Subject: Exemption from State Laws and Policies

The Montana University System is working with our Executive Branch on a
proposal to exempt the System from many state laws, policies, and
administrative procedures. We are aware of the Oregon Higher Education
Efficiency Act which accomplished this for the Oregon system.

Are there other Higher Education units or systems that have been recently
exempted from all or some state "oversight"? Areas exempted might include:
purchasing, payroll, personnel classification and pay, check writing, IT,
insurance, and printing. We are anxious to discuss the pros and cons, the
projected and real savings, and the impact on services to and from the
campuses. Of course our campuses are not anxious to replace one set of
central policies with yet another, so the question of centralization (=
efficiency ?) versus decentralization (= effectiveness?) is central
(ha!-ha!) to what we need to learn from others.

If the exemption was the result of, or tied to, benchmarking or BPR, so much
the better! Any information you can share would be much appreciated. Thank
you!

Sincerely,

R. Kenneth Stolz (Ken)

The State of Illinois has recently made some moves in this direction, but
nothing that has affected us, yet. They are still in the early stages; I
think hearings on what the schools would like to see abolished were recently
held.

Kenneth,

I work for a private institution but I have heard that the University of
North Carolina System has done or is trying to do what you suggest. The
main campus is in Chapel Hill, NC. The specific campus I am familar with
is UNC-Charlotte. Try both.

Subject: Sources of Technology Sought

BPR Professionals:

Can anyone help me locate sources of voice recogition technology and
automatic marking equipment?

Here is the background information regarding the need of my client: The U.S
Department of Agriculture's Meat Grading and Certification (MGC) Branch is
seeking new technology to simultaneously apply grade marks to carcasses and
record grading data. Currently, the MGC Branch provides a uniform grade
identification service for red meat carcasses (beef, veal, calf, and lamb).
This service provides a standardized means of communicating grade
descriptions and values between buyers and sellers, reflecting consumer
preferences back through marketing channels to the producers. Since its
inception during the 1920's the method of applying Federal grade marks to
carcasses has remained unchanged. Currently, USDA Meat Graders stamp grade
marks on individual carcasses at meat packing and processing facilities.This
involves manually stamping carcasses with meat branding ink in meat coolers
where the temperature ranges from 32 to 40 degrees F. Meat Graders typically
grade carcasses at a rate of one carcass every 6 seconds.

A new system to simultaneously apply grade marks and record grading data must
be ergonomically correct and capable of operating accurately under meat
cooler conditions. Ideally, a new system would be a COTS product, portable
(hand-held), capable of voice recognition (we will consider other
technologies), capable of accepting 23 different grade inputs, and have the
ability to print and/or apply a grade label (collagen, paper, etc.) for each
carcasses. The system must also have the potential for entering or recording
10 individual carcass factors such as weight, rib eye size, fat thickness,
marbling, etc.

If you can help us locate sources of these types of technology, please
contact:

Subject: CALL FOR PAPERS - 3RD EUROPEAN ACADEMIC CONFERENCE ON BPR

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Third European Academic Conference
on
Business Process Redesign

21 and 22 February 1996

to be held at

Cranfield School of Management
Cranfield University
Cranfield, Bedford, MK43 0AL, UK

ISSUES AND CONCERNS

The literaturee, either on or relating to, Business
Process Redesign continues to grow. Many academic and
practitioner journals, even the more esoteric, have
usually one or two articles in each issue. There is a
growing debate on whether BPR is worthy of any further
management and research time or effort. The basis of
this argument is that BPR lacks a sound theoretical
foundation. Yet organisations in various industries
continue to embark on BPR initiatives, aided by
numerous consultancy companies, and no fewer
academics. This conference will cover both the
theoretical debate and the practical issues
organisations are likely to encounter when
implementing BPR. The conference will address these
issues by bringing together state of the art research.

STRUCTURE OF THE EVENT

Each of the two days will be divided into four
streams. Each stream, covering different themes,
will have three papers followed by a discussion of
the key issues raised. A stream leader will be
appointed so that at the end of each day the emergent
issues can be shared by all participants. Particular
streams may be extended to include four papers
depending upon the quality and diversity of papers
received. We anticipate that between 24 and 30 papers
will be accepted for presentation.

PAPER SUBMISSION

Authors are invited to submit papers describing both
theoretical and practical research undertaken in the
areas outlined below. We are particularly keen to
receive submissions from researchers in different
management disciplines including strategic management,
operations management, human resource management,
organisational behaviour and information systems.

Management researchers who are active in any of the
areas listed above, or in fields which may be
associated with these areas, are invited to submit
abstracts of papers for approval by the conference
committee by 31 October 1995.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Developing a theoretical foundation for BPR

- Planning BPR initiatives: is this possible? how
do organisations do this?

- Identifying key success factors in implementing
process redesign

- Issues in aligning organisational structure to
processes

- Introducing new targets and metrics at the
organisational, process and individual levels

- Managing human resource issues: career
implications, reward systems, redundancy, matching
organisational competencies

- Implementing new information systems, technology,
information management and information flows

- Balancing empowerment with control systems used by
organisations: planning, budgeting, service level
agreements

- Methodical issues in BPR research

- Relating process redesign implementation and pilots
/ prototypes / trials: are these relevant? what
options are available?

PREPARATION OF THE MANUSCRIPT

The abstract must be formatted for A4 size paper,
using 12 point Times font. Each submission must have:

- a title
- a 400-500 word abstract
- names and addresses of all authors, their e-mail
addresses, telephone and fax numbers.

Author biographical information is not required with
the abstract, but will be needed when the final
accepted paper is delivered. Biographical details
should not exceed 15 single spaced lines. Please
could we ask you to ensure the abstract conforms to
the above requirements, otherwise they will be
returned and authors could miss the submission date.
After notification of acceptance, authors need to
submit the final paper by 15 January 1996.

MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION

Abstracts should be submitted by e-mail, fax or on
disk by post by 31st October 1995. Faxes must be
typed and double spaced.

Accepted papers should be submitted by 15th January
1996 in Word version 2 or version 6 for Windows
format, either by e-mail or on disk. In addition a
camera ready hard copy of the accepted paper must also
be submitted.

CONFERENCE PAPERS

All accepted papers will be available, in full, to
participants of the conference. Following the
workshop, authors of selected papers will be invited
to revise these for publication in either an edited
research book or a special edition of a leading
journal. We have approached the latter with a
proposal and expect to receive a favourable decision
shortly.

Subject: Integrating Prod. Dev. Throughout the Value Chain Conference

To those of you interested in re-engineering your supplier
management/development process:

Announcing Management Roundtable's First International Conference on
Integrating
Product Development Throughout the Value Chain which will be held November
5-9,
1995 at the Buena Vista Palace in Orlando, Florida.

The conference will focus on how leading-edge companies such as Honda, EMC,
Bose,
Honeywell, AlliedSignal, and more are developing partnership strategies with
their
suppliers for time-to-market, profit, and quality leadership.

"Manufacturers that properly incorporate suppliers into their product
development
process can cut their bills for purchased parts and services by as much as
30%...That's a huge savings, for purchased parts and services typically
account for 50% to 70% of
manufacturers' total costs." Wall Street Journal

The conference features opening keynote speaker Steven Wheelwright,
world-renowned
product development author and Harvard Business School professor.

Also featured will be keynote speaker, Neil Standal, former assistant General
Manager of the 777 division at Boeing.

OEMs should attend this conference to find out what type of supplier
integration is
necessary for staying competitive and to discuss the many issues that arise
from
integration with external organizations.

Suppliers should attend this conference to determine how to initiate
partnerships with
their customers which are necessary for future survival since many
organizations are
selecting just a few preferred suppliers.

Exhibiting opportunites are also available --- space is limited, first come
first served.

welcoming networking reception: Sunday, November 5
two-day conference: November 6-7
post-conference workshops: November 8

cost to attend (U.S. $):

I have long argued for equal opportunity in the bpr business. The Web and
the 'Net have helped level the playing field between big and small business
in many instances. We have participated in many discussions on this very
subject. But what happens in real life? The big guys with the big bucks
dominate. With this in mind, I approached BIS Strategic Decisions about
opening up the BIS European Business Process and Workflow Conference to
smaller, entreprenuerial organizations. The US doesn't have an exclusive on
young, fast growing, technically aware corporations, after all. <grin>

The result? Called "Emerging Technologies and Companies" BIS has allocated
limited space in the Business Forum Exhibit area to be set aside for
qualifying companies to obtain exhibition space at significantly reduced
rates. To qualify, exhibiting companies need to show that they are either
displaying technology relatively new to Europe or are a smaller organization
without the advantage of larger multinational corporate budgets.

I think that this is a wonderful opportunity for emerging European companies
to have visibility in this field as well as for companies from the USA and
elsewhere to gain exposure in a lucrative and growing market at relatively
low cost. You will be situated in the same exhibit area as the industry
giants, and will receive the same opportunity to market your products and
services as they do. This is a *truly* great opportunity!

On Monday evening, November 6, the welcoming cocktail party will include
local business executives and senior management who are unable to attend the
full conference. They will attend one Vendor Test Lab of their choice (an
hour long interactive hands-on workshop) starting at 16:45 and are also
invited to the Business Forum Exhibits where the cocktail party is being
held from 17:45 - 19:30.

In addition to this, the Business Forum Exhibit area is open to all
attendees during all Breaks and Luncheons for the duration of the
conference. The conference agenda can be found on URL
http://www.waria.com/waria/bis95.html.

To find out more about the special Business Forum exhibits, your best bet is
to email Dana Floyd at conferlog@aol.com. You can also call her at
1-602-404-3478 or fax 1-602-404-3004.

Best regards

Layna Fischer
Conference co-director

PS: To be invited to the Monday evening cocktail party or to attend the full
conference, please call Susan Vardy in the UK at +44 1582 405678 (fax +44

PPS: I derive no income from these exhibits, that's why I'm referring you to
other folk. I create only the agenda and speaker program. We have a great
line-up of speakers from all over Europe, btw: That much I can say with no
trace of modesty <grin>

Sorry folks,

I forgot to put the dates of the BIS conference into my mail yesterday.

happens when you work until midnight!

Here they are:
BIS' European Business Process and Workflow Conference
Sheraton Airport Hotel, Frankfurt, Germany

Thanks

PS: The Workflow Management Coalition is meeting the same week in the
Arabella Hotel nearby (within walking distance) from November 8-10, making
it very convenient for vendors and members to attend both conferences.

My company is attempting to acquire data relative to the functions,
activities, and information which lead up to the funding of a system or a
product. In the terms of the military, this is the pre-Milestone 0
supporting processes (e.g., developing and processing mission needs
statements, mission needs analysis, research, and development, etc); from
a commercial perspective, this is the period in which concepts are
evaluated, system/product requirements are analyzed/documented, etc. We
are specifically looking for models (such as IDEF0 or IDEF1X models) that
have been created to describe this general area.

If you have knowledge of the existence and/or source of such models
describing this subject area, could you please contact me directly at my
email address of jbailey@s1.drc.com or at the phone or FAX number listed
below.

My apologies to those of you who receive more than one copy of this
message due to its posting on multiple lists.

Best regards and thank you.
