4. Addressing Nonparametric Methods of Statistical Analysis in Unique and Uncommon Data Sets: A Review of the Research.
Desc: This paper demonstrates that nonparametric statistical analysis methods are preferred in addressing smaller, non- specific data samples that are gathered through medical and psychiatric work. This is accomplished through first accessing why it is necessary to qualify statistics as part of a research assignment, and then provides a critical review of the literature in order to demonstrate why nonparametric data analysis techniques are actually more effective than standardized data analysis techniques in examining specific types of data sets. 30 pgs. Bibliography lists 15 sources.
5. Algebra and Lean Manufacturing
Desc: Doing business is simply mathematics by other means - all a question of keeping equations in balance on both sides. Labour must be balanced with capital. Resources with allocation. Customers with services or goods. Workers with rewards. The only way that such balances can be instituted and maintained is through a system of management control. At the heart of any well-run business operation is a sound theory of control and overall operating strategy. There are a variety of management control systems, for not every system is well suited for every production situation. Moreover, each management control system incorporates a particular philosophy of work (Anderegg, 2000). One of the key tools that can be used by managers as they seek to make their factories more efficient is algebra.
