Assessment The goal of this paper is to present and evaluate the latest trends in the cargo handling equipment (CHE) industry, aimed at mitigating the environmental impact of container terminal operations and contributing to the sustainability of ports. The most common machines for handling containers are described and dealt with separately, with a focus on electric CHE, usually referred to as 'zero emission' CHE. In a separate chapter, recommendations on methodologies suitable for investigation of the environmental footprint of CHE without on-site measuring are reviewed. The life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology as a tool for comparison of conventional and 'zero emission' technology is emphasised with examples. The conventional diesel rubber-tired gantry (RTG) crane and utility tractor rig (UTR) are compared with an electric RTG and UTR using an LCA approach. © 2013 Journal of Mechanical Engineering.

This paper presents development of model for interoperable e-payment systems based on ontologies and REA (ISO/IEC 15944-4:2007) ontological system structure. The study discusses referent models for information exchange and global standards for financial industry. Relations and interactions among payment systems of legal and physical entities on one side, and payment system of central bank on the other can be managed through standardized system structure, i.e. model and description of payment systems behaviour regardless of payment instrument that initiated transaction. The paper describes different components of interoperable systems: database objects, procedures, business logic objects, model of data for determining IO components, and user interface control.

We examined the health status of 27 European Union countries by employing statistical I-distance method on various health indicators. Results showed that Ireland tops the list of EU "healthiest countries", while Sweden and Finland are just a small step behind. On the other hand, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland and Romania are at the bottom of the list. Further on, I-distance method has provided information as to which input variables are crucial for determining a country's health system performance. We emphasize importance of evaluating health system performances and determining key health indicators.

Crop insurance differs from other types of insurance coverage. It provides insurance protection for food production, which, being one the preconditions for survival of humanity, has been exposed to numerous devastating natural risks to a considerable extent. Due to its importance, crop insurance has been the subject of various scientific studies, so the literature from this area is extensive. Unlike many other products, the emerging countries are major food producers. That is why the open issues regarding crop insurance are of immense importance to them, too. Serbia is among the countries that have extremely good preconditions for food production. In this paper, the level of development of Serbian crop insurance has been estimated by using the indicators such as coverage of agricultural land by insurance protection, value of production on the insured land, written premium, damaged land, the amount of incurred claims, and loss ratio. The achievements in this line of insurance have also been compared with certain European countries, the majority of which is still undergoing transition, like Serbia. The values of nearly all indicators point to extremely poor development of crop insurance in Serbia. Both the state and the insurance companies should take key role in improving the current situation, which has also been the case in the more developed countries. The analysis conducted in this paper indicates that the state should provide general preconditions for better utilization of insurance, particularly premium subsidies. It is up to the insurance companies to apply the code of practice as consistently as possible, including the state of the art achievements in crop insurance worldwide. © 2014, Bulgarian Journal of Agricultural Science.

The purpose of insurance is to provide security for the clients and its partners, by perfectly and responsibly understand, manage, monitor and carry the risk. As a powerful motor of global industry, insurance also have a potential to contribute enhancement of society, economy and governance, with strong positive influence on the environment. Sustainable insurance is a strong commitment of the insurance sector to recognize the sustainable values and determination to integrate these values in their strategy. In the new way of looking to the future, principals of insurance sector are in the best position to initiate and to assist in resolving complex global challenges-climate change issues and impoverishment of natural resources. In this paper will be discussed about the auto Telematics Usage Based Insurance products. These products are promoted by the insurance sector in accordance with natural progress of society and legal framework, evolution of technology and changes in demands. They can be classified as perspective solutions for sustainable insurance, because they directly affect environmental, safety, energy and resources saving, and overall social improvement issues.

In any machining process, it is most important to determine the optimal settings of machining parameters aiming at reduction of production costs and achieving the desired product quality. This paper discusses the use of Taguchi method for minimizing the surface roughness in turning polyethylene. The influence of four cutting parameters, cutting speed, feed rate, depth of cut, and tool nose radius on average surface roughness (R a) was analyzed on the basis of the standard L27 Taguchi orthogonal array. The experimental results were then collected and analyzed with the help of the commercial software package MINITAB. Based on the analysis of means (ANOM) and analysis of variance (ANOVA), the optimal cutting parameter settings are determined, as well as level of importance of the cutting parameters. © 2012 Published by Faculty of Engineering.

Supply chain management is a discipline dealing with organization, coordination, and optimization of relations within supply chains. Complexity and dynamics of supply chains are not always proportional to their reliability, and supply chain risk management becomes a very important tool in minimizing risk and uncertainties caused by, or impacting on, logistics-related activities or resources in the supply chain. Because risk modeling presents a very important segment of risk management, the paper includes a description of the main characteristics of supply chains and a model for risk assessment based on the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP) methods. The main intention of the research presented here is to propose approaches based on application of the AHP and FAHP methods which are used as a tool for ranking supply chain risk categories, determining its share in total risk, and as a method for the supply chain risk assessment. The proposed approach is based on the experience and the knowledge of experts from insurance companies which are professionally engaged in the process of risk assessment, and possibility of its application is tested on a numerical example. © 2013 © 2013 Taylor & Francis.
