This paper tries to assess employees’ attitude towards quality of work life in an electronicscompany in Solan city of Himachal Pradesh. Four variables of Quality of work life i.e. job profile, personal growth, work culture and organizational commitment were used to assess employee’s attitude towards Quality of work life. The data was collected from a sample of 50 respondents, comprising of 7managers, 13 supervisors and 30 workers from two branches of the organization in the city. Questionnaires in Hindi and English were used to collect the primary data. Statistical analysis of the data revealed that all the three categories of employees were high in organizational commitment whereas supervisors and workers still had few complaints regarding job profile, personal growth and work culture. Some suggestions were put forward to improve the overall Quality of work life of the organization.
fresh air and no exhaust of stale air. By estimation, it was also noted that the height of the ceiling is lower than the usual ceiling elevation. The feedback from the initial observations became a lead to study company’s Indoor Air Quality. To broaden the investigation, this study seeks to answer the following objectives such as to: (1) assess the indoor air quality in an electronicscompany through observation and field measurements of parameters such as temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide concentration and air velocity; (2) analyze the results of the assessment through the application of acceptable Indoor Air Quality and Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy under the ASHRAE
Visual appearance has been found to have a major effect on how users appreciate websites (Van der Geest & Loorbach, 2005). Surprisingly, results of the experiment in study 2 indicate no significant effect of consistent CVI on the general judgment of the CVI on social media, and are therefore not in line with (Van der Geest & Loorbach, 2005). A possible explanation for this might be that appreciation of a whole website or only the CVI on social media platforms is a huge difference. Further looking into the appreciation of the CVI, main effects were found of the Organization type on the innovativeness, distinctiveness and credibility of the CVI and an interaction effect on credibility was found. These results show that the Electronicscompany scored significantly higher than the Bank on all these sub constructs except for credibility. In addition, results indicate that there is more influence of the Organization than of the CVI alone, which is in line with Downling’s (1994) suggestion that visual identity is important, although “it is not nearly as important as what your organization does, the products and services it offers, or what and how it communicates with stakeholders”.
The Multiples approach is a relatively simpler way to value companies by valuing companies in relation to the value of similar companies in a similar industry. Care must be taken though in insuring that comparable companies have similar performance as measure by ROIC and growth, no small task when accessing the relative valuation of Sweeney, a small privately held electronicscompany. Koller articulates that “selecting the right peer group is critical to coming up with a reasonable valuation using multiples. Common practice is to select a group of 8 to 15 peer organizations and take the average of the multiples of the peer group. Getting a reasonable valuation, though, requires judgement about which companies and their multiples are truly relevant for the valuation” If valid, comparable companies can be found, earnings or cash flow multiples (a common cash flow multiple would be enterprise value divided by earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), can provide critical insights and secondary support for testing and summarizing a valuation analysis and determining what drives value in a given industry but should not be used as a shortcut to one’s valuation analysis (Koller, 2015).
models and solution methods to determine the final pur- chase quantity necessary to support service parts for S Electronics, one of the largest electronicscompany in the world. Our experimental results with the 16 company data sets show that the proposed methods save the cost over the company practice by average 0.57% and 3.58% (max 2.55% and 9.54%) for the simple and re-order models, respectively. This translates into annual cost saving of about $0.6 million dollars even in Korea alone. Considering S Electronics’ world wide business scope and over 20,000 different parts types per year, the value of the proposed methods could lead to substantial saving. The sensitivity study also shows that the saving will in- crease furthermore as the demand uncertainty and cus- tomer expectation toward products increase. With these findings, the company recently adopted the proposed methods for real usage in its operation.
Before the 1960s, semiconductor engineering was regarded as part of low-current and low-voltage electronic engineering. The currents used in solid-state devices were below one ampere and voltages only a few tens of volts. The year 1970 began one of the most exciting decades in the history of low-current electronics. A number of companies entered the field, including Analog Devices, Computer Labs, and National Semiconductor. The 1980s represented high growth years for integrated circuits, hybrid, and modular data converters. The 1990s major applications were industrial process control, measurement, instrumentation, medicine, audio, video, and computers. In addition, communications became an even bigger driving force for low-cost, low-power, high-performance converters in modems, cell-phone handsets, wireless infrastructure, and other portable applications. The trends of more highly integrated functions and power dissipation drop have continued into the 2000s.
Anant Agarwal is Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He joined the faculty in 1988, teaching courses in circuits and electronics, VLSI, digital logic and computer architecture. Between 1999 and 2003, he served as an associate director of the Laboratory for Computer Science. He holds a Ph.D. and an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, and a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Madras. Agarwal led a group that developed Sparcle (1992), a multithreaded microprocessor, and the MIT Alewife (1994), a scalable shared-memory multiprocessor. He also led the VirtualWires project at MIT and was a founder of Virtual Machine Works, Inc., which took the VirtualWires logic emulation technology to market in 1993. Currently Agarwal leads the Raw project at MIT, which developed a new kind of reconfigurable computing chip. He and his team were awarded a Guinness world record in 2004 for LOUD, the largest microphone array in the world, which can pinpoint, track and amplify individual voices in a crowd. Co-founder of Engim, Inc., which develops multi-channel wireless mixed-signal chipsets, Agarwal also won the Maurice Wilkes prize for computer architecture in 2001, and the Presidential Young Investigator award in 1991.
