AD1 Global Purchases Strategic 10-Acre Palm Bay Parcel

Hollywood, FL, July 26, 2017 –(PR.com)– AD1 Global announced today that it has purchased an approximately 10-acre tract of land in the heart of Palm Bay, Florida, for hotel and commercial development.

The project envisages two hotels and several retail shops and restaurants adjacent to the current Space Coast Harley-Davidson Dealership and Bass Pro shop located on Sportsman’s Lane off I-95, via exit 176.

One planned hotel is a 90 room Home2 Suites by Hilton and the other a 100 room yet-to-be-named nationally known brand.

“These are both select service hotels that will offer contemporary accommodations and modern design,” said AD1 CEO Daniel Berman.

Palm Bay is perfectly situated near Florida’s strategic central east coast, midway between Jacksonville and Miami. The city is also close to the Melbourne and Orlando International Airports, Kennedy Space Center and Port Canaveral, which puts it at the cross-roads for business and leisure travel.

“We feel that this area in Florida has great investment potential and we foresee considerable growth for the Space Coast in support of the tourism, Military, Space and the Healthcare industry,” added Berman.

Palm Bay is the largest city in Brevard County and 2nd largest city in Central Florida but is only 30% built-out (according to the Palm Beach Development Authority). This offers a very high potential for growth, innovation and opportunities for businesses.

Forbes ranks Palm Bay as “America’s 15th Fastest-Growing City in 2017.”

AD1 Global has successfully been expanding its portfolio with recent hotel acquisitions and land purchases, including a 59-acre development planned for the red-hot Orlando/Disney World area. The company also entered the Georgia market for the first time, with the Q1 take-over of the Holiday Inn Savannah S. I-95 S Gateway.

“We are positioning ourselves for success by identifying the best opportunities in key growth markets in the Southeast and possibly beyond,” said Berman.

Palm Bay is known for its many parks and pristine waters and is sometimes referred to as the “bass fishing capital of the world,” which is why recreational giant Bass Pro Shops selected Palm Bay as home for its newest store, the “Stick Marsh Outpost;” but the aerospace industry is the key component of the local economy.

Many of the nation’s premiere aeronautical business’s and military contractors call this area home and serve the needs of NASA, SpaceX and its diverse contractors.

“With the successful collaboration between NASA and SpaceX, commercial space flight could fuel an economic revolution, not only here but in the rest of the state and perhaps the nation,” said Berman.

About AD1 Global:
AD1 Global is a hospitality development and management company located in Hollywood, Florida. The company excels in all facets of the hospitality industry, ranging from the acquisition of existing hotels, new developments, renovations and daily operations.

To Go for a Six Sigma or a Lean Six Sigma Certification?

ALPHARETTA, Ga.July 26, 2017PRLog — It should go without saying that Six Sigma produces some amazing results for those who implement it within their organizations. Since 1986, it’s helped make companies like Motorola, Amazon, Boeing and 3M household names. That’s probably why you’re looking to get certified in Six Sigma. Not only will it make you a more valuable asset to your employer, but it will also make you a more attractive candidate to other companies too.

Six Sigma vs. Lean Six Sigma Certification

That being said, if you’ve been researching Six Sigma, you probably know that Lean Six Sigma is also a powerful option. So which one should you pick?

Well, first, it’s important you understand the difference between the two.

Both essentially have the same goal: to improve business processes so there are fewer defects. In order to reach Six Sigma levels, your company must keep defects to just 3.4 per million.

However, Six Sigma does this by looking for variations that could be leading to these defects. Lean Six Sigma adherents hunt for wasteful activities—any that don’t directly add value to the finished product—in order to find the problem.

Do You Have the Need for Speed?

Therefore, if you need to choose between getting certified in either Six Sigma or Lean Six Sigma, a big point to consider is what your company’s needs are regarding efficiency. Does your company need to get through business processes faster? Perhaps you’re already at Six Sigma levels—or comfortably close—but you could really use a higher output.

In that case, Lean Six Sigma makes the most sense. It will focus you on eight main types of waste that may be costing your company in time and/or money. These are things like:

·         Rework to correct defects, errors and mistakes

·         Excessive movement of people, materials, supplies or documents

·         Failing to optimize the skills and knowledge of your workforce

With these types of bottlenecks out of the way, your company can effectively produce at a faster pace. Provided you don’t succumb to more errors, the net positives will be astonishing.

Lowering Defects

On the other hand, your company may benefit much more from maintaining its current production pace—or speed of some other business process in question—but greatly reducing the defects that get produced.

If that’s the case, Six Sigma is much more appropriate at the moment. It’s also worth mentioning that Six Sigma has evolved considerably since it was first introduced in the 80s, so it’s not as though this methodology no longer stands the test of time.

A Future That Includes Both

Getting certified in either Six Sigma or Lean Six Sigma is no small thing. It will take a lot of time and dedication on your part. However, it’s also worth considering that, more and more, organizations are looking to leverage both versions of this powerful approach. While that doesn’t mean you necessarily need to get certified in both, you’d be wise to get a certificate in one and at least understand the other.

Joel Costonis, President & Founder of Advanced Concepts & Engineering, LLC Calls It Like It is: "Total Automation, Total Integration Protocol. An Inevitable Reality"

Joel Costonis, President & Founder of Advanced Concepts & Engineering, LLC Calls It Like It is: “Total Automation, Total Integration Protocol. An Inevitable Reality”

Gorham, ME, July 26, 2017 –(PR.com)– Through the progress of industry, evolution and technical progress, there are those that follow, those that lead, and then a smaller group; those that define.

Joel Costonis is the President & Founder of Advanced Concepts & Engineering, LLC. [or ACE]. ACE is a company that was founded to overcome the technological deficiencies of the quality control world in the aggregate industry. More specifically, ACE has successfully engineered a line of products that fully automate aggregate testing procedures while fully integrating the source of the raw data with the desired calculated output in user format with no user interaction. Not to mention the fact that all data is available live through the cloud.

“Our Total Integration, Total Automation Protocol is the basis for all we do. The trademarked TITAP [serial # 87140947] is the future. Regardless of your industry, task and/or objective, Total Automation Total Integration is an inevitable reality,” Costonis states.

The important acknowledgement that Costonis makes is that ultimate objective is not to replace technical staff members, but to – in his words – empower them. “By introducing full automation combined with full data integration, our engineering technical staff is far more effective and efficient by being able to proof, confirm, deliver and act on data in a time frame that will reduce the standard by as much as 60%. While most automation equipment is programmed with whatever the required parameters are, or should be, no machine or computer is infallible.

“Indeed, there are companies out there that are producing widgets under 100% automation, but without human eyes or hands over seeing the end results, those are companies that choose quantity over quality.

“In the industry of which my company operates, indeed our products operate in adherence with ASTM standards, I would never suggest that the technician is removed from the equation. When one is using equipment that automates a process, it should be anticipated that there will be considerable gains in both quantity, and quality, by the simple virtue that the operator, technician or engineer now has upwards of 60% of their demanded time free to offer increased diligence on the quality or additional testing.”

He goes on to say, “…the level of importance of the accuracy of the raw production data, the derived data; the time it takes to get said facts, while also needing to get the data to all appropriate locations is crucial. Looking specifically at the aggregate industry, the quality control data needs to be available as fast as possible where even under full automation, there is an estimated 45 minutes, to over an hour lag in the result stream where production rates can exceed 600 tons per hour. Back when I was overseeing production and quality control, the data stream on aggregate testing needed to go back to the quarry, to the asphalt plant, to the road and corporate at the same time and in short order.”

Costonis explains a brief study as relates the hot mix industry, “If my crusher is producing 2,000 gross tons production per hour and a regular test takes 2+ hours, I made 4,000 tons of material without verification of what I produced until I already produced said product. If my hot mix plant produces 600 tons per hour, I sent 1,200 tons through before testing was completed. Is there any logic to that? I don’t think so. Our product line guided by the TITAP reduced testing time by upwards of 60%. At this point, its simple mathematics that show the reduced exposure with full automation and full integration.”

While discussing industry in general, Costonis – who designs all products from Advanced Concepts – offers a strong statement, “…I don’t care what industry you’re in, what you produce, what your production demands are; full automation is here. You’re either adopting automation, or your lack thereof will likely lead to your company’s demise.

“Further compounding the issue, the biggest problem in industry around the world is the fact that over 90% of automation improvements are in the production side of the house. Fantastic, now you can produce 1,000,000 widgets a day, but with a 40% failure rate. Someone please answer me this, at what point in time does the quality control sector get automated and integrated to be able to keep up with the rates of production offered by automated facilities?”

It is clear that Costonis has positioned Advanced Concepts & Engineering to deliver the solution to the aggregate quality control industry through the roll out of his product line, “I can only hope that other industries will adapt. Who knows, we just might be able to offer solutions to other industries should the request arise.”
