David Telford, Vice President of Innovation
This week at a local manufacturing and distribution user event, I was part of a round table discussion on Innovation and Digital Transformation. My colleagues and I were asked the typical questions and we gave many of the same answers but one of the comments struck me as interesting. When we were all asked how we would define Digital Transformation, we all gave answers that spoke of this concept in the present tense, while Innovation was referenced as a future event. Basically, Innovation is thinking about “tomorrow” and Digital Transformation is something going on now. The observation implied that if you’re in the middle of a Digital Transformation, then you’re not innovating. You’re playing catch up to what is current. I found this idea profound. I am still thinking through it and trying to determine if it is true or not. What do you think? It’s a puzzler.

Average cost items, unlike their standard cost counterparts, require some extra steps when analyzing cardex integrity. With standard cost items, variances can always be determined at the location/lot level.
This is because cost changes create ‘IB’ transactions based on the quantity in the particular location or lot. It is a simple matter of exporting the cardex transactions to Excel, and comparing the summarized totals to the balances on the top of the screen (circled below).
