Sarcasm involves saying one thing and meaning the opposite. Adapted from Reader's digest: Very few companies require any physical-fitness program. Everybody gets enough exercise 'jumping' to the conclusion, 'running' late to the meetings, 'dodging' the responsibilities, 'flexing' their muscle to prove their superiority, 'beating' around the bush, 'walking' around the policies, 'fudging' the data, 'painting' the grim picture of the situation and 'fighting' like fools!
Who will Bell the Cat? This is a story about four people named 'Everybody', 'Somebody', 'Anybody' and 'Nobody'. There was an important job to be done and 'Everybody' was asked to do it. 'Everybody' was sure 'Somebody' would do it. 'Anybody' could have done it, but 'Nobody' did it. 'Somebody' got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job. 'Everybody' thought 'Anybody' could do it but 'Nobody' realized that 'Everybody' wouldn't do it. It ended up that 'Everybody' blamed 'Somebody' when 'Nobody' did what 'Anybody' could have done.
HERD MENTALITY: There are many versions of the tale. One version describes it Birbal's way to set the expectations right when Akbar was boasting about his supreme authority and absolute compliance he enjoyed from the public (subject, प्रजा) he ruled. Another version is based on the thought process of humans. Now Akabar-Birbal story: Once Akbar heard that every man thinks differently. He asked Birbal whether it is true or not? Birbal said, "No, Your Majesty! In fact, wise men think alike." Akbar was interested to know more about and said, "Birbal, You will have to prove your saying." The next day, Birbal asked all the attendants of the palace to empty the royal pond. Then he announced to the people in the city to pour a glass of milk in the pond during the night. He also informed Akbar on his act (and what Birbal expected in the pond the next day). The next day morning, Akbar and Birbal went to the pond to see the pond was filled with water. Akbar was surprised and asked Birbal, "Why this pond is filled with water instead of milk?" Birbal politely said, "Your Majesty! Everybody has deliberately poured a glass of water in the pond yesterday night. Because they think all others will pour milk and no one could find that they pour water in the pond." That is why it is said that "Wise men think alike".

When someone comments about you that you get angry easily or there is behavioural instability: the hardcore criminals, rapist, dacoits... are mentally strong and extremely stable otherwise they cannot do what they do! Are they good human beings? Why do you think you tend to distribute roses or sweets all the time? Statements starting with following words are sheer example of deceits and lack of confidence: Honestly speaking, In my frank opinion, Correct me if I am wrong, I may we wrong...
'Experience' is an attribute which is very often confused with knowledge and skill. While ‘knowledge’ defines the relevant information a person might possess, the actual application of the knowledge on real-life examples is the experience. Hence, in a job the experience plays important role because it prepares one to take future challenges. As we gain experience, it build confidence to apply the knowledge he/she has gained though academic and self-learning route to new application and foresee the challenges that might crop up. The analogy is between fresh wine as knowledge and old wine as experience even though the chemical composition of wine remains almost same.
With experience, our knowledge may or may not increase in proportion but our value and capability to serve a particular role increase. While the definition of "most relevant experience" for a job is debatable and varies from person to person, experience and capabilities are two complementary traits to assess a person for "fitness to a role". To a certain extent, a person who has been successful in one domain and gained experience in a particular area of work, it is highly likely that he will succeed another area of work not vastly different from the previous one. For example, a person teaching only algebra for last five years and rated as good tutor is very likely to succeed and be equally effective teacher in calculus or trigonometry if certain minimum qualification criteria are met. Hence, a 'relevant' experience indicates a person's ability to be productive right away similar to "ready-to-serve" food, a person's knowledge and capability defines the slope of time curve which will take him to be ready to deliver expected output.
Reference CAE Inc: These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements about our vision, strategies, plans, market trends and outlook, future revenues, capital spending, expansions and new initiatives, financial obligations, and expected sales. Forward-looking statements normally contain words like believe, expect, plan, intend, continue, estimate, may, will, should, strategy, future and other similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as aim, anticipate, believe, could, expect, intend, may, plan, seek, should, strive and will.
A statement is forward-looking when it uses what we know and expect today to make a statement about the future. By their nature, forward-looking statements require us to make assumptions and are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties associated with our business which may cause actual results in future periods to differ materially from results indicated in forwardlooking statements. Products and services applicable for Simulation and CAE category are similar in many aspects and help companies of all sizes solve their business problems such as reducing product development time. However, pricing setup, and installation differ for businesses of different sizes.
A business case can be justification for any investment or it can an estimate of profit and loss of any new area of oppportunity. The main intent is to seek approval from the project sponsors and other interested parties.
|CFD (Flow and Thermal) simulations are computationally intensive and required not only high computational power, it requires high RAM machine for local processing of data
|Typically, a 32 GB RAM machine can handle models with (tetrahedral) cell counts 20-30 millions with reasonable response time
|Machines with 32 GB RAM take longer time to generate mesh, becomes unresponsive, does not allow to open MS-office programs, cannot be used for intensive post-processing such as generation of animations or velocity vectors on larger models (cells counts > 30 millions)
|Description of Requirement:
|X new machine with RAM size Y GB which act as shared resource to handle key projects requiring large CPU memory
|Reduce manual approach to mesh generation and use automated mesh generation features to reduce lead time
|Reduce usage of server resources and costly solver licenses - local operation require different and cheaper license
|Avoid frequent (soft- and hard-) reboot of machines leading to overload on IT personnel
|Option Identification and Selection:
|Use available cluster or servers to post-process. This leads to blocking of server cores and solver license. Local post-processing will require only cores and no solver license.
|Use existing high-end machine available with team. This is already in practice though only 2 engineers can use in a day and requires high data transfer time
|Queue such projects with longer lead time category and inform customer accordingly
|New machine with 32 GB RAM: INR 0.69 lakh (Dell T40)
|New machine with 128 GB RAM: INR 1.39 lakh (HP Z4)
|Benefit and Limitations:
|This is an incremental cost and is a pre-requisite to meet growing demand from customers. Expected return on investment is in terms of ability to maintain the UT while team is growing.
Step-1: What is the primary purpose? For example, Make information available in a searchable webpage Let others learn from your mistakes Make is a passive source of income Earning for a living i.e. primary source of incom ...
Step-2: Why do you want to do it? For example, To get recognition among general public To contribute to environment and social causes To counter the myths and false narrative ...
As you can see, the statements listed in Step-1 and Step-2 overlap and can be interchanged. Hence, to define the objective, you need to ask yourself, "Why do I want to spend time on such things?".
The next step is to check the market size (number of users, renewal cycle, number of existing players...). For example, if you want to create a YouTube channels on "Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning", the repository of YouTube already have whatever topic one may think of and beyond that. Then, one need to think why a user should come to your channel - that is what "New or Unique offerings" you are going to provide?
Similarly, if you want to start a mechanical engineering blog, you need to understand the size (number) of unique visitors. As per news published in India, approximately 15 lakh engineers graduated in 2021. Out of that, around a lakh would be mechanical engineers. Hence, the maximum potential users for your blog would be four lakhs = 4 [duration of course] x 1 lakh [number of students enrolled for mechanical engineering]. This is too small a number to get any meaningful hits to your website and blogs - excluding similar portals already in active existence. However, the number may easily rise to 50 times if you are dealing with topics on Machine Learning. Not only students from many disciplines but also working professionals make up the potential visitors.
There is limit to multi-tasking and some routine tasks needs to be delegated to subordinates. A clear-cut desription of tasks and instructions are pre-requisite to make the delegation effective. Some examples of delegation are:
|Weekly reporting on ongoing tasks and pipeline. Highlight expected delay, help needed and inputs awaited.
|Create forecast of man-power, hardware (computational resources) and software. Look for internal sources before outsoucing.
|Assess training needs
|Collect information (based on project types) for competency enhancement (tool as well as product) needs
Sometimes delgation of responsibilities are needed to someone outside of the team due to small size of individual teams. The person A managing day-to-day activities with customer may have many colleagues with hyphenated reporting. In such cases, there are very likelyhood of issues with owernship of deliverables from each team member. Let's assume a case where person A is assigned functioanlly a member B who are administratively reporting to different manager C. In this case following can be a division of responsibilities between A and C.
While C is responsible for organizational management such as leave approval, performance appraisal, behavioural training... for B, A is responsible for day-to-day activities for B such as process compliance, status updates, minutes of meetings, weekly or monthly reports...

Reference: Computer-aided engineering (CAE) on AWS empowers engineers to innovate: Today, computer-aided engineering (CAE) is standard in any industry that uses design software to develop new products or to create new features for existing products. CAE allows engineers to perform simulations of a product’s physical properties quickly by eliminating the need to build a physical prototype. Virtually all industries are using CAE in product development processes, including: automotive, aerospace, plant engineering, electronics, energy, and consumer goods.
Realistically simulating a product’s complex geometries and testing those in all conditions requires an immense amount of computing power. CAE simulations require storing and processing large amounts of data. Modern simulation tools, software as a service (SaaS) solvers, and cloud computing, have removed barriers to streamlining the difficult endeavor of CAE. Engineers can now leverage the power and speed of high performance computing (HPC) in the cloud to speed up the standard CAE workflow and significantly reduce the cost and time required for each design iteration cycle.
Reference: ANSYS White Papte: In areas of product engineering, digital transformation is already highly embedded – for example, CAE, CAD and CAM are now "must haves" for every manufacturing enterprise.
My experience while dealing with car sales personnel: Following observations are from buyer's perspective and it may be entirely different from salesman's perspective or understanding of the selling process. Other observations include the impact of second language: use of second language English demonstratively created confusion at many instances and it is better to have someone from buyer side who can converse in the same native language as that of seller.
|Sales Person's Perspective as viewed by Buyer
|The payment of booking amount is not a 100% confirmed decision to go with initial offering
|Push customer to adhere to the initial deal specially revenue or price part
|Used threat to cancel the deal to modify the offering
|Invoice is not likely or even possible until car is delivered and the payment terms and deal is negotiable till final (full) payment is made
|Standard response: "This is not possible as the amount is already invoiced"
|Used threat to cancel the deal to modify the offering
|The offer of exchange of a car "is not linked" with deal to buy the new car
|The offer of exchange of a car "is linked" with deal to buy the new car
|Settlement of car exchanged was done separately and no adjusted in payment made for new car
|The price of accessories received during initial offering is negotiable
|Standard response: "The price is already invoiced and cannot be negotiated"
|No partial purchase of accessories made due to rigid stance by salesman
|It was assumed (not explicit confirmed) that the car can be delivered 1 day after the full payment was made
|It takes minimum 3 days after the payment was made "before noon"
|Car was delivered the second day after full payment as saleman has to meet his personal committment
|Buyer does not have to fully understand the deal or confirm the offerings at the time of booking - friends can be consulted to check utility of optional offerings
|The assumption was that the buyer has fully understood the deal and confirmed everything mentioned in offering document
|Buyer had to unwillingly accept the extended warranty. Cost of accessories was eliminated as described above.

Funny people are seen as more intelligent and skilled. During his presidential campaign, John F. Kennedy faced accusations that his wealthy father was attempting to buy the election. At the 1958 Gridiron dinner, Kennedy addressed those accusations by saying, "I just received the following wire from my generous daddy: Dear Jack, don't buy a single vote more than is necessary. I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for a landslide.

Bahavioural Aspects in Performance Appraisal
Fallacy = mistaken belief - an unsound questionable logic without factual evidence to support it. These are (a)defects that weaken the argument, (b)tend to be quite persausive, (c)Difficult to classify an argument as fallacies. Claims with sweeping words like All (सभी), None (कोइ नहीं), Every (प्रत्येक), Always (सदैव, सर्वदा, हमेशा), Never (कभी नहीं), Everyone (हर कोई, सब लोग) tend to contain some elements of fallacies. These are not inherently and/or necessarily bad arguments - they are deceptively false beliefs and half-truths!
Also known as cognitive distortions, there are inherent weaknesses in human thought-process as well as decision making. Not all decisions we make in our daily life are based on logical evaluation of pros and cons or use of checklists. While crossing the road, we do not try to guess the vehicle speed and time taken to cross the road. Most of the decision makings are based on intuition and heuristics. For example, we tend to 'believe' a good looking person or lady! As a climate is combination of weathers, biases are like 'climate', influenced by personal experiences, conditioning, training, upbringings, social circumstances, education...
|All or nothing (binary) thinking
|Also referred as Polarized Thinking, Black and White Thinking or "my way or high way thinking", this refers to viewing a situation in only two categories rather than on a broader perspective (e.g. classifying events or beliefs as either good (right) or bad (wrong).
|Predicting the future negatively without considering alternative outcomes disqualifying or discounting the positive – telling yourself that positive experiences/ qualities do not count. Usually the person exaggerates (or inappropriately shrink) the importance of insignificant events.
|"If I feel that way, it must be true". Reasoning from how you feel rather than from any evidence.
|Putting a fixed, global label on self or others without considering evidence that would lead to a less disastrous conclusion magnification / minimisation - exaggerating the negative and minimising the positive (blowing things out of proportion or shrinking their importance). It usually involves use of words and language that is highly colored and emotionally loaded.
|Paying undue attention to negative detail rather than seeing the whole picture.
|Making (negative) assumptions about the way in which others think about you when there is no evidence for this.
|Drawing a sweeping conclusions from a single of few incidents and applying it to related and to unrelated situations.
|Relating external events to yourself when there is no basis for making such a connection. It is literally taking everything personally, even when something is not meant in that way.
|Excessive use of 'should' and 'must' as a way of having an overprecise idea of how they and others should behave. Over-estimating the consequences of how bad it would be not to meet these expectations. It often leads to feeling of anger, frustration and resentment.
