Abstract

Management styles affect quality cost in the construction industry. Despite this, little has been done to counter the negative effects. This study investigated the relationship between management styles and the cost of quality in the construction industry using self-administered questionnaires distributed among employees of two different construction firms in Libya, Tripoli state. Moreover, literature review was carried out from different books, journals and articles to arrive at the intention. The findings of the questionnaire reveal that indeed management styles have an impact on the cost of quality. Thus, there a need for construction firms to adopt cost of quality, but most importantly have an effective leadership that will support them to take up cost quality and implement it to achieve company objectives and those of their clients.

Abstract

Waiting inside the airport for the next flight (i.e., transfer) might be very lengthy and boring. Thus, many passengers have opted to get out of the airport to participate in transit tours, which are mini all-inclusive packages of the necessary tour components. However, due to the novelty of the operation, the existing literature has not covered this issue yet. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to develop a theoretical framework to explain the transit tour concept. From there, the four cases of Seoul Incheon Airport, Singapore Changi Airport, Tokyo Narita Airport and Beijing Capital Airport were investigated to understand participants' perceptions of the transit tours. Outcomes of the analysis of reviews posted on tripadvisor.com suggested that the tours were perceived differently among airports. Based on these findings, practical implications for tour providers, airports and tourism administration organizations were discussed.

Abstract

This study aims to examine the relationship between variables in the model that explains the intention to use an application based android. This study confirms several variables which in previous studies are still a debate, namely the influence of knowledge on the intention to use. This study also uses attitudes to mediate the influence of website quality and electronic Word of Mouth (e-WOM), with the consideration that the discussion of the direct influence on adoption behavior will ignore the cognitive aspects of consumers in making purchasing decisions. This research is a survey research with a questionnaire. The populations in this study are all online shopping consumers who have adopted an application based android in the Special Region of Yogyakarta. The number of respondents in this study was 206 consumers. Data analysis in this study used structural equation modeling (SEM). The results showed that knowledge has a positive effect on perceived relative advantage. Web quality and e-WOM affect attitudes, and relative advantages and attitudes influence the intention to use. The results of the study show that the intention to use model is acceptable. All proposed hypotheses are also supported. Knowledge has a positive effect on relative advantages. Website quality, e-WOM and relative advantages have an influence on attitudes, and attitudes influence the intention to use the android application.

Keywords: Knowledge, Relative advantage, Web quality, e-WOM, intention to use

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of emotional intelligence on job performance among Mauritian employees in the private sector. Furthermore, the study examined whether job satisfaction is a significant mediator of the relationship between emotional intelligence and job performance. This study was based on primary data survey through online questionnaires sent via Google Forms in Mauritius nation-wide. 75 responses were collected and analyzed using factor analysis and partial least squares - structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) techniques. The findings indicated that emotional intelligence did not have a direct, positive and significant effect on job performance. However, emotional intelligence had a positive and significant effect on job satisfaction. This study also established that job satisfaction is a mediator between emotional intelligence and job performance. The findings of this study will be useful for the Human resources department of private companies as well as the Human Resource Developmental Council of Mauritius for the design and implementation of training programs.

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to empirically investigate the relationship between service quality (SQ) and organizational performance (OP) within the Egyptian mobile telecommunications setting. A valid research instrument was utilized to conduct a survey of 384 top- middle- and supervisory level managers from 3 Egyptian mobile telecommunications companies. The results indicate that SQ has a significant positive impact on OP. the results also show that Egyptian mobile telecommunications companies have mostly emphasized the responsiveness, reliability and convenience of their services to boost their OP. The findings reveal that SQ is a true driver of OP in an intensive knowledge-based industry as telecommunication. This is one of few researches to study the relationship of SQ and OP and the first to investigate this relationship in Egypt within the mobile telecommunications setting. This is an empirical research applied in the Egyptian telecommunications setting. Its relationships need further investigation in other settings and countries. Also, traditional limitations of a cross-sectional study apply with respect to the attribution of causality and the time lag effects.

Abstract

This research is intended to descriptively analyze person-organization fit, job satisfaction, and employee turnover intention. Besides, this research aims to analyze the influence of person-organization fit and job satisfaction on employee turnover intention, both simultaneously and partially. The type of this research is descriptive and verification research. The population in this research consists of employees from Bank SyariahBukopin, Bank BNI Syariah, and Bank JabarBantenSyariah. Sampling technique used in this research is non-probability sampling using a saturated sample technique. This research uses multiple regression employing more than one independent variable, namely person-organization fit (X1) and job satisfaction (X2). While the dependent variable is the turnover intention (Y). The results of this research show that turnover intention is significantly and simultaneously influenced by person-organization fit and job satisfaction variables of 37.50%. While the rest 62.50% is influenced by other variables outside this research. They are possibly organizational commitment, employee engagement, social support, change management, leadership, organizational behavior, and others. It is thus implied that there are many other potential variables which may affect employee turnover intention. Partially, the results of this research show that the person-organization fit does not affect turnover intention. However, job satisfaction affects turnover intention quite significantly. Thus, the better the job satisfaction is, the higher the turnover intention becomes.

Abstract

This paper illustrates the deployment of the background subtraction (BGS) approach in detecting and tracking the targeted moving objects (MOs). Through the BGS method, there is a potential of cost-saving because the process of storing data occurs once the motion is detected. The aim was to detect the MOs effectively. The applied technique is applicable at all scenarios and places that need the real-time video surveillance systems (VSS), including airports, forest, frequent entrances for criminals, traffic monitoring, country borders, cash machines, schools, banks, among other challenging outdoor and indoor areas. The concept of installing VSS is substantially much needed. The BGS method was employed with fewer complications so that the approach can be utilised in a pragmatic manner (conditions) where the VSS is highly needed. The VSS must be more convenient, effective and efficient to enhance advanced security systems.

Abstract

At one of the famous Tanzanian ferries - Kigamboni ferry terminal, it is common to find a long queue of people at the ticketing window and the entrance waiting for tickets to get into a lounge, respectively. At the tickets' window,one of the main identified problems is difficultness in picking tickets and time wasted during the printing process. Similarly, at the entrance, it takes an average of 12 seconds to scan a ticket due to systems' insensitivity. This study thus introduces a new system that would probably drastically reduce the time spent on two occasions. The system employs laser technology and non-paper-based tickets to save time by simplifying to processtickets, which will also increase the sensitivity of the system for saving time. The impacts of the proposed system will be realisedforthe entire communities by saving their time, government for effective revenue collection as well as a clean and safe environment by getting rid of paper-based tickets.

NOVEL SOLUTION TO REYNOLDS EQUATION FOR EXTERNALLY PRESSURISED GAS BEARINGS AS A COMBINATION OF THE SOLUTIONS OF TWO INITIAL VALUE PROBLEMS

NOVEL SOLUTION TO REYNOLDS EQUATION FOR EXTERNALLY PRESSURISED GAS BEARINGS AS A COMBINATION OF THE SOLUTIONS OF TWO INITIAL VALUE PROBLEMS

Abstract

This paper presents a novel method which generates the solution of Reynolds boundary value differential equation as a combination of the solutions of two initial value problems (IVP). By using the linearized PH theory, the results for the concentric Externally Pressurized Gas Bearing (EPB) were used to solve the case of a steady state eccentric EPB. The method was also used to investigate the influence of the feeding recess volume on the cylindrical whirl threshold ratio and bearing coefficients as well as for the calculation of the transition point between unchoked to choked flow. The results have engineering significance as the EPB coefficients are shown to vary considerably due to the interaction between the recces volumes and the journal vibration. Also, the transition from chocked to unchoked flow changes the gas bearing dimensionless flow and, as a result, the inlet pressure values.The Mathematica program used to implement the method has the advantage that it does not require grid spacing, or an estimated number of intermediate points. It employs standard Mathematica build-in functions, therefore easier to design and use for engineering applications. The calculated results and graphs are in fair agreement with available foundational experimental and theoretical published work.

Keywords: Externally pressurized gas journal bearing, Recess volume, Bearing coefficients, Whirl ratio, Boundary differential equation, Initial value problem
