    In the current business environment large corporations are constantly seeking to adapt their strategies. Benchmarking is an important tool for continuous improvement and decision-making. Benchmarking is a methodology that determines which aspects are the most important to be improved upon, and it proposes establishing a competitive parameter in an analysis of the best practices and processes, applying continuous improvement driven by the best organizations in their class. At the beginning of 2008, GTB (Gas TransBoliviano S.A.) contacted several South American gas transportation companies to carry out a regional benchmarking study in 2009. In this study, the key performance indicators of the South American companies, whose reality is similar, for example, in terms of prices, availability of labor, and community relations, will be compared. Within this context, a comparative study of the results, the comparative evaluation among natural gas transportation companies, is becoming an essential management instrument to help with decision-making.

    2017-05-01

    Full Text Available It is common practice in Benefit - Cost analysis to consider freight transport time savings (FTTS as a benefit for both transport producing and consuming companies. While transportation projects and policies resulting in FTTS are expected to have a positive effect on carriers’ performance reducing time related transport costs and improving service, this is not always the case for the demand side of the transport market. Using System Dynamics in order to model the internal supply chain of a transport using company and simulate several scenarios, we argue that FTTS do not necessarily translate to benefit for shippers, but their effect depends strongly on the structure of the company’s decision making process.

    Transport volume in the Slovak Republic is growing continuously every year. This rising trend is influenced by the development of car industry and its suppliers. Slovak republic has also a geographic strategy position in middle Europe from the side of transport corridors (east-west and north-south). The development of transport volume in freight transport depends on the transport and business processes between the European Union and China and it is an opportunity for Slovak republic to obtain transit transport flows. In the Slovak Republic, road transport has a dominant position in the transport market. The volume of road transport has gradually increased over the past years. The increase of road transport is reflected on the highways and speed roads in regions which have higher economic potential. The increase of rail transport as seen on the main rail corridors is not as significant as in road transport. Trade globalization also has an influence on the increase of transport volume in intermodal transport. Predicted increase in transport volume for this transport mode is from 2,3 mil ton per year at present to 8 mil ton in the year 2020. Selection of transport mode and carrier is an important aspect for logistic management, because companies (customers) want to reduce the number of carriers which they trade and they create the system of several key carriers. Bigger transport volume and more qualitative transport service give a possibility to reduce transport costs. This trend is positive for carriers too, because the carriers can focus only on the selected customers and provide more qualitative services. The paper is focused on the selection of transport mode based on the proposed methodology. The aims of the paper are, definition of criteria which directly influence the selection of transport modes, determination of criteria based on the subjectively methods, creation of process for the selection of transport modes and practical application of proposed

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this paper is to provide a basic overview of the application of Activity-Based Costing in an urban mass transport company which operates land public transport via buses and trolleys within the city. The case study was conducted using the Activity-Based Methodology in order to calculate the true cost of individual operations and to measure the profitability of particular transport lines. The case study analysis showed the possible effects of the application of the Activity-Based Costing for an urban mass transport company as well as the limitations of using the ABC methodology in the service industry. With regards to the application of the ABC methodology, the primary limitation of the accuracy of the conclusions is the quality of the non-financial information which had to be gathered throughout the implementation process. A basic limitation of the accurate data acquisition is the nature of the fare system of the transport company which does not allow the identification of the route that is taken by an individual passenger. The study illustrates the technique of ABC in urban mass transport and provides a real company example of information outputs of the ABC system. The users indicated that, the ABC model is very useful for profitability reporting and profit management. Also, the paper shows specific application of the Activity-Based Methodology in conditions of urban mass transport companies with regional specifics.

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available Small and medium sized road freight transport companies located in Hungary are facing strong competition on the logistics market. An advanced cost management system supporting decisions on capacity allocations or pricing may be a competitive advantage for them and indirectly for the whole economy as well. Still, they generally apply simple, traditional cost calculation regimes, potentially sufficient in case of a homogeneous service portfolio. Nevertheless, road haulage companies with heterogeneous service structures may witness information distortions when using traditional costing methods. So it might be recommended for them to introduce better costing principles. To support an improved transport costing, a multi-level full cost allocation model has been set up and tested in this paper. The research results have pointed out that such a methodological development accompanied by the extension of the data collection mechanism can contribute to making the cost management systems of road freight transport companies more effective.

This study defines the TC-8 group, a group of transport in tourism related companies, in order to answer the main questions:To what extent is climate change addressed in the CSR reports of transport companies? Climate change is mentioned and receives attention in all of the company reports analysed, however,overall the transport sector shows that in comparison to the GRI/KPMG (2007 survey, it under-performs. Are the companies just reporting direct emissions from production or also broader emissions from the use of the products? Half of these companies report emissions; some include direct and indirect emissions. Further actions can be mentioned such as, companies participating in forums discussing solutions to climate change, assuming shared responsibilities and employing measures such as reducing energy consumption by runningtheir own photovoltaic power unit or planning for a CO2 neutral operation by 2012.

    Full Text Available The reputation of companies within the transport industry is influenced by competitive dynamics within the sector: low-cost flights, the attractiveness of destinations, online user-generated content about users’ experiences, and more. At the same time, social media provides a means for companies to manage issues of tourism intangibles. Thus, it is relevant to analyse transport reputation in the digital environment, taking into consideration the resources for managing these intangibles. This paper presents a method for measuring transport reputation based on an analysis of tourism consumers’ digital opinions and passengers’ comments about their experiences with these firms. The use of social media, such as TripAdvisor and Facebook, conjugated with business intelligence tools and complemented by data mining techniques, can contribute to the development of metrics that consider intangibles like emotions and experiences, with the aim of measuring, analysing, and visualizing the complex relationships between these intangibles and transport companies’ reputations. The results present the impacts of these intangibles through clusters and positioning maps focusing on these issues. This investigation contributes to our knowledge about airlines and terrestrial transport companies that seek to differentiate their positioning in tourism markets through their reputations.

    2016-07-01

    Offer an alternative method to assess operational performance of companies in transport infrastructure of a region by making a comparison between transaction costs. The method is supposed to be a cross-functional and possibly applied to an analysis of economic entities of a different order (country, region, sector, companies) while evaluating “viscosity” / complexity of the outside and the inside. The paper includes an analysis of various methodological approaches to assess a development level of the transport infrastructure in a region. Within the author's approach and for purposed of the research, an index of transaction capacity or the transactionalness index is proposed, which determines a level of transaction costs calculated against the cost of production and revenue. The approach is piloted using the region-wise consolidated financial data of companies involved in the Russian transport infrastructure for 2005/2013. The proposed alternative way to measure corporate operating efficiency has proved its academic consistency. A specific comparison between the transaction costs using the transactionalness index allows first to identify companies or regions/sectors, where there is excess complexity of economical communication in bargaining. Secondly, the index does not only point out indirectly to a degree of development in the institutional environment, but also the infrastructure (the transport one in the example given). Third, the transactionalness level may say of uncertainty and risks. As an addition to theoretical and methodological aspects of transaction costs, the authors justify an approach to their size estimation, as well as their differentiation dividing them into two groups: those of a natural type and a background type. In a course of their discussion, the authors have concluded that there are such transaction costs in place, which are standard in a manner of speaking. There is a discussion whether it is scientifically reasonable to use an

    Full Text Available This paper deals with the question of the service quality as an important factor of transport companies in the process of improving competitiveness. Due to global competition and great opportunities that are offered to customers, transporting enterprises need to change their current relationship with the end consumer in order to improve the quality of offered services. Traffic enterprises have realized that improvement of the business processes comes with the use of modern ICT solutions and applications that will ensure that protection of the environment has been taken into account and the quality of service improved as well. Domestic traffic enterprises are not yet ready to accept the change of the way of conducting their business, which furtherly affects the quality of services, and they are still not prepared for the arrival of competition in the transport market.

    Full Text Available O Processo de Desenvolvimento de Produtos (PDP pode ser definido como a maneira pela qual uma empresa converte ideias e oportunidades em produtos e serviços. Esse processo exige etapas bem definidas e administração de pessoas e recursos. Nos últimos anos, surgiram modelos referenciais de desenvolvimento que se aperfeiçoaram e incorporaram novas fases no desenvolvimento de produtos, desde a análise do mercado até a descontinuidade do produto. Apesar disso, no que se refere à estruturação do PDP, de um modo geral, as empresas, sobretudo pequenas e médias, não adaptaram facilmente à sua realidade os modelos defendidos nos livros. Claramente, falta uma função de transição entre a prática atual e as propostas teóricas. Baseado na literatura e na prática observada em empresas, este artigo apresenta um método de estruturação das atividades concernentes ao PDP de empresas de bens de manufatura. A proposta contempla a apresentação de um método utilizado para melhoria da integração das atividades. Os métodos utilizados mostram como, na prática, pode ser feita a intervenção em uma empresa de médio porte que deseja organizar seu Processo de Desenvolvimento de Produtos.The product development process (PDP may be defined as the way a company translates ideas and opportunities into products and services. This process demands clearly established phases as well as people and resources management. In the last decade, many reference models for PDP were proposed, presenting improvements and new phases of development, covering aspects ranging from marketing analysis to product discontinuation. Nevertheless, with regard to PDP structuralization, most companies face difficulties in adapting their reality to models presented in the literature. Clearly, a transition function is required to overcome the gap between industrial practices and PDP theoretical models. Based on the literature, as well as on best practices observed in companies

    2017-10-01

    In the present article we study the phenomena of multiple meaning in understanding process-based management method in construction of transport infrastructure facilities. The idea of multiple meaning is in distortions which appear during reception of the management process paradigm in organizational environment of transport sector. The cause of distortion in process management is organizational resistance. The distortions of management processes are discovered at the level of diffusion among spheres of responsibility, collision in forms of functional, project and process interaction between the owner of the process and its participants. The level of distortion is affected by the attitude towards the result of work which means that process understanding of the result is replaced by the functional one in practice of management. This transfiguration is the consequence of regressive defensive mechanisms of the organizational environment. On the base of experience of forming process management in construction of transport infrastructure facilities company of the issues of diagnostics of various forms of organizational resistance and ways of reducing the destructive influence on managing processes are reviewed.

    Full Text Available Leasing is an alternative to financing the acquisition of assets for entities, and it has like modalities the operating procedures and financial leasing. This type of operation has caused several theoretical obstacles, among them the issue of off-balance sheet transactions. To reduce these accounting inconsistencies, the IASB and FASB have been working together to standardize the subject, this result was the publication of Exposure Draft 2010/09 (ED, which promises significant changes in the treatment of such transactions. Given this, this study aimed to analyze the impacts of the proposed changes contained in the ED, as the capitalization of operating leases, in the structure indicators at transportation subsector companies listed on the Bovespa. For this, we used the simulation methodology of the proposals in ED, confirming previous research. After the simulation accomplished, we proceeded with the Student's t test for paired samples, in order to check if the expected changes may cause significant differences in the indicators tested. The evidence points in the year of 2011, an amount of $ 3.8 billion, related to operating leases, not moved by the balance sheet (off-balance sheet of their respective companies. It was also observed that, on average, sample firms have operating leases to pay equivalent to 18.46% equity and 16.14% of debt. Finally, by simulating the proposals in the ED, it was found that the indicators of debt, equity and immobilization of the detention of non-current resources show significant variation from the statistical point of view, due to the capitalization of operating lease balances.

    Full Text Available Empresas têm buscado soluções inovadoras que venham a agregar valor e que possam contribuir com o seu desenvolvimento. Neste cenário, uma empresa do setor de construção civil desenvolveu o serviço Gestão de Frotas, que oferece aos clientes ferramentas novas e atualizadas com um custo mensal fixo, funcionando como uma locação, porém com diferenciais significativos que o distingue dos demais. O objetivo do trabalho foi analisar a criação do serviço Gestão de Frotas e sua respectiva proposta de valor, bem como os impactos de sua implementação nas relações com o cliente e os benefícios gerados para a empresa. Empregou-se como metodologia o estudo de caso único. Os dados foram levantados junto aos principais departamentos da empresa e a análise baseou-se em relatórios internos e entrevistas não estruturadas. O levantamento dos pontos críticos junto ao segmento da construção civil, destacando-se a falta de preocupação com o parque de ferramentas, bem como o desconhecimento dos custos reais envolvidos na aquisição e manutenção do mesmo, levou a empresa a identificar que o pagamento pelo uso e não pela propriedade da ferramenta seria mais eficiente para os clientes. A criação do serviço e sua proposta de valor se basearam na oferta de serviços e não na venda de produtos. O serviço estreitou e fortaleceu o relacionamento com os clientes e proporcionou à empresa ganhos em lucratividade, “market share” e mix de produtos, aumentando a credibilidade da marca no mercado nacional. = Companies have been looking for innovative solutions that will add value and contribute to its development.

    Full Text Available Accurately predicting short-term transport demand for an individual logistics company involved in a competitive market is critical to make short-term operation decisions. This article proposes a combined grey–periodic extension model with remnant correction to forecast the short-term inter-urban transport demand of a logistics company involved in a nationwide competitive market, showing changes in trend and seasonal fluctuations with irregular periods different to the macroeconomic cycle. A basic grey–periodic extension model of an additive pattern, namely, the main combination model, is first constructed to fit the changing trends and the featured seasonal fluctuation periods. In order to improve prediction accuracy and model adaptability, the grey model is repeatedly modelled to fit the remnant tail time series of the main combination model until prediction accuracy is satisfied. The modelling approach is applied to a logistics company engaged in a nationwide less-than-truckload road transportation business in China. The results demonstrate that the proposed modelling approach produces good forecasting results and goodness of fit, also showing good model adaptability to the analysed object in a changing macro environment. This fact makes this modelling approach an option to analyse the short-term transportation demand of an individual logistics company.

    Full Text Available Objective: to study the level of risk for alcohol consumption among drivers from a public transportation company. Methodology: a cross-sectional observational study with a sample of 145 drivers from a transportation company in Medellin, Colombia. A self-survey was used that included socio-demographic data, work organization data, and the audittest to measure the level of risk for alcohol consumption. Results: the socio-demographic and work organization profiles, together with the risk level values are consistent with the findings of previous national and international studies. The audit test results showed that 12.5% of the subjects had a score greater than or equal to 8. This is a global indicator of risky and harmful consumption. Furthermore, the score of 17% of the subjects suggested probable dependence. Conclusions: this study’s findings suggest that further research is required in order to establish the grounds for designing a coordinated proposal integrating the actions of each of the Social Security System’s actors. Such proposal should be based on the policy for decreasing consumption of psychoactive substances in the working population

  11. Transport company safety climate-The impact on truck driver behavior and crash involvement.

    Sullman, Mark J M; Stephens, Amanda N; Pajo, Karl

    2017-04-03

    The present study investigated the relationships between safety climate and driving behavior and crash involvement. A total of 339 company-employed truck drivers completed a questionnaire that measured their perceptions of safety climate, crash record, speed choice, and aberrant driving behaviors (errors, lapses, and violations). Although there was no direct relationship between the drivers' perceptions of safety climate and crash involvement, safety climate was a significant predictor of engagement in risky driving behaviors, which were in turn predictive of crash involvement. This research shows that safety climate may offer an important starting point for interventions aimed at reducing risky driving behavior and thus fewer vehicle collisions.

    Full Text Available The direction and effectiveness of the using mineral resources, as well as the development trend of the mineral markets, especially energy markets – is one of the central topics of the development of relevant industries. The article discusses the consumption of mineral energy resources in transport with the differentiation by the countries of the world. It proposed to improve the methods of forecasting of energy consumption in the transport sector in the medium and long term. Relevance of the work associated with the leading role of the transport sector in the formation of oil demand in the world. In most developed and developing countries vehicle transport accounts for 60-70% of the total domestic oil consumption. Forecasting of energy demand is particular important to ensure energy security of the countries in the transport sector in the medium and long term. Predicting energy consumption by road vehicles includes two main areas: the forecast of specific energy consumption vehicle and the forecast of the number of cars. The authors examined historical data of specific energy consumption of road vehicle with the differentiation by the countries of Europe and Russia. The analysis revealed a steady decline in energy intensity in most advanced countries. However, this process is different in intensity decrease specific energy consumption and the time of occurrence of the trend. An analysis of the specific energy consumption in the past 25 years has shown that the dynamics of the index most accurately described by an exponential function: the initial stage of reduction of energy consumption is more intensive than in subsequent periods. As a result, the general pattern was derived convergence of energy consumption and the parameters depending on the speed of lowering the energy intensity of its initial value. On basis of trend models and identified reducing energy consumption depending on the speed of its entry-level may carry out the forecast of

    1996-07-15

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is committed to the safe, efficient, and cost-effective transportation of all materials that support its various programs and activities. DOE strives to ensure that hazardous materials (particularly radioactive),hazardous substances, and hazardous mixed waste are handled and transported in compliance with all applicable federal, state,tribal, and local rules and regulations. This plan outlines the activities and responsibilities of DOE and other agencies that will be followed to conclude a significant movement of radioactive cesium (Cs) chloride capsules in a safe and uneventful manner. DOE-Headquarters (DOE-HQ) has directed that Cs capsules manufactured at the Waste Encapsulation and Storage Facility (WESF) be returned to WESF, located at DOE`s Hanford Site in southeast Washington State. Currently, there are 25 Cs capsules at the Applied Radiant Energy Corporation (ARECO)facility utilized for the polymerization of wood products in Lynchburg, Virginia, that requires removal as part of the overall Cs capsule return effort. This plan has been prepared in cooperation with member states of the Western Governors` Association (WGA) and the Southern States Energy Board (SSEB);the Council of State Governments Midwestern Office; and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservations, through whose jurisdictions these shipments will pass, and is an example of DOE-HQ`s commitment to early coordination and substantive involvement in its decision-making processes. This transportation plan identifies responsibilities, requirements,and procedures to ensure the success of the capsule return program. The plan summarizes transportation activities,organizational responsibilities, emergency preparedness guidelines, and other methods for achieving safe transport.

  16. Three Essays on National Oil Company Efficiency, Energy Demand and Transportation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Eller, Stacy L.

    This dissertation is composed of three separate essays in the field of energy economics. In the first paper, both data envelopment analysis and stochastic production frontier estimation are employed to provide empirical evidence on the revenue efficiency of national oil companies (NOCs) and private international oil companies (IOCs). Using a panel of 80 oil producing firms, the analysis suggests that NOCs are generally less efficient at generating revenue from a given resource base than IOCs, with some exceptions. Due to differing firm objectives, however, structural and institutional features may help explain much of the inefficiency. The second paper analyzes the relationship between economic development and the demand for energy. Energy consumption is modeled using panel data from 1990 to 2004 for 50 countries spanning all levels of development. We find the relationship between energy consumption and economic development corresponds to the structure of aggregate output and the nature of derived demand for electricity and direct-use fuels in each sector. Notably, the evidence of non-constant income elasticity of demand is much greater for electricity demand than for direct-use fuel consumption. In addition, we show that during periods of rapid economic development, one in which the short-term growth rate exceeds the long-run average, an increase in aggregate output is met by less energy-efficient capital. This is a result of capital being fixed in the short-term. As additional, more efficient capital stock is added to the production process, the short-term increase in energy intensity will diminish. In the third essay, we develop a system of equations to estimate a model of motor vehicle fuel consumption, vehicle miles traveled and implied fuel efficiency for the 67 counties of the State of Florida from 2001 to 2008. This procedure allows us to decompose the factors of fuel demand into elasticities of vehicle driving demand and fuel efficiency. Particular

    Full Text Available The term of logistic customer service is defined as the abilities or skills to meet the customer’s requirements and expectations, chiefly in terms of the time and place of deliveries, while using all available forms of logistic activity, including transport, storage, and the management of inventories, information and packages. As each of the logistic activities has an effect on the customer receiving right product or service, in its proper condition, in the correct time and space, and at reasonable costs, so seeking the proper service comes down to managing logistic activities in such a manner, as to achieve the essential level of customer satisfaction at the lowest possible costs.

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents the results of research in an interorganizational network of urban public transportation on the electronic ticketing system developed by the Association that links public transportation companies in the metropolitan Porto Alegre. The methodology includes a qualitative analysis of poorly known and - defined variables characterized by intangibles, which inhibit the formulation of hypotheses, as well as considering the complex aspects that make up the organizational setting. The data were obtained from secondary data registered in documents and primary data from interviews with managers of the associated firms, and were systematically analyzed by content. The interviewees for this study were the executive manager of the Transportation Association, the information technology coordinator of the management consortium, the project coordinator and the director of transportation for the managing company. The results of the interviews were classified into categories, creating interlinking information on each theme proposed in the initial categories. The results suggest that the electronic ticketing system constitutes an innovation produced from operational improvements in control and structural processes in the associated companies. The stimuli for innovation and the formation of the association include cost and risk sharing, economies of scale through working in a network, public pressure for improvement without increase of costs, loss of income caused by alternative means of transportation and the requirement for high levels of finance, technology and staff, which would be unviable in individual companies.

  19. Solution approach for a large scale personnel transport system for a large company in Latin America

    2017-10-01

    Full Text Available Purpose: The present paper focuses on the modelling and solution of a large-scale personnel transportation system in Mexico where many routes and vehicles are currently used to service 525 points. The routing system proposed can be applied to many cities in the Latin-American region. Design/methodology/approach: This system was modelled as a VRP model considering the use of real-world transit times, and the fact that routes start at the farthest point from the destination center. Experiments were performed on different sized sets of service points. As the size of the instances was increased, the performance of the heuristic method was assessed in comparison with the results of an exact algorithm, the results remaining very close between both.  When the size of the instance was full-scale and the exact algorithm took too much time to solve the problem, then the heuristic algorithm provided a feasible solution. Supported by the validation with smaller scale instances, where the difference between both solutions was close to a 6%, the full –scale solution obtained with the heuristic algorithm was considered to be within that same range. Findings: The proposed modelling and solving method provided a solution that would produce significant savings in the daily operation of the routes. Originality/value: The urban distribution of the cities in Latin America is unique to other regions in the world. The general layout of the large cities in this region includes a small town center, usually antique, and a somewhat disordered outer region. The lack of a vehicle-centered urban planning poses distinct challenges for vehicle routing problems in the region. The use of a heuristic VRP combined with the results of an exact VRP, allowed the obtention of an improved routing plan specific to the requirements of the region.

    The present paper focuses on the modelling and solution of a large-scale personnel transportation system in Mexico where many routes and vehicles are currently used to service 525 points. The routing system proposed can be applied to many cities in the Latin-American region. Design/methodology/approach: This system was modelled as a VRP model considering the use of real-world transit times, and the fact that routes start at the farthest point from the destination center. Experiments were performed on different sized sets of service points. As the size of the instances was increased, the performance of the heuristic method was assessed in comparison with the results of an exact algorithm, the results remaining very close between both. When the size of the instance was full-scale and the exact algorithm took too much time to solve the problem, then the heuristic algorithm provided a feasible solution. Supported by the validation with smaller scale instances, where the difference between both solutions was close to a 6%, the full –scale solution obtained with the heuristic algorithm was considered to be within that same range. Findings: The proposed modelling and solving method provided a solution that would produce significant savings in the daily operation of the routes. Originality/value: The urban distribution of the cities in Latin America is unique to other regions in the world. The general layout of the large cities in this region includes a small town center, usually antique, and a somewhat disordered outer region. The lack of a vehicle-centered urban planning poses distinct challenges for vehicle routing problems in the region. The use of a heuristic VRP combined with the results of an exact VRP, allowed the obtention of an improved routing plan specific to the requirements of the region.

    Full Text Available Un’operetta morale di Leopardi, la Proposta di premi fatta dall’Accademia dei Sillografi, adotta il linguaggio tecnico di un bando di concorso per proporre tre premi agli inventori di tre macchine umane perfette: l’amicizia, la magnanimità, la fedeltà coniugale sono gli obiettivi delle invenzioni scientifiche. Il tono serio cela in realtà la  polemica contro l’antropocentrismo e soprattutto contro l’ottimismo del suo tempo.  One of Leopardi’s Operette morali, Proposta di premi fatta dall’Accademia dei Sillografi, adopts the gergon of a competition notice to propose three prizes to the inventors of three perfect human machines: friendship, magnanimity, conjugal fidelity are the aims of scientific inventions.

  4. The Selection of Wagons for the Internal Transport of a Logistics Company: A Novel Approach Based on Rough BWM and Rough SAW Methods

    2017-11-01

    Full Text Available The rationalization of logistics activities and processes is very important in the business and efficiency of every company. In this respect, transportation as a subsystem of logistics, whether internal or external, is potentially a huge area for achieving significant savings. In this paper, the emphasis is placed upon the internal transport logistics of a paper manufacturing company. It is necessary to rationalize the movement of vehicles in the company’s internal transport, that is, for the majority of the transport to be transferred to rail transport, because the company already has an industrial track installed in its premises. To do this, it is necessary to purchase at least two used wagons. The problem is formulated as a multi-criteria decision model with eight criteria and eight alternatives. The paper presents a new approach based on a combination of the Simple Additive Weighting (SAW method and rough numbers, which is used for ranking the potential solutions and selecting the most suitable one. The rough Best–Worst Method (BWM was used to determine the weight values of the criteria. The results obtained using a combination of these two methods in their rough form were verified by means of a sensitivity analysis consisting of a change in the weight criteria and comparison with the following methods in their conventional and rough forms: the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP, Technique for Ordering Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS and MultiAttributive Border Approximation area Comparison (MABAC. The results show very high stability of the model and ranks that are the same or similar in different scenarios.

  5. The principal-agent problem and transport energy use: Case study of company lease cars in the Netherlands

    2008-01-01

    Barriers exist for improvement of energy efficiency, of which the principal-agent problem is considered an important one. The principal-agent problem is a potential barrier for energy policies based on economic instruments, as the decision maker may be partially insulated from the price signal given by such policies. We estimate the size and the impact of the principal-agent problem for cars provided by companies as a benefit to employees in the Netherlands. Of all passenger cars in the Netherlands, 11% is classified as company cars, which consume 21% of the total energy consumption by passenger cars. As company cars are newer, operate more diesel engines, but are also larger, the fuel efficiency is slightly worse than that of private cars. Company cars seem to drive longer distances for commuting than the national average of private cars. Together, this might result in a net 1-7% increase of all fuel use of passenger cars in the Netherlands. This indicates that there is potential to reduce energy consumption of company cars and a need for policies aimed at improving energy efficiency of company cars

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1983-01-01

    About 9:50 p.m., P.s.t., on Thursday, January 7, 1982, Southern Pacific Transportation Company freight train No. 01-BSMFF-05, derailed 14 cars at Thermal, California, while traveling about 57 miles per hour on the tangent single main track. Four transients riding on the train were seriously injured, a fifth transient died as a result of injuries. No crewmembers were injured as a result of the accident. The presence of radioactive material in the derailed Trailer-On-Flat-Car train was discovered about 1 hour after the accident occurred, resulting in the handling of the emergency response effort as a serious radiological emergency. Accurate information regarding the precise nature of the radioactive material shipment was not available at the accident site until about 5 hours after the derailment occurred; at that time radiological emergency procedures were terminated. The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of this accident was the inadequate company evaluation of defect data which should have indicated that the rail in the vicinity of the derailment was approaching service life limit for main track use and the consequent failure of the company to initiate an accelerated inspection program to detect incipient fatigue fractures of the rail

As reflexões desenvolvidas fundam-se no pressuposto básico de que o envelhecimento é um processo biopsicossocial. A exclusão social pode ser uma das características deste processo, que também pode propiciar a participação social e comunitária, como uma estratégia de enfrentamento da situação de desigualdade que, muitas vezes, acomete o segmento idoso. A cidadania é concebida nos projetos em foco como o exercício de um conjunto de direitos e deveres que devem ser garantidos por todos os indivíduos. As pesquisas, de abordagem qualitativa, incluíram a realização de entrevistas com idosas da Comunidade Nova Pantanal e com aposentados e pensionistas do IPREM. A coleta de dados se pautou, também, na utilização de técnicas de observação e informativos mensais do Instituto de Previdência Social da P.M.S.P. As análises dos depoimentos e dados observados permitem destacar como resultados a superação do medo de aprender novas habilidades, a conquista da sociabilidade, a prática da solidariedade e da possibilidade de aquisição de uma nova profissão por pessoas idosas. A educação e a cidadania são processos importantes para reintegração e inclusão de envelhescentes e idosos no convívio social, propiciando uma condição de vida saudável.

    As the 2014/94/EU directive defines alternative fuels (electric power, natural gas under its gaseous and liquefied form, biofuels, liquefied petrol gas or LPG, hydrogen, synthetic fuels, and paraffinic fuels), and states the obligation for member states to develop distribution infrastructures for these fuels, this report addresses fuels which cannot be mixed with diesel fuel and thus require the modification of transport equipment and the development of a new distribution infrastructure, technically different from that for oil-derived fuels. It describes technical and economic characteristics of French freight transport companies, public policies aimed at an energy transition of these companies, and alternate fuels defined by the European directive. Then, it proposes an overview of the status of perspectives of development of alternative motorizations for four types of equipment used in freight transport: freight transport ships, industrial vehicles, light commercial vehicles, and inland vessels

    The comparison with Abelard aims to clarify the sense in which the new language is significant. If we intend the meaning of the musical element as sermo and the musical discourse as dictum, we understand more clearly that the awareness of the conventionality of language – which lays the foundations for the rupture with the tonal system and for a new language – with the need to ensure a link with reality – in music with the historic experience – allow the idea of the composer to materialize in the musical work and become proposta di verità for the contemporary public.

  12. CSR in TSL companies

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available TSL companies are characterized by high dynamics of an increase of incomes, and hence increased shipping. Owing to a rational policy in the area of the consolidation of production and distribution, they may boast of a better use of the means of transport. The purpose of this article is to present the activities in the area of the eco-friendly CSR aspect in the activities of TSL companies taking into consideration particularly logistic operators. The research methods used in the study include an analysis of secondary data, observations and comparative analyses. Road transport in the shipping structure comes first and it constitutes 84% of freights. In the year 2009, in Poland greenhouse gas emissions from road transport amounted to 42.5 million tons (4.84% of the EU member states and CO emissions were 41.9 million tons (analogically, 4.83% of environment pollutions in the European Union. This causes an emission of fumes into the atmosphere. The policy of sustainable development pursued by logistic operators under corporate social responsibility is a response to the abovementioned data. They take decisions concerning social and environmental aspects. The activities of TSL companies under CSR need to provide an answer to customer expectations and needs, and they have to cause an increase of competitiveness on the market. The selected four largest logistic operators conduct the following eco-friendly activities on the highest level: fume emission reports and the control of these emissions, transport of hazardous goods (ADR, voluntary services in the scope of environmental protection and cooperation with eco-friendly organizations. There are those activities which call for improvement: a limitation of the emission of fumes, waste management and sewage treatment policy.

  19. Imagens que pensam, que sonham, que sentem. Uma proposta ousada?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Adriana Baggio

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available As imagens podem pensar, de maneira independente, como se fossem sujeitos? Para apresentar e discutir essa ideia, Etienne Samain reuniu textos próprios e de mais nove autores. Inspirados pelos conceitos de Aby Warburg, Gregory Bateson e Didi-Huberman, os artigos tratam de uma teoria da imagem e sua operação metodológica e analítica, especialmente em relação à fotografia. Os textos estão organizados em três partes e se complementam, dialogam e até mesmo se opõem, formando um panorama rico e consistente de outra proposta epistemológica da comunicação.

  1. O direito dos povos: uma proposta de sociedade bem ordenada

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jéssica de Farias Mesquita

    2017-02-01

    Full Text Available O presente texto tem como objetivo examinar a visão de John Rawls acerca das sociedades bem ordenadas na obra O Direito dos Povos, bem como o significado destas para o desenvolvimento da proposta de sociedade democrática liberal. Rawls, na primeira parte da obra, que trata sobre a teoria ideal, refere-se à ideia geral de contrato social nas Sociedades dos Povos democráticos liberais. O autor prossegue com a mesma ideia, na segunda parte da obra quando trata da teoria não-ideal, referindo-se aos povos decentes. Uma sociedade dos povos decentes, segundo Rawls, é uma sociedade cujas características são aceitáveis como membro de uma Sociedade dos Povos razoável, embora não seja uma sociedade democrática liberal. Ambas as sociedades, seja ela democrática liberal ou decente, fazem parte de uma sociedade bem ordenada por obedecerem aos critérios estabelecidos pela Sociedade dos Povos. Para a garantia de uma sociedade bem ordenada, Rawls expõe uma série de condições para que esse tipo de sociedade seja possível, uma dessas condições é o modo como essas sociedades se encontram reguladas.

  3. Etica ed evoluzionismo: la proposta di Marc Hauser

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Irene Pilloni

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available Le recenti scoperte nell’ambito della psicologia evoluzionistica potrebbero offrire una risposta al dibattito sull’origine evoluzionistica della facoltà morale dell’Homo sapiens. In passato, il tentativo di spiegare il comportamento morale a partire dalla teoria dell’evoluzione è stato intrapreso dal padre fondatore dell’evoluzionismo Charles Darwin, successivamente da T.H. Huxley e da H. Spencer e infine dal sociobiologo E. Wilson a metà degli anni ‘70 del Novecento. Oggi questa impresa è stata ereditata dallo psicologo evoluzionista Marc Hauser, le cui indagini prendono avvio da un’analogia tra facoltà morale e facoltà linguistica. Questa analogia gli consente di affermare che la pluralità di codici morali adottati dagli uomini nelle differenti culture dipende da un numero limitato di principi morali, nello stesso modo in cui la varietà di lingue con cui gli uomini si esprimono, dipende da un numero limitato di principi linguistici universali. Dunque, sembrerebbe che l’evoluzione biologica abbia plasmato dei principi morali universali e uniformi che si presentano costanti in tutti gli uomini a prescindere dalla loro appartenenza culturale. Come vadano intesi i principi morali universali e quale rapporto intercorre tra di essi e i vari codici morali sarà l’argomento di questo saggio, il quale tenterà di analizzare la proposta di Marc Hauser all’interno della cornice dei rapporti tra etica ed evoluzionismo.

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available É notável o compromisso das empresas com posturas socialmente corretas, ambientalmente sustentáveis e economicamente viáveis em suas práticas de gestão. É neste sentido que a responsabilidade socioambiental torna-se uma variável importante na estratégia competitiva das empresas para que estas procurem atingir e demonstrar para a sociedade um desempenho ambiental correto, controlando os impactos no meio ambiente. Assim, no que tange às políticas públicas dos transportes, as empresas privadas, que detêm a concessão dos serviços dos transportes urbanos, precisam adotar medidas que vão além do mero cumprimento legal exigido pelos órgãos reguladores e fiscalizadores, adotando práticas de responsabilidade social e ambiental que minimizem os impactos negativos e melhorem a qualidade dos serviços de transportes prestados. É neste sentido que se torna relevante o estudo das práticas de responsabilidade socioambientais da empresa de transporte em estudo. A crescente valorização das questões ambientais deve estar adequada à legislação, às demandas sociais e alinhada à estratégia da organização. Neste sentido, a presente pesquisa estuda a gestão socioambiental adotada em uma empresa de transporte coletivo urbana na cidade de Santa Maria, RS; especificamente pretende verificar as práticas de gestão em relação às questões ambientais e sociais, bem como o seu alinhamento com a estratégia empresarial. Sendo assim, trata-se de uma pesquisa exploratória, que se utiliza do estudo de caso por tratar-se de um conhecimento profundo e exaustivo de um único objeto. Assim, o desenvolvimento desse estudo busca a definição de um conjunto de dados que deverão auxiliar o processo de descrição de fases ou totalidade do processo social da empresa MEDIANEIRA TRANSPORTES LTDA. As conclusões limitam-se ao contexto unicamente da empresa, indicando que as estratégias de sustentabilidade estão alinhadas à filosofia de neg

    Full Text Available Companies, especially nowadays, are characterized through great mobility, fast circulation of capital, occurring in their chase for profit. In this context, companies look for alliances, economical and political assistance. These objectives can materialize through merging of companies. The merger can be internal (between Romanian companies or transboundary, which includes foreign companies. In order to correctly reflect these events, the merger operations must be regulated and must respect national and international regulations. One important request concerning the merger operations is that the accounting values of the assets, debts and ownership equity must be brought to the present financial value.

    2007-08-01

    Full Text Available Little is known about companies whose core business is selling telecommunications products that lever open source projects. Open source telecommunications (OST companies operate in markets that are very different from typical software product markets. The telecommunications market is regulated, vertically integrated, and proprietary designs and special chips are widely used. For a telecommunications product to be useful, it must interact with both access network products and core network products. Due to specifications in Service Agreements Levels, penalties for failures of telecommunications products are very high. This article shares information that is not widely known, including a list of OST companies and the open source projects on which they depend, the size and diversity of venture capital investment in OST companies, the nature of the commercial product-open source software and company-project relationships, ways in which OST companies make money, benefits and risks of OST companies, and competition between OST companies. Analysis of this information provides insights into the ways in which companies can build business models around open source software. These findings will be of interest to entrepreneurs, top management teams of incumbent companies that sell telecommunications products, and those who care about Ontario's ability to compete globally.

    Full Text Available It is possible to understand many crucial processes within organizations such as change planning and management, training, decision making and leadership thanks to organisational neuroscience. For example, poorly managed change can result in alarm messages within our brains. Managers must be aware of how their words, emotions and conduct have a significant impact on team mood and results. Another fast-growing area of research is neuromarketing, thanks to company investments. This article presents a success story: a company that, faced with the need to change its selling proposition, uses neurometric techniques to analyse possible resistance of the sales force and then acted accordingly. Even training can significantly improve company efficiency thanks to neuroscience. This article also discusses some experiments carried out by the Training Department of a large public transport company.

    Environmental communication is becoming a sine qua non for companies which are more and more pressed by the need to reinforce communication with interested parties: environmental groups, local communities, local and national authorities, employees, share-holders, banks, insurance companies, customers and consumers. Reliable environmental information, just like economical and property data, is now required during both company take-over and financing, and in some cases it can affect insurance premiums. In fact, environmental guarantees are more and more often required because breaching environmental regulations can entail legal sanctions going as far as suspension of business. There now also Green investment funds that engage their resources only against specific environmental guarantees on the part of the companies that, before being selected for the investment, are submitted to rather accurate questionnaires by the investment manager [it

    In anticipation of continuing declines in upstream activity levels over the next 15 years, the virtual oil company model articulates a vision of fewer, leaner, but financially stronger firms that concentrate only on their core competencies and outsource the rest through well-structured partnering arrangements. Freed from the ''clutter,'' these leading companies will be in better position to focus on those opportunities that offer the potential for renewed reserve and revenue growth

    The author relates his experience in the development of a spinal implant development company (K2M) that is significantly advised by physicians. To provide information about the development of a spinal implant company (K2M) advised by a group of professional spinal surgeons. To relate the federal laws (STARK and anti-kickback) as they pertain to surgeon-influenced companies. To discuss the role of a scientific advisory board. A self-developed company was developed together with significant, but minority physician financial input and majority scientific advice. A privately owned spinal implant development corporation (K2M) was developed 3 years ago. Physician financial participation was less than 20% (Stark laws state no more than 40%). Users of product are greater than 60% non-investor physicians. The development of a large scientific advisory board has been very influential in product development. A privately owned spinal implant company (K2M) has been developed strictly within Federal laws. Its board of scientific advisors that receives recompense commissurate only with effort significantly impacts the company policy.

    The trends and factors currently emerging are likely to have significant influence on the way the upstream oil and gas industry evolves in the coming decade. This paper discusses how these trends might influence events in the 1990s, particularly how they might influence relationships between host countries and companies in the oil industry. State owned companies will dominate the industry in resource terms. These statcos fall into three groups: a small group of technically able, financially sound, well-managed companies; a group of consumer statcos that have limited domestic production but significant domestic demand; a large group that are finding it difficult to maintain their production facilities in good standing to maximize recovery from their resources. This paper describes the future private sector as consisting of the Surviving Sisters and smaller, private companies very active in the upstream. How will these various players behave in the years to come? Conventional activity in the upstream will continue as companies seek to optimize their upstream portfolios

    This paper investigates the legal and commercial consequences of companies being considered as both an entity and a person in law – hence the notion of ‘cyborg’ in its title. It concentrates upon legal personhood and relates this particular feature to the issue of corporate citizenship. In turn...... corporate citizenship provides a link to considering the political role of companies, since in claiming citizenship they are implicitly at least claiming a particular set of political rights consequent upon that status, and announcing a particular politically constrained context associated...... with their operational characteristics. But what would be involved in granting companies full citizenship rights in the image of natural person citizenship?

  5. Chinese Companies in Switzerland

    2014-10-01

    Full Text Available In recent years, some of China’s leading firms have made headlines with their European expansion, by either opening new facilities or by acquiring or merging with significant enterprises in Europe. The goal of this paper is to contribute to the existing literature by examining Chinese enterprises expanding into Switzerland. The study also allows some conclusions for Chinese companies entering Central and Eastern Europe. We analyze via interviews the motivations of Chinese companies to expand into Switzerland as well as their behavior and the impediments in their internationalization process. Our findings show that Chinese companies fail to take advantage of certain benefits of western economies (such as open information and stable rule of law. To move forward efficiently, they should develop competence in dealing systematically with readily available market information, building professional networks that recognize a separation between business life and personal life, and managing their Chinese and foreign employees in the foreign cultural environment.

  6. RESTRUCTURING COMPANIES UNDER CRISIS

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Nobody is planning to fail, but many companies are failing because of lack of planning. Real business experience showed during the years that crisis can be prevented, avoided or limited. If detected in time, the risks associated with the crisis can be mitigated and the effects can be diminished, with the condition that the actions required are done fast, in a sharp and accurate manner. When it comes, a crisis brings an intense level of pressure and under these conditions there is no time or room for mistakes. Delays, losing focus and lack of planning will bring a company one step away from failure. The right way to deal with crisis, if required measures are not done in time, is to minimize the losses and reposition in the best way possible. Analysing the success stories of some of the biggest and strongest companies in the world, led to an important conclusion: the majority of these companies were in the situation to face huge crises which threatened their ability to survive in certain moments, on their way to success. With the right planning and by setting a proper organisational structure, the negative aspects of the crisis can be turned into benefits and opportunities for the company. The most critical challenge for management is to assess the level of exposure to risk of the company and identify the key points to focus on in order to overcome the crisis and create value. In order to set up a strong plan in dealing with crisis, a business organisation needs reliable, efficient and effective tools and this is what this article is all about.

    Full Text Available ResumoAnalisamos como o tema esporte foi abordado nas propostas curriculares para educação física no Estado de Pernambuco de 1989 a 2013, por via de uma pesquisa documental que teve como fontes de dados documentos oficiais da Secretaria de Educação e usou a análise de conteúdo categorial por temática. Identificamos a perenidade dos fundamentos do objeto de estudo da cultura corporal e do tema esporte em todas as propostas analisadas. Compreendemos que houve um esforço dos professores para que o esporte não fosse uma mera reprodução do esporte de alto rendimento. Entretanto, identificamos que esse nem sempre foi acompanhado por uma coerência entre a intencionalidade pedagógica para com o tema, sua organização de conteúdos e a metodologia proposta.

    Full Text Available Este artigo traz resultados de uma pesquisa que vem sendo realizada sobre as especificidades da formação do educador de jovens e adultos em que buscamos selecionar propostas que nos auxiliassem a identificar suas singularidades. De acordo com o tempo de existência, histórico, tradição, impacto na área e a relevância para a comunidade envolvida, elegemos as quatro propostas a serem visitadas: o Projeto Escola Zé Peão, o Projeto Paranoá, o PROEF e o CMET Paulo Freire. Ao analisarmos como acontece a EJA e o que ressaltou quanto às suas especificidades, nas propostas pesquisadas, oito pontos se destacaram: a origem de cada um; a diversidade dos sujeitos; a preocupação com o espaço físico; as formas de conceber as propostas curriculares; a disponibilidade de recursos didáticos; as políticas complementares de alimentação e transporte; a formulação de uma política pública para a EJA; e as iniciativas de formação inicial e continuada.This article brings out the results of a research that has been realized about the specificities of the Young and Adults educators´ formation, in which we sought to select proposals to help us indentifying the singularities of those educators. We elected the four proposals to be visited according to their time of existence, their historic, their tradition, their impact on the area and their relevance for the community involved. They are: the Project "Escola Zé Peão", the Project "Paranoá", the "PROEF" and the "CMET Paulo Freire". By analyzing how EJA takes place in each proposal studied and what came out about their specificity, we can stress eight points: the origin of each project, the diversity of the subjects, the caution with the physical space, the way of conceiving the circular proposals; the availability of didactical resources; the complementary politics of food and transportation; the public policy formulation for EJA and the initiatives of initial and continued formation.

We are repurposing old payphones for civic engagement and storytelling on local streets. The project was born in Leimert Park, a neighborhood in South Los Angeles famous for its African American culture. Across the country, public phonebooths are dying. Is this a hidden opportunity to reclaim physical space and shift the narrative of the neighborhood? We go beyond booths as wifi hotspots.

    The decay of demand, the bad financial results of the first half of 2009 and the hypothetical depletion of reserves must not hide a reality: oil companies are passing through the economic crisis without much trouble. Even if profits have marked time in volume (-57% for BP, -65% for Shell..), the net margins have not significantly suffered and the available cash remains comfortable (14 billion euros for Total as an example). The perspectives offered by the new offshore sites (like Santos in Brazil) added to the fabulous promises of the Iraqi market where 'majors' can now make their come-back will be the key of success of oil companies. The overall exploration-production investments should start up again by the beginning of 2011. For the only offshore drilling domain, they should rise up by 32% during the 2009-2013 period which represents a sum of 367 billion dollars. (J.S.)

  10. Company Vision and Organizational Learning

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Vojko Toman

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available The effectiveness of a company is largely dependent on the company itself; it depends above all on its corporate governance, management, and implementation, as well as on decision-making processes and coordination. Many authors believe that organizational learning and knowledge are the most relevant aspects of company effectiveness. If a company wants to be effective it needs to create and realize its vision; to do this, it needs creativity, imagination, and knowledge, which can be obtained or enhanced through learning. This paper defines vision, learning, creativity and management and, above all, their relationships. The author argues that company vision influences the learning and knowledge of employees in the company through the vision’s content, through the vision-creating process, and through the vision enforcement process. Conversely, the influence of learning on company vision is explained. The paper is aimed at the use in the practice of companies and helps them to increase their effectiveness.

No texto, construído a partir de um trabalho exploratório, os autores descrevem a analisam a constituição histórico-política da Proposta Curricular em sua primeira fase de discussão e sistematização, no final da década de 80 e início dos anos 90. Para dar conta dessa tarefa teórica, o trabalho identifica aspectos da relação entre o contexto social e político brasileiro e o movimento educacional catarinense que deu origem à formulação da Proposta Curricular e destaca as implicações do pensamento curricular que, nos anos 80/90 hegemonizava os debates do campo no Brasil, na opção pela concepção assumida nos textos que a compõem. No artigo, apresentam-se as primeiras conclusões dessa etapa de pesquisa, dentre as quais se destacam: a que a motivação geradora do trabalho de formulação da Proposta Curricular teve forte relação com a realidade social e política do Brasil no final dos anos 80; b que a formulação da Proposta não se inscrevia como pauta dos movimentos sindicais da época – ela se deu por iniciativa da própria Secretaria de Estado da Educação; c que, embora os autores da Proposta tenham optado por uma concepção teórica bem definida, não houve aprofundamento sobre o campo da teoria curricular. Os argumentos apresentados no texto sustentam-se na literatura afim, em documentos oficiais e nos próprios cadernos que compõem a Proposta.

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo mostrar a possibilidade de uma práxis em Psicologia, anteriormente denominada orientação vocacional, acontecer a partir da perspectiva fenomenológico-existencial, que recebe a denominação análise da escolha profissional. Duas temáticas presentes na análise da escolha profissional são análise e escolha, em substituição aos termos orientação e vocação da proposta de orientação vocacional. Essa prática aponta o caráter de determinação da escolha pela vocação e uma atuação que orienta a conhecer a verdade acerca do caminho a seguir. Os termos análise e escolha são relevantes para marcar o que está em questão em uma análise da escolha, que tem como fundamentos a fenomenologia, a hermenêutica e a analítica da existência. A prática da análise da escolha profissional será relatada em meio a fragmentos de relatos clínicos. Por fim, apresentaremos alguns trechos do poeta Rilke em Cartas a um Jovem Poeta, para assim poder mostrar elementos de uma análise que muito se aproxima daquela por nós proposta.

    The high cost of oil production in Canada has meant that Canadian oil and gas producers, especially juniors, are looking overseas for new opportunities. They do so, free of the relentless competition common in Alberta, hefty land costs, government regulations, farmers and environmentalists. For example, Trans-Dominion Energy has ongoing exploration in Senegal, Africa, Epic Energy is running tests on drill cores from the Aktash field in Ukraine, and Eagle Energy has completed a horizontal well in the Belli oil field in Tunisia. Seven Seas Petroleum purchased 35% in the Dindal and Rio Seco Association contracts in Columbia, while Cordex Petroleum acquired a 50% interest in the Laguna Los Capones field in Argentina. Another company, Canadian Occidental Petroleum Ltd. (CanOxy), has been drilling in Yemen since 1990 with complete success. Production tops 185,000 barrels per day, of which CanOxy holds a 52% interest. The company has since focused on prospects in the Ejulebe field offshore Nigeria, the Turan basin in Kazakhstan, offshore Vietnam in the Nam Con Son basin, offshore Thailand and onshore Columbia.

    The motivations for a small company to go international were reviewed, as well as the efforts required to identify markets compatible with what one has to offer. The variety of approaches taken to capitalize on the perceived opportunities were summarized. Motives for going international include minimization of risk by market diversification, revenue growth, and improved profitability where there is a run-up in demand. Getting started usually includes the following six steps: (1) selecting a target market, (2) interpreting market needs, (3) understanding local decision making, (4) deciding on a proposal, (5) seeking project financing, and (6) overcoming hurdles. Setting up shop also implies seeking market commitment, finding suitable long-term accommodation, finding suitable local workers, and exploring local sourcing for materials and equipment. Having a competitive advantage is essential to penetrating international markets. A cost advantage is the most valuable. Patience, persistence and perseverance were also identified as essential virtues

  17. Modeling renewable energy company risk

    2012-01-01

    The renewable energy sector is one of the fastest growing components of the energy industry and along with this increased demand for renewable energy there has been an increase in investing and financing activities. The tradeoff between risk and return in the renewable energy sector is, however, precarious. Renewable energy companies are often among the riskiest types of companies to invest in and for this reason it is necessary to have a good understanding of the risk factors. This paper uses a variable beta model to investigate the determinants of renewable energy company risk. The empirical results show that company sales growth has a negative impact on company risk while oil price increases have a positive impact on company risk. When oil price returns are positive and moderate, increases in sales growth can offset the impact of oil price returns and this leads to lower systematic risk.

    At the present time the whole world realizes the serious need for energy for the preservation of perpetually sustainable development. A distinctive place in the life of modern society belongs to electric energy,its safe production and reliable delivery according high standards of quality. When our company was established 30 years ago, we assumed research and development challenges directly related to the safe, reliable and economical production of electric energy from nuclear power plants, as well as the elimination of potential negative influences on the environment and employees. During our existence, we have gradually expanded our activities and specializations. Our first job was ti train plant personnel. We trained specialists to meet the needs not only of (what was then) Czechoslovakia, but also of Germany and Hungary. Gradually, we also met the problems of processing and storing radioactive waste, maintaining the service-life of our equipment and deactivating and disposing of contaminated devices at the end their operating lives. Industry requirements and concerns led use to broaden our services in energy production to include renewable sources of energy. Our youngest division of activity deals with the distribution of hydro-electrical energy via the electric grid. By continually updating the specialized skills of our employees and by investing in the latest equipment, our challenges and operational issues in the energy sector. Responding to developmental trends and the requirements of our consumers, we have established a system of quality management, which complies with the ISO 9001 and 14001 standards certified by the LRQA Corporation of Great Britain. Throughout the years, our company has been consistently proving to the operators of power facilities, both in Slovakia and abroad, our viability and high, innovative potential, in recognition of this, in 2005, when we participated in the sixth EU Framework Programme in R and D, the Slovak Ministry of

  7. Company Value Anatomy

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Luiz Nelson Guedes de Carvalho

    2008-10-01

    Full Text Available The seminal propositions by Modigliani and Miller started a new study area in modern finance theory. Over time, their basic assumptions were relaxed, to the extent that, nowadays, situations in which they can be fully applied, with consistent and satisfactory results, are rare. On the other hand, as this simple set of propositions became known worldwide and was easily applicable, it was adopted as a rule of thumb for general enterprise valuation. However, in situations without methodological bias, the resulting enterprise values obtained by traditional methodologies are abstruse and do not allow for the analysis and management of the individual values that make up the firm and own capital values. In order to avoid this kind of abstruseness in company valuation, this study theoretically deducts an alternative valuation methodology, which permits the identification of assets’ value independently of their financing; moreover, we identify the gain on debt value that the debt provides to the shareholders, the debt tax shield and the value loss of assets and tax shield due to the increase in shareholder risk because of the leverage capital structure.

  1. Responsibilities of Companies towards Employees

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Monray Marsellus Botha

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available Central to company law is the promotion of corporate governance. An important question in company law still today is in whose interest the company should be managed. Corporate governance needs to address the entire span of responsibilities to stakeholders of the company such as customers, employees, shareholders, suppliers and the community at large. The promotion of human rights in the application of company law must also take place. This is extremely important given the significant role of enterprises within the social and economic life of the nation. The interests of various stakeholder groups in the context of the corporation as a "social institution" should be enhanced and protected. Because corporations are part of society and the community, like all of us, it is required of them to be socially responsible and have greater accountability to all stakeholders of the company. Although directors must act in the best interests of shareholders collectively they must also consider the interests of other stakeholders. Sustainable relationships with all the relevant stakeholders are thus important. The advancement of social justice is thus important to corporations in that they should take note of the Constitution, labour legislation and company law legislation when social justice issues are dealt with. Employees have become very important stakeholders of companies and their needs should be taken into account in the bigger corporate governance and social responsibility framework.

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available This paper aims to contribute to a better knowledge of the problems of energy services provided that both the international economic literature and in the Romanian, it continues to be addressed in a low position. Therefore, the author examines energy services through mechanisms that can be saved primary energy and final energy in the context of declining energy reserves worldwide. Economic and financial crisis and the current recession contribute to preventing the development of the energy services market and solutions on the framework conditions of political, economic, legal and financial aspects of energy performance contracts associated with these companies. Some Member States have already established a system requiring the national energy industry to achieve energy savings, achieving positive results: there were savings of up to 6% of final energy consumption. In a system of this type, utilities are required to obtain a fixed amount of energy savings by implementing energy efficiency improvements in their clients (such as households, companies, government or housing associations and other sectors and energy production and transport. As an alternative to savings by themselves, some systems allow utilities to purchase energy savings from other actors such as energy service companies (ESCOs. Energy saving obligations stimulate providers to change their business model from retail energy products to the provision of energy services. Energy Service Companies continues to be a key area for financing energy efficiency in the EU. In this respect, several Member States mention providing model contracts for energy services, the introduction of legislation or removing legal barriers for ESCO access to energy services in the public sector. Meanwhile, many of the measures encouraged on ESCO contain too little detail on specific actions to be taken.

    Full Text Available DOI: 10.12957/periferia.2015.21976O artigo discute a proposta do Programa Mais Educação para introdução da capoeira no espaço escolar. Tendo como pano de fundo um cenário de fortalecimento da etnicidade afro-brasileiro, debatemos em que medida a introdução da capoeira promovida pelo referido Programa pode colaborar para implementação da Lei 10639/03, responsável por incluir na LDBEN a temática "História e Cultura Afro-Brasileira”. Concluímos que apesar do reconhecimento da capoeira como patrimônio imaterial e da orientação para trabalhar com seus múltiplos aspectos, os sentidos atribuídos a ela no cotidiano escolar estão em disputa. Dessa forma, a capoeira pode ser pensada como cultura afro-brasileira, como patrimônio nacional ou ainda como simplesmente uma prática esportiva.

Decorrido algum tempo da realização desses cursos, pretendeu-se resgatar dos enfermeiros egressos dos mesmos, algumas informações que pudessem nortear o direcionamento de cursos futuros assim como avaliar a contribuição que os mesmos tenham dado no sentido de estimular a produção científica dos enfermeiros assistenciais.

  17. Implementação de programas multiestratégicos: uma proposta de matriz avaliativa

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available Os programas que buscam alcançar mudanças abrangentes envolvem a articulação entre diferentes políticas públicas, a compreensão da diversidade de demandas sociais em cada contexto e a valorização da dinâmica participativa. Frente à complexidade destas experiências é importante revisar as perspectivas avaliativas tradicionais e discutir alternativas. A partir do referencial analítico da chamada avaliação baseada na teoria (theory driven evaluation, cujo foco central é a análise da validade das concepções que ligam processos e resultados, e em um estudo de caso exploratório de caráter qualitativo do programa federal de transferência de renda Bolsa Família, o artigo apresenta como principal resultado uma proposta de matriz metodológica. O instrumento pode apoiar a avaliação da implementação de intervenções voltadas à promoção da saúde, segurança alimentar e redução da pobreza.

  18. Mel de abelhas sem ferrão: proposta de regulamentação

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ricardo Costa Rodrigues de Camargo

    Full Text Available Resumo Os méis das abelhas sem ferrão são produtos únicos da biodiversidade brasileira, presentes e valorizados pela cultura popular desde os povos originais das Américas. Por ser mais ácido e apresentar maior teor de umidade, seu sabor é peculiar e sua viscosidade é menor quando comparada ao mel proveniente da espécie exótica Apis mellifera. Devido a essas diferenças, esse produto necessita do estabelecimento de parâmetros físico-químicos específicos que sejam referência tanto para controle de qualidade como para sua comercialização. Com base em pesquisas realizadas pela Embrapa, pelo Instituto de Tecnologia de Alimentos de Campinas e pelo levantamento bibliográfico de diversos estudos científicos realizados por outros institutos de ensino e pesquisa, esta comunicação tem como objetivo esclarecer as peculiaridades deste produto e apresentar uma proposta de Regulamento Técnico de Identidade e Padrão para o Mel das Abelhas Sem Ferrão, visando sua comercialização no Estado de São Paulo, contribuindo assim para a disponibilidade de um produto seguro e de qualidade para o consumidor final.

  19. O papel político do povo na proposta republicana de Maquiavel

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Murilo Pollo Martins

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available Neste texto procuramos analisar a forma de governo republicana nas obras de Maquiavel, com destaque para o Discurso sobre as formas de governo de Florença, com o intuito de fornecer a base teórica necessária para compreender o projeto maquiaveliano de instaurar uma república em Florença, de modo que pudesse cessar os frequentes defeitos apresentados pelos regimes passados, os quais compartilhavam da característica de não considerar todos os humores ou parcelas políticas da cidade, ou seja, de favorecer apenas uma parte dela, motivo pelo qual não alcançaram uma estabilidade nas suas instituições políticas. A partir disso, nos propomos a analisar também como Maquiavel configura seu tipo de república, que possui um caráter popular, bem como o papel desempenhado pelo povo nessa república. Concluímos que na proposta de Maquiavel, embora o conflito seja inevitável, as boas leis para a cidade deverão decorrer justamente da relação antagônica das partes. Por conseguinte, o povo exerce o papel de fiscalizar as instituições e garantir a liberdade do regime político.

  20. Tecnologia Social de Mobilização para Arranjos Produtivos Locais: uma proposta de aplicabilidade

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ana Sílvia Rocha Ipiranga

    Full Text Available Apesar do crescente interesse que a abordagem de Arranps e Sistemas Produtivos Locais vem despertando no meio acadêmico e instituições públicas e privadas brasileiras, pouco se tem inovado acerca das formas de mobilização coletiva destas aglomerações produtivas territoriais, permanecendo as discussões nas áreas tradicionais de desenvolvimento das micro, pequenas e médias empresas. Este ensaio apresenta uma proposta de aplicação de uma Tecnologia Social de Mobilização dos atores/agentes de um arranjo produtivo local, objetivando o seu desenvolvimento, através do fortalecimento das relações existentes entre seus diversos atores/agentes localizados no território. Espera-se, através da exposição de uma possível aplicabilidade desta Tecnologia Social, gerar um debate sobre formas criativas de mobilização desses arranps organizacionais, que privilegiem aspectos intangíveis, não obstante serem de fundamental importância, tais como: capital social, práticas cooperativas e governança.

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available O artigo tem por objetivo estruturar uma proposta de implementação do custeio baseado em atividades na gestão de serviços odontológicos. Foi realizada uma pesquisa descritiva, por meio de um estudo de caso, com abordagem predominantemente qualitativa. O estudo inicia com uma incursão teórica nos fundamentos que sustentam o estudo empírico, abordando a importância da gestão estratégica de custos, o custeio baseado em atividades – ABC e a utilização do ABC em empresas de saúde. Após, são apresentados os procedimentos metodológicos adotados. Na sequência, discute-se a proposta realizada. A proposta de implementação do ABC contempla quatro macroetapas: identificação das atividades; atribuição dos custos às atividades; identificação dos objetos de custos; e atribuição dos custos das atividades aos objetos de custos. Foram selecionados seis procedimentos odontológicos prestados: avaliação, profilaxia, restauração, endodontia, exodontia e coroa protética porcelana. A escolha justifica-se por se tratar dos procedimentos mais representativos em termos de ocorrência e de faturamento. Além da proposta de implementação do ABC, fez-se a análise dos custos diretos de cada objeto de custo. Os custos diretos identificados referem-se aos materiais utilizados e ao processo de esterilização realizado. The goal of this article is to structure an implementation proposal of activity-based costing in the management of dental services.

    Michele Magalhães

    2018-01-01

    Full Text Available Introdução: O atendimento do paciente na fisioterapia infantil, para se tornar humano e eficaz, deve respeitar um aspecto primordial da infância: a brincadeira. A brincadeira é transportada para a sessão por meio de elementos lúdicos. A ludicidade de uma sessão geralmente depende de brinquedos (bolas, jogos de encaixe, bonecos que propiciem menos estresse e maior colaboração por parte da criança para a correta realização dos exercícios. Objetivo: O objetivo deste trabalho foi apresentar o desenvolvimento do avental lúdico que pode ser utilizado nos atendimentos da fisioterapia infantil, e avaliar quais podem ser os benefícios de tal uso. Método: O presente estudo trata da construção de um protótipo de avental lúdico, que vem como proposta de um produto que possa somar em um ambiente rico em estímulos ou ser o único objeto lúdico da sessão. Resultados: O avental foi feito com TNT azul, pois é uma cor que transmite tranquilidade, e os animais foram feitos em E.V.A. colorido e colados com cola quente. Por meio da construção da tabela de idade e estímulos, foi possível ampliar o conhecimento sobre o uso do avental de diversas formas, com crianças de idades diferentes. Considerações Finais: Os temas da humanização e do lúdico nos atendimentos da pediatria ainda são pouco explorados. Novos estudos são necessários.

  9. PROPOSTA DE AUTOMAÇÃO INDUSTRIAL EM UMA EMPRESA FABRICANTE DE BORRACHAS ESCOLARES

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    André Luiz Emmel Silva

    2018-03-01

    Full Text Available O estudo dos conceitos de automação industrial se faz necessário cada vez mais nas empresas preocupadas em melhorar a sua produtividade, influenciando diretamente na redução dos custos produtivos. Como as tecnologias relacionadas a robótica industrial estão mais acessíveis, a sua utilização adequada faz o processo adquirir melhor qualidade e maior flexibilidade, adquirindo agilidade de reposta às necessidades de mercado. Além disso, com equipamentos mais eficientes ocorre também uma redução dos riscos ergonômicos das tarefas que ainda necessitam de mão de obra humana. Este trabalho tem como objetivo propor a automação de uma das linhas de produção de uma empresa fabricante de borrachas escolares, através da criação de uma célula robotizada para a operação de embalamento. A célula será composta por um robô manipulador, alimentador vibratório e carimbador por jato de tinta de alta definição. Em um contexto geral, procura-se mostrar os benefícios que a implantação da automação em pontos específicos do processo trará para a empresa, juntamente com a substituição do método de carimbar atual. Assim, as propostas apresentadas apontam melhorias nos tempos de produção, aumento da produtividade, maior flexibilidade e agilidade de resposta às necessidades de mercado, e ainda redução do custo de fabricação das borrachas escolares.

  10. Drogas e trabalho: uma proposta de intervenção nas organizações

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Clarice Sampaio Roberto

    Full Text Available Neste artigo, trazemos à discussão uma proposta de abordagem ao uso de drogas (legais e ilegais no local de trabalho. O relato da intervenção e das respectivas considerações partiu de uma assessoria prestada a uma empresa pública, de grande porte, que demandava um projeto terapêutico e preventivo para tratar do problema. Como resposta, foi desenvolvida uma política institucional específica, alicerçada no seguinte tripé: a implantação de uma rotina norteadora para a abordagem dos funcionários quanto ao uso de drogas no trabalho; o credenciamento de locais para tratamento e a criação de comitês, liderados por funcionários, que passaram a ser responsáveis pela condução do programa após o término do trabalho da assessoria. Ressaltamos a importância da participação do maior número possível de funcionários, principalmente daqueles com poder decisório para a sustentação e implementação de um Programa, bem como a necessidade de criar uma política que intervenha no instituído e que considere os âmbitos administrativo, operacional e de saúde. Assim, marca-se uma diferença em relação à forma como, até há poucos anos, vinha sendo tratado o problema, oscilando entre o descaso e a punição.

  11. Proposta de diretrizes para processo criativo para o design virtual de embalagens

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Suzana Funk

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available Este artigo apresenta a sistematização do design virtual de embalagens, utilizando softwares de modelagem 3D como ferramentas de apoio à criação. Com os recursos tecnológicos disponíveis, a criação das embalagens normalmente é feita com o auxílio de softwares, mas com pouca ou sem sistematização do processo criativo. Em virtude disso, apresenta-se um estudo sobre os aspectos teóricos que abordam o processo criativo virtual de embalagens e uma pesquisa com profissionais que possuem experiência em modelagem 3D. É feita uma análise qualitativa e interligação destes dados e, em seguida, são propostas dez diretrizes, organizadas dentro de uma metodologia. O seu diferencial, em relação às demais, está nas fases Criar e Apresentar, que envolvem a criação e apresentação de embalagens utilizando as possibilidades de softwares de modelagem 3D. Para exemplificar a metodologia, faz-se o design de um frasco de perfume. O mesmo é apresentado com foco na geração de alternativas utilizando software. Pode-se observar que as diretrizes contribuem para conduzir as atividades, até a apresentação final do trabalho. A sistematização da criação, utilizando softwares 3D, pode potencializar o design de embalagens, diminuindo o tempo de criação e os custos com a criação de protótipos, além de aperfeiçoar a visualização final do produto.

    Almando Storck Junior

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available O presente artigo vem propor, a partir de uma experiência prática nas artes cênicas, a criação de uma metodologia, para uma vivencia artístico-educacional de aprimoramento das técnicas pessoais de comunicação, troca de experiências pessoais e coletivas. Essa metodologia baseia-se nas técnicas de trabalho ator, do teatro do oprimido, de textos contemporâneos e uso do conceito de Empowerment como proposta de fortalecimento da autonomia individual e coletiva. Sabendo que metodologia científica cuida dos procedimentos, ferramentas e caminhos do fazer científico, e que o indivíduo é, também, um ser político, propõe-se, a partir da Investigação Baseada em Arte (IBA, uma pesquisa a/r/tográfica para uma compreensão estendida do fazer universidade e uma ampliação do poder de autonomia. Como resultado, a reflexão sobre as técnicas direcionadas ao teatro, apontadas anteriormente, aliadas a preocupações acerca de desinibição e expressão oral e corporal de acadêmicos e profissionais interessados possibilitou a criação da metodologia pretendida. Desta forma, o trabalho de investigação teórica conclui-se, deixando a possibilidade de transformar-se em projeto de extensão.

A method is then outlined for building a flexible framework for performance assessment and a case study is described: an evaluation of the performance of aspects of lean thinking in an urban passenger transportation operation. The paper concludes with a discussion of the findings of the case study using the proposed method, comparing it with the evaluation method currently used by two companies in the sector under study.

    Full Text Available RESUMOUma das práticas de marketing adotada pelas organizações para ser mais eficiente diante do excesso de comunicação publicitária é a proposta de valor ao consumidor. Para o desenvolvimento desse processo, o capital humano é uma das possibilidades. Nesse sentido, o objetivo foi identificar se há a aplicação do constructo “capital humano” nas fases de conceituação e de desenvolvimento da proposta de valor das organizações estudadas. O conjunto social foi composto de executivos de marketing das melhores empresas do país para se trabalhar. Foram adotadas as abordagens qualitativa e quantitativa de pesquisa, com a técnica de análise de conteúdo e o método Análise Hierárquica do Processo, respectivamente. Os resultados do procedimento exploratório demonstraram que a totalidade das empresas entende o capital humano como atributo fundamental no desenvolvimento da proposta de valor e que a valorização da marca ocorre tendo como um dos principais pilares o capital humano. Os resultados do procedimento descritivo confirmaram o capital humano como um dos conceitos para a proposição de valor, embora esse processo de conceituação frequentemente seja alterado pelos parceiros estratégicos na etapa de desenvolvimento.ABSTRACTOne of the marketing practices adopted by organizations to be more efficient in face of the excess of advertising is the value proposition to consumers. The adoption of human capital is one of the options. To such end, the aim of this study was to confirm the use of the ‘human capital’ construct in both the conceptualization and development of the value proposition stages. The social group was comprised of marketing executives working for companies regarded as the best companies to work for. The results of the exploratory procedure showed that all companies understand that human capital is a key attribute in order to develop value proposition and that brand value takes place having human capital as

  1. Propostas de redução da idade penal no Brasil e o Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Aline Kelly da Silva

    Full Text Available Neste artigo discutimos como as propostas de redução da idade penal no Brasil tensionam o Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente. A partir da genealogia e da arqueologia propostas por Michel Foucault analisamos as Propostas de Emenda Constitucional apresentadas pela Câmara de Deputados entre os anos de 1993 e 2013. Nossa análise indica que as propostas criticam o critério cronológico adotado pelo Estatuto e propõem sua substituição pelo que chamam de critério subjetivo-psicológico. Postos em oposição aos direitos sociais, os direitos civis são tomados como balizadores de uma responsabilização dos sujeitos jovens, tornando-os mais penalizáveis. Por fim, as propostas fazem uma série de críticas à ineficácia do Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente. Essas críticas não são produzidas no sentido de ampliar a efetivação das atuais políticas, mas de instrumentar o recrudescimento punitivo a partir da desqualificação do Estatuto.

  2. Da classificação de obras lexicográficas e seus problemas: proposta de uma taxonomia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Félix Bugueño Miranda

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Dentre os desafios pendentes da teoria metalexicográfica, um dos mais importantes é a geração de modelos de classificação de obras lexicográficas. Os modelos desenvolvidos até o presente momento obedecem a critérios impressionistas, funcionais ou linguísticos. O objetivo deste trabalho é apresentar um modelo de classificação de dicionários que integre dois critérios. Considerando que os dicionários são instrumentos linguísticos concebidos para um público-alvo determinado, uma proposta de classificação deveria levar em conta os critérios funcional e linguístico. No âmbito do critério funcional, estabelece-se uma distinção entre falantes nativos e falantes não nativos. No âmbito do critério linguístico, empregam-se parâmetros tais como o número de línguas, a oposição semasiologia/onomasiologia e uma concepção diassistêmica da linguagem. A proposta classificatória apresentada é do tipo taxonômico. Acredita-se que uma classificação taxonômica ofereça melhores resultados que uma proposta tipológica. É necessário salientar, no entanto, que ainda não é possível gerar uma classificação exaustiva de obras lexicográficas de validez universal.

    2017-03-01

    Full Text Available O índice de dissecação do relevo é uma análise morfométrica que considera o grau de entalhamento do vale e dimensão interfluvial média. Ross (1992 e 1994 formalizou este índice o qual possui diversas aplicações, como segmentação do relevo, fornecer bases para o mapeamento geomorfológico, estudar a relação morfogênese - pedogênese e vulnerabilidade ambiental. O cálculo e mapeamento do índice de dissecação de forma analógica é extremamente dispendioso além de estar sujeito a erros humanos e a diferenças de interpretação. Atualmente não existe um método para realizar de forma totalmente automatizada o cálculo do índice de dissecação e que considere ambas as variáveis propostas por Ross (grau de entalhamento dos vales e dimensão interfluvial média. O objetivo deste artigo é apresentar uma rotina de automatização do cálculo do índice de dissecação para cada pixel a partir de um modelo digital de elevação. O método é dividido em quatro etapas principais, sendo elas o tratamento do modelo digital de elevação, o mapeamento do grau de entalhamento dos vales, o mapeamento da dimensão interfluvial média para cada bacia e a integração destes dois últimos produtos. De acordo com a proposta de Ross (1994, ao final do mapeamento deve-se classificar os valores de dissecação em função de uma escala que varia de muito fraca a muito forte. Ao comparar o mapa resultante da proposta de classificação de Ross a um modelo tridimensional, ao mapa de declividade da área e da rede de drenagem notou-se alguns problemas, como a classe de dissecação muito forte ocorrer em regiões planas e com grau de entalhamento da drenagem extremamente baixo. Então foram sugeridas e testadas mais três propostas de classificação dos valores de dissecação.

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available Introduction: The article discusses the issue of logistic innovations in transport. The essentials of logistic innovations in transport together with some examples of specific innovations are presented. The role of the client's needs in transport innovations is indicated. The most vital postulates affecting the innovativeness of shipping companies and derived from the author's experience as well as scholarly publications, are time, safety, reliability as well as comprehensiveness of service offer. Following the analysis of the issue, and on the grounds of Kaizen's and Lean's method, the concept of continuous innovations is suggested as very useful for the development of transport. The potential of clusters as the source of logistic innovations in transport is emphasised. Methods: The discussion of the issue was preceded by the author's analysis of written sources on innovativeness, the evaluation of ratings of innovativeness as well as the analysis of rewarded innovative solutions in transport subsequent to the businesses participation in the programme of innovative solutions in transport. The role of innovation practical business operations is argued following the analysis of some strategic documents such as: 2011 White Paper and the Strategy for the Development of Transport by 2020 adopted by the Polish government in 2013. Aim: The aim of the article is to present the role and significance of the issue of logistic innovations in transport and to cite instances of practical solutions implemented by shipping companies, the solutions which resulted in measurable effects. Following the author's observation of the instances of innovative solutions as well as his analysis of the ratings of innovativeness, the article aims to present the conclusions as for the specific kinds of activities which are indispensable to foster innovativeness in transport. Conclusions: The conclusions derived from the author's analyses and observations show that logistic

    2017-10-01

    Full Text Available Há muito tempo, o modelo de escola organizada por ciclo tem sido palco de discussões na comunidade educacional brasileira. Observa-se que existe alguma resistência da parte dos docentes, bem como uma visão distorcida da essência da referida proposta. Nesse sentido, este estudo objetivou analisar as concepções e as bases da escola ciclada, relacionando-as à teoria sociointeracionista de Vygotsky. Trata-se de uma pesquisa descritivo-exploratória, alicerçada em pesquisa bibliográfico-documental. Foram utilizados, como autores basilares, Vygotsky (2015, 2013, 1998, Rego (2009, Mainardes (2009, além dos documentos oficiais de Mato Grosso (2010 e do Brasil (1996. A formação em ciclos implica à escola considerar o indivíduo como um ser histórico-social, levando em conta o ambiente no qual está inserido e, assim, desenvolver, no ambiente escolar, práticas pedagógicas que ampliem e desenvolvam as capacidades que ainda requerem ser apropriadas e compreendidas, a partir da interação social de cada sujeito. Conclui-se que a proposta das escolas organizadas em ciclos está sedimentada na teoria sociointeracionista de Vygotsky, todavia, alguns fatores são limitantes, dentre eles, a falta de formação suficiente dos professores, para executar a proposta.  Acredita-se que, se esta abordagem for bem trabalhada, será possível ter uma escola mais inclusiva, que tenha proximidade com a comunidade, na qual está inserida, que promova maior aproximação do aluno com o conhecimento científico, bem como o possibilite avançar no processo sócio-histórico de humanização, criando possibilidades para que seja um sujeito capaz de contribuir para uma transformação social.

  16. Paisagem e capital social: proposta metológica para leitura da paisagem

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Karla Caser

    2006-12-01

    Full Text Available O termo capital social data do começo do século 20 na área de educação, mas foi Jane Jacobs, em seu livro Vida e morte das grandes cidades americanas, que o introduziu para designar a saudável rede de relações sociais existente em sua vizinhança em Nova Iorque. Posteriormente, o conceito de capital social foi desenvolvido pelo sociólogo Pierre Bourdieu, cujos escritos contribuíram para o reconhecimento de Capital Social, nos anos 90, como uma área de pesquisa multidisciplinar capaz de ligar aspectos físicos a aspectos sociológicos e econômicos. Contudo, Bourdieu não desenvolveu plenamente a relação entre capital social e paisagem. Esse artigo extende o debate atual sobre capital social para a área de design da paisagem e enfoca a criação de metodologia para leitura da paisagem urbana. Dentro desse contexto e baseado em tese de doutorado defendida na área de Arquitetura da Paisagem na University of Guelph, Canadá, primeiramente a teoria de capital social de Bourdieu é desenvolvida, com ênfase nas suas dimensões físicas, e é apresentado o conceito de capital social objetificado para descrever o processo através do qual o capital social é cristalizado na paisagem. Este conceito proposto é considerado pertinente para atuar como um fundamento transdiciplinar para a intervenção na paisagem urbana brasileira. Num segundo momento é proposta uma metodologia que se julga capaz de funcionar como uma ferramenta para arquitetos e planejadores desenvolver um design inclusivo e responsivo aos diversos usuários dos espaços de forma a ajudar a minimizar o atual quadro de exclusão social brasileiro.

Esclarecer os mitos e verdades, mostrar a importância do treinamento resistido frente à Educação Física Escolar e apresentar uma proposta de ensino, oferecendo ao professor de Educação Física reais possibilidades de ministrar esse conteúdo em suas aulas. Método: pesquisa de caráter qualitativo, do tipo bibliográfico e utilizado o método comparativo entre os estudos buscados nas bases de dados Portal de Periódicos CAPES, Scielo, Portal de Pesquisa da Bvs, Google Acadêmico, e MedLine. Os buscadores da pesquisa foram: treinamento, treinamento de força, treinamento resistido, treinamento com pesos, adolescente, criança, educação física, saúde, maturação sexual e força muscular. Resultados: foram encontrados 20 artigos que foram revisados para o presente estudo. Considerações finais: o treinamento resistido em crianças e adolescentes é benéfico, quando aplicados corretamente, respeitando a individualidade biológica e a maturação do discente. Os malefícios provenientes da aplicação do treinamento de força surgem do exagero do treinamento levado a níveis profissionais e intensos nos jovens discentes e da má alimentação combinada à ingestão de anabólicos. O profissional de Educação Física deve estar atento ao nível de desenvolvimento dos jovens antes de prescrever o treinamento de força. Esta revisão pode auxiliar profissionais da Educação Física a implantar treinamentos de força em crianças e adolescentes visto que traz inúmeros benefícios à saúde, além do ganho da força muscular.

  18. Jardim sensorial: uma proposta para crianças deficientes visuais.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Maria Carolina Sabbagh

    2007-06-01

    Full Text Available As crianças deficientes visuais nascem com dificuldades de formação de conceitos e de construção mental do espaço que as rodeia. Durante a infância, há a necessidade de estímulo precoce de outros sentidos e de descrições verbais que possam lhes proporcionar essas informações. Entretanto, muitas crianças deficientes visuais são educadas e estimuladas pelos pais e professores da mesma maneira que crianças videntes, só que sem a visão, gerando introspecção e inserção deficitária no mundo exterior. O objetivo deste projeto foi fornecer informações paisagísticas e agronômicas que pudessem subsidiar a criação de um espaço público voltado para crianças portadoras de deficiência visual total na faixa etária de 5 -10 anos. Esse espaço foi concebido sob a premissa de que as crianças pudessem descobrir a natureza por meio de um contato estreito com elementos advindos dela, a partir da percepção. Além disso, o espaço foi criado de forma lúdica, permitindo que as crianças pudessem brincar sob monitoria assistida, a fim de favorecer o desenvolvimento precoce de autonomia e autoconfiança. Nele, foram valorizados espaços amplos, seguros e organizados, contendo elementos naturais, de forma a permitir que as crianças apresentassem um interesse precoce pelo mundo que as rodeia e ampliassem seus horizontes. Ele também apresenta uma proposta educacional em que é possível o reconhecimento das espécies do cotidiano. As plantas oram cuidadosamente selecionadas para aguçarem o tato e o olfato, utilizando-se texturas, formas e densidades diferenciadas, além de fragrâncias diversas. Em complemento, também foram inseridos elementos que propiciassem condições variadas de sonoridade.

    Gustavo Henrique Cepolini Ferreira

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available O presente artigo discute algumas perspectivas inerentes ao Parque Nacional Serra da Canastra (PNSC em Minas Gerais, sobretudo, a partir das propostas para essa Unidade de Conservação de Proteção Integral a partir de 2005 com o 2º Plano de Manejo, bem como os desdobramentos sob os territórios camponeses com o Grupo de Trabalho Interministerial (GTI de 2006, que ratificaram a existência de um Parque com aproximadamente 200 mil hectares. Diante disso, novas tensões entre territorialidades emergem na região da Serra da Canastra, seguidas de mobilizações para defender a permanência do campesinato na área dos 130 mil hectares, os quais não foram regularizados nos anos subsequentes à criação do PNSC em 1972. Nesse sentido, a pesquisa utiliza-se de uma ampla revisão bibliográfica, de legislações e trabalhos de campo na região da Serra da Canastra para compreender o processo de regularização fundiária desencadeado pelo órgão ambiental, leia-se ICMBio, em consonância com os mais diversos mecanismos, ou seja, compensação de reserva legal e ambiental atreladas aos interesses de mineradoras nacionais e internacionais e do agronegócio; fazendo com que a aliança terra-capital, seja ampliada para ‘aliança terra-capital-ambiental, com a mesma roupagem excludente e repressora de outrora. Nesse devir, a resistência camponesa através de inúmeras estratégias chegaram à Justiça Federal, Ministério Público e Defensoria Pública da União o que possibilitou a criação de uma Comissão da Verdade da Serra da Canastra assim como uma perícia técnica para mapear os “Canastreiros” a partir dos Direitos dos Povos e Comunidades Tradicionais. Dessa forma, será possível mediar, e, sobretudo, compreender os conflitos territoriais para não prosseguirem com os mesmos equívocos sob a égide da democracia.

Este artigo objetiva fornecer visão ampla e comparativa entre as principais propostas existentes na literatura. A metodologia utilizada foi análise sistemática englobando 17 propostas de gestão de riscos com nanomateriais. Os resultados indicam que, embora não haja consenso sobre as métricas utilizadas para caracterizar os riscos dos nanomateriais, a adoção do Princípio da Precaução, do enfoque de controle de bandas e da participação dos envolvidos se sobressai entre os documentos analisados.

  1. KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT IN A COMPANY

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Petrică Stoica

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available All organisations are primarily interested in maintaining and increasing intellectual capital assets, and knowledge management represents only a manner of supporting the satisfaction of this interest and of laying stress on this type of assets. A mistaken conception, according to which at the level of a company there is a finite knowledge store that can be “managed”, reflects nothing but the fact that, at the beginning, many companies have overlooked the general aim of their business. The intangible part is immaterial, difficult to describe, quantify and measure. The intangible asset has and creates value and that is why the evaluation of intellectual property does not represent a simple activity. From a modern viewpoint, organisational learning does not consist only in obtaining new knowledge, but also considers its employment in carrying out the activities of the company, and so it contributes to the generation of new knowledge. The success of companies depends on the personnel’s ability to understand, manipulate and develop information. In case of epistemic economy, the improvement of the innovation capacity, the creation of value and wealth are based on the division of knowledge.

Partindo do princípio que a excelência empresarial está baseada na criação de valor, que se efetiva a partir de iniciativas, decisões e ações, o presente artigo apresenta uma proposta de modelo de gestão para a engenharia de manutenção, a partir da estruturação de um sistema de medição formado por um conjunto de indicadores de desempenho, tomando-se como premissa uma formulação estratégica de controle de custos da manutenção. Sua estrutura é baseada na função da engenharia de manutenção, na qual continuamente busca-se a redução de desperdícios, a modificação de sistemas obsoletos e a implantação de metodologias eficazes.The continuous search for excellence requires business managers to manage companies' internal and external processes using a strategic vision approach. By assuming that business excellence is based on creating value which is as effective as initiatives, decisions and actions that set value within the company, this paper proposes a model of management for maintenance using a system of measurement composed of a set of performance indicators. They are used to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of maintenance and are mainly based on a strategy to control the costs with maintenance. Its structure is based on the function of the engineering maintenance, which continually seeks to reduce wastage, the modification of obsolete systems, and the deployment of effective methodologies.

O desenvolvimento do ISEF está sendo demonstrado a partir de pesquisa envolvendo 684 empresas pertencentes a 20 setores de atividades. O processamento dos dados coletados foi realizado por meio de software especialmente desenvolvido para essa pesquisa, gerando um grande número de informações agrupadas em dezenas de tabelas. Os procedimentos metodológicos utilizados foram expostos em detalhes. A situação financeira das empresas foi avaliada por intermédio do modelo Fleuriet, bastante conhecido nos meios acadêmicos devido aos seus sólidos fundamentos teóricos e à objetividade das suas respostas. A análise da rentabilidade do capital próprio foi desenvolvida a partir da fórmula Du Pont, ferramenta antiga e até hoje largamente utilizada. Além de integrar as avaliações da situação financeira e da rentabilidade de uma empresa em particular, determinando o grau de sua saúde econômico-financeira, o ISEF fornece uma visão bastante ampla sobre o que está ocorrendo em diferentes setores de atividades e no ambiente empresarial como um todo.This paper introduces a new financial statement analysis model that allows us to integrate evaluations of the company's financial situation and the profitability of its own capital into one single measure, called companies' Economic-Financial Health Indicator (ISEF.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho propõe uma nova forma de estruturação da lista de materiais, para empresas fabricantes de bens de capital, apesar dos conceitos gerais serem passíveis de utilização em outros tipos de companhias de manufatura. A lista de materiais, como elemento fomentador da integração, é modelada com base em necessidades-chave de diversos usuários, desde o orçamento até a expedição. O objetivo é facilitar as atividades de administração de materiais e gestão da produção. A metodologia desenvolvida consiste em estruturar uma lista de materiais paralela, delineada em função do organograma fabril da empresa e da seqüência de fabricação do produto no tempo. Esses conceitos foram aplicados na formação de grupos de dispositivos dedicados, utilizados na fabricação de hidrogeradores, na SADE VIGESA S/A., fábrica de Araraquara.This paper suggests a new idea to form a Bill of Materials (BOM, for heavy equipment manufacturing companies, with the general concepts applied in others kind of manufacturing companies. The bill of materials, as an essential element of integration, from marketing to delivery, aims to facilitate the activities of Production Planning and of the Control System. The methodology developed is based on a new approach to build parallel bill of materials, using concepts of pseudo levels and assemblies, mainly based on the industrial organizational structure of the company and on the sequence of product fabrication in time. The implementation of this system for dedicated fixtures resulted in expressive reduction of lead time, project hours, fabrication hours and costs.

    Whether or not official work/family balance measures exist within an organization, scheduling accommodations often go through informal channels involving colleagues and superiors and are negotiated within interpersonal relationships. This study examines the relationship dimensions of the scheduling strategies of cleaners working atypical hours in the transport sector through the lenses of ergonomic activity, network, and gender analyses. Using semi-directed interviews, observation, and network analysis, we revealed the effect of gender on relationship dynamics and the influence of these dynamics on work/family balance strategies deployed by cleaners. One of the main contributions of this study is to demonstrate the decisive effect of relationships by revealing inequalities in access to organizational social networks. Creating spaces to discuss work/family balancing and a more equitable circulation of information could contribute to reducing inequalities associated with gender, social status, and family responsibilities and support the work/family strategies developed by workers dealing with restrictive work schedules. Résumé Les accommodements du temps de travail pour la conciliation travail-famille (CTF) passent souvent par des ententes informelles qui s'inscrivent dans les relations entre collègues ou avec des gestionnaires. Notre étude, intégrant l'ergonomie et la communication dans une perspective de genre, porte sur les dimensions relationnelles des stratégies de choix d'horaire d'agentes et agents de nettoyage devant composer avec des horaires atypiques dans le secteur des transports. À partir d'entretiens semi-dirigés, d'observations et d'analyse de réseaux, nous avons pu observer l'influence des dynamiques relationnelles, notamment de genre, sur les stratégies de CTF.

Even if profits have marked time in volume (-57% for BP, -65% for Shell..), the net margins have not significantly suffered and the available cash remains comfortable (14 billion euros for Total as an example). The perspectives offered by the new offshore sites (like Santos in Brazil) added to the fabulous promises of the Iraqi market where 'majors' can now make their come-back will be the key of success of oil companies. The overall exploration-production investments should start up again by the beginning of 2011. For the only offshore drilling domain, they should rise up by 32% during the 2009-2013 period which represents a sum of 367 billion dollars. (J.S.)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Olson, Craig L.

    2001-01-01

    Heavy ion beam transport through the containment chamber plays a crucial role in all heavy ion fusion (HIF) scenarios. Here, several parameters are used to characterize the operating space for HIF beams; transport modes are assessed in relation to evolving target/accelerator requirements; results of recent relevant experiments and simulations of HIF transport are summarized; and relevant instabilities are reviewed. All transport options still exist, including (1) vacuum ballistic transport, (2) neutralized ballistic transport, and (3) channel-like transport. Presently, the European HIF program favors vacuum ballistic transport, while the US HIF program favors neutralized ballistic transport with channel-like transport as an alternate approach. Further transport research is needed to clearly guide selection of the most attractive, integrated HIF system

    Full Text Available Propõe-se a elaboração de um protocolo de intervenção de enfermagem em feridas, utilizando-se Laser de Baixa Intensidade (LBI, para subsidiar profissionais de saúde no cuidado delas. Os LBI utilizados como coadjuvantes no tratamento de feridas auxiliam a restauração tecidual, melhoram a regeneração e a cicatrização dos tecidos, atuam na inflamação e no edema, aliviando a dor. Utilizou-se metodologia descritivo-exploratória com abordagem quantitativa, cuja proposta foi submetida à apreciação de 18 juízes: 06 enfermeiros, 06 físicos, 06 médicos, todos especializados no assunto, que responderam voluntariamente, observadas todas as normas éticas, questões abertas e fechadas, sobre cada item do protocolo. Os resultados da análise pelos 18 juízes evidenciaram a necessidade, a abrangência, a sistematização da avaliação e aplicação efetiva da ferida e do registro dos dados. Dois juízes sugeriram alterar somente a sequência de algumas questões e dois opinaram adicionar a relação existente entre a energia total ministrada pelo laser e as áreas totais de tratamento e a distância entre os pontos de aplicação. Os resultados obtidos permitem inferir que a proposta é importante e necessária para a terapêutica com LBI em feridas e subsidiar a sistematização dessa terapêutica pelos enfermeiros e demais profissionais de saúde capacitados para esse fim.

    Full Text Available Esta proposta de ação interdisciplinar utiliza uma UEPS (Unidade de Ensino Potencialmente Significativa, baseada na aprendizagem significativa de Ausubel e fundamentada em Moreira. A experimentação é uma das estratégias de ensino sugeridas para ser usada para compreender e aprofundar os conhecimentos sobre o metabolismo dos fungos e a reação química envolvida. Outra estratégia de aprendizagem sugerida é a elaboração de mapas conceituais, um inicial, levando em conta os conhecimentos prévios dos alunos e outro ao final da UEPS, com a finalidade de avaliar se houve a ocorrência de aprendizagem significativa. Os parâmetros curriculares nacionais, as orientações curriculares nacionais do ensino médio e os autores Batista e Salvi fundamentam esta proposta interdisciplinar. Esta UEPS sobre a fermentação do pão e do vinho é indicada para abordar o estudo ao Reino Fungi e seus processos metabólicos, no ensino médio. É possível uma abordagem interdisciplinar com: química, na compreensão das reações químicas e suas relações; história, através do surgimento e da utilização do pão e do vinho pelas civilizações; ensino religioso na abordagem dos rituais religiosos do cristianismo e na arte, num momento de interação dos conhecimentos adquiridos para a realização de uma dramatização.

  7. Uma proposta de classificação da agressividade ambiental para a cidade de Salvador-BA

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    J. M. L. Vilasboas

    Full Text Available Este trabalho contém uma proposta de classificação da agressividade ambiental para a cidade de Salvador, a partir da análise dos resul- tados das pesquisas de campo efetuadas pelos autores em diversos bairros dessa capital, no período de 2003 a 2007, e de informações obtidas junto a projetistas e empresas de recuperação de concreto armado. Os estudos realizados visaram a identificar as regiões da cidade com maior número de ocorrência de patologias em edificações cujas estruturas sofreram intervenção. Os dados obtidos, após análise, foram utilizados como indicativos do grau de agressividade ambiental das diferentes áreas estudadas. Análises estatísticas foram realizadas no sentido de se avaliar as variáveis que mais influenciam na intensidade do ataque às estruturas de concreto armado pelos agentes ambientais em Salvador, e foram propostas equações empíricas para a previsão do grau de agressividade ambiental em diferentes pontos da cidade, em função das variáveis escolhidas. Como resultado final do trabalho, um mapeamento foi elaborado para a zona urbana da cidade, classificando-a em diferentes níveis de agressividade ambiental às estruturas de concreto armado. Apesar de se tratar de um trabalho empírico, cujos dados referem-se a uma cidade em particular, os autores acreditam que a metodologia empregada possa ser utilizada em outras cidades do Brasil, desde que sejam providenciadas as alterações pertinentes.

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available Studies focused on sustainable mobility have been growing since the late twentieth century, and since then the empirical and theoretical contributions are increasing in this scope. However, this work introduces a topic that has been little developed in the transportation area yet, which is the aspect of the vulnerability of urban mobility, by potentially facing sudden and spontaneous threats, in terms of natural resources, concerning availability itself and the economic volatility of these commodities (e.g. oil, natural gas, etc.. Thus, this article contributes with a historical review of the relationship between transport and energy sources. Besides that, it also contributes with an incipient framework of the urban mobility resilience concept.

    The importance of training is growing in all business areas and fields and especially in hi-tech companies like engineering firms. Nuclear projects are highly multidisciplinary and, even in the initial awarding and pre-construction phases, need to be staffed with personnel that is well-prepared and highly-qualified in areas that, in most cases, are not covered by university studies. This article examines the variables that influence the design of specific training for nuclear projects in engineering firms, along with new training technologies (e-learning) and new regulatory aspects (IS-12).

    Full Text Available A business cluster is the merging of two businesses or more, under the authority of one company called the parent company; the companies under its control are called the affiliates. What raises the debate about business clustering is the contradiction that may appear, at first glance, in the modus operandi of this business cluster and the relationship existing between its structures, knowing that the affiliated company has a legal independent status, but is at the same time subordinate to the parent company and subject to its control. The absence of an independent and detailed legal text to organize the mysteries of this giant economic structure makes this debate more intense.

    The ownership structure of Finland's leading natural gas company, Gasum, changed fundamentally in 1999, and the company is now no longer a subsidiary of Fortum Corporation. 'Our new strong and broad ownership base will enable us to develop the natural gas business and pipeline network in Finland in response to the requirements of our Finnish customers', says Antero Jaennes, Gasum's Chairman and CEO, who stresses that Gasum is committed to remaining the leading developer of the Finnish natural gas market and the number-one gas supplier. Natural gas usage in Finland in 1999 totalled 3.9 billion m 3 (38.7 TWh), unchanged from 1998. Natural gas accounted for 11% of Finland's total primary energy need, as it did in 1998. The proportion of natural gas used in district heating rose by 2% to 36%, and moved down 2% in power generation to 10%. Industry's use of natural gas fell 1% to 17%. 75% of natural gas was used in combined heat and power (CHP) generation in industry and district heating. In 2000, Gasum expects to sell 4 billion m 3 of natural gas (40 TWh)

Revelaram que o reconhecimento inicial do ED/2010/9 afetou significativamente os demonstrativos contábeis e os indicadores financeiros das empresas com operações de arrendamento mercantil operacional, aumentando a percepção do endividamento e diminuindo a percepção de liquidez e de rentabilidade das arrendatárias.

  5. Valuating the Investment Efficiency of Distribution Companies

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    M. Karajica

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available The task of this study is to valuate the investment efficiency of distribution companies. Although a series of publications and studies has been dedicated to this topic, it is difficult to find a general consensus in defining the investment efficiency of a company. Nevertheless if we simplify an imaginary  company as a production unit in which a series of actions transforms inputs to outputs, efficiency can be understood as like an effort to achieve maximum value of the outputs together with minimum usage of inputs, where the inputs constitute investments by a company. The investment efficiency of a company can be measured by expressing the absolute values of selected inputs and outputs, a relative expression of inputs and outputs, and perhaps an expression of the difference between them. However, an examination of the efficiency of a certain company is impossible without a valuation of other companies. In view of the amount of benchmarking, it should be emphasized, that this study is dedicated to a certain category of benchmarking, which we may term investment benchmarking. This benchmarking can be defined as a comparison of companies in terms investment efficiency. The purpose of this comparison is not only to investigate levels of investment efficiency and to relate them to other companies from the same branch, but also to locate the greatest efficiency and indicate potential improvement.

    1999-07-01

    Distribution functions of annual income of companies are analyzed based on two company databases. A clear power law distribution consistent with the Zipf's law can be confirmed for Japanese companies over more than three decades in income scale. Similar distributions can be confirmed in some other countries. It is confirmed that such power laws hold in most of job categories with slightly modified exponents. An annual income of a company is about two orders of magnitude smaller than its total assets, and the growth rate distribution of income is nearly independent of the income size in contrast to the case of growth rate of assets.

    2017-03-01

    Full Text Available Este trabalho pretende analisar as relações existentes entre o discurso atual sobre a emancipação através da Educação, enunciado pelas propostas educacionais ditas inovadoras, e as obras publicadas no século XVI, como Utopia, de Thomas More, onde a emancipação estava condicionada a uma transformação social profunda. A emancipação, como categoria, foi abordada por Marx em suas obras de juventude, ora como categoria de análise da emancipação religiosa (A Questão Judaica, ora como categoria condicionada pela alienação (Manuscritos Econômico-Filosóficos. Uma Utopia, em determinado momento histórico, aparece como discurso de fronteiras sempre móveis, sempre alguns passos à frente da realidade objetiva. Ela também se constitui como obra crítica ao existente em sua época. A partir desta constatação, propõe-se a análise do discurso emancipatório presente nas propostas educacionais ditas ―inovadoras‖ na atualidade, que atribuem ao poder presente na individualidade, na subjetividade e no protagonismo do aluno a emancipação do homem, desprezando ou desconsiderando a complexidade do contexto histórico social mais amplo. Com esta proposta, pretende-se discutir limites e potencialidades das propostas educacionais ditas ―inovadoras‖.

    1998-01-01

    A growing list of Canadian companies are searching for oil and gas onshore in England and France. Cirque Energy Corp., Vermilion Resources Ltd., Morrison Middlefield Resources Ltd., and Bow Valley Energy Ltd., are among the companies that are taking advantage of the underexplored basins, little competition, availability of land, and (in the case of the United Kingdom) a superior fiscal regime. Cirque Energy Corp. entered the U.K. in 1995 and currently has a 220,000 acre land position in the East Midlands basin, 250 km north of London. The main producing reservoirs are Permo-Carboniferous in age. The geology is similar to that in the North Sea. In November 1998, Cirque plans to build a 2,500 metre, six inch pipeline to transport up to 1,500 gross bbls of oil per day. Vermilion Resources Ltd. acquired oil and gas assets in the Paris and Aquitaine basin. The company has executed a $10.1 million workover and recompletion program on 42 wells which has increased production to more than 6,000 BOE per day from the previous 4,000 BOE per day. 3 figs

    Full Text Available Resumo Este artigo analisa o documento Pátria Educadora: A qualificação do Ensino Básico como obra de construção nacional, em circulação desde abril de 2015 em sua versão preliminar. Para isso, utilizam-se conceitos-ferramentas de Michel Foucault, tais como discurso e governamentalidade, e olha-se para as ações propostas pelo documento para o ensino público, as quais se afinam com princípios neoliberais que regulam várias áreas, dentre elas, o campo educacional. Destacam-se a presença da Teoria do Capital Humano e a lógica do mercado incidindo sobre alunos, professores e instituições, colocando todos num jogo permanente de concorrência. Além disso, percebe-se um discurso que desqualifica professores e instituições e apresenta esse documento como capaz de salvar a educação brasileira.

É possível responder essa pergunta de várias formas e essas formas irão navegar por diferentes concepções teóricas. O desenvolvimento das capacidades foi utilizado por autores como Amartya Sen e Martha Nussbaum no sentido de fundamentar pressupostos como liberdade e igualdade. Nessa esteira, Nussbaum usa a mesma lógica para pensar a relação entre humanos e não-humanas. A discussão sobre a proteção dos animais não-humanos, desde o seu reconhecimento como sujeitos de direitos até o dever de respeito, encontra diferentes teorias na ética prática. O presente artigo analisa a proposta de Martha Nussbaum, cujo argumento do desenvolvimento das capacidades fundamenta o reconhecimento do dever de respeito e reconhecimento dos animais não-humanos como sujeitos de direitos.

A autonomia planejada se torna real, fazendo com que os clientes não mais exerçam práticas fragmentadas, decorrentes da pedagogia tradicional. O cliente autônomo alcança, pois, a plenitude das ações.

    Turning oil into profit is the engine that propels the industry forward. Today, that engine is sputtering, threatened by a longtime friend and adversary, the federal government. As the authors approach the 21st century, most industry analysts expect the trend in the US toward ever more stringent regulation of oil drilling, transportation, and refining to continue. What kind of oil company can profit on that playing field? Will the 21st century favor international producers with upstream and downstream operations scattered across the globe? Or will it reward companies that focus on the American market and its myriad rules and regulations? A close look at two American-based companies offers some perspective. Exxon is a world-wide producer, refiner and seller of petroleum products and Arco, a California-based company that was among the first to view government intervention as an opportunity to gain competitive advantage

    Whereas climate change will have significant consequences on various economic sectors (infrastructures, energy and water supply, agriculture, cities and buildings, and so on), population behaviours and uses will have to be deeply changed, and this is more particularly the case for enterprises and companies. This guide aims at presenting solutions to face the challenge of climate change for enterprises. In its first part, it outlines how our climate is already changing, gives an overview of main future climate trends in the World, indicates what will be the future climate in France, discusses the noticeable and brutal consequences for activities, resources and territories, outlines that adaptation to tomorrow's climate begins now, and discusses to which climate we'll have to adapt at the local level. In the second part, this publication explains why enterprises must adapt themselves to climate change: enterprises are in a changing environment, and must take a legal and standard framework into account, but this adaptation will have a cost. Adaptation also means uncertainty management, and enterprises are facing obstacles and brakes to adaptation. The last part describes how to implement a strategy of adaptation in an enterprise: resources for adaptation, integration of enterprise management, understanding needs to convince within the enterprise itself, assessment of vulnerability to climate change, how to define priorities for action, which options to choose to adapt the enterprise, how to implement the strategy and how to follow it up and assess it. Some sector-related sheets are provided in appendix. They indicate identified risks, potential impacts of national policies for enterprises, measures which can be freely implemented by enterprises, and identified opportunities for various sectors (health, agriculture, forest, coastal areas, fishery and aquaculture, energy and industry, transport infrastructure, town planning and built environment, tourism

  14. Southern company energy storage study :

    2013-03-01

    This study evaluates the business case for additional bulk electric energy storage in the Southern Company service territory for the year 2020. The model was used to examine how system operations are likely to change as additional storage is added. The storage resources were allowed to provide energy time shift, regulation reserve, and spinning reserve services. Several storage facilities, including pumped hydroelectric systems, flywheels, and bulk-scale batteries, were considered. These scenarios were tested against a range of sensitivities: three different natural gas price assumptions, a 15% decrease in coal-fired generation capacity, and a high renewable penetration (10% of total generation from wind energy). Only in the elevated natural gas price sensitivities did some of the additional bulk-scale storage projects appear justifiable on the basis of projected production cost savings. Enabling existing peak shaving hydroelectric plants to provide regulation and spinning reserve, however, is likely to provide savings that justify the project cost even at anticipated natural gas price levels. Transmission and distribution applications of storage were not examined in this study. Allowing new storage facilities to serve both bulk grid and transmission/distribution-level needs may provide for increased benefit streams, and thus make a stronger business case for additional storage.

    Full Text Available Every company has a different structure of balance sheet. Some of the companies have more liabilities than equity. Considering the industry or debt-to-equity ratio, the balance sheet structure affects the company profitability measured by DuPont system. The main objective of the paper is to analyze the structure of balance sheet and to identify some optimal levels in order to increase company profitability. The DuPont returns like ROA (return on assets and ROE (return on equity will be used to measure the company profitability, while the debt-to-equity ratio will be used as a measure (reflection of capital structure. The samples consist on the most profitable non-financial companies ranked in Fortune Global 500. The companies will be grouped in clusters (based on industry or debt-to-equity ratio in order to identify the signification of the correlation between the profit and the balance sheet structure. The main results of the paper refer to the company profitability that can be increased by using an optimal structure of liabilities and equity.
