Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1,0, Jacobs University Bremen gGmbH (Production & Logistics Networks), language: English, abstract: On-time delivery is essential in today’s dynamic conditions: if a company cannot produce and deliver on time, it has to make up for it by using high cost express delivery or faces customer dissatisfaction. One factor influencing the delivery reliability is the due date performance (DDP) within production. Although the significance of DDP has been established, the question of how to measure it remains. A review of existing literature shows the vast amount of different DDP measures (lateness, relative lateness, tardiness, schedule reliability, etc.). The purpose of this paper is to compare different DDP measures used in manufacturing in order to assess their interrelationship, so that companies are better able to understand the impact of their choice of measure. A review of DDP measures described in literature is performed, followed by statistical analysis of the relations between those measures computed on production feedback data from four real-world manufacturers. The results indicate that there exist differences across DDP measure groups. Further research is needed to assess the benefits of each measure in a given situation.

The New York Times, BusinessWeek, and Wall Street Journal Bestseller that redefined what it means to be a leader.
Since it was first published almost a decade ago, Seth Godin's visionary book has helped tens of thousands of leaders turn a scattering of followers into a loyal tribe. If you need to rally fellow employees, customers, investors, believers, hobbyists, or readers around an idea, this book will demystify the process.
It's human nature to seek out tribes, be they religious, ethnic, economic, political, or even musical (think of the Deadheads).  Now the Internet has eliminated the barriers of geography, cost, and time. Social media gives anyone who wants to make a difference the tools to do so.
With his signature wit and storytelling flair, Godin presents the three steps to building a tribe: the desire to change things, the ability to connect a tribe, and the willingness to lead.
If you think leadership is for other people, think again—leaders come in surprising packages. Consider Joel Spolsky and his international tribe of scary-smart software engineers. Or Gary Vaynerhuck, a wine expert with a devoted following of enthusiasts. Chris Sharma led a tribe of rock climbers up impossible cliff faces, while Mich Mathews, a VP at Microsoft, ran her internal tribe of marketers from her cube in Seattle.
Tribes will make you think—really think—about the opportunities to mobilize an audience that are already at your fingertips. It's not easy, but it's easier than you think.
