Unboxing news automation
Exploring imagined affordances of automation in news journalism

“raise the pulse”; in fact, automated text can become “impossibly boring” if media organizations become gripped by a “trance” of automation and focus only on efficiency instead of building services that fascinate, a warning heeded by participant G. Furthermore, participant L suggested several other, more interesting, forms of automation than just news bulletins “about ice hockey”: I’m fascinated by the idea connected to different ways of weeding, combing, refining, distributing the material and how this material could, for example, be transformed into different forms

How streaming services make cinema more important
Lessons from Norway

low value created per SVOD viewer. In most cases, it will not benefit from the scale economy opportunities offered by global SVOD services. To support local films, policy makers and industry players may therefore achieve the greatest efficiency by concentrating on cinema and EST/TVOD services, market channels that seem to fit the film format and business models better. This may, however, involve a paradoxical policy trade-off between competing objectives of availability and economies. The dramatic drop in DVD/Bluray revenues illustrates the market risk of being

Evaluation of the Level of Work Safety, Advancement and Efficiency of the Use of Machines and Devices on Labelling and Packaging Line and an Attempt to Compare the Results Using the Modified Mckinsey Matrix

Abstract

The article presents the results of the assessment of the level of work safety, the level of modernity and the efficiency of the use of machines on the labelling and packaging line. The assessment of the level of occupational safety was made on the basis of an interview conducted with machine operators, by direct observation and analysis of historical data. The basis for assessing the level of modernity was the ABC technology method and the 5-stage Parker scale, while the OEE indicator was used to assess the level of efficiency of the use. An assessment of the level of safety, modernity, efficiency and other aspects such as cleanliness, completeness, maintenance, improvements for machines in the line with the use a scale of 0-5 was included and next, based on the validity index, the overall result was calculated. Modified McKinsey matrix was used to evaluate these factors and comparison the obtained results with other lines in the company. As a result of the conducted analyzes, it was pointed out that it is necessary to take improvement measures in the area of the worst-assessed factors.

Ecological Efficiency Assessment Model for Environmental Safety Management of Wind Power Plant

Abstract

This study focuses on the evaluation of the benefits and ecological costs that occur in the life cycle of a wind power plant. The study constitutes an attempt to expand upon previously conducted research on the analysis of costs and benefits in the stages of production, operation and post-consumer management of wind turbines. The aim of the study adopted research methodology, analysis and assessment of the benefits and environmental impacts of the Vestas V90/105m 2 MW wind turbine throughout its life cycle. Original assessment indicators of the benefits and ecological costs occurring throughout a wind power plant’s life cycle for environmental safety management, were proposed and verified.

Diagnosis in New Technological Line for Steel Fiber Production for Process Safety

Abstract

Theoretical and experimental studies of new technology and equipment on the fulfilled cables and ropes of handling equipment are provided for diagnosis of main process. The result of the safe processing is steel fiber which is used further for production of a steel-fiber reinforced concrete. The research offered a number of essentially new diagnose methods which considerably increases engineering procedures of fiber production from waste.
