MDIA - The PRODUCT Perspective


OVERVIEW OF PRODUCT
Probably more than anything else, it is PRODUCT ... goods and services ... that enables quality of life. For most of history, product was scarce because knowlege and productivity was low, but in the past 300 years, there has been amazing technological progress and in the 21st century there is the capacity to make a huge amount of product which in turn can support a good quality of life for everyone. The downside of this is that the manufacturing processes that are used do damage to the environment, and the management systems for organization tend to focus on products with a maximum of profitability rather than products that have the maximum of net impact. In the end it is through product that people are going to have the most impact on the decisions of organizations and in turn on the overall enviro-socio-economic system. When people change their behavior with respect to product, then everything changes.

TO BE COMPLETED


HISTORY OF PROCESS
It is improvement in PROCESS that has enabled productivity improvement over time. Almost everything that is a part of the modern enviro-socio-economic system that supports a decent quality of life and standard of living is produced using a process that is more efficient than the process that was used in the past. Take the transport sector for example, the process to convert fuel into energy for transportation has moved from the steam locomotive of the 19th century to the jet engine of the 21st century. Take computing for example, a process that was aided by teh abacus, and later various forms of calculator to modern electronics with processors that will do many millions of calculations in a second. In the MDIA framework the standard performance of a process will make it possible to understand the truvalue of a product that has flowed through multiple processes in the course of its flow through the supply chain.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
