WDI Publishing regrets this extra step to contact us. However, Internet realities make this speed bump a necessary evil. This simple step helps to prevent SP4M, robotic intrusion, and a host of security issues for both us and you, our customer.
We patterned this step after several sites that are perpetually targeted for fraud and robotic activity. We found this to be the optimum solution for an ongoing problem on the Internet in this day and age.
We hope you agree with WDI Publishing that a little inconvience is a fair price for a lot of security.

How to Improve Inventory Turns
EMMICO has just acquired one of its suppliers and is rapidly shedding employees as it goes about trying to integrate the companies and the supplier’s legacy system. The organization has asked a ITauber Institute for Global Operations intern team to seek solutions to the operations problems facing the newly organized company. The team is tasked with increasing the company’s economic value index by increasing inventory turns and eliminating an external warehouse. They have a tough road ahead.
How to Establish Economic Order Quantity
EMMICO has just acquired Franz Kuerten and is trying to integrate its Vienna plant operations. The problem is the company is storing too much inventory at the plant and its off-site warehouse — up to five times the amount it needs for regular production. To hit the inventory sweet spot, student interns from the Tauber Institute for Global Operations at the University of Michigan are tasked with using two models to calculate economic order quantity. They will have to report their findings in a week.
