Influence of Modern Process Performance Indicators on Corporate Performance — the Empirical Study

internal processes should be determined in a way that enables to monitor the fulfilment of corporate key result indicators or strategic key success factors. This is the reason why the literature review of the article focused on this part of the business process measurement. Modern management approaches require using modern methods and indicators for performance evaluation. The interconnection between process performance measurement and corporate performance evaluation has not been addressed in scientific publications. Most of the scientific works deal with corporate

Assessment of Selected Technical Parameters of Soya Seeds Oil Pressing Process

Abstract

The objective of the paper was to determine the impact of the value of the oil pressing pressure with the cold pressing method in a screw press on the pressing course and performance. Varied values of pressure were obtained through the use of three replaceable attachments of the pressing unit with a varied diameter of the outlet conduit (ф1=2 mm, ф2=4 mm and ф3=6 mm). The soya oil pressing process performance was determined in relation to the applied attachment and the soya cultivar. Seeds of 7 Polish non-genetically modified soya cultivars constituted research material. It was proved that both variable pressure values and the used soya cultivars have impact on the pressing performance. Based on the analysis of the obtained research results it was proved that varied technical parameters and soya cultivars influence both the process performance and the remaining parameters and pressing conditions.

Employee engagement and performance: a systematic literature review

can be defined as work activity and its dynamics but also as a measurable work outcome [ Roe, 1999 ]. Furthermore, it can be considered on individual, group, or organizational level, which is reflected in specific goals that correspond with each level [ Roe, 1999 ]. Based on this description, six main categories, considering the type and level of performance, have been created: process performance on the individual level, process performance on the team level, process performance on the organizational level, outcome performance on the individual level, outcome

The effect of changes in depth of cut and cutting speed of CNC toolpaths on turning process performance

Abstract

In this article, a novel approach to computer optimization of CNC toolpaths by adjustment of cutting speed vcand depth of cut apis presented. Available software works by the principle of adjusting feed rate on the basis of calculations and numerical simulation of the machining process. The authors wish to expand upon this approach by proposing toolpath optimization by altering two other basic process parameters. Intricacies and problems related totheadjustment of apand vcwere explained in the introductory part. Simulation of different variant of the same turning process with different parameter values were conducted to evaluate the effect of changes in depth of cut and cutting speed on process performance. Obtained results were investigated on the account of cutting force and tool life. The authors have found that depth of cut substantially affects cutting force, while the effect of cutting speed on it is minimal. An increase in both depth of cut and cutting speed affects tool life negatively, although the impact of cutting speed is much more severe. An increase in depth of cut allows for a more significant reduction of machining time, while affecting tool life less negatively. On the other hand, the adjustment of cutting speed helpsto reduce machining time without increasing cutting force component values and spindle load.

Innovative Performance Measurement: an Integrative Perspective of Stakeholder's View

Abstract

Business Process Management (BPM) has been increasingly focused as an holistic approach to manage organizations for better organizational effectiveness. BPM involves the use of innovative performance measurement systems to follow up, coordinate, control and improve processes and overall business efficacy and efficiency. In this paper we propose a global holistic perspective of integrated information, combining the view of all stakeholders and both qualitative and quantitative information, as a basic prerequisite for quality of information for better decision making. The paper includes findings from an empirical case study of measuring Parkinson's Disease Neurosurgery process, including stakeholder's view with an integrative perspective.

Controlling process performance indicators. Results of empirical and theoretical research

Summary

The article sheds light on the issue of controlling performance measurement on the basis of the available literature and empirical research conducted by the author. Sample indicators have been provided, which can be used to confirm the efficiency of using controlling in a company as well as to determine the steps of its improvement and development.

Social Business Process Management: Croatian IT Company Case Study

Abstract

Background: Social business process management is an integration of social software into the business process management (BPM). Its main goal is to overcome the limitations of classical BPM by applying social software principles within the BPM lifecycle. Since BPM is a holistic discipline it is important to also include cultural and social aspects into BPM studies. Objectives: The main aim of this paper is to examine the link between organizational culture, social software usage and BPM maturity in the observed company. Methods/Approach: A case study methodology has been used for this study. An interview has been conducted in combination with a survey approach. Results: Results of the research revealed a high usage of social BPM within the observed company in combination with a high level of BPM maturity and a clan organizational culture. Conclusions: The observed IT company has knowledge intensive processes and uses social BPM to deal with the process change and optimization. The clan culture is, by its characteristics, a favourable organizational culture for social BPM.
