This article addresses the theoretical concept of economic security of the enterprise (ESE) and discusses its features in post-Soviet countries based on a review of the Ukrainian scientific literature. This study includes an explanation of the specific conditions of economic and social transformation as well as of the developments in post-Soviet economic science that led to the introduction of the term “economic security of the enterprise”. This research intends to explain the concept of ESE in post-Soviet economic thought and discusses its utility for different stakeholders. The main research questions are therefore: What are the approaches to a definition of ESE within the concept of ESE in Ukrainian economic thought? How can the main features of ESE be defined? What are the benefits of the concept of ESE for a firm's stakeholders? Our study is based on a qualitative content analysis of the Ukrainian economic literature considering ESE. We conducted a content analysis of the definitions of ESE presented in over 50 dissertations defended in Ukraine during the period 1999-2011. This analysis allows us to identify the distinctive features of the concept: ESE is presented as a generalizing concept, in which terms such as competitiveness, threats, and profitability point out only one aspect of the phenomenon neglecting others. The notion of economic security of the enterprise has a complex internal nature that includes a variety of structural interactions among internal elements of a firm and its external environment, and thus we suggest to define the notion of ESE via its static and dynamic dimensions. Being a broader concept than other widely applied concepts (such as Enterprise Risk Management), the concept of ESE can be of special interest for business managers as well as public authorities due to its ability to propose a solid foundation for economic security on local, regional and national levels. In this context, the economic security framework gives public authorities a basis for policy decisions regarding the future of enterprises. [less ▲]

Despite a significant progress achieved in the healthcare sector during last decades, we need to admit the fact that many urgent problems remain unsolved even in well developed countries. Along with other major factors, economic causes of these problems hold a prominent position. It is then necessary to think about a need of shifting from a view of hospitals as ever being institutions existing by default in any society to a view of hospitals as organisations with an incorporated economic mechanism, adapted to social changes and relevant economic risks. With this regard, this paper seeks to incorporate the concept of economic security of the hospital into Simons’ LOC model used in hospital management. We provide a brief overview of the concept of economic security of the organization. We adjust this concept for hospital management considering the healthcare system as an economic system and taking main problems of the hospital and interests of stakeholders in the core of strategy development. Further, we accommodate the concept with the levers of control. The result of the paper is a revised Simons’ LOC model which provides a theoretical framework for further research on hospital management and serves a modified management instrument. [less ▲]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the reproducibility of findings derived from a new iso-inertial dynamometer during bench press (BP) and squat (SQ) and to provide descriptive data for recreational athletes. A position transducer and accelerometer were combined to assess velocity and power during free weight lifting exercises. Simulated movement with a pulley system revealed the excellent technical consistency of the dynamometer. Sixteen male subjects participated in the study. Iso-inertial tests consisted of lifting as fast as possible four different relative loads (35, 50, 70, 90% 1RM in BP and 45, 60, 75, 90% 1RM in SQ). The test was repeated one week later. Analysis of variance revealed no significant variation between sessions or trials. Reproducibility was better in velocity than in power, although it remained fairly good in both exercises (coefficients of variation [CV] never exceeding 10%) except for the time to peak power parameter. Descriptive data confirmed the classical force-velocity and force-power relationships for BP and SQ. In conclusion, this study demonstrated reliable measurements in BP and SQ iso-inertial exercises. Monitoring force-velocity and force-power relationships offers an original functional approach in strength training supervision. [less ▲]

The reconstruction of a discretized random distributed loading, as the wind pressure from some measurement taps, is usually performed by simple or advanced interpolation between the nodes of the mesh. This results in an overestimation of the coherence of the loading, especially in the high frequency range where the loading typically shows less coherence. An expensive way to circumvent this issue is to make the mesh denser. This is however not always possible, in particular in experimental testing where there is usually a limited number of available measurement spots. The concept of numerical admittance is introduced in order to rectify this inaccurate estimation of the resulting loading in the high-frequency range. It is actually introduced as a legitimate way of reducing the loading in accordance with the looseness of the discretisation mesh. Another major advantage of the concept is the opportunity to determine adequately the mesh size independently from the correlation length scale. [less ▲]

This report presents a program for the complete design of a deep groove ball bearing which is submitted to a plane sollicitation. This programs includes a catalogue consultation and the assessment of the tolerances of both races. For these, the computation is based on the exact nonlinear formulation of the problem, and not on approximate values of the catalogues. In particular, it allows to find the infuence of the clearance on the stiffness of the bearing. The bending moment is taken in account. In order to solve the nonlinear equations of the theory, a Newton-Raphson procedure is introduced. In this problem, a proper choice of the starting point is of paramount importance, as the reference position is stiffness-free. This problem is dicussed in detail. The second part of this report presents the ROULBI program and comments its different steps. [less ▲]
