BOOK EXCERPT:

An argument for simplicity from the bestselling authors of Profit from the Core Is radical reinvention the key to winning in today’s fast-paced world? Not judging by the results of some of the world’s best-performing companies. In Repeatability, Chris Zook and James Allen—leaders of Bain & Company’s influential Strategy practice—warn that complexity is a silent killer of profitable growth. Successful companies endure by maintaining simplicity at their core. They don’t stray from, or regularly discard, their business model in pursuit of radical renovation. Instead, they build a “repeatable business model” that produces continuous improvement and allows them to rapidly adapt to change without succumbing to complexity. Based on a multiyear study of more than two hundred companies, the book stresses the value of repeatability in business, showing how the “big idea” today is really made up of a series of successful smaller ideas driven by a simple and repeatable business model. Zook and Allen show how some of the world’s best-known firms combine a core differentiation model with speed, adaptability, and simplicity to land them at the top for long periods of time. These firms include: Apple, Danaher, DaVita, IKEA, Nike, Olam, Tetra Pak, Vanguard, and others. CEOs, senior executives, managers, and investors all need to read this book. It’s the new blueprint for reaching the top—and staying there.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The injury potential to pilots may be significantly affected by the inertial properties of helmet-mounted equipment. In order to accurately assess the effects of such equipment, reliable measurements of mass, center of mass, and mass moments of inertia must be obtained. The Manikin Testing Laboratory at the Armstrong Laboratory has developed the Standard Automated Mass Properties (STAMP) system to experimentally determine the inertial properties of various objects. It is necessary to quantitatively determine the accuracy and repeatability of measurements obtained by the STAMP system to confidently use these values in analytical models, in correlations between observed empirical response and the inertial properties of head-mounted equipment, and in determining compliance with inertial properties specifications of new helmet- mounted systems.

Purpose To assess the reproducibility and repeatability of foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area measurements using swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) in healthy subjects. Methods Sixty-four eyes of 64 healthy volunteers were randomly subjected to FAZ area measurements using SS-OCTA by 2 examiners in 2 different sessions. Results The FAZ areas measured by the first and second observer were 0.269 ± 0.092 mm and 0.270 ± 0.090 mm, respectively. Within subjects, the coefficients of variations were 2.44% (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.95% to 2.93%) and 2.66% (95% CI 2.00% to 3.31%) for the first and second observers, respectively. The coefficient of repeatability average measurements of FAZ area were 0.021 mm and 0.024 mm. The intraclass correlation coefficient values were 0.993 (95% CI 0.989 to 0.996) and 0.991 (95% CI 0.986 to 0.995). Interobserver and intraobserver concordance correlation coefficients ranged from 0.998 (95% CI 0.997 to 0.999) to 0.999 (95% CI 0.998 to 0.999) and from 0.989 (95% CI 0.982 to 0.993) to 0.987 (95% CI 0.979 to 0.992), respectively. Conclusions The FAZ area measurements by means of SS-OCTA showed high reproducibility and repeatability in healthy eyes.

Purpose: Evaluating an instrument’s repeatability and agreement are critical when utilizing it in research. The purpose of this thesis was to determine between-visit repeatability of the Discovery System aberrometer and the agreement between measurements made on two different Discovery Systems, a Grand Seiko WAM-5500 autorefractor, and the Complete Ophthalmic Analysis System (COAS-HD) aberrometer. Methods: Twenty-five healthy, young adults participated in two study visits separated by no more than 14 days. At each visit, cycloplegic measurements were made on the right eye. Experiment 1) Five measurements were made using the same Discovery System at two visits. At Visit 2, ten measurements were also made using the Grand Seiko WAM-5500. Discovery System refractive error values were calculated for a 3-mm and 6-mm pupil diameter. Between-visit repeatability and between-instrument agreement were evaluated using difference versus mean plots and calculating the 95% limits of agreement (LoA). Experiment 2) At Visit 2, five measurements were also made on a second Discovery System and the COAS-HD. Instrument order was randomized at each visit. Zernike coefficients were calculated over a 6-mm pupil through the sixth radial order. Between-instrument agreement was assessed using difference versus mean plots and the 95% LoA. Results: The mean age (±SD) and spherical equivalent refractive error were 23.4 ± 1.7 years and -2.91 ± 1.85 D, respectively. Experiment 1) There were no between-visit differences for M, J0, J45, higher-order root mean square (RMS), third-, fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-order RMS (all p > 0.25). Repeatability for defocus and higher-order RMS were ±0.31 D and ±0.095 microns, respectively. For a 3-mm pupil, the Discovery System measured more positive values than the Grand Seiko for M, J0, and J45 (p 0.005). For a 6-mm pupil, there was no difference between instruments for M (p = 0.45). Experiment 2) There were no differences between the two Discovery Systems for fourth- and fifth-order RMS (all p 0.39). There was a difference in third-order RMS (p 0.005, 0.055 microns) and sixth-order RMS (p
