Development of an Interactive Simulation of Steel Cord Manufacturing for Industrial Engineering Edu.
We developed an interactive simulation program to be used in industrial engineering education, based on an earlier simulation study of a steel cord manufacturing plant. In the class project, the students are asked to design strategies/algorithms for finding the optimal values of operational decision variables by using the program.

The aim of this study is to explore the current use of management accounting practices (MAPs) in the UK food and drinks industry in order to understand the level of MAP sophistication and the factors that affect implementation of MAPs in the industry. Analysis of the accounting practices used suggests that the management accounting systems employed in many food and drinks companies are not particularly sophisticated. Taking the industry as a whole, there is little evidence of management accounting directly connected with ‘value creation’. There are, however, indications that increased use may be expected of techniques relating to cost of quality information, non-financial measures relating to employees, and analysis of competitors’ strengths and weaknesses.

A quality model links together and defines the various software metrics and measurement techniques that an organisation uses which when measured, the approach taken must be sufficiently general for hybrid hardware and software systems. In this work software quality factors that should be taken into account in very large information systems will be considered. Such systems will require a high degree of parallelism and will involve a large number of processing elements. We start by identifying the metrics and measurement approaches that can be used. Many of the quality factors would be applied in similar way for sequential and paralleldistributed architectures, however a number of factors will be investigated which are relevant to the parallel class. In such a system many elements can fail which can have major impact on the system's performance, and therefore it affects the costbenefit factors. Portability and usability are other major problems that need to be taken into account when...

This is a presentation for the 2013 PMI Nashville Symposium. During this presentation Craig will set the stage for the Strategic Project Management track and introduce the audience to the Forgotten Phase of Strategic Project Management. The forgotten phase is before a project begins, where the vision is set and the mission of the project goals are first decided. He will talk about Strategy and his storms of chaos model, Change Management and his butterfly model, his Drivers of Change model, Systems Thinking, and the how the foundational principle of Excellent Management works together to set the stage for project selection.

While defining or measuring the effectiveness of the information systems (IS) function has proven complicated, further effort on refining IS assessment is essential for the effective management and continuous improvement of both the IS function and the organisation. In addition, an effort to investigate the relationships among the established IS assessment tools to better reconcile their existing differences is warranted. This paper aims to clearly differentiate the notions of 'Software' from 'Information Systems'. A new IS assessment model is proposed to provide a more holistic view on how IS quality may be assessed by means of a process capability understanding of evaluating IS effectiveness within the organisational context.
