The Construction Industry's Ethical Dilemma


There is never a right way to do the wrong thing. Simply put, that's what ethics is all about, and we've seen it proven again and again in courtroom after courtroom over the last few years, as news of financial scandals continue to come under the public spotlight. In a way, our society has almost become desensitized to the unethical behavior and come to expect it from corporate America after the Enron, Tyco, and WorldCom debacles. Are the same skeptical perceptions present in the electrical design and construction community? That's exactly what Dennis Doran, FMI market manager, owner services, set out to examine in the “Survey of Construction Industry Ethical Practices,” a recent study that takes an in-depth look at ethics in the construction industry.

Effects of Natural Disaster Trends: A Case Study for Expanding the Pre-Positioning Network of CARE International


The increasing number of natural disasters in the last decade necessitates the increase in capacity and agility while delivering humanitarian relief. A common logistics strategy used by humanitarian organizations to respond this need is the establishment of pre-positioning warehouse networks. In the pre-positioning strategy, critical relief inventories are located near the regions at which they will be needed in advance of the onset of the disaster. Therefore, pre-positioning reduces the response time by totally or partially eliminating the procurement phase and increasing the availability of relief items just after the disaster strikes.

Lessons Learned from Project Failure at Denver International Airport: Why Checking Bags is Still a Pain


We regularly review major projects to extract valuable lessons and pass on the knowledge so that everyone can benefit. One failed project we recently took an interest in is Denver International Airport’s luggage handling system. I was compelled to study this project because checking bags at the airport is still one of my biggest fears. My eye twitches just thinking about it. You can never predict how long check-in lines will be, suitcases are lost daily, and human baggage handlers have a tendency to manhandle their wards. We have probably all wondered why airports haven’t come up with a better system by now.
