The Use of the Youth Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (YLS/CMI) in Scotland

The Use of the Youth Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (YLS/CMI) in Scotland

The Youth Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (YLS/ CMI) is a generic risk assessment tool to assess the risk of future off ending in young people aged between 12 and 17. The tool is used in a number of areas in Scotland but had not previously been comprehensively tested for use with this population. The study looked at the results from more than 1,100 YLS/CMI risk assessments and found that it was a good predictor of re- off ending for both males and females. The fi ndings showed that the YLS/CMI was not very accurate at assessing the likelihood of re- off ending if it was used with young people outside of the intended age range. The study also highlighted that when practitioners used the professional override then the accuracy of the YLS/CMI was often reduced. The fi ndings support the use of the YLS/CMI within social work for information practice and decision-making, but highlight the need for further research to better understand how practitioners apply their professional judgement.

Knowledge, attitude and practice of pharmacists on medication therapy management: a survey in Hospital Pulau Pinang, Penang, Malaysia

Knowledge, attitude and practice of pharmacists on medication therapy management: a survey in Hospital Pulau Pinang, Penang, Malaysia

MTM service can be also sorted into levels to make performing of this service more scalable and applicable. There are three levels of MTM service. First level is Ad- herence Management, and this is the lowest level. In this level pharmacists ensure that patients are adhering to the medications that they take for certain type of disease such as; hypertension, diabetes or dyslipidemia. Pharma- cists need general clinical knowledge to apply this level. The importance of Adherence Management is to en- hance health outcomes and reduce costs linked to lack of adherence. The second level is Interventions on Drug-Related Problems. In this level pharmacists apply Medication Therapy Review Service (MTRS) to ensure safe and effective use of all medications that are used by patients. There are two types of MTRS: Comprehensive and Targeted. In Comprehensive type, pharmacists re- view all medications taken by patients including pre- scribed, non-prescribed, over the counter and herbal medications. Then pharmacists detect if there is any problem associated with these medications and try to re- solve it. In Targeted MTRS, pharmacists assess specific actual drug related problem. This happens after provid- ing comprehensive service first, so pharmacists already have information about all medications taken by pa- tients. The third and highest level of MTM service is Disease State Management Service. In this level pharma- cists cover all chronic diseases that patient is diagnosed with. Pharmacists participate not only in drug related problem interventions, but also in non-drug therapy, lifestyle modifications and other activities that optimize health outcomes [7].

Outcomes analysis-the role of case management

Outcomes analysis-the role of case management

In summary, the two levels of case management have been presented for the effective management of outcomes. The approach to outcomes management using both the individual and administrative level of case management practice can be used as a template in a wide variety of settings and across primary, secondary and tertiary levels of practice. The necessity for different levels of education and experience for both point of care and administrative case managers is justified based on the different skill sets required. The approach to outcomes management is different for both, in that case managers at the point of service or microsystem level are focused on care coordination and the collection of data concerning financial, clinical, satisfaction, functional and quality outcomes of individual clients. These data are provided to the case management administrator who analyzes the data, adjusts protocols and approaches, and provides

Improving the inventory control policy of TenCate Grass

Improving the inventory control policy of TenCate Grass

Chapter 5. Analysis of results consists of the development of the Monte Carlo simulation and the determination of the number of replications required to get reliable results. The Monte Carlo simulation gives insight on the impact of using the proposed inventory control policy instead of the current inventory control policy and it appeared that using the proposed model will reduce the costs with more than 28% without affecting the cycle service level, which has even improved from 0.89 to 0.94. However, it should be noted that there is more spread in the results of the cycle service level in the proposed model compared to the current model, therefore, the increase in cycle service level may not be maintained in practice. Thereafter, the Monte Carlo simulation is verified and validated, showing that the Monte Carlo simulation meets its intended goals and the cost values based on the actual demand of 2018 fall within the ranges found by the Monte Carlo simulation. Furthermore, it is checked whether the parameters of the current policy are used in practice, which appears not to be the case. As a result, the overall costs and in particular the order costs can be reduced when one of both policies is actually used in practice. This assumption has been checked by determining the course of the inventory if the proposed policy was used in practice compared to how it actually went in practice. It appeared that the company was not always able to have some inventory of products on hand, and therefore, it may be the case that they were not always able to deliver MTS products directly. Even though it seems that the total costs are reduced, when someone keeps going on like it is in practice, there is a chance of facing stockouts which can be avoided by using the proposed policy. Therefore, it can be assumed that honouring the proposed policy is advisable.

Application of Optimal Policies for a Two-stage Product Supply Chain Management Inventory System

Application of Optimal Policies for a Two-stage Product Supply Chain Management Inventory System

A significant amount of literatures investigates the benefits of inventory pooling in product supply chain system with more than one echelon. Netessine and Rudi [11], in their work concentrated on the gains and the values of inventory pooling problem for substitutable products. Substitutable products occur when full substitution without stock-out is allowed. The authors consider cases when the distributors hold inventory purchased from the supplier when the supplier holds inventory. However, they do not give any result on the total inventory level of the items being combined but submits that optimal inventory levels of the substituted items increase for some items after pooling. In Sukun et al [14], they considered two echelon supply chain system with two retailers and one common supplier who bears the inventory risk. Their focus is particularly essential because of the benefits of pooling on the ability to find optimal inventory levels. However, they only considered cases in which the wholesale price is fixed without service level requirement. In [6], they assumed multivariate normal demands and based their findings on the benefits of inventory pooling over reserved inventory system, by using copulas to model dependence structure between demands. However, Xiaoli et al [16] considered a two-echelon supply chain policy with single product single period supplier and two retailers where the supplier takes all the supply and

An assessment of the impact of inventory management on customer service - a case of Alliance One Tobacco Malawi Limited

An assessment of the impact of inventory management on customer service - a case of Alliance One Tobacco Malawi Limited

At AOTML, production and engineering departments emphasized that materials must be made available at all times. However, not all times were the materials to be available due to factors such as extended lead times and incapable suppliers which eventually lead to excess inventories when deliveries were done. This was when the materials requirement planning (MRP) was required to assist in managing the inventory. The main objective of any inventory system was to ensure that materials were available when needed. This was why MRP was employed, to make sure that the lowest possible level of inventory was maintained. AOTML as a processing and manufacturing plant was exposed to uncertainties in its production programs as indicated earlier on in the introduction. Furthermore, industrial strikes and machine breakdown compounded to the uncertainties that were mentioned. It was from this background that MRP came to ensure that inventory was made available at the appropriate time. Wild T (2002) describes MRP as a basic dependent demand concept that allows to have stock when it is needed and to have none the rest of the time. Baily et al (2008) assert that MRP is a standard system for calculating the quantities of components, sub-assemblies and material required to carry out a production program for complex products. It did not only control what item were purchased and in what quantities, but also the timing of its arrival through computerised systems, narrates Muller, M (2003). From another perspective, Waters D, (2009) suggested that MRP uses the master production schedule, along with other relevant information, to plan the supply of materials. Quayle M, (2006) agreed with the above statements and said MRP was a system of supplying the number of components required to produce a known quantity of finished assemblies.

Organizational Factors Affecting Customer Relationship Management in Service Companies: Case of Moroccan Banks

Organizational Factors Affecting Customer Relationship Management in Service Companies: Case of Moroccan Banks

Few studies in this area have been carried out in Morocco. EL Koraichi (2014) conducted a survey about 47 Moroccan commercial banks. He shows that despite the anticipated potential, the expected benefits of CRM solutions are still limited. The use of CRM solutions in the Moroccan banking sector remains in its elemental state, it focuses mainly on gathering customer information at the branch level while the analysis and use of these information is performed at headquarters. Similarly, the basic operations of the bank occupy much of the working time of the bank's agents at the expense of bank value-added services, including the CRM solutions. On the other hand, a large part of banks adopting CRM solutions do not measure the cost of the relationship with their customers.

incorporating more elements of the services management model. Operator E is the last mobile telecommunication entrant of the Sri Lankan market, commencing its operation by adopting managed services at level 5 (services & capacity management model) in 2008. Operator D engaged a senior cross functional team to study the feasibility of entering a long-term service management engagement with a suitable managed service provider. Operators A & B also expressed their willingness to enter a services management engagement after an in-depth study of the pros and cons of adopting services management. Operator C, being a government owned company, has a very strong labour union and will therefore find it challenging to adopt services management in the near future. As operator B’s parent company is considering selling the company, the management of operator B is of the view that entering any long-term services management contract would not be appropriate at this point of time.

Assessment of Waste Management Practice in Health Institution: A Case Study of University College Hospital Ibadan, Nigeria

On educational level, 100% of the health workers have tertiary education; this level of education served as prerequisite for practice of major medical profession. While among the waste handlers, 23.3% and 10.0% of them have secondary education and primary education respectively, as ability to read and write is the prerequisite for their activities. Patients with Tertiary education claimed the largest percentage (43.3%), followed by those with secondary and primary education with the proportion of 40.0% and 16.7% respectively. Among the residents, those with tertiary education account for 73.3% and those with secondary education represent 26.7%, all of them have formal education. The questionnaire was evenly distributed among the health workers to ensure equal participation. Therefore, this result follows this pattern as nurses, doctors and pathologists have the same proportion of 22.2%, while waste handlers accounts for 33.4%. As at the time of conducting the interview the National Minimum wage was pegged at #18,000, 41.3% of the respondents earn above #100,000 and bulk of them were found among the health workers while 18.0% earn amount less than #20,000 who are majorly found among the waste handler.

The mediating effect of knowledge in the relationship between inventory management practices and performance: the case of micro retailing enterprises

The mediating effect of knowledge in the relationship between inventory management practices and performance: the case of micro retailing enterprises

Inventory management is among key functions in a business operation particularly in meeting high customer’s demand (Baron et al., 2010). This function requires a balance between fulfilling the demands of customers and keeping sufficient supply of merchandises (Heizer and Render, 2014, p. 512). Ultimately, its fundamental aim is to turn over inventory as quickly as possible without losing sales (Gitmann and Zutter, 2012). Among the major advantages of systematic inventory management are to reduce costs related to inventory holding, stock-out costs as well as purchasing costs by buying in quantity and speculate on price movements (Jonsson and Mattsson, 2008; Koumanakos, 2008; Basu and Wang, 2011). Inventory management also helps to improve firm’s production scheduling, production and delivery lead times (Jonsson and Mattsson, 2008) and ultimately increases the overall firm performance (Koumanakos, 2008). Trade-off decisions between costs and the level of required sales target often produces a complex decision making. De Vries (2011) argued that finding a proper balance between quality of services and costs is challenging as it generates pressures on many other aspects of production activities (Pong and Mitchell, 2012). Organisations should be able to recognise how to maintain sufficient stocks for continuous production to meet customer’s demand as well as to avoid losses as a result of running out of stockpiles. In this case, the knowledge of inventory management among owners/managers and staff is crucial to handle issues in inventory management.

Inventory Management System For Multi Level Goods

Inventory Management System For Multi Level Goods

Basically, inventory can be described as a number of items, goods and materials that kept in as a stock by a group of people with a different intentions and categories. Whereby, an Inventory System can be described as a process of tracking a stock that is available at the stor. Concerning about this project, JTKP store of Faculty of Engineering Technology, is selected as a case study, by which the best practice inventory control system for variety storage of goods can be improvise by implement a programmed system. The objective of this study is to design an inventory record system at Factory 2 store, to programmed the manual inventory system with setup triggering stock out limit and to implement the system in Factory 2 store. In addition, XAMPP server was used as a main software in developing and managing the inventory system. This project also will focus on two types of inventory category, which is Purchased Raw Material and Supplies. Factory 2 Inventory System has reduced the handling time in terms of requesting the stock manually, which is done through manual forms previously. Moreover this system comes with triggering system concerning on the stock out limit. For instance, when the product is less than fifteen, a warning sign or a notification stock out limit will appear on the web page. Hence, by this kind of announcement, it ease the customer to place their order and to review on the current stock. Based on the outcome, several practices such as sending notification through email, viewable system in real web and adding the supplier database on the system are recommended in future.

IT SERVICE OPTIMIZATION SERVICE INVENTORY

IT SERVICE OPTIMIZATION SERVICE INVENTORY

In order to judge IT’s success in delivering services at agreed upon levels, it is necessary to monitor and report results. Monitoring allows IT to react when problems are threatening to impact the business, and also for client business units to know whether they are getting their money’s worth from IT services. Ideally, proactive performance management practices such as capacity planning are used to ensure problems are addressed before service level requirements are jeopardized. Performance issues can never be avoided completely because circumstances are constantly changing. Business plans, forecasts and technologies change, and unpredicted events occur. That is why IT Service Optimization, like Total Quality Management, Six Sigma, or the Service Level Management sub-process of ITIL, calls for continuous analysis and adjustment. Problems are continually detected and remedied by making adjustments or changes to correct those problems.

systematic reviews of the topic. As described above (and demonstrated in fi gure 1), the number of endpoints that might be affected by a generic service intervention is large when compared with those affected by targeted service or clinical interventions. 11 Ensuring that the range of salient endpoints is captured requires expert knowledge. In the case of the HANDOVER project this was acquired from the scienti fi c management commit- tee, informed by an inventory of endpoints used in pre- vious reviews. 12–15 Service interventions are often designed to improve the quality and safety of care, that is, reduce the number of adverse events. Each of these events is associated with a possible contingent cost saving. In the case of a cost utility/bene fi t evaluation, each of these events has to be valued (in the sense that a preference weighting/utility must be assigned). It would be dif fi cult to assign cost savings or utilities to each endpoint because there are so many. Yet, assigning one utility to cover all endpoints seems too coarse given the very different nature of the salient endpoints. Our solution was to categorise the endpoints, on the basis of the severity and duration of the associated morbidity, in order to provide a manageable number of categories.

THE ROLE OF RAW MATERIAL MANAGEMENT IN PRODUCTION OPERATIONS

THE ROLE OF RAW MATERIAL MANAGEMENT IN PRODUCTION OPERATIONS

The inventory management (IM) practices of small and medium scale enterprises in Finland and Greece were studied by Chikan and Whybark, (1990) to identify the experiences of managers concerning IM. In Finland, 15 case studies of IM were undertaken, including examining the role of IM in corporate planning, inventory decision-making and performance measurement. The findings revealed that IM decisions are made at the operational level with minimal guidance from the top. Furthermore, the lack of accurate, real-time and suitable aggregate information of material flows and stock levels prevented these enterprises from setting precise quantitative goals for IM. Furthermore, financial pressures were identified as forcing the enterprises to reduce their inventories, which eventually led to internal as well as external stock outs (Chikan & Whybark, 1990).

Fuzzy ABC Classification in Inventory Management for a Service Sector Firm

Fuzzy ABC Classification in Inventory Management for a Service Sector Firm

There are thousands of stock items in inventory management system. To control all stock items in same level is meaningless and very difficult. To determine to what extent the various stock items in stock to control, they should be classified according to their criticality or value. That determined classes are ranked according to degree of control. Although ABC Analysis has guidelines for class distinction, companies generally set their own distinction point of each class. Therefore, percentages of class A, B and C vary. So the upper and lower limits used in ABC stock classification method does not specify exactly a value. This causes to bounce of a stock item to the upper class with very little difference from its successor in classification. This means sometimes incorrect results or incorrect evaluations. In other words, there is a functional instability in ABC class membership. Actually there is a fuzziness in such cases. This study involves performing stock classification via C-Means method belonging to Fuzzy Clustering then comparing the results with ABC Analysis. The application set in SVS Telecommunication Company which generally works on satellite communications systems.
