Besides the application of traditional methods in business, successful economic development and market environment development also require the application of new modern methods adapted to contemporary market needs. One modern approach is based on corporate performance evaluation by measuring the performance of internal processes ( Sujová, 2013 ). Business processes are objects of the process approach

The application of the responsibility and authority as a necessary element of competences in the management process enables to interlink the organisation’s requirements and the employee’s opportunities in a way that permits their development in mutual harmony and to ensure the organisation’s competitiveness (Königová & Hron, 2012; Szczepańska-Woszczyna et al., 2015 ). The competency-based approach in Performance Management System (PMS) focuses on the behaviour and

Reduction of defects in the lapping process of the silicon wafer manufacturing: the Six Sigma application

conformance to specifications; which was dominant in the 20th century. It means that an outcome must not deviate from the specifications set by an organisation, and any deviations are considered as lowering the quality ( Reeves & Bednar, 1994 ). Such conformance measures have been argued to increase the internal efficiency of the process and sale prices over time ( Topalovic, 2015 ). Later, as the focus shifted from manufacturers to customers, a new definition of “quality” emerged, i.e. meeting or exceeding customer expectations. Anything that does not satisfy the customer

Increase the Safety of Road Traffic Accidents by Applying Clustering


In terms of continual increase of number of traffic accidents and alarming trend of increasing number of traffic accidents with catastrophic consequences for human life and health, it is necessary to actively research and develop methods to combat these trends. One of the measures is the implementation of advanced information systems in existing traffic environment. Accidents clusters, as databases of traffic accidents, introduce a new dimension in traffic systems in the form of experience, providing information on current accidents and the ones that have previously occurred in a given period. This paper proposes a new approach to predictive management of traffic processes, based on the collection of data in real time and is based on accidents clusters. The modern traffic information services collects road traffic status data from a wide variety of traffic sensing systems using modern ICT technologies, creating the most accurate road traffic situation awareness achieved so far. Road traffic situation awareness enhanced by accident clusters' data can be visualized and distributed in various ways (including the forms of dynamic heat maps) and on various information platforms, suiting the requirements of the end-users. Accent is placed on their significant features that are based on additional knowledge about existing traffic processes and distribution of important traffic information in order to prevent and reduce traffic accidents.
