A Study of Search engines and its influence on youth information skimming behaviors by Ravneet Bhandari, Himani Sharma Abstract: The individuals today are highly dependent on internet which is built on data and access to relevant data perhaps lead to various financial as well as non financial advantages. The human hunger for information has prompted the development of online Search engines over recent couple of years and are most broadly utilized instruments in the contemporary world. This research paper focuses on the various elements of search engines on information skimming behaviour of young users and tried to explore the impact of search engines on information skimming behavior of young users. Structured questionnaire was used to gather data. The results obtained indicated that elements associated to search engines i.e. relevant results obtained on the result page, comprehensive structure of the search engines, free access to search engines and latest updates available on search engines in terms of data positively affects the information skimming behavior of users. To scrutinize the findings based on identified variables by literature review. The information was accumulated through structured questionnaire from 313 respondents which were chosen by straightforward random sampling technique for the most part from the National Capital Region (NCR) of Delhi in India. The information gathered from the respondents was loaded on SAS university edition for exploratory factor examination and T test analysis. Keywords: Search engines; Information skimming behaviour; Information needs; Informativernattitudern.
Consideration of Skills in Assembly Lines and Seru Production Systems by Md Abdullah, Gursel A. Suer Abstract: Seru production system is the modern version of manufacturing strategy evolved from Toyota Production System (TPS), Just-in-Time (JIT) and Lean. It has been found in recent research works that for a product that has high skill variation and short life cycle, it is useful to use seru manufacturing system. Since this approach is relatively new, there are fewer guidelines regarding when to use seru in contrast with classical assembly line. In this study, worker skill levels have been considered to gain insight about selection of manufacturing strategy between classical assembly line and seru. In this study, 7 skill levels from 1 to 7 for workers have been considered and it is assumed that the skill levels are normally distributed. Based on the output, and high standard deviation value for skill levels it is found that when the standard deviation of worker skills are high then it is better to use classical assembly line. On the other hand, if workers are highly skilled at all tasks it is better to use seru. Keywords: Seru cell; Assembly Line; worker skill level; mathematical modeling.
