APPLYING TOPSIS AND QSPM METHODS IN FRAMEWORK SWOT MODEL: CASE STUDY OF THE IRAN’S STOCK MARKET►Mahsa Beidokhty nejad,

The object of this research is to review and evaluate the stock exchange situation and to prepare strategy for this organization. For this purpose, with the usage of Delphi method and interviews with some stock experts and managers of investment institutions we were able to identify and evaluate strengths and weaknesses and opportunities and threats that this organization is faced them. Also, in order to obtain information about conditions and characteristics of the competitors, News, documents and their monthly and annual reports were studied. In this study for calculating the internal factor evaluation and external factor evaluation, we do as below, after identifying the internal and external environmental factors and providing a list of these factors support the views of experts, key factors were determined. Then for each factor a weight factor between zero (unimportant) to one (very important) was allocated, In the next step for each factor Points were given between 1 to 4 depending on the amount of compliance between Iran's stock market with the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Then weighted score are calculated by multiplying Importance of each factor to weight and the total score obtained. As a result of these two tables, the encounter point in SWOT matrix is obtained that Indicates where the organization located in any matrix house and what kind of strategies is appropriate for it. According to these for Iran Stock Exchange appropriate strategies prepared and finally, to determine the best strategy and prioritize them, QSPM techniques were used.

maximum amount, 4. Now, if this number is above 2.5, from the perspective of internal factors it means that visual pollution is in a desirable condition. According to the table, the sum of these scores is 2.459. QSPM uses the weights, attributed to these factors. Then using external factor evaluation in matrices 2 and 4, the most important opportunities and threats, related to Vanak and Enghelab Squares from the perspective of visual pollution have been presented. The opportunities and threats are graded as follows: great opportunity is equal to 1 and 2, while weak opportunity is 3. Also, severe threat is 1 and weak threat, 4. These factors have been presented quantitatively to avoid any misunderstanding and perceived judgments. Finally, the related total weight is obtained. If it is above 2.5, it means the organization has used the external opportunities properly and has avoided the potential threats. The highest weight which may be attributed to the overall set of factors is 4. As it can be seen, the highest opportunities and threats are 0.248 and the lowest ones, 0.017. The sum of this amount is 3.402. Afterwards, QSPM uses the matrix of internal and external factors evaluation, and, based on their importance in improving organization success, a weight is assigned to each factor. The same process has been performed for Enghelab Square.

IFE and EFE Matrix in the Model Space Matrix on Resto AW at JAKARTA

IFE and EFE Matrix in the Model Space Matrix on Resto AW at JAKARTA

Evaluation in the matrix IFE provides some elements which could be used to identify and evaluate the relationships between one component with the other components. The internal Factor Evaluation matrix or short IFE matrix is used in the formulation of the strategy. IFE Matrix together with the matrix of EFE matrix formulation of the strategies and tools that can be utilized to evaluate how a company's performance in terms of internal as well as external force to be identified, either company's weaknesses as well as the advantages of a company. IFE matrix concept is almost the same with the Balanced Scorecard method when we wear. To create a matrix IFE and use some of the following steps: one of a company's success lies in its key internal factors. The internal audit process is done and we identify strengths and weaknesses in all areas of the business. To achieve this, we recommend that a company doing the identification of more or less 10 to 20 internal factors. If that number is more and more identification, than the better the IFE matrix. The first step to do is to log all the strengths and weaknesses that exist within the company, it would surely be implemented judiciously, and seobyektif may be specific as possible, so that later will be a percentage, ratio, and the comparative figures for an assessment.

The impact of visitor segments on the perception of the quality of the product of accommodation establishments

The impact of visitor segments on the perception of the quality of the product of accommodation establishments

The aim of the paper is to evaluate diff erences in the quality perception among particular segments of demand. Data for analysis were collected by means of the questionnaire survey among clients of accommodation establishments. The research in accommodation establishments succeeded to identify four factors of the perception of quality of services provided in those establishments, when only accommodation and catering services were taken into consideration. Age appeared to be an important criterion for the evaluation the of the quality of off ered services as the diff erences in the quality perception among particular age groups were proved for three of four identifi ed factors of the quality perception. The factors are as follows: “environment of the accommodation establishment”, “hygiene in accommodation establishment”, “service in the catering part of the establishment” and “quality of the meals”. The duration of stay as well as the gender of the respondents infl uences the quality of perception only in the perception of the “quality of meal” factor. Compared to the duration of stay, the repetition of the stay is a considerably important factor in causing the variability of the answers on the rate of the quality perception. The purpose of travel was also proven to be a criterion aff ecting the rate of the quality perception of the fi rst three factors, whereas the impact of the criterion “client’s travel companionship” was proven in case of the fi rst and third factor.

Development, validation and translation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillator training and placement bilingual questionnaire

With regards to the development and construct valida- tion of the questionnaire, the Kaiser–Meyer–Olkin meas- ure of sampling adequacy was 0.79 indicating sampling adequacy for EFA. The p-value for Bartlett’s test of sphe- ricity was < 0.001 indicating that there are worthwhile correlations among the items based on the correlation matrix. There are five factors with initial Eigenvalue > 1 (also demonstrated in scree plot, see Fig.  1). The re-run of EFA using promax oblique rotation showed that the communalities of all items > 0.25. Pattern matrix analy- sis showed that all items were loaded into the factors with factor loading > 0.4 (see Table 1 for the detailed fac- tor loadings after the initial run of EFA). The Cronbach’s alpha value for Factor 1 was 0.955 with 6 items loaded into it, suggesting that there are redundant items. When checked for redundancy, it was noted that item “The directions that point to the location of the AED are clear” carries very similar meaning with item “The signage that

Lecturer Support and Self-Efficacy on Students’ Off-Classroom Training Effectiveness

Lecturer Support and Self-Efficacy on Students’ Off-Classroom Training Effectiveness

Training effectiveness can be influenced by many factors. As for the study, training effectiveness is focused on the off-classroom training for students in order to understand their course, particularly a reading course like human resource management. The study focused on self-efficacy (internal factor) and lecturer support (external factor) in evaluating training effectiveness, which is a part of the training engagement theory that considers all of the employee and organizational factors in order to evaluate training effectiveness or engagement (Sitzmann & Weinhardt, 2018). Supervisor support was widely discussed in prior literature; however, research examining and focusing on lecturer support towards training effectiveness of students is still lacking. Thus, the study posed three research questions: 1) is there any significant relationship between lecturer support and training effectiveness?; 2) Is there any significant relationship between self-efficacy and training effectiveness?; and 3) what is the most influential factor that contributes to training effectiveness of agriculture students?

Namibia. Country Strategy Paper and National Indicative Programme for the period 2008-2013

Namibia. Country Strategy Paper and National Indicative Programme for the period 2008-2013

Water is the most limiting factor for development in an arid country like Namibia. While 85% of the population has access to a safe and reliable source of water, regional disparities remain enormous. GRN has made great strides in the past 15 years in improving rural water infrastructure, but less so in sanitation. Access to basic sanitation has progressed only slowly. Only 21% of rural households have toilet facilities compared to 89% in urban areas. Community- based management systems have been introduced in both water and sanitation sectors. Nevertheless, improvements in the most disadvantaged rural areas can only be achieved through expensive infrastructure projects – such as pipeline schemes to bring water from the Kunene River to the Northern regions, where ground water is brackish. The water and sanitation indicators are important components of the MDGs, improving the social and health conditions in the country, while at the same time unlocking rural economic and commercial activities. Road infrastructure fulfils a similar function, reducing economic transaction costs and providing access to basic social services (health and education). The constraints are two-fold, namely, the rapid deterioration of the main trunk roads and limited rural access roads. While more than half of the population lives in the northern communal areas, only 10% of the road network is located in this region. Furthermore, lack of access to micro-credit often constrains off-farm activities.

Effects of Fiber Weight Ratio, Structure and Fiber Modification onto Flexural Properties of Luffa Polyester Composites

Effects of Fiber Weight Ratio, Structure and Fiber Modification onto Flexural Properties of Luffa Polyester Composites

In the other cases (Figures 3(c)-(d)) we can remark that the matrix surrounding the fibers led to a good adhe- sion. This result confirmed the enhancement of me- chanical proprieties of composite reinforced with acety- lated and cyanoethylated fibers. Thus, when the Luffa fibers were treated with acetic anhydride and acryloni- trile, the gap is much less pronounced and an improved interface corroborated well the enhancement of the pre- viously mechanical properties observed in Table 1.

A Developed Multi Criteria Decision Making Model to Rank Different Scenarios of Electrical Power Generation in Egypt

A Developed Multi Criteria Decision Making Model to Rank Different Scenarios of Electrical Power Generation in Egypt

ANP is the generalized form of AHP method. While the AHP represents a problem with a uni-directional hierarchical relationship, the ANP allows for complex interrelationships among decision levels [19]. ANP is a multi-attribute, decision- making approach based on the logic, knowledge, and experience of the experts in the domain. ANP can act as a valuable help for decision making involving both tangible as well as intangible attributes that come with the model under study. ANP depends on the process of extracting managerial inputs, thus allowing for a structured communication among decision makers. Thus, it can be used as a qualitative tool for strategic decision-making problems [20]. The possible dependency among factors can only be determined by internal and external environmental analyses. The structural difference between a hierarchy and a network is shown in Fig. 1.

Evaluation of fractal dimensions from bitmap image (Part: Algorithms)

The work assembled the complex application for evaluation of main fractal characteristics from input image. New simple modifications of evaluation of positive cells according to appropriate scale were implemented. Detail description of theory for each method and description of evaluation process was included. Filtration modification (which is able to estimate the structure which belongs only to speci- fied scale) was introduced together with volumetric modification that allows selecting of optional ratio for determination of positive cells. Also, Richardson method and Slit-Island method were converted to algorithm form. Program was compiled for processing of the following projects about influence between fractal dimensions and mechanical properties of tested materials.

Design of Particulate-Reinforced Composite Materials

Design of Particulate-Reinforced Composite Materials

First of all, let us note that in engineering practice particles embedded in a matrix are usually coated by an additional material (an interface) between constituents (Fig. 1) in order to enhance various properties of composites, i.e. thermal, magnetic or dielectric. Surfactants are added to alleviate the settling problem. Thus, a particulate composite is made of three different phases. Such a class of problems is analysed for instance by Kamiński [24]. Since it is very difficult to estimate physical properties of an interface our analysis is limited to the considerations of two phase material demonstrated in Fig. 1b.

WHAT CONTRIBUTES TO STUDENTS’ SUCCESS IN LEARNING TO SPEAK ENGLISH

WHAT CONTRIBUTES TO STUDENTS’ SUCCESS IN LEARNING TO SPEAK ENGLISH

This study reveals that there are some factors that have contributed to the students’ success in learning speaking. Generally, the factors are categorized into internal and external factors. The internal factors involve motivations and interest. Motivation is divided into four types namely intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and integrative and instrumental motivation. Two of the subjects are affected by internal and instrumental motivation while others are affected by external and integrative motivations. The external factors that help students succeed in learning speaking include family, school condition (teachers) and society. In addition to internal and external factor, learning strategy and learning style also help students in learning speaking. Every student has their own way in learning to speak English. Two of them enjoy learning through audio, visual and tactile while the other two prefer to learn by doing, or what is known as kinesthetic.

Global crisis and investment activity in the republic of Kazakhstan

Global crisis and investment activity in the republic of Kazakhstan

For the past decade the country has settled arrears on credit facilities of IMF but bond holders have managed only to negotiate a debt restructuring on terms of 30% debt repayment. Argentina has been avoiding any external credits for ten years- and despite lots of “academic” forecasts, “The Day of justice” for Argentina has not come yet. Kazakhstan cannot and must not go through the expense of “anti- recessionary measures to rescue” - both businesses of different types of financial mediators/professional investors and inconsiderate investments of non-professional investors and reinter. International practice demonstrates that any credit ratings and investors’ interests can be sacrificed to national business interests. And in the countries where other actions are taken, sooner or later a revolution starts. The Republic needs to carry out a system-based secondary distribution of public resources in favour of more efficient businessmen-managing business holders. That in priority of this investment policy is arrangement of favour able conditions to develop a totally new business environment.

Multiplexed modulation of behavioral choice

Multiplexed modulation of behavioral choice

Stimuli in the environment, as well as internal states, influence behavioral choice. Of course, animals are often exposed to multiple external and internal factors simultaneously, which makes the ultimate determinants of behavior quite complex. We observed the behavioral responses of European leeches, Hirudo verbana, as we varied one external factor (surrounding water depth) with either another external factor (location of tactile stimulation along the body) or an internal factor (body distention following feeding). Stimulus location proved to be the primary indicator of behavioral response. In general, anterior stimulation produced shortening behavior, midbody stimulation produced local bending, and posterior stimulation usually produced either swimming or crawling but sometimes a hybrid of the two. By producing a systematically measured map of behavioral responses to body stimulation, we found wide areas of overlap between behaviors. When we varied the surrounding water depth, this map changed significantly, and a new feature – rotation of the body along its long axis prior to swimming – appeared. We found additional interactions between water depth and time since last feeding. A large blood meal initially made the animals crawl more and swim less, an effect that was attenuated as water depth increased. The behavioral map returned to its pre-feeding form after approximately 3 weeks as the leeches digested their blood meal. In summary, we found multiplexed impacts on behavioral choice, with the map of responses to tactile stimulation modified by water depth, which itself modulated the impact that feeding had on the decision to swim or crawl.
