Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Motivators: A Study of the Industrial Sector   Order a copy of this article
    by Poonam Kaushik 
    Abstract: Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is considered a strategic need for every organisation for getting the success, to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the resources, reduction of cost, improve the performance and long term sustainability of the organisation. This article aims to identify the most vital motivator factor that influence the outsourcing of recruitment and selection process and perception of employers regarding RPO motivators in the industrial sector. The sample has been collected from 400 respondents (200 employers each from service and manufacturing sector) for the study, by using convenience sampling method. For this purpose, analysis was done by using descriptive statistics, confirmatory factor analysis through AMOS software and independent sample t-test. After analysis, it is found that strategic factor is the most significant factor that influences recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) in the industrial sector among four factors economic, strategic, innovative and quality factor. Significant difference was found among employers perception towards recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) regarding innovative and quality factor across type of industry.
    Keywords: recruitment process outsourcing; RPO; recruitment process outsourcing motivators; manufacturing sector; service sector; India.

  • New models for the two-sided assembly line balancing problem   Order a copy of this article
    by Meriem Mejri, Sana Bouajaja, Hatem HADDA, Najoua Dridi 
    Abstract: In this paper, we are interested in the two-sided assembly line balancing problem. This type of configuration is typically used to produce large-size high-volume products such as those in the automotive industry. We consider the minimisation of the line cycle time. We propose two mathematical models for this problem: a mixed integer linear programming model and a constraint programming model. A comparative study shows the efficiency of our models and the complementary between linear programming and constraint programming. The study also indicates that the density of precedence relations between the tasks determines the instances' hardness.
    Keywords: line balancing; two-sided assembly line; mixed integer linear programming; MILP; constraint programming.
