Describes the evolution of performance measurement in four sections: recommendations, frameworks, systems, and inter-organisational performance measurement. Measurement begins with a recommendation, which is a piece of advice related to the measures or structure of performance measurement; frameworks can be dichotomised into a structural and procedural(More)
A force platform is a technical method of quantitatively assessing balance indirectly. The use of force platforms in physiotherapy departments has become more prominent over the last few years. However, the main drawback in the use of force platforms is the lack of comprehensive calibration procedures, which casts doubt on the results obtained with these(More)
Business process modelling is an essential part of developing an enterprise information system. There are many modelling methods with software support currently available on the market.

The scale and complexity of both hardware and software on large open source software systems such as Ranger make occurrence of faults and failures inevitable. What is not inevitable is that they should be allowed to go undetected, nor that diagnosis and recovery from failures should continue to be largely manual and effort intensive. This paper presents a(More)
Balance is the ability to maintain equilibrium while sitting or standing. There are a number of different methods which are used to assess balance: technical methods such as sway magnetometry, ataxia meter and force platforms, and clinical methods such as the functional reach test, Berg balance test and fall risk index. The most frequently used technical(More)
Existing web services specifications lack an appropriate semantic framework for the creation and operation of emerging manufacturing systems such as the supply chains and extended/virtual enterprises (EE/VE) in order to execute business processes over internet. Semantic web services (SWS) technology aims to add sufficient semantics to the specifications and(More)
