Observed meteorological data demonstrates that temperature has increased by 0.74 °C in the last hundred years with the bulk of the warming occurring in the last 50 years. This paper examines the impact of climate change on five major crops in the former state of Andhra Pradesh using district level panel data for the period 1981-2010. Analysis of data shows that crop yields are significantly impacted by climate for rice, tobacco and groundnut. Crops grown in rabi are more susceptible to changes in climate than those in kharif, while drought crops like jowar are found to withstand changes in climate better than others. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

Day by day, Cloud computing is becoming a very promising computing platform for various applied areas of computing including science, engineering and business. A Cloud infrastructure is consisting of multiple distributed and heterogeneous resources. The notion of a Cloud has existed in one form or another for some time now. But due to the recent advances in virtualization technologies and ICT enabled business, this concept has became more appealing today. Clouds computing aim to deliver more economical solutions to both consumers and providers. The minimization of energy consumption plays a crucial role in the context of the economical solution for computing. Energy usage in Cloud computing has yielded many other concerns like carbon emissions and system reliability. Global warming due to carbon emission is the main concern in present day computation. This paper discusses the various elements of Clouds, which contribute to the energy consumption and carbon emissions. Toward the end, this paper also discusses the solutions to minimize the carbon emission. © 2012 Praise Worthy Prize S.r.l. - All rights reserved.

Technology is major stimulus for change and is imbibed in various forms; especially in the field of medical devices and bio-medical instruments used in life and death situations. Cardiotocograph (CTG), a foetal heart rate and uterine contraction monitoring and measurement machine, is a valuable tool in the process of childbirth. The Quality Function Deployment (QFD) is an engineering technique with the number one priority being to satisfy the customer. The aim of using QFD in this paper is to highlight the limitations and complexities of the present instrument. The paper attempts to first discuss out the operational details of the instrument along with a brief review of the relevant literature. Following this, its functional analysis is carried out through QFD - a TQM tool. The resultant outcome enlists CTG functions with their Raw Weight and Priority Score. A detailed theoretical analysis of results pinpoints basic functional limitation of exiting machine.

Continuity and change are key paradigms of strategic thinking. Most of the literature has focused on strategic change and gradual transformation. Dealing with flexibility, continuity and change has been an area of growing interest to researchers and business organisations to cope with the uncertainty. Outbound automotive supply chain, involving large dealer network, third party logistics and multimode transportation, has become very complex. Vehicle recall, hence, reverse supply chain, has now become common and needs to be included in any strategy for outbound supply chain. This research work focuses on study of outbound supply chain of the largest automotive company in India and understanding how they are coping up with the forces of continuity and change. Based on this research, the aim is to develop a flexible strategic framework for effectively managing forces of continuity and change in outbound supply chains, which can be applied to other similar organisations.

Short-term approaches or patch working are the predominant modes of solving process-related problems in organizations. As a result, problems recur at regular intervals and inhibit their smooth functioning. Organizational leaders have adopted various quality initiatives to produce sustainable change, but the existing literature suggests that many of them have met with limited success. The 'A3 Process', adapted from Toyota Motor Corporation, has been proposed as a pragmatic problem-solving technique for creating sustainable organizational change. Observing, drawing iconic sketches, discussing with other stakeholders, and experimenting has helped each stakeholder gain a deeper, contextualized understanding of the problem. These activities influenced knowledge validation and/or knowledge creation, both instrumental in transforming the stakeholder's passive mindset to a collaborative and active mindset. This article presents one of the many applications of the A3 Process that produced enduring change in a health care environment. © 2012 SAGE Publications.

Purpose: The paper aims to document the findings of an expert survey in the organic food category in India. It seeks to highlight the relative importance attached by the experts to key explanatory variables in the consumers' purchase process of organic food. It attempts to integrate with the relevant consumer survey findings published in India in recent times in organic food category. Design/methodology/approach: The list of experts was prepared by including regular and well-known speakers in different agri enclaves and summits and who are members of different food industry bodies. Experts were contacted through judgmental sampling method. Feedback on the expert questionnaires was collected from July to October 2007 from 33 highly knowledgeable senior experts primarily through face-to-face personal surveys and through e-mail surveys. Findings: Importance placed on health motivation has the highest average rating and is one of the lowest standard deviations among the explanatory variables in the expert survey. Experts also rate the importance of the three mentioned attitudes (about conviction about utility of organic food, reputation of store and certification process-related information), organic food-specific consumer innovativeness, organic food-specific consumer opinion leadership, word of mouth (WOM) (activity), WOM (praise) and affective commitment about the store to be high in the consumers' purchase process. Originality/value: The novelty of the paper lies in the fact that it addresses the key issues facing the organic food category in India from an expert survey point of view. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
