Covers the priorities and challenges facing organisations who are increasingly focused on 'knowledge work'; it is written from a human relations - rather than a technological - perspective. It uses real cases, backed up by evidence and analysis from a detailed study into strategic knowledge based working (KBW). The content of the book draws on two chief sources: the author's own expertise in KBW developed over five years of blue chip KBW consultancy, and the results of a previously unpublished five year study. The book offers clear, step-by-step guidance to executives who need to understand, deploy and implement KBW. Outlines the key challenges for KBW at all organisational levels Self assessment questions at the end of each of the four chapters Interchapter case studies for in depth teaching/understanding
Having seen the significant challenges faced in delivering knowledge- based working, we need to consider the key factors that make success more likely, and
those that will only cause increased problems. My most recent research involved

The three volumes IFIP AICT 438, 439, and 440 constitute the refereed proceedings of the International IFIP WG 5.7 Conference on Advances in Production Management Systems, APMS 2014, held in Ajaccio, France, in September 2014. The 233 revised full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 271 submissions. They are organized in 6 parts: knowledge discovery and sharing; knowledge-based planning and scheduling; knowledge-based sustainability; knowledge-based services; knowledge-based performance improvement, and case studies.

This thorough, practical work describes the entire process of building a knowledge-based application--from start to completion, from concept to operation--with clear, detailed treatments of planning, designing, building, and testing. Also discusses recent insights into knowledge representation, including previously unpublished information. Describes the full scope of knowledge representations available, such as frame-based, multiple context, and model-based representations, pointing out the attributes and drawback of each so that readers may make appropriate choices that serve their individual needs.

The comprehension of a traffic situation plays a major role in driving a vehicle. Interpretable information forms a basis for future projection, decision making and action performing, such as navigating, maneuvering and driving control. Michael Huelsen provides an ontology-based generic traffic situation description capable of supplying various advanced driver assistance systems with relevant information about the current traffic situation of a vehicle and its environment. These systems are enabled to perform reasonable actions and approach visionary goals such as injury and accident free driving, substantial assistance in arbitrary situations up to even autonomous driving.

This concise yet highly informative title provides a unique treatment of the many benefits, as well as the potential dangers, of the new advice-giving computer systems used in many major institutions. The volume gives readers authoritative coverage of the applications and social implications of such knowledge-based systems, and includes a useful account that details how these powerful systems function. Recommendations for the development and marketing of advanced information technology are set forth, with complete analyses that will be of interest to everyone who works with, or is concerned about, this new technology.

Reactive scheduling is concerned with monitoring and controlling the execution of predictive schedules and making any changes required to bring them in line with unanticipated events or disturbances happening in real time. Whilst predictive scheduling has been a focus of research for many years, it is only recently that explicit attention has been given to the specific problems of reactive scheduling and the relationship between the two.This publication explores the scope and status of both existing and potential approaches to reactive scheduling. Concentration is centred on knowledge-based approaches as the importance of domain knowledge, whether stored in computers or in the brains of experienced schedulers, is becoming increasingly apparent. Contributions examine a variety of approaches ranging from reactive scheduling decision support frameworks in which the knowledge comes mainly from the human, through to completely new approaches to automated reactive scheduling such as neural networks.The book will be of particular interest to researchers, students and engineers involved in the manufacturing and software development industries. In addition to providing a significant reference volume, it also aims to stimulate increased discussion in this emerging field.

ESCWA published a study on increasing productivity of small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) and enhancing their competitiveness through clusters and networking. This study was undertaken as part of an ESCWA initiative to help SMEs in the garment-manufacturing business in Lebanon to achieve greater competitiveness. Garment manufacture was chosen for the study because it plays an important part in development and economic growth in ESCWA member countries, and represents a major source for labor in these countries.--Publisher's description.

Social Work: A Profession of Many Faces, now in its ninth edition, has stood the test of time as an introduction to the profession of social work. This book includes historical material on the emergence of social work as a profession, the areas and groups where human services are provided, and career opportunities for social workers today. The book reflects up-to-date empirical data about where social workers are employed, what positions they hold, what personal characteristics they bring to their practice, and the competencies required to perform their work. The main focus of the text is on the various groups (most of them disenfranchised), to whom social workers provide services, including children, older adults, women, disabled persons, and members of minority racial and ethnic groups. A new chapter entitled "Social Work Throughout the World" helps readers gain a broader understanding of how the profession of social work has evolved in different parts of the world. For anyone interested in Social Work.

Part One of the book sets the scene. The first chapter discusses the reasons why computerisation has been so unsuccessful in the past and then explores a range of issues which need to be addressed in the future if computerisation is to be successful. Chapter Two looks at personal responses to computerisation amongst social workers and investigates different responses from social work agencies. Part Two deals with conceptual, organisational and policy issues. Chapter Three tackles the issues of identity and education: What is IT? What is social work? And what is the relationship between them? Chapter Four briefly dips into organisational theory and then explores the difficulties and contradictions of computerising a hybrid, part rational, part natural systems organisational structure. Policy issues are explored in Chapter Five. Part Three is explicitly practical. Chapter Six deals with the implementation of information technology in the social services: management issues; staff involvement; resource requirements; and information needs. Finally, Chapter Seven looks at IT in action in the social services, explicitly exploring IT innovations of direct use to social work practice which are up and running and of demonstrable benefit.
