The Dubai Metro, the World’s Longest Fully Automated Metro Network

Tr a n s p o r ta t i o n S y s t e m s D i v i s i o n

The Dubai Metro infrastructure was designed to support economic growth in Dubai, and is the first urban railway in the Gulf States. Dubai has established its position as a leading hub for finance, logistics, and tourism in the Middle East. During this process, chronic traffic congestion became a serious social issue, stemming from the population increase that ensued from rapid economic growth. In order to alleviate traffic congestion, the Dubai Government decided an urban railway would be constructed. In 2004, the Dubai government asked for international tenders for the Dubai Metro Project and the following year placed an order with the Dubai Rapid Link Consortium (DURL), a five-company consortium lead by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), with three other Japanese companies and one from Turkey. DURL was responsible for delivering a fully automated driverless railway system including all related engineering and construction. The Civil Works including the design, engineering and construction of tunnels, elevated viaducts, and station buildings and depots were performed by our civil works partner, a joint venture consisting of Obayashi Corporation, Kajima Corporation, and the Turkish firm Yapi Merkezi. MHI, in collaboration with Mitsubishi Corporation, was responsible for the design, manufacture, integration, construction and delivery of all railway systems including railcars, the automatic driverless control system, communications, operation control and SCADA systems, automatic fare collection, platform screen doors, depot equipment and facilities, the power distribution system and substation equipment, and the track facilities.

...A Study on Waiting Line Management in Indian Retail Sector Project Title: - To study the effectiveness of “Waiting Line Management” of two supermarkets. Introduction:- Waiting Line Management- Understanding waiting lines or queues and learning how to manage them is one of the most important areas in operation management. We wait in line every day, from driving to work to checking out at the supermarket.

...Executive Summary Over the last few years, the capital market of Bangladesh has witnessed a haughty growth which is not in line of development in the real sector of the economy. Although, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of Bangladesh has tried to correct the irregular behavior observed in the market, very often it is argued that lack of proper and firm decisions from the regulator’s side has contributed to make the market more unstable rather than to reduce it. The paper attempts to identify the inter relationship between the capital market and money market. The Capital Market of Bangladesh is passing tough times since December 2010 as high volatility is eroding the capital of Thousands of Investors that might turn into social instability. This fall is caused by many factors that I tried to identify and tried to link up between causal factors of market crash and regulatory failure and also tried to find out the inter-relationship between capital market and money market. Primary issue related problems was faulty listing methods and IPO overpricing, few numbers of new listings, revaluating assets before company listing, high premium in issuance of right share/Repeat IPO etc. while secondary market related problems was stock splits and stock price manipulations through block trading, circular trading and insider trading. Investor’s greed and irrational behavior played a big rule to make the stock prices sky rocking as they were crazy to buy shares without......

He assumes that all returns follow a normal distribution with the following means and standard deviations. Investment Class | Mean | Standard Dev. | Fixed Income/Annuities | 8.31% | 0.60% | Cash | 7.73% | 0.80% | US Treasury Bonds | 8.80% | 5.00% | US Investment Corp Bonds | 9.33% | 7.00% | Foreign Government Bonds | 10.95% | 10.00% | Domestic Large Cap Stocks | 12.71% | 17.30% | International Equities | 14.02% | 19.00% | Domestic Mid Cap Stocks | 11.64% | 18.19% | Domestic Small Cap Stocks | 15.93% | 23.00% | For each investment class we found the probability of a loss in the investment for a return of less than zero. We also found the probability of a return greater than 5%, between -5% and 5%, and lower than 15%. In finding these probabilities, we were able to find which investment classes were more profitable for John Raymond and the correlations of the different investment classes. We grouped the investment classes into two groups into compare the correlation. The first group consisted of: fixed income/annuities, US treasury bonds, US investment corporate bonds, and foreign government bonds. The second group consisted of: domestic large cap stocks, domestic mid cap stocks, domestic small cap stocks, and international equities.

...>cases Ramada Demonstates Its Personal Best® >Abstract This case describes syndicated research in the hospitality industry that revealed trends in customer satisfaction and Ramada’s proprietary research leading to the development of the Personal Best™ employee hiring, training and motivation program. www.ramada.com >The Scenario In 1996 the latest D. K. Shifflet survey of customer satisfaction in the hospitality industry showed mid-tier hotels continuing their downward trend in perceived customer service, reflected by more and more respondents giving ratings on customer service in the 7 or lower range on Shifflet’s 10-point scale. While Ramada’s satisfaction rates held steady, “It was only a matter of time before we experienced the problem,” says Tim Pigsley, director of operations for Ramada Franchise Systems (RFS). Shifflet research highlighted three critical areas for study that could influence customer satisfaction: hiring (finding the best people to deliver Ramada’s brand of exceptional service), training (giving employees the tools to deliver exceptional service), and motivation (providing the impetus for Ramada employees to deliver exceptional service). Unlike some of its competitors, RFS is a totally franchised system. In such an environment, not only must headquarters contend with the variable human factor of all service operations, but additionally, RFS must contend with differing “exceptional service” standards among owners of the nearly 900 Ramada......

...INTRODUCTION As per an article on the website , www.venturecapitalresources.com , named “Past and Present of Capital Market” it has been mentioned that the Indian stock markets are one of the oldest in Asia. Its history dates back to nearly 200 years ago. The earliest records of security dealings in India are meager and obscure. By 1830's business on corporate stocks and shares in Bank and Cotton presses took place in Bombay. Though the trading list was broader in 1839, there were only few brokers recognized by banks and merchants during 1840 and 1850. The 1850's witnessed a rapid development of commercial enterprise and brokerage business attracted many men into the field and by 1860 the number of brokers increased into 60. In 1860-61 the American Civil War broke out and cotton supply from United States to Europe was stopped; thus, the 'Share Mania' in India begun. The number of brokers increased to about 200 to 250. However, at the end of the American Civil War, in 1865, a disastrous slump began (for example, Bank of Bombay Share which had touched Rs 2850 could only be sold at Rs. 87). At the end of the American Civil War, the brokers who thrived out of Civil War in 1874, found a place in a street (now appropriately called as Dalal Street) where they would conveniently assemble and transact business. In 1887, they formally established in Bombay, the "Native Share and Stock Brokers' Association" (which is alternatively known as “The Stock Exchange“). Trading was at that......

...BRM/353 Apple iPad Air Promoted and proposed by Apple Inc., the iPad is and iOS operated line of tablet computers. The first tablet computer designed by Apple was the Newton MessagePad 100, which was announced in 1993. Apple had also established a sample PowerBook Duo based tablet, which was known as the PenLite, but chose not to retail it to prevent having an effect on the MessagePad sales. In 2007, Apple decided to re-enter the mobile-computing markets and introduced the iPhone. The iPhone is smaller in size than the iPad and features a mobile phone and a camera while also initiating the finger-sensitive multi-touch touchscreen of Apple's iOS mobile working structure. The release of the iPad had been assumed for numerous years by the end of 2009. Many rumors spoke mainly about “Apple’s tablet” and suggested names such as the iTablet. In January of 2010, Steve Jobs introduced the iPad at an Apple press conference in San Francisco (Ritchie, R. 2014, October 6). The first Apple iPad was released in April of 2010. The use of the iPad is constructed throughout the device's wide range of a touch screen, which includes a simulated keyboard. The iPad contains already installed Wi-Fi and on certain styles, a cellular connection. On a financial conference call in October of 2010, Steve Jobs stated that Apple retailed more iPads than Mac computers for the fiscal quarter. Before the actual unveiling of the iPad 2, Apple retailed more than 15 million iPads that were......

By Jaffery (2009) a strong relationship exists between motivation and job performance. In view of Halverson (2005) motivation acts like oxygen for organizations and it is of huge importance especially in such business (services) where workers have direct link with consumers as in food business.

Brm Project on Sports Shoe

...1. INDUSTRY BACKGROUND The term footwear covers a vast range of products made from many different materials. Boots, shoes, sandals, slippers and clogs are made wholly or partly of rubber, synthetic and plastics materials, canvas, rope and wood. In fact, in 2007, rubber and plastics footwear made up 53% of the pie whereas leather footwear accounted for 14% only with the remaining 33% of the footwear made of textile and other types of materials. In recent years, the footwear industry has become highly globalised, with competition from countries with lower labor costs and less regulated working conditions forcing footwear manufacturers to look at restructuring and re-locating their facilities. As the World population increases and living standards improve, the demand for footwear has shot up rapidly. Over the last decade and a half, Asian countries have emerged as the most powerful destination for footwear production, with established names in the US and Europe economies having shifted their facilities (partly and wholly) to Asian countries.
