Correlation of Automobile Bumper Performance with Geometry of the Automobile

Correlation of Automobile Bumper Performance with Geometry of the Automobile

Abstract – This paper presents a correlation of Automobile bumper performance with geometry of the Automobile. The study focuses on finding out if there is any existing relationship between the two variables mentioned and to determine the strength of that relationship if there is any. An approach which allows for this- Pearson’s Correlation process- developed by Karl Pearson is applied. Varying automobile bumpers resulting from different automobile geometry models were simulated using Solid Work Software. The Correlation analysis carried out with the simulation data, produced Correlation coefficients of 0.990534919 & 0.990658205; showing a very strong positive correlation between the variables. Since the Correlation coefficient obtained is greater than the corresponding critical value of Correlation coefficient, 0.917, (under 0.1 tailed test of type1 error) for the correlation degree of freedom of 4, it follows that this research runs only 1% chance of being wrong in the relationship so determined. Hence, it will be useful in automobile design in general.

The Correlation between Lecturer’s Performance and the Motivation of Students in Learning English Subject

The Correlation between Lecturer’s Performance and the Motivation of Students in Learning English Subject

In linguistics study, performance and competence are different, competence is study about language rules in the abstract form or one’s capacity to use a language, while performance is the application of one’s ability in the concrete form, or the actual application of this competence in speaking or listening. Performance is the effect or the application of competence. Further he said that clearly, the actual data of linguistic performance will provide much evidence for determining the correctness of hypotheses about underlining linguistic structure. The term “motivation” was originally derived from the Latin word “movere” , which means “to move”. However, this one word is obviously an inadequate definition for our purpose here. What is needed is a description which sufficiently covers the various aspects inherent in the process by which human behavior is activated. Based on the data indicated that there is a positive correlation between the lecturer’s performance and students’ motivation in learning English subject. This finding revealed an encouragement to the lecturer to increase his or her performance in teaching English as a foreign language in the classroom. On the other words, a lecturer has to a model for the students in the form of performance.

Correlation between roundhouse kick and countermovement jump performance

Correlation between roundhouse kick and countermovement jump performance

Background & Study Aim: Taekwondo (TKD) is a combat sport in which leg techniques are predominant. Roundhouse (bandal chagi) is one of the kicking techniques commonly used in competition. Evaluate and monitoring the power and accu- racy of each blow is crucial for training process. Sports scientists and coaches have used the countermovement jump to evaluate the strength and power of lower limbs muscles. However, it is not a specific taekwondo test. Therefore, it was interesting to compare kick and jump performance in order to show the importance of mon- itoring training by specifics tests. The purpose of this study was to correlate the countermovement jump per- formance with the roundhouse kick performance in TKD athletes. It was hypothesized that there will not be an elevated correlation between them.

Impact of antenna correlation on the performance of partial relay selection

Impact of antenna correlation on the performance of partial relay selection

Figure 1 shows the outage probability variation with the average SNR of the first hop. Curves are plotted for differ- ent antenna configurations and correlation parameters. It is observed from the figure that the increase of the num- ber of antennas, improves the outage probability. High SNR curves are also plotted where we can clearly see how diversity gain is varying. One can notice that the left three curves have a diversity gain of four and the two right most curves have a diversity gain of two. It is noticed that the increase of correlation decreases the performance. The outage probability variation for fixed gain relay is depicted in Figure 2. Here we see an improvement in the per- formance when the number of antennas and number of relays increase. However, as in the csi-assisted case we can observe that this improvement depends on the diversity gain. It is further observed that the increase of correla- tion decreases the performance. Moreover, one can notice that the csi-assisted relay outperforms the fixed gain one by approximately 3 dB. Moreover Monte Carlo simulation results exactly match with the analytical ones.

A New Approach to Measuring the Correlation of Organizational Alignment and Performance

A New Approach to Measuring the Correlation of Organizational Alignment and Performance

Abstract: Research Questions: This paper focuses on measuring the alignment of organizational elements. Motivation: Although several authors have analyzed this topic, there are few papers in which a concept for measuring the alignment of key elements of the organization is proposed (Simons, 2005; Sadeghi, 2011; Trevor & Varcoe, 2017). In previous research, the concept of alignment is usually defined through categorical variables and different organizational configurations are suggested (Mintzberg, 1980). Thus, this paper aims to propose a new approach to measuring organizational elements and their alignment. Idea: Based on the literature review we determined the organizational model for conducting the research in companies listed on the top 300 companies in Serbia. Data: On the sample of 57 respondents the results confirmed the defined hypothesis by which the alignment of the organizational elements has a positive correlation with the organizational performance. Tools: In order to measure the organizational elements we defined the 7-level scale which enables measuring the alignment of organizational elements. Findings: The research results confirm that it is necessary to look at the solutions based on some organizational elements simultaneously. However, in order to confirm the validity and reliability of the results, it is necessary to conduct a research on a larger sampling frame, since the sample from this research is relatively small in comparison to the total population. Contribution: The defined scale can be used as a control tool for checking the proposed organizational design solutions in practice. Also, the rules of alignment of organizational elements can be applied at different hierarchical levels in the organization, which will be the subject of future research of the authors.

Determinants of Employee Engagement in the Banking Industry in Kenya; Case of Cooperative Bank

Determinants of Employee Engagement in the Banking Industry in Kenya; Case of Cooperative Bank

Employee engagement is considered one of the most powerful measures of a company’s vigor towards competitive advantage and high performance. Employee engagement involves creating prospects for employees to attach with their managers, colleagues and organizations. The study sought to assess the determinants of employee engagement in the banking industry in Kenya. The determinants covered were performance management system, personal development and growth opportunities, and workplace recreation and remuneration. The study adopted a descripto-explanatory research design, covering a sample of 214 respondents drawn from a target population of 496 employees of Cooperative Bank of Kenya. The data collected through a self-administered questionnaire was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study achieved a response rate of 50%. Correlation tests revealed a strong positive correlation between organizational performance management, personal development and growth opportunities, workplace recreation, and remuneration package and employee engagement with coefficients of 0.733, 0.596, 0.720 and 0.780 respectively at a 0.01 significance level. Regression analysis revealed that an increase in workplace recreation, personal development and growth, performance management, and remuneration package by one unit would increase employee engagement by 0.090, 219, 0.386 and 0.389 units respectively. All the variables covered had positive influence on employee engagement. However, remuneration was the highest contributor of employee engagement with workplace recreation having the least influence. The study recommends that bank managers should give special attention to programmes and activities that promote employee engagement which has a positive linkage to performance. Such programmes should include two-way communication system, ensure that employees have necessary resources they need to do their jobs, give employees appropriate training to increase their knowledge and skills, establish reward systems in which oustanding job performance is rewarded through various financial and non- financial incentives, build a distinctive corporate culture that encourages hard work and keeps success stories alive, develop a strong performance management system which holds managers and employees accountable, place attention on top-performing employees to reduce their turnover.

Sievenpiper HIS and its influence on antenna correlation

Sievenpiper HIS and its influence on antenna correlation

The intention of applying Diversity with multiple receive and/or transmit antennas in wireless communication systems is to overcome the drawbacks like fading and depolarisation comprising the signal transmitted over the wireless channel (see Jakes, 1974). Therefore different Diversity techniques like spatial-, pattern- or polarization-Diversity can be imple- mented in a transceiver to reduce these signal impairments with the benefit of either increasing the transmission link re- liability or the effective data rate both by increasing the avail- able SNR at the receiver. An important characteristic influ- encing the Diversity performance is the complex correlation coefficient of incoming signals resulting from signal correla- tion within the channel and the antenna correlation between each element of a MEA system. The correlation influences the achievable Diversity gain, which is a measure for the re- duction of the channel imposed data link impairments. The complex correlation coefficient between antenna element i and j of a receiver is given in Eq. (2). Here R and σ represent the covariance term and the standard deviation, respectively. ρ i,j =

Genetic relationship between purebred and crossbred sow longevity

Genetic relationship between purebred and crossbred sow longevity

Improving crossbred performance is the goal for most swine breeders. However, most swine genetic companies make selection decisions based on purebred performance records though genetic correlations between purebred and crossbred performance traits are not 1, indicating that the relationship is not perfect [14–16]. While the magni- tude of the genetic correlation estimates between the cu- mulative and lifetime born alive traits in this study were similar to correlations estimates between purebred and crossbred traits previously reported, the genetic correla- tions between longevity traits in the current study were lower in magnitude compared to other studies [14–16]. The population structure in the current analysis could have prevented the detection of a genetic correlation. A structure where sires were used in both the purebred and crossbred herds would be more ideal to estimate genetic correlations; however, ideal data structures are not always available when analyzing field data. Additionally, the methods utilized in the study may not be sufficient in de- tecting a genetic association between the binary traits due to the dataset’s population structure.

Knowledge management as a performance enhancing tool in construction project management in South Africa

Knowledge management as a performance enhancing tool in construction project management in South Africa

enhancing tool in construction project management in SA business benefits of knowledge management among management- level personnel; 3) recognition of business benefits of knowledge management use among project-level staff, and 4) perceived level of correlation between knowledge management and enhanced performance in construction project management. (It is noted that such responses would be somewhat subjective). A 4-point scale and associated coding (High = 3, Medium = 2, Low = 1, Nil = 0) was used to assess the relative awareness levels, as suggested by Goddard & Melville (2005). The results revealed that 60% of the survey respondents indicated awareness level indices ranging from ‘medium to high’. This leads one to conclude that the respondent project management personnel in South Africa are likely to make use of knowledge management tools, provided they are appropriately resourced with such tools (see Tables 1 and 2).

Employee performance in the knowledge economy: Capturing the keys to success

Employee performance in the knowledge economy: Capturing the keys to success

Bivariate correlations between the eight performance-related behaviors and global performance were all statistically signifi - cant and positive in direction, although some were rather small; notably, the statistics for commitment and interpersonal skills were less than r = 0.30. The remaining correlation coeffi cients ranged from r = 0.32 for adaptability to r = 0.59 for dependabil- ity. The full bivariate correlation table is presented in Table 3. Moving on to the multiple regression results where were able to examine the unique links between each of the eight indi- cators and global performance controlling for some potentially confounding variables, we found two statistically signifi cant associations (see Model 1, Table 4). Namely, sharing ideas and information and dependability were both positively asso- ciated with employees’ global performance net of the other performance indicators and employees’ background and job characteristics. The coeffi cient for reporter type was not signifi - cant suggesting that global performance was rated similarly by employees and their managers. Workers in customer services departments exhibited higher levels of global performance than their peers in other departments. This model accounted for about half of the variance in global performance.

The Effect of Job Satisfaction, Organizational Commitment to Turnover Intention and Employee Performance

The Effect of Job Satisfaction, Organizational Commitment to Turnover Intention and Employee Performance

Convergent validity can be seen from the correlation among other indicators with the value of variables. Indicator with loading factor value is said to be valid / reliable when it has a correlation value above 0.7, however for the initial stage of development of measurement scale the loading value of 0.5 to 0.6 is considered sufficient (Chin, 1998 in Ghozali, 2014) . However, if the resulting value is not> 0.5 then the indicator is declared invalid and the indicator must be removed from the model so that it must be done data processing (running data) again.

Employee satisfaction and citizenship performance among generation X and Y

Employee satisfaction and citizenship performance among generation X and Y

The variance on job satisfactions and its relationship towards Citizenship Performance have been confirmed by the factor of generation. As defined by various researchers, generation are groups of people that are categorized according to their range of ages, location they lived, and significant life events they experienced at critical developmental stages. Employees that are grouped together according to their year of birth or ages have expected to have a similar life events and living experiences that further influenced their work values, attitudes, and even behaviours. These variances will thus eventually results in different combination of preferred working environment and expectation from contributions.
