Innovative solutions applied in tools for determining coal mechanical proprerties

DOI 10.12914/MSPE-02-04-2015
Abstract: Due to very specific conditions of work of machines and equipment used in coal mining industry, the manner of their selection, taking into account the changing working conditions, is very important. Appropriate selection influences the increased durability and reliability of machines and equipment, which translates into the economic effects achieved. As the issue of measurement and evaluation of coal mechanical properties (including coal workability measurement) is of great importance, previously applied methods for coal workability evaluation have been shortly reviewed. The importance of the problem is confirmed by the number of methods developed in various research centers all over the world. The article presents new instruments for determining and evaluating the mechanical properties of coal material (workability). The instruments have been developed in Poland and the author of this article is their co-inventor. The construction, principle of operation and innovative character of solutions applied in the instruments have been presented.
Key words: workability, measurement instruments, measurement methods, experimental research

It systems supporting waste management in communities - an overview of innovative functions

DOI 10.12914/MSPE-03-04-2015
Abstract: The aim of this article was to review the most used systems supporting waste management in communities of the provinces of Silesia regarding to innovativeness of the functions offered within them. On the market there can be distinguished many systems dedicated to communities, which more or less are able to meet the demands of their users. Many of them only, in a small area, supports the management process of the waste system, offering only functions related to the accounting and finance service, or only creating reports. It is difficult to find software that would allow communities a comprehensive way for efficient and effective management, and would improve communication between all entities involved in the system. To meet market realities and requirements of users, software producers need to continuously improve innovation of their products.

Quality policy in the quality management system

DOI 10.12914/MSPE-05-04-2015
Abstract: The article describes the problems of one of the key elements of a quality management system which is the quality policy (QP). The quality policy is an element that determines how the quality management is managed in the organization.

In the first part of the article the essence and the importance of quality policy for effective quality management is described. In the second part of the article there is a thorough description of a specially developed procedure for the establishment, implementation and monitoring of quality policy. The following procedure is based on years of experience of the author supported by the results of research, which aim was to create practices in the implementation and monitoring of quality policy in several business organizations. The approach presented in this article procedure is designed to assist managers in the development, implementation and monitoring of policy quality. The approach described as proper to the issue of the quality policy management staff will help in creating intelligent quality management system (IQMS). System, which will focus on permanent improvement based on the knowledge generated in the process of monitoring the implementation of quality policy.

The effect of implementation maintenance cards in performance of machines in selected production company

DOI 10.12914/MSPE-06-04-2015
Abstract: Intelligent development should become an inherent part of the policy of each enterprise which wants to develop and maintain its position on the competitive market. The article presents investigations related to the implementation of one of Total Productive Maintenance system elements. Reasons for introducing a new procedure for circulating information about machine inspections and overhauls planned, the major element of which are work sheets for key machines taking part in the production process, have been presented. The effectiveness of the new procedure was subjected to analysis by comparing particular machines’ work times and downtimes before and after the implementation of new procedures. The conducted research revealed an increased effectiveness of machines’ work, which resulted from shortened down-times, especially the duration of a failure.

Economic aspects of preparing the production of a new product

DOI 10.12914/MSPE-08-04-2015
Abstract: Implementation of works on preparing production of new product should be justified by the positive evaluation of purposefulness, and structural, technological, organizational feasibility, as well as economic efficiency. The results of the latest evaluation are critical. Preparation of production of new product, even it is expedient and feasible, it should not be implemented if it is economically inefficient or has high risk of failure. In the article set out guidelines for the evaluation of economic efficiency and risk according to the features which are characteristic for preparation of production of new product. These features are related to the scope of work of construction, technological and organizational preparation, their duration and time of product life, as well as capital expenditure.
Key words: preparing the production of new product, evaluation of economic effectiveness and risk
