Practicability and Affection of Enterprise Manpower Inventory

Hsu, Yu-Fang 23 December 2010 (has links)
In a competitive environment, how enterprises keep their advantages is becoming more and more significant. From many theoretical and practical researches, employees seem to be the key resource in a working place, which means to have a proper worker in a right position. However, some enterprises do not have a great understanding of making a good use of human resource to make things go smoothly and effectively. Thus this essay emphasizes on the issue of Manpower Inventory by interviewing eight enterprises. I analyzed the results from these eight enterprises to obtain the similarities and dissimilarities of using Manpower Inventory, like background, purpose, and goal. I hope this research will be a useful reference for all the enterprises. I highlighted the major points below: 1. These eight enterprises have different backgrounds and purses but all are willing to have a change to make a good use of human resource by using Manpower Inventory. 2. Manpower Inventory can be distinguished into regularity and particularity. The former one means to put manpower inventory in routine, in other words, to have manpower inventory regularly. The later, particular inventory will be brought up when the organization probably needs it. 3. Quantity inventory depending on the qualities of employees has different inventory means. Generally speaking, however, multi-index is the better method. Skill inventory is supposed to have some related aids to promote workers¡¦ special skills. 4. Manpower Inventory is connected with working achievement, resigning improper employees and promoting proper employees, to make the company stay strong and effective. Adjusting by the entire environment is the key to gain effects. 5. Manpower policy depends on the predictable produce. When the shortage of employees happens in a short term, asking for more hours working, taking shift turns or having helpers from outsider, can solve the problem. On the other hand, when a company has a quilter business, some workers might be asked to have days off without getting paid or even be let go. 6. Human resource department is supposed to follow the future development and find the solutions for the predictable problems. However, planning cannot always follow the changes. Being flexible and having well communication, therefore, will be the best way to untangle unexpected problems and achieve manpower inventory plan.

A Probabilistic Inventory Analysis of Biomass for the State of Texas for Cellulosic Ethanol

Gleinser, Matthew A. 16 January 2010 (has links)
Agricultural and forestry wastes for the use of creating cellulosic ethanol were inventoried for each county in Texas. A simple forecast was created for each of the agricultural wastes and then a multivariate empirical distribution was used to simulate the range of biomass available by county and district. The probability that a district could support a 25, 50, 75, or 100 million gallon cellulosic ethanol plant is estimated from the Monte Carlo simulation results. Biomass in Texas is concentrated in the Northern and Eastern areas of the state. The areas of South and West Texas have little to no biomass available to use for cellulosic ethanol. The North East, South East, and Upper Coast districts include forestry waste that increase the amount of available biomass. With 100 percent certainty the North East and South East districts can support four 100 million gallon cellulosic ethanol plants each. The research found that there is more than enough biomass to support numerous cellulosic ethanol plants in Texas, and decision makers can use the results of this study to identify regions of low and high risk for available biomass from agricultural and forestry waste.

Inventory valuation : Difficulties in manufacturing companies; what & why?

Friberg, Lina, Nilsson, Sofia, Wärnbring, Sofia January 2006 (has links)
<p>Master Thesis, School of Management and Economics, Växjö University, Advanced Concepts in Logistics Management, FED370, Spring 2006</p><p>Authors: Lina Friberg, Sofia Nilsson and Sofia Wärnbring</p><p>Tutor: Petra Andersson</p><p>Examiner: Lars-Olof Rask</p><p>Title: Inventory Valuation - difficulties; what & why?</p><p>Background: It is important to value inventories accurately in order to meet shareholder needs and demands for financial information. For manufacturing companies, inventories usually represent approximately 20 to 60 percent of their assets; hence it affects companies’ profits. It is essential in which way assets are valued, however, it will be a waste of time if the record accuracy level is poor.</p><p>Research Questions: Why do companies experience problems when valuing inventories? In order to answer this research question, the following question also has to be answered: What problems can be identified?</p><p>Purpose: The purpose of this master thesis is to describe and explain difficulties when valuing inventories.</p><p>Limitations: We are not considering work-in-process and finished goods inventories, only raw material inventory. Neither are we looking at the companies’ internal calculation system, as we believe this will not be relevant for raw material.</p><p>Method: We chose a positivistic view since we were studying our problem from a process perspective. A case study approach was suitable for us as our thesis was written in the form of a project, and we combined our empirical and theoretical data through the deductive approach.</p><p>Conclusions: The problem of inventory valuation does not exist in the pricing aspect. Most problems are connected to quantity. Especially the daily routines were found to be insufficient, thus creating inaccuracies between the physical quantity in inventory and the quantity displayed in the system. Company B, the larger company, was found not to have as many problems as the smaller Company A has.</p><p>Continued research: We believe an overall picture regarding valuation is needed, including the work-in-process and the finished goods inventories. Moreover, deficiencies are often not just found in the processes, but also the humans involved, and how they are motivated to secure accuracy. In addition, an implementation of cycle counting could be interesting to investigate.</p>

An examination of shortcomings in inventory management and control in selected Saldanha Bay firms

Diergaardt, Johannes Godfree January 2007 (has links)
Thesis (MTech (Business Administration))--Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2007 / The dissertation focuses on sharing experiences related to the shortcomings in the discipline of inventory management and control. The research was limited to inventory management and control practices in select manufacturing and production sites in Saldanha Bay on the Cape west coast. The shortcomings identified may be seen as holistic in inventory management and control and are thus not restricted to the Saldanha Bay area only. The results of the research provide comprehensive insight into the elementary aspects of managing inventories in fast- paced, industrial manufacturing environment. The dissertation touches on the problems that arise when inventory managers do not understand the concept of inventory management. The researcher witnessed the shortage of schooled and skilled inventory managers in both the public and privates sectors in South Africa. It is hoped that after reading the content of this research, the reader concerned with inventory management and control will be better equipped to address these issues.

Frequent Inventory of Network Devices for Incident Response: A Data-driven Approach to Cybersecurity and Network Operations

Kobezak, Philip D. 22 May 2018 (has links)
Challenges exist in higher education networks with host inventory and identification. Any student, staff, faculty, or dedicated IT administrator can be the primary responsible personnel for devices on the network. Confounding the problem is that there is also a large mix of personally-owned devices. These network environments are a hybrid of corporate enterprise, federated network, and Internet service provider. This management model has survived for decades based on the ability to identify responsible personnel when a host, system, or user account is suspected to have been compromised or is disrupting network availability for others. Mobile devices, roaming wireless access, and users accessing services from multiple devices has made the task of identification onerous. With increasing numbers of hosts on networks of higher education institutions, strategies such as dynamic addressing and address translation become necessary. The proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) makes this identification task even more difficult. Loss of intellectual property, extortion, theft, and reputational damage are all significant risks to research institution networks. Quickly responding to and remediating incidents reduces exposure and risk. This research evaluates what universities are doing for host inventory and creates a working prototype of a system for associating relevant log events to one or more responsible people. The prototype reduces the need for human-driven updates while enriching the dynamic host inventory with additional information. It also shows the value of associating application and service authentications to hosts. The prototype uses live network data which is de-identified to protect privacy. / Master of Science
