Non acceptance of technology may result in serious damages to organizations. For example, non-acceptance of simulation technology cost Merrill Lynch Bank over $50 billion in 2008, while statistics in 2 separate studies showed that non acceptance of technology was responsible for a 57% decrease in performance level for physicians practicing in public tertiary hospitals in Hong Kong, and a 39% decrease in productivity for hotel workers in Seoul, Korea. The problem addressed in this research was non acceptance of simulation technology by project managers. This research investigated the correlation among personal innovativeness, organizational innovativeness, perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, and intention to use simulation techniques by members of the Project Management Institute (PMI). The theory of reasoned action (TRA) and the technology acceptance model (TAM) served as theoretical foundations for the study. Data were obtained from a random sample of the PMI membership. Regression analysis was used to address research questions. Results indicate significant correlations of moderate strength among usefulness, innovativeness, ease of use, and intention to use simulation.

Food Waste and Recycling in Qatar - a study on ...
49,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The problem this research identified was the unavailability of data and information much needed for policy recommendation addressing recycling of different materials, including Food Waste, in the hotel industry in Qatar. This research study was set up to primarily achieve a threefold goal. First, explore the current practices within the Hotel Industry in Qatar regarding recycling of waste materials including food. The survey was followed by in depth interviews that took place during the months of June, July and August of 2015. Second, search and retrieve all related and available (i.e. as of December 2015) national strategies, rules, laws and policies that are regulating or in position to play a guiding role to waste management in Qatar. Third, examine the effect of awareness on Food Waste reduction. To achieve this goal, the full population of open and operating hotels was surveyed followed by in-depth interviews and an experiment that measured the effect of awareness on Food Waste reduction in one hotel during the month of Ramadan 2015.

Lost opportunities in restaurant revenue manage...
69,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Since, in other industries, revenue management has proven to result in higher productivity and profitability, it is much wanted in the restaurant industry. Therefore, the idea of this research study is to find out "How is Restaurant Revenue Management currently managed in full-service restaurants and what Restaurant Revenue Management developments are expected to be put into practise within the upcoming 1 to 3 years?". Regarding the short-term future, no major changes are expected, only the today's techniques might evolve. New tools and techniques will be introduced later, but depend on the direction that service will go. If RRM becomes more transactional, the restaurant industry will look more like the hotel industry, which includes a standardized service with the emphasis on tools that collect and analyse data automatically. On the contrary, if service becomes more personalized, it will be all about emotional engagement with a greater emphasis on loyalty to optimize revenue.

Semantic Mashups
106,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mashups are mostly lightweight Web applications that offer new functionalities by combining, aggregating and transforming resources and services available on the Web. Popular examples include a map in their main offer, for instance for real estate, hotel recommendations, or navigation tools. Mashups may contain and mix client-side and server-side activity. Obviously, understanding the incoming resources (services, statistical figures, text, videos, etc.) is a precondition for optimally combining them, so that there is always some undercover semantics being used. By using semantic annotations, neutral mashups permute into the branded type of semantic mashups. Further and deeper semantic processing such as reasoning is the next step. The chapters of this book reflect the diversity of real-life semantic mashups. Two overview chapters take the reader to the environments where mashups are at home and review the regulations (standards, guidelines etc.) mashups are based on and confronted with. Chapters focusing on DBpedia, search engines and the Web of Things inspect the main Web surroundings of mashups. While mashups upgrading search queries may be nearer to the everyday experience of readers, mashups using DBpedia input and sensor data from the real world lead to important new and therefore less known developments. Finally, the diversity of mashups is tracked through a few application areas: mathematical knowledge, speech, crisis and disaster management, recommendations (for games), inner-city information, and tourism.Participants of the AI Mashup Challenge wrote all the chapters of this book. The authors were writing for their current and future colleagues researchers and developers all over the Web who integrate mashup functionalities into their thinking and possibly into their applications.
