Gestion de stock : les bases et la méthode

Je souhaiterai expliquer en quelques mots les bases du #suivi et de la #gestion des #stocks et des #approvisionnements. En tant qu'expert sur les solutions de gestion, je me plonge presque quotidiennement dans l'univers complexe de la gestion des stocks. Le but ultime est la recherche de l'équilibre parfait entre #disponibilité et #coût.

Peng, Peng. 'Pen and Sword: Meritocracy, Conflicts, and Bureaucratic Appointments in Imperial China'. Ph.D. dissertation, Duke University, 2022.

#Bureaucracy is a pillar of #state-building. I examine how new states achieve the transition from tenuous rule to consolidated rule. Rulers can diversify the selection system to recruit agents who have different skill sets to solve the dual challenges of territorial pacification and routine administration in pursuit of state-building. While rulers appoint officials who have cultural training resources to maintain routine governance, they turn to officials with practical skills to pacify contentious areas. This dissertation brings bureaucracy to the debate on state-building and contributes to the literature about #meritocracy and bureaucratic politics. I draw on archives to build an original dataset on the prefects of #Qing Dynasty of Imperial #China prefectural and conflict incidents to test this theory. First, I explain the temporal variation in recruitment channels by describing how appointment strategies responded to perceived regime threats, conditioned by the supply side constraint. Second, I find that during peaceful times the Qing imperial court was more likely to appoint officials who passed entered the Imperial Civil Service Exams during peaceful times, but they the court turned to #Manchu officials and office purchasers after conflicts broke out. Third, I examine the impact of bureaucratic structure on state performance. I test whether or not the exam officials performed better in terms of delivering famine relief and establishing charities. I find the Qing imperial court shifted to appointing officials with military skills and fiscal resources after conflicts broke out from appointing officials who entered the administration via the exam route. I also find that the exam officials did not perform better than non-exam officials in governance, measured by famine relief measures and charitable activities. I conclude the dissertation by summarizing the theoretical framework and empirical findings, discussing limitations, and reviewing the research agenda.


Inwald, Minerva. 'The Aesthetic Needs of the Masses: Cultural Work in the Aftermath of the Great Leap Forward'. #ModernChina 49, no. 3 (1 May 2023): 290–319.

In the early #1960s, as part of a suite of policies intended to rectify the failures of the #GreatLeapForward, the Propaganda Department and the Ministry of Culture launched new cultural policies that inaugurated a relatively liberal period for the arts in the #PRC. This article explores how these new policies reconceptualized the relationship between art and politics to emphasize the importance of providing audiences with experiences of enjoyment, relaxation, and #aesthetic pleasure, as well as how state-run media reporting on the newly opened Museum of Chinese Art and its inaugural exhibition embodied the aspirations of these new policies by describing and imagining visitors indulging in the beauty of the museum and the artworks on display. By examining the brief expansion of what it meant for art to serve #socialism in the early 1960s, this article reveals that cultural officials experimented with multiple configurations of the relationship between art and politics during the #MaoZedong era.


Fong, Sau-yi. 'Militarization as Personal Cultivation: Student Military Training in Guomindang China, 1928–1937'. #ModernChina 49, no. 4 (1 July 2023): 480–514.

#Abstract :
By examining the #Guomindang 's (GMD's) on-the-ground implementation of its student #military training program, this article addresses the ideological tensions and diplomatic predicaments underlying the #party-state 's youth mobilization strategies. While fetishizing a regimented society, the program incorporated a heterogeneous set of tactics to both inspire and control youth martial activism. The peculiar mix of military discipline, Confucian modes of education, and liberal ideals of voluntarism and competition gave rise to multifarious experiences and sentiments that muddied the main objective of the state—to convert military training into a form of personal cultivation. This study sheds light on the gap between #ChiangKai-shek 's conception of #militarization as the practice of #everyday discipline and Chinese students’ embrace of military training as patriotic resistance against Japanese invasion. Ultimately, the program’s mobilizational potential was undercut by its obsession with managing the trivialities of everyday life and Nanjing’s appeasement policy toward Japan.


Han, Ji Hyun. ‘History Workers and Local History in Communist China’. Ph.D. dissertation, Cornell University, 2023.

Abstract: This dissertation shows how #Chinese #historians carved out a niche for their academic and professional lives by writing #localhistory in the People's Republic of China. In the 1950s, historians experienced changes in the academic language they were expected to use, in the institutionally collectivized workplace, and in the relatively marginalized social status of their field in the all-out drive for industrialization. This dissertation argues that ordinary historians, re-identifying themselves as history workers in the seemingly inescapable Marxist academic regime, initiated research on local history in response to the changes that were overtaking them. History workers reactivated local gazetteer projects, organized field investigations in local villages, mines, factories, and communes, and wrote the local colonial past in congruence with the language of Marxist historiography. Local history provided historians with a legitimate and safe field for their intellectual pursuits using untapped materials. The lack of a political imperative of the writing of local history rather allowed considerable latitude that local historians could use. They explored the space left open by this leeway within the otherwise restrictive structure to make their professional lives meaningful, adapting to the regime’s exclusive academic language and collectivized academia. This dissertation advances scholarship on intellectuals and the persistence of authoritarianism in China by revealing that, as much as authoritarian power shaped intellectual life, local historians’ intellectual pursuits in turn unintentionally contributed to forging the authoritarian structure in China.

The moment we define ourselves and values by the size of our bank accounts is when we start to describe ourselves by the shadows that walk behind us. All too often we work all our lives in hopes to one day live our dreams, only to realize that we spent most of our lives not knowing what our dreams are.

What is a pointelocke?
I'm calling it a pointelocke since I made up some rules! I do a shiny playthrough where I use shinies from other games to play. I start with one shiny and earn another one for the pokepool every time I beat a gym. You can help/hinder/troll me with channel pointes and bits! Most bit incentives can also be redeemed via channel pointe. It was inspired by a playthrough I watched a while ago by The4thGenGamer.

Pointelocke Interactions (Channel Pointe versions available with other channel pointe rewards)
Most of these also have channel pointe redemptions. Amounts subject to change =]
650 bits New shiny! - you choose a shiny pokemon from my pokemon Home (up to the level cap) and add it to the pokepool. We'll level it up to the level of my party with candy
700 bits Bench a pokemon! - take a pokemon in my pokepool and move it to the bench, cannot bench starter
500 bits Unbench a pokemon! - choose a benched pokemon to move into back into the pokepool
250 bits Name a pokemon! - choose an unnamed pokemon in the pokepool (that isn't part of my living dex) to name. Feel free to ask if you'd like to know if a pokemon is available for naming
1500 bits Perma-bench a pokemon! This pokemon will be out of the pokepool for the rest of the game! My starter can't be benched.
400 bits I can't use pokemon center for 20 minutes
300 bits I play in set mode for 20 minutes
300 bits I play standing on one foot (the foot may switch) for 5 minutes
100/400/750/1000 bits I can't use items during next trainer/gym leader/e4/champion battle

Tendances globales du marché du conseil en ERP

Le marché de l'intégration et du conseil en systèmes ERP connaît plusieurs tendances globales qui ont un impact sur le secteur. L'une d'elles est la migration des différents ERP vers le #cloud.

Les intégrateurs et les consultants en #ERP doivent donc s'adapter à cette transition en proposant des solutions cloud et en aidant les entreprises à migrer leurs #systèmes existants.

Un PGI, avantages et inconvénients ?

Un progiciel de gestion intégré (#PGI), également connu sous le nom d'Enterprise Resource Planning (#ERP), présente à la fois des avantages et des inconvénients pour une #entreprise. Cependant, il est évident que la personne totalement ignorante en #informatique aura des difficultés à comprendre et à expliquer ces aspects de manière précise.

La « grève » des modérateurs de #Reddit continue, c'est peut-être l'opportunité de passer à autre chose. J'ai ouvert un compte #Lemmy sur l'instance Lemmy World, et j'ai recréé ma communauté dédiée au monde de l'#ERP. 😋

@Liliana Hearts So what's your game here? Your account looks like a honey-pot bot account.
@OutsourcedMath Friendica Server Admin
Hello admin, sorry to bother you. But it seems that our site can't be found on Pleroma site.
I tried to search my account on but just found some other user. I tried search on another Pleroma site, also failed.
Then I try to search my another friendica account on another site, and it can be found.
I wonder if this problem can be fixed? Thank you!

Hard to really know the exact reasoning, but in Friendica an admin can modify the default visibility of posts containing the NSFW character string. Because the subdomain here is that string, they may have a blocking feature preventing discovery.
No dummy admin, Pen²'s account is on my server; socialnsfw!
It was recently discovered that during upgrades I was using
php ~/bin/composer install --no-dev
instead of
php bin/composer.phar install --no-dev
and that mistake may have made many things work improperly. The former runs the standard Composer software of the executing user, and the latter runs the Composer software that the Friendica creators know works perfectly.
