Identification of Barriers Towards Change and Proposal to Institutionalize Continuous Improvement Programs in Manufacturing Operations
(Universidad Alberto Hurtado. Facultad de Economía y Negocios, 2011)
Experimental evidence for the effects of a continuous improvement environment versus a mechanical environment on routines based on conscientiousness
(Routledge Journals, 2016)
This research states that a continuous improvement environment (CIE), unlike a mechanical one, may help workers to voluntarily incorporate new routines based on conscientiousness. Moreover, these routines could help humans ...
Real power losses reduction and loading margin improvement via continuation method
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2004-08-01)
This letter presents an alternative approach for reducing the total real power losses by using a continuation method. Results for two simple test systems and for the IEEE 57-bus system show that this procedure results in ...
Improving Critical Thinking and Clinical Reasoning With a Continuing Education Course
(SLACK INC, 2009)
Background: Continuing education courses related to critical thinking and clinical reasoning are needed to improve the accuracy of diagnosis. Method: This study evaluated a 4-day, 16-hour continuing education course conducted ...
GPR-signal improvement using a Synthetic Emitter Array
(Elsevier Science, 2011-05)
We discuss improvements produced by a Synthetic Emitter Array on typical GPR reflection signals. We analyze their time and amplitude fluctuations and their intensity levels with respect to the surrounding signals. We compare ...
Improved growth model for two-stage continuous cultures of Lactobacillus helveticus

Continuous use of textured insole improve plantar sensation and stride length of people with Parkinson's disease: A pilot study
Findings involving the acute benefits of textured insoles on gait in people with Parkinson's disease (PD) are still controversial. To our best acknowledge, the continuous use of textured insoles on gait in people with PD ...
