Article: A computerized method for delay risk assessment based on fuzzy set theory using MS Project™
Journal: KSCE Journal of Civil Engineering
Authors: Budayan, C., Dikmen, I., Birgonul, M. T., and Ghaziani, A.
Year of Publication: 2018
Synopsis: According to Budayan, Dikmen, Birgonul and Ghaziani (2018), the Ms-Project software can be helpful for defining the influence of the risk management. The analysis of the fuzzy set theory would align with the development of the successive management of the activities and implying the innovative and improved functional management using successful development of project schedule using Ms-Project. The risk assessment is helpful for enduring the analysis of the factors for developing the successful integration and alignment of the cohesive project integration. The analysis would also be helpful for taking care of the risk assessment and development of the factors for the integration management. The integration would be aligned for the management of the successful formation and introducing the utilization and formation.
Article: How does risk management influence production decisions? Evidence from a field experiment
Journal: The Review of Financial Studies (Vol. 30; Issue no. 6)
Authors: Cole, S., Giné, X., and Vickery, J.
Year of Publication: 2017
Synopsis: According to Cole, Gine and Vickery (2017), risk management holds an integral role in defining the management of the successful management and integration of the factors. The production decisions for the project can be effectively dealt with the innovative and improved analysis model. The risk management operations would be helpful for taking care of the factors for the implementation and utilization factors. The innovation would be more effective for the formation of the impressive management and development. The analysis of the factors for the development and alignment of the factors has been largely helpful for integrating the listing of the factors taking care of the improved analysis and development. The easing of the management model would be implied with the consideration and utilization of the successive development model.
Article: Between cost and benefit: investigating effects of cost management control systems on cost efficiency and organisational performance
Journal: Journal of Management Control (Vol. 29; Issue no. 1)
Authors: Diefenbach, U., Wald, A., and Gleich, R.
Year of Publication: 2018
Synopsis: According to Diefenbach, Wald and Gleich (2018), the consideration of the factorial representation of the development model would align with the consideration to the formation and listing the innovative management of the factors. The successful management of the factors would help the organization in taking care of the innovation and development. The cost analysis and the management of the resources act as a major factor for integrating the utilization and development. The completion of the successful project completion would be aligned with the management of the successful cost factors. The consideration for the efficiency analysis of the costing factor for the project is aligned with the utilization of the improved functional development.
