富士通と日本能率協会コンサルティング、素早い経営判断を実現するものづくりデータの活用に向け業務提携

東京, 2019年9月27日 - (JCN Newswire) - 富士通株式会社(本社:東京都港区、代表取締役社長:時田 隆仁、以下、富士通)と富士通エンジニアリングテクノロジーズ株式会社(本社:横浜市西区、代表取締役社長:延下 哲朗、以下FETEC)、株式会社日本能率協会コンサルティング(本社:東京都港区、代表取締役社長:鈴木 亨、以下JMAC)は、このたび、生産性評価指標(注1)を全社で標準化することで、ものづくりデータを経営に活用することを狙いとして、業務提携することに合意しました。

本提携により、JMACが保有する指標や計算式を用い、ものづくりの状況を経営視点で可視化し活用することで、製造業のお客様の迅速な経営判断を支援していきます。

背景
近年、製造業では、目まぐるしい市場変化に対応するため迅速な経営判断が求められています。一方、ものづくりの現場では、操業度を算出するための元データとなる時間稼働率や性能稼働率、良品率などの指標が一社の中でも工場毎に異なっていたり、属人的に集計されているなどの問題や、これらのものづくりデータと売上や原価などの経営データがシームレスに連携していないケースも多く、迅速な経営判断の実現に向けた課題が発生しています。この課題を解決するため、ものづくり現場から経営層までの様々なデータを連携し、全社で標準化された指標を現場層および管理者や責任者などの中間層・経営層それぞれの視点で確認できる仕組みが求められています。

業務提携の概要
2018年12月からこれまで、JMACとFETECは、JMACが保有する創業以来70年以上にわたるコンサルティング実績・経験・ノウハウをもとに体系化してきた様々な生産性評価指標の中から保守・保全領域における指標を、FETECが提供する設備保全管理システム「FUJITSU Enterprise Application PLANTIA(以下、PLANTIA)」に搭載することで、お客様の生産性・品質の向上に貢献してきました。

また、富士通は、製造業を支えるサービス基盤としてものづくりデジタルプレイス「FUJITSU Manufacturing Industry Solution COLMINA(以下、COLMINA)」を提供し、お客様のデジタルトランスフォーメーションの実現を支援してきました。

今回の業務提携により、「COLMINA」と「PLANTIA」を新たに連携させ、データ収集する対象領域を設計・製造から保守・保全まで拡大するとともにものづくりデータと会計、経理、購買システムが保有している材料単価や工程毎の加工単金などの経営データをシステム連携により紐づけます。これにより、全社で標準化された指標を用いて売上目標に対する達成状況などを適時把握できるようにします。

例えば設備故障によるダウンタイムが与える売上への影響を中間層・経営層それぞれの視点で確認し、刻々と変化するものづくりの状況を捉え素早く対策を打つことができます。また、更なる売上向上と原価改善を考える際に、どの指標を改善すれば最も効果的かを判断できるなど、ものづくりの実績データに基づいた迅速な経営判断を支援します。

各社の役割

富士通
ものづくり現場のデータを経営で活用するための仕組みとして、「COLMINA」および工場全体の見える化を支援するサービス「Intelligent Dashboard」を提供します。

FETEC
JMACとの保守・保全領域での提携をさらに強化し、保守・保全データの集約、活用の仕組みとして設備保全管理システム「PLANTIA」を用い、生産性と品質の向上を目的とした、デジタル技術を活用した設備保全の業務改善を推進する取り組みを提供します。また、「PLANTIA」と「COLMINA」を連携させるインターフェースを開発・提供します。

JMAC
生産性評価指標の提供、および「COLMINA」と「PLANTIA」からのデータに基づき、経営で活用するためのノウハウの提供、および経営直結のものづくり戦略戦術作りと課題解決に向けた具体的なコンサルティングサービスを提供します。

今後について
今後、生産性評価指標を「Intelligent Dashboard」に搭載し、オプション製品として提供していく予定です。

都樂慶祝「世界海事日」,強調兩性平等和永續性的重要性

北卡羅萊納州夏洛特--()--(美國商業資訊)--每年9月26日,都樂食品公司(Dole Food Company)與國際海事組織(The International Maritime Organization)一起慶祝「世界海事日」。今年的主題是「為海運業中的女性賦權」(Empowering Women in the Maritime Industry),這一主題與聯合國永續發展目標相吻合,旨在提高對兩性平等的認識。

從過去的情況來看,航海和船舶管理並非女性首選的職業。但是,都樂公司船舶管理團隊中有50%是女性,船上還有三名女性主管。

都樂船舶營運和管理副總裁Inderjeet Aulakh評價道:「今年,除了慶祝我們的女同事對船舶營運團隊的重要貢獻外,我們還想宣佈,都樂將在2020-2021年接收兩艘新船。這兩艘船採用最先進的科技,每艘可運載919個冷藏裝置,將投入都樂的美國海灣服務,預計每個冷藏裝置的氮氧化物、硫氧化物和二氧化碳排放量將分別減少63.2%、48.54%和48.54%。這是技術改進和服務路線變化相結合的結果。」

作為一個管理和維護自有航運供應鏈的組織,海運對都樂而言是有利的區別因素,透過提高營運效率和減少碳足跡為持續改善目標貢獻力量。都樂還將在五艘現有船舶和新船上使用新科技洗滌器,以因應預期的2020年監管要求,達到硫氧化物排放限制。

都樂鮮果拉美、北美和歐洲總裁Renato Acuña評價道:「我們航運業務中的這些漸進步驟顯示,都樂一直致力於以對社區最好的方式來提供最好的產品。」

Acuña補充道:「今年的世界海事日恰逢Aulakh先生在公司工作了31年後退休。我們想藉此機會感謝他對都樂的重要貢獻,他成功管理我們的船隊,使其成為迄今為止進入美國的鮮果產品中環境足跡最低的船隊,同時還培養並留下一支無可匹敵的船舶管理團隊。」

Plus de 70 organismes ont assisté à la journée de l’industrie des LNC

Les LNC ont accueilli les fournisseurs de l’industrie et les entreprises locales au salon annuel d’automne des Laboratoires de Chalk River

CHALK RIVER, Ontario , 27 sept. 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Les Laboratoires Nucléaires Canadiens (LNC), le principal organisme de science et de technologie nucléaires du Canada, est heureux d’annoncer que plus de 70 organismes ont participé à la Journée de l’industrie des LNC et à l’événement de réseautage organisé aux Laboratoires de Chalk River. Lancé en 2011, le salon professionnel annuel est organisé en partenariat avec l’Organisation des industries nucléaires du Canada (OCNI) pour promouvoir l’engagement entre les LNC, ses partenaires de l’industrie nucléaire, la chaine d’approvisionnement locale et les organismes de développement économique locaux.

« Notre Journée annuelle de l’industrie des LNC a connu un succès retentissant et a offert, une fois de plus, l’occasion aux employés des LNC de réseauter et d’assurer la liaison avec nos partenaires dans l’industrie nucléaire et nos communautés locales, » a commenté Mark Lesinski, président et PDG des LNC. « Les LNC dirigent des programmes importants dans les domaines de la santé publique, de la sécurité nucléaire, des énergies propres et de la gérance environnementale au nom des Canadiens, et notre chaine d’approvisionnement joue un rôle essentiel pour nous permettre d’accomplir ce travail. Cet événement nous donne une occasion de discuter de ces grands projets avec les fournisseurs et d’explorer des domaines où nous pouvons travailler de concert pour stimuler l’innovation. »

« L’OCNI a été heureux de collaborer avec les LNC pour organiser une autre Journée de l’industrie réussie sur le site de Chalk River, » a commenté Ron Oberth, président et PDG d’OCNI. « En tant qu’organisation principale des sciences et technologies nucléaires au Canada, les LNC jouent un rôle important pour l’élaboration de solutions novatrices qui soutiennent de nombreux produits et services de pointe offerts aussi bien sur le marché canadien qu’international par la chaine d’approvisionnement nucléaire canadienne.

Une fois de plus, ce salon bien animé a été le point phare de l’événement, avec ses 78 kiosques et présentoirs mettant en valeur différents fournisseurs nucléaires ainsi que des entreprises locales. Les participants ont profité de cette occasion pour en apprendre davantage sur la gamme de produits et services offerte.

Les LNC ont également réalisé une série de présentations sur le programme de chaine d’approvisionnement et chacun des trois secteurs de mission, à savoir la Gestion de l’assainissement de l’environnement, les Sciences et technologies et le Programme d’immobilisations en cours, afin de passer en revue les nombreuses opportunités commerciales disponibles pour les organismes qualifiés. Des représentants de la communauté du développement économique local ont participé à ces événements, avec notamment une présentation de la Première Nation algonquine de Pikwàkanagàn, qui a discuté des opportunités pour établir des partenariats avec la communauté algonquine avec les fournisseurs. 

L’événement a attiré bon nombre de participants et s’est avéré un forum de réseautage utile pour les employés des LNC, les fournisseurs et les représentants de la communauté.

Les LNC continuent de diversifier leur chaine d’approvisionnement et de cultiver des liens avec les communautés locales. Plus tôt cette année, les LNC ont organisé un atelier de développement économique en partenariat avec le comté de Renfrew, la MRC de Pontiac et les Algonquins de Pikwàkanagàn pour aider les entreprises de la vallée de l’Outaouais à participer à la revitalisation du site des Laboratoires de Chalk River. Parmi les autres initiatives, l’entreprise continue également à améliorer son nouveau portail de fournisseurs, qui offre aux entreprises une information exhaustive sur la manière de faire affaire avec les LNC.

NEC、IoTを活用しJALの空港業務効率化に向けた実証実験を実施

羽田空港における荷物コンテナ運搬車の位置と整備士動線の把握で、IoTの有効性を検証

東京, 2019年9月26日 - (JCN Newswire) - NECは、日本航空株式会社(以下 JAL)の空港業務効率化に向けて、羽田空港(東京国際空港)の屋内外においてIoT(Internet of Things)の有効性を検証する実証実験を、2019年7月~8月に実施しました。本実験では、空港特有の条件に対応しながら、屋外では空港内を移動する荷物コンテナ運搬車の位置把握を、屋内では格納庫における整備士の動線把握をユースケースとしました。

JALグループは新技術による品質と生産性の向上に取り組んでおり、その一つとして、空港の屋内外におけるIoTの活用を検討しています。しかし、設備へのデバイス設置に制約がある、屋外の業務エリアが広大であるなど、空港特有の環境を把握した上で最適なIoTを導入する必要があります。

今回、NECはネットワークに関する知見や技術を活かしてコンサルティングを行い、IoTを実現する多種多様な通信手段(マルチコネクティビティ(注1))のアセットからLoRaWAN(注2)およびBluetoothを活用してIoTの有効性を検証する実証実験を行いました。本実験では、IoTデバイス、サーバ、データを収集・見える化するアプリケーションなどをトータルで提供するNECの「スターター向け実証パック」を活用することで、わずか3週間で迅速に実証実験を開始することができました。

1. GPSとLoRaWANのネットワークによる荷物コンテナ運搬車の位置把握
荷物コンテナ運搬車は、広大な空港内の様々なエリアを移動しており、限られた台数で業務を行うために、必要なタイミングに的確な場所へ配置することが重要です。本実験では、運搬車にGPSデバイスを取り付けるとともに、LoRaゲートウェイを用いてLoRaWANのネットワークを構築しました。その結果、2セットのLoRaゲートウェイで 羽田空港屋外のほぼ全てのエリアをカバーし、運搬車の位置をリアルタイムに把握できることを確認しました。これにより、機器の導入を最小限に抑えながら、広いエリアで通信が可能なLoRaWANの有効性を実証しました。

2. Bluetooth(BLE、注3)による整備士の動線把握
ベテラン整備士から若手へのノウハウ継承や作業効率化に向けて、整備士の作業エリアにおける動線を把握することは有効と考えられます。本実験では、整備士を想定したJALとNECの担当者がBLEデバイスを装着し、BLEネットワークを構築したツールルーム、格納庫、事務所において実験をしました。その結果、航空機、作業用足場、壁などに電波が反射して干渉しやすい環境下でも位置を正確に検出することができ、動線把握が可能であることを確認しました。

本実証実験の実施に対するコメントは以下のとおりです。

JAL IT運営企画部長 栗田和博様
JALは先進的なIoTの導入に向けて、NEC様のコンサルティングを活用することで技術的な実現性の検討や課題の抽出を実施でき、大変満足しています。今後もNEC様の技術力とノウハウを生かしたさらなるソリューションのご提案に期待します。

NEC デジタルサービスソリューション事業部長代理 松田尚久
今回のJAL様との実証実験は、ネットワークを柔軟に活用し、人・モノが生み出すデータを産業の枠を超え賢くつなぐ「NEC Smart Connectivity」(注4)の取り組みの一つです。NECは今後もJAL様のお客様サービスの向上や空港業務効率化に貢献していきます。

How the Ambitious Entrepreneur Marvin Steinberg Revolutionized the German Energy Industry and Created a Multi-Million Dollar Empire by the Age of 25

BERLIN, GERMANY / ACCESSWIRE / September 25, 2019 / Most entrepreneurs believe that building successful companies always requires a lot of time, trial & error, and hustle.

Marvin Steinberg's story is a shining example of why this isn't always the case.

After suffering a serious knee injury that abruptly ended his promising sports career, Mr. Steinberg made a name for himself for creating a process that revolutionized the entire German energy industry.

He was the first to fully leverage the true potential of online marketing in a predominantly offline industry, well-known for using outdated strategies at the time.

Noticing this unique opportunity, Mr. Steinberg successfully combined his deep marketing knowledge with his innate desire to constantly innovate to build a revenue-generating engine that was able to produce significant extra profits in record time.

The key to this engine was Marvin Steinberg's own "affiliate army", numbering thousands of salespeople, busy knocking on doors, cold calling, cold e-mailing, and hustling - all under Mr. Steinberg's guidance.

Unsurprisingly, this highly-effective salesforce quickly shattered every sales record, generating over 5000 new contracts every single month, and millions of dollars of extra profit, compared to traditional ways.

"I was really good on the phone and loved selling, but I realized that if I truly want to become #1, I couldn't be doing the selling myself forever. So I built a network of salespeople who did it for me. Of course, there were affiliate opportunities before I came along, but I was the first one to use online marketing to find other sellers in huge numbers, and get them to join my team. That created huge leverage!" - Mr. Steinberg has said in an interview.

Aiming at the Financial & Blockchain Industry

Soon enough, Marvin Steinberg's whole system became self-sustaining, and he sold the company to an American multinational, making a highly-successful exit.

At this point, most entrepreneurs would have retired, but not Marvin Steinberg.

Looking for a new challenge, he soon founded CPI Technologies, an innovative software company in the blockchain sector. Before cryptocurrency news and IEO lists began to surface at every major media outlet, Mr. Steinberg had recognized the potential of the technology, and thus, along with Maximilian Schmidt, a talented tech-wiz and veteran of developing BTC applications, CPI Technologies went on to pave the major milestones in the blockchain industry.

The power duo managed to achieve impressive results within just 2 years after founding the company, including:

  • 124% average yearly sales increase with custom marketing campaigns

  • 23+ Successfully completed high-value projects just last year

  • 420% average visitor increase for traffic campaigns

  • $100k+/month average profit increase for its clients

There are 2 key reasons why CPI Tech became so successful so quickly.

The first one is that, unlike traditional software companies, not only builds rock-solid software with great UX, but also optimizes them for profitability, producing a significant ROI for its clients within the first 3 months - but often within just a few days!

The second reason is that Marvin only works with companies who truly want to change the world for the better, and this integrity ensures that the result will be something end-users will actually want and love. This is also the reason why CPI Tech focuses exclusively on Security Token Offerings (STOs) instead of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). STOs are regulated and thus put investors at a far lower risk compared to the high risks involved in ICOs or IEOs.

In fact, one of CPI Tech's latest STO projects is the Times Square Token, an ambitious $700M undertaking that aims to "tokenize" a part of Times Square itself, with the power of the Blockchain, empowering anyone to invest in real estate (along with all its perks), regardless of their background, geographic location, or financial situation.

For a high-performing entrepreneur, mindset is everything

Of course, not everything goes smoothly all the time, and sometimes even top entrepreneurs need time to take a step back, rest, and focus on developing their mindset. Mr. Steinberg does this regularly.

For example, when searching for inspiration regarding what to focus on next, Marvin Steinberg took a 10-day solo trip to the South African wilderness, without any phone, internet, or other distractions. Only nature and his inner voice.

"If you have to make a big decision, go into the bushes, stay there for a few days by yourself, and you'll get your answer. You'll discover what's good and bad for you"

And out of this mini-sabbatical, several new promising ideas, joint venture opportunities, and more selective partnerships were born.

Nowadays, Marvin Steinberg is busy growing 2 new companies - Steinberg Marketing and Steinberg Invest. These ventures are an addition to his already-existing companies.

Steinberg Marketing offers a full range of battle-tested marketing services for companies who want to scale to the next level,including ROI-centric PPC marketing campaigns, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), PR campaigns, conversion rate optimization, high-converting sales funnels, and more.

When asked about why this company is different compared to any other marketing agency, Marvin Steinberg had this to say:

"Most marketing agencies are all talk and no show. They don't have comprehensive real-world experience and they gamble their clients' money. I learned everything about marketing while scaling my own companies, spending my own money. Millions of my personal money in ad spend. When I lost, I lost from my own pocket… so I was forced to become better and quickly figure out what works and what doesn't"

Marvin Steinberg's latest company is Steinberg Invest, in which he helps ambitious startups with a proven track record scale to the next level through his vast experience, insider knowledge, gigantic network of influencers, and a willingness to help others succeed.

While Marvin Steinberg does not partner with everyone, he's constantly on the lookout for new startups with an already successful proof of concept, and who are ready to scale to the next level.

Credit Unions to discuss good governance at 35th Annual Directors’ Forum

GUELPH, Ontario, Sept. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Over 120 Ontario credit union and caisse populaire board directors will be gathering at the Hilton Mississauga/Meadowvale on October 3, 4 and 5, to discuss good governance practices for the future survival and success of Ontario’s financial co-operatives.

“The theme of ‘Good Governance’ was chosen for this year’s Forum as it is a key aspect of every co-operative organization – one that contributes to its overall success, but that also brings with it many challenges,” says Tanya Gracie, Chair of the Directors’ Forum Executive Committee. “We will be arming directors with the future-oriented governance knowledge and tools they need to take back to their organizations, to make their credit unions stronger and more competitive.”

Eighteen speakers from within and outside of the system will be sharing their expertise on various topics including Board Membership Engagement, Risk Management, the Future of Ontario’s Credit Unions, Board and CEO Recruitment, Director Development and Competencies and High Performing Board Barometers.

Delegates will also be hearing from Ontario’s new Regulator; Mark White, CEO of the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA), will be sharing an overview of the current regulatory landscape and how things have changed with the recent transition to FSRA – and more importantly, what this means for credit unions. Martha Durdin, President and CEO of the Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA), will also share an update on what is happening at CCUA and an overview of the national credit union landscape.

“For 35 years the Directors’ Forum has been creating unique opportunities for directors to learn about system trends and challenges, participate in discussion forums, share best practices, and network with other leaders from across the province,” adds Gracie. “Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our Executive Committee and staff, as well as our sponsors and participants, we anticipate another successful conference in 2019.”

Quin Central Park by Hilton Club presents exhibition of New York Academy of Art alumnae

NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Quin Central Park by Hilton Club, located at 57th Street and Sixth Avenue, continues a year-long exhibition series focused on the work of female artists on October 2, with the launch of “Dinner Party: An exhibition with the Alumni Association of the New York Academy of Art,” featuring selected mixed-media works from eight New York Academy of Art alumnae. The artists include: Robyn Gibson, Gabriela Handal, Lisa Lebofsky, Reisha Perlmutter, Buket Savci, and Julie Severino, along with works from co-curators Kate Sinclair and Tabitha Whitley. The exhibition is set to be on view in public areas of the Quin, including the lobby level, through November, 2019.

Kate Sinclair, Director of Alumni Affairs at the New York Academy of Art, commented, “Curating a show is like throwing a dinner party - each piece has a seat at the table. Each artist brings an energy that facilitates the larger conversation. The best dinner parties have a variety of voices. This exhibition is also a nod to Judy Chicago’s 'The Dinner Party,' that represented powerful female voices at her dinner table. This show represents the diverse and powerful female voices of tomorrow.”

Robyn Gibson is an emerging artist and recent graduate of the New York Academy of Art. Larger-than-life-sized bold, gestural charcoal figures on canvas, a lyrical writing style meant to pack a punch, and quick textural figure sculptures all convey movement that is important to her work. As an artist obsessed with self-portraiture and the exploration of her insecurities and identity, Robyn constantly thinks of black identity, black bodies, and what it means to be authentic.

Gabriela Handal is a Panamanian artist currently working and living in Brooklyn. Handal moved from her home country in 2013 to study at the New York Academy of Art and graduated in 2015 with an MFA with a major in drawing and concentration in anatomy.  Her work revolves around the human figure and the exploration of the self through self-portraiture.

Lisa Lebofsky is a nomadic plein air painter who paints the susceptibility of nature, correlating its restlessness with our own human vulnerabilities. Lebofsky finds inspiration by traveling extensively, often to remote parts of the world, in order to immerse herself in different environments and cultures. She seeks out areas around the globe that are particularly susceptible to the impacts of climate change and meets with local residents to discuss how their community is impacted. 

Reisha Perlmutter lives and works in New York City. She received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her MFA from the New York Academy of Art. She primarily works within figuration, focusing on the organic nature of both the body as well as the materiality used to create the work. Her focus on the female form as it exists uninhibited in nature is a thematic staple to her work.
