Endress+Hauser Deploys Sopheon’s Accolade Software

Image of workers in an industrial automation work site

Innovation Planning, Collaborative Roadmapping and Management Efficiencies aim to Safeguard Continued Market Leadership Position

Sopheon set itself apart with the promise of best-practice content embedded in its software to guide us in defining our new processes, and its knowledgeable and highly responsive team”

— Dr. Peter Selders, Director of Technology, Endress+Hauser

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, December 5, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sopheon, a global leader for enterprise innovation management solutions, today announces a client relationship with Endress+Hauser SE+Co. KG, a global supplier of products, solutions and services for industrial process automation.

Endress+Hauser SE+Co. KG, headquartered in Germany and part of the Switzerland-based Endress+Hauser group, has long driven growth through innovation. The group introduced 57 new products and 261 new patent applications in 2017 alone. The company found, however, that continued industry leadership called for a further step in continuous improvement of internal planning and decision-making processes.

“We engaged with Sopheon initially with a view to implementing an improved Stage-Gate® process that would keep us focused on the right investments. This quickly evolved into a requirement for a Roadmapping solution to support the management of product portfolios,” says Endress+Hauser’s Director of Technology, Dr. Peter Selders. “Our use of traditional office tools for our Roadmapping activities was creating roadmaps based on a disconnected view of our data, processes and workflows; this did not allow for efficient collaboration in this age of digitalization.”

With the launch of Sopheon’s Accolade® software to support connected, strategic views of R&D projects, the overall product portfolio and forward-looking innovation plans, Endress+Hauser looks to enhance alignment of innovation execution with business strategy. Ultimately, based on collaborative roadmaps, visualizing the true innovation and product portfolios, the organization will be able to prioritize their investments in a better and more transparent way. Eventually this will result in more efficient product management and development.

Dr. Selders explains, “With Accolade, transparency allows for better visibility from the early phases of the development pipeline to alignment with corporate strategy, not only for our executives but also for the product managers and developers within their areas of responsibility. On top of that, we have increased the efficiency in our annual review process with one single source of data.”

Florian Palatini, Expert Innovation Management at Endress+Hauser, elaborates on the benefits even further: “Accolade brings Roadmapping to the next level, and thanks to this, the complexity is much more manageable. We have better visibility of inter-dependencies, effects and relationships.”

The decision to partner with Sopheon was taken after a detailed analysis of solutions on the market. “Of course, Accolade ticked the box on all of our functionality wish-list items, but more importantly, Sopheon set itself apart with the promise of best-practice content embedded in its software to guide us in defining our new processes, and its knowledgeable and highly responsive team. We are looking forward to reaping the rewards of using Accolade at Endress+Hauser,” concludes Dr. Selders.

ABOUT SOPHEON
Sopheon partners with customers to provide complete Enterprise Innovation Performance solutions including patented software, expertise and best practices to achieve exceptional long-term revenue growth and profitability. Sopheon’s Accolade solution provides unique, fully-integrated coverage for the entire innovation management and new product development lifecycle, including strategic innovation planning, roadmapping, idea and concept development, process and project management, portfolio management and resource planning.

How to Fix the Problem of so Few Women in STEM (Part II)

Girls in STEM

Girls in STEM

What can be done to influence young women to achieve success in STEM careers. Read how they can pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Too often, it seems that young women and girls learn about the exciting careers of men and less about women who have equally prominent positions.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, December 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Here in part two of our series, “Why Do Women Hold Just 24% of STEM Jobs in the USA?” we take a look at how to encourage young women and girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

The need for change is great.

At a time when an increasing number of baby boomer workers are retiring, employers are facing a major shortage of talented, high-tech STEM workers, it makes no sense for half of the potential candidates, e.g., women, to feel excluded or unwelcome from these interesting, well-paid careers.

What can be done to influence young woman and girls to achieve success in STEM careers?

Here are five practical suggestions to act on — in your community, your school, and in the work environment:

1. Celebrate Role Models That Inspire Young Women To Achieve Success In STEM Careers

What inspires us to pursue an interesting and successful career, one that we feel passionate about?

Career choices come about as a result of many factors.

Sometimes, a chance coincidence will play a major role, while in other cases, the influence of a favorite teacher will inspire an academic career, or jobs traditionally held by family members will help determine a future career path.

But let’s not overlook the powerful influence of role models. Exposure to the stories of leading scientists, mathematicians, company presidents, and other prominent individuals can have a remarkable influence on young minds, inspiring them to pursue a career that they may not have considered before.

Too often, it seems that young women and girls learn about the exciting careers of men and less about women who have equally prominent positions.

Why not take the time to learn about the inspiring careers of some of the leading women in science and industry so that you can share these role models with young people? Here are some useful examples to add to your storytelling repertoire:

-Joy Adamson, Naturalist and Conservationist

International best-selling author Joy Adamson wrote the book “Born Free” about her experiences living in Kenya in the 1950s, where she rescued an orphaned lion cub named Elsa. The book and the 1966 film adaptation are inspirational works that can help young people learn about natural science, species preservation, and the importance of wildlife and the environment.

-Hedy Lamarr, Wireless Telecommunications Inventor and Hollywood Movie Star

Lauded for her beauty and captivating presence on the silver screen, Austrian immigrant Hedy Lamarr took Hollywood by storm in the 1930s. Yet the movie business and its superficial social scene bored Lamarr, who occupied her mind by reading technical journals, inventing new products, and consulting to Howard Hughes’ aviation business. During World War II, Lamarr invented a frequency hopping radio transmission scheme that evaded eavesdropping and jamming. The technique is still used in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication to this day. The 2017 film Bombshell tells the Lamarr story.

-Jennifer Doudna: Developer of CRISPR/Cas9

Jennifer Doudna, a molecular biology and chemistry professor at the University of California, Berkeley, has led the efforts to unlock the secrets of how to edit our DNA sequences, which is considered one of the most significant discoveries in the history of biology. The CRISPR/Cas9 gene edition technique holds the promise of preventing or curing diseases at the cellular level, ranging from cystic fibrosis and HIV to Huntington’s disease.

-Limor “Ladyada” Fried: Hacker & Engineer, Founder of AdaFruit

MIT engineering graduate Limor Fried founded the phenomenon known as AdaFruit in 2005. This woman-owned company looms large in the hacker and maker movement. Dubbed “LadyAda,” Fried hosts frequent video podcasts on the AdaFruit YouTube channel that teach young people how to create their own electronic projects and inventions. Fried’s unconventional, yet relatable style has inspired young women and girls to experiment with STEM-oriented projects by providing high-quality products, inspirational tutorials, and an unassailable joie de vivre.

2. Promote Participation In STEM Career Development Activities For Young Women And Girls
You can also help young women and girls become more aware of STEM career opportunities by creating or taking part in events designed to connect young people with technical careers.

Here are several annual events to provide inspiration:

Feb 4, 2018: Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day

As part of National Engineers Week, the new Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day program helps connect young women and girls with women working in the field of engineering. We also recommend reviewing Business Insider’s list of the 43 most powerful female engineers of 2017.

February 11, 2018: International Day of Women and Girls in Science 11 February

According to the United Nations, male students are 2 to 3 times more likely to earn a Bachelors, Masters, or Doctor’s degree in science-related fields. To increase awareness of this level of gender inequality, the United Nations declared the 11th of February as the annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science. To learn more about the importance of women in science roles, we also suggest checking this list of 91 famous women scientists.

April 26, 2018: Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day

Originally founded in 1992 as Take Our Daughters to Work Day by the leaders of the Ms. Foundation for Women, this annual event expanded in 2003 to include boys as well. The idea is for boys and girls to learn about opportunities and explore careers at an age when they are more flexible in terms of their gender roles.

This is also an ideal day to teach young women and girls about successful women in industry leadership roles. Check out our article “Celebrating Leading Women in Industry” for information about leading female CEOs in the high-tech and manufacturing industries, including:

-Phebe Novakovic, CEO of General Dynamics
-Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors
-Renee James, former CEO of Intel
-Ginny Rometty, CEO of IBM

Oct 5, 2018: Manufacturing Day

As the manufacturing world accelerates into what some experts are calling the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it’s also facing a looming talent crisis. With more and more Baby Boomers retiring each month, there simply aren’t enough qualified candidates with the necessary STEM skills available to meet the demand. Today’s manufacturing careers require high levels of technical expertise in order to design, develop, manage today’s digitally-based production techniques, such as 3D printing and sensor-driven Internet of Things-based tools.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to recruit young women as well as men to this growing and rewarding sector.

They are appealing to a person with mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer to not fall for glitzy Internet ads that profess experience on the part of the law firm when in reality-the law firm is a brokerage firm that signs up people with mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer and sells them to other lawyers.

The group fears that people with mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer in Pennsylvania that impulse shop for lawyers on the Internet will end up being very disappointed with their compensation results. http://Pennsylvania.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

According to the group, "We do not want one person with mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer in Pennsylvania to get shortchanged because they had no clue who to call for honest advice and who has a track record of achievement when it comes to lawyers. Trust us all the glitters is not gold when it comes to lawyers advertising for people with mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer on the Internet. A good mesothelioma compensation settlement in Pennsylvania could be around a million dollars or more and an asbestos exposure lung cancer settlement could be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars even if the person smoked cigarettes.

"Before you hire a lawyer or law firm for a mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer compensation claim in Pennsylvania please call us at 800-714-0303. We will do everything possible to see to it that you are dealing directly with the nation's premier attorneys. These leading lawyers share our passion about making certain people with mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer in Pennsylvania receive the very best possible financial compensation settlement results." http://Pennsylvania.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

SANTA ANA, CA, USA, November 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Press Release
Performance Update #4 (Performance Report) Major Texas Chemical Company using Cemtek-Unisearch Tunable Diode Laser Analyzer (TDL) to monitor real-time Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN)
Santa Ana, CA, – October 26th, 2018
Cemtek KVB-Enertec, a technology leader in Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) engineered, built, tested, installed and initiated a custom TDL Analyzer for monitoring highly dangerous Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN) gas at a major Chemical Company in Texas. The proven Cemtek/Unisearch Model 7000 Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) Monitor was coupled with a long path length white cell and configured to measure ppb levels of HCN. The specialty enclosure was engineered with safety purge & lock-outs designed for the safety of workers and the environment.
This design was first tested on site for an eight-month period and operated flawlessly during that time with no maintenance or breakdowns. This was in stark contrast to the sites’ existing Infra-red based analyzer system which required frequent troubleshooting & service; which posed a significant risk to workers that were required to repair and troubleshoot the Infra-red system. The accuracy was also constantly called into question. Cemtek then engineered & built a new system. The new Cemtek/Unisearch System has been in operation for four years, during this time it has 100% availability, required zero maintenance and has proven accuracy. The chemical plants technical staff said they have not had to touch Cemtek/Unisearch analyzer once in four years and that no other instrument they service has given such a high level of accuracy, performance & reliability.
The laser-based analyzer is a marked improvement on existing technologies used to measure HCN and other gasses in harsh or dangerous applications. The simplicity, accuracy, performance and unmatched reliability results in measurable cost savings for this customer and a short payback time.
Cemtek’s Model 7000 Laser Monitor is a continuous emission monitor designed to measure flue gases for both compliance and process monitoring in the most demanding of applications. The TDL utilizes a near infrared (NIR) Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectrometer System utilizing a single mode Distributed Feedback Laser (DFB Laser) for unsurpassed accuracy and performance. Since the spectral purity of the Laser is high and the selected absorption feature is unique, measurements can be made free of interferences from any other gas. The measurements are made in‐situ across the Stack (also known as Integrated Path or “IP”) in either a single or dual pass design depending upon the requirements of the application. A Windows-based Software package is available to display the data on either a host laptop PC or the client’s existing Data Acquisition system.
For more information on the Cemtek 7000 TDL monitor, please visit: http://www.cemteks.com
Cemtek KVB-Enertec is a division of Cemtek Group and provides a single source for cost effective engineering, gas monitoring, Data Acquisition systems (DAHS), CEMS design, integration and field services. All phases of Air Monitoring and reporting requirements are provided using our network of highly skilled Field Service Technicians, CEMS Specialists, Engineers and extensive CEMS design experience, measuring NO, NO2, NOX, SO2, CO, CO2, HCl, NH3, THC, H2S, HCN, Hg and many process gasses.
