Abstract

Describes the redesign of the Clupicker, a ply separation device used in the textile industry, based on design for assembly techniques. Presents design for assembly (DFA) guidelines. Describes Boothroyd's Systematic DFA Methodology and Zorowski's PDM program, and analyses the design of the Clupicker using both of these methods. Presents and analyses a proposed redesign of the Clupicker based on DFA techniques.

Abstract

Reports research into developing the ability to sense characteristic information about fabric/machine interactions for real‐time control of the industrial sewing process. The sewing system under investigation was equipped with displacement and force transducers to measure the dynamic response of the feeding system during various modes of operation. A combination of fabric and machine factors was considered in a one‐half fractional factorial experimental design, including: fabric type, number of fabric plies, presser foot type, presser foot preload, and machine speed.

Abstract

Fully automating the apparel assembly process will require generic robotic manipulators which can be purchased as a complete unit and adapted to specific applications. A manipulator that can handle and position non‐rigid fabric parts of inexact dimension is described. The XY‐theta provides three directions of fabric positioning. Further, the manipulator can handle different sizes of a variety of styles. The aligning system is composed of three modules‐ vision, positioning and control, which exchange information and control signals via a 32‐bit bus system. This combination of modules and bus system makes the aligning system very flexible which is represented by the ability to switch the type of microcontroller or motors used. Thus, the generic system can be adapted for specific applications.

Abstract

AT the very outset of this paper it is necessary to make clear that it is not an attempt to compile an exhaustive bibliography of literature relating to special librarianship. Neither space nor time permit this. In fact, the references given can only claim to be a sample of the wealth of material on the subject and this paper is submitted in the hope that it will stimulate others to more scholarly efforts. Reference numbers throughout this paper refer to items in the ‘Select list of references to the literature of special librarianship’, section 2 onwards.

Abstract

In recent years, international management research has focused on the cognitive development of managers as increasingly important in a complex and dynamic business environment. As part of what might be called a cognitive revolution in international management research, several individual difference constructs have been introduced that promise to improve upon our ability to link culture to action beyond the study of dimensions of cultural variability and inventories of cultural competence. In this paper, I review three of these ideas: multicultural personality, global mindset, and cultural intelligence. I examine their conceptual similarities and level of development, and identify five criteria that need to be satisfied for these new ideas to have utility in international management research.

Abstract

Purpose

Hedonic price modeling (HPM) plays an important role in identifying factors affecting the price of goods or services. Many researchers have extensively used this modeling approach in their research work. However, there has been no bibliometric review that analyses the existing research, which makes use of HPM modeling. This study aims to provide a comprehensive visualized bibliometric and scientometric view of HPM usage in real estate research.

Design/methodology/approach

The Scopus database was used to collect the bibliographic data of 269 publications from 1970 to 2019. CiteSpace software was then used to analyze and visualize the data.

Findings

The results revealed a significant increase in the annual number of HPM study publications. Core authors, participating countries and representative references have been identified. Research hotspots for the HPM studies were identified.

Originality/value

While the study provides a methodological bibliometric review of HPM literature, the findings provide a very good platform for understanding the important elements of HPM usage in real estate research.

Abstract

Life studies are a rich source for further research on the role of the Afro‐American woman in society. They are especially useful to gain a better understanding of the Afro‐American experience and to show the joys, sorrows, needs, and ideals of the Afro‐American woman as she struggles from day to day.
