FACTUAL APPROACH IN DECISION MAKING – THE PREREQUISITE OF SUCCESS IN QUALITY MANAGEMENT

Online veröffentlicht: 25 Jan 2014
Seitenbereich: 1 - 7

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

In quality management system as well as in other managerial systems, effective decisions must be always based on the data and information analysis, i.e. based on facts, in accordance with the factual approach principle in quality management. It is therefore necessary to measure and collect the data and information about processes. The article presents the results of a conducted survey, which was focused on application of factual approach in decision making. It also offers suggestions for improvements of application of the principle in business practice. This article was prepared using the research results of VEGA project No. 1/0229/08 “Perspectives of the quality management development in relation to the requirements of market in the Slovak Republic”.

INNOVATIVE APPROACHES TO TEACHING PACKAGING DESIGN USING THE EXAMPLE OF MINERAL WATER SUPPLY CHAINS

Online veröffentlicht: 25 Jan 2014
Seitenbereich: 8 - 13

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

Designing the packaging of a product has many critical factors. In our paper, we present some of them on the example of a simple product: mineral water. In spite of the fact that today not only products, but also supply chains are competing with each other, designers sometimes pay little attention to considering the packaging system not only from the customer and the producer side, but for warehousing and transportation as well. We cover a lot of “what can go wrong” scenarios on the example of mineral water packaging for the purpose of defining the critical points in the supply chain.

BEGA – ANDROID-BASED BEERGAME SIMULATION SOFTWARE FOR INTERACTIVE TRAINING AND INNOVATION

Online veröffentlicht: 25 Jan 2014
Seitenbereich: 14 - 20

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The supply chain management challenges and inventory holding problems can easily be demonstrated by the widely known BeerGame simulation. In the Szabó-Szoba R&D Laboratory, we developed an android-based software application for tablets and smart phones for the purpose of having an adaptable, entertaining and effective program which can provide a real life experience to the participants about the nature of the bullwhip effect. Having an appropriate and comprehensive performance measurement system with the critical parameters and KPIs is inevitable for finding the right solutions - We used four perspectives of the Balanced Scorecard method. The innovative force of our research is based on the trainings: the discussion on outcomes and the team learning. The purpose of the current development is to build a new feature in the software: an artificial client can substitute one or more players in the supply chain, which makes decisions by using genetic algorithms.

REVIEW OF SPECIAL STANDARDS IN QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AUDITS IN AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCTION

Online veröffentlicht: 25 Jan 2014
Seitenbereich: 21 - 30

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

Quality management systems (QMS) in automotive industry generally have several differences in comparison with other industrial branches. Different customers have their own specific requirements, including requirements for quality audits. Audits are one of the coretools of quality management to make the PDCA (Plan - Do - Check - Act) cycle work. As a matter of fact, compliance with ISO/TS 16949:2009 requirements is a condition for supplying the automotive industry. However, there are some standards which co-exist together with the ISO 9001 based management systems and technical specification for QMS in automotive ISO/TS16949. Which are those specific standards in automotive industry and what standard to use and why - those are the questions to be answered in this paper. The aim of the paper is to review what standards are used for audits implementation in automotive industry in the Slovak Republic, and why the organizations keep following those “extra” standards even if certification for ISO/TS 16949 is required by all the car makers. The paper is structured as follows: after short introduction to the topic and related terms, presented is our methodology. . In the third section, the achieved results are discussed. And finally, the principal findings of the paper, limitations and conclusions are presented.

EXTRACTING PROCESS AND MAPPING MANAGEMENT FOR HETEROGENNOUS SYSTEMS

Online veröffentlicht: 25 Jan 2014
Seitenbereich: 31 - 37

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

A lot of papers describe three common methods of data selection from primary systems. This paper defines how to select the correct method or combinations of methods for minimizing the impact of production system and common operation. Before using any method, it is necessary to know the primary system and its databases structures for the optimal use of the actual data structure setup and the best design for ETL process. Databases structures are usually categorized into groups, which characterize their quality. The classification helps to find the ideal method for each group and thus design a solution of ETL process with the minimal impact on the data warehouse and production system.

APPLYING DATA MINING METHODS IN ANALYSIS OF STRUCTURAL RELATIONSHIPS IN THE SYSTEM OF RANDOM PROCESSES

Online veröffentlicht: 25 Jan 2014
Seitenbereich: 38 - 42

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present the possibilities of applying data mining techniques to the problem of the structural relationships analysis in the system of stationary random processes. In this paper, we will define the basic problem areas of analysis of structural relationships and we will show how to solve these problems by the methods of data mining. Individual solutions to selected problem areas will be demonstrated on a model which was designed in MATLAB. In the experiment, we will identify the existence and the nature of the process relationships in the system of stationary random processes based on the results of analyses.

BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE IN PROCESS CONTROL

Online veröffentlicht: 25 Jan 2014
Seitenbereich: 43 - 53

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The Business Intelligence technology, which represents a strong tool not only for decision making support, but also has a big potential in other fields of application, is discussed in this paper. Necessary fundamental definitions are offered and explained to better understand the basic principles and the role of this technology for company management. Article is logically divided into five main parts. In the first part, there is the definition of the technology and the list of main advantages. In the second part, an overview of the system architecture with the brief description of separate building blocks is presented. Also, the hierarchical nature of the system architecture is shown. The technology life cycle consisting of four steps, which are mutually interconnected into a ring, is described in the third part. In the fourth part, analytical methods incorporated in the online analytical processing and data mining used within the business intelligence as well as the related data mining methodologies are summarised. Also, some typical applications of the above-mentioned particular methods are introduced. In the final part, a proposal of the knowledge discovery system for hierarchical process control is outlined. The focus of this paper is to provide a comprehensive view and to familiarize the reader with the Business Intelligence technology and its utilisation.
