Workforce scheduling model

Workforce Scheduling Model Student’s Name: Institutional Affiliation: Chapter 4 Case Study and Model Formulation This chapter focuses on a case study of a power plant experiencing workforce problems of operators taking excess overtime hours. The extra hours require the plant to incur extra expenditure and add to overall production costs lowering the profit margin of the plant, aside from generating problems during regular scheduling of shifts. The solution to this problem is to formulate a mathematical model to generate the optimal workforce scheduling plan to reduce the demand for the excess overtime hours. An optimal workforce scheduling plan reduces the pressure on workers and allows the...

DOES NORTHERN IRELAND OFFER A MODEL FOR RESOLVING CONFLICTS IN AFRICA? Student’s Name Name of Course Date Does Northern Ireland Offer a Model for Resolving Conflicts in Africa? Literature Review Numerous discussions among politicians have delineated the role(s) of Northern Ireland in the resolution of conflicts in Africa. As posited by Hain (2007), “The Troubles” conflict took place from 1968 to 1998 in Northern Ireland, and it is responsible for the delineation of the nation as a model for resolving conflicts in Africa (Hain, 2007). The provision(s) of a model for this cause is, in fact, still under debate as some leaders do not necessarily ‘approve’ its existence. Fortunately,...

The people of Kerala and Water Issue

Abstract The people of Kerala are a perfect source of information to facilitate the identification of the water shortage incidence in the area. The people can also provide adequate as well as accurate information related to the incidence of water shortage across the area. In so doing, the people can facilitate the generation of effective research findings, solutions, and recommendations to address the water shortage problem in the area. To complete the data collection process, the people were approached through an NGO active in the efforts to improve water accessibility for the residents of Kerala. Since the NGO has a notable level familiarity with the people and their challenges, it was used to help...

Findings Analysis

FINDINGS AND ANALYSIS Name of Student Name of Course Date Findings and Analysis As per the review of literature and studies, there is a delineation of the importance of understanding the context of power sharing. The concept is a set of principles that is practiced by an institution to allow all groups to participate in decision making of common issues (Akinele, 2000). The incentives used to address those that are vulnerable must be understood to prevent the emergence of conflict renewal. Most of the conflict(s) in Africa emerge from inequality and exclusion where some ethnic groups feel segregated from governance which inevitably leads to underdevelopment (Akinele, 2000). Similarly, the...

Drivers of Sustainable Textile Recycling

Drivers of Sustainable Textile Recycling: Literature Review Institutional Affiliation Drivers of Sustainable Textile Recycling: Literature Review According to Mwanza and Mbohwa (2017), in textile recycling and relative solid waste management frameworks, sustainability prevails as an aspect of development. More so, it alludes to the utilization of resources among future generations making it essential to highlight the primary drivers of sustainable textile recycling. Firstly, the perception of waste as a resource prevails as an economic driver of sustainability. Therefore, it acts as the foundation for introducing and implementing comprehensive recycling programs for sustainable development...

Dissertation topic: Does personality type (extroverted/introverted) affect perceived stress levels in female students

PERSONALITY AND STRESS. Name University Date Personality and Stress. The extrovert female students often are always social and confident, while their introvert colleagues are shy. Introverted and extroverted have different ways of coping, to satisfy their needs (Burger, 2000). This essay is to determine whether personality influences perceived stress levels in female students. Bosworth, Feaganes, Vitaliano, Mark, and Siegler (2001), advocates that extroverts have a negative correlation with passive and avoidance coping strategies. On the other hand, their introvert colleagues have passive coping policies that are not favorable for solving a situation (Baoyong, 2000). Therefore, there exists...

CRISPR CAS 9 use to characterize Kenyan filamentous Fungi

Name of the student Professor’s name Dissertation Abstract April 26th, 2018 CRISPR-Cas9 genomic system in characterizing a wild-type Kenyan filamentous fungus Abstract Studies suggest that there has been a rapid increase in number of fully sequenced fungal genomes. However, most genomic tools that are use to sequence and understand the features of fungal genome are poorly developed. Hence, there is a strong necessity for developing versatile methods for genetic manipulation of non-model filamentous fungi. The CRISPR-Cas9 genomic system has been used to sequence to filamentous fungi. The system is used to administer RNA-directed mutagenesis by transforming a target fungus with the help of a...

Data Collection

Data CollectionStudent Name: Institution Affiliation: Data collection is a critical aspect of any research because it is associated with gathering relevant information regarding the variables of the research which would then be used for measuring and analysis. Data collection is thus an important aspect because the information collected is used to determine and evaluate the outcomes of research, test hypotheses and answer the research questions. It is thus a very common aspect of research in many fields of study. One significant aspect of data collection is precision which can be used to institute the truthfulness of the research (Abowitz, & Toole, 2010). Validity and accuracy are two...
