Should you desired to purchase a premiere condom in prewar Germany, you got Fromms Act, the 1st model identify condom and nonetheless a number one model within the German industry. the fellow at the back of this "pure German caliber product" was once Julius Fromm, a Jewish entrepreneur who had immigrated from Russia as a toddler. Fromm was once within the correct position on the correct time: he patented Fromms Act in 1916, whilst the combo of fixing sexual mores, understanding of sexual healthiness, and the shortcoming of trustworthy prophylactics intended a marketplace primed for his product. In 1922 he all started mass construction and opened foreign branches. 16 years later, after construction the logo right into a top vendor and the corporate right into a version enterprise, he was once compelled to promote Fromms Act for a fragment of its worthy to a German baroness. In 1939 he emigrated to London.
Aly and Sontheimer hint Fromm's upward thrust and fall, illuminating the methods Jewish companies like his have been Aryanized less than the Nazis. during the biography of this businessman and the tale of his strange and fabulously profitable corporation, we study the attention-grabbing heritage of the 1st branded condoms in Germany and the sexual tradition that allowed them to thrive, the heretofore undocumented machinations wherein the Nazis robbed German-Jewish households in their companies, and the tragedy of a guy whose nice love for the followed nation that first allowed him to prevail was once betrayed via its executive and his fellow voters.
This alluring account deals a wealth of aspect and a clean array of photographic documentation, and provides a awesome new measurement to our realizing of this darkish interval in German heritage.

Manufacturing Execution platforms (MES) bilden eine neue Klasse von Anwendungssystemen, die eine integrierte Unterstützung der Produktionsprozesse eines Unternehmens gewährleisten sollen. Damit können sie in Zukunft eine ähnliche grundlegende Rolle für die Produktion einnehmen, wie sie ERP-Systeme bereits für administrative Tätigkeiten innehaben.
Philipp Louis entwickelt Definitionen für production Execution platforms und integriert diese erstmals in die aktuellen Themengebiete der Wirtschaftsinformatik. Er stellt ein Vorgehensmodell vor, das die Auswahl eines MES anforderungsorientiert unterstützt und die Anforderungen an MES aus den Produktionsprozessen direkt ableitet. Abschließend bewertet der Autor die Kosten von MES-Szenarien und zeigt mit Hilfe einer empirischen Studie den größten Entwicklungsbedarf bei den aktuellen Systemen auf.
