Juraj Katriak for his invaluable help and guidance during the elaboration of this thesis. I would like to also thank to my family and Zuzka for their support during my study. Cieľom tejto diplomovej práce je v úvode teoreticky spracovať základný Nelson-Siegelov model a jeho dve modifikované prístupy, ktoré budeme v praktickej časti porovnávať. Túto praktickú časť vykonáme na sade nemeckých štátnych dlhopisov a buďe spočívať v porovnaní týchto troch metód, doplnených o dve váhované alternatívy, v schopnosti aproxímacie výnosovej krivky na jednej strane a v takzvanej out-of-sample analýze na strane druhej. Druhé spomínané porovnanie je prínosné najmä tým, že odráža schopnosť modelov teoreticky oceniť dlhopisy, ktoré neboli zahrnuté do odhadovania, a následne máme možnosť túto teoretickú cenu porovnať s reálnymi trhovými hodnotami. V praktickej časti taktiež analyzujeme a popisujeme extrahované parametre z cien dlhopisov pre jednotlivé metódy...

PRE-AWARD AUDIT UNTUK PENGADAAN BARANG JASA ...

PRE-AWARD AUDIT UNTUK PENGADAAN BARANG JASA SEBAGAI ALTERNATIF PENINGKATAN PERAN APIP Pengadaan barang/jasa masih menjadi primadona bagi pelaku korupsi di Indonesia. Kondisi ini diperburuk dengan APIP yang masih mengandalkan post audit yaitu melakukan audit setelah proses pengadaan barang jasa selesai. Dengan post audit peran APIP sebagai quality assurance proses pengadanaan barang/jasa kurang optimal dimana penghematan dan best value of money tidak tercapai optimal. Alternatif terbaik bagi APIP adalah lebih banyak melakukan current audit untuk menghasilkan penghematan. Korupsi di Indonesia paling banyak dilakukan lewat modus pengadaan barang/jasa pemerintah. Proyek Fasilitas Olah Raga di Hambalang, Bogor dengan nilai Rp 2,5 Trilyun menurut BPK terdapat indikasi kerugian negara Rp 243,66 milliar (Kompas.com, 31 Oktober 2012), Proyek simulator SIM senilai Rp 196 milliar diduga dikorupsi sehingga menimbulkan kerugian Negara sebesar Rp 144 milliar (Tempo.com, 24 April 2012), dan Proyek pengadaan Al-quran dan Laboratorium yang membagi-bagi fee Rp. 103,2 milliar (Kompas.com, 6 Mei 2013). Data di atas menunjukkan bahwa seandainya uang tersebut dapat dicegah sebelum terjadi transaksi pengadaan barang/jasa dapat dibayangkan penghematan yang dapat dilakukan. Pengalaman Negara Amerika Serikat dalam menerapkan pre-award audit berhasil menghemat anggaran Negara dengan cukup signifikan. Laporan US Government Accountability Office atas manajemen pengadaan barang/jasa di lingkungan Veterans Affairs Federal Supply Schedule dari tahun 1999 sampai dengan 2004 menunjukkan penghematan besar dari penerapan pre-award audit dibandingkan dengan post-award audit. Tabel 1 menunjukkan hasil penghematan yang bisa dilakukan melalui audit pre award dan audit post award dalam proses pengadaan barang/jasa bidang kesehatan dimana pre award menghasilkan penghematan yang lebih besar dibandingkan dengan post award. Dalam kurun waktu 5 (lima) tahun terakhir penghematan melalui pre award mencapai 62,68 % dari total penghematan yang mencapai $ 240,6 millon. Pengalaman Amerika Serikat menghemat anggaran Negara dari pengadaan barang/jasa melalui penerapan pre award bisa memberikan inspirasi bagi APIP melakukan audit pengadaan barang/jasa dengan pre award. Ketika para auditor hanya terlibat pada akhir proses pengadaan barang/jasa (post award) maka penghematan biaya/anggaran publik sering tidak tercapai. 2. Pembahasan 2.1 Apakah pre-award audit Sesuai dengan pembahasan dalam Forum Komunikasi JFA dan Kepegawaian tahun 2010, preaward audit didefinisikan sebagai audit yang dilaksanakan untuk memberikan keyakinan yang memadai bahwa calon penyedia barang/jasa yang diusulkan oleh panitia pengadaan memiliki kelayakan/kemampuan kerja dan keuangan untuk melaksanakan kontrak serta harga yang ditawarkan adalah wajar dan secara ekonomis menguntungkan negara. Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) mendefinisikan pre-award audit sebagai “an evaluation of a prospective contractor’s capability to perform a proposed contract” (FAR, 2005). USAID dalam Contract Information Bulletin 92-16 menyatakan bahwa “A pre-award audit is a tool that the contracting officer can use to acquire information in order to determine the reasonableness of the offeror's proposed cost or price. The pre-award audit is a detailed analysis of the proposal, and contains information on the basis and method used by the offeror in proposal preparation, and any discrepancies in the way in which the cost or pricing data were used in preparing the proposal. (USAID, 1992). Dari penjelasan di atas maka pre-award audit merupakan audit atas kemampuan calon kontraktor /penawar (offeror) menyelesaikan pekerjaan dan memastikan biaya atau harga yang diajukan dalam penawaran merupakan biaya dan harga yang rasional. Tujuan utama dari pre-award audit antara lain sebagai upaya pencegahan korupsi, kolusi, dan nepotisme dalam proses pengadaan barang/jasa. Disamping tujuan tersebut, pre-award audit juga bertujuan memberikan pendapat (quality assurance) bahwa proses pengadaan barang/jasa telah taat pada peraturan, kemampuan penyedia barang/jasa menyelesaikan pekerjaan , dan kewajaran harga penawaran...

Introduction of the “ARION Plus”, Battery Powered, 4-Wheel Forklift ...

Introduction of the “ARION Plus”, Battery Powered, 4-Wheel Forklift Truck People in this country are growing increasingly conscious of global ecology, as disruption of nature continues and environmental problems become more and more pronounced. Turning our attention to the market of forklift trucks, meanwhile, customers are heightening their cost consciousness and are highly critical not only of the initial cost but also of the repair and maintenance costs of their forklift trucks. Against such a social backdrop, battery powered forklift trucks without gas emissions and noise are rapidly replacing the conventional combustion engine powered forklift trucks that in the past have accounted for more than half the total market. However, battery powered forklift trucks in general have been inferior to the engine powered type in terms of horsepower and continuous operating time, which has necessarily limited the range of potential users. In response to this assessment our ARION Plus Series has been developed to better address the shortcomings of previous battery powered forklift trucks. They compare favorably with the engine powered type in terms of horsepower and yet maintain the characteristics inherent in the battery powered type, i.e. “clean and noise-free” In this thesis, we will summarize the features of the ARION Plus Series. Key Words: Ecology, Environmental Problem, Battery Powered Forklift Truck, Maintenance-free, Repair and Maintenance Cost 1. Introduction 1.1 Market trend The demand in Japan’s domestic market for batter y powered forklift trucks is increasing year by year, accounting for more than 40% of the market share in 2001. (See Fig. 1) Forklift tr ucks are classified into three kinds, i.e. counterbalance type, reach type and walker type. In the domestic market, the first two types are the mainstream models and their numbers are rapidly increasing (See Table 1). Their growing popularity in the world is largely explained by customers’ concern for the environment, protection of their employees against the noise and vibration from engine powered trucks and a desire to elevate their practices to the levels of the developed countries of Europe and the US. Thus customers are moving away from the traditional engine powered (particularly gasoline engine powered) forklift trucks, which accounted for over 50% of the total market. (See Fig. 2) What are the situations outside of Japan in this regard? In Europe, where an assor tment of stringent policies are universally applied to alleviate environmental problems, the battery powered type has long exceeded 50% of the market, while in the US, the battery to engine ratio remains almost equal, similar to the case in Japan. From now on, however, there is no doubt but what the market share of battery powered forklift trucks will continue to increase in both countries. On the other hand, in the market for engine powered forklift trucks, compact size trucks and CNG (compressed natural gas) powered trucks are being aggressively introduced, encroaching the traditional market for battery powered forklift trucks. (A counterbalance type, battery powered forklift truck is composed of a chargeable lead storage battery (predominantly 48 VDC type), travel motor, work equipment motor that drives a hydraulic pump for material-handling devices and a steering motor plus a controller that serves to control each motor. (See Fig. 4) When contrasted with the engine type, the batter y powered type possesses such advantages as economy, compactness, low noise, low vibration and no emissions...

CmpSci 491IP, iOS Programming Spring 2013, TuTh 9:30 - 10:45 ...

CmpSci 491IP, iOS Programming Book: Beginning iPhone 6 Development, Dave Mark and Jeff LaMarche, Apress. Currently only available as an e-book, direct from publisher Optional Reference: Programming in Objective-C 2.0, 2nd Edition, Stephen Kochan, Addison Wesley In this seminar we will be exploring how to program Apple iDevices. While they are just plain cool and fun to work with, the “serious intellectual motivation” for our work is that mobile platforms are now a major part of the industry, and present special challenges such as limited power, memory, and screen space. They also offer some exciting hardware features such as touch-screen, accelerometer, location awareness, camera, sound, etc., and of course extreme portability, that make possible some innovative applications. Learning ObjectiveC and the Cocoa Touch API is, like learning any new language, a good exercise to develop mental flexibility and new perspectives on how languages and OO libraries can be designed. We are jumping to iOS 6, even though books and resources for learning it are still scarce because it presents new approaches and paradigms that are likely to last a while. However, many of the basics remain the same. So we’ll start with basics, and then later will transition to iOS 6 specific features as necessary and depending on people’s interests. Because this is a seminar, there is flexibility to explore different aspects of the APIs, and because the library is huge, we can’t hope to cover it all. The class will be run as a seminar in which students prepare and give presentations. Initially, I’ll do a few lectures to lay some groundwork and provide time for you to prepare. At least a week before your presentation, you should schedule a time with me to plan what you will do with your time. You have an hour or more, and I expect you to use it. Your presentations can begin with walking the class through examples from the book, but part of the grading of them will be in how much you take us beyond the book. If you have a laptop that can run XCode and the iPhone simulator, you should always bring it to class, because we’ll be actively going through examples, testing out ideas, sharing what we discover, and sometimes helping each other with solving problems. Later in the semester, we’ll switch into project mode. You’ll be developing a project proposal for an app, including a simple business plan, schedule, and so on. Projects can be done individually or in a team. During that phase, some class time will be devoted to project reviews and demos, working as a group to come up with solutions to problems, etc. Projects will be proposed and get under way while we are still in the first phase of the course. ..

Background OWH was established in 1991 in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, within the Office of the Secretary. Its mission is to improve the health of American women by advancing and coordinating a comprehensive women’s health agenda throughout the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The HHS Office on Women’s Health is the government’s champion and primary agent for women’s health issues, working to redress inequities in research, health care services, and education that have historically placed the health of women at risk. OWH is the Department’s focal point for ensuring that women’s health policy, practice, and research are mutually informed and effectively integrated within HHS. OWH accomplishes this by collaborating with other federal and non-federal partners on behalf of women and girls. OWH provides leadership to promote equity for women and girls through sex and gender specific approaches. OWH has staff located in Washington, D.C. and a network of Regional Women’s Health Coordinators (RWHCs) located in each of the ten federal regions. The RWHCs coordinate and implement national public health initiatives to promote a greater focus on women's health issues at the regional, state, and local levels. The RWHCs advance the mission of the OWH by administering programs that improve the health of women in communities across the country and by coordinating activities in health care service delivery, research, and public and health professional education. Sensitivity to local, state, and regional needs in women's health is reflected in their work to identify priority health areas, to establish networking relationships, and to implement initiatives addressing regional women's health concerns. For additional information about the RWHCs and the regional offices.As part of its strategic plan, OWH continues to fund evidence-based interventions to address gaps in women’s health that are not addressed at the national level by any other public or private entity. ..

EECE 418 – Pre-proposal: The Interface on the LG Chocolate ...

EECE 418 – Pre-proposal: The Interface on the LG Chocolate TG800 Cellular Phone Description I have chosen the interface of the LG Chocolate TG800, a popular last-generation GSM cellular phone. The LG Chocolate was originally marketed as a mid-level slide-up camera phone for the style-conscientious user. The TG800 is a slide phone; the phone is unlocked and ready to receive input when the top section of the cell phone is slid upwards, revealing a standard T9 keypad as indicated in the figure below. Figure 1: LG Chocolate TG800 Slide Phone The entire region surrounding and inside the silver box on the top of the phone acts as nine different buttons, all of which are touch-sensitive. On either side of the phone are two tactile buttons. The three interface problems I am addressing with the TG800 are: 1. User has no visual cues to suggest what the four short-cut arrows do. 2. The button which allows the user to access certain features during a call (such as to hold the call or mute) is immediately adjacent to the end-call button. 3. The buttons on one side of the phone allows for volume adjustments while the buttons on the other side of the phone allows the user to turn off the phone or hang up; it is easy to accidentally press the power button when we simply wish to adjust the volume. These problems will be explained in further detail in the next section. Analysis The LG Chocolate interface allows the user to access the various functions of the phone; the user can make a call, take photos with the built-in camera or listen to music stored on the internal memory, and perform many other tasks through the phone interface. As with most cellular phones, the user demographics of the LG Chocolate are extremely wide and varied. While the product may have been marketed towards young, style-savvy users, the LG Chocolate has been adopted by members of other demographics. The following is a very small sampling of possible functional and non-functional requirements of the LG Chocolate phone: Functional Requirements: 1. The interface must allow for the user to make calls from the default state by either inputting the number to be dialed on the keypad or the user may scroll through the contact list and select a contact to call. 2. The interface must allow for the user to access the phone’s additional features including the camera, media player, etc. 3. The interface must allow for the user to quickly answer incoming calls and disconnect when finished. 4. The interface must allow for the user to adjust the volume of the speaker during a call. 5. The interface must allow for the user to access advanced calling features mid-call. Non-Functional Requirements: 1. The interface must respond to user input in no more than 0.5 seconds at any given time. One major problem with the interface of the LG Chocolate is the use of the arrow shortcut keys. The arrow keys on the touch pad allow the user to navigate menus in a self-explanatory manner. However, when the phone is in the default state, immediately after sliding the cover up and unlocking the phone, the four arrows are mapped to different functions, allowing the user to bypass the traditional menu screen and access specific components of the phone’s features quickly. However, since there are no visual cues to represent what the arrows do, the user must rely solely on memory to determine which features map to these shortcut arrows. Unless the user remembers exactly what the arrows do, it is more efficient to simply navigate through the traditional menu system. Another problem with the LG Chocolate interface is that in order to access the phone’s...
