Authors:
Hassan Jafari
Abstract:
The present study has been performed at three stages aiming at identifying and prioritizing Executive strategies to decrease the Goods and Containers dwell time in the Iranian seaports. Firstly, factors involving in the Goods and Containers dwell time were dealt with in a review of the literature. Secondly, Executive strategies to decrease the Goods and Containers dwell time were formalized employing Delphi method. Thirdly, the strategies, formalized at the second stage, were prioritized by use of Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and MAPPAC in terms of the practicability, implementation costs, time needed, and the efficacy in reducing Goods and Containers dwell time. The eventual results of the MAPPAC method indicate the priority of these strategies as following: using electronic systems, reducing the paperwork and parallel processes in cargo clearance, employing road and rail intermodal transport, round-the-clock customs operation, enhancing coordination and collaboration among organizations involved in the issuance of cargo clearance.

K.K.DESHMUKH; POONAM ASWANI
Abstract:
The increasing number of women in the labor market and the rise in duel career couples has prompted many organizations to introduce programsthat help their employees balance their work and personal lives. Positive employee's perceptions of such initiatives have tended to be assumed rather than demonstrated. This study examines how a proposal for a work life balance program is actually viewed by womenemployees.Based on survey data from 300 women employees in a shopping centre in Pune city, the study finds evidence of a range of perceptions towards childcare welfare programs provided by their employers. The perceptions of women employees are influenced by various criteria such as:
Women's existing and potential constraints in managing work and childcare; Benefits women employees receive from child care welfare programs; Attitude towards their employer. Perceptions towards the provision of child care welfare programs are particularly positive when these programs help to resolve their difficulties of balancing work and childcare.

Individual saving and investment has always been a stimulus for the economic growth of the country. It has catalyzed the capital formation and has accelerated the productive growth. Today most of the developed economies are witnessing a declining saving and investment pattern but India is still on a steady pace of investment and savings.
An investment refers to the commitment of funds at present, in anticipation of some positive rate of return in future. Today the gamut of investment is indeed wide. The individual investor has a wide array of options for investments, right from a secured debt oriented instrument to a high-risk-prone equity instrument.
In a nutshell, an individual investor has a platter full of investment avenues.  The understanding of common man's investment is just not significant from the perspective of the individual investor but is also significant for the financial institutions that need to have a fair understanding of the behavior and attitudes of these investors and factors affecting these decisions.
This study has been undertaken to analyze the investment pattern of a common man.  The focus is on the factor which affects their decision making. An attempt has been made to study the demographics and psychographics of the investor considering the parameters like age, gender and income groups and also some psychological parameters that will attract the investor towards that particular investment.

A STATIC 3D MODELING OF HYDROCARBONIC RESERVOIR WITH THE HELP OF RMS CASE study: THE SOUTH EAST ANTICLINE OF KHUZESTAN IRAN
Authors:
Hamid Reza Samadi, Mohammad Hadi Salehi
Abstract:
The use of optimization from reservoirs of hydrocarbon in the world is considered as a serious aim, and the first step in this direction is reservoir description. Reservoir modeling performs to recognize more the geometry of oil traps and reservoir management. Generally, this technique is an essential part of oil industry in the fields of study and development processes. Softwares are planning for this aim, can do process of modeling using geostatistic technique, such as RMS. To provide the reservoir 3D structural and petrophysical modeling using RMS software, petrophysical and UGC maps were used together. The results showed that the Mansuri is indicating elongate structure, symmetric form and its trend same as Zagros. After making the 3D griding and petrophysical modeling, distribution maps of petrophysical properties such as porosity, water saturation and N/G were constructed. These evidences suggested that maximum porosity was detected in the eastern part of field, which is more than western  part,  and  the zones  1,2  &  3  are  showing the  best  reservoir quality in  view  of petroleum  potential.  By  comparing  of  the  reservoir  zones,  it  is  resulted  that  zone  2  is containing more initial oil (65.5%) ratio volume.

Abstract:
Assembly flow shop scheduling problem is one of the important problems in industry. In the most research in this case imagine the machines are available all of the time. In this paper we considered the machines are not available and for maintenance are out of available. In the otherwise the most assembly flow shop problem have one object, however in this paper we present a multi-objective problem. The objectives are: Minimize Total weighted flow time and sum of weighted earliness and tardiness. We provide 2 meta-heuristic algorithm, Genetic Algorithm (GA) & Simulated Annealing (SA), for solve. The results represent for small problem (number of job.30), SA is better algorithm and for large example, GA has better performance.

Cp violation in the MSSM and role of the KM phase
Authors:
Mohammad Mazhari; Mehdi Golshani
Abstract:
Another aspect of SM extensions, namely non-standard CP violation, is also essential for baryogenesis scenarios.SM extensions, in particular, an extended non-gauge sector; that is to say, a richer set of Yukawa and Higgs-boson self-interactions than in the SM. It is these interactions that break, in general, CP invariance. Thus, in SM extensions additional sources of CP violation besides the KM phase are usually present. In the minimal super symmetric extension (MSSM) of the Standard Model CP violating phases can appear, apart from the complex Yukawa interactions of the quarks yielding a non-zero KM phase.

Abstract:
The wide variety of the eye diseases can be diagnosed by the Scheimpflug method. The method is used to take images from eye’s entire meridian. However the imaging method suffers from geometrical and optical distortion which decreased the accuracy of the eye’s diagnosis. The purpose of this manuscript is to develop algorithms for the optical and geometrical distortion correction of the commercial Scheimpflug camera Pentacam, Oculus. To obtain the camera nodal points, the algorithm in Matlab based on least-mean square procedure was written. Once the nodal points were obtained, the correction distortion algorithms were applied on Scheimpflug images of an artificial eye with known dimensions.

Abstract:
Traditionally in assembly lines, the stations are arranged consecutively along a straight line and tasks are assigned to the stations while moving forward through a precedence network. However recently as a consequence of using just in time principles, many lines are arranged in a U shaped manner. U shaped line configuration provides more flexibility in assigning tasks to the stations. Therefore, this configuration results in more balanced and shorter lines.
