Musculoskeletal pains (MP) especially the lower back, leg, neck and shoulder pain were the common complain among the classroom teachers due to prolong desk working and standing in the classroom. The study was conducted among the primary and secondary school classroom teachers in randomly selected two hundred and seven (207) schools in Egba division of Ogun State, Nigeria.

Anthropometric Determination of Body Height from Foot Length of Adults in Abeokuta Southwest Nigeria

Forensic identification of an individual in this time of unrest in some parts of the world cannot beo .overemphasized. The study was conducted to investigate and determine the body height (Bh)from foot length (Fl). The Bh and Fl of Two hundred and sixty (260) adults(male and female) of participate in Abeokuta Southwest Nigeriaa, ages ranged between 24 years and 55 years

Development of A Generalised Solution for The Performance Measures of Queuing Systems

ABSTRACT This study developed computer software with the capacity to provide a generalized solution to queuing problems involving laborious, time consuming and complex mathematical approach of evaluating the performance measures of queuing systems when it was applied in the analysis of the six (6) fundamental performance measures of thirty (30) different organizations representing the six (6) queuing systems; the result was compared with that of mathematical computations and 97.22% complianc...

Preprocessing and Simulation of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest Outcomes Data

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a cessation of cardiac mechanical activity that occurs outside of the hospital setting and is confirmed by the absence of signs of circulation. OHCA affects nearly 1000 adult Americans every day, with overall survival rate of 10.4%. Based on previous work in this subject I try to calculate the joint probability distributions of the neurological outcomes of the OHCA outcomes in our records, based on the Event Demographics, Field Care, and Hospital Care....

Optimization Of Transportation Costs In Supply Chain Management (A Case Study Of Coca-Cola Plants In Nigeria)

ABSTRACT In the manufacturing sector management of the supply chain expenses has been identified as major costs driven problem. For many years, researchers and practitioners have concentrated on the individual processes and entities within the Supply Chain. Recently, however, many companies have realized that important cost savings can be achieved through the reduction of transportation costs throughout their Supply Chain. As companies began realizing the benefits of optimizing transportatio...

The Combined Application of Quality Function Deployment and Pareto Analysis for Hotel Services Improvement

Introduction For several years, Quality Function Deployment (QFD) has been at the leading edge of research and development in many fields (Barnett and Raja, 1995; Chiou and Tong, 2001; Han et al., 2001; Pitman et al., 1996; Pramod et al., 2007; Walker, 2002; Wang, 2007). QFD evolved as a way to incorporate knowledge about the needs and desires of end-user customers into all stages of the design, manufacture, delivery and support of products and services (Einspruch, 1996; Griffin and. Hauser, ...

A Framework For an In-House Development of Educational Management Information System

ABSTRACT A large percentage of Nigerian educational institutions use manual and paper- based system for collecting, processing, and disseminating information. This approach results in inefficient utilization of resources, low productivity and stunted growth of the educational sector. In this study the in-house users- development approach has been used to develop a computer based Educational lnformation Management System (8MS) for a typical University academic department. The existing work Sy...

A Genetic Algorithm for Job Scheduling in Two Machine Flow Shop Problem

Abstract This paper considers the problem of scheduling in flow-shop by Johnson's Algorithm method, Branch and- Bound Algorithm method and Genetic Algorithm-seethed to find an optimal sequence for n jobs m-machine problem based on minimum elapsed time.ln scheduling the two machine flow shop problem F211 I C, one has to determine a schedule that minimizes the sum of , finishing times of an arbitrary number of jobs that need to be executed on two machines, such that each job must complete proce...

Optimum Allocation of Silicone Oil in Flexible Polyurethane Foam Production

ABSTRACT The high cost of purchasing good quality flexible polyurethane foam called for this project work, which examines the possible reduction in the cost of production which will eventually lead to reduction in all overall market cost. Process optimization technique was adopted using gradual chemical variance method for the foam surfactant (silicone oil) to locate the optimum silicone oil quantity required as against the usual practice of ipart of silicone oil to 100 part of polyol for 20...

Genetic Algorithm Approach For Optimisation Of Silica Extraction For Micro-Crystalline Silicon Production

Solar collectors mainly produced from poly-crystalline (P-Si) and micro-crystalline silicon (µ-Si) are in high demand in Nigeria due to persistent power challenges. The silicon are mostly imported and µ-Si is preferable due to its low cost. The µ-Si is extracted from Rice Husk (RH). However, the procedure of setting its optimal process variables (temperature, time and solvent volume) which are determinants of the reduction in cost is under reported in the literature. The aim of this study ...

Improvement Of Facility Layout Using Systematic Layout Planning: A Case Study Of Numerical Machining Complex Limited

ABSTRACT The facilities layout problem is an integral part of facilities planning that aims to systematically arrange and locate all production units within a facility with an objective of improving the production operations of a company. Numerical Machining Complex is planning to improve the production of its manufacturing operations in its machining and fabrication workshop. It seeks to enhance the performance of the existing workshop in terms of efficiency, productivity, and space utiliza...

Development Of Risk Based Approach To Spare Part Inventory Management For Sugar Factories: A Case Study Of Chemelil Sugar Company.

ABSTRACT Risk-based approach in spare part inventory management and plant maintenance is essential for ensuring asset integrity in a process facility. The sugar industry in Kenya has been a victim of inefficient spare part inventory management resulting to unscheduled factory stoppages, factory breakdowns, obsolescence of plant and equipment whose maintenance costs are very high. This has been compounded by high maintenance costs and expensive spares which are also difficult to find and proc...

Productivity Improvement In Bus Body Manufacturing -A Case Study Of Master Fabricators Limited

ABSTRACT The manufacturing sector today faces high competition and there is an increasing demand for customers to receive quality products, at the right time and at a competitive price. This then calls for manufacturing firms to improve productivity more so in automotive manufacturing industry. Master Fabricators Limited had in the past attempted to improve throughput time for the buses manufactured by increasing the number of employees and hiring highly qualified production personnel to ste...

Development Of A Maintenance Strategy For Flour Milling Industry: A Case Study Of Corn Milling Industry In Kenya

ABSTRACT Good maintenance planning and proper resources scheduling in corn milling industry are of fundamental importance for safe and efficient operation of corn milling plants. This leads to production optimization due to reduced cost of operation. The interactions of aspects of plant safety and reliability with issues related to economic performance, such as production revenues, repair and maintenance costs, renders the problem of managing maintenance and repair activities highly complica...
