Stakeholders Management For Effective Software Engineering Projects In Nigeria

ABSTRACTSoftware engineering projects (SEP) nowadays acknowledge the importance of incorporating many people, groups, and organizations with interest or requirements during project development phases for the realization of successful project. These groups who are collectively referred to as stakeholders are not limited to those who use it, rather those who build, test, operate, maintain, evaluate, and pay for it. One of the major concerns in SEP is the recognition and management of project st...

Service Quality Measurement Of Nigerian Airlines

ABSTRACTThis study investigates airlines level of service to domestic passengers inNigeria using process stages with a number of service quality attributeseach. These attributes represent points where the passenger experiencevarying kind of services. Data were collected from passengers waiting fortheir flights using a well-structured questionnaire on a five-point likertscale regarding passenger's expectations and perception of service offer.The data was encoded into Microsoft excel and subseq...

Production Of Yogurt From Soymilk And Cow Milk Using Pineapple (Ananascomosus) As Sweeteners

ABSTRACT  The composite soymilk yogurt flavoured with pineapple as sweetener was produced from composite blend of dano milk and soymilk. It was pasteurized at 850c for 5 minutes. It was cooled , homogenized and inoculated with mixed yogurt starter culture of Lactobacillus bulgaricus, and Lactobacillus acidophilus at 250c for 24 hours. The proximate, physicochemical properties and sensory evaluation of the composite yogurt were determined. In the proximate, the study reveals tha...

Determinants Of E-Learning Adoption In Universities: Evidence From A Developing Country

ABSTRACT Electronic Learning (e-learning) – the use of ICT to support learning – has become paramount in the growth of universities worldwide. Universities are now including e-learning modules in their curricula to support and in some cases replace the face-to-face educational methods. This has spurred a lot of studies into e-learning adoption in higher learning institutions. However, studies looking at e-learning adoption from a multi-stakeholder perspective are quite missing in li...

Effects of Aqueos Extract of Bitter Kola (GARCINIA KOLA) on The Pregnancy Outcome And Early Postnatal Development of The Offspring of Diabetic Pregnant Rats

ABSTRACT Increased oxidative stress arising from the maternal hyperglycemic-induced disturbances in fetal metabolism has been suggested to play a role in the pathogenesis of disturbed embryogenesis in diabetic pregnancies. Maternal diabetes in pregnancy and the associated hyperglycemia is also believed to expose the fetus to disturbed metabolic conditions in-utero creating a ‘metabolic memory’ that programs the fetus for glucose intolerance, diabetes mellitus and obesity later in li...

Affordances And Constraints Of Seaport Smart Service Systems In A Developing Country: A Case Study From Ghana

ABSTRACT This study seeks to understand affordances and constraints of seaport smart service systems in a developing country context. Smart service systems refer to configurations of smart technologies, people and processes to co-create value for stakeholders. Examples of smart service systems discussed in information systems literature are smart homes, smart cities, smart health, and smart energy. While traditional service systems relied on people and physical processes, smart service ...

Examining The Factors That Influence The Adoption Of Mobile Money In Ghana

ABSTRACT The purpose of this research is to examine the influence of performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, facilitating conditions, hedonic motivation and price value on consumers’ behavioural intention to adopt mobile money in Ghana. Studies on mobile money in developing countries have so far focused more on issues relating to adoption, use, deployment and diffusion. The most dominant among these areas is studies on adoption. However, there still remain salient...

An Assessment of The Constraints to Cabotage Operation to Nigeria

ABSTRACT   The study assesses the level of cabotage administration in relation to cabotage operation in Nigeria since its inception. To properly evaluate the cabotage operation in Nigeria, it is important to state the four cardinal reasons federal government introduced cabotage administration. The four cardinal points are: cabotage vessels must be wholly owned by Nigerians, cabotage vessels must be manned by Nigerians, cabotage vessel must be registered in Nigeria and cabota...

Evaluation of Quality Management in Mechanical Construction Projects in Oil And Gas Industry

ABSTRACT    This study is designed to evaluate quality management in mechanical construction projects in the oil and gas industry. This evaluation was done by assessing quality assurance, quality control and planning. Three hypotheses were postulated to answer research questions. The study adopted an audit method as an appraisal strategy. To this end, an audit checklist was designed using the Iso 9001 and the companies‘ specifications as audit criteria. An extensive literatu...

Primary Productivity of The Middle Reaches of The Otamiri River; The Role of Temperature And Nutrients

ABSTRACT    The possible roles of temperature and nutrientson Primary productivity of the Middle Reaches of Otamiri River in the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Nigeria was investigated between October and November, 2016. Ten sampling points (OTP1 – OTP10) sited about 50m apart were studied. The light and dark bottle technique was used for the estimation of primary productivity and in situ measurements was made for water temperature. Other parameters were determine...

Cost Optimization in a Distribution System (A Case Study of The Seven-Up Bottling Company Plc, Aba, Abia State)

ABSTRACT This study sought to optimize the cost of distribution system of consumer goods in Nigeria with special interest in Seven-Up Bottling Company PLC, Aba Abia State products from their five (5) depots to sixteen (16) wholesale dealers. Sources of distribution were identified as the depots, while destinations or markets were identified as wholesale dealers with a view to determining the shortest route that minimized the cost of transportation from the depots to the wholesale dealer...

Plant Extracts Of Mucuna Pruriends As An Environmental Friendly Corrosion Inhibitor For Mild Steel In Acidic Environments

ABSTRACTThe inhibiting effect of aqueous extracts of MucunaPruriends (MP) on mild steel corrosion in 1 M HCl and 0.5 M H2SO4solution was investigated using weight loss and electrochemical techniques. The results revealed that MP inhibited the corrosion reaction. Polarization data reveal that the extract functioned as a mixed-type inhibitor. Inhibition efficiencies of the inhibitor increased with concentration of the extract but decreased gradually with an increase in the period of immersion. ...

Econometric Analysis Of The Effect Of Oil Theft On Tanker Shipping In Nigeria

ABSTRACTThe study carried out the econometric analysis of the effect of oil theft on tanker shipping in Nigeria.The specific objectives of this study were to examine the relationship between crude oil export trade, refined petroleum import trade and maritime GDP in Nigeria. To achieve these objectives, secondary data were sourced from CBN statistical bulletin, National bureau for statistics (NBS) and Nigerian National Petroleum cooperation (NNPC) .The data collected was subjected to econometr...

Comparison Of Morphological Changes Along The Arcuate Niger Delta Coastline (From Part Of Delta State To Part Of Rivers State

ABSTRACTThis study analysed the rate of coastal erosion and accretion along the Niger Delta coastline. The study compared Morphological changes along Ogulagha (Delta State), Twon-Brass (Bayelsa State) And Bonny Island (River State) coastlines over a period of 30 years (1986-2000-2016). Geospatial techniques were used to carry out the assessment. Satellite image of landsat 5 Thematic Mapper (TM) of December 1986, landsat 7 and 8, Enhance Thematic Mapper (ETM+) of December 2000 and 2016 of path...
