Title : Proposal of a New Vietnam Production Model, NVPM: A New Integrated Production System of Japan and Vietnam
Country : Japan
Authors : Shogo Miyashita || Kakuro Amasaka
: 10.9790/487X-161211825    logo

Abstract: Automakers in Vietnam are currently expanding production with the intent of becoming a global industry. At the same time, these manufacturers need a production strategy to beat out the global quality competition and overcome associated new challenges, including the management of quality, production, and personnel and strategic collaboration with overseas automakers. Thus, seeing the need to improve the quality of Vietnamese automobile manufacturing in the future, the authors have constructed the "New Vietnam Production Model, NVPM". This model integrates the Total Production System (TPS), the leading Japanese production system, and the current Vietnamese production system from a new perspective. Specifically, the authors' research examines (i) the successful "Advanced TPS," which is an advanced model of the TPS, and (ii) the Traditional Vietnamese Production System (VPS-T), which is currently established in Vietnam, as well as the localized Vietnamese Production System (VPS-L). Based on the findings, the authors constructed the NVPM, which intelligently integrates Advanced TPS and VPS-T&L.

Abstract: One of the major factors determining economic development is Entrepreneurship. It has been found that the higher the Entrepreneurship in any economy, the greater is the economic development. GEDI is a good indicator of the level of entrepreneurship in any economy. Based on the GEDI it has been seen how developed countries are having a high Global entrepreneurship Development Index. Economies should therefore strive to put a strong emphasis on entrepreneurship as a key to development. In order to achieve this, developing countries should find ways to encourage entrepreneurship and this paper attempts to trace the stages of entrepreneurship development and also suggests measures that can lead an economy to success in this crucial area of development.

Country : Nigeria

Abstract: Effective performance management has been acknowledged by management scientists as sine qua non for optimal growth and development of organizations, for profit or not for profit making entities alike. Selected literatures reveal that hitherto, financial performance has been the primary focus of performance management in both private businesses and governmental ministries and agencies. However, recent arguments have revealed the flaws of the traditional performance management instruments and advocated contemporarily and more plausible instruments that could engender optimal growth and development of organizations. The primary objective of this paper is to review the performance management practices in Nigeria with a view to exploring contemporary and more pragmatic practices that would enhance service delivery by the government. The paper reveals, from existing literature, that public service in Nigeria is characterized by attendant weaknesses that engender poor performance in service delivery.

Abstract:This paper studied the impact of cashless policy in Nigeria Economy. The policy was introduced by Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in December 2011 and was kick-started in Lagos in January 2012. Survey research was adopted with questionnaire as data collection instrument. Responses from the respondents show that cashless policy will increase employment; reduce cash related robbery thereby reducing risk of carrying cash; cashless policy will also reduce cash related corruption and attract more foreign investors to the country. The study, therefore, shows that the introduction of cashless economy in Nigeria can be seen as a step in the right direction. It is expected that its impact will be felt in modernization of Nigeria payment system, reduction in the cost of banking services, reduction in high security and safety risks and also curb banking related corruptions.

Abstract: This research work was undertaken to examine the problems of quality control in manufacturing firms, the various techniques of quality control used and to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of their applications. This study also set to find out what manufacturing firms seek to achieve through quality control practice. To achieve these objectives, a study of Nigeria Breweries Plc, Enugu, south east Nigeria was carried out. A review of related literature was also undertaken. Data were collected through distribution of questionnaires and the use of textbooks, newspapers, magazines, and journals. The method of statistical analysis used includes table and percentage while chi-square was used to test hypotheses formulated. From the study, it was discovered that quality control practice in manufacturing firms encountered problems as a result of the following; non-awareness of quality control techniques, inability to understand the need of customers, cost of application and management attitude.

Abstract: Entrepreneurship combines the passion of a social mission with an image of business commonly associated with the high-tech or low-tech business ventures. Entrepreneurship has long been perceived as one of the significant factors leading to development. This research examined the barriers that pose as obstacles to the pursuit of entrepreneurial endeavours in Nigeria. The objective of the research is to have an insight into common daily activities that relate to all aspects of our lives. The research is based on quantitative research, using a questionnaire of 27 items for data collection. Descriptive data and statistical analyses were presented to identify and assess barriers to entrepreneurship in Nigeria. The research provided valuable insight into the factors affecting entrepreneurial inclination in developing countries like Ngeria. The findings of this research suggested that there are important barriers to entrepreneurship in developing countries. In Nigeria, the most significant of those barriers are: lack of social network, lack of external stability, lack of risk aversion technique, and lack of good business environment that is conducive to entrepreneurship. The significance of this research lies in the fact that it fills an important gap in the literature of entrepreneurial development, offering deeper understanding of the barriers to entrepreneurship in a developing nation, like Nigeria.
