The world overflows with stimuli. Many of these are advertising messages that will never know whether we hear them. They are not alive but continue speaking. We adjust our filters and stop listening to them in turn. In an economy of excess, the advertising industry meets this problem with more advertising. The vendors' cries grow louder and it becomes more difficult to withdraw. We are faced with questions of hospitality: How much should we allow to access our minds? Where is the point of rupture? Christian Hänggi holds an MSc in Communication Sciences from the University of Lugano and a PhD in Media and Communication from the European Graduate School.

Al Serhan Omar Islamic Hospitality . Tourism in the UK

6714 руб.
Islamic hospitality is a recent trend in the hospitality and tourism industry that has emerged as the need to cater for the specific religious requirements of Muslims has grown. This research has focused on a specific business niche in the UK hospitality sector that has not been investigated in previous studies. It also examines the hotel preference of UK Muslims and of Muslims visiting the UK from abroad. The work shows very clear similarities in Muslims' attitudes toward Shariah-compliant hotels (SCHs) when choosing a place to stay. Across all groups, SCHs received a very favourable response from a large percentage of participants. The findings reconfirm that religious affiliation influences travellers' behaviour, which is in turn motivated by internal factors, such as level of religiosity and whether travelling with the family or on business, and by external factors, such as SCHs' attributes, design and compliance with Shariah standards.

The principles of lean manufacturing – increasing efficiency, reducing waste, lowering costs and improving control – may be applied to any industry. However, the food industry is unique, and creates unique demands. The political, social and economic importance of food is unrivalled by any other form of produce, as is the scrutiny to which the manufacture of food is subjected.

Handbook of Lean Manufacturing in the Food Industry is a major new source of information and ideas for those working in food manufacturing. Offering a fresh and modern perspective on best practice, it points the way to fewer breakdowns, reduced quality faults, improved teamwork and increased profits.

Christopher Byrne A Profile of the United States Toy Industry. Serious Fun

4514 руб.
The toy industry is one of the most consistently misunderstood sectors of American business. That's no surprise because on many levels it resists easy definition. It's a commodity business. No, it's a fashion business. No, it's a consumer products business. No, it's an entertainment business. The fact is it's all of these businesses, each of which addresses and responds to market forces differently. And often, especially with the larger, publicly traded companies--all of these businesses share a balance sheet. This book will provide a concise and in-depth introduction to the structure, practices and market forces that impact the toy industry. It will offer a short history of the industry, a description of the current market landscape, major and emerging industry competitors, contemporary trends, changes and expectations for the future. It will further cover aspects of retailing, consumer behavior, and financial markets as they relate to the industry. As noted, the book will focus primarily on the U.S. toy industry, but will provide guidelines for extrapolating the information to the global toy market and a highlight of those issues, such as manufacturing, that are relatively consistent worldwide. The book is intended to provide a foundation for understanding the diverse and changing nature of the toy industry and to help readers develop a context for appreciating it relevant to other, more predictable and definable industries. Many students--and profes...

An introduction to the manufacturing industry Essential Manufacturing provides a comprehensive introduction to the wide breadth of the manufacturing industry. There is a need for all engineering and business students to understand the importance and context of the manufacturing industry. An engineer should have a well rounded appreciation of all aspects of the industry they work in, including manufacturing. This is evidenced by professional bodies expecting all accredited engineering courses to provide students with a background that allows them to see their own specific discipline in context. Similarly, business students will often find themselves dealing in some way with manufactured products or even be directly involved in manufacturing operations management. This book will cover the full spectrum of the manufacturing industry to provide a holistic appreciation of the topic but with enough detail to be of practical use. The book begins with an introduction to the manufacturing industry, its history, and some important manufacturing concepts. The materials used in manufacturing and how they are produced are covered. This is followed by a more detailed description of the more common manufacturing processes, their application, and the types of automation used in the manufacturing industry. Consideration is then given to the important aspects of manufacturing operations management and production planning and control, work study, and manufacturing economics. How to maintain quality in the manufacturing process, including metrology, is examined and this is followed by human factors in manufacturing. Finally, a speculative look at the future of manufacturing is included. Key features: Takes a self-contained approach. Includes review questions. Suitable as an introduction for more advanced study. Satisfies the requirements of college and first and second year university engineering courses. The book provides a comprehensive, concise introduction to the manufacturing industry for engineering and management students.
