A CONCEPTUAL STUDY OF THE SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

Today the supply chain has evolved tremendously from a fixed job of a bridge between sales and production functions with a focus on raw material supply to product manufacturing lines and finish goods dispatch to the final consumer to an independent function with a separate hierarchy. The SCM focus has adopted the upgraded planning methods such as integrated S&OP and outsourced logistics. Further, the world has seen continuous wealth shift towards the rural areas over the past few years and the online product purchase is rapidly increasing due to the buyer’s trust in communication transparency and easy much option access. To adapt to these trends SCM requires being faster, granular, and precise.

The Supply chain efficiency can be increased by up-gradation with new technology and eliminating the waste in the process. We studied the step by step SCM 4.0 implementation process to achieve the SCM 4.0 application benefits like global inventory and lead time reduction with the help of digitized material planning, order fulfilment, and forecast accuracy. We have analyzed the key six value SCM 4.0 enablers as improvement levers that will generate a change in capital cost, manufacturing agility, and service are planning, physical flow, performance management, order management, collaboration, and strategy.

Further, We carried a pilot study on SCM 4.0 implementation with current state mapping of value chain identified the wastage like manual data capturing, manual planning based on gut filling, low service levels, and high inventory that can be prevented or eliminated by the effective SCM 4.0 application. Also, We noted that SCM 4.0 deployment face some problems like training needs and skilled talent, senior leadership involvement, change management, and small and medium business needs tailor-made solutions.

EXAMINATION OF CONCRETE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH WITH RICE HUSK ASH

Rice crop is largely harvested in Pakistan each year and produces huge amount of Rice Husk (RH), contaminating the environment following their removal as by-product in Food Industries. The ashes produced during the burning of Rice Husk are known as Rice Husk Ash (RHA). RHA is capable of modifying its natural properties to Pozzolanic properties at high temperatures. This research paper explicitly demonstrates astonishing results of testing concrete mix samples with intervention of RHA as partial substitution of cement in with varying proportion under different curing conditions (Water, Sulphuric acid and Hydrochloric acid) that one may evaluate concrete compressive strength.

USE OF LIPID LOWERING AGENTS AND RISK OF GALLSTONE FORMATION

Abstract: Disease of gallbladder is commonly manifested as gallstone and gallbladder cancer. It is a common and costly clinical condition in the adult population of Pakistan. Gallstone is a disease which is unease serious health for human being, and millions of people are affected throughout the world and in Pakistan recently increasing in quantitative number of gallstone cases in all over Pakistan.

Methodology: The sample was constituted of total 370 patients. 100 cases and 270 controls were selected for this study the patient ratio was 1:2. For the purpose of conducting a case-control study, sample was divided into two groups i.e. one for cases and the other for control. Self-administered questionnaire was used to obtain data from each case and control. To minimize the selection bias the sample was collected through random sampling method.

Findings: In the risk factors included age, female gender, and obesity. the median age in women’s for gallstone disease was 58 years (68.8%) while for male population it was less then female. current statin users were (4.8%) in control and (5.4%)in cases. the former user of statin was  (1.8%) and gallstone disease was (2.3%). This study supported the association between the use of statin and gallstone formation (Erichsen, et al. 2010).The risk of gallstone formation increases with age, change in diet (high calorie food) or use of drugs (lipid lowering agents) being female 87% cases, and being married 78% cases of gallstone were found.

EFFECT OF PANDEMIC COVID-19 ON ECONOMIC CRISIS AND HEALTH ISSUES

We are facing a global crisis- one that is killing people, spreading human suffering and upending people’s lives. But this is more than a health crisis. It is human, economic and social crisis. The only way is to begin strategizing about the actions a country must take now to emerge from the crisis for the better. Social distancing, self-isolation and travel restrictions have lead to a reduced workforce in economic sectors and caused many jobs to be lost. Schools have closed down, and the need for commodities and manufactured products has decreased, need for medical supplies have significantly increased.
