Development of R&D potential of enterprises with the use of eu funds, as a way supporting smart specialisation

Abstract: Smart specialization should contribute to the transformation of the national economy through its modernization, structural transformation, diversification of products and services and creating innovative socio-economic solutions supporting transformation towards resource-efficient economies, including natural resources. It is based on the use of unique natural resources of regions, connecting various branches, using innovative technological solutions. In the paper, there is presented how to effectively use EU funds to increase research and development potential, on the example of the automotive company. The authors attempt to analyse factors that affect the growth of research and development capital of a company and the way in which goals can be achieved. Conclusions from the analysis may be a guidance for the others (businesses), how the company is developing its research and development potential, while making the process of implementing innovations innovative, using the available EU funds.

Safety management in food production to improve the product quality

Abstract: In this paper the new idea of safety management in food production is presented. Legal regulations on food production and food trade including legal regulation imposing the obligation to implement are described. The obligatory and non-obligatory food health safety and food quality management systems in the food industry are presented. Also the new idea based on the principles of risk analysis implementation and description of risk analysis elements such as risk assessment, risk management and risk communication, and connections between them. Article provides explanation of all important terms connected with risk analysis. Food safety management is to not only take care of the quality of the product in industry, but also ensure the maintenance of product safety at the time of consumption. In order to protect the health of the consumer in the world are increasingly set up Appropriate Level of Protection (ALOP) (expressed for instance as a numbers of illnesses in a population per year). The current Risk Analysis, it is proposed that, when deemed appropriate, competent authorities can formulate a so-called Food Safety Objective (FSO). FSOs and POs (Performance Objective) are new concepts that have been introduced to further assist government and industry in communicating and complying with public health goals. A prominent part of the risk analysis is microbiological risk assessment (MRA), the process of assessing and characterising the risk posed by a hazard in a food within a certain population. The risk analysis as a new ways for food safety have been developed. Risk assessment of microbiological hazards in foods is now a well-recognised and accepted approach within food safety risk management. In the future, according to circumstances and availability of data, the coexistence of qualitative and quantitative risk assessment is expected as well as the one of hazard and risk focused approaches to risk management.

Process improvement of the production of plastic bags by using selected methods and tools of quality engineering

Abstract: The article presents an analysis of the manufacturing process of plastic bags using selected methods and tools of quality engineering such as: the FMEA method and the Ishikawa diagram. Based on the analysis conducted the most important of the problems which require preventive and improvement measures were identified. First, improvement and correction measures should be applied to the “bags sticking together and too little antiblock additive in the manufacturing process” and “lack of norms and regulations pertaining to the plastic foil’s technical parameters and the methods of their control” faults.

Methods of increasing customer satisfaction in a production company

Abstract: Companies that wish to maintain their position in the market must constantly seek new ways of convincing their customers that the products or services they offer meet the customer’s quality expectations. One of the best ways to guarantee customer satisfaction is to ensure the highest quality of the services and products offered. Customer satisfaction surveys have significant benefits, the first of which is providing information, which allows for improvements to the products manufactured and services provided. Another positive aspect is showing the client their the manufacturer or service provider wants to know their opinion so as to better meet the needs. The article presents a method for conducting a customer satisfaction survey in a selected production company along with its results.

Concept of microtools based on the relational data model used to support the process of nonconformity analysis for rolled products

Abstract: The aim of this article has been to propose a tool developed in accordance with a concept referred to as “Microtools based on the relational data model” used to support the process of nonconformity analysis for rolled products. The first part of the paper provides a discussion on the analysis itself, and individual types of reports created in the process have been identified. Based on a problem analysis, a specific data structure has been proposed for the tool in question. The entities identified within this structure have been characterised, and the links functioning between them have been illustrated using an adequate entity relationship diagram. Another section of the paper is focused on implementation of the entities in the tool in a spreadsheet, followed by presentation and discussion of selected examples of solutions applied for purposes of automatic generation of pre-defined reports. The target functionality assumed for the tool has been attained using built-in spreadsheet features without being forced to create a code in any programming language.

Stocktaking of innovative energy waste recyckling technologies

Abstract: The purpose of this article is an inventory of innovative technologies for the recovery of energy waste – waste from the processes of combustion of fuels and technologies used for flue gas desulphurisation in power plants and/or electrical power and heating plants. A large amount of waste is still deposited in landfills or stored (annually even 40% approx.), which exposes them to loss their properties and thus – limits their possible future development in the industry. Industries such as mining, construction and road construction have used the raw material potential of energy waste for many years. However, with the advancement of technology, more innovative forms and possibilities of using energy waste arise, and finding new and newer directions of their development becomes necessary. Thanks to new technologies used in the fuel combustion process (enforced by legal regulations and environmental exacerbations), the generated waste will gain new properties. This will allow them to be better developed in such industries as agriculture, nanomaterials or environmental protection, where the share of all generated energy waste has so far been only about 10%, and used in other industries.

Analysis and improvement of chemical composition of metal for improvement of car supply characteristics

Abstract: Some of the fuses produced by Tenneco Automotive undergo rapid corrosion. Muffler components are supplied in the form of pipes made of ferritic steel X2CrTi12 (1.4512). Pipes come from two sources. The chemical composition tests showed differences in the composition of the alloys used to make the pipes. The paper presents the process of analysis of chemical composition of sheet metal for the purpose of improving the performance characteristics of automotive parts, such as silencers. The influence of the alloying element – titanium on the occurrence and the course of the corrosion process in high alloy steels – stainless steel, where welded joints were studied was also investigated.
