A Yamazumi chart is a stacked bar chart that shows the balance of cycle time workloads between a number of operators typically in an assembly line or work cell. The Yamazumi chart can be either for a single product or multi product assembly line.
Yamazumi is a Japanese word that literally means to stack up.
Toyota uses Yamazumi work balance charts to visually present the work content of a series of tasks and facilitate work balancing and the isolation and elimination of non value added work content.
If you want to check how a report or dashboard runs as a different user but you haven’t yet setup "ACT AS" functionality or you don’t know the password of the user, you can pass the &impersonate variable trought the URL. (If you are logging in as Administrator)
Change this URL to the one shown below:
In an ideal world the OBIEE development team has his own unlimited hardware, a DBA, an ETL guy/girl, a data architect / repository builder, some reportbuilders who really know the tool, a dashboard designer with a good feeling for DTP and off course a project leader. All these functions should be full time available or at least in the same room and all the noses should be pointing in the same direction.1 comment
In SQL Server 2005 en daarvoor was het altijd lastig om van een datum het ISO weeknummer te krijgen. Via internet zijn er mooie functie te krijgen die dit oplossen, maar standaard bieden deze SQL Server versies hiervoor geen oplossing. In SQL Server 2008 is dat veranderd.
De functie DATEPART kent nu de optie ISOWW. Hiermee kan de ISO weeknummering door de database, zonder extra code, gegenereerd worden:1 comment
Today the de facto standard for (open source) versioning systems seems to be Subversion, but it wasn’t always like that. Up until a couple of years ago most projects were using CVS.
CVS has some limitations though. It didn’t version the moving or renaming of files or directories. In the world of Java where refactoring of software is common this is quite a big issue. Complete directory trees might move because of a single refactoring action. Clearly CVS wasn’t up to this.No comments
