The International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) decision to require aviation organizations to adopt Safety Management Systems poses a major problem especially for small and medium sized aviation companies. The complexity of regulations overstrains the aviation stakeholders who seek to fully advantage from them but have no clear guidance. The aim of the book is to show the implementation of such a new system with pragmatic effort in order to gain a gradation for smaller operators. This approach should illustrate the leeway in order to adapt the processes and to show the interfaces between Corporate Risk Management and Safety Management. The book shows how to build a system with reasonable effort, appropriate to the size and complexity of the specific operator. It also gives inputs on the key aspects and how to effectively operate such a system with the various interfaces. Furthermore, the book highlights the importance of Corporate Risk Management independent of Safety Management Systems based on ICAO.

Data Science gets thrown around in the press like it's magic. Major retailers are predicting everything from when their customers are pregnant to when they want a new pair of Chuck Taylors. It's a brave new world where seemingly meaningless data can be transformed into valuable insight to drive smart business decisions.

But how does one exactly do data science? Do you have to hire one of these priests of the dark arts, the "data scientist," to extract this gold from your data? Nope.

Data science is little more than using straight-forward steps to process raw data into actionable insight. And in Data Smart, author and data scientist John Foreman will show you how that's done within the familiar environment of a spreadsheet. 

Why a spreadsheet? It's comfortable! You get to look at the data every step of the way, building confidence as you learn the tricks of the trade. Plus, spreadsheets are a vendor-neutral place to learn data science without the hype. 

But don't let the Excel sheets fool you. This is a book for those serious about learning the analytic techniques, the math and the magic, behind big data.

 Each chapter will cover a different technique in a spreadsheet so you can follow along:

Mathematical optimization, including non-linear programming and genetic algorithms Clustering via k-means, spherical k-means, and graph modularity Data mining in graphs, such as outlier detection Supervised AI through logistic regression, ensemble models, and bag-of-words models Forecasting, seasonal adjustments, and prediction intervals through monte carlo simulation Moving from spreadsheets into the R programming language

You get your hands dirty as you work alongside John through each technique. But never fear, the topics are readily applicable and the author laces humor throughout. You'll even learn what a dead squirrel has to do with optimization modeling, which you no doubt are dying to know.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: In den letzten Jahren ist das Qualitätsbewußtsein der Unternehmen am Markt stark angestiegen. Zum einen ist dies auf die schon einige Jahre anhaltende schlechte Konjunkturlage zurückzuführen, zum anderen aber auch auf die starke Konkurrenz im wirtschaftlichen Wettbewerb. Wenn die Ideen für neue Produkte fehlen oder neue Innovationen aus finanziellen Gesichtspunkten nicht machbar oder rentabel sind, muß die Qualität der vorhandenen Produktpalette gesteigert werden, um konkurrenzfähig zu bleiben. Viele Unternehmen versuchen daher, durch die Einführung eines sogenannten Qualitätsmanagement-Systems nach der Normenreihe ISO 9000 ff. ihre Wettbewerbsfähigkeit zu steigern. Die Grundgedanken der geistigen Väter dieser Normen waren jedoch ganz andere: Zum einen soll Qualität für den Kunden klar erkennbar sein. Dem Kunden soll durch ein zertifiziertes Qualitätsmanagement-System klar dokumentiert werden, daß Qualität produziert wird. Das geht sogar soweit, daß der Kunde sich davon beim Lieferanten persönlich überzeugen kann, indem er sogenannte externe Audits bei ihm durchführt. Der andere, und wahrscheinlich viel wichtigere Gedanke war jedoch daß die Qualität nicht auf dem einmal erreichten und durch ein Zertifikat belegbaren Stand stehenbleiben soll, sondern daß die Qualität ständig fortentwickelt wird, daß das System "lebt" und ständig weiter vorangetrieben wird in Richtung "Total Quality Management" (TQM). Über die Normen der Reihe ISO 9000 ff. wird derzeit immer noch viel gesprochen, obwohl es im Vergleich zu den vergangenen Jahren bedeutend ruhiger geworden ist. Die Zielsetzung der Arbeit ist zum einen aufzuzeigen, was ISO 9000 eigentlich ist, welche Anforderungen die Norm an einzelne Bezugsgrößen stellt. Zum anderen soll exemplarisch die praktische Vorgehensweise der Einführung eines Qualitätsmanagement-Systems aufgezeigt werden. Schließlich wird anhand einer empirischen Erhebung überprüft, ob die im Einzelfall gemachten Erfahrungen auch auf andere Unternehmen zutreffen. Die Normen der Reihe ISO 9000 ff. umfassen mehr als die drei zertifizierbaren Normen zu Qualitätsmanagement-Systemen (9001-9003). Es gibt weiterhin Normen, die Leitfäden zur Umsetzung der zertifizierbaren Normen darstellen und Normen, hauptsächlich aus der 8000-er und 10000-er-Reihe, die sich mit Begriffsdefinitionen und Anwendungen einzelner Elemente der 3 zertifizierbaren Normen beschäftigen. Da eine Untersuchung all dieser Normen zu weit führen würde, [...]
