where The Origin of Species was written) it was not for the house but for the chalk grassland that surrounded it. The species-rich habitat provided the man who was about to shake the paradigm of the Western world with the perfect opportunity to observe bio-diversity and see how its elements worked together. It was here he saw that everything in the natural world is connected and that the greater diversity that exists in a place the greater its abundance.

At the same time as the naturalist was looking at biological complexity in the field, chemists were singling out individual components in their laboratories and developing the first nitrate fertilisers that would lead to the appearance of a very different kind of grassland. And a plant that once grew wild around the Fertile Crescent began to be bred as the basis of the global diet: modern wheat.

Professor Martin Wolfe is a plant pathologist who has spent the last decade working at his organic research station outside Metfield developing what are known as Composite Cross Populations of wheat. The evolution of wheat is a complicated business and requires your absolute concentration. Where once we ate thousands of different plants, the human species mostly lives off half a dozen crops of which wheat is now the top one.

Outside the window of the Institute’s meeting room small green spikes are everywhere on trial: in a conventional agricultural field and in organic strips bordered by timber and fruit trees (a layout known as agroforestry). The Composite Cross Populations have a complex origin: three populations that come from 20 varieties and 200 intercrosses and a random male sterile genotype who acts like the joker in the pack. As a result the plants contain thousands of variations. It’s these variations that give the wheat the ability to produce consistent yield and quality of grain under a wide variety of conditions.

“Natural eco-systems are complex because they evolve that way for a damn good reason. The whole way of developing agriculture around the world depends on functional diversity. What evolutionary breeding showed was that if you dissemble the elements (in an eco-system) you find that yield increases with the positive interactions occurring. The more complex the connections, the better everything responds.”

We sit in the Institute meeting room, Mark, Josiah and I facing Martin. The biological history of cereal crops, he explains, goes in two directions: one that concentrated on a simple system using synthetic fertilisers to boost yields that led to the separation of agriculture and the natural world around 1850, and another known as evolutionary breeding that began in California in 1929 which introduced variation and worked within complexity.

His story veers from wild barley in Israel to the development of maize in Africa and traces a familiar shape: the taking of heritage seeds out of farmer’s hands and putting them into the fists of seed merchants, the manufacturers of pesticides and herbicides and finally the corporations who patent rights for certain genes and focus on their monoculture (as well as produce the agrochemicals that support the varieties that contain them).

“Oh, I’ve got a story about Monsanto,” says Mark breezily who was taking notes. I shoot him a fast look. We haven’t got time for asides, even good ones. We have another meeting to go to. Martin is an ex-professor and has that smooth ease of delivery honed from years of lecturing to Cambridge students for exactly one hour. Although there is something bristly and creaturelike about his manner I can’t quite put my finger on. It’s a creature I know, a tusky fellow, one not to be crossed.

Wolfe has no time for simplificaton and bristles academically about evolution being side-stepped by global corporations. The memory of how to thrive in different conditions – light and shade, temperatures, with plant pathogens and insects - persists in the genetic structure of naturally evolved seed. It has an inbuilt multifunctionality. But in the millions and millions of hectares of monocultural wheat these shared memories are not available.

“What happens if the weather is different from the weather it experienced during its ten years of selection? Modern wheat is bred to react maximally to input from pesticides and herbicides. But in the future the environment will be much more variable. How do we deal with that?”

Amongst the Composite Cross Populations there are answers to these questions, as well as an ability to function without agrochemicals based on fossil fuels. Because of their diversity and ability to complement and compensate for one other “there are huge amounts of variable phenomena emerging.”

As Wolfe points out: “There are lots of things breeders can’t see which are being affected by the environment.” Scientific plant breeding depends on things that can be easily measured such as height and leaf shape and so on. But the strength of living systems depends on things that cannot be seen in this way. “Inevitably the natural world is a much better selector than the trained human breeder. We have to be humble in these things.”

For 150 years however, sanctioned by the “Darwinian” assertion that nature is red in tooth and claw and inherently competitive, we have gone in the opposite direction. From Darwin we have taken the image of animals fighting for survival and justified all our aggressive acts against nature and each other. We consider evolution in terms of exotic birds far away in South America and conveniently forget his ecological analysis of the native grasslands of England that tell quite a different story. The plant world shows that nature is essentially co-operative and the success of eco-systems depends on a complex weave of relationships, as well as a long genetic memory. The simple system science behind modern agriculture, most explicitly expressed in “the crude plant technology” of GM, is one of control and domination. But this control has now, according to Wolfe, reached its ultimate, and is about to face the music in the form of climate change and peak oil.

“The question we are posing (or that is being posed for us) is how has evolution coped with a huge variety of conditions? It’s coped by lots of variation, lots of diversity, lots of different answers to potential problems.“

Maybe it’s the word population but every time Martin starts talking about the CCP that door begins to swing open again: he’s not just talking about wheat diversity, he’s talking about human diversity! We are, after all, what we eat. In a Westernised industrial world where human populations are forced to become increasingly monocultural and dependent for their survival on artificial conditions, our own evolutionary moves are now being called into play. What is happening to wheat is happening to ourselves. What would it mean for us to become composite cross?

The Bakery


We are on our way to talk with a baker in Stanton, where Josiah went to school. If Wolfe represents the biological thought at the beginning of the supply chain, the bakers represent the working craft at the end. It’s mid March, after a long and relentless winter, and there is not one cherry plum tree in blossom. The land still wears last season’s coat and the hedgerows are twiggy except for sudden bursts of golden-tasselled hazel. A low grey sky hems us in as we hurtle down the small roads that wind along the border country between Norfolk and Suffolk. It’s already bleaker here. The clay fields are giant-sized and empty, punctuated by the occasional spinney or solitary oak. Apart from the rooks, we are the only thing moving amongst the swathes of blunted green barley and darker rosettes of rape.

On the wooden shelves at the back of the Hillcrest Farm Shop in Stanton we find a quote from Felicity Lawrence’s Not On The Label on Radio 4: “Only a small number (of Britain’s independent bakers) genuinely bake from scratch, many depend instead on factory ‘premixes’. Today there are only 3,500 individual craft bakers in the UK, compared to about 35,000 in France . . .” In between crusty white and crunchy granary loaves, a round face is beaming at me from the kitchen.

The smile belongs to Mick the Baker who has been baking from scratch for 37 years. “You can talk to me as I’m working,” he says. It’s probably the only time we can talk to Mick as he is definitely a man on the go. As he works ten pans of dough into hundreds of hot cross buns, he gives us a run down on his working schedule, baking, singing with a band at the weekends and driving long-distance trucks. Most of his days start at 4.30am, Saturday begins at 1.30am. Do you ever get time to sleep? I ask. “I don’t get a lot,” he says, “I used to survive on three hours. The only way is to keep going and not sit down. The trouble is I’m fifty now. The mind says you can but the body says maybe not.”

We’ve come to talk with Mick because he has just started baking with locally grown and milled flour. He bakes “the old-fashioned way” entirely by hand (except for the mixing), uses natural ingredients and is one of only nine traditional British bakers left in the Waveney Valley. “I’ve always done it natural. Slow mix, slow dough. Throw it in and hope for the best. I’ve got it right for the bread, I’m not sure for the rest of the life!”

Mick is “an old East End boy” who began his apprenticeship at 15 and came to East Anglia in 1991 to run the Swan Bakery in the neighbouring village of Garboldisham. He chose baking because he was waiting until he was 21 to follow his dream of being a long-distance lorry driver.

“I’m more into quality than money. I’m not motivated by money, I’m motivated by music.”

Mick is a motivated man. As he whirls his two hands around 360 buns he talks non-stop about bread, about bread making machines, about his old-style baking equipment and the necessity of hot ovens, the time John Peel almost came to interview him but then he died, how sweeping up is the most important part of the job, how he likes to barter, swapping bread for customer’s eggs, surprising children with a box of cakes when they hand him a picture, how he holds the peace between the scrapping artistes in his band (“I’m in the middle of it,” he laughs) and sings almost everything – jazz, blues, funk, soul - just not country (even though he is a trucker), how he hasn’t got time to teach, has never read a book in his life and the reason he likes baking is because it’s creative: he creates everything from start to finish.

“I use Canadian flour which isn’t very patriotic but it makes the best bread. The organic English one comes up quite small and heavy but that suits some customers. I don’t mess around with fancy stuff. Mine’s the proper old English bread. People like a bit of crust.”

Like most hands-on craftsmen he learned everything by watching people. “If anyone asks me anything technical, I can’t tell them. I know what happens if you leave yeast out but I couldn’t tell you why. I know when the salt is left out because the dough moves quicker. In the summer it’s a nightmare in here because the bread keeps moving and you can’t stop.”

We stand in the tiny back kitchen, peering at Mick busily not stopping with the currant-spotted dough, occasionally swerving out of the way as he whisks a tray into the fridge or freezer. I want to ask him when do you have time for life? And then as I listen to him, hands spinning, talking about gigs and whacking everything in the bowl, knocking it on the table, whacking it back in the prover, I realise this is Life, this whirl of activity, creating, producing, bartering, sweeping up. On the wall there is a photograph of Mick singing with a hat on (“I always wear a hat”), a smiley T- shirt and rainbow trousers. He’s carrying a giant sunflower in one hand.

Mick tells us a story about working through the night. At the Swan Bakery he had a chill-out room and at night people used to drop by: policemen came for a quick kip, firemen on call, young boys without anything much to do. One night a couple came on their way from the Glastonbury Festival lured by the lights of the chill-out room. “They said they could not believe it.” You could imagine it then, stoned out of your head in the small hours, finding a light burning on a dark road, and a man working in the kitchen mixing yeast, flour, water and salt, cooking up the kind of bread you might like to eat. What did they see when the door swung open?

“It’s time to decompress,” said Josiah as we reeled out of the shop. We chewed our buns as we walked about the garden centre. Everything after the intensity of the kitchen didn’t seem quite real: the stiff and clipped box trees, the flashy petunias in their pots, silently waiting under a grey and cold sky. “What’s the story?” he asked, as we climbed back into the small car. We had come out on an adventure the three of us for the day. I don’t know what we had expected from either the scientist or the baker. We all felt rather dazed.

“I don’t know yet,” I said. I was thinking about what I had first seen, as I glimpsed Mick’s round face between the shelves of bread. It was like the sun was smiling at me.

When I came to the story I realised that we live in a culture that keeps everything separate and that when you start to assemble the components back together again, it requires a way of thinking about life and engaging in it that is not just a matter of graphs and statistics. The bakers and millers and shopkeepers once appeared in our imaginations as part of life. These people operated in the fabric of our daily lives: they lived in songs and in fairy tales, as characters in children’s picture books and playing cards. They were apparent and lived in the brightness of day.

The processes of industry and science and agriculture are hidden. They recognise no people, only machines and numbers. They operate secretly in the dark and rely on our not joining up the dots and connecting the facts. Even when investigated by determined journalists like Lawrence, knowing facts about the global food industry does not actually shift our ways of thinking about them.

What shifts our awareness are the door-opening moments, when those connections start cross-referencing and self-organising inside you - those revelations about time, about Life. Suddenly you get the whole picture. You know that when the time is out of whack, everything else goes out of whack. How when you side-step evolution there is a price to pay. And that’s the moment you start asking yourself who exactly is paying.

At this point, I don’t know which way the story is going. It’s still fermenting: the faces of the three men appear before me and need time to reassemble themselves into a coherent shape. What I do know is that when you look at wheat, you find yourself looking at civilisation. The ability to domesticate wild grasses and feed thousands of people happened at the same time in different continents – rice in Asia, millet in Africa, maize in the Americas. Wheat, with barley and rye, was the main cereal crop of the Middle East and clearly marks the shift from the nomadic and hunter-gatherer world, to the city-ruled agricultural world of conquered and indentured populations. When you look at wheat you look at bread, and when you look at bread you’re looking at people. You’re looking at a certain kind of people eating for a certain kind of reason.

It’s not sacred anymore in the way we understand sacred - our daily bread - but it serves the same function. Modern factory bread is cheap and in a world that prizes convenience and availability and money most of all, the cheapness of bread means it is highly prized. For one section of the population of course. For cheap food is and always has been, since the city-states established themselves 5000 years ago, the fuel of the workforce. Though civilisations prize themselves on their architecture and technology and their high-flown ideals, all of them depend on a huge and expendable underclass. The daily bread that was apportioned to the city slaves in Rome is as vital to them as the ready-sliced bought by the urban poor of the global metropolis. And the contempt the modern ruling classes have towards the masses who eat junk bread is in proportion to their great and ancient fear that they will one day rise up and demand not wholemeal loaves, nor even croissants, but equity.

Sometimes I think that my intolerance to wheat, to gluten and yeast, is a symptom of my own revolt against the prevailing order. I used to think it was an expression of the imbalance between settled agriculture and the wild places of this earth – a shout of solidarity for all those medicine flowers and prairie grasses, sometimes as tall as a man, mown down and replaced by the millions and millions of hectares of identical corn. Our minds may acquiesce to industrialisation, to the maltreatment of nature, but our archaic hunter-gatherer bodies do not. They close down, blow up and start minor revolutions. But now I realise the body doesn’t just revolt in sympathy with the earth, but also with its own kind.

There are millions of people who are allergic to wheat. Some so allergic (the so-called coeliacs) they cannot consume one tiny speck of flour. It’s a phenomen that came with the industrialisation of cereals, particularly in the last 20 years. There is no medical cure for what happens to the intolerant body. Gluten is seen as a foreign invader by the immune system and it attacks the delicate lining of the intestine that normally takes in the goodness of food. As a result the micronutrients - the essential minerals and vitamins - are not absorbed by the blood. Without these vital ingredients we grow weak and tired and depressed, rashes appear on our knees and ulcers in our mouths. We sweat, feel poisoned and our bowels collapse. White bread, the symbol of oppression of the dominant Western world in many cultures, is often blamed as a cause of malnutrition amongst the poor and indigenous. But gluten intolerance is widespread amongst everyone in a wheat-consuming world. Between 1 in one hundred or 1 in 600 of people in the UK, depending which report you read. Allergies don’t just happen to the masses.

It’s difficult to look at food allergies like this. We want there to be scientific solutions, fixes and formulas. We want to be separate and blameless and live our lives in discrete units, as if our physical reactions bear no relation to the way we treat the earth or the culture we uphold. We want to cheat time and cheat each other and think we can get away with things forever.

But we can’t.

The Bowl


It’s a bowl my sister gave me years ago and has, for as long as I can remember, sat quietly in the corner or in front of fireplaces in houses I have lived in. It sat on the long table in my London flat for years. When I went travelling it was one of the only things I kept during a decade of perpetual moving and shifting. I just liked it for its great and useful form - a large deep pottery bowl, terracotta on the outside, creamy yellow on the inside with a hand-drawn ox-blood-coloured rim. I cooked up a lot of dishes in that London flat with its long table, and in all the places where I went travelling. Except bread. Bread was not my style: it felt way too domestic and slow.

But last Sunday I made my first loaf in the pottery bowl, and found out what it was really called: a panchion. My fellow first-time breadmaker took a snap of me holding it at my hip to send to her mother. “She used to use one,” she said.

It wasn’t a grand production, just a regular soda bread made with local spelt and rye. We were a small group of people in a neighbourhood restaurant, taking part in a bread making club that meets the last Sunday of every month. What was surprising was that when my hands went deep into the sides of the panchion, they knew what to do without any instruction. Push, pull, knead.

It was not like making pastry or anything else I’ve mixed in a bowl because the soda had activated the dough. You could feel the stuff living in your hands. Recorded somewhere deep in the bone-memory of those hands, in that bowl, in the spelt and rye, was the knowledge of people working with the staff of life for thousands of years. Knead, push, pull.

After kneading we waited. We had some tea and talked to each other. Then we put the round shapes into the oven. When we pulled our tins out forty minutes later, my two loaves were perfect. How did that happen? They were cracked in a cross shape - the distinguishing mark of soda bread - dusted with flour, chunky, sweet smelling. When I got home I went round and gave the spare loaf to my neighbour and the other I put in the centre of the table. I looked at that bread for a long time. And then I cut a thick slice and ate it the way I remember we used to in Ireland, with butter and hot tea. I did not get sick.


It’s something about craftsmen, about creators, that I’ve noticed. It’s not money that motivates them, or a machine that makes demands on their time. It’s something else. Wolfe remembers the strains of wild barley he saw once either side of a rock in a Middle Eastern field: short on the shadowy side of the rock and tall on the sunny side: beautiful! he declares and his face lights up (finally I recognise the creature, it’s a wild boar). Now I’m looking at those tough spikes of green outside his window in a different way, imagining how they can in a matter of months turn into pale golden fields of edible wheat on stalks of differing heights.

Mick is telling us he makes real English bread, that people like a bit of crust. Now I’m looking at his shiny loaves stacked on the shelf. How come I never noticed that English bread was crusty before, that it is square? I ate bread for years. I’ve gazed out across arable fields for years. How come I never examined those hairy ears of wheat closely, the stiffness of their forms? I could have missed everything, skimming on the top of what I saw or thought, and never delving deep into the place where time lives, where the cross currents of our lives make sense of everything, where what happens behind the scenes before dawn is everything that happens after sunrise.

What did these three men have in common that made me look at life with another eye? I realised it was a relationship with the material: the desire to shape the stuff of life with your own hands. If you talk to a man about his passion for making hats or chairs, or turning a bowl from a piece of old railway track or a cherry tree that has blown over, or to a man who knows how to turn the earth so that beans or roses will spring from it, or how to make a necklace of out of seaglass that reflects light all about your throat you will find a man with a deep satisfaction inside him. I’ve spent some of my life talking to such men, without knowing why there is a strong curent that flows between us. And now I see it’s because we have something in common: their eye is on matter in the same way my eye is on the blank page. The possibility is that what manifests could go one way or another and your interaction in the matter is everything. It’s the kind of relationship you never tire of.

To be in life requires your utter engagement. Industrialisation switches us off. It’s only interested in people working like machines To put yourself in the centre of things is the position in which time starts making sense, whether you are a biologist, a baker, a writer or a musician. You are working with the substance of life. In those spaces created by the synthesis of gluten and yeast and bacteria, nourishment is forged from the seeds of the wheat grass. In the spaces created within the matter, the craftsmen glimpse a possibility of eternity. It’s a mysterious process that even deeply practical bakers like Whitley acknowledge. It’s being fully engaged in this daily alchemy that gives us the real rewards of life, that mere possession of things, or endless hours of leisure never can.

The industrial machine produces from life what can be bought and sold, demanding endless energy and life-force. It makes slaves of people and gives us money and entertainment and cheap goods in return. But you never get to engage with the fabric of life that way - with plants or bread or words - or find any kind of satisfaction. The craftsman is using his hands to making life beautiful, useful, delicious: he is putting his attention and his skill into those loaves and those loaves are coming up good. No one gets sick afterwards.

To find satisfaction you have to have an encounter with the real world and absorb its great subtleties. It’s difficult to make the deep connections about food without meeting the people that grow the plants or bake the bread, or doing those things yourself. You have to stand in the intensity of the kitchen and in the emptiness of the land. And then you have to go home and let those ingredients shift and move and expand together. Real bread takes time. Real stories take time. How many stories can you make with 26 letters? How many songs can you sing with 12 notes? How many solutions can you come up with with 17 people in a room? How many things can you make out of flour and water that are not the monocultural white sliced loaf?

The loaves of the old world are stored inside me: cottage white, granary brown, bap, bagel, pitta, naan, focaccia, ciabatta, pumpernickel, brioche. A man with a black face is gulping water from a bucket like a horse, his warm bread stacked on a rough shelf set in the side of a Greek mountain. I am standing by the door, a dish of Easter kid at my hip, about to put the dish inside his oven stoked with thornbushes. An old man takes my hand in a French patisserie in Queensway and puts a sweet roll in it. His name is Monsieur Pechon. He is eighty years old and blind. I am four years old and wearing a coat the colour of the sun. Each morning he waits by the door for us, les petits, to come and hold his bread baking hands. It’s a long time ago. It’s a long long way away from where we are now.

I am wondering as I write this story about wheat, whether we will make it back in time.

          Microsoft - Nokia deal: A paradigm shift in the standard essential patent licensing business model        

This post discusses the recent divestment of Nokia's businesses to Microsoft and argues that this deal may change the way entities deal with standard essential patent (SEP) licensing on Fair, Reasonable, and Non-Discriminatory (FRAND) terms - and hence is a paradigm shift in the mobile phone industry.  Because of the obligation to a Standard Setting Organization (SSO), and because Microsoft has taken the position (Microsoft v. Motorola) that the SEP licensing be based on chipset value rather than end-product value, Nokia may be stuck with licensing SEP portfolio on a chipset basis. Current practice is to license the portfolio on an end-product (a handset, or a complete device).

Early Tuesday morning (03/09, India time), twitter was ablaze with the news that Microsoft would acquire the handset and services business of Nokia for about $7 Billion.  Notable is the fact that Nokia only divested it's businesses and transferred it's employees to Microsoft, but retained its patent portfolio.  Nokia in it's press release announced: As part of the transaction, Nokia will grant Microsoft a 10 year non-exclusive license to its patents as of the time of the closing..In addition, Nokia will grant Microsoft an option to extend this mutual patent agreement to perpetuity.  Of the total purchase price EUR 1.65 billion relates to the mutual patent agreement and future option. 

The retention of the patent portfolio raises significant issues: Microsoft is a mere non-exclusive licensee, and Nokia is free to license to others.  By divesting the hardware and transferring people, Nokia cannot be sued for products, yet can launch patent licensing and related actions including litigation.  In the SEP licensing field - this model is much closer to that of InterDigital, and Ericsson: both used to make handsets / devices, but shifted to a pure licensing model.

Since the deal was announced, one area that has received little attention is the future course of action vis-a-vis the licensing of the SEPs and what what end of the supply chain a patent holder should license the SEPs. In Microsoft v. Motorola case (underway at the Western District of Washington, Seattle), Microsoft made an argument that Motorola breached its [F]RAND obligations by failing to offer a [F]RAND license to Microsoft’s 802.11 chipset supplier, Marvell.  

In another instance of the same argument (chipset manufacturer), Intel in it's amicus brief supporting Apple involving a dispute between Apple and Motorola, argued that a FRAND commitment requires a SEP holder to license all comers, including component makers (or chipset makers). 

This obligation-offering a license to all prospective licensees, including chipset manufacturers stems from the IPR policy of the standard setting organization.  Under the terms on which a SEP holder (such as Nokia) signs the obligation to declare SEPs to an SSO such as ETSI, the SEP holder must grant a reasonable license to all comers—both sellers of completed products to consumers, such as handset manufacturers, and manufacturers of the components that go into those products. 

Clause § 6.1 (ETSI IPR Policy), requires owners of essential IPR to undertake to grant licenses “to at least” “MANUFACTURE”; “sell, lease, or otherwise dispose of EQUIPMENT so MANUFACTURED”; “use” “EQUIPMENT”; “and” “use METHODS.” 

Hence, it can be argued that a chipset manufacturer is entitled to a FRAND license from the SEP holder. Microsoft arguing that the license should be made applicable to Marvell,  the chipset manufacturer, and Intel (Intel supplies chipsets to integrated device manufacturers / mobile handset manufacturers) arguing that component manufacturers be licensed by a SEP holder further underscore the point.

Accordingly, even though Nokia has retained ownership of the patent portfolio, and Microsoft is a non-exclusive licensee of the Nokia's portfolio, Nokia may have to be content with the valuation of an SEP license on a chipset basis.  Additionally, as Nokia is one of the largest (if not the largest) holders of SEPs, others may have to follow suit in SEP portfolio licensing.

Pacific Crest is urging investors to refrain from buying more Apple stock insisting that the money could be better spent backing one of the company’s biggest rivals in the tech industry: Alphabet (Google).
(See also: Will Alphabet overtake Apple as No.1?)

In a note, which was published on Sunday and reported on by CNBC, Andy Hargreaves, an analyst at investment banking firm Pacific Crest, downgraded Apple’s shares to sector weight from overweight, based on his concerns that the soon-to-be released iPhone 8 might not live up to the lofty expectations of the Cupertino, Calif.-based company.

Hargreaves claims that Apple hasn’t factored in a number of risks linked to its latest smartphone model, prompting him to cut the company’s earnings forecasts for this fiscal year and predict that the high-flying stock could fall $10 to $145 a share over the next 12 months. (See also: Apple's $1,000 iPhone 8 Seen Fueling Stock Price.)

"We believe AAPL anticipates strong performance in the iPhone 8 cycle, while providing relatively little weight to risks through the cycle or the potential for iPhone sales to decline in FY?19," he wrote in the note.

Aside from questioning whether the iPhone 8 can match Apple’s high sales projections, Hargreaves also argues that supply chain constraints could eat into its gross margins — and even result in a costly delay to the phone’s launch date. iPhone profit margins have reportedly been in decline over the past five years, due to the rising costs of making these increasingly sophisticated handsets.

"Recent supply checks suggest iPhone 8 (OLED) may be delayed until October, with limited initial supply that ramps through F1Q,” Hargreaves added. “Consequently, we are shifting iPhone units out of FY17 into FY18, which, along with an increase to our iPhone 8 ASP estimate, drives our FY17 EPS estimate down to $8.86 and our FY18 EPS estimate up to $10.53."

Pacific Crest is the fifth brokerage firm to give Apple’s stock a hold rating. According to Zacks, most analysts – 17 in total – rate the shares a “strong buy”. A further six have the shares on a “buy”, while two rate the shares a “strong sell”. (See also: iPhone 8 Supercycle Will Release Pent-Up Demand: Credit Suisse.)

China mkt: Local vendors ramp up smartphone shipments at the expense of iPhone in 1Q17

Claire Sung, Taipei; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Friday 5 May 2017]

Apple suffered a serious setback in shipments of iPhone devices in the China market in the first quarter of 2017 as China-based brands including Huawei, Oppo and Vivo managed to continue ramping up their shipments, according to data released by IDC.

Apple saw its iPhone shipments in China slide 26.7% on year to 9.6 million units in the first quarter, accounting for a 9.2% share compared to 11% of a quarter earlier and 12.7% of a year earlier, the data showed.

Echoing the data, Apple revenues generated from the China market declined 12% on year to US$16.2 billion in the January-March period, according to Apple's latest financial report.

However, Huawei managed to ramp up its shipments by 25.5% on year to 20.8 million units in the first quarter and reclaimed the top-vendor position from the local rival Oppo. Huawei also saw its share climb to 20% in the quarter, up from 16.8% a quarter earlier and 16% a year earlier, IDC said.

Oppo ranked second with shipments totaling 18.9 million units for an 18.2% share, while Vivo shipped 14.6 million and took third position with a 14.1% share.

Huawei has established more than 1,000 experience shops in core cities in China recently to counter the established channels set up by Oppo and Vivo, according to sources from Taiwan's handset supply chain. Huawei also aims to set up over 15,000 retail shops globally, the sources added.

Oppo currently has a total of over 200,000 online and offline sales outlets in China, while Vivo has 250,000 offline sales outlets, indicated the sources.

Overall, 104.1 million smartphones were shipped to the China market in the first quarter of 2017, representing a mere 1% on-year growth, IDC said.

          Featured Ethics [and Sustainability] Scholar for January: Tensie Whelan        

Interview with Tensie Whelan, Clinical Professor and Director of the Center for Sustainable Business at NYU Stern

 

What are your main areas of research/work? 

The mission of the Center for Sustainable Business is to ensure current and future business leaders develop the knowledge and skills to address environmental and social challenges, so their business can reduce risk; develop innovative services, products, and processes; and create competitive advantage; while building value for society and protecting the planet.

We offer undergrad, graduate and executive courses as well as internships and student consulting projects and host a series of panels and C-Suite talks on sustainability.  We also have an ambitious research agenda aimed at tackling the barriers to more sustainable (and ethical) corporate behavior.

 

Why was now the right time to launch the Center for Sustainable Business here at Stern? Why was Stern the right home for this important center? 

Business manages the majority of the resources on the planet.  In the US, for example, business is responsible for $18 trillion of GDP and government and civil society $3 trillion. If we wish to solve the environmental and social challenges before us, we need business to play a leadership role. Stern, with its location in the world’s financial center, and its award-winning faculty and students who are focused on finance, can play a unique role in addressing the structural problems of shareholder capitalism and the Center for Sustainable Business can assist the transition to a capitalism better suited to the needs of the 21st century.

The moment is right because a growing number of business leaders such as Paul Polman at Unilever, John Mackey at Whole Foods and Larry Fink at BlackRock are questioning the benefits of short-termism and are turning to their broader purpose in society.  These business leaders need research, networks and employees who can help them on this journey and CSB can be a key partner.

 

How does your work on sustainability help companies that want to improve themselves as ethical systems? Where is the intersection between these areas?

Given the social and environmental challenges we face, we believe the 21st century corporation must embed sustainability in its core business strategy, create value for key stakeholders and society, and help to solve the challenges we have before us. We believe that this approach is both intrinsically ethical and drives more ethical behavior.

For example, a company that aims to create products and services that help meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals will be modeling positive ethical behavior for its employees while at the same time potentially developing a new market opportunity.  A company that sees employees as just as important as shareholders will invest in their well-being and be more ethical in their treatment.

We also have seen that shareholder capitalism, with its focus on quarterly results and tying executive compensation to those results, can drive unsustainable and unethical behavior.  The recent scandals in the automotive sector, the pharmaceutical sector, the financial sector all share  a common thread:  Employees were incentivized to prioritize short-term financial results over the interests of their clients, the environment, and the law.

 

If you could only highlight one paper or research finding (or piece of work that you’ve been involved with) that relates to designing sustainable business and the value therein, what would it be and why? 

I recently published a paper in Harvard Business Review, “The Comprehensive Business Case for Sustainability,” which tackles the still pervasive myth that corporate leaders can either be sustainable or profitable but not both.  There is a wealth of research today demonstrating a compelling link between embedded sustainability and drivers of positive financial performance.

Our research shows sustainable practices reduce risk, improve operational efficiency, employee productivity and engagement and improve customer loyalty. This results in improved financial performance.  A study by the University of Oxford and Arabesque, for example, reviewed the academic literature on sustainability and corporate performance and found that 90% of 200 studies analyzed conclude that good ESG standards lower the cost of capital; 88% show that good ESG practices result in better operational performance; and 80% show that stock price performance is positively correlated with good sustainability practices.

 

Tell us about one of your current or future projects.

In CSB’s experience, there are a number of positive financial benefits of adopting sustainability into supply chain management, ranging from improved supplier stability and quality to reduced costs and increased sales, and reduced operational and reputational risk in the short and long term.  However, there is currently no comprehensive methodology for monetizing the changes made. CSB proposes to address this gap, starting first with analyzing the financial implications of the potential and existing changes to the beef supply chain in Brazil to make it deforestation-free and developing a methodology for monetizing deforestation-free commitments in the supply chain that can be adopted and tested in other industries. McDonalds, which has made deforestation-free supply chain commitments, is a partner in the project. 

 

If you could give one piece of business ethics-related advice (or something related to sustainability and the bottom line) to companies, what would it be?

Embrace stakeholder value generation rather than (solely) shareholder value generation and you will make decisions that are good for society, your employees and your company.  Our research is showing that creating value for employees, suppliers, customers, shareholders and the planet is good business and more likely to create profits over the longer term.  Don’t fall into the short-term shareholder value creation trap!

 

If you could give one piece of business ethics--related / sustainability-centric advice to individuals, what would it be?

Work at a company that aligns with your values. If you work at a company that values short-term financial growth to the exclusion of all else, you will most likely find yourself making dubious decisions and over time shifting away from your basic ethics as the “this is the way we do business” mantra takes hold.   You do not have to work in a social enterprise to be ethical, but look for companies that have a deeply embedded purpose beyond making money and look for ways to contribute and strengthen that purpose.

          Palm Oil Mill Data: A Step Towards Transparency        

Palm Oil Mill Data: A Step Towards Transparency

Palm oil production, a major driver of deforestation in the humid tropics, especially in Indonesia and Malaysia, poses potential reputational risks to companies associated with it. Recognizing these risks, a growing number of firms have announced ambitious commitments to reduce or even completely remove deforestation from their supply chains. The zero-deforestation pledges of more than 50 companies leave the world awaiting the translation of commitments to change.

One of the big challenges facing corporations in is tracing palm oil through large and complex supply chains to commercial product. By locating areas of production, companies can identify deforestation risk throughout their supply chains and then engage suppliers and monitor behavior to make progress. But for most companies, tracking palm oil to the farm where it’s grown is difficult, costly and time-consuming. An increasing number of processors, traders, and buyers have, however, begun taking the important interim step of tracing their supply chains to the mill level.

A new data set launched on Global Forest Watch Commodities helps to globally map palm oil supply chains by showing the locations of almost 800 mills. Created by World Resources Institute, the traceability platform KnownSources, from FoodReg and several processors, traders, and buyers, the mill data provides a clearest picture of palm oil production publicly available. It creates new opportunities to analyze production areas and mills on a global scale, as well as to focus attention on new areas where palm oil production is having an impact on forests.

Changing the Game for Deforestation Analyses

Mill locations can indicate where palm fruit is processed as well as where palm plantations are located. Because it is highly perishable, fresh palm fruit must be processed within 24 hours of harvest, limiting plantation sourcing to an approximate 30-mile (50 km) radius around the mill, according to company estimates (though this may vary depending on available infrastructure, such as road density and quality). This means analyzing the area immediately surrounding a mill can reveal useful information about plantations that fall within its sourcing area. When used with other data layers on the Global Forest Watch Commodities platform, the new mill data set can help companies identify mills in environmentally sensitive areas.

Figure 1. A mill’s sourcing radius (outlined by the red circle) contains oil palm concessions and overlaps both intact and degraded primary forest.

Figure 2. A mill’s sourcing area overlaps Taman Negara National Park, Malaysia (included in the World Database on Protected Areas).

Mill Distribution

This unprecedented data set consists of 782 palm oil mills, spread across 15 countries. As anticipated, the vast majority of these mills are found in Malaysia (50 percent) and Indonesia (44 percent). Production outside of the Southeast Asia region now accounts for 6 percent of the global market, as detected by WRI’s new data set, in countries as diverse as Ecuador, Colombia, Ghana and Sudan. Of these, Colombia possesses the most mills with just under 2 percent, or 15 mills, surpassing the Asian palm oil producing countries like Thailand and India.

Within Indonesia, palm oil mills are largely concentrated in a few provinces. Nearly 13 percent of all mills included in the data are in the Riau province of Sumatra, Indonesia, which is also a hotspot for recent fires that caused severe haze and alarming air quality.

Figure 3. Distribution of mills.

Implications for the Future

The new data represents the most comprehensive set of palm oil mills assembled to date. However, the total number of palm oil mills in the world is unknown and the data set, although large, only represents the mills within the supply chains of a handful of traders and buyers. It is difficult to determine what portion of total mills is captured in the data, but it is certainly a significant improvement in transparency and traceability for the palm oil industry. Continuing contributions will add to this data set as more companies realize the importance of traceability and good stewardship in a globally competitive market.

Apalagi bagi kawan-kawan mahasiswa yang masih blank belum kepikiran untuk mengambil skripsi wkwkwkwk… Bagi yang sering mondar-mandir ke perpustakaan kampus sih kadang agak terbuka wawasannya dengan melihat-lihat judul skripsi para kakak kelas. Paling tidak jika bagi mahasiswa yang belum waktunya untuk mengambil skripsi maka sebaiknya sudah punya ancang-ancang judul skripsi apakah yang akan digunakan nanti. Berikut ini ada beberapa judul-judul skripsi jurusan Teknik Informatika, Manajemen Informatika, Sistem Informasi dll yang bisa kawan-kawan jadikan sebagai acuan untuk menentukan judul skripsi/tugas akhir nanti. Hehehehe… siapa tau dari sekian banyak judul skripsi ini ada yang bisa dijadikan inspirasi untuk judul skripsi kalian.

          THE Summit Sees Experts Tackle Digital Supply Chain        
BY Jeff Hyatt June 10, 2016 There are plenty of highlights on the agenda for the June 14 Transforming Home Entertainment Continue reading
          Trade Costs and Development: A New Data Set         
The World Bank and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) jointly prepared a new global data set of bilateral trade costs based on trade and production data. Accessible on the World Bank Open Data Web site, it opens new analytical possibilities for policy makers and researchers working on trade integration. The data stress the importance of supply chains and connectivity constraints in explaining the higher costs and lower levels of trade integration observed in developing countries.
          Collaborative Border Management, A New Approach to an Old Problem         
Border clearance processes are among the most problematic links in the global supply chain and frequently undermine national competitiveness by increasing the cost of exports and reducing reliability of supply. As a result, securing meaningful reform of border management procedures has become an important issue for the development community. However, it remains an area where little effective guidance is available to reformers and development professionals. A recent publication released by the International Trade Department of the World Bank was developed in response to this need. The Border Management Modernization Handbook outlines a new and more comprehensive reform and modernization agenda based on the concept of collaborative border management. The CBM concept shifts the focus beyond the traditional customs specific trade facilitation agenda to a new and more comprehensive whole of government approach to reform that relies less on institution specific reform and more on a wider trade supply chain focused approach designed to tackle the major barriers traders face when navigating the frequently complex and opaque regulatory requirements that governments impose on international trade.
          Taking Stock of Trade Protectionism Since 2008         
Following the onset of the financial crisis in September 2008 and the subsequent Great Trade Collapse, many countries actively used trade policy instruments as part of their response to the global recession. Governments pursued a mix of trade liberalization, trade promotion, and trade restrictions. The choice of trade policy has varied, with limited use of tariff hikes or antidumping and safeguard actions. Sector specific support to industries dominated initial responses to the crisis, and there has been increasing resort to nontariff measures. Recent research suggests that vertical specialization, the growth in global supply chains, has played a significant role in limiting the use of traditional protectionist instruments. Pressures on governments to support domestic economic activity may increase, given current gloomy economic prospects and more binding macroeconomic policy constraints, and the number of protectionist measures has recently risen. Open trade cannot be taken for granted, thus the need for monitoring persists.
          Sophistication in Service Exports and Economic Growth         
Services can now be stored and traded digitally, and they are not subject to many of the trade barriers that physical exports have to overcome. Services are no longer exclusively an input for trade in goods, but have become a final export for direct consumption. It is important to note that services not only have become more tradable, but also can be increasingly unbundled. A single service activity in the global supply chain can now be fragmented and done separately at different geographic locations. This has led to a new channel of growth, what we call service export sophistication.

          Who made my clothes?        

Fashion Revolution is a global campaign that aims to raise awareness for ethical and responsible clothing and fashion making. As we know, fast fashion workers on under developed countries are being badly paid in order to make clothing we wear everyday. A community of designers, business leaders, activists, and teachers is building this gathering platform to discuss these fashion issues, make a change in the world and have a real impact in our society too: “Fashion Revolution is a global movement in 71 countries. We have created a worldwide platform which we can all use to ask questions, raise standards and set an industry-wide example of what better looks like.

We don’t know the true cost of the things we buy. The fashion industry supply chain is fractured and producers have become faceless. This is costing lives. All over the world, people are suffering and our environment is at risk as a result of our fashion supply chain. On Fashion Revolution Day, 24 April, brands and retailers will be challenged to take responsibility for the individuals and communities on which their business depends.

By taking an selfie with the label showing (wear an item of clothing insideout for added impact) posting it on social media and asking the brand Who Made My Clothes? you can show support for greater transparency throughout the fashion supply chain. The more people who ask #whomademyclothes, the more brands will listen.”

All products in Dialetu’s selection are made in those standards. Join the Fashion Revolution with us. Buy with care! #FashRev

          IWLA Slates Two C-TPAT Programs For September in Dallas and Chicago        
July 21, 2010 (DES PLAINES, IL) – The International Warehouse Logistics Association will hold two educational programs this September in Dallas and Chicago on how third-party logistics providers can implement the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT).

Titled "C-TPAT Implementation for Third-Party Logistics Providers: A Primer," will provide attendees with the knowledge they need to land and manage business that requires expertise in handling international goods. The program will prepare third-party logistics providers for enrollment in C-TPAT, teach how to maintain best practices across their supply chains, and to prepare for U.S. Custom and Border Protection (CBP) validation at both domestic and non-domestic facilities.

Attendees will receive an electronic handout detailing the CBP C-TPAT program and all supporting CBP documentation related to eligibility and program enrollment. In addition, a Best Practices Manual and a Risk Assessment Scoring Matrix that can be used to document security across the entire supply chain will be provided.

The program agenda includes a C-TPAT overview and background information, including review of the different enrollment categories; 3PL provider definition and eligibility requirements, including how to manage cargo in the international supply chain; the steps to take for enrollment into C-TPAT; validation procedures and how to prepare for validation; and how to make the most effective use of the Best Practices Handbook.

Program leaders are Curtis D. Spencer, President, and Steve Schellenberg, Vice President of Business Development, for IMS Worldwide, Houston. Mr. Spencer is a nationally-recognized expert on logistics and intermodal shipping trends, ports, inland ports and rail-served logistics centers; foreign-trade zones; and all aspects of CBP issues and compliance. He served for four years on the Advisory Committee on Customs Operations authorized by Congress.

With a 20-year career in supply chain management, Mr. Schellenberg’s experience includes managing all aspects of automotive supply chains, global distribution and third-party logistics. He has extensive experience in the North America Free Trade Agreement trading regions and has managed air cargo, freight forwarding, ocean and truck transportation, and air charter operations.

The first program will be held on September 8, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the Westin Park Central Hotel in Dallas, immediately prior to the Texas Warehouse Association annual meeting. The cost is $275 for members of IWLA and TWA, and $375 for non-members.

The second program will be held September 23, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the Hyatt Rosemont Hotel near Chicago O’Hare International Airport. The cost is $375 for IWLA members and $475 for non-members, and includes lunch.

For additional details about the course program hotel room rates and how to register, visit the IWLA website at: http://www.iwla.com/events/CalDetails.aspx?id=279

          IWLA Sales & Marketing Workshop Shows How Your Entire Organization Can Be a Profit-Generating Dynamo        
June 7, 2010 (DES PLAINES, IL) – The International Warehouse Logistics Association’s 2010 Sales & Marketing Workshop will teach you how to turn everyone in your organization into members of a team that helps differentiate your firm from competitors through development of excellence in sales and service.

As a commercial warehouse and third-party logistics provider – or as a supplier servicing to the logistics industry – the last thing you want is for your prospective customers to think of your service offerings as commodities. To avoid this fate, you need to differentiate your services in the market from your competitors, and that starts with strategic approach to sales.

Who actually generates more growth for your company – the CEO, the sales team, the operations team or the customer? The answer is that all of them do. The IWLA annual Sales & Marketing Workshop will focus on the fundamentals of developing the strategic planning and selling skills of all the key business leaders in your company.

Among the topics covered will be the key strategic questions every organization, division or business unit must answer and finishes with practical tactics to execute a successful business building strategy. You will learn how to teach employees throughout your operation the five crucial steps to successful selling – whether they are selling an idea, a service or themselves.

“Successful sellers inspire trust and confidence in the customers with whom they interact, and by extension, in their organization,” said IWLA President Joel Anderson. “People who continually create positive experiences for their customers are powerful generators of new business and barriers to attrition. Leaders and managers in sales, operations, and the executive suite will leave the workshop with a framework to create the organizational DNA for a customer-focused, growth-minded business.”

The workshop leaders are consultants Verinder Syal and Nancy Olive, principals with Chicago-based Syal Consult, who have actual experience running companies and delivering results in Blue Chip companies such as Procter & Gamble, Frito-Lay and Quaker Oats, as well as in start-ups, LBOs and turnarounds. This includes extensive experience in the third-party logistics market.

Among the guest speakers will be Susan Promane, Supply Chain Director of Whirlpool Canada, who offers the perspective of someone who has worked both sides of the fence as a 3PL sales and customer service International Warehouse Logistics Association 2800 River Road, Suite 260 • Des Plaines, IL 60018-6003 Phone 847.813.4699 • Fax 847.813.0115 www.iwla.com
executive and now as a significant buyer of 3PL services. He experience includes working in sales at CN Rail, Tibbett & Britten Group, Skulogix and Meridien IQ. Titled “Sales & Marketing Strategies for Operations & Sales Leaders,” the two-day workshop will be held July 14-15 at the Rosemont Hyatt in Rosemont (Chicago), IL.

          Kenco Logistic Services' CEO Gary L. Mayfield elected International Warehouse Logistics Association chair        
Among Mayfield's top priorities as chair will be membership recruitment and retention, and improving communication of IWLA's government affairs activities at the federal and state levels.

Modern Materials Handling Staff -- Modern Materials Handling, 4/9/2010

Kenco Logistic Services, one of the most respected names in the third-party logistics (3PL) industry, has announced the election of Gary L. Mayfield, CEO, to the post of chairman of the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA).

"I am honored and delighted to have been selected to lead this great organization for the next year," Mayfield said. He brings strong experience to IWLA. Since joining Kenco as CEO in 1999, the company has experienced double-digit growth and is now one of the largest family-owned and privately-held 3PL solutions provider in the United States. Kenco serves more than 200 clients in 31 states and Canada, with 100 facilities and 25 million square feet of warehouse space. The company's core capabilities are warehousing and distribution, transportation management, materials handling equipment, assembly, cartoning, labeling, reverse logistics, packaging, engineering services, metal cutting, fabricating and project management.

Mayfield's expertise in warehousing, transportation and value-added services is founded on more than 30 years of supply chain experience with 3PLs and manufacturing companies.

"The momentum for IWLA has been really building each year with Jere Van Puffelen and previous chairmen steadying the ship and getting it moving in the right direction," Mayfield said. His top priorities as IWLA chairman will be increasing membership recruitment and retention; getting members more involved in the association-including associate members; and improving communication of IWLA's government affairs activities at the federal and state levels, as well as its educational, product and service opportunities.

In addition to IWLA, Mayfield is an active member of the Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC) and Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP).
          IWLA chief unfazed by recession's challenges        

A slumping economy didn't stop Joel Anderson from boosting the group's membership, finances in 2009. Now, he's looking to build on that success.

The conventional wisdom says that an economic slump is no time to try to build up a trade association's membership or launch a series of bold new initiatives. But apparently Joel D. Anderson either never got the word or chose to ignore it. Since taking the reins of the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) three years ago, Anderson has worked steadily to inject a new sense of purpose into the venerable organization. He has revitalized IWLA's government affairs program, expanded its education offerings, and—perhaps most impressive of all—implemented a membership recruitment and retention program that led to positive financial growth in 2009.

Anderson, who serves as the group's president and chief executive officer, has long experience in the association world. Prior to joining IWLA, he spent 28 years with the California Trucking Association (CTA), the last 13 as executive vice president and CEO. Before joining CTA, Anderson was an economist with the California Public Utilities Commission. He has a community college teaching credential in marketing and distribution, and has served on state and national panels on transportation, goods movement, and mobility.

Anderson spoke recently with DC Velocity Group Editorial Director Mitch Mac Donald about the challenges facing IWLA's members, the shifting regulatory winds, and what shippers might not know about 3PL services.

Q: Could you start by telling us a little bit about your background and how you came to be where you are today?
A: I graduated from UCLA in 1970 with a bachelor's degree in economics and then went to work as an economist for the California Public Utilities Commission, which regulated trucking in those days. I spent six or seven years with them, participating in rate-making and regulatory proceedings. At one of those proceedings, the head of the California Trucking Association's research department saw me in action. He offered me a job with the group, which I accepted.

I started out in the research department, and 15 years later, wound up running the whole organization. During my time there, I grew the finances and grew the membership in a trial-and-error way. I learned through the process how to run a pretty good government affairs shop and a pretty focused industry association.

I took a medical retirement in July 2005 when I had surgery for cancer. Afterwards, while I was sitting around trying to decide what to do next, I put my resume on the American Society of Association Executives' Web site, and it just so happened that IWLA was searching for a new president and CEO at that time. The search firm picked up my resume. I went through the process, got interviewed, and then received an offer to come here.

I started with IWLA in April 2006. In the first year, we grew a little bit, and in the second year, 2007, we grew substantially. 2008 was a retrenchment year—a time for realigning, refocusing, and restructuring the organization. In 2009, we began growing again, so I feel real good about the changes we made in 2008 to give us a better foundation to build on.

Q: Who are IWLA's members?
A: I would say that facility-based third-party logistics service providers are the core of our membership. They range from the company that operates a single 50,000-square-foot warehouse all the way up to industry heavyweights like UPS Supply Chain Solutions.

Over the years, our members have gotten more and more involved in value-added services, so that the warehouse is not just a static facility that is racking goods, but an operation that handles all kinds of subassembly, kitting, packing, and order fulfillment tasks. I just toured a warehouse in Indiana where I'd say at least 15 percent of the square footage was devoted to conveyor racks, assembly lines, and Internet order fulfillment—you know, something you would not have seen 15 years ago.

Q: What are the key challenges your members face today, and what is IWLA doing to help them in that regard?
A: There are several issues. One is a concern that probably wasn't on the radar screen with any frequency two years ago but in today's business climate, has become a growing problem for our members—the creditworthiness of their customers, the shippers or beneficial owners of the goods stored in the warehouse. We're seeing more problems with late payments and sometimes bankruptcies. So, we're getting more questions from members about the warehouse lien. Specifically, they want to know about the proper documentation and execution of the warehouse lien to protect their interests if, in fact, a customer goes into bankruptcy.

We're also getting more questions in these tough times on how to market: how to get your name out there, how to build your brand, how to take advantage of social media to market your services, and how to differentiate yourself in the marketplace.

We've done a number of things in response to those questions. For one thing, we developed the Logistics Services Locator (LSL), a free search engine that lets customers search for an IWLA member by location, company, keyword, and so on. We put a lot of effort into that and advertise it to the shipping community.

I also have developed a relationship with a consultant who specializes in 3PL marketing, Chip Scholes. He has made himself available to our members for help developing their marketing campaigns.

Basically, we're trying to help our members understand that in order to market their services successfully, they first have to sit down and analyze who they are and what they do better than anybody else. When times were good, people forgot that because freight came their way. But now, you'd better be able to deliver a clear message about who you are, what you bring, and why people should do business with you.

Q: What else do you offer in the way of member support?
A. We also offer training and education. Our education programs focus on ways to make your company more profitable. We have seven live classes every year plus webinars—all C-level oriented.

In addition, we have really ramped up our government affairs and advocacy work. We feel that the days of deregulation are over. If the government is going to look at more aggressively or intrusively regulating the supply chain, we want to be there to try to make sure those regulations working their way through Congress and regulatory agencies won't negatively affect trade and commerce.

Q: What does the future hold for your members—both in the near term and the long term?
A: It looks like people are starting to move inventories. You know, our industry totally relies on consumer behavior. The long and short of it is, if consumers buy, our people do well. If consumers don't buy, our people don't do well because it is velocity through the warehouse where our guys and gals make the money. I mean, storage is nice, but it's their move into value-added services that has significantly increased our members' role in the supply chain, and that is influenced by consumer behavior.

To a great extent, two items affect the long-term profitability of our members. One is regulations on international trade and commerce. In other words, how free is free trade? If international trade can flow freely, then we have an opportunity to be real creative in helping our manufacturers and shippers outsource, resource, insource—you know, whatever it takes to get the right amount of the right product to the right customer on time. Number two is encouraging our consumers to buy things. Almost everything else is secondary to that because if consumers are going to buy, then freight is going to move and we are going to have an opportunity to make money.

Q: What advice would you give a young person who's interested in pursuing a career in the logistics profession?
A: I'd tell them it's all about following up and following through. Do what you say you're going to do and then let people know you did it. Reliability is probably the number one thing in success because reliability builds trust.

Q: Recognizing that a lot of our readers are customers of your members, is there anything else you'd like to share with them?
A: I think the major point I'd like to make to your readers is how inventive and creative today's 3PL is, so that if they haven't looked at that—at letting that 3PL at least examine their supply chain for ways to reduce costs and boost order fulfillment performance—they should, because the entrepreneurs in our business are incredibly creative. That is what is so thrilling about being in this business. The people doing supply chain fulfillment now are just so incredibly, incredibly creative. The way they are using technology, the way they are managing their work force. It is just fun to watch. So if they haven't tried it, I would suggest your readers put a toe in the water and give it a try. I think they will be very impressed with the results.


          Corporate Sustainability Programs Webcast        
December 8, 2009
11:00 to 12:30 CST

Corporate Sustainability Programs Webcast


Program Objectives
Corporate sustainability programs for 3PLs provide a way to measure key sustainability performance indicators, track program performance, and better manage select environmental and related social impacts. In addition, shippers are looking to the supply chain to meet the needs of their own sustainability programs and are looking to 3PLs to help them operate efficiently without compromising profitability.

Developing a corporate sustainability program provides cost saving through efficiencies, awareness of technologic innovations, and behavior changes when making choices in operations, products, and services that have environmental impact.

Program Agenda
Learn the basics of establishing a strategy for sustainability that relates to your customers' sustainability objectives. Identify the performance indicators that your company will address in a sustainability plan. Measures those performance indicators to establish a baseline that verifies where you are and then develop goals to reach your sustainability objectives. Sustainability initiatives demonstrate your companies cutting-edge committment to safety and the environment. By identifying core values, measuring them, and stretching toward your goals, you will be positioned as an industry leader -- ahead of your competition -- and create goodwill with the public.

What You'll Learn
This webcast will tell you how to develop and integrate a sustainability plan into your business operations, by outlining your (1) strategy, (2) selecting your performance indicators, and (3) integrating tracking of the performance indicators of your daily operations.
          IWLA and Industry Trade Associations Support Port of Seattle Clean Truck Plan        
August 24, 2009

Bill Bryant
President
Port of Seattle Board of Harbor Commissioners
2711 Alaskan Way
Seattle, WA 98126

Dear Commission President Bryant:

On behalf of the undersigned national trade associations representing importers, exporters, and the logistics industries and service providers that support them, we are writing you in support of the Clean Truck Plan included in the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy. We believe this program will improve harbor truck related emissions while sustaining and promoting the competitive position of marine terminals in the region. Other ports around the country are supporting ancillary policies attached to similar clean truck programs that are designed to dramatically restructure the harbor drayage market without any real benefit to clean air. We support the Port of Seattle program in its current form and urge the Commission not to endorse policies designed to restructure the drayage market under the guise of clean air initiatives.

By way of background, the members of the undersigned trade associations move a significant amount of international cargo through Pacific Northwest ports as well as blue water ports around the country. This cargo supports the many port, transportation, logistics, and warehousing jobs in the region. Much of this cargo transits marine terminals by way of harbor trucks. We have a direct interest to ensure that this truckborne freight moves efficiently, safely, and in an environmentally responsible manner.

To that end, we support the elements of the Clean Truck Plan that are designed to reduce harbor truck emissions. These elements, including a rolling ban on the age of the truck, will have an enormous benefit to overall reduction of truck emissions. A similar program that has been in place in marine terminals in Southern California has already converted over 30% of the trucking fleet to 2007 U.S. EPA emissions compliant equipment since the program was implemented. That number is expected to reach 50% by the end of the year and will greatly contribute to air quality improvements. We would like to emphasize again widespread support for this rolling ban based truck replacement concept on the part of cargo owners moving freight through Pacific Northwest gateways. We believe the Port of Seattle has taken the right approach by focusing on the truck itself and not on who drives the truck.

We are particularly concerned with efforts to amend existing federal law to give port authorities and other localities an exemption from federal preemption over rates, routes and service codified in the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act (F4A). Already, the ports of Los Angeles, Oakland and the Port Authority of New York- New Jersey (PANYNJ) support this change in federal law to grant them the ability to regulate port trucking. In our opinion, this attempt by other ports to rewrite longstanding federal trucking laws is designed not to address emissions reductions, safety or security as they claim, but to fundamentally restructure the harbor drayage industry to drive out of business the many hard working independent truckers moving international freight.

Current federal laws already allow port authorities to move forward with clean truck programs such as those included in the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy. As already noted, the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach already maintain the legal authority under federal law to ban and replace aging dirty trucks. Other federal laws regarding port security and motor carrier safety are in place to address these issues.

The effort to amend the F4A will do nothing to achieve clean air goals while fundamentally and unfairly restructuring the drayage market and increasing costs and supply chain disruptions for the Port of Seattle’s many customers. We urge you to oppose efforts to amend the F4A.

We stand ready to work with you to implement a Clean Truck Program that truly supports clean air goals and urge the Port not to endorse a change in federal law that will ultimately harm the many truckers that serve Pacific Northwest marine terminals, the customers of those terminals and the competitive position that your port enjoys today.

Midwest Regional Mini Conference


Hosted by Hans Bauer, North American Warehousing Company
Supported by a grant from Logimax

Program Agenda
Illinois State Budget Crisis & What it Means for Business
Tom Cross, Illinois State Representative, 84th District
Cross -- currently Republican leader in the Illinois House -- will speak to issues affecting businesses operating in Illinois.

Government Affairs Update
Joel Anderson, President & CEO, IWLA
Anderson will update participants on current happenings in Washington, DC. He will cover a range of issues that are part of IWLA’s 2009 Government Affairs agenda, including the Employee Free Choice Act, legislation to regulate the railroads, and supply chain safety and security for food, pharmaceuticals, and hazardous materials and the potential effect on 3PLs.

Warehouse Law Update
Kevin M. Phillips, Fisher Kanaris PC & IWLA retained counsel, & T. Nicholas Goanos, Fisher Kanaris PC
Phillips will look at Illinois warehouse caselaw, particularly how new caselaw affects warehouse operations, and Goanos will provide an update on changes in Illinois employment law.

Strategies for Selling in a Recession
Chip Scholz, President, Scholz & Associates
The last year has been one of unprecedented change. It is not likely to end soon. 3PLs are faced with changes to our markets, our businesses, and, in some cases, our way of life. We have more choices than ever, and not all of them are pleasant. The truth is this: to be more effective, 3PLs must change what we do and we must change how we do things. What worked in past years won't necessarily work going forward. With that thought in mind, Scholz will address change.

The Economic Crisis and Its Implications: Strategic Options for the Warehousing Industry
Ben Gordon, Managing Director, BG Strategic Advisors Inc
Gordon will discuss the current economic crisis and outline what strategic options 3PLs have in order to survive.

IWLA's Member Value Propositions

          New IDC PeerScape Outlines Best Practices for Quality Management        
London, August 2, 2017 — Quality continues to be a mission-critical initiative for manufacturers across products, manufacturing, supply chain, and service. Increasingly, as products, demands, and value chains become more complex, manufacturers are looking at quality more strategically to adopt an enterprise quality management view that encompasses each segment of quality in the organization. A new IDC PeerScape: Practices for Quality Management , outlines current implementations and best practices for quality management.

          2014 Blessings        
I just watched the arrival of Pope Francis at Tacloban City airport on tv. Despite the rains and winds brought by a signal #2 storm, the people waiting for him were not baffled at all. Such a strong faith & hope that I envy all of them for being there to see our Pope in flesh!

Taking advantage of the free time I have this morning and also the mood to write, I would like to note all of my blessings in 2014. So here are they:

* My promotion last Jan 2014 - my new boss admittedly have overlooked this.  What I did was not to seek for it but have asked how my current role differ and what should I do more or need to improved on to become qualified for the job. He got reminded about it and at the last minute, he took action.

* Gian's 1st birthday at Fun Ranch last March and Reese's 7th birthday at Kidzville last July - these were the 2 major events of the year for our family. Both celebrations where attended by loved ones and friends. The venues and food were also good!

* Ava - we let go of HR (habanero red) to give way to the car that will give us extra seating capacity. We still opt to have a basic car which would be fuel efficient to drive to work daily. Hubby and I will probably get an SUV someday, but for now, we'd rather invest the money.

* Looming - I learned a new hobby this year which was good. Although this did not last that long but I would like to take into account the tons of bracelet and loom rings I made. There's still youtube tutorials for other loom things I can do this year.

* LEAP-A4 - Leadership Empowerment and Advancement Program for Asia, Batch 4.  I finished this mini-MBA and our team's project proposal "Seat Management" won 3rd place out of the 7 teams :) One thing I could have done better was to be brave enough in doing presentation in front of high profile audience. I should have listened to my teammates that I could do it given the fact that I got myself involved in the business process. Lesson learned...

* 10th Year Service Awardee - I have never imagined myself working for a company this long! Emerson has been good to me and I would like to contribute more. Another bonus was that our GM whom I look up to celebrated his 25th year. He got assigned in Manila and what a good coincidence that these milestones happened during his stay with our country!

* Trip to Ohio for the Supply Chain Conference - I was there last Nov 1-8 for the conference and business meetings. It was my first time to meet key stakeholders and visit the factory. Best of all,I did my presentation without being nervous. It made me feel more confident that I can do it! Another best part of the trip were the road trip to downtown, dining at Cracker Barrell, and the discount shopping at Target, Old Navy, Gap, and Coach at Tanger Outlet!

* Family gatherings and games - we had 3 during the Christmas holidays: at Pansol Laguna with Torres' relatives, at Tita Lydia's home with my extended family & relatives, and at Nanay's house with hubby's extended family. Aside from good food and get together, games became good part of the celebration. Among the favorites were: Yankee swap, 20 peso winner take all, name the logo, and name the commercial tag line.

* Family vacation at Pico de Loro - we went back for an overnight stay. It was Gian's first time. The weather was quite cool so we did not go swimming that much. The journey and the place itself were really good. The part that we don't like was the food choices and bad/very slow service. We therefore conclude not to come back.

* Lego - I guess I found a toy that probably I enjoy more than Reese did. I am not really creative so knowing that those little pieces came with an instruction was very helpful! I got to enjoy the Brickmaster - Lego and Friends I gave Reese as a present and that's where it all started.

* Getting back on track with finances - we have sold our car before getting a new one; sold Ibuna house that enabled us to pay our current house in full :) We are now in search for a property for investment, like buy & sell. Hopefully, we'll find a good deal in 2015.

* Above all, we are thankful for all year-round good health and safety. For keeping our family together and stronger. No material thing could ever replace having my loved ones with me! Thank You Jesus for never giving up on me despite my shortcomings. I owe you everything!

John Fowler, Big4.com
July 19, 2010

We have not seen many acquisitions come through for KPMG US, but there has been growing rhetoric about the need for Big Four firms to get back into the consulting business.  See this article right from KPMG’s global site, which says….”For some time, the Big 4 accountants have been keen to make the point that they're more than just auditors. Less than ten years ago though, three of them exited the market for consultancy services. Fast forward several years and they're back en masse - and seemingly more assured than before.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:
• U.S. Department of Homeland Security
• U.S. Department of State
• U.S. Army
• U.S. Navy
• U.S. Air Force
• British Government
• British Nuclear Energy
• Canadian Foreign Ministry
• Government of the Netherlands
• Indonesian National Police
• Argentine Foreign Ministry
• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin
• Northrop Grumman
• Boeing
• Raytheon
• BAE
• United Technologies
• Exxon Mobil
• Fluor International
• Bechtel
• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank
• Standard and Chartered Bank
• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/3/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, will deploy its RFIDCentral™ Print Farm on March 27, 2006 in Hong Kong to enable companies whom manufacture products in Asia to meet international retailer mandates without purchasing or deploying any equipment.

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems. From any web browser users can securely log into their system and print electronic product codes (EPC) and retailer compliant RFID labels, generate advanced shipping notices (ASNs), check inventory levels, and locate shipments.

"We are excited about working with Universal's ISR Systems in Asia, the company has an extensive history in China with RFID supply chain solutions" stated Bob Cornick, Vice President and General Manager of RFID, Zebra Technologies Corporation. "The volume of goods produced in Asia is astronomical and we see a huge market for RFID source tagging.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference. "We look forward to a successful completion of the test project and the opportunity to present the findings to everyone in the food aid community" remarked Mr. Schactler.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously
