Baba Md Deros,Sha'ri Mohd Yusof,Azhari Md. Salleh
Jurnal Kejuruteraan , 2007,
Abstract: This article is based on a survey conducted on the top management's perceptions and practices of critical success factors (CSFs) with respect to benchmarking implementation in Malaysian automotive components manufacturing companies. The main objectives of this paper is to provide empirical evidence on top management's practices of CSFs for implementing benchmarking among eight different companies categories, comprising of all respondents; quality certified; non-quality certified; Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs); large; 100% locally owned, 100% foreign owned; and joint venture companies.To achieve this objective, the authors developed a questionaire comprising of nine major CSFs and 49 elements, checked for reliability and validity by experts adn practitioners. The analyses from 68 respondent companies showed the CSFs for benchmarking implementation were practiced at low to moderatelevel. On overall, there is a significant difference between the CSFs perceived level of importance and extent of practice by the respondant companies. Pair samples t-test results showed there is a significant difference between the level of importance and practices in all CSFs in quality certified, large, SME, 100%, local and joint venture companies. The survey results also showed no significant difference in termsfo level of importance and practice of all the CSFs in 100% foreign companies. In non-quality certifiedcompanies there is no significant difference in terms of level of importance and practice except for four CSFs. Finally, the paper concludes with some suggestions on the steps on how to improve the CSFsadoption rate and thus enhanced business competitiveness and excellence in Malaysia automotive manufacturing comapanies.

Nor Kamaliana Khamis,Abu Bakar Sulong,Baba Md Deros
Asian Social Science , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v8n16p192
Abstract: Students can enhance their soft skills and learning experience through the use of group projects. However, evaluating group project performance has become very challenging. This paper presents the concept of group management in measuring individual performance in group projects in an academic setting. Individual performances in similar courses were also compared based on two consecutive semesters (Semesters 1 and 2). The respondents for this study were first year students who attended similar courses for both semesters. Performance measurement was based on peer review and lecturer evaluations. The criteria for these evaluations were similar for both semesters. The current study aims to determine the weaknesses and strengths of an individual in a group, and relate them with group performance based on the individual presentation marks. The study also analyzes the relationship between these two performance tools. Findings indicate that peer review and lecturer evaluations can be used to determine the performance of students in a group project, and that these two evaluation tools are not significantly correlated.

Abstract: Konsep pengajaran Pendidikan Berasaskan Hasil (OBE) mula diamalkan di Fakulti Kejuruteraan UKMbermula tahun 2005. Melalui pendekatan ini, setiap program perlu menggubal objektif pendidikanprogram dan hasil program setelah mengambil kira input daripada pihak berkepentingan sepertikerajaan, majikan, dan alumni. Justeru, kertas kerja ini membentangkan kaedah yang digunakanuntuk mengukur persepsi kepentingan serta pencapaian penyataan-penyataan objektif pendidikanprogram (PEO) dan hasil program (PO) bagi program-program kejuruteraan yang ditawarkan. Dalamkaedah ini, setiap penyataan dikenal pasti ciri-ciri yang membentuknya dan dinilai mengikut skalaLikert 1-5. Kaji selidik ini dihantar kepada industri dan alumni yang ada dalam pangkalan data LatihanIndustri dan Alumni Fakulti Kejuruteraan. Soalan yang ditanya berkisar kepada aras signifikanpenyataan tersebut atau pencapaian para graduan dan alumni. Keputusan kaji selidik ini mendapati ada beberapa komponen dalam penyataan-penyataan PEO dan PO sedia ada tidak dipersetujui olehkebanyakan pihak berkepentingan manakala ada komponen lain dalam penyataan yang sama masih boleh diterima. Ini membolehkan penyataan berkenaan boleh diperbaiki supaya dipersetujui oleh pihak berkepentingan.The teaching concept based on Outcome Based Education (OBE) has been implemented at the Faculty of Engineering, UKM beginning in 2005.Through this approach, each programme is required todevelopprogramme educational objectives and programme outcomes upon consultation with stakeholders such as government, employers and alumni. Hence, this paper presents a method which can be usedto measure stakeholders’ perception on importance and achievement of statements of the programme educational objectives (PEO) and programme outcomes (PO) for engineering programmes offered.In this method, for each statement, attributes that form the statements were identiTed and would be evaluated based on the 1-5 Likert scale. The questionnaire were sent to industry and alumni based on the Industrial Training and Alumni database of the Faculty of Engineering, and the questions asked are related to signiTcance level of the statement and the achievement of the graduates and alumni. The result of the survey found that there are indeed several components in the existing PEO and PO statements are not well accepted by many stakeholders, whereas other statements are accepted.Based on this result, the statement can be improved in order to meet the stakeholders, expectation.

Asian Social Science , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v8n16p232
Abstract: The main purpose of this survey is to get industrial employers’ feedback on the reasons for their lack of involvement in National Dual Training System (NDTS) organized by the Department of Skills Development, Ministry of Human Resources Malaysia. Industrial employers’ involvement and support is very important in ensuring NDTS implementation success. Therefore, it is very critical to identify factors and barriers that hinder industrial sectors from participating in NDTS program. A survey questionnaire was developed to act as a data collection instrument. Survey questionnaire was sent to 5,000 companies comprising of multinationals, small and medium-sized industries. However, only 509 companies returned the completed questionnaires giving a low response rate of 10.18%. Survey results revealed the following factors hinders industrial sectors from participating in NDTS program; they are: training culture, organizational structure, financial and physical resources, policies, NDTS awareness, employer’s commitment and technological factors. In addition, survey result showed respondents companies have good training culture; however, they tend to focus on-the-job training. Majority of respondents did not participate in the NDTS because they were not aware about its existence and no information or publicity materials made available to them. Therefore, the authors strongly suggest the Department of Skills Development, Ministry of Human Resources Malaysia to enhance their promotion and publicity campaign on NDTS program to industrial sectors.

Abstract: In recent market and global requirements, the desires to provide higher level of quality in products and services for increasing market shares continues competitively among the manufacturers to ensure customer satisfaction will return with consistent orders. The important of product and process optimization has caused manufacturers focus greater attention to design optimization in order to stay competitive in the world market. The understanding on the fundamental of basic experimentation will be a starting point to improve process yield, product performance and productivity of company-wide operation. Thus, a more reliable and effective experimental approach subsequently will be the right choice to study the possible design factors that satisfy customers and process compatibility. This study presents the philosophy and method applied for Taguchi method design of experiment. The concept such as quality should be designed into the product, quality loss function, determining the optimization condition for the product or process, designing product and process that insensitive to the influence of uncontrollable factors or noise, signal-to-noise ratio and orthogonal arrays among the important terms in application of Taguchi method design of experiment.

Hexagonal nano-crystalline boron carbonitride (h-BCN) films grown on Si (100) substrate have been precisely investigated. The films were synthesized by radio frequency plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition using tris-dimethylamino borane as a single-source molecular precursor. The deposition was performed by setting RF power at 400 - 800 W. The reaction pressure was at 2.6 Pa and the substrate temperature was recorded at 700°C - 800°C. Formation of the nano-crystalline h-BCN compound has been confirmed by X-ray diffraction analysis. The diffraction peaks at 26.3° together with a small unknown peak at 29.2° were elucidated due to the formation of an h-BCN structure. The films composed of B, C, and N atoms with different B-N, B-C, C-N chemical bonds in forming the sp2-BCN atomic configuration studied by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Orientation and local structures of the h-BCN hybrid were studied by near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) measurements. The dominant presence of p* and s* resonance peaks of the sp2

This paper explores the location of slaughter houses in the city outskirts, describes its functioning and explores its impact on the environment and health of residents living in its vicinity. A medium sized city of North India, Aligarh, was selected for the case study. The study is mainly based on primary sources of data collected through survey of city ouskirts, slaughter houses, villages and households located in its vicinity. For in-depth investigation, 2 slaughter houses located in the outskirts, 460 households living in the vicinity of these slaughter houses (0 to 3 km) were randomly selected for sampling. Data were collected with the help of questionnaire. Field surveys revealed that there were innumerable authorized and unauthorized slaughter houses inside the city, Makdoomnagar was the oldest one (1995), individual households in many parts of the city were slaughtering animals in one room, the city outskirts had 6 big slaughter houses and meat processing units and innumerable open illegal ones. Investigations revealed that all the slaughter houses suffer from very low hygienic standards posing both environment and health hazards due to discrete disposal of waste, highly polluted effluent discharge, burning and boiling of bones, hooves, fat, meat, etc. The results show that for the residents living in the immediate vicinity of the slaughter house, both the environmental conditions and their health conditions were worst.
