STEM User Group Meeting 2012

15 May 2012

A learning agenda to challenge existing thinking

The 17th annual STEM User Group Meeting will run from 03–04 October in the timeless surroundings of King’s College in Cambridge, UK. Robin Bailey will present opex models on topics including power, spares, air-conditioning and human resources as a training demonstration of the new aggregate demand and consumable resource features implemented in STEM version 7.3.

A varied agenda of model showcases, guest presentations and hands-on, catch-up training is punctuated by unflinching critical review and discussion among a world-class audience of modelling professionals. The meeting is targeted at prospective, new and existing clients alike. Registration is now closed.

This regular and interactive event has always offered ‘a free lunch’, and much more besides, so the recurring theme of ‘consumption’ evident in the provisional agenda shown below will sit comfortably among the feasting and other refreshments.

Wednesday 03 October Thursday 04 October
Comparing old opex models with new: an introduction to aggregate handling In transition: finding your way around the new input dialog layout in our wake-up modelling exercise
Guest presentations Managing consumption: how not to have a persistent cake resource and eat it again and again
In and out of time: the tale of an aggregate demand and a consumable resource Finding the ‘h’ in kWh and an engineer’s rate: the implicit time factor as a function of capacity
An update on business models for the web: tracking, saving and the Implied Logic hosting solution Latest development directions: heading online, and the end of right-clicking as we know it
GALA DINNER at King’s College Informal meal at Robin’s favourite pizza restaurant

We will work through these concepts as an interactive exercise to illustrate how you can use our STEM software to measure and then forecast scale for your business activities.
