A Continuous Improvement and Monitoring Performance System: Monitor - Analysis - Action – Review (MAAR) Charts
Vito Romaniello,Paolo Renna,Vincenzo Cinque
IBIMA Business Review , 2011,
Abstract: The research presented in this paper concerns the development of a methodology for monitoring and continuous performance improvement. The proposed approach is derived from the classical Deming cycle adapted to a real industrial environment. The approach consists of four phases: Monitor, Analysis, Action and Review (MAAR); these phases are summarized in a single information panel that allows to improve the monitoring process. This paper presents a discussion of the real case study application of the methodology in area manufacturing of ANSALDO STS S.p.A. The case study discussed here shows the application of basic principles, management tools and techniques towards performance improvement in a manufacturing plant. The innovative issues of the MAAR approach developed regard: the possibility to apply the methodology to wide fields of enterprises (as maintenance, quality management, design, financial, etc.) and the real-manufacturing orientation. The results show the real benefits obtained by the implementation of the proposed methodology.
On Double-Headed Relative Clauses
Guglielmo Cinque
Linguística : Revista de Estudos Linguísticos da Universidade do Porto , 2011,
Abstract: The present article documents the presence in a number of languages and language families (as well as in various child languages) of relative clauses displaying simultaneously an internal and an external head, and considers the implications of this finding for the general theory of relative clauses.
Lo studente riflessivo : l’uso di dispositivi mobili tra formazione on-the job e PLN (Personal Learning Network)
Maria Cinque
Form@re : Open Journal per la Formazione in Rete , 2013,
Abstract: La formazione rivolta ad alcune tipologie di professioni richiede, oltre all’erogazione di contenuti teorici, un periodo di training svolto direttamente sul campo sotto la supervisione di personale esperto. In questa fase l’apprendimento avviene mediante esperienza diretta, sebbene controllata , e la sua efficacia si basa non semplicemente sull’imitazione di una pratica, ma sul processo metacognitivo che su tale pratica viene attivato. Occorre per questo che il docente o il tutor conduca lo studente nel raggiungimento di capacità riflessive rispetto alla prassi messa in atto. Alcuni progetti di mobile learning svolti in contesti diversi – un policlinico universitario e una scuola alberghiera – hanno dimostrato come l’utilizzo didattico di tecnologie senza fili consenta, da un lato, di rendere esplicita la conoscenza tacita insita nelle attività di training, dall’altro di rendere meno formale l’apprendimento delle materie tradizionali. Attraverso questa prospettiva il mobile learning esce dal contesto puramente istituzionale, identificandosi come mezzo idoneo a supportare i momenti formativi che avvengono più o meno intenzionalmente nella vita quotidiana.
Intelligent Multi-Agent Based Information Management Methods to Direct Complex Industrial Systems  [PDF]
Danilo Avola, Luigi Cinque, Giuseppe Placidi
Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2012.46038
Abstract: In recent years, the increasingly complexity of the logistic and technical aspects of the novel manufacturing environments, as well as the need to increase the performance and safety characteristics of the related cooperation, coordi-nation and control mechanisms is encouraging the development of new information management strategies to direct and man- age the automated systems involved in the manufacturing processes. The Computational Intelligent (CI) approaches seem to provide an effective support to the challenges posed by the next generation industrial systems. In particular, the Intelligent Agents (IAs) and the Multi-Agent Systems (MASs) paradigms seem to provide the best suitable solutions. Autonomy, flexibility and adaptability of the agent-based technology are the key points to manage both automated and information processes of any industrial system. The paper describes the main features of the IAs and MASs and how their technology can be adapted to support the current and next generation advanced industrial systems. Moreover, a study of how a MAS is utilized within a productive process is depicted.
Modeling and Analyzing the Dependability of Short Range Wireless Technologies via Field Failure Data Analysis
Gabriella Carrozza,Marcello Cinque
Journal of Software , 2009, DOI: 10.4304/jsw.4.7.707-716
Abstract: Direct analysis of failures from the field of application is an effective practice to understand the actual dependability behavior of an operational system. However, despite its wide use over the last four decades on a large variety of systems, field data analysis has rarely been applied to wireless networks. Users accessing the Internet ubiquitously through these networks are increasing, and they expect the same dependability level they already experience on wired networks. But how can we analyze the dependability level of a wireless network? The article defines a novel combined approach to model and analyze the dependability of short range wireless technologies exploiting field data. Through the experience gained from extensive failure analysis of Bluetooth networks, the paper shows how field failure data can play a key role to fill the gap on understanding the dependability behavior of wireless networks.
Organised Behaviour and Organised Identity  [PDF]
Vincenzo Ruggiero
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2010.11003
Abstract: There is growing body of literature which offers reviews of the concepts of organised crime and political vio- lence, while documenting the official efforts to address such concepts jointly and treat them as a single issue. It would be intriguing to investigate how members of organised criminal groups and violent political groups re- spectively react to such official efforts. In my own memory, when the ‘mafiosi’ happened to share a prison in- stitution with members of the Red Brigades, they would steer away from those idealist Communists who got nothing out of killing. The former, when overcoming the disgust they felt in the presence of those who in their eyes adopted an incomprehensible political stance, and perhaps even a despicable sexual lifestyle, would simply suggest: “don’t make revolution, make money, you cretin!”. The latter, in their turn, would deal with the former as one deals with yet a different version of the economic and political power against which they fought. Echoes of this are found in an example coming from Greece itself, where the Courts have attempted to term ‘common’ rather than ‘political’ the offences attributed to the Revolutionary Organisation November 17. The fact that or- ganised crime is guided by material motivations and terrorism by political ones may be seen as irrelevant by of- ficial agencies pursuing the objective of degrading the ‘enemy’ whoever that might be. Therefore, the ceremo- nies of degradation, including the choice of an ad hoc vocabulary, may well serve the task, as the mad, the drug user and the terrorist constitute an undistinguishable mob in the face of which quibbling differences may just obstruct the criminal justice process. The purpose of this paper is to try and clarify a number of issues that we encounter when dealing with organised crime and political violence respectively.
Editorial Intelligent Learning Systems in Banking and Finance  [PDF]
Vincenzo Pacelli
Journal of Intelligent Learning Systems and Applications (JILSA) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jilsa.2011.32007
Abstract: The non-linear and often obscure relations that govern the economic and financial variables, the presence of significant amounts of data and the failures of the con-ventional mathematical and statistical models are only some reasons which should encouraged a growing de-velopment of the studies on the application of the intelli-gent learning systems in banking and finance.[...]
Economic Development: Threats and Opportunities  [PDF]
Vincenzo Ruggiero
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2012.33016
Abstract: Economic initiative, by definition, is a human and social effort devoted to the collective wellbeing. However, economic development in general, along with more or less measurable benefits, may cause harm to people and the environment. This aspect tends to be obscured by advocates of the currently predominant philosophy (or ideology) known as neo-liberalism. This paper sets off with a critical analysis of the axioms of neo-liberalism focusing on the variable risk and on the harm provoked by economic development on the environment. Straddling legality and illegality, harmful economic conduct is then equated to a specific form of white collar crime, while an attempt is made to trace in the history of economic thought itself the embryo of a destructive rationale. After considering how harm to individuals and the environment is hidden through ideological strategies, the paper looks at some refreshing proposals to turn the threats of economic development into human opportunities.
Estressores vivenciados pelos familiares no processo de doa??o de órg?os e tecidos para transplante
Cinque, Valdir Moreira;Bianchi, Estela Regina Ferraz;
Revista da Escola de Enfermagem da USP , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0080-62342010000400020
Abstract: the purpose of the present study is to identify the stressors experienced by family members during the process of organ donation, evince the most distressful moment of the process and verify the association of variable with the family members' experience. the sample consisted of 16 family members that were making the donation through a organ search organization, in s?o paulo, in 2007. a structured instrument was used, containing question addressing the family members' experience and their evaluation of the donation process. the main stressors reported were: dissatisfaction with the service (31.25%); receiving a harsh notification about the individual's brain death (62.50%); and the wait to release the body (62.50%), which was considered the most distressful moment of the process. using the phi coefficient, it was found that there was a moderate association between the variables of interest with the family's experience. in conclusion, the donation process is stressful on the family and nursing care is necessary in each stage of the process to offer support and reduce the distress on the family members.
