Rethinking the tendering frameworks of construction contractors in the context of a soft systems methodology

Stephen URQUHART, Andrew WHYTE

Frontiers of Engineering Management 2018, Volume 5, Issue 3,   Pages 369-380 doi: 10.15302/J-FEM-2018019

Abstract:

Limited research has been conducted on the internal tendering procedures (ITP) of construction contractors because of the commercially sensitive and confidential nature of the subject matter. This limitation explains the reluctance of contractors to undergo interviews. Existing research (outside bid/no-bid and margin decision factor identification and subsequent decision modeling development) only begins to provide insights into key tendering stages, particularly around risk assessments and corporate review processes. Early research suggested one to three review stages. However, when considering the whole work procurement process from prospect identification to contract execution, five to seven series of reviews can be arguably applied by some contractors, wherein some reviews stepped through several layers of internal senior management. Tendering processes were presented as flowchart models that traditionally follow “hard” system (rectangular shapes and straight line arrows) steps, which suggest that a precise process also leads to precise results. However, given that contractors do not win every tender they submit, the process is less precise than that suggested in rigidly structured flowcharts. Twenty-five detailed semi-structured interviews were held with purposely selected high-profile publicly and privately owned construction companies in Australia with significantly varied turnovers. Analyses show that contractors are concerned about the negative effects of increasing corporate governance demands, with many stating that people involved are the most critical element to tendering success. A new way of presenting the ITP of contractors is assessed using a soft systems methodology (SSM) approach. SSM offers an alternative way of considering human interaction challenges within the ITP of contractors, which needs to be tested with the industry. The format graphics of SSM guidelines are presented as a way of offering contractors a different approach, which may assist individuals who are looking to re-structure their tendering activities in a more humanistic and less rigid procedural approach.

Understanding channel tropism in traditional Chinese medicine in the context of systems biology

Ping Liu, Songlin Liu, Gang Chen, Ping Wang

Frontiers of Medicine 2013, Volume 7, Issue 3,   Pages 277-279 doi: 10.1007/s11684-013-0273-3

Abstract:

Channel tropism is investigated and developed through long-term clinical practice. In recent years, the development of channel tropism theory has attracted increasing attention. This study analyzed channel tropism theory and the problems associated with it. Results showed that this theory and systems biology have a similar holistic viewpoint. Systems biology could provide novel insights and platform in the study of channel tropism. Some problems in channel tropism theory, including pharmacology and action mechanism, were investigated.

Crop residues: applications of lignocellulosic biomass in the context of a biorefinery

Maria Carolina ANDRADE, Caio de Oliveira GORGULHO SILVA, Leonora Rios de SOUZA MOREIRA, Edivaldo Ximenes FERREIRA FILHO

Frontiers in Energy 2022, Volume 16, Issue 2,   Pages 224-245 doi: 10.1007/s11708-021-0730-7

Abstract: Interest in lignocellulosic biomass conversion technologies has increased recently because of their potential to reduce the dependency on non-renewable feedstocks. Residues from a variety of crops are the major source of lignocellulose, which is being produced in increasingly large quantities worldwide. The commercial exploitation of crop residues as feedstocks for biorefineries which could be used to produce a variety of goods such as biofuels, biochemicals, bioplastics, and enzymes is an attractive approach not only for adding value to residues but also for providing renewable products required by the expanding bioeconomy market. Moreover, the implementation of biorefineries in different regions has the potential to add value to the specific crop residues produced in the region. In this review, several aspects of crop residue application in biorefineries are discussed, including the role of crop residues in the bioeconomy and circular economy concepts, the main technical aspects of crop residue conversion in biorefineries, the main crop residues generated in different regions of the world and their availability, the potential value-added bioproducts that can be extracted or produced from each crop residue, and the major advantages and challenges associated with crop residue utilization in biorefineries. Despite their potential, most biomass refining technologies are not sufficiently advanced or financially viable. Several technical obstacles, especially with regard to crop residue collection, handling, and pre-treatment, prevent the implementation of biorefineries on a commercial scale. Further research is needed to resolve these scale-up-related challenges. Increased governmental incentives and bioeconomic strategies are expected to boost the biorefinery market and the cost competitiveness of biorefinery products.

Frontiers of Information Technology & Electronic Engineering 2024, Volume 25, Issue 2,   Pages 286-307 doi: 10.1631/FITEE.2300453

Abstract: has recently emerged as a hot topic in research societies, industries, and governments because of its potential to integrate cutting-edge information technology and solve urgent challenges that modern cities face. For example, in the latest five-year plan, the Chinese government has highlighted the demand to empower management with new technologies such as big data and Internet of Things, for which is normally the crucial first step. While traditional static surveillance data on cities have been available for decades, this review reports a type of relatively new yet highly important urban data source, i.e., the big collected by devices with various levels of mobility representing the movement and distribution of public and private agents in the city. We especially focus on enabled by synthesizing the localization of hundreds of thousands of mobile software Apps using the Global Positioning System (GPS). This technique enjoys advantages such as a large penetration rate (~50% urban population covered), uniform spatiotemporal coverage, and high localization precision. We first discuss the pragmatic requirements for and the challenges faced. Then we introduce two suites of empowering technologies that help fulfill the requirements of (1) cybersecurity insurance for smart cities and (2) spatiotemporal modeling and visualization for , both via big . The main contributions of this review lie in the description of a comprehensive technological framework for and the demonstration of its feasibility via real-world applications.
