Useful business analysis requires you to effectively transform data into actionable information. This book helps you use SQL and Excel to extract business information from relational databases and use that data to define business dimensions, store transactions about customers, produce results, and more. Each chapter explains when and why to perform a particular type of business analysis in order to obtain useful results, how to design and perform the analysis using SQL and Excel, and what the results should look like....
Organizational Diagnosis in Practice: A Cross - Classification Analysis Using the DEL-Technique an empirical research about organizational diagnosis in the netherlands is presented. Organizational diagnosis is seen as a strategic activity which is determined by the idiosyncrasies of the decision maker.
Suitable as a supplement or primary text, FAME integrates corporate finance with spreadsheet analysis using Excel. It is ideal for courses in financial management, financial models, capital budgeting, or case courses. This edition is updated for Excel 2000 as well as new topics in finance.
This book teaches the first principles of the finite element method. It presents the theory of the finite element method while maintaining a balance between its mathematical formulation, programming implementation, and application using commercial software. The computer implementation is carried out using MATLAB, while the practical applications are carried out in both MATLAB and Abaqus.
Maintaining high annotation consistency in large corpora is crucial for statistical learning; however, such work is hard, especially for tasks containing semantic elements. This paper describes predicate argument structure analysis using transformation-based learning. An advantage of transformation-based learning is the readability of learned rules.
Sentiment analysis seeks to identify the viewpoint(s) underlying a text span; an example application is classifying a movie review as “thumbs up” or “thumbs down”. To determine this sentiment polarity, we propose a novel machine-learning method that applies text-categorization techniques to just the subjective portions of the document. Extracting these portions can be implemented using efﬁcient techniques for ﬁnding minimum cuts in graphs; this greatly facilitates incorporation of cross-sentence contextual constraints. ...
The SAUMER system uses specifications of natural language grammars, which consist of rules and metarules. to provide a semantic interpretation of an input sentence. The SAUMER ' Specification Language (SSL) is a programming language which c o m b i n ~ some of the features of generalised phrase structure grammars (Gazdar. 1981 ). like the correspondence between syntactic and semantic rules, with definite clause grammars (DCC-s) (Pereira and Warren. 1980) to create an executable g r a m m a r specification. ...
MATLAB is a numeric computation software for engineering and scientific
calculations. MATLAB is increasingly being used by students, researchers,
practicing engineers and technicians. The causes of MATLAB popularity are
legion. Among them are its iterative mode of operation, built-in functions,
simple programming, rich set of graphing facilities, possibilities for writing
additional functions, and its extensive toolboxes.

The U-Joint shown in the figure below is made of steel. A torsion load of 10,000 INLB is uniformly applied over the top portion surface of the U-Joint. Determine the von Mises stresses, and maximum deflection under the given torsion load and boundary conditions. Check the convergence of your analysis. Step 1: Using Pro/ENGINEER, create a base feature as shown in the Figure below. It is done by extruding both sides the section shown with 2 inches blind depth.
The purpose of this chapter is to outline a comprehensive framework for ﬁnancial statement analysis. Because ﬁnancial statements provide the most widely available data on public corporations’ economic activities, investors and other stakeholders rely on ﬁnancial reports to assess the plans and performance of ﬁrms and corporate managers. A variety of questions can be addressed by business analysis using ﬁnancial statements, as shown in the following examples: • A security analyst may be interested in asking: “How well is the firm I am following performing?...

Using GIS to create descriptive models of the world
--representations of reality as it exists.
Using GIS to answer a question or test an hypothesis.
Often involves creating a new conceptual output layer, (or table or chart),
the values of which are some transformation of the values in the
descriptive input layer.
--e.g. buffer or slope or aspect layers
