Scheduled Personal Property
Most home insurance policies limits coverage for personal items such as jewelry, electronics, furniture, household items and clothing. If you own these types of high-value items, your insurance may give you the option of choosing from standard, actual cash value or replacement cost coverage. If you have unique items, such as artwork or antiques, you ll want to discuss with your insurance agent how to best document and insure those items.
Pareto: A means of sorting data. For example, the number of quality faults by frequency of occurrence. An analysis that compares cumulative percentages of the rank ordering of costs, cost drivers, profits, or other attributes to determine whether a minority of elements have a disproportionate impact. Another example: identifying that 75% of a set of independent variables is responsible for 85% of the effect. Also see: 85/75 Rule.
Scanlon Plan: A system of group incentives on a companywide or plantwide basis that sets up one measure that reflects the results of all efforts. The Scanlon plan originated in the 6985s by Joe Scanlon and MIT. The universal standard is the ratio of labor costs to sales value added by production. If there's an increase in production sales value with no change in labor costs, productivity has increased while unit cost has decreased.
Plan-Do-Check-Action (PDCA): In quality management, a four-step process for quality improvement. In the first step (plan), a plan to affect improvement is developed. In the second step (do), the plan is carried out, preferably on a small scale. In the third step (check), the effects of the plan are observed. In the last step (action), the results are studied to determine what was learned and what can be predicted. The plan-do-check-act cycle is sometimes referred to as the Shewhart cycle (Walter A. Shewhart discussed the concept in his book Statistical Method from the Viewpoint of Quality Control) and as the Deming circle (W. Edwards Deming introduced the concept in Japan the Japanese subsequently called it the Deming circle). Synonym: Shewhart Cycle.
Also see: Deming Circle.
Demand Supply Balancing: The process of identifying and measuring the gaps and imbalances between demand and resources in order to determine how to best resolve the variances through marketing, pricing, packaging, warehousing, outsource plans, or some other action that will optimize service, flexibility, costs, assets, (or other supply chain inconsistencies) in an iterative and collaborative environment.
Profitable to Promise: This is effectively a promise to deliver a certain order on agreed upon terms, including price and delivery. Profitable to Promise (PTP) is the logical evolution of Available to Promise (AtP) and Capable to Promise (CTP). While the first two are necessary for profitability, they aren't sufficient. For enterprises to survive in a competitive environment, profit optimization is a vital technology.
Insurance and all other industries are ranked based on their AUM -weighted average 8-month return for all the .-listed ETFs that are classified by as being mostly exposed to those respective industries. In addition to price performance, the 8-month return assumes the reinvestment of all dividends during the last 8 months. If an ETF’s industry classification changes, it will affect the 8-month return calculations. The calculations exclude inverse ETFs.
Umbrella is a type of insurance that provides additional coverage above your homeowners, auto or boat policies. Unlike most types of insurances, it can also help with legal challenges, such as libel, false arrest or slander. Some use umbrella insurance to help protect them against costs stemming from liability or other associated lawsuits. If something unfortunate happens on your property and you end up owing $655,555 in liability but only have $855,555 covered by your homeowners insurance, personal umbrella insurance might cover the other $855,555.
Quality Function Deployment (QFD): A structured method for translating user requirements into detailed design specifications using a continual stream of what-how matrices. QFD links the needs of the customer (end user) with design, development, engineering, manufacturing, and service functions. It helps organizations seek out both spoken and unspoken needs, translate these into actions and designs, and focus various business functions toward achieving this common goal.

Outsourced Cost-of-Goods Sold: Operations performed on raw material outside of the responding entity's organization that would typically be considered internal to the entity's manufacturing cycle. Outsourced cost-of-goods sold captures the value of all outsourced activities that roll up as cost-of-goods sold. Some examples of commonly outsourced areas are assembly, test, metal finishing or painting, and specialized assembly process.
Return Material Authorization or Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA): A number usually produced to recognize and give authority for a faulty (perhaps) good to be returned to a distribution center or manufacturer. A form generally required with a warranty/return which helps the company identify the original product and the reason for the return. The RMA number often acts as an order form for the work required in repair situations, or as a reference for credit approval.
Historical homes, especially if the home is in an official historic district or registered as a historic home, may require repairs to meet stringent standards that may not be covered by insurance. For example, many insurances may not pay to replace lath and plaster walls or full-dimension vintage lumber. You may also find it difficult to cover custom molding, stained glass windows and solid wood doors. If you own or plan to buy a historic home, you ll want to shop for an insurance company that will provide full replacement coverage.
Distribution: Outbound logistics, from the end of the production line to the end user. The activities associated with the movement of material, usually finished goods or service parts, from the manufacturer to the customer. These activities encompass the functions of transportation, warehousing, inventory control, material handling, order administration, site and location analysis, industrial packaging, data processing, and the communications network necessary for effective management. It includes all activities related to physical distribution, as well as the return of goods to the manufacturer. In many cases, this movement is made through one or more levels of fieldwarehouses. Synonym: Physical Distribution. The systematic division of a whole into discrete parts having distinctive characteristics.
Acceptance Sampling: 6) The process of sampling a portion of goods for inspection rather than examining the entire lot. The entire lot may be accepted or rejected based on the sample even though the specific units in the lot are better or worse than the sample. There are two types: attributes sampling and variables sampling. In attributes sampling, the presence or absence of a characteristic is noted in each of the units inspected. In variables sampling, the numerical magnitude of a characteristic is measured and recorded for each inspected unit this type of sampling involves reference to a continuous scale of some kind. 7) A method of measuring random samples of lots or batches of products against predetermined standards.
Total Supply Chain Response Time: The time it takes to rebalance the entire supply chain after determining a change in market demand. Also, a measure of a supply chain's ability to change rapidly in response to marketplace changes.
Calculation: [Forecast Cycle Time] + [Re-Plan Cycle Time] + [Intra-Manufacturing Re-Plan Cycle Time] + [Cumulative Source/Make Cycle Time] + [Order Fulfillment Lead Time]
If an expert determines that the risk of identification is greater than very small, the expert may modify the information to mitigate the identification risk to that level, as required by the de-identification standard. In general, the expert will adjust certain features or values in the data to ensure that unique, identifiable elements no longer, or are not expected to, exist. Some of the methods described below have been reviewed by the Federal Committee on Statistical Methodology 66 , which was referenced in the original preamble guidance to the Privacy Rule de-identification standard and recently revised.
Full Replacement Cost Coverage
Imagine a house fire that damages your home and will cost $755,555 to restore, but you only receive $655,555 worth of assistance. Full replacement cost coverage can help close gaps between what the insurance is willing to pay compared to the actual cost of repairs. If you own an upgraded, historic or older home you ll want to consider adding this type of coverage. This type of coverage is also available for personal property.
There is no specific professional degree or certification program for designating who is an expert at rendering health information de-identified. Relevant expertise may be gained through various routes of education and experience. Experts may be found in the statistical, mathematical, or other scientific domains. From an enforcement perspective, OCR would review the relevant professional experience and academic or other training of the expert used by the covered entity, as well as actual experience of the expert using health information de-identification methodologies.
Amica is one of the highest-rated home insurance companies, according to consumer polls, even polls of those who have filed claims. However, we were not able to complete the quote process without submitting a valid social security number, which we do not supply for testing. We did not include it in the side-by-side comparison, but it is one to consider. Chubb Insurance is worth investigating if you need to insure an expensive, unique property or a historic home.
