Mechanist Behaviour

...1. A union exists and Dinesh is a part of it. 2. Since this problem exists elsewhere in the organization the training program can be organization wide. Since mechanists are not skilled labour and still they get away without being fired shows that the organization is one, which has a union. Since Ganesh has no complaints with the work that Dinesh does and since Dinesh is known for his temper and alcoholism Dinesh seems to be facing some kind of problem in family or factory. He is not someone who evades work by nature or is ineffective but only reacts badly to situations a few times. He is facing some kind of pressure and when it becomes too much he takes his anger out on someone in the work place. The fact that he has been with the organization for 5 years seem to suggest that he feels fairly experienced and does not want the supervisor to tell him to do things other than what he was already doing. "Critical Incidents Method" can be used effectively here. The work of a mechanist is quite routine and does not need constant appraisal. It would be better if the appraisal system were such that it only takes into account special events. Since this kind of behaviour exists elsewhere in the job it suggests that there is some sort of pressure in the job. This could also be caused due to the monotonous nature of the work. A training program designed to release stress can prove beneficial here. Yoga is something that comes to mind immediately. The problem of......

Through Silicon-Via (Tsv) Technology

...Through Silicon-Via (TSV) Technology Abstract Increasing demands for electronic devices with superior performance and functionality with longer battery life while reducing their sizes, weights and energy consumption has driven the semiconductor industry to develop more advanced packaging technologies. Among all different types of packaging technologies proposed, three-dimensional (3D) vertical integration (3D stacking of chips) using through silicon via (TSV) copper interconnect is currently considered one of the most advanced technologies in the semiconductor industry. The co-efficient of thermal expansion of copper is 5-6 times more than that of silicon. This leads to thermal stresses in the via. These stresses are analyzed in this paper. Also, these stresses lead to a change in carrier mobility. This leads to formation of keep out zones (KOZ) in surrounding silicon. The various factors affecting the size of the KOZs are also considered. 1 1 Introduction A via (Latin for path or way) is an electrical connection between layers in a physical electronic circuit that goes through the plane of one or more adjacent layers. A through-silicon via (TSV) is a vertical electrical connection (via) passing completely through a silicon wafer or die. This is an interconnection method in which holes are drilled through active chips, after which they are filled with an interconnect material. Different tiers of chips are then stacked on each other by......

Michaels Auto Repair Shop

...(including 1000 mechanics). Last year, Michael’s decided to launch a Mobile Mechanic Service (MMS) which enabled the customer to call for a mechanic at the site of the breakdown. The service operated from a Central Control Room (CCR), a call center which received customers’ request and handed them over to various Regional Warehouse Units (RWUs) which housed the mechanics with their pick-up trucks. The mechanics from the RWU received the customer’s request along with the directions of the site of the breakdown and would drive down to the site in their pick up trucks. The instructions to the mechanics were to complete the job on site if it could be completed within 45 minutes with the spares available, or else to tow the car back to the RWU. The RWU also had a support staff that ensured that the pick-up trucks were well stocked with spares and ready for the next service visit. Low productivity Since the business started 10 years ago, the top management of Michael’s was concerned about the productivity of their mechanics, but with the launch of the MMS, this issue became more visible. An analysis of the data showed that on an average, the mechanics were servicing 2.5 cars per day, far fewer than what was expected, since servicing one car took less than an hour to complete. Peter D’Souza, an MBA from a premier institute was recently recruited as the Chief of Operations and was assigned the task of finding a solution to this problem. On discussing with the mechanics and their......

Leadership and Team Managment

...who appreciate the fact that they receive quick, reliable services at a fair price. Alan employee’s seven mechanics and two office workers. Gil and Hans are the two oldest mechanics and they are the easiest to supervise. When Alan assigns work to them (mostly high-precision, specialist jobs), they do it quickly and hardly ever make a mistake. Bart and Herbie are also skilled mechanics and Bart specializes in repairing motorcycles, and Herbie is whiz at troubleshooting engine problems. Three younger workers do the jobs that call for lower-level skills under Alan’s more careful guidance. Kirk has a degree in industrial arts but he could not get a job in his specialty without moving to another city and he seems to have resigned himself to auto repair work. Lamont enjoys working on sports cars and is getting to be quite an expert at operating the electronic diagnostic machines. Joanie does general mechanical work and does it well. Alan takes care of customers when they drop off their cars in the morning, then he plans the work schedule and assigns the mechanics to work on particular cars. Most of the work is done by individual mechanics but occasionally a job requires two mechanics to work together. The work of repairing cars and conducting routine maintenance on them is welldefined; there are standard procedures and standard times to perform each type of repair task. Mechanics receive feedback about the quality of their work from testing the car and from customers (who will......

Case: Where Do You Find the Bodies??

...Boomtown has grown from 30,000 to 60,000 in three years and the unemployment rate in town is less than 3%. Those not working simply would rather not. The Auto Service Center is normally staffed with three mechanics, two “grease monkeys” who do less skilled work, and three tire changer/clean-up persons. The wages paid these people are dictated from corporate headquarters in an effort to maintain common rates between stores. Unfortunately the wages offered (although very competitive elsewhere) are well below what people can make in either the coal mines or with the exploration companies. The last mechanic (who made $20,000 a year) quit, Wednesday to go to work repairing diesel earth-moving equipment at $38,000 a year plus overtime. The store had also been unable to replace the grease monkeys and clean-up persons. The last one quit a $5.80/hour job two weeks ago to work in the mines at $14.52/hour. Milt’s boss, the Automotive Manager, has just given him the assignment of recruiting and filling the vacant positions. The service department has almost ground to a halt without employees and the manager would like the problem fixed quickly. Questions 1. How does this case illustrate the lack of HR planning? 2. What approaches could be used to recruit mechanics?...

Blame Canada

...Professor ENG. April 9, 2015 Blame Canada!!! Air Canada was a more likeable job than Russell Toyota because it was a nicer place to work. Air Canada was a white collar job. Air Canada was climate controlled. The type of work done at Air Canada was easy, not time consuming, or that physical. Most of the work consisted of standing behind the counter checking in passengers. There were many breaks between the planes departure, which meant a lot of down time. There was very little heavy lifting, at most was a few pounds. This job was mostly walking to and from the gates. Co-workers and passengers were always smiling. The pay at Air Canada was more than at Russell Toyota. Air Canada paid per hour. Show up and get paid. Air Canada was my favorite job so far. Being that the airport is only three miles from home, the commute was much shorter and calmer than that of Russell Toyota. Russell Toyota was my least favorite job. Russell Toyota was a blue collar job. The Russell Toyota body shop was not climate controlled. The body shop was dusty and dirty. Blazing hot in summer, freezing cold in winter. In contrast the work at Russell Toyota was hard, meticulous, physically challenging. Unlike that of the airport which was not. Fixing cars after a collision is time consuming and physically demanding work. Russell Toyota was twenty two mile away from home. This made commuting a total pain in the neck. Having to fight traffic every day, an hour both ways was a big hassle. The customers......

Inquiry Essay-Women in the Workforce

...Kaitlyn Feeler One question I have always pondered is how society shapes gender roles. I came to explore this question because I wanted to be a mechanic, until I saw the sexism that women have to endure in the auto mechanic industry. Therefore, I felt that being an orthodontist would be the best profession for me. I came to this decision by exploring how gender roles effect women, how media effects women, how women in the work forces are effected, and the specific sexism that comes with the auto mechanic industry. I began my research with an article by Rachel Francis. Rachel Francis wrote an article called “The Art of Being a Woman in a Male-Dominated Field.” Rachel states that “Surprisingly, the things that make my job challenging are not the lack of knowledge, an inability to learn, trouble working with others, poor communication skills or even downright laziness. The things that make my job a challenge are all the things I have absolutely no control over: my appearance, my age and my gender.” This quote truly shows how a women’s work ethic truly has nothing to do with how easy or hard it is to make it in a job, especially when it comes to working in a male-dominates industry. This is because women are taught to dress to please men, yet this distracts men. If a woman is too young they are viewed as unintelligent sex objects, which also distracts men. If a woman is too old then they are viewed as unattractive and not able to change with modern society. Then there is......

...Gems are highly prized minerals that have a common appeal to all cultures, and their legacy extends to prehistoric times. As far back as 20,000 years ago, our ancestors, the Cro-Magnon, ornamented their bodies with lavish strings of beads made from ivory, seashells, and gemstones (Cook). As is the custom today, the use of jewelry was determined by fashion and reflected one's rank in society. Malachite is cut into cabochons or slabs to be used in rings, necklaces, brooches, and in art objects ( Though not a precious stone, its vibrant colour is highly prized. Possibly the earliest order of copper, malachite is believed to have been mined in a Sinai and eastern deserts of ancient Egypt from was early as 300BCE. Single crystal are uncommon; when found, they are short to long prism. Malachite is usually found as botryoidal or encrusting masses, often with a radiating fibrous structure and banded in various shades of green. The beautiful green crystal has been used since ancient times in inlay work and in carvings of churches and cathedrals as it is found in huge boulders (Bonewitz pg 125). It was also used as a pigment for paint during the 15th century in Egyptian tomb paintings and much later in European art. The Victorians were also great admirers of opaque jewelry stones, and malachite was chosen to be one of their favorites, sometimes choosing it to set in gold. It also occurs as delicate fibrous aggregates and as concentrically banded stalactites (Bonewitz......
