  • Labor productivity improvement using hybrid Maynard Operation Sequence Technique and Ergonomic assessment   Order a copy of this article
    by Medha LNU, Sharath Kumar Reddy, Vimal KEK, Aravind Raj Sakthivel, Jayakrishna Kandasamy 
    Abstract: Productivity measures how efficiently productions inputs, such as labor and capital, are being used in an economy to produce a given level of output. With growing competition across the globe, contemporary organizations are under pressure to exploit the untapped potential of the labour. Maynard Operation Sequence Technique (MOST) is a work measurement system that can be easily implemented and practically maintained. The basic ergonomic analysis was also conducted for understanding the interactions among the labour and other elements of a system to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. In this article, MOST is used for time measurement study and minimization of fatigue among the operators by using ergonomics in a stamping unit. The primary objective of this review was to reduce the motion of a task in order to reduce the effort and time to perform the task to achieve higher production and better service level by the ergonomic approach. Ergonomics accounts the user's capabilities and limitations to ensure that tasks, functions, information, and environment suit each operator in any organization. Scoring sheets approach was used in conducting ergonomics study to decide the fitness of any unit on the basis safety and posture analysis of the operator. The hybrid approach (MOST-Ergo) can be used to improve the productivity of any organization by reducing the time and fatigue consumed by the operator during the operation.

  • Context-sensitive contrastive feature-based opinion summarization of online reviews   Order a copy of this article
    by Lavanya Sk, Parvatha Varthini 
    Abstract: Online reviews discuss one product at a time. It becomes a time consuming process for a user to compare and contrast two or more products. Contrastive Opinion Summarization was introduced to help users by producing a useful contrastive summary. A new COS approach called Context-Sensitive Contrastive Opinion Summarization is introduced in this paper. This method extracts feature and opinions of a product based on context term in a sentence and compare them with opinions of another product to develop a brief summary comprising of contrastive feature-opinion pair. Traditional COS methods rely on content similarity and contrastive similarity functions based on simple semantic term matching using WordNet. To perform in-depth semantic analysis, more advanced similarity functions are needed. A clustering algorithm is proposed which adds context- similarity into PLSA model in semantic term matching by incorporating context priors from Conceptnet. In addition the algorithm attempts to align contrastive feature-opinion pair in each cluster to generate a contrastive summary about different products. Compared to previous methods, the proposed model can integrate context sensitivity and better align the contrastive opinion pair for producing better arguments summary. Experimental were conducted over the benchmark UCI Machine Learning Repository Car Data Sets and the results exhibit the usefulness of the context- similarity over the baseline content similarity and contrastive similarity measures.

  • Owner-managers perceptions of corporate social responsibility practices within small and medium-sized accounting firms - an Australian study   Order a copy of this article
    by Sujana Adapa, Josie Fisher 
    Abstract: This article explores conceptualisations of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR); perceptions of its importance; and practices implemented by owner-managers of Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Australia. Qualitative in-depth interview data was obtained from 17 owner-managers of small and medium-sized accounting firms operating in Sydney. Inductive content analysis was conducted by the researchers to identify the concepts and themes of importance by using Leximancer qualitative text analytical software. The results revealed that the owner-managers of these firms were aware of the basics of social responsibility and recognised that the adoption of responsible business practices contributes to business success. The owner-managers perceptions of the practices of CSR varied based on the firm size that resulted in the emergence of an additional category of family-owned firms. Additionally, a subset of small micro-sized firms also emerged on the basis of their CSR practices and unique orientations towards the concept of CSR as highlighted by the owner-managers of the accounting firms in Sydney. As outlined by the owner-managers of the small and medium-sized firms in the study, retaining market position seemed to be critical in the adoption of CSR practices in accounting firms. Thus, a majority of the small and medium-sized accounting firms included in the study sample seemed to adopt reactive CSR practices to retain their market position, although very few engaged in following proactive CSR practices.

  • Mechanical Integrity of PEEK Bone Plate in Internal Fixation of Femur: Experimental and Finite Element Analysis Towards Performance Measurement   Order a copy of this article
    by Navid M.P.Davani.K, ELANGO NATARAJAN, Balaji Raghavendaran Hanumandarao, Sivakumar Paramasivam 
    Abstract: Internal fixation is a surgical method used to stabilize the fractured bone in order for a proper callus formation. Many materials, including stainless steel and titanium, have been used in prosthetic plates. The studies show problems associated with the use of metals plates due to mismatch of stiffness of the bone and prosthetic plate. The effect of this phenomenon, called stress shielding could be seen not only at the healing region but also in the entire bone itself. Therefore, modern materials, especially polymers, with a stiffness close to the human bone have been devised to transfer more compressive stress to the bone. Of the existing biomaterials, PEEK (poly-ether-ether-ketone), has become an excellent alternative to metal plates. The aim of this research is to investigate the effectiveness of PEEK plate in stress transformation into the fractured bone and to conduct performance measurement between PEEK and Steel. Uniaxial tensile test and fatigue tests are conducted as per ASTM standards to measure mechanical properties such as tensile strength, modulus of elasticity and fatigue strength. The measured mechanical properties of PEEK are further applied in finite element analysis to measure the stress transformation between plate and femur bone. Fatigue analysis is also carried and the simulation results reveal that PEEK plate is more desirable in terms of reducing stress shielding in the femur than that of stainless steel. Taguchis single response analysis is used to optimize the process parameter and material selection. The weight reduction and cost reduction are also observed. It is perceived from the Taguchi analysis that the PEEK is the best appropriate selection than SS316L for stress transformation in to the fractured bone in inducement of principal stress and shear stress point of view. A graph between principal/shear stresses and material/distances are plotted to verify the input dependency. It is evident from the plots that the PEEK performs well at initial and decreases at later, which is due to more negative stress.

  • A literature review on the anomalies observed in the newsvendor ordering behaviour   Order a copy of this article
    by S. Yamini 
    Abstract: In a classical newsvendor setting, the retailer places an optimal order quantity by finding a trade-off between overstocking and understocking of products. However, it has been observed that the managers do not always order an optimal quantity while making inventory decisions, due to influence of various behavioural biases. Infact, the evidences say the experienced managers also exhibit this tendency. In the early 2000s, researchers in the area of behavioral economics have taken roots to analyse the behavioral dynamics influencing the inventory ordering decisions in newsvendor settings. Later, a large number of research studies has focused its attention on understanding the cognitive biases and heuristics involved in the process of inventory decisions. The research has then progressed in the direction of understanding the role of learning dimensions and information acquisition in making better inventory decisions. Further, researchers have also found if the individual heterogeneity such as gender differences, cultural differences, and hierarchical differences influence the ordering pattern of individuals. Infact, few research studies focus on the impact of cognitive reflection and other individual traits on the stocking decisions of the newsvendor. Another class of literature looks at the anomalies observed in various non-conventional newsvendor settings such as newsvendor ordering multiple items, simultaneously setting the price while ordering and placing order when the competition prevails. This article provides a detailed summary of the research progress in the behavioural newsvendor problem. It also provides a framework of the existing literature and identifies the research gaps to point to future research possibilities and priorities. The framework gives a systematic approach to confirm the existence of a substantial scope of research opportunities and points to specific areas for further research.

  • A development in the existing Non-Linear model and to study its impact on the Nash equilibrium in a two-person non-zero sum game   Order a copy of this article
    by Sarin Abraham, Punniyamoorthy M 
    Abstract: A non-zero sum two-person game can be formulated as a non-linear program problem for finding the Nash equilibrium. Although intensive research has been done in developing methods for solving such non-linear problems, very less work has been done in modifying the existing model in order to generate a more refined Nash solution. The study focuses on modifying the nonlinear programming model by incorporating some additional constraints and analyzing if the altered model would generate a better result. The utility of the additional constraints is discussed, in terms of the payoff received by either of the players, for different problem situations.

    Abstract: The role of corporate sustainability in driving business performance has been well researched in the case of big corporations for developed nations. But in the case of small and medium enterprises (SME) very limited research has been conducted to explore the business benefit derived out of sustainable business practices. In spite of their contribution to the economy, most of the SMEs fail to maintain a sustainable growth path in the long run. The current paper tries to estimate how effective utilization of their business network and government intervention influences the growth of SMEs through their sustainability performance. A self-administered questionnaire was developed and responses were collected from 200 SMEs in and around Kolkata. The data was analysed using Partial Least Square techniques of Structural Equation Modeling in SPSS. Results showed that both government intervention and network utilisation positively influence business growth of SMEs through their social and environmental sustainability. Also, the size of capital investment has a moderating effect on the strength of this relationship. The practical implication of the model in the Indian context has also been discussed along with future research possibilities

    by Diana Jeba Jingle, Mano Paul P 
    Abstract: Wireless Mesh Network is an evolving next generation multi-hop broadband wireless technology. Collaborative attacks are more severe at the transport layer of such networks where the transmission control protocol's three-way handshake process is affected with the intention to bring the network down by denying its services. In this paper, we propose a novel Collaborative Defense Protocol (CDP) which uses a handshake-based verification process and a collaborative flood detection and reaction process to effectively carry out the defense. This protocolpresentsa group of monitors that collaboratively entail in defending the attack; thus reduces the burden on a single monitor. Moreover, this paper proposes a novel transport layer Post-connection flooding attack that occurs after establishing a TCP connection and we show that CDP can detect and mitigate this attack.The CDP protocol has been implemented in Java and its performance has been evaluated using essential metrics. We show that CDP is efficient and reliable and it can identify the attack before any major damage is occurred.

  • Reliable Energy Preserving Cluster Based Routing Policy with Optimal Route Selection for Wireless Sensor Networks   Order a copy of this article
    by Yasotha S M, Gopala Krishnan V 
    Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is one of the hottest research areas, owing to its wider applicability. Due to its effectiveness and inexpensiveness, most of the domains enjoy the benefits of WSN. However, WSN still combats with the major issue, which is energy efficiency. Though WSN is capable of performing numerous activities, the energy stringency controls the actual functionality of WSN. Energy conservation is the crucial requirement of WSN and this paper attempts to propose an energy preserving cluster based routing policy for WSN. The underlying roots of the proposed approach are clustering approach and optimal route selection. The sensor nodes are clustered and the cluster leader is selected by means of trust level of the nodes. The optimal route selection is performed by cuckoo search algorithm. The performance of the proposed routing policy is analysed and evaluated in terms of packet delivery rate, latency, energy consumption and network lifetime. The proposed approach shows better network lifetime than the existing approaches.

    Abstract: The increased popularity of mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) is only due to their unique characteristics. It requires highly efficient mechanisms, in order to cope with the dynamically changing topologies. The environmental changes in turn increase the complexities of algorithms used to maintain the topology. A keen analysis of network scenarios is required to maintain a balanced network in all aspects. A centralized monitoring system can address this issue up to a tolerable level. But, that in turn increases the risk of one point failure as well as the problems due to unavailability. The main goal of this work is to propose a secure, environment-adaptive distributed node joining approach for MANET. It uses a cluster based network model. This approach reduces the risk factors at the time of node joining as well as it can maintain the network in a balanced manner. The aim of this work is mainly focused on the problems of the MANET due to the dynamically changing topologies.

  • Study and prioritizing factors of Productivity of the Employees of Steel Manufacturing Industry, Kanjikode by extended ACHIEVE Model   Order a copy of this article
    by Vinu V G., Oliver Bright A. 
    Abstract: Employee productivity is a key factor for the success of manufacturing companies. Employees are an asset that cannot be imitated by other resources, and unfortunately, they are also the hardest to control. Performance improvement initiatives with a wide range of approaches are used in an attempt to improve employee productivity. Incentives or organizational climate improvement are some examples of such programs. However, most of these studies take only one or two factor into consideration, which may not provide a comprehensive solution to the productivity problem they face in many cases. An extended ACHIEVE model by the name MACHIEVE model has been proposed to overcome this, with additional factor M - Material. Analysis of the components of labor productivity based on this new MACHIEVE model has been performed among employees in the Steel manufacturing Industry in Kanjikode. This is a Structural Equation Modelling analysis in which the sample consisting of 420 working personnel in a different workgroup in Steel manufacturing Industry in Kanjikode were selected from 1280 employees through stratified random sampling. The survey tool included labor productivity questionnaire of MACHIEVE model. The data were analyzed by AMOS-23 software and the mean scores for MACHIEVE model variables are calculated.

    by Karthikeyan Sivasamy, Meenakshi Devi P 
    Abstract: The web services are the commonly prevailing service clusters of the service oriented framework (SOA) and service related assessments. The disputes are related to the quality of service (QoS) for choosing web services freely and creating a collection of web services for carrying out trades. The ultimate aim is to choose web services based on the non functional features and quality of service (QoS) ranks. The aim is to consider that these web services holds identical features for every processes along which they hold varying non functional features and quality of service (QoS) metrics. In order to choose a web service for every process a social aspect web (SAW) scheme is employed which does not comprehensively make use of all sorts of web services. It employs the requirements of the user for ranking web service set of the applications and finally provides SAW schemes over a set of web service applicants. The mechanism helps in selecting the web services in terms of quality of services (QoS) scores and user needs. The choice of web services over varied web services based on scheme can be utilized for aggregation and organizing web services resulting in optimized time of reply to the web service actions.

  • Attempting to Design Differed Service Broker Forwarding Strategy for Data Centres in Cloud Environment   Order a copy of this article
    by S. Prabu, S. Karthik 
    Abstract: The cloud computing is based on broadcasted computing resources for controlling diverse services like a server, storage and applications. The applications and models are offered in terms of pay per usage using the data centre to the users. The data centres are positioned globally and moreover, these data centres could be overloaded with the escalated number of client applications that are being serviced at the identical time and position which corrupts the comprehensive quality of service of the relayed services. Diverse user applications might need diverse customization and demands calibrating the performance of the user applications at differed resources are quite intricate. The service supplier is incapable of performing choices for the suitable set of resources. The design of differed service broker forwarding strategies is based on heuristics intended to accomplish minimal reply time based on the transmission medium, bandwidth, latencies and task size. The designed service broker strategy attempts in minimizing the overloads of the data centres by conveying the user demand to the subsequent data centres that acquire improved reply and operational time. The analysis reveals potential outcomes in terms of reply and operational time as estimated to the other exiting broker strategies.
