The Remote Workforce

Published By: Engage2Excel     Published Date: Feb 11, 2019
Teleworking has grown 115% in the past decade, according to the Society for Human Resources. However, in 2017, a number of large employers made headlines by abandoning their telework initiatives, citing the desire to improve communication, collaboration and teamwork. This move was surprising to many for two reasons: • Nearly three-quarters of millennials express a desire to have more opportunities to work remotely1. • Employers can save $11,000 per half-time telecommuter2. Do employees who work remotely feel less recognized, exhibit lower engagement levels or experience less attention from their manager? To find out, we conducted a regression analysis on our 2018 survey of 5,000 employees nationwide. The results presented on the following pages may surprise you.

Leveraging finance and accounting outsourcing to implement a digital finance function

Published By: RSM US     Published Date: Feb 08, 2019
The term outsourcing can have a negative connotation, conjuring images of layoffs and relocating jobs to third parties in remote locations.

Specifically, FAO leverages digital technology to complement and support the back office, streamlining processes while providing enhanced transaction processing, reporting and analytics capabilities. It also allows key resources to focus on strategy, analysis and decision-making.

Manufacturing Intelligence: Keep Your Processes Under Control

Published By: TIBCO Software     Published Date: Feb 01, 2019
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and no need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.

Advanced Root Cause Analysis for Product Quality Improvement using ML in TIBCO Spotfire

Published By: TIBCO Software GmbH     Published Date: Jan 15, 2019
Gradient Boosting Machine (GBM) modeling is a powerful machine learning technique for advanced root cause analysis in manufacturing. It will uncover problems that would be missed by regression-based statistical modelling techniques and single tree methods, but can easily be used by analysts with no expertise in statistics and modelling to solve complex problems. It is an excellent choice for advanced equipment commonality analysis and will detect interactions between process factors (for example, machines, recipes, process dates) that are responsible for bad product. It can also be used to identify complex nonlinear relationships and interactions between product quality measurements (for example, yield, defects, field returns) and upstream measurements from the product, process, equipment, component, material, or environment.
