Needs assessment is an important step in the performance improvement business. It precedes the design and development of any human resource development (HRD) or human performance technology (HPT) initiative. Needs assessment is a process for examining and framing peoplerelated problems and performance improvement opportunities. It might be initiated in response to a problem or opportunity, or it might be used in ongoing learning or performance improvement efforts.

The feature of polyimides and other heterocyclic polymers are now well-established and used for long term temperature durability in the range of 250 - 350'C. This book will review synthesis, mechanisms, ultimate properties, physico-chemical properties, processing and applications of such high performance materials needed in advanced technologies. It presents interdisciplinary papers on the state of knowledge of each topic under consideration through a combination of overviews and original unpublished research.
Oracle Database Performance Tuning Guide is an aid for people responsible for the
operation, maintenance, and performance of Oracle. This book describes detailed
ways to enhance Oracle performance by writing and tuning SQL properly, using
performance tools, and optimizing instance performance. It also explains how to
create an initial database for good performance and includes performance-related
reference information. This book could be useful for database administrators,
application designers, and programmers.
The chapter commences by reviewing the properties of the broad classes of materials used in film coating, polymers, plasticizers, pigments and solvents (or vehicles). An initial consideration of the polymers shows that while processing is most commonly performed using these materials in solution, there are systems which utilize polymers in suspension in water. The mechanism of coalescence and film formation for these types of materials are discussed.
This book is about the structure and function of computers. Its purpose is to present, as
clearly and completely as possible, the nature and characteristics of modern-day computers.
This task is a challenging one for two reasons.
First, there is a tremendous variety of products, from single-chip microcomputers
costing a few dollars to supercomputers costing tens of millions of dollars, that can
rightly claim the name computer.Variety is exhibited not only in cost, but also in size,
performance, and application.
This book covers everything you need to know to pass the OCP: Oracle8i
Performance and Tuning and OCP: Oracle8i Network Administration
exams. The first part of the book covers the most critical areas of database
performance tuning and how to follow and implement Oracle’s recommended
tuning methodology. The second part covers the topics of network
administration including configuring the necessary client and server components
of an Oracle network and helps you develop an understanding of the
Oracle 8i Net8 architecture....
This IBM® Redbook is primarily intended for use by IBM Clients and IBM
Business Partners. In it we discuss and demonstrate technology, architectures,
techniques, and product capabilities for business performance management
BPM is a relatively new and evolving initiative that brings together a number of
technologies to monitor and manage the attainment of business measurements
and goals. However, this redbook is not intended to be a comprehensive treatise
on BPM, but more of an introduction to help you understand it and get started
with your implementation....
Performance has been an important issue with Java™ since the first version hit the Web years ago.
Making those first interpreted programs run fast enough was a huge challenge for many developers.
Since then, Java performance has improved enormously, and any Java program can now be made to
run fast enough provided you avoid the main performance pitfalls.
This book provides all the details a developer needs to performance-tune any type of Java program.
This section describes the RAC documentation set. This book, the Oracle Real
Application Clusters Deployment and Performance Guide, highlights the main deployment
topics for RAC by briefly describing Cluster Ready Services (CRS), storage, database
creation, and services deployment in RAC. Design and deployment topics in this book
describe service topologies and workload management in RAC.
Grid Networks describes the convergence of advanced networking technologies and Grid technologies, with special focus on their symbiotic relationship and the resulting new opportunities. Grid technology is applicable to many implementations, Computational Grids, Data Grids, Service Grids, and Instrumentation Grids.
The authors cover a breadth of topics including recent research, featuring both theoretical concepts and empirical results. Beginning with an overview of Grid technologies, an analysis of distinguishing use cases and architectural attributes, and emerging standards.
Advances in sensor technology are revolutionizing the way remotely sensed data are
collected, managed, and analyzed. The incorporation of latest-generation sensors to
airborne and satellite platforms is currently producing a nearly continual stream of
high-dimensional data, and this explosion in the amount of collected information
has rapidly created new processing challenges.
Performance is frequently one of the last things on peoples’ minds when they’re developing a system.
Unfortunately, that means it usually becomes the biggest problem after that system goes to production. You can’t
simply rely on getting a phone call that tells you that procedure X on database Y that runs on server Z is running
slow. You have to have a mechanism in place to find this information for yourself. You also can’t work off the
general word slow.
he goal is to provide tools for leaders to improve
both the environmental performance and overall competiveness by reducing
materials, energy and water utilization. Section 5 are papers related to sustainable
environment: all aspects of ecosystem for sustainable development, ecological
assessment and sustainability for the environment.
This book discusses an emerging approach to
architecture in which building performance is a
guiding design principle. This architecture places
broadly defined performance above, or on a par
with, form-making; it utilizes digital technologies of
quantitative and qualitative performance-based
simulation to offer a comprehensive new approach
to the design of the built environment.
The employer-employee Relationship: A phenomenological Study of Retention and the Information Technology Worker In University of California data, I find evidence that observable background
characteristicsparticularly those describing the composition of the school, rather than the
individuals own backgroundare strong predictors of both SAT scores and collegiate
performance, and that much of the SATs apparent predictive power derives from its
association with these background characteristics.
On a warm autumn day in 1962, a young chief executive stood before a large assembly and introduced a long-term, daring mission for his enterprise. It was both terrifying and inspiring. To many, successfully completing the mission seemed an impossible task..Leveraging Technology to Execute Winning Strategies
THE IMPACT OF LOGISTICS STRATEGY AND LOGISTICS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROCESSES ON SERVICE PERFORMANCE If parents select schools for effectiveness, wealthy parents
should be better able to obtain effective schools in markets where decentralized governance
facilitates the choice of schools through residential location, and student performance should
be more tightly associated with peer characteristics in these markets.
Modified release coatings
John E.Hogan SUMMARY Relevant aspects of the composition and performance of modified release coatings are considered in this chapter. Initially, the basic characteristics of multiparticulate systems are described and comparisons are made with the performance of whole tablets intended for modified release. The properties and effects of the polymers and plasticizers which are used in modified release coatings are illustrated with examples from the literature. This further develops the basic treatment of these materials provided in Chapter 2.
