Immer wieder gut: ERP Daten ins infoBoard

Always the best option: ERP data in infoBoard

 

ERP data is so complicated and still employees flit from form to form, note down numbers and try to reach information fast.

Normally after the importation, stands out the fact that the data is neither of reliable quality and consistency, nor does it contain a unified knowledge of the multiple functions. A unified approach to handle exceptions does not exist  either. Often because the system is not programmed or designed to do so.

As a result infoBoard is firstly a powerful internal consultant that does not cost extra  money. Secondly,  weaknesses are eliminated by the employees and then follows a new voting session with the ERP producer.

In this situation it is better when infoBoard Enterprise Edition’s full functionality is available.

At this point only, have we got a large choice of functions that can level out the event and capacity planning’s weaknesses.

Putting effort is another step toward the company’s digitization, toward consistent unified trading. This will pay off: natural post-order calculation can occur, the employees can “see something”, can develope more skillls and soundly make decisions together.

Strangely enough changes are never possible without expenses. But hard work is always rewarded with positive results.

4 days after the 2 days training course I was on the airplane back to Hamburg; not only clients must put in hard work.

At the same time, we are currently supervising the interface developments of clients for clients in Nashville, Indianapolis, Wisconsin, Bangkok, St.Gallen, Franconia and Bavaria. We have posted two videos on this matter: everyone has to see how easy it is!

InfoBoard has an expertise knowledge in softwares for ERP systems.

infoBoard in Birmingham

infoBoard in Birmingham

Our product is mainly used in England’s north industrial area. A direct flight connection between Hamburg and Birmingham helps when you want to meet with your clients or train them.

After landing we remembered what happened the time before: because of the many roundabouts the dated navigation system we had was too slow to tell us in time what exit to take. With a modern navigation system things would have gone differently.

The second challenge were the elongated highway exits, the reason why we often turned too late and we had to take roundabouts.Third challenge was the fact that for some roads you have to pay fees, for Germans this is very unusual. Actually, hired cars have in most cases a badge, but when you have to correctly join the queu of the toll, you panick.  Do we have what the sign shows or do we have to go to the cash sign?

Oh yes, coming from the left, this is the reason why I bent over to look at the main road, I heared a clear “Left!” coming from the left passenger seat. It’s a peculiar memory especially because there were no vehicles to be seen.

We drove through Walsall. Narrow roads, evening rush hour traffic. The roads winded their way through hilly turns on the right and left. Suddendly we ended up at a crossroads and the navigation system stated that we had reached the destination, athough we had not. Suddendly I remembered that the navigation system didn’t know the exact address, I had used until that moment Google Maps to at least end up close to the destination.

Well, for starters we made the wrong decision to take the longest way through long detours, dead ends and so on. This is the reason why we returned to the crossingroads 10 minutes later and this time we turned in the road that finally brought us to the industrial area where our client had his office.

After the friendly welcome we walked through the big, modern hallways with many infoBoard monitors and infoBoard production time tracking touchscreens. Since the company had worked in the past with many very broad platforms, the company’s members didn’t want to accept anything different from what had worked so well for them for decades. After finding infoBoard on Internet the IT department was able to start it fast. Everybody had a familiar picture infront of them, only now in a digital version and this means with many advantages regarding the distribution of information and time tracking including notifications.

The client is a service provider for control cabinets cabling and is interested in deadline reliability. Each production island manufactures for one client with an outsourcing contract. There aren’t any single products in the portfolio. And well, the company after a powerful growth with bigger hallway enlargements considered inevitable a digitization of the analog platforms.

infoBoard was the last missing piece for a software-aided support of the production

Perfect!

infoBoard in Indianapolis

infoBoard in Indianapolis

I flew with Delta Airlines from Boston to Indianapolis, the only direct flight between the two cities. I read a little bit about the city and …..it was all planned on a drawing board, it’s a copy of Washington.

My clients and one of their business partner from New Jersey were very close to the airport, within three miles distance. The biggest percentage of  infoBoard’s american clients in the New World!

In relatively new and spacious airports there is a small but particular U-Boat. People are proud that Indiana is the U-boat’s location with USA’s longest tradition. I’m confused, although, because on the map I have never seen a big lake in Indiana except for a connection with the sea.

I turned down the idea of renting a car because everything is nearby. I thought I would have been be able to move well around the short roads with a taxi and a shuttle. I later understood that it didn’t work like that.

I waited for the shuttle to the hotel. I always call Uber and other private drivers per mobile phone. I waited for other hotel shuttle buses but after a while I decided to call the hotel once more. I knew that in the USA you have to dial +1 at the beginning and so I did but I still heard “The number you are calling…..”.  Almost an hour later I called another hotel shuttle bus but this time without dialing the area code and I was able to book the hotel bus which was also supposed to arrive in 15 minutes. My phone, I don’t know how, connected to a telephone company and I could get in the american phone network.

While sitting on the bus I looked out at the road to see if I could have walked on the streets but the footpath ended with a small cars bridge, no chance.

After a short stop at the hotel, the hotel shuttle bus brought me wherever I wanted. Commercial enterprises were located, like it is common in America, in offices in big, plain buildings. And it’s not unusual to not have any signboards with the company’s name outside of these buildings. I only knew that the company had a sign close to Rolls Royce and was infront of Rolls Royce. But then I saw my american co-worker waving at me from a distance.

The conversation gets a pleasant twist when the owner of the company comes into the room and in that moment his young IT employee starts talking about how good german economy works and how beautiful the german landscape is. I can only agree with him. He continued to fancy me with the german restaurants’ road in the city center which is although very far away and later comes to his mind that most likely I know well enough german restaurants. The boss gives me a lift back to my hotel,  it takes only three minutes and are there taxis here?

The next morning I all a taxi to go to a company’s training course. This works but I have to bolster the young taxi driver because he has never heared of the street. (but it is a very long street with an odd name: Girls School Street).

Very friendly welcome in the company: a programmer gave me an office where I could stretch and prepare. A walk through the halls of production made it clear why the production needs to be visualized: long rows of machinery are galvanized by metal ribbons with different high quality metals. Manufacturing orders can sometimes take up to one day to be processed, but there, where the copper coils can be split in different sizes to produce different orders at the same time, short processing and set-up times accrue and visualization is necessary to make better decisions on the order of the production.

Coffee, notebook and conference room, the company owner and 8 participants with different tasks ask questions and discuss about what the interface should achieve and on how the planners want to use infoBoard.They were also interested to see the IP camera function of the infoBoard rows.

The programmer ist happy that the interface requirements are becoming easier and easier and at the end everybody said a sincere thank you for the instructive day. She also showed me her own production development calender in MS Access, which simply didn’t have acceptable reaction times.

I was kindly brought to the airport by my contact person because when I called for a taxi they told me they weren’t sure a taxi could get to me within 20 minutes.

I went back to Boston with Delta Airlines. I liked very much Boston’s city center and the Habor Walk Way where you can get anywhere by foot, like in Germany.

(Deutsch) infoBoard mitten in Irland

infoBoard in the middle of Irland

 

An island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean- a place that US companies like a lot, that has a great potential for English-speaking employees. I have never seen this place with such a perspective. It’s a good thing to visit places yourself so that you can change perspective. The economy is based mainly on exportation since the population is relatively small with just 4,8 million people but where there is a lot of “manufacturing” there has to be also infoBoard.

The task setting of both company owners was four weeks in advance: this in order to be able to have an overview on the orders in production, to provide a well-grounded statement based on the processing status of five units regarding new orders’ delivery dates and on the sales department of the successful company.

Our software partner in Irland held meetings and organized a training course and with his help the current 620 planning objects could be selected and assembled. Each planning object could include up to 20 individual components. Each scanned operation step was added to his software, so that the orders that had already been started to be processed would have been well visible through scanned processing steps and the cumulative hours also, through progress bars.

The scheduled orders that are not on time land up on infoBoard Sync Tool Server (in the pool-rows*). The production platform lights up brightly when infoBoard  shows delivery overruns. I wished I had brought with me the Enterprise Edition so that I could have seen a balanced planning of the Critical Chain Projectmanagement (CCPM).

InfoBoard was reordered. I was happy, the users are happy, the software partner understood the possibilities for his other clients.  The database interface is really powerful. You have the feeling as if we were part of a string quartett of a big orchestra. I have to explain this: 30 years ago, during a special night at the Hamburger Markthalle dedicated to Hamburg’s rock’n’roll bands I was the band leader of a band called “Billy de Lion and the Wild Cats”, famous in Hamburg and we played in front of 1000 spectactors. To get ready we have at our disposal 4 wind instruments and we tried a version of the song “Stagger Lee” with a horn section. This was incredibly powerful  because the sound almost threw off the stage…….and the leaves came tumblin’ down…. (the drumbeats).

Now the presentation of the board of directors. He asks what has happened: I just received an order that has to be delivered on Friday (customer-oriented flexibility seems to be a factor for success). We open a preprepared sample order, they dictate to us the time exposure in 5 parts and we plan the order. The result: the order was prepared a weeek too late of the delivery date.

I have always engaged myself so that infoBoard would be used as an operational planning tool  with a unique resource allocation. Here was only an ERP system with very detailed working steps that made it impossile to have a corrrect visualization. But since the software partner masterly treated the data and (can) listens, the presentation of the executive board could be implemented  fast and well.

Now  has to be enforced also the planned order on infoBoard. InfoBoard web application is useful for the Shopfloor, which makes a list of all of the tasks of the day that have to be processed for each sector .

The remaining task for the company employees is to take care of the working hours and the accurate work hour confirmation of the Design. Essential requirements for the quality of infoBoard’s outlook.

*) Small anecdote: While I am in the workshop it comes natural for me to say the word “pool”. With this term I (and all Germans) mean the group of unallocated tasks. We either take the pool or take from the pool. The confused expressions on my irish co-workers’ faces made me think that the word for them probably had a different meaning. Actually at the end can the production managers that agreed with me on the meaning of the expression explained. I only know that this expression has become parto fo the German language in Germany. This is another case of internationalisation: the reimportation of english words with changed meaning. Very interesting.

infoBoard an der Westküste USA

infoBoard on the west coast of the USA

It’s hot, it’s cold. For a german man from the north like me the weather here is very different from what I am used to; here, outdoor it’s too hot while indoor too cold.

During the days of the fair we stayed in an accomodation in Koreatown (L.A). It was near the Convention Center and not far from West Hollywood with the famous stops that we had already visisted several times throughout the years.

Our hotel didin’t provide breakfast and in Koreatown there were only privately  owned shops, for this reason we drove to Downtown to have breakfast there.  Finding a parking spot was a big challenge since the price to leave tha car just  for 12 minutes was 3,50$ . At the end we found a small Austrian restaurant called FoodLab and on the terrasse on the back of its building we could enjoy a lovely cozy breakfast with real bread!

Really important and dinamic economic sectors have developped in Calfornia. The secret is: a big amount of capital that is in search for profits. Therefore were established industries that we in Germany had established time before through capital, for example the development of the diesel engine and the creation of airships.

As I imagined I was also contacted from an investment company. They were searching scalable business models. Millions have to be put at stake, otherwise it’s not interesting. I was asked how infoBoard’s exhibitor in the fair was different from the other exhibitors that also offered a planning software. After I looked up our US rival, of which I still didn’t know much: form-based data capturing system and analysing system with charts for projects. Just another project plannning tool with the number 987. Well, America needs infoBoard because we offer a planning interface that is source-oriented and can intuitively be used thanks to its graphic.

At the fair there were a lot of machine producers. The first impression that I had, is that in comparison with German fairs the technology used here is not very modern.The fairs in Hannover, Frankfurt and Düsseldorf look more glamorous.

Here come the potential clients: remain still, look, ask. Some explain infoBoard to their colleagues. We listen to them and we are surprised; how can someone think to know everything from just some images on a monitor?

Many visitors were job hoppers and they always had in mind a company that needed infoBoard, but where they didn’t not work anymore. Surprisingly a continuous change of employer brings the job hoppers to have a lot of experience with ERP implementations and software development and many said that they then knew that software developers didn’have professional experience and that for years they had to tell the developers what the program should do and that what they said was never done. Ok, I also think it is like that but the situation is going to change when infoBoard is installed. InfoBoard has benne completed and it’s the result of 20.000 developers’ team work.

Two men arrive and unfourtanetely from all it had been said I understood only the words “State, California, Cluster”. Later I took a look at their visitng card and it said “Baja California”, meaning they came from the mexican part. It’s a pity because I was looking forward to introducing them to our spanish co-workers that were standing just 1 m. away.

Other two men arrive and one of them talks in German. We probably already met at the same fair two years ago. After we talked a little about if we could present infoBoard like this  to the owner of the company on Thursday, we came to the conclusion that we should and we decided to exchange other information or oganise other appointments using my german telephone. It’s strange how we could call without problems but when we wanted to send text messages using an iPhone with the adress of the company, the texts would arrive two days after when I was at the airport. Technology is so strange at times!

On Wednesday we went out to have dinner with the company owner and the general manager. We talked about the very interesting story of the last 50 years of the compan, about  how good german education is and the chance to enter successfully the US market. The day after was the presentation of the managers and project managers out of the 400 people in the company. After an hour and a half of infoBoard’s demonstration everbody understood how useful infoBoard was since we assured short-time procedures in the machine shop of the producer.

I now understand better what Germany’s economy needs in order to improve. Banks can no more provide through Basel III the economy with enough money and there aren’t enough investors anymore. Fortunately the first small improvements are occuring in Germany and in the EU. It’s difficult for a normal person who has so many expenses to pay, to be able to save during just one life a personal capital to reinvest.

 

(Deutsch) Der Wunsch, alles ganz einfach zu haben

The desire of having it all and easily

The visualization of complex planning schemes is already an academic field and expert discipline.

In this post I would like to talk about the reaction that people who manage a type of production characterised by complex procedures have towards infoBoard’s visualization. The situation will be clearer with an example: let’s take a car. Buyers are usually not very interested in the technology used inside but rather in the services that the car offers and in its comfort; it must be comfortable and simple. Also potential infoBoard buyers want to see services and comfort but not in a general description, they prefer to see its complex, often customized resources and examples. The infoBoard newcomer has to render during this dialogue hipothetical big transfer payments to adapt to the forming image to the production fast and to also match it with their personal goals.

Small interruption to tell about the exact opposite experience: a swiss company has all its orders in a tangled MS project. All tasks of all orders had been  catalogued under 45 precise and familiar names until year 2021 on our new infoBoard Project Konverter. The newcomer after just 30 seconds can see the result all at once, correctly finished and correctly represented. More than 600 working processes use arrows to show how they are connected to eachother. Do you think that now it is more comprehensible? It is diffcult to represent this because of the great amount of information. Is this the “overview?” (I wondered how far the tasks were from their optimal status. I already considered (had caught) the ERP systems as bad sequence handlers and so now also bad project data handlers.

But let’s go back to the complex production sequences. These are firstly the many constraints that in the USA are known as dynamic scheduling. We set up infoBoard for example fast with sample orders so that it also looks like a “dynamic schedule”. Everything through shift operations? Yes, it looks like it. Now the newcomer is nervous: is there a way to show it in an easier way? Yes, the best way is using the Webapp infoBoard Workbench.

Here we design optimized simple two-dimensional bars side by side and one beneath the other. It took us one year to achieve what we really wanted to acomplish. The implementation  developped in 6 weeks.

What does this point of view determine ? It determines how many orders are being processed simultaneously and how big are the time gaps between them (number of rows, number of bars behind and between them). An evaluation of the planning does not folllow (a comparison between net working time and processing time like in the BusinessController value stream mapping and order overview) or a traffic lights- evaluation as a reply to the CCPM question (close to the delivery date or enough puffer for the delivery date? BusinessController application CCPM-Dashboard) is still missing. Nobody can think of something more modern than infoBoard. The opinion of the most newcomers is still that you have to see to understand and to then formulate an opinion  (always also formulate the matter of that opinion), to control the result. People are used to use excel to look through a file and check everything is in order and make sure one more time that everything is correct. We live in a “Post Excel” and “Post PowerPoint” era. We are actively forming the present and future of  modern, digitalised production managers (Operational Officer).

(Deutsch) Gibt es eine Relation zwischen dem Grad der infoBoard Nutzung und Gehalt?

Is the frequency of use of infoBoard related to salaries?

We argue very often that while using infoBoard profits grow oup to 5% – 15%. That’s because your decisions are of better quality and you can change the way your organization behaves. Let’s take a ship as an example: We just provide you with a steering wheel and a steering gear while you steer your tanker yourself, of course .
When goals are achieved employee salaries and profits can only increase. Higher profits give also the oportunity to reward high-performing employees.
Without higher added value to the entire enterprise there cannot be a new increase in salaries, and employees without greater personal pride have no expectations for a salary increase.
I examined the effects of profits increase and salary raises. If the enterprise’s costs linked to salaries amount, for example, to 30%, a 5% increase in profits is the premise for a possible up to 15% salary increase. How can that not encourage every employee?

Unfortunately, positive events are not an incentive, three months later the feeling of happiness will disappear.
But infoBoard is always there, like a watch on your wrist / preferably on the wrist on the watch.
Constantly present means: the incentive for successs is constantly present at work. In addition, German company directors now have (finally) the opportunity to praise 100%nthis “get things done”.
(I will include in the weekly schedules an automatic praise and a star award)

So…not convinced yet?
Worldwide surveys show that employees overall and every year continue to perform 30% of unnecessary activities at their workplace. InfoBoard intervenes in this gap of non-productive activities. Here, the company can make in its own seat, out of their personal costs a profit.

It is generally thought that cost savings do not lead to higher profits while on the other side  price increases directly increase the profit. My idea is to generate more effective profit increases through optimized workflows.

Another aspect is staff shortage: I can report a personal experience: in 2016 we had despite staff shortage in the sales department a 150% increase in profits over the previous year after I optimized time control. To clarify: infoBoard has led two high effective sales people to increase performance and increase efficiency. And of course to increase salary .

That’s why I introduce our weekly plan to my employees through the application MyBoard on tablets. There is still a lot of potential here, too.

 

infoBoard verfolgt ein grosses Ziel (Big Data)

infoBoard verfolgt ein grosses Ziel (Big Data)

Ein Unternehmen positioniert sich am Markt und wächst durch mehr Aufträge und mehr Mitarbeiter, mehr Maschinen, mehr Produkte, mehr zeitgleiche Aufträge, grössere Projekte mit mehr Beteiligten u.s.w.
Es werden Leitungsfunktionen geschaffen, die Verantwortung für einen Bereich tragen sollen.
Diese schaffen sich nun Softwarewerkzeuge, um dieser Verantwortung gerecht zu werden, i.d.R. Excel Tabellen bzw. Excel-Listen.
Man trifft sich nun, um sich besser abzustimmen, denn ohne die Information aus den anderen Vorgänger Abteilungen kann die Planung der Auftragsbearbeitung nicht funktionieren.
Immer bleibt die rechtzeitige Information über Änderungen ein paar Tage im Verborgenen.
Was kann eigentlich schlimmer sein, als Entscheidungen auf der Grundlage einer schlechten Informationslage zu treffen?
Es gibt eine Antwort: wenn man so weiter macht, obwohl man über die Möglichkeit einer vorausschauenden, gemeinsamen Planung verfügt.

Deshalb melden sich bei uns oft neu eingestellte Produktionsleiter oder Montageleiter, die ohne Softwareunterstützung die Abläufe und Ergebnisse verbessern sollen. Sie merken schnell, dass die Informationslage schlecht ist, die Lauferei gross, die Pflege der Exceltabellen praktisch nicht leistbar ist.
Hier haben wir es mit Menschen zu tun, die etwas bewegen wollen. Sie denken nach, forschen im Internet und finden infoBoard.

Im Urlaub las ich in einem Buch über schnelles und langsames Denken. Forscher über Jahrhunderte haben sich mit der Frage auseinander gesetzt, warum Menschen Fehlentscheidungen treffen. Man hat sich im Laufe der Zeit auf zwei Denksysteme des Menschen “geeinigt”, um folgendes zu erklären:
Im System 1 werden die lebenserhaltenen Entscheidungen getroffen: Situation ist: gut oder schlecht. Im System 2 werden die kognitiven Leistungen des “in Frage stellen” , nachdenken, forschen, kalkulieren erbracht. Dabei wird rational und ggf. auch intelligent gedacht.
Und weil der Mensch faul ist, und das langsame Denken im ” System 2″ ein Anstrengung ist, gibt er sich gerne mit dem Ergebnis des Systems 1 zufrieden. Nachdenken: “Fehlanzeige”. Fehlerwahrscheinlichkeit in komplexen betrieblichem Kontext : “hoch” und Auswirkung: “sehr teuer”.

Daher lassen sich auch die Wünsche nach Referenzkunden der selben Branche in der Nachbarschaft verstehen. System 1: nicht nachdenken.
Ein Neukunde liess sich nicht dazu bewegen, als Referenzkunde auf einer Branchenmesse genannt zu werden. Begründung: diesen Wettbewerbsvorteil werden wir nicht aktiv an unsere Marktbegleiter kommunizieren. Raten Sie mal, welches System ( System 1 oder System 2) diese Firma angewendet hat ?

Bei dieser schnellen Entscheidung werden also nicht alle Informationen eingeholt und bewertet.

Auch unter diesem Aspekt sichert infoBoard mit der intuitiven Bedienung im “System 1” die Überprüfung weiterer Bedingungen nach der Tat zu und verhindert dadurch, dass Rationalität und Intelligenz des “Systems 2″nicht hinten runterfallen.
Zusammenhänge, Terminüberwachung “über alles” und Prioritäten werden überwacht.

Jetzt ist aber das grosse Ziel, die Firmenaufträge optimal zu bearbeiten. Im Projektgeschäft werden Aufgaben eher global und Zeiten auf Annahmen basierend geschätzt. Hier sollte es so sein: das ist das Ziel, darunter visualisieren wir die Aufgaben, darunter visualisieren wir die tatsächlich geleisteten Stunden für die Aufgabe. Und darüber hinaus brauchen wir noch eine Einschätzung, ob die geleistete Arbeit auch den Wert schöpft, der erwartet wird (Earned Value Analysis), ob der Fortschritt an gezählter Arbeitszeit auch der Aufgabenerfüllung, genauer gesagt dem Fertigstellungsgrad entspricht.
Und wenn gar keine Arbeitszeit gezählt wird: ist der Kollege überhaupt da?

Wenn wir das grosse Ziel als Balken/ Zeitstrahl darstellen, die vielen Aufgaben als Balken zeitlich darunter liegend präsentieren, die tatsächlich geleisteten Zeitaufwände wiederum darunter als Balken zeichnen und darüberhinaus im Bezug auf die Durchlaufzeit und die geplante Nettoarbeitszeit und die tatsächliche Arbeitszeit für diese Aufgaben untereinander liegen sehen, dann können wir visuell verfolgen, wie zielgerichtet das Projekt verfolgt wird.

infoBoard Europe hat sich auf den Weg gemacht, die geschaffenen Systeme so zu vernetzen, dass neue Eindrücke über die Leistungsfähigkeit des Betriebes entstehen und bewertet werden können. Manchmal schmerzt es zu sehen, was tatsächlich abläuft. Aber es entsteht eine unglaubliche Motivation, organisatorische Mängel abzustellen, Mitarbeitergespräche zu führen und zu Gunsten aller Stakeholder bessere Ergebnisse zu erzielen.

Wir holen alle Daten aus CRM und Ticketsystemen auf die Plantafel.
Stellen To-do Aufgaben und Wiedervorlagen sichtbar dar und den Getthingsdone aus den Systemen gegenüber, sortieren die Programmieraufgaben aus dem Ticketsystem, messen den Zeitaufwand, lernen über den tatsächlichen Aufwand erschreckende Aufwände, liefern den Kunden asap die Lösungen aus.

Wir werden weitere Ergebnisse auswerten und unsere Systeme optimieren.

Erfolg durch Meilensteintrendanalyse

Success with milestone trend analysis

Long-term projects can sometimes be difficult, long, or seem impossible. At the beginning of a challenge like this one people are always highly motivated to reach the goal, but this motivation continues to decline until the end. Motivation is often related to productivity, so no manager should allow a decrease in performance.

A successful method that is widely used is the milestone trend analysis. This project management tool includes the evaluation of the development of a project through specific objectives within the larger general goal. Thanks to the milestones,  the staff can verify if they are getting step by step closer to the completion of the project. When the employees mark a task as completed, this automatically represents a progress in the process, and success will always motivate the employees, while productivity will consequently be increased.

Milestones can also be used for a detailed project tracking. Precise time lags of each step are definitely helpful to be on time with appointments and trustworthy towards customers. Modern project managers therefore take care of various tools, for example the Gantt chart. InfoBoard  embraces not only this evaluation method, but also improvements in the current operations.

Project management is usually managed with Gantt charts, although there can be many problems with them. One flaw we can find in this method is the distribution of resources for a task because the chart assigns to the same employee two tasks at the same time. This is absolutely impossible to happen with infoBoard. Each resource occupies its own row and no one can be assigned simultaneously with two mpre than one task. In addition, the set of tasks is also available in form of a collection. You can, of course, also export a Gantt chart from an infoBoard planning board, but in this case without any possible errors!

The milestone trend analysis WebView takes into account various aspects that often cannot be evaluated with a single tool. If you are interested in this function of infoBoard, you can read the user guide or watch the milestone trend analysis video tutorial on the infoBoard TV YouTube channel.

 

 

infoBoard Partnertagung in Hamburg

infoBoard Partnertagung in Hamburg

 

“infoBoard is international” this is the first sentence the two colleagues from infoBoard Netherlands / Belgium said.

After eleven years, infoBoard has reached high levels of professional service. The planning software reflects the economy of the country which is sold to and from which it will be used. Unlike what a university theorist would believe or what you would think, infoBoard Australia focuses on the production of kitchenettes, landscaping and the construction of sheep houses. Only the RDSA, Rock Drill Australia that produces drills for Australia’s mineral resources, reminds people of what Australia’s core competence is.

In Belgium our clients are mainly the “better Dutch people”, the Flemish and – the German-speaking companies, while in the Netherlands service providers companies.

In addition to a more powerful translation program will also be offered a reseller portal. A system against Bugs has been invented and it can be used worldwide.

In the following hours were shown under observation of our foreign university students the extensive marketing, development and sales activities while partners told about their customers.

The conclusion of the meeting took place in the harbor museum Övelgönne on the Elbe. We ate North Sea crabs with infront of us the view of the captain’s house  and Hamburg’s mountains. I proudly showed our partners the city’s district called Hamburg-Altona (Which I think is the only true Altona), since the Altona on the australian coast, near Melbourne, is named after the german one. Later after doing little research on the Internet we find out that Altona is really everywhere in Germany since Altona in German means “all too close”.

I am happy: I am an active globalizer. The world is close to me!
