Analysis of Factors for Implementing TPM: A Study in Welded Tube Manufacturers
This study aims to identify and assess critical factors influencing on the implementation of continuous improvement projects, specifically the TPM. This research is a quali-quanti study and collects data with managers who ...
An Improved Parameterization Technique for the Continuation Power Flow
Continuation methods have been long used in P-V curve tracing due to their efficiency in the resolution of ill-conditioned cases, with close to singular Jacobian matrices, such as the maximum loading point of power systems. ...
A Variation On The Interior Point Method For Linear Programming Using The Continued Iteration
