Authors: OKETCH MARGARET, DR. OKWEMBA EMILY, DR. OTSYULAH JOSEPH

Abstracts: Strategic decisions are vital in the performance of any organization. They help to chart a course based on long-term goals and vision hence, there is a need for managers to be profound in the making of strategic decisions to achieve positive results in their institutions. However, the organizational performance of VTCs institutions has been an ongoing trial in an atmosphere of resource shortage, lack of quality infrastructure to support technical training, poor governance leading to embezzling of funds, weak management resulting to poor strategic decision making thus lack of strategic direction. The focal purpose of this study was to establish influence of heuristic decision making on the organizational performance of VTCs in Vihiga County. of random choice decision making on organizational performance of VTCs in Vihiga County. The study was guided by subjective expected utility (SEU) theory, prospect theory, and satisficing theory. The study was guided by pragmatism and adopted mixed method research design where both quantitative and qualitative data were collected. The target population of the study was 120 respondents where simple random sampling was used to get a sample of 60 respondents. Primary data was collected through self-administered questionnaires measured over a 5-point Likert scale. Reliability of the research instruments was tested through Cronbach’s Alpha and Construct validity was assessed through factor analysis. Data was analyzed using descriptive analysis inform of mean and standard deviation. Diagnostic Tests was done to test the model by testing for normality, autocorrelation, multicollinearity and heteroscedasticity while inferential statistics used Correlation analysis, ANOVA and regression analysis. The results of multi- regression analysis showed that heuristic decision making had a positive association on organizational performance with a coefficient of r = 0.170 and p- value of 0.015which was less than 0.05. The study concluded that an improvement in heuristic decision making influences organizational performance of VTCs by increasing the student enrolment.

Authors: SOUJANYAAH KARUNANITHY, KISHOME SIVARAJAH, VIKNATHARSHAN NADARAJAH, SIVASHANKAR SIVAGANESHAMOORTHY

Abstracts: Since most institutions and schools are switching to online or hybrid techniques due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the use of e-learning has been expanding rapidly. The primary goal of this research study is to improve the effectiveness of the online educational system, thus we would be focusing on the technologies such as Video processing, Natural Language Processing and Artificial Neural Networks, to develop the web application and reduce the workload for instructors and students. Video Processing is one of the most accurate ways to monitor human behaviour. Eye-tracking is a technique for capturing real-time, objective user behaviour. Eye motions are quick, subconscious movements that communicate information that even the responder is unaware of. Converting audio of video lectures into text with noise removal using Natural Language Processing so students can view the lecture videos with subtitle and read the transcript after the class finished and also transcript will be translated into preferable language which was selected by the student for getting more clarification on lessons. From this, students can easily understand the lectures and save their time. A system also has the ability to work well with paragraphs of text as input. So that customized question papers can be prepared based on student feedback and evaluated for self-assessment automatically using Natural Language Processing. Chatbots have significantly reduced human effort by providing automated human-like solutions to a wide range of business and societal issues. In that list, this chat-bot which is developed using the Artificial Neural Network technology will answer the students’ questions related to the subject and help them utilize their time in an effective manner with less effort while referring to a subject or preparing for the examination.

EMPLOYING THE ORDINARY LEAST SQUARE (OLS) TECHNIQUE TO ASSESS THE EFFECT OF WEATHER PARAMETERS ON RICE CULTIVATION IN SIERRA LEONE

Authors: ALHAJI MOHAMED HAMZA CONTEH, BRIMA GEBGE , SANPHA KALLON

Abstracts: The importance of the effect of weather to rice cultivation in the emerging nations is of vital insofar as the agricultural sub sector is involved. Currently, the association between weather and rice cultivation continues to create further attention in Sierra Leone agricultural growth. The increase in population and revenue in emerging nations carters for additional food request, although, the supply aspect is not enough to equalise the demand side. This research work assessed the effects of weather inputs on rice cultivation regarding planting area deviations in Sierra Leone. The authors employed weather time series data comprising sunshine, rainfall, minimum and maximum temperatures, as well as data from 1985 to 2021. To test for stationarity properties in the data, the Augment Dickey-Fuller (ADF) technique was used. Furthermore, all the series showed to unveil a long run association by Johansen Cointegration method at first levels I with the likelihood of taking the linear combination. The regression results shown that an increase in unit rainfall besides the usual moisture needed decrease the mean rice cultivation by 14.3 %. Though by stepwise regression method, other metrological parameters including sunshine, means of minimum and maximum temperature had lesser significance on rice cultivation. Predominantly, an increase in unit in the area planted was discovered to increase rice cultivation by 54.37 %.

USING MULTINOMIAL LOGISTIC REGRESSION MODEL (MLRM) TO ASSESS THE FACTORS INFLUENCING THE SELECTION OF FARMING BUSINESS BY CASSAVA AND RICE FARMERS IN BOMBALI DISTRICT, SIERRA LEONE

Authors: SANPHA KALLON

Abstracts: This research work assessed the factors influencing the selection of a business by cassava and rice farmers in Bombali district, Sierra Leone. The primary data for this research work were obtained by using a multi-stage sampling procedure. A well-structured questionnaire was administered to 150 randomly selected cassava and rice farmers to prompt pertinent facts from respondents in the selected study area. A Multinomial Logistic Regression Model (MLRM) was employed to assess the factors influencing the selection of business by cassava and rice farmers in the selected study area. The findings shown that majority (70.00%) of the farmers’ selected only rice farming business while as 20.00 % and 10.00 % of the farmers’ selected only cassava farming business and rice and cassava as mixed farming business respectively. Additionally, the study shown a yearly mean of 1.97 tons of combined rice and cassava output, as well as a farm size of 1.21 ha for each farmer, a clue that the research covered subsistence family owned farm sites. The respondents were fairly youths, and with elementary formal education. The Logistic regression model presented that farm size, output and revenue from the selected business positively and significantly influence a farmer’s preferred business. This suggests that the likelihood of selecting cassava or rice business increased with revenue netted from the business, output and farm size from selected business. The partial elasticities of output and revenue for rice and joint business were elastic, though other related factors along the sets equally classified were inelastic. This research work consequently, recommended that extension officials ought to intensify the awareness on various kinds, procedures and practices obtainable for cassava and rice farming to additionally advance their acceptance. Similarly, farm training programs on better management practices to increase cassava and rice output ought to be known to the cassava and rice cultivators.

OPTIMIZATION OF IMPERFECT MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS: INTERFERENCE ANALYSIS BETWEEN STOCHASTIC FLOW OF FAILURES AND PRODUCTION POLICY

Authors: MANDATSY MOUNGOMO JEAN BRICE

Abstracts: This article presents a problem of optimizing the optimal stochastic control policy of a manufacturing system operating in an uncertain environment. The manufacturing unit or machine can only produce one type of part at a time. The objective of the study is to develop an optimal joint production and maintenance planning strategy aimed at making the investment profitable (minimizing the total cost incurred) while satisfying a given demand. The manufacturing unit is subject to random breakdowns and repairs. The start-up time is negligible compared to the manufacturing time of a type of part and the average time between the arrival of requests (production flexibility). In addition, the cost of running is also negligible compared to the costs of inventorying, shortage and repair of the machine. A modeling approach based on stochastic control theory and an algorithm for numerical resolution of optimum conditions are presented. Finally, the study's contribution is to find optimal production and maintenance policies that are more improved than the Modified Hedging Corridor Policy (MHCP).
