7 Strengths and gaps of the current practice
There is both positive and negatives in the current processes within Hussmann when it comes to setting business strategy, workforce planning and applying metrics to monitor their success of the warehouse.
7.1 Hussmann Strengths
The current strengths of Hussmann include the use of a cross functional leadership team (Robbins 2012) to coordinate business strategy, having a Human resources department to coordinate the recruitment, retention and development activities (Boxall 2011) of warehouse staff. In addition to a daily communication of the IFOT metric to several stakeholders, which can be used for workforce planning in an ongoing manner as a lagging indicator.
7.2 Hussmann Weaknesses
key elements are “omitted from the indicator” and whether or not “inappropriate elements are included in the indicator.” Although content validation is an “important contribution” to measurement validity, its chief limitation is that “alone it is incomplete, for two reasons”: “first, although a necessary condition, the findings of content validation are not a sufficient for establishing validity” and second “the trade-off between parsimony and completeness that arises because indicators…
1.1What is an acid-base titration?
An acid –base titration is the determination of the concentration of an acid or base by neutralizing the acid or base with an acid or base of known concentration.
An acid-base titration is the analysis of the concentration of acids and bases; through this process an acid or base of known concentration neutralizes an acid or base of unknown concentration.
The neutralization of an acid or base in acid-base titration can be measured with either a…
Acid Base Balance Study Guide
The body’s ability to regulate and compensate for variances of the acidity or alkalinity of body fluids through mechanisms in the brain, kidneys, lungs, and buffering system.
Concept Key Terms:
• Acid: any substance that has a pH less than 7.0
• Acidosis: the condition of having too much acid build up in body fluids, below 7.35
• Alkalosis: the condition of having too much alkaline build up in body fluids, above 7.45
• Anion: a negatively charge…
The purpose of this experiment was to prepare and standardize a sodium hydroxide solution as well as determine the molar concentration in as strong acid and the percent by mass of acetic acid in vinegar. We used volumetric analysis, also known as titration, in both experiments. The average molar concentration for NaOH was 0.2749 mol/L while the average molar concentration of the acid solution was .2493 mol/L.The average percent by mass of acetic acid in vinegar was found to be 12.3 %…
In cellular respiration glucose molecules are broken down through these reactions in order to produce ATP. The equation for cellular respiration is as followed: 6O2 + C6H12O6 ---> 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy. The hypothesis was, while CO2 is being given off during respiration, it can be re-utilized during photosynthesis. For this experiment the thought was, if a sealed test tube containing CO2, bromthymol blue, and an elodea plant in an environment with light, it will result in a color change from…
PRE FORMULATION STUDY:
Pre formulation testing was an investigation of physical and chemical properties of a drug substance alone and when combined with excipients. It was the first step in the rational development of dosage forms.
Class: -Pre formulation study can divide into two subclasses:
Active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) characterization:-
Organoleptic evaluation:-These are preliminary characteristics of any substance which is useful in…
Uranium and its decay products can be found in the environment through a wide array of anthropogenic activities such as mining, nuclear and power generation industries and the production of phosphate fertilizers .(Sprynskyy et al. 2011) They pose a severe, long term ecological and public health threat (Khani 2011, Landa 2003) and therefore there is a considerable effort in the removal of these pollutants before their final discharge in the environment, as well as their recovery as an energy…
KHC8H4O4204.23 g KHC8H4O4= mol KHC8H4O4
The reaction occurs with the dispensal of the NaOH titrant from the buret into a flask containing the KHC8H4O4, which functioned as the analyte. The balanced equation for this reaction was:
KHC8H4O4 (aq) + NaOH (aq) → H2O (l) + NaKC8H4O4 (aq).
This indicates that there is a one-to-one mole ratio, in which one mole of KHC8H4O4 reacts with one mole of NaOH.
When the reaction is completed, it reaches its stoichiometric point, in which there are…
where the acids and bases have been added equally. The change from colorless to pink represents the end point of the reaction, indicating that the concentration of the acid can be measured. The point of equivalence will result at a pH of seven in the titration of sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid with sodium hydroxide.
The aim of the experiment is to find the unknown concentrations of the acids (Sulfuric and Hydrochloric) with the use of titration, using 50 cm3 of 0.1 M solution of the…
