Updating Your Rotary Dial Phone for the Digital Age

Updating Your Rotary Dial Phone for the Digital Age

Good-old rotary dial phones have been around since forever, and they used to be a part of everyday life, like dragons during medieval period. However, like dragons, suddenly all these marvelous ancient devices just disappeared one day. I was lucky to find one of these dinosaurs at the local flea market. I was eager to try it out, but unfortunately I don't have a home phone line anymore. I hooked it up to my Voice Over IP (VoIP) adapter that I haven't used in years. It almost worked! Well, it ra...

Let's See How Far DMC Has Come

You may or may not be aware that DMC occasionally designates a theme song to mark company milestones. Back in 2009, "Riding the Storm Out" was a nod to overcoming the tough economic climate. In 2011, we decided that the time was "Right Now" for expanding our business. After a great period of growth, two office expansions, and the opening of our Boston location we decided that it's time for a new theme song in 2013. We crowdsourced plenty of suggestions that didn't ...

VB Script to Save an SSRS Report as a PDF

VB Script to Save an SSRS Report as a PDF

Reporting is almost a universal requirement for new projects coming into DMC these days. As part of an HMI we developed for a customer we also installed SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) on a Siemens PLC. This is used to generate reports for production batches run on that PLC. The customer desired these reports to be in PDF format, which after some investigation was easy to do with SSRS. A little background on SSRS... SSRS is a web application that generates nice graphical reports from SQL S...

Geek Challenge: Baffling Birthdays

As school got back in session this fall, the first grade teachers at a large elementary school posted a list of student birthdays. The teachers noticed that of the 8 first grade classes at the school, 4 of the classes had students with duplicate birthdays. Each of the classes have just 23 students. Is their observation a statistical anomaly, or it a highly probable? What are the odds that a class of 23 students has one or more shared birthdays? A: 5.8% B: 50.0% C: 50.7% D: 75.0%...

DMC Boston Kayaks the Charles River

The DMC Boston team held their first All Day Company Meeting on October 1st. Frank Riordan kicked off the meeting with a focus on customer service. He quizzed veteran employees on company philosophies and refreshed the new employees on our core values. One simple fact we expanded on is that customers are never an interruption to your work, they are the sole purpose of it. This sounds obvious enough, but I’m sure you can remember waiting at a register, ready to check out and the cashier tel...

On Top of the Game at DMC Chicago's ADCM

DMC Chicago’s All Day Company Meeting (or ADCM for short) was all set for Thursday, August 18th. The theme of the day was Customer Service Excellence. The schedule, which Frank and I had spent the past week meticulously putting together, was ambitious.

A Rocking Welcome to DMC

A Rocking Welcome to DMC

It was to my great surprise that I was asked what I would like to do for my welcome party. A welcome party. I had never heard of such a thing! After agonizing over an open set of choices (I had only begun DMC’s current book club piece on decision making), I realized that I had never been to the House of Blues, but that I had heard great things about it (from family that were of blues-going age at that time), and so I thought that could be fun. When looking at the list of bands playing that...
