...Selection Structure Paper Given the following task: Selection Structure Paper, Use the Part 1: Programming Solution Proposal you developed in Week Two and select one section of the proposal that requires a selection structure. Write a 2- to 3-page paper describing the purpose of that structure and write the pseudocode for that structure. Examine any iteration control structure. If the program you described in Week Two does not lend itself well to the inclusion of a selection structure, create a new example of a selection structure. Create a Visual Logic flowchart that parallels this pseudocode. Test the flowchart to make sure that it executes properly and produces correct results. Submit the paper and the Visual Logic file. Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines. The process of selection is a way for the computer to interact with the user and to be able to understand how to make choices based on the user’s point of view or interest. Selection can be understood by computers by transforming such selections into algebraic equations, and from there into binary code which is the language that the computer understands, once the program is written, it will use a compilator, which acts as the translator between computer language and human language. The process of selection allows the user to choose what to do and then it gives options where to choose from, and it gives results which vary depending on the option selected by the user, when using the process of......

...Personnel Review 28,1/2 134 Received October 1996 Revised/Accepted October 1997 Employee selection: a question of structure Jean M. Barclay Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow, UK Keywords Employee selection, Interviews, Selection, United Kingdom Abstract The first part of a larger study into organisations’ use of structured interviewing techniques. Discusses reasons for continued popularity of interviewing in selection, despite its shortcomings. Considers the use of two structured interviewing techniques to improve selection: behavioural and situational questioning. Presents the findings of a large scale survey of UK organisations’ use of these techniques. The use of structured interviewing is rapidly increasing and is used by all sizes of organisation. Behavioural interviewing is being used more than situational interviewing, and many respondents use both techniques. Structured techniques are most commonly used for management posts. Discusses links with competency based HRM and roles of line managers and HR specialists in selection. Areas for further research are outlined. Introduction Interviewing is still the most commonly used method of selection in employment, in spite of the fact that many studies have shown it to be a very flawed technique. Given the preference of managers and human resource practitioners for interviewing, structured interviewing techniques have been suggested as a means of improving validity. Much of the research into these interviewing......

After an in depth look at the problem and analysis of the problem it has led to the first stages of product design. The project is on schedule and an example of the programs functions and use of control structures will be introduced as we discuss the program updates. Part Number Input Module One of the major functions of the program will not only be footage production, which will be discussed in later program development reports but also part number tracking. Tracking what part number is ran within each run will provide a historical database for analysis providing improved inventory control procedures. The data will be tracked as currently tracked on paper but stored digitally into a database. This process can be realized within the program by the utilization of control structures and iteration control structures. Control Structures As discussed within (Venit & Drake, 2011) a selection control structure gives a computer the ability to take a defensive stance against incorrect data, which forces users to enter valid data as the input. Selection control structures additionally offer users the ability to make a decision within a...

...1. Executive Summary After having full exposure to the cost structure of De Havilland’s Dash 8 airplane I immediately becameaware of their high manufacturing cost which has been caused by the high cost of sourcing the flapshrouds and bay doors from Dollard Plastics of Montreal. The latter showed no flexibility on reducingtheir prices on the above parts when the former was in search of ways to improve their productionefficiencies by reducing the cost attributed to Dash 8 airplane. Kim Tomar, the Financial Analyst at DeHavilland had realized that issue and therefore started the process of finding a new business partner whois capable of meeting a set of standards that De Havilland had developed earlier for their procurementdepartment, had started the process about year and half earlier than the expiry date with the incumbentsupplier.After receiving 9 bids to supply the needed parts, I have recommended Morton to De Havilland’sSource Selection Board (SSB) as prospective vendor for selection provided that Mortonmust pass the set of standards which I mentioned above. Based on the initial information fromthe normalized bids from all nine bidders, the lowest bid was Morton Enterprises. Their bid was18% lower than their nearest competitor, and when I compared prices of the needed components tothe prices supplied by current providers they were between 54% and 75% less expensive.However, beyond parts cost reduction we are also interested in establishing long-termco-operative contracts......

Selection

...Outline the different selection methods that are available to organisations and discuss how the use of assessment centres might support the selection process. During the selection process, a company may utilise a variety of methods in order to be sure of which applicant they wish to hire. These methods will include widely used techniques such as requesting a curricula vitae be submitted, a face-to-face interview and references from employers. Another method to support the process, is the use of assessment centres. Assessment centres were originally introduced during World War Two in order to select officers in the army and navy (Ballantyne & Pover 2004 p.3-4). However since then they have become more commonly used within businesses with, according to research by the Industrial Relations Services, over 50% using them (Martin & Jackson 2002 pg.130). An assessment centre can support the selection process by allowing a business to observe applicants whilst they carry out a number of set tasks such as individual or group work, analytical exercises, oral or written output and input or role play. Assessment centres will also allow businesses to gain an insight into the characteristics of the candidates as they perform tasks which are as similar to job reality as possible (CIPD 2013). In order for any method to be effective, there are numerous criteria which must be true of the method. First the method must be both reliable and valid. Reliability is defined by......
