Success Story: Making the Case for Newcastle Systems

Our recent Making the Case has become an integral component to Newcastle’s mainstream awareness strategy… The PCC recently helped our Sales Director get a lucrative opportunity with Dollar General further down the sales funnel—as it provided powerful ammo to the Industrial Engineer who had to present the solution to his VP for approval.

Marketing Director, Newcastle Systems.

Are your operators moving goods excessively before putaway and walking a lot to print labels at fixed stations? Do workers wait around for goods that they need to put away?

If you answered yes, then maybe it’s time to make the case for mobile workstations.

By eliminating costly motion and relying on mobile carts that are equipped with an integrated power system, companies can effectively:

  • boost dock-to-stock cycle time,
  • reduce labor by as much as $10,000 per worker,
  • eliminate improperly labeled products, and
  • significantly increase capacity.

Call for Speakers and Award Winning Supply Chains

If you’re interested in speaking about emerging technologies, or being recognized for your work, read on! 

Are you researching or writing about the emerging technologies that are going to power tomorrow’s supply chains? Or, are you a supply chain manager whose organization is doing great things with AI, robotic process automation, the Internet of Things, robotics, sensors, block chain or 3D printing? If you answered yes on either counts, Supply Chain Management Review wants to hear from you.

April 16 & 17, 2019, Supply Chain Management Review is hosting our first NextGen Supply Chain conference. We’ll be highlighting the emerging technologies that will shape tomorrow’s supply chains across processes – from sourcing to final delivery. Those would include robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, IoT, 3D printing, machine learning and digital transformation to name a few. The goal is to make this a smaller conference for senior level executives – 150 to 200 attendees – with an emphasis on education and networking opportunities.  Here’s the link to the conference, which will be at the Chicago Athletic Association hotel on Michigan Avenue. 

We recently sent out our call for speakers blast. In the event that you are in academia, consulting and analytics, are a supply chain practitioner, or a solution provider who is interested in speaking on one of the emerging technologies, here is the link to the speakers page which will explain what we’re looking for and have the application info. Caveat: The advisory board chooses the speakers. And – to solution providers – they have to be non-commercial. 

As part of the conference, Supply Chain Management Review is launching its first supply chain awards for end users/practitioners that have done notable things related to emerging technologies. If your organization is interested in applying for one of the awards, we’d welcome the submission. Like the speakers, winners are chosen by the advisory board. 

Last, and perhaps most importantly, this is not a pay to play event. Speakers are chosen on the merits of their presentation idea.

We hope to hear from you soon, and, see you in Chicago.

Desktop Engineering Rebrands to Digital Engineering

(Framingham, MA) August 17, 2016 – Peerless Media announced today that its flagship engineering title, Desktop Engineering, will change its name to Digital Engineering, effective with the newly redesigned September issue.

The name change caps off a year of celebrating the brand’s 20th anniversary. Launched in September of 1995, Desktop Engineering was created to inform design engineering teams how to optimize the use of new technologies. At the time, the ability to use desktop computers for serious engineering work revolutionized the industry. The magazine’s mission of connecting engineering teams with the technology they need to optimize their designs has not changed, but the technologies have.

Digital Engineering better reflects the current technologies converging to optimize design engineering,” says DE Publisher Tom Cooney. “Over the years, Desktop Engineering expanded its coverage of simulation-led design, 3D printing, sensors, product lifecycle management, high-performance computing and the Internet of Things as those technologies have become more central to the product development cycle.”

Up-front engineering teams face enormous pressures to integrate electronics, software and connectivity into product designs to meet market demands. Even though their jobs are more complex than ever, product design cycles continue to contract in order for businesses to keep pace with global competition. To satisfy the opposing demands of more design innovation in less time, upfront engineering teams rely on the technologies and processes covered in Digital Engineering.

“We are now at a point where complexity and connectivity have made collaboration critical to product design and engineering,” notes Jamie Gooch, DE’s editorial director. “The desktop is still part of engineering, but it’s the digital thread—the flow of data back and forth throughout the design cycle and product lifecycle—that drives engineering technology today.”

Many of the writers and editors responsible for launching Desktop Engineering in 1995 are still contributing to the magazine, bringing decades of experience to help our audience understand how to use the latest technologies and techniques to optimize engineering design. In addition, new columnists and contributors have been added to bring a fresh perspective to DE’s coverage.

“We will remain true to our unique focus on upfront design engineering teams in our magazine, websites, newsletters, blogs, webcasts, videos and research reports,” Cooney says. “We’ll still be DE, but now our name will match our mission.”

Peerless Media Announces “Peerless Cares” Ad Campaign

(Framingham) – Peerless Media announced today that the company will launch an ad campaign entitled “Peerless Cares” in the print brands Supply Chain Management Review, Logistics Management, Modern Materials Management, Material Handling Product News and Desktop Engineering. The intent of the campaign is to show the company’s support for the cancer organization, The Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care.

The Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care is a nationwide, 501(c)(3) charity that raises money for families that are dealing with cancer. Their mission is to alleviate the overwhelming financial and emotional strains that cancer treatment places on families. The organization helps pay the bills that aren’t covered by insurance, such as household expenses, transportation to treatment, wigs, child care, etc. This year marks the 10th anniversary of The Beauty Foundation, which in that time has provided over $1M in grants.

The Beauty Foundation also supports these families emotionally with programs such as Adopt-A-Family, which provides holiday presents for families who can’t afford them or if the parent is too sick to shop for them, Basket Brigade, which provides a full Thanksgiving meal for hundreds of families each year for the same reasons, and PROM, an annual dance held at Robert Wood Johnson hospital for the teens on the oncology/hematology floor who aren’t able to attend their own school dances.

Peerless Media has been a financial supporter of the organization since the company’s launch in 2010. “The Beauty Foundation has made a difference in the lives of so many families going through an immensely difficult time”, said Brian Ceraolo, President of Peerless Media. “We’re proud to support an organization that is 100% volunteer so that every dollar goes to helping people who really need it.”
