Benjamin Franklin’s Maxims

simms_franklin

The celebrated Ben Franklin was never at a loss for wit, and a great number of his maxims still resonate today. Here are some examples:

Never spare the parson’s wine, nor the baker’s pudding.

A house without woman or firelight is like a body without soul or sprite.

Kings and bears often worry their keepers.

Light purse, heavy heart.

He’s a fool that makes his doctor his heir.

Ne’er take a wife till thou hast a house (and a fire) to put her in.

To lengthen thy life, lessen thy meals.

He that drinks fast pays slow.

He is ill-clothed who is bare of virtue.

Beware of meat twice boil’d, and an old foe reconcil’d.

The heart of a fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart.

He that is rich need not live sparingly, and he that can live sparingly need not be rich.

He that waits upon fortune is never sure of a dinner.

Exception Reporting

simms_reporting

A natural outgrowth of systems with master scheduling, exception reporting helps re-buyers and inventory managers know where to take action without their having to review every item every week in detail. Retail and direct inventory systems both use exception reporting. Types of exception reports include:

  1. Management Reports (for instance, top 50/bottom 50 in sales)
  2. Product Characteristic Reports (e.g., all items in a certain fabric across departments)
  3. POs needed based on stock-out calculations, on hand and on order, and projected demand with item/vendor lead time
  4. Ranking reports for returns, cancellations, gross margin, and liquidation
  5. Forecast variance plan to actual
  6. Slow sellers and candidates for liquidation
  7. New vs. Repeat performance
  8. Imported vs. Domestic Product
