LANGKAWI GEODIVERSITY REPOSITORY SYSTEM: THE ACTION RESEARCH-BASED APPROACH
Aziz Deraman,Jamaiah H. Yahaya
Journal of Sustainability Science and Management , 2011,
Abstract: The development of a geodiversity information and repository system is a valuable solution that can assure the management and preservation of geological datasets are more interesting, reachable and shared to the public at large. This research was embarked upon based on the realisation that, with the advancement of information and communication technology, knowledge about geodiversity might be better represented and explored. This research attempted to establish how geodiversity components and their relationships could be modelled into various forms of digital object (DO) to enable access and sharing of geodiversity information. The objectives of this research were (1) to establish a data model for geodiversity repository, (2) to design and implement Geodiversity Repository System, and (3) to capture the Langkawi geodiversity data into a single repository specifically for tourism industries. This development was conducted through an action-research approach which comprised in five phases: diagnosing, action planning, action taking, evaluating and specifying learning. This paper presents the phases in the action-research cycle for the development of Langkawi Geodiversity System, also known as MyGeo-RS. It highlights the theoretical architecture, the design of geodiversity repository and the implementation. The data captured and provided in this system is suitable for tourism industries but gives little contribution to scientific applications. This will be the limitation of current design and architecture and further work needs to be done to accommodate the scientific requirements.

Abstract: Business process reengineering (BPR) is not just the program of business process improvement, but it improves the operations of the business process as a whole. Workflow Reengineering Methodology (WRM) is comprehensive, covering the process improvement effort from the identification of a need for change to the final implementation and maintenance of the improved workflow. Our research has proposed an enhanced methodology of WRM to suit small and medium enterprise (SME). A conceptual model of BPR for SMEs has been proposed and applied in a case study collaborated with a cargo company di Malaysia. The architecture of the integrated system was designed to proof the practicality of the model specifically for SMEs environment. In this case study, the priorities of the company were the improvement in administration, customer services and operations divisions. Improvement of the operation in these three divisions was implemented by introducing a computerized system that focuses on the improvements in the effectiveness of the speed of processing time, cost efficiency and human resources as well as an increase in level of customer service. The case study shows the proposed enhanced WRM is appropriate and practical for SMEs.

IBIMA Business Review , 2011,
Abstract: The development of a repository system is a valuable solution that can assure the preservation of geological information and would provide a more sustainable tool for future references. This research attempted to establish on how geological information could be modeled into various forms of digital object (DO) to enable access and sharing of geological information. The main objective of this research was to provide a sustainable and maintainable repository system that would preserve geological data in an efficient manner. In this effort, the Langkawi Geodiversity data will be captured, modeled and kept in a single repository system. Samples were collected from Langkawi geoparks and analysed in order to understand the complexity of the information needed as well as their relationships. The DO structure and definition were formulated based on the collected samples and tested to a certain level of optimization. With regard to toolset design and implementation, a commercial database engine was used to implement the development of the repository named as MyGeo-RS. The Langkawi geodiversity data was captured digitized and populated into the repository and was published. This paper presents the development of MyGeo-RS which includes the architecture, the design of geodiversity repository and the implementation. The preserved data provided by this system is suitable for tourism and public users and at the same time would also contribute to scientific applications.

International Journal of New Computer Architectures and their Applications , 2011,
Abstract: In the recent years, the Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products are being increasingly used in the world of software development. Therefore, evaluating and selecting appropriate COTS product is one of the most critical activities in COTS-based system development. Unfortunately, many methods that have been proposed in previous studies for evaluating and selecting COTS software are still have many limitations and lack to apply and accept as a formal method in the industry. So without an effective method for evaluating and selecting COTS products, the time spent on selecting the suitable COTS software may offset the advantages of using it. This paper outlines and discusses the common problems in existing methods and presents the main processes and evaluation criteria (nonfunctional requirements) that are required for evaluating and selecting COTS software through theoretical and empirical studies which goal is to develop new framework to evaluate and select COTS software.

Journal of Sustainability Science and Management , 2008,
Abstract: In this information age, most businesses are highly dependent on the availability of ICT services, especially in software application components. The interest in the acquisition of a high quality software has increased among various stakeholders. However, some pertaining problems are still being debated such as: (i) determining the quality of software product; (ii) defining mechanism for assessing software product quality; (iii) ensuring and offering software quality guarantee; and (iv) ensuring the continuous improvement of quality of software product. Users are concerned with the quality of software delivered and they expect the software to be in good quality and meet their prescribed standard. Therefore, a practical mechanism for assessment and certification is required to resolve these uncertainties. Findings from previous empirical study conducted in Malaysia agreed that with certification embedded and granted to the software might resolve the uncertainties and suspicion on the status and standing of software product. Based on survey and literature findings, main quality attributes have been identified which are crucial to the proposed certification framework. Two distinct models of certification are developed i.e. SCfM_prod and SPAC based on product and process quality approaches respectively. This paper focuses on software certification model based on product quality approach.

Journal of Agricultural Extension , 2012,
Abstract: The study was conducted to determine the sources of awareness of climate change and ascertain the perception of the effects among sesame producers in the Southern Agricultural Zone of Nasarawa State, Nigeria. A multistage random sampling technique was used in selecting 180 sesame farmers that participated in the study. Descriptive statistics were used in analyzing data. Major results show that both males and females mostly (40%) between the ages of 31-40 years were involved in sesame production. The level of education was low. Increased rains, insect infestation and torrential downpours were perceived as effects of climate change. Sesame farmers’ had adapted to such changes through the use of chemicals, insect powders, early planting and early harvesting. Results also show that extension agents, radio and television were the major sources of awareness of the effects of climate change. The study concluded with the recommendation that farmers’ awareness of the devastating effects of climate change is very critical for helping them adapt to climate change and need to be urgently strengthened by extension service so as to sustain sesame production even in the event of climate change.

Abstract: The research analyzed the land tenure system among ricefarmers in Awe Local Government Area of Nasarawa State,Nigeria. Two hundred and forty (240) farmers were sampled bya multi stage sampling procedure and used as respondents forthe study. Well structured questionnaires were used for data collection.The main means of data analysis were percentages andcorrelation. Findings revealed that 46.7 percent of the respondentswere within the age range of 31-40 years. Majority (77.9%) ofthe respondents were married and full time farmers. The predominantsystem of land ownership among the respondents wasby inheritance. Land fragmentation was perceived to be themajor constraints to land ownership in the study area. Theresults further showed that farm size correlated positively andsignificantly with annual income (r=0.519, p<0.001) and theyield significantly and positively correlated with marital status(r=0.243, p<0.001), annual income (r=0.604, p<0.001) and farmsize (r=0.727, p<0.001). The problems of land tenure systemthat affects rice production as revealed by the study were Landfragmentation, Excessive land ownership, Land litigation andExpropriation. The study recommended that legislation givenrice farmers title to land should be enforced by government inconsideration of the fact that rice production need to improve tomeet the demand of the teaming populace in the study area.
