Words: 1034 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 19540133

Gantt chart is "a graphical representation of the duration of tasks against the progression of time"

A project is made up of a set of different tasks and for each task there is an allocated period of completion. For example, a programming project may have the following steps: planning, researching programming language, the actual programming phase, beta testing and final report and release.

In order to follow each of these tasks, a GANTT chart will have each task on the Y-axis and the total period of time in which the project is due, on the X-axis, broken down in units (days, months, etc.). Each task is represented by a horizontal bar, covering the time span. For example, the programming phase may take from 15th of January to 15th of April. After mapping each task on the chart, the horizontal bars are filled to evaluate how much of the project is…… [Read More]

This is important, because it is showing how there is an effective system. For evaluating, the overall scope of the decisions that are being made. However, after a stated amount of time is when everyone will become friendly with all of the applications. This is when you would want to be evaluating the effectiveness of these changes. These different elements are important, because they are illustrating how the Kuali protocol can study and improve upon these transformations. (Hollwaman, 2011) (McNeally, 2011)

Clearly, when using Kuali solutions there will be an emphasis on having everyone work together. In the case of the University of Arizona, they have been utilizing this as a tool to effectively integrate the various departments. The reason why, is because a more gradualist approach is being used to deal with these challenges. This is the point that the various staff members can be integrated as a part…… [Read More]

Criminal Justice Communication Flow of

Words: 932 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 11868797

Horizontal communication is the proverbial 'grapevine' of information, such as gossip between partners. The exchange of information through horizontal channels can impact morale, but not always department policy, at least not as swiftly as in downward or even upward modes of communication. Also, although the power relationships between officers of the same rank may theoretically be clear-cut, this is not always the case -- popularity and reputation can influence the degree to which information is given credence through these horizontal channels. A popular officer who frowns upon racial profiling, for example, will have more influence than an officer who is widely disliked.

Frustrations about not being heard through the channels available in the upward communication process, or miscommunication of message or emotional intention in the downward communication process are common and frequently create interpersonal obstacles that hamper positive change and efficient operations. Confusion may also be rife if there are…… [Read More]

The picture to the left depicts the various elements that are responsible for thermoregulation in human skin. The illustrations shows the various layers of skin along with the veins, arteries and capillaries of the circulatory system that assist in insuring that the thermoregulatory system works properly. The sweat glands are responsible for selectively removing materials from the blood the sweat glands then concentrates or alters these toxins, and secretes them for elimination from the body. The perspiration or sweat is then removed through the sweat pore. This has a twofold purpose: to remove toxins and thermoregulation (in this case cooling the body).

Thermoregulation involving perspiration is brought about by both internal and environmental heat and exercise. As it relates to the latter, there have been many studies related to exercise and thermoregulation. According to Marino (2004)

Corona Modelo Needs to Chart a Course

Corona

Modelo needs to chart a course for the company's future. The longstanding objective is to move Modelo into the top five of brewers in the world. As of 2005, Modelo remained outside of the top six. The company has 52 of the domestic market and is the best-selling imported beer in the United States, 50% ahead of next-best seller Heineken. The most significant underlying problem with respect to global market position relates to the company's ownership structure, specifically whether it will come under the A-B banner eventually or participate in some other way in the ongoing industry consolidation.

Secondary Problems

In the domestic market, Modelo faces a secondary problem in that its leading competitor FEMSA is improving its market position by controlling distribution channels and by promoting high quality subsidiary brands. FEMSA has been gaining market share steadily in Mexico while Modelo has been losing share. The domestic market…… [Read More]

This makes it easier to anticipate likely flood areas and the severity of the flood's impact upon the area.

Multiple data series and frequent measurements are necessary to have a truly scientifically accurate result with predictive powers. "In order to accurately determine streamflow, measurements must be made of its width, depth, and speed (velocity) of the water at many horizontal and vertical points across the stream. To develop a stream-stage/streamflow relation (rating curve), streamflow must be measured at many different stages" and must be recalculated on a regular basis ("How streamflow is measured," USGS, 2008). "Rating curves frequently shift due to changes in the factors that determine the relation between stream stage and streamflow" ("How streamflow is measured," USGS. 2008). These factors include the slope of the stream which affects the water's velocity, the roughness of the channel, the area of the channel at each stream stage, the shifting backwater…… [Read More]

Operations Management Improving a Process

Words: 870 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 63636233



The second area of waste is seen when the customer is asked if they want help for a new product or an existing product, where there is an exiting product query the costumer is taken to a different member of staff. This occurs despite the fact most of the staff have a very good knowledge f the existing products, undertaken as part of their training. This also increases the complexity and staffing requirements of the scheduling to ensure both sections of the store are staffed. It may create a disjointed feeling for the customers who have a query on an existing product; it also increases the costs due to the staff arrangements and lack of inter-changeability when the staff are working.

The last area of inefficiency is seen when a sale is made. If the customer wants a printed receipt it is sent wireless from the hand held sales unit…… [Read More]

Slide 4

In the improved process each of the inefficiencies are improved. The smallest change is with the first weakness, where customers are left alone. A simple change here will be with the sales staff simply informing the customer that if they need help just to let them know; a simple, but small change.

The second change is the biggest change. In the new process once a customer is asked of they would like some help and they tell the sales person what help they need, they are then able to help the customer regardless of whether it is for a sale or for support on an existing product. In the majority of cases the sales people can help, this will reduce the need to differentiate the staff on each shift between sales and support, as they have had the same training. The empowerment of the staff in this way may also increase motivation, as they are able to do more (Mathis and Jackson, 2010). It may also reduce the wasted labor needed to staff

Operation Management Riordan - Supply

Words: 1160 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 70041773

It is natural that suppliers forecast their own demand, and where long-term relationships have developed, there is a greater potential for the supplier to make the loan for cost. Furthermore, where Riordan is a major customer for that supplier, there may be a greater willingness to fulfill the order, and put that customer before smaller competing firms in terms of priority. If Riordan are ordering from a firm they do not regularly use, there will not be the same level of forecasting, and a supplier may need to obtain relevant inputs before making a delivery.

The situation of the supply themselves will also be relevant. Smaller organizations are likely to have more cash constraints, and have a lower level of inventory on hand, as inventories tie up capital. This problem may be particularly pertinent where organizations lack financial stability. If the organization is small, the influence of production constraints may…… [Read More]

Release of Information

A Quality Assurance Indicator and Process for Measuring the Accuracy of Release of Information Requests

According to James F. Keenan (1993), questions about the accuracy of releases of information have assumed increasing prominence in several areas recently, such as the Persian Gulf war, the physical- and mental-health histories of public individuals, the identification of rape victims, and the threat of AIDS. The debates that have resulted have largely been guided by an important insight: the responsibilities that have been entrusted to particular professions contribute to the determination of whether release of information is considered right and proper. Ensuring such "right and proper" releases of information means having in place a system whereby quantifiable aspects of the underlying processes can be periodically reviewed to determine how well it is working. hile the function goes by many names such as quality control, total quality management, and others, the healthcare…… [Read More]

The company prides itself on a very high quality service, looking after customers, allowing the, to try the different products before they buy, as well as providing a high level of after sales service. The impression of high quality starts with the clean crisp image of the shops, and a layout where there are tables set out with the different devoices to allow customers to wonder in and try them without a heavy sales pitch.

To assess and document the process it is possible to create a flow chart. The usual approach is to create a chart which looks at the basic tasks which are undertaken in the process, stating with the customer walking through the door. Although not undertaken in this presentation it is also possible to create a chart to movement or motion chart, which will show where the tasks take place.

Slide 5

The process is being measured by looking at what is done, with the process flowchart written for the tasks undertaken by a member do the sales staff. The process starts when the customer walks into the store. They are greeted by a member of staff at the door, and allowed to browse. After they have browsed for a while a member of staff will ask them if they would like some help. If the customer wishes to continue 'just looking' they are then left to browse, after which they may leave to look for help. Those customers who are looking for help, or answer yes, will then be asked if this is for a new product or an existing product, if it is for a product they already own they will be taken (in person) to an member of staff that deals with the existing purchases.

If the customer is enquiring about a new product, the member of staff will help them in an appropriate manner, if they do not wish to make a purchase the staff member makes sure they have all the information needed and assures them of future help if they need it. This process occurs often, as customers may visit several times before making a purchase. The high quality service helps to encourage a future purchase (Kotler and Keller, 2011). If a purchase is made the sales person will process the payment on a wireless hand held device, and ask the customer if they want the receipt printed or emailed.

Cashman kept his cash flow chart a secret. Why, and what would you have done?

The reason that Cashman gave for keeping his information locked away was: because all of the expenses were accounted for on a real time basis. This meant that any kind of figures that Cashman has available are only accessible to him. In this case, the fact that he continued to keep these number secret, could help highlight how a lack of communication was apparent. As no one wanted to discuss various ways to keep costs as close to Woody's estimate as possible. This would help to establish a culture of secrecy and divisiveness. Over the course of time, this would have a negative effect upon the company, by allowing various challenges to be ignored. Once this took place, it meant that the low cost estimates would no longer be realistic. At which point, a…… [Read More]

Socrates the Context for This

Words: 1475 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 92934541

Socrates believed that defining which of the actions taken by man are good, and which are not, provides man with the definition of piety and impiety. Aristotle also felt that "every action and choice, seem to aim at some good; the good, therefore, has been well defined as that at which all things aim."(Aristotle, 1094a)

Socrates also presents a defense for his actions by asking Euthyphro whether the holy acts that man complete make the gods any better. Euthyphro immediately states no, no, that's not what I mean.

By presenting this defense, Socrates seems to be saying that he is not attempting to blaspheme god, or the gods in any way, instead he is learning what it takes to make himself a better man.

In the end Socrates demonstrates that not even the theologian can provide with certainty what defines piety or impiety. He thereby provides himself a defense against…… [Read More]

You can make the muffins on the weekend and can grab a muffin every morning before you head out of the door during the week.

Janson Medical Clinic

Construct a Pareto diagram for dissatisfaction. What conclusions do you reach?

Creating a Pareto diagram of dissatisfaction shows how poor the overall patient experience is in the Janson Medical Clinic from a care and treatment perspective. As the case indicates that the process for making an appointment is streamlined and easily accomplished, it is not surprising that this aspect of the dissatisfaction metric scores the least. The top three areas that generate the highest levels of patient satisfaction include the ease of getting through on the phone, ease of getting a convenient appointment, and the length of time patients wait to see a physician. The following Pareto analysis illustrates the results.

What is alarming about the performance of the Jansen Medical Clinic from a patient satisfaction perspective is how low seven of the 14 attributes track score. The attributes so critical to delivering an excellent patient experience…… [Read More]

In the article Six Sigma Lessons from Deming, Part 2 by Dr. Anthony Burns discusses the need for having a more egalitarian approach to how quality management is implemented through organizations. He successfully illustrates how the traditional Black Belt model is antiquated and often slows down companies from being able to bring faster change throughout their organizations. This is illustrates throughout the many examples shown of how the various level of Black Belts fail to bring a greater level of quality ownership. He also successfully contrasts the role of Deming in Total Quality Management (TQM) and Six Sigma Black Belt hierarchies, showing how the former brings a greater level of task and change ownership.

His focus on quality being everyone's responsibility shows why TQM is so effective as a technique for insuring greater ownership through an organizations struggling to excel. Juxtapositioning this with the role of Back Belts as quality leaders and experts shows how they are complementary to one another. The author successfully shows the tension between these two areas are often critically important from a conflict standpoint to move an organization forward as well. Finally, the article shows how an organization staffed with exceptional Black Belts is not enough; there needs to also be expertise at change management as well. The ability to bring greater adoption of quality management concepts and its value depend on both.

Dealing Effectively With Organizational Change

Words: 8797 Length: 20 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 50486495



Factors that affect an organization's capacity and willingness to change need to be examined and exploited. Organizational culture, which is a set of shared values and assumptions that are followed by the members of an organization, plays an important role in affecting the attitude of an organization to change. If an organizational history has been unwelcome to change in the past, it is highly unlikely that an organization will be willing to accept change in the future. Sometimes, core competency can assist in the process of change (Porter, 1980).

Lastly, at the individual level, the process of change is completed when it is implemented within a company. The task of the general manager then becomes of envisioning the future of the change and of facilitating cooperation among the workforce. He is also responsible for implementing change at various levels of production, development and distribution. In particular, what needs to be…… [Read More]

Group Philosophy

Create a teaching tool that would help others learn about the core tenets of the educational philosophy of your group.

In education, there are different philosophies which have an impact on the techniques used by teachers. Neo-Scholasticism is taking various religious and philosophical beliefs to have an effect on how someone sees the world around them. This is achieved through dialectical reasoning, gaining knowledge by inference and resolving contradictions. (Hollins, 1964) (Souza, 2007) (Sherman, 1988)

At the same time, there is a focus on a concept called natural philosophy. Under these pillars, it is believed that everything related to God and the world is interconnected. A perfect balance is created when there is an alignment of these concepts. (Hollins, 1964) (Souza, 2007) (Sherman, 1988)

In the field of education, these ideas can be used to create a basic philosophy for reaching out to students. This is achieved by…… [Read More]

As such, the orders will be sent online via email and the bakers will confirm with a reply. The actions should not take as much as to interfere with the previous calculi, but it is important to have a system that announces the bakers when a new order is placed.

E-Manufacturing - A New Link

Ayers (2000, p. 4) describes a supply chain as "Life cycle processes supporting physical, information, financial, and knowledge flows for moving products and services from suppliers to end-users." A supply chain can be short, as in the case of a cottage industry, or quite long and complex as in the manufacture, distribution, and sales of automobiles. In fact, the automobile supply chain has its origin in the mining of the iron ore used to make many of its components.

Forward-looking companies and industries are beginning, now, to leverage the communication power of the Internet to improve their supply chain efficiencies. In the same way that early computers offered improved efficiency within the walls of a company, the promise of "Internet Technologies" (IT) now offers potentially far-reaching positive effects throughout a company's entire manufacturing supply chain. If the changes brought about by an "Internet revolution" such as thin-client technology; seamless integration…… [Read More]

Logical thinking is a big part of the critical thinking process, because it affects how we analyze and process information, communication, and understanding, which is a big part of critical thinking. When a person thinks logically, they use analysis, deduction, induction, and reasoning in both abstract and concrete forms, in order to make a logical, educated decision about a problem or other information. It attempts to uncover the reasoning and characteristics of the problem to devise a solution -- a solution that is rational and makes sense, rather than simply making a quick, snap decision. Logical thinking occurs in a sequence of steps, and leads to a more objective view. This view does not depend on emotion or emotional decisions; they are instead rational and well thought out.

Dysfunctional Team

Bill's team has a problem with its organizational culture. It emphasizes procedure over workplace culture and thus the team has no real team spirit or spirit of mission. The organizational culture has to be better effected.

The problem is a group function, which can be rooted in leadership -- but because Bill has just taken over it is difficult to place blame there. He is currently assessing the situation. However, because the group consists of "individuals" who do not really get along, there is no real "group function" -- and this is consistent with the lack of workplace culture.

A leadership problem would emanate in negative ways -- such as narcissism from the leader, negative feelings, cruelty, a lack of communication, a lack of empathy, a lack of care about how his attitude impacts his followers and the overall success of the organization.

The company should not manage the supply chain in separate tiers as it has been doing. Instead, it should use sophisticated data analysis in real time. For instance, the company should appoint one person to carry out end-to-end performance for delivering improvements for the projects between different tiers and its traditional functions like procurement, marketing, and manufacturing. Finally, (Pei et al. 2016) has stated explained that Boxer Pumps Limited needs to set standards of performance. With this strategy, it should allocate incentives to the supply chain to deliver the most value for the business while checking on the risks involved. In such a case, the company should learn how to use not just capital, service and cost, but should include the needs of the business, the market segments, and the product.

Security will be discussed later in this analysis.

The second factor used to evaluate closed source vs. open source DBMS are the application development environments that each has. Closed source vendors have turned application development environments into revenue-producing lines of business (Worthen, Kiviniemi, 2009). As a result, closed database vendors have a slight edge in the areas of application development. There are also the initiatives of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) and distributed application use by closed database vendors Microsoft and Oracle. The integration and use of application development is also a key catalyst for closed source…… [Read More]

Another factor that must be taken into consideration is represented by the business etiquette in China. Business etiquette in this country is significantly different than that of Western countries, but it is similar to other Asian countries. The analysis of business etiquette is based on the cultural dimensions that characterize the Chinese population. Same as in the case of other Asian cultures, China has a high long-term orientation, which means that the country's population has a strong attitude on persevering. Also, there is a high level of power and wealth inequality within the society. The Chinese culture is a collectivist one, and businessmen should refer to this fact in their meetings with Chinese partners (International Business Center, 2008).

The differences between the business etiquette in China and those in other countries refer to aspects like the appearance and clothing style, the behavior at meeting, offering and receiving gifts, and communications.…… [Read More]

The study further discusses the sub-categories of model transformation that include:

hybrid transformation tools, graph transformation, relational, template based, operational based, structure driven and direct manipulation.

All the sub-categories of model transformation have the following features:

Hybrid transformation combines two or more transformation approaches;

Graph transformation focuses on graph rewriting over variation and extensions of labeled graphs.

Relational approach uses declarative approach-based mathematical relations; template approach uses model template specifications.

ATL Transformation Tool

teacher has in helping students develop their writing. Traditional methods of grading and scoring children's writing are being replaced in the modern educational system with feedback and constructive criticism of the work, rather than a trophy grade or labeling score. This study reviews literature previously compiled on the subject of feedback in the development of children's writing, as well as conducting original research with a small group of students and teachers that helps evaluate the role of feedback in writing, as well as determining what types of feedback are the most effective.

(Murphy 1996) Education is an ongoing process, and even the…… [Read More]

Learner in Monitoring His/Her Own Learning Progress

The following are various ways I use to make learning effective by helping the pupil to monitor their own learning. These approaches encourage positive relationships in the class environment and enhance the emotional well-being of the learners. They also encourage learners to participate in the class activity. Effective application of these qualities depends on how well I have combined them with pedagogical skills and other appropriate behavior management strategies that are tailored for the learners in focus. This section describes a number of these pedagogical skills (Cooper & Cefai, 2013).

Pedagogical skills
