    Applications of additive manufacturing in construction industry: A literature review
    (Association for Industry, Engineering and Management Systems (AIEMS), 2020-06) Al Turk, Abdelhakim; Weheba, Gamal S.
    Additive manufacturing is the process where three-dimensional parts are constructed layer-by-layer based on their computer-aided design (CAD) models. AM has gained a strong reputation in the aerospace and medical industries, and its use is now considered revolutionary. In the past few years, the utilization of AM technology has been expanded and is now leading to breakthroughs in the construction industry. This paper provides a state-of-the-art review of the use, advantages, and limitations of AM in the construction industry. The review sheds light on the different AM techniques used and highlights contemporary projects and achievements in the construction industry.

    Addressing corrugated board warp with a 23 factorial design
    (Association for Industry, Engineering and Management Systems (AIEMS), 2020-06) Keyser, Robert S.; Jordan, Lois A.
    The corrugator is a machine that produces combined corrugated sheet stock from roll stock. A 23 factorial experiment was used to determine which factors and levels provide the optimal result - flat, rather than warped, sheet stock in a full-line box plant located in the Southeast. The factors include Edge Tension (T), Preheater Wrap Pressure (P), and Run Speed (S). The response variable is board warp, measured in 1/64ths of an inch. The two levels are indicated by (+) or (-) signs to indicate high and low levels, respectively. In a 23 factorial design, there are 8 treatment combinations and n = 20 samples of each combination of factors and levels were collected and analyzed using one replication for immediate use in a real-time production environment. The conclusion yielded the following best settings to produce flat 200#C sheet stock: loose tension, 25% pressure on the preheater wrap, and a run speed of 380 ft/min.

    Analytics, accounting and big data: enhancing accounting education
    (Association for Industry, Engineering and Management Systems (AIEMS), 2020-06) Augustine, Fred K., Jr.; Woodside, Joseph; Mendoza, Monica; Chambers, Valrie
    The role of Analytics and Big Data in business has been the subject of considerable research and discussion. Members of the accounting profession have recognized the importance of both and recognize that the emergence of these technologies require employees who possess a higher level of data analysis capabilities. Thus, industry is demanding that institutions of higher education place a greater emphasis on developing curricular elements, which will adequately address the needs of the ultimate consumers of these capabilities. This paper examines the data analysis skills relevant to accountants and how and where data analytics and big data have impacted undergraduate accounting education. This research examines the degree to which selected undergraduate Accounting programs have embraced Analytics and Big Data to the greatest extent and proposes a set of curricular elements the provide the appropriate level of learning within the current framework of undergraduate accounting education.

    OMIR event type and frequency at a collegiate flight program
    (Association for Industry, Engineering and Management Systems (AIEMS), 2020-06) Wheeler, Brooke; Redden, Kevin; Bonilla, Davor; Fox, Gregory; Silver, Isaac
    Safety is the priority in aviation; policies adopted by 14 CFR Part 141 Flight Schools aim to increase safety awareness while conducting flight operations. The additional evaluations through knowledge tests and check rides at each stage of flight training can may contribute to student stress. Collegiate Part 141 flight schools have students with increased workloads and stress from the combination of courses and flight training. This ex post facto research evaluated the types of events and the frequency of Operational Mishaps and Incident Reports (OMIRs) at a collegiate, Part 141 flight school in the southeastern US. The study reviewed all reports during a three-year period and classified them into four categories: Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) violation, Flight Operations Manual (FOM), safety concern, or miscellaneous. Reports were evaluated across four-week intervals of the fall and spring semesters. There was no statistical difference between the number of OMIRs submitted by 4- week interval during the semester. This indicated that OMIRs are submitted in a relatively constant quantity throughout the duration of each semester. There was a significant difference in number of OMIRs by event type. Most OMIRs were Flight Operations Manual violations or safety concerns. This is a positive outcome from a safety perspective because the most frequent reports were not violations of FARs. These results also indicated that pilots are actively participating in the safety management system, submitting reports, even for relatively minor concerns.
