My article, 10+2 May Add Up to Trouble, discusses new anti-terror regulations that will require manufacturers to automate shipping documentation processes and rethink supplier relationships.
It is my second article for Manufacturing Executive, which is published by the same company that produces Managing Automation, a magazine I've contributed to for many years.
The April issue of Automation World features another in my series of columns on automation technologies. In April, my column is about multi-core processors. In the story, I discuss the arrival of multi-core processors on the shop floor.
My first article for Thomas Publishing's Manufacturing Executive was published. The article is called Cloud Computing: The Pros and Cons. It takes an in-depth look at Software-as-a-Service versus traditional on-premise business software.
My article on workflow mapping appeared in the April issue of Automation World. It is another in my series of Automation Team columns.
A reader was kind enough to send me a note about the story. She wrote, "Loved your article on Window on Process Improvement and your dissection of the workflow map…great stuff!"
It's nice to receive reader feedback.
