This paper presents a new control chart for monitoring the post optimality of a designed distribution network in a supply chain. The proposed control chart alarms as soon as neither the location nor the capacity nor the number of the current distribution centers are not optimal any longer. The control chart ensures the distribution network satisfies the customers' demands at minimum total costs over time. In fact, it monitors the optimality of the solution today for the problem tomorrow. [less ▲]

For climatic stress detection and monitoring in the Heilongjiang Province, north-eastem China, an indicator on the interannual vegetation state was extracted from the AVHRR Pathfinder image set (1981-2000) and compared to the rainfall variations over the growing season (June to August). The results show that the vegetation status does not closely depend on rainfall variations in this region. Temperatures, which showed a rapid augmentation in the northern high latitudes since the early 1980s, seem to be a more crucial limiting factor for vegetation growth. Rapid land cover change and large natural disasters are also likely to impact the relationship between rainfall and vegetation. [less ▲]

Wallonia (Southern Region of Belgium) has implemented the Nitrates Directive by designating four vulnerable zones (now 42% of the territory) and introducing a first Action programme at the start of November 2002 and a second one in 2007. The Action programmes entail various means of reducing the risks of the pollution of water by nitrate: (a) struggle against nitrate losses in fields using a range of good agricultural practices, including certain restrictions on the use of fertilisers (quantities, spreading periods, soil conditions, etc.), (b) keeping a balance on each farm between the organic nitrogen produced and spreading capacities on agricultural land, (c) adapting storehouses for livestock effluent to a capacity of 6 months and (d) promoting transfers of livestock effluent between farms in excess balance and farms which still have a way of using it on their land. The paper presents the principle of “soil nitrate residue” measurements (APL in French) that permits a yearly monitoring of the farming practices and constitutes a self-evaluation tool for the farmers. The paper also introduces the reference model EPICgrid dedicated to nitrogen transfer modelling in the context of the Walloon region. Following the first comparison exercise, these tools are consistent and complementary approaches to help farmers and authorities in nitrogen management. In the context of the Walloon region, dealing with deep groundwater bodies, fast indicators of potentially leachable nitrogen and nutrient fate modelling are the most practical way of assessing effectiveness of the EU nitrate directive action programmes.

The monitoring of two controlled landfills in Tunisia was carried out for about 10 years by CITET and CWBI. Both landfills were managed by classical methodology i.e. disposal, compaction and, if any, biogas and leachate extraction and treatment. One of them is located near Tunis and the other near Sousse with a warmer climate. They received more than 6,000 and 350 thousand cubic metre of MSW respectively from the two cities. Solid samples were collected by boring at different depths up to 18 m. They were analysed for dry weight and for total organic carbon, nitrogen and (hemi-) cellulose. The boreholes were equipped with 200 mm perforated PEHD tubes for further biogas and leachate sampling and analyses (COD, VFA, CH4 content, …) at different seasons. The results indicate an efficient mesophilic anaerobic digestion in both landfills. The high dry weight content (70 – 92%) of 13 solid samples collected in Sousse landfill contrasts however with the high leachate production in the Tunis landfill, filling about completely the majority of boreholes. The results of this monitoring confirm the trends formerly described about biological activity and environmental impact of landfills in Tunisia. Moreover a 200 L pilot-scale anaerobic digester was operated for about 3 years with solid wastes from Tunis landfill to assess the evolution of moisture content and organic matter. [less ▲]

Measuring performances of health professionals and health facilities is a difficult task. However, with the appropriate information management tools, a lot of useful information can be collected from routine data registration activities. Situated in the capital of Rwanda, the Central Kigali University Teaching Hospital developed in January 2006 its electronic patient record using both ICD10 and ICPC2 codes for the structured registration of diseases and procedures. In order to enable synoptic data analysis, individual codes have been grouped into a set of 174 disease groups (KHIRI Pathology Group Set –KPGS). To assess the activities and performances of the different clinical departments, outcome data were analyzed following a number of essential criteria: the caseload, the LOS (length of stay) load and the in-hospital mortality load. A total number of 27784 patients were admitted during the study period. On the 27784 patients a total of respectively 30609 and 29447 diagnoses were recorded in ICPC2 and ICD10. The total of hospitalization days was 395256. 2759 patients died over the 3 years study period. Four ICPC classes covered more than 10% of the encodings each: A (general) 5649, D (digestive system) 6040, L (locomotors system) 3297 and R (respiratory system) counted for 4026 registrations. Comparable results could be obtained in the corresponding ICD classes A+B, K, M+S-T and J. Linking ICD10 and ICPC2 codes to global patient data clearly enables the physicians and the hospital management to produce comparable, standardized and internationally valuable evaluations of the hospital activities and trends. It also opens the perspective of fixing objective priorities in patient management and provides an interesting starting point for comparing health professionals’ clinical performances in a standardized way.

Virtually all cells have transferrin receptors (a transmembrane glycoprotein) on their surface but in a normal adult, 80% of them are in the erythroid marrow. Some of them are lost into the circulation where they can be measured by immuno-assays. A direct and highly significant correlation exists between serum transferrin receptor level and erythron transferrin uptake in humans. The measurement of serum transferrin receptor has wide clinical applications for the quantitation of erythropoiesis. It can be used to study erythropoiesis in situations in which ferrokinetics is not acceptable such as pregnancy. It is particularly useful for serial studies, e.i., for monitoring the recovery of erythropoiesis after stem cell transplantation or after treatment with erythropoietin. Combined with the determination of serum erythropoietin, both evaluated in relation to the degree of anemia, they provide a physiological approach to the diagnosis of anemia. Thus, the simultaneous determination of hematocrit, reticulocytes, serum transferrin receptor and serum erythropoietin has high discriminatory value in distinguishing between a defect in erythroid proliferation, maturation or red cell survival. It is also particularly useful for detecting the presence of multiple mechanisms of anemia in the same patient. [less ▲]

Over the past two decades, major advances have been made in the number and range of agents available for the treatment of osteoporosis, all with proven anti-fracture efficacy. Unfortunately, compliance with these treatments is not optimal, and a number of patients could be considered as non-responders. Consequently, monitoring anti-osteoporotic therapy could be part of successful osteoporosis management. Currently, no formal well-accepted clinical practice guidelines are available for monitoring anti-osteoporosis therapies. Changes in bone mineral density and bone turnover markers, while on therapy, have potential value in monitoring treatment but their assessment and, consequently, their benefits could be limited by metrological and clinical issues. Moreover, their effectiveness is probably drug dependant. Recommendation for the standardisation of the methodology when analysing the potential relevance of tools for the monitoring of osteoporosis therapy is needed. [less ▲]

Since the end of 2000, a continuous sampling to monitor PCDDs and PCDFs emission was implemented on the 11 municipal waste incineration ovens in Walloon Region, to check the compliance with the EU emission limit value, 0.1 TEQ ng/Nm³. For this purpose, uncertainty estimation is one of the most crucial points for decision making. The sampling and analytical uncertainty was estimated by two different ways: 1. Identification and quantification of the major contributions through QA/QC data (type A evaluation) or by other sources (type B evaluation), 2. Direct assessment through specific duplicate measurements. Both ways were found to give results in good agreement, with an extended uncertainty of about 30 to 40%, depending on the congener, with a coverage factor k=2. [less ▲]
