Archstone Communities: The Dream Hiring Management System Business Process: Recruiting
Archstone is a multi-family Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) with $6 billion in holdings. The company owns and manages 250 apartment communities across the country in 35 markets. Archstone currently receives several thousand resumes per month, and has an employee turnover rate of more than 50%, in keeping with its industry. One corporate recruiter, regional human resources manager and over 300 hiring managers handle its employee pool across the country The decision to automate was spearheaded by Judy Eisen, director of recruiting and staffing for Archstone. The company was using the Webhire Restrac system when she joined Archstone. With hiring managers at the community level and across the country, some hires were found on the Internet. Recruitment advertisements were primarily posted in local newspapers to attract candidates or came via employee referrals. The company found that none of these approaches yielded the quality of candidates desired nor the right number of candidates to choose from. This approach was a hit and miss operation.
The Decision To Automate
Eisen was convinced that a solution existed that could satisfy Archstoneâs hiring and recruiting needs. She had a very specific idea in mind that involved a resumeless approach. She required a system that when pushed to the hiring managers would be grasped enthusiastically. Her "dream" system included:

  • High Precision Measurement Robots
    International Metrology Systems Ltd designs and manufactures Co-ordinate Measuring Machines - high precision measuring robots, which are used by manufacturers in the automative and aerospace industries to check the dimensional accuracy of manufactured products. WinDriver has been the driver development tool of choice for IMS from 1998, where WinDriver was used to develop a driver for an ISA-based CMM, followed by a PCI-based version (using Motorola MPC8240). WinDriver is once again being utilized in IMS’ latest project - a video probe interface based on the PLX PCI9052 chip.

  • DSP Data Acquisition Applications for Nuclear Physics Experiments
    Brookhaven National Laboratory's Physics Department and Instrumentation Division carries out programs of research in collider physics and fixed target experiments. Physicists and engineers at the laboratory developed a PCI card based on PLX 9080 controller, used to acquire data at high speed from a farm of DSP's that collect and format data from the PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). The project required an extremely efficient high-speed driver, which can receive data from the PCI card at the highest possible speed.

BittWare Enhances SDK Using WinDriver
The toolkit is designed for seamless integration of the boards with Original Equipment Manufacturer's (OEMs) products. High performance drivers supporting various operating systems were required for developing the SDK. Disappointed by the limitations of available driver development tools, and reluctant to allocate internal resources to develop a proprietary solution, the BittWare software team sought a driver development toolkit that would allow them to create high performance device drivers, portable between various operating systems, in a relatively short period of time. Using WinDriver, BittWare engineers were able to meet and exceed their goals by quickly delivering a high quality, multi platform driver SDK.
In order to design a complete reference design that would enable host-to-board, and board-to-host communication, (including loading and running of programs, accessing memory and variables and performing board and DSP operations), low-level drivers for the BittWare boards were required. Additionally, the drivers had to support Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000 and Linux operating systems, with the option to port the drivers to Solaris and VxWorks. Writing a device driver for each of the BittWare boards for each of the different operating systems would have entailed learning the internals of each OS, learning how to write a device driver for each OS, learning the relevant hardware protocol, developing and debugging in kernel mode, writing the kernel mode device driver which carries out the basic hardware input/output and repeating this process for each of the supported OSs.

The Challenge
VHS videocassette recorders changed the way the world watches TV. They let us watch what we want, when we want. But, as with any new technology, users eventually take the new capabilities for granted and want more. One of the drawbacks of videotape is that it cannot be watched while it is being recorded. In other words, if you arrive home after recording has begun, you cannot watch from the beginning until the recording is done. If you are interrupted while watching a show that is being recorded, you cannot immediately pick up where you left off. This is where audio/visual giant JVC saw an opportunity. Developers recognized that, by combining recordable hard disk and tape cassette capability in a single hybrid machine, they could provide simultaneous recording and playback. The disk would provide true random access playback, even while recording. Transfer to tape within the same machine would provide an inexpensive archival function. JVC had done extensive consumer surveys and were convinced of the market potential. That was four years ago. The problem at that time was limitations within the existing technology. High volume disks and the MPEG encoder systems required for image compression were simply too large and expensive for a home machine.

Ford launches the ePIM initiative for production information management Ford launched the Product Information Management initiative, to create an enterprise infrastructure for rapidly integrating information from existing business systems. Ford estimates that it now realizes a ten-fold ROI in process improvements.
Executive Summary

Like other large corporations, Ford Motor Company has many individual business systems. Over the years, engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, and marketing organizations have created mission-critical environments that provide information for managing their functional operations. Beginning in 1999, Ford came to realize that it would substantially improve its internal operations by organizing access to enterprise information according to inter-departmental business processes.
Ford launched the enterprise Product Information Management (ePIM) initiative in 1999. This initiative seeks to create an enterprise-wide infrastructure for rapidly integrating information from existing business systems. Based on an enterprise application integration (EAI) architecture, ePIM combines a business object rules-based engine with an extensible set of connectors. IBM's WebSphere Application Server and MQSeries messaging bus enable the integration of disparate enterprise applications.
Organizing information access around business processes yields substantial benefits. Rather than querying multiple systems to complete specific tasks, Ford employees in product engineering, manufacturing engineering, and purchasing functions can rapidly find the information they need through Web-centric inter-departmental information portals. Ford estimates that, for an investment in the millions of dollars, it now realizes tens of millions of dollars of process improvements.

Case Studies - Science/Technology Fair Organizing Group:
Engineering societies, industries and universities in the Rochester (NY) area. Brief description of the program
The "E (Engineering, Exploration, and Experimentation) Fair" is an extension of National Engineers Week but takes place in April to allow students to complete the projects they might have been making for school anyway. (Also to allow us to hold the Fair in the RIT Ice Rink; without the ice.) The fair is a day-long event with separate daytime and evening programs. During the day, middle school students display individual engineering projects for judging, and/or participate in a team competitions including robotics. Each team has a sponsoring teacher and a local volunteer engineer-mentor. Typically, 650 students representing 28 middle schools, participate. Encircling these exhibits, 20-30 technical engineering societies, industries, trade and educational groups display hands-on engineering and science activities for all ages. High school students also attend to gain exposure to engineering career opportunities. Total attendance runs to 4000. Budget:
Between $7000 and $8000 is raised annually, through donations from the various engineering societies and local companies. It costs $3000 for the facility (rental, custodian, utilities, supplies for booths), $1500 for mailing, stationery, publicity, $1000 for gifts for all participants, $2000 for awards.

Christian Rabe, Software Developer and Database Engineer For Wallstreet:Online Germany, providing comprehensive, independent financial market information in German for business and private customers makes good business sense. The word is certainly getting around - the site has:
  • 265,000 registered users 459,000 threads or special interest forums 1.5 million page impressions per day (average) 140,000 visitors per day
Wallstreet:online posts 100 new news stories every day, and maintains an active news archive of over 220,000 items. Registered users contribute about 10,000 new posts per day to a searchable archive of about 4.4 million postings. Due to the tremendous pressure on this dynamic site, added speed was essential. So when developers turned to the Zend Cache, the results were striking. "With Zend, our development system ran on average 3.5 times faster than before we began using the program. In fact we experienced a maximum speed-up factor of 5, and a minimum of 2, representing tremendous performance gains for the site overall, noted Christian Rabe, the company's software developer and database engineer. “We didn't need to change anything in our scripts!" he said. "We find Zend Technologies to be a very competent company, with fast support. Keep up the good work!"

Refinement Advanced Techniques Group, Land Rover
Land Rover was recently evaluating the use of LMS's Optimus design optimisation product in assessing the effect of engine mountings on in-car noise. Although it is intuitive that there will be some relationship, the precise nature depends critically on the design of the vehicle. The problem at Land Rover was to determine which mountings would have most effect on the in-vehicle noise for a given design. Once this was known, the designers could focus their efforts on the critical mountings. Land Rover already used Platform Computing's LSF queuing system to manage their central computing resource. However, they lacked a way to fully exploit resources at the desktop. Because of this, a Design Of Experiment run using Optimus took over 27 hours, thus locking up one desktop machine and preventing the engineer at that machine from working. This effectively prohibited the Group at Land Rover from performing the experiment. When coupled with INTREPID, the same run took only 6 hours, enabling the engineer to set up the experiment in the day, run it overnight and collect the results in the morning.
