Plastics Can Be Tougher than Metal (And Lower Cost)

Two Shot Molding For Machine Parts
It’s hard to break old habits—like using metal parts and metal products. However, there are three good reasons for changing from metal to plastic:
  • Lower manufacturing cost
  • Lighter weight
  • Zero corrosion
What many manufacturers don’t know is that—when done properly—plastic parts can be injection-molded with the same tight tolerances and perform just as well (or even better) than their metal counterparts.

Careful design and planning, selection of appropriate materials, and use of scientific injection molding principles will control the main factors that affect precision, accuracy, and tight tolerances—these include material preparation, melt flow index, machine processing parameters, and most importantly, using sophisticated sensor technology to track what is happening inside the mold in real time. Making these kinds of high-performance plastic parts therefore also requires a robust quality system that can monitor every step of the injection-molding process.

When injection-molding vendors fail to meet tolerances consistently with plastic parts, this creates additional machining costs, quality costs to sort or even re-call parts, and possibly even litigation. (Source: Plastic Overmolding by Kaysun)

It only takes one bad experience with plastic parts to drive a company back to metal. But, with an experienced metal-to-plastic-conversion injection molder, there are some big advantages in going with plastic, such as:
Lower cost to produce
No secondary process to prevent oxidation
May be able to eliminate some assembly
Plastic is generally less expensive than metal
May be able to eliminate costly machining operations
Lighter weight means lower shipping charges
No painting needed, molded in color/graphics
Lighter weight
Less fatigue on a person if it is carried
Might make a product go faster
The key is to successful metal-to-plastic conversion is understanding the limitations of the process, materials, and tools are before committing to the project. Every part or product is not necessarily a good fit for metal-to-plastic conversion: important factors that must be carefully considered are the expected tolerances, materials, specific part design/configuration, and initial mold flow/analysis.

The 5 Best Jobs in Marketing

There is a special kind of person who loves the game of persuasion so much they will take any amount of abuse and rejection to finally make that sale. Marketing is the art of changing minds and hearts, and for those who love it, the drudgery is all worth it. Here is my list of the best five jobs in marketing. Telemarketer - Not many would agree with me on this one, but it's where many marketers get their first taste of the action. It teaches how to deal with rejection, how to read people's voices, and how to think on your feet to turn a no into a yes. The Heller Group in Houston, TX employs many call center marketers, but only a few of them catch the bug and decide to spend their lives in marketing. But those who get their start in the trenches of telemarketing turn out to be some of the best marketers around. Trade Show Exhibitor - This is another front lines kind of gig. For most marketers, trade shows only come around every few months at best. This makes them very exciting when they do, and companies invest a lot, and make a lot of money at them. Insight Exhibits builds custom exhibits for trade shows and they have to be eye catching and inviting. The marketer in the exhibit has to be on his toes all the time and be able to know in a few seconds who the serious customers are and who is casually browsing. It's hard work with a lot of rejection, but it can be one of the most exciting jobs around. Website designer - This may not sound as exciting as the jobs mentioned earlier, but it's just as much on the front lines. Today a large portion of sales are completed, or at least started, online. A company's website is its marketing arena. And the effects of every little tweak to the site can be tracked to see almost immediate changes in visitor behavior. Web design companies, like Infogenix in Utah, put great effort into figuring out who the target visitors are and the psychology behind their decision making, and then design websites to capitalize. Company spokesperson - This is the person who speaks for a company publicly. It's who reporters look to for explanations during a crisis, and who gets to announce the big wins. Whoever is assigned this job has to be quick on his or her feet, incredibly knowledgeable about the company, and understand how news writers think. Even the White House has it's own press secretary. It's a job with a lot of potential dangers, where public opinion of the organization transfers to the person. But those who are strong enough and who have a gift for persuasion are idolized. Advertising executive - These are the movers and shakers on shows like Mad Men who assess a company's needs, analyze data, and come up with ingenious marketing campaigns. The lifestyle may not be as glamorous as the TV shows portray them, but there is a reason they are portrayed so often. They are like the field generals of an ad campaign - responsible for the success or failure of multimillion dollar promotions. They must be creative, competitive, and tireless to succeed. It's a hot burning and rigorous lifestyle, but very rewarding for those who can manage it. For some, marketing is a way to make a good deal of money, and in that case, they wouldn't choose jobs like telemarketer or web designer. But for true marketers, whose main payoff is the thrill of the hunt, you'll at least understand why I picked the jobs I did as the best in marketing. Originally posted here.

Getting Valuable Insights from Maintenance Software

Facilities maintenance software may not be the most glamorous software on the block, but it can be quite revealing. For example, maintenance software can provide you with valuable insights into operations and show you areas that you can immediately improve. As a result, you may be able to reduce downtime, slash costs, and gain that elusive competitive edge. How can getting down to the nitty-gritty of facilities maintenance do so much? It all comes down to information and analytics.

Maintenance software is useful in tracking your facility’s overall equipment effectiveness, or OEE. In a perfect world, OEE would live up to its promise and your organization would achieve its goal of perfection (100 percent value-added work, 100 percent speed/capacity, and 100 percent perfect quality). Unfortunately, few companies can lay claim to 100 percent OEE. However, if you can improve your existing OEE rate, wouldn’t it be worth doing?

Facilities maintenance software can address an important component of OEE: equipment downtime. By computerizing equipment maintenance tasks, work, scheduled maintenance, and processes, you can equip your maintenance team with the information it needs to anticipate issues, perform preventative maintenance, schedule repairs, and reduce downtime. This information can also improve productivity and streamline processes, resulting in lower labor costs and less reliance on outside contractors.

Analytical tools in maintenance software can also provide you with the insight you need to make better decisions. For example, visual dashboards could make trends more readily apparent than a stack of work orders detailing unexpected equipment failures. Using this information, you can have your team proactively inspect similar equipment for signs of a looming failure. Analytical tools can also help you decide when it’s time to retire and replace older or obsolete equipment instead of repairing it.

Facilities maintenance software and the insights it reveals can play an important role in improving OEE and reducing downtime.

Plan For Your Retirement by Rejuvenating your Dental Practice

Retirement is supposed to be a time to kick back and unload the stresses of your career. But if you're not prepared with an exit strategy, selling your dental practice can give you enough stress to last you for a good long while. Here are a few tips to help you ready your practice for the time you're ready to sell and maximize the sale price. 

Consult with a dental broker now.
Even if you aren't planning to sell in the near future it's never too early to start preparing. A dental practice brokerage firm like ADS Transitions can advise you on steps to take 10 years before the sale. This might include planning major changes like switching to paperless and making large equipment purchases. Brokers are constantly looking at what the market is doing and working with banks so they can greatly streamline your sales process and help you be ready with confidence when you give the word to list. 

Build up clientele.
Remember that your patients are your bread and butter. Building up a strong client base will not only make you more money, it will make your practice more attractive to potential buyers. People tend to stay put when they find a dentist they like. So even when you transition out, they're likely to give your replacement a shot at keeping their business. Put some effort into building client loyalty by giving incentives your replacement can easily keep up. Consider partnering with other dentists if you still have a few years before retirement. This will not only allow you to pool your resources. Oak Park Dental offers gift cards for referring new patients. You could also build a reciprocal referral network with other doctors in your area. This will help maintain continuity through your transition, which will be a nice perk for a buyer. 

Simplify and Update.
The more up-to-date you can get your office, the more you'll be able to list it for. It tells buyers they won't have to invest in huge upgrades soon after the sale. Make sure they're sensible upgrades that will be useful for the average dentist. Dr. Elena Puig, of Dynamic Smile Design in Orlando,FL, over her career has become certified in dental Implants, Invisalign, and other services that require intensive specialized training. That's great for an established dentist, but if a large percentage of your assets and clientele revolve around these kinds of services, you may find it difficult to show value to buyers who don't yet have the certification to provide those services. Before you list your practice, begin emphasizing your more basic services so they will account for the bulk of your income.

Stocking Up On Cleaning Products

If you operate a cleaning business, you likely understand how important it is to keep your supplies well-stocked at any given time. This is not only important because janitorial products may have a shelf life, it is also important because you never know when you’re going to need more than what you usually use on any particular job (Source: Janitorial Products by Janitorial Supplies Company). For example, I was working in an office building several years ago and I only carried what I typically used and a little bit extra, just in case. When I got to the job that particular weekend, I found that they had a large office party in the building. The trash cans were overflowing and all of the supplies were depleted. I usually carried enough commercial cleaning products with me but on that particular day, I came up short. I ended up having to run across town to pick up more supplies which threw my schedule off by an hour or more.

Of course, it is not only commercial services that need to use commercial products. There are times when homeowners are also going to need to use heavy-duty products to keep their homes clean or perhaps to overcome a specific problem. Commercial air fresheners are an example of this type of cleaner. There are air fresheners that will be sprayed directly into the carpets or into the furniture and it will help you to overcome a strong odor that may be present. Purchasing those commercial products is going to be much more beneficial than purchasing something at your local store, as it will be able to get a larger job done.

A Career In The Service Industry

Starting a janitorial business is something that can really be successful in today’s economic environment. Even though a lot of the types of businesses have seen a decline because of the economy, the service industry is still booming. After all, many of the jobs that are done by a janitorial company are things that are not going to be done by homeowners and those that work in the office. That is why you will also be able to start one of these businesses and see a certain level of success very quickly if you blanket the area with your service early in your business.
One of the things that you are going to need to think about when running a janitorial business is the type of janitorial equipment that you are going to need (Source: Janitorial Equipment by Janitorial Supplies Company). Some of the things that you are going to need to purchase regularly include garbage can liners, cleaning chemicals and towels to put in the paper towel dispenser where you are working. At times, you are going to need to purchase specialty items that are specific to the type of products that are used within the building. This is often true of paper towel dispensers but it is also true of trash can liners, as you may have a special type of can that is used in the office. That is why it is important for you to consider the janitorial supply company that you are using and to form a relationship so that they will be quick to provide you with what you need.

Tools of The Trade – Filters

The tools that are used in industry are quite diverse and in most cases, we don’t even consider those tools that may be used on the products that we purchase. That doesn’t mean, however, that they are not important and in many cases, they may play a role that not only helps to make the product more usable, it may make it safer for us. That is especially the case when you are talking about any type of filtration, something that is necessary for many industries to provide high quality products that we expect. Of course, there is not typically a need for us to understand the difference between a spiral wound membrane and those that use an anode cell but understanding the basic purposes of those membranes can help to improve our appreciation for the products we use.

The basic use of filtration is to separate products in some way or another. In most cases, we could think of it as a pure product being allowed to pass through the membrane but the impure product remaining in the membrane. That is not always the case, however, and some of the more sophisticated type of filtering can provide something known as protein fractionation. That type of filtering actually breaks down the proteins into various fractions which are smaller components of the larger protein. This type of filtering is commonly used in science but it is also used in technology as a distillation process. It is also used for culinary purposes, especially when separating oils such as palm kernel oil and coconut oil. That allows the oil to be produced in different viscosities so that they are available for their various purposes. (Source: Synder Filtration and the Spiral Wound Membrane)

The Evolution Of Mortgage Lending

While credit ratings are important for assessing the creditworthiness for both banks and individuals, they are often not enough to minimize the risk inherent in lending. Credit risk management has evolved to a point where it’s now possible for a sophisticated software program to assess the risk of taking on debt, investing in businesses, and carrying long-term debts for investment purposes. This type of analysis is especially useful for banks since banks rely on investment income from loan activity.

Lending software, and loan portfolio management after the loan has been issued, can analyze all of the interest rates in the market place, assess the risk of default in a loan portfolio, and help banks and other financial institutions make intelligent decisions about long-term portfolio allocation.
It’s not enough to shake hands with clients and trust that their business is viable. Loans are often sold, resold, and packaged with other investments to form complex investment products. These derivatives sometimes require constant monitoring so that financial institutions don’t expose themselves to undue risks. The unfortunate truth is that lax credit standards for borrowers and counterparties is still the biggest hurdle for many institutions. While the primary issue for banks is credit default, banks (and other financial institutions) also face risks associated with trading. So, even if a bank isn’t making loans directly to the marketplace, it still faces potential credit risk from investments in other banks’ loan activity.

One reason that software is becoming more important in managing credit risk is the sheer size of the market. The global credit market is incredibly complex. Financial institutions are forced to pay attention to many different economies, markets, and foreign as well as domestic regulations. While credit risk management software won’t solve every problem, it will help mitigate the risk of portfolio turnover (i.e. defaults) while providing key information and metrics necessary for financial institutions to better diversify their holdings.

There are essentially two steps that financial institutions need to take to shore up their portfolio:
1) Assess their current exposure to high risk loans and;
2) Hire a company that can provide comprehensive analysis and software package to better manage credit risks.

While it’s possible for a bank to build an in-house custom solution, it’s unnecessary. Entire firms already exist to assess and manage credit risks. An outside firm can provide the needed objectivity, stress-testing, and in-depth data analysis that a bank needs. Like a good friend who’s willing to tell someone “inconvenient truths,” an independent firm can keep a bank honest and improve long-term portfolio performance.

Advancing Your Business

When you operate a business, you want to make sure that you are not only profitable but that your business is running as smoothly as possible. In many cases, this is going to make the difference as to whether you are able to move your business into the future or if you are going to remain frozen in the past. Of course, there are going to be a variety of different options that are open to a business owner, but one of the more popular is to use an enhanced SAP software solution that will allow many areas of your business to work together seamlessly. This is especially important, as you would want to improve the SAP workflow that exists within the business and to take care of any of the big data that you are accumulating.

As far as the data within your business is concerned, it can really work for you or against you. You would want to ensure that everything was as safe as possible by employing some form of SAP data encryption. This will allow you to archive your data without making it available to any outside resource that may happen to get into your system. You should also consider incorporating the use of SAP HANA to make the most use of your big data. After all, taking a close look at the data that is available is not only going to assist you in making any changes that are necessary within your business, it will also let you know when it is appropriate for you to do so.

Becoming A Dog Trainer

When you love working with animals, there really is going to be no better job than being a dog trainer. Of course, before you begin working with animals, you are going to need to make sure that you are qualified to open one of the dog training schools that may be in your area. It is not simply enough for you to hang a shingle outside of your home and you call yourself a dog trainer, you need to actually have a dog trainer certification that will let people know that you truly understand what you are going. After all, people are very choosy about their animals and the individuals that are going to be working with them on a regular basis. They need to be comfortable with you and the type of training that you are going to offer.

You also need to consider the various options that are available to you when you are going to be training an animal. Some dog trainers are going to hold group sessions, either at their location or perhaps in a rented facility in the area. Keep in mind, you are going to need to have a larger area, and you must make sure that everything is kept in check. You may also want to consider working with people one on one in their home. This is something that will benefit both the owner and the animal, as it will allow them to work in a comfortable environment and help to develop a bond between them that will last throughout their lifetime.

Doctor of Business Administration - DBA - The New MBA?

Did you know that the US produces over 90,000 MBA graduates per year? And that the UK, the second largest producer, produces over 10,000 MBA graduates per year? Perhaps you signed up for an MBA thinking it would make you special but have found that in reality nearly everyone you work with also has an MBA? Indeed it could be said that the MBA has become a victim of its own success. No longer is the MBA a passport to promotion and financial success - it is now the minimum entry qualification for the company.
In a poll by the Association of MBA's 1300 respondents suggested that the reason they took an MBA was as follows: To obtain a business qualification (82%); To improve job opportunities (79%); For Intellectual stimulation (70%); To increase salary (67%) To obtain general skills (64%); To change career direction (61%); and, To increase self-confidence (52%). Unfortunately many graduates will discover that the chances of increasing their salaries or improving job opportunities upon graduation will not be realised. Indeed the substantial costs associated with taking an MBA has to be written off since companies will not see the MBA as a particular advantage over experience or other qualifications.
Enter the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA). The DBA is a professional qualification that is designed to enable practitioners who already have a postgraduate degree such as an MBA to extend their learning and make a contribution to the body of knowledge of their practice area. Since the DBA is a practical course that requires candidates to research an area of business practice it is usually offered as a part time course for practising managers.
What is the difference between a DBA and a PhD? The DBA is a doctorate designed for experienced professionals based on the research of managerial issues. In contrast the PhD emphasises the development of new knowledge and theoretical perspectives. The DBA is a widely recognised qualification equivalent in standing to a PhD. As LJM University state, "Put simply, a PhD makes a contribution to knowledge whilst a DBA makes a contribution to knowledge in practice, in both cases this being new knowledge." According to the University of Surrey in the UK, "The DBA is right for today's business world. It is often better received in business than a narrow PhD Doctorate. This is because the approach is broader and the thesis takes a practical subject as its basis for the research study."
Typically a DBA is undertaken in two stages. The first is the taught component consisting of a number of business and research methodology modules designed to help the candidate develop both in-depth business knowledge and an understanding of the research process at the doctoral level. This stage can take one to two years and the candidate is usually required to produce and defend a research proposal. The second stage is the research component during which the candidate is required to produce a piece of original research with an emphasis on applied knowledge within the work environment. This can take between two to four years. Some institutions allow candidates to produce three separate papers rather than one thesis, the three papers being bound together and submitted for assessment as one piece of work once completed. The bound work is then sent for external examination and viva (defence). A successful candidate must be able to demonstrate the contribution that their research makes to management practice.
The DBA is offered by many universities around the world. However, when choosing a course it is important to ensure that it is from a recognised university - look for accreditation from European organisations such as EQUIS and EDAMBA, or from the American AACSB. The application process will usually involve the potential candidate completing an application form and research proposal. The proposal will ensure that the university can supervise your area of business practice, an important consideration if you work in a highly specialised field. It should also demonstrate that you have a basic knowledge of the research process. Candidates should already have an MBA or equivalent business Master's degree and be able to demonstrate that they have experience of management at a senior level, or substantial professional experience. Non-native speakers of English would normally be expected to have an IELTS level of 7.0 or equivalent.
The DBA is therefore a natural progression for those who have completed their MBA. It builds on the foundation of an MBA and adds much more. It is exclusive and very few managers have one. As a result the Doctor of Business Administration is set to replace the MBA as the 'must have' qualification in corporate life - and unlike the invisible MBA, it allows you to put 'Doctor' on your business card! What better way to stand out from the crowd?
