### INDIVIDUALIZATION OF MOTIVATION OF EMPLOYEES AS FACTOR INCREASING ORGANIZATIONAL PERFORMANCE

The levels of performance in the organization are considered in the paper. The problem of increasing the individual performance of staff as a basis for organizational effectiveness is updated. Directions of individualization of staff motivation in the context of organizational effectiveness are given, such as the system of key performance indicators (KPI), and grading system. The advantages of using the KPI system and grading in modern organizations are indicated. The use of grading for determining the basic part of wages and the KPI system for a variable is justified.

The paper is devoted to founding of various nontrivial estimates of the concentration function. The interest in this function is due to the fact that it is the most important tool for studying the properties of the convolutions of various probability distributions that appear in numerous applications. Some results obtained for this function in the one-dimensional case are generalized to multidimensional spaces in the presented paper. Thus, the well-known result of Enger from [1] is strengthened (see Theorem 2). In addition, it is shown that the estimate in Theorem 2 is unimprovable in the dimension of the space. The proofs of the main results are based on the use of the method of characteristic functions. The main difficulty is connected with the estimates of complex multidimensional integrals.

The productional and informational system model is considered, it is aimed at the achievement of a control decision. The peculiarity of the informational system lies in the fact that it has the property of behavior, i.e. allows to recognize a problem situation, to determine the most appropriate one from the behavior models and to activate the implementation of control decisions on the relevant contours of the production system. The algebraic system, allowing to determine the type of problem situation, the behavior model, the business process and the control object are presented. Based on the proposed model, a software has been developed automatically determining the control loop that should solve the problem situation, as well as define the centers of responsibility for which signals are sent for automatic or automated execution of the management decision.

In this paper, we discuss the possibility and conditions for the emergence of singularities in projections onto the plane of the daily coordinates of the Earth’s North Pole. Singular points on the graphs of the positions of the instantaneous pole of the Earth are considered as geometric shapes of projection on the plane of the smooth (quasiperiodic) process of motion of the instantaneous pole on the Earth’s surface with a certain ratio between the values of the external control parameters and the internal ones that determine the rotation of the Earth around its axis. The emergence of singular points is the result of a certain physical rearrangement in the oscillating system of the Earth and the geomagnetic field and atmosphere associated with it by the energy exchange processes.

Read More### PROBLEM OF THIN LIQUID LAYER DISTRIBUTION ON ANGLED SURFACE

The article analyzes some features of the thin layer motion of inviscid incompressible fluid flowing along an inclined surface in the approximation of the theory of “shallow water.” Based on the proposed approach, we studied the influence of the surface inclination angle on fluid dynamics. To simplify the process of obtaining solutions, a generalized self-similar scheme is introduced, when the form of the time component is adopted without specification. Proposed substitution allows us to obtain analytical solutions in a number of special cases. The choice of the terms of the equation for the transformation enables obtaining a sufficiently large number of different solutions depending on the number of terms in the equation. Comparison with approximate solutions can be used to determine the range of variation of the special parameters obtained by using the method. The results obtained may be of interest, for example, in selecting the angle of inclination of the walls of the ditch, intercepting rainwater flowing from the hill to the road or from the roadway to the ditch.

We conducted a review of the state of power conversion devices development. The reasons for the necessity to create domestic power switch drivers are justified. The main ways of solving this problem are outlined. Basic requirements to the set of functions that a modern driver of the power switch should support are formulated.

A new topology of the output stage of the driver is proposed. It provides control of the impedance of the recharge circuit of the input switch capacity at different stages of the charge-discharge processes. The advantages of this topology are shown when using the active clipping mode for inductive voltage ejections on a switch during its shutdown (Active Clamp).

Read More### MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF LEUKEMIA

We developed a mathematical model of leukemia on the basis of modern data on hematopoiesis in mammals. Three types of cells are considered in the model, one of which is leukemia. Interaction of cells is studied as a competition for the functional space of dividing cells. Leukemia cells are cells dividing at a higher rate than all the others. The model of replacement of leukemic cells with donor cells is considered as the introduction of more active cells than leukemia ones. The model is represented by the Cauchy problem for a system of ordinary differential equations. Violation of hematopoiesis functions is correlated with a change in the leading parameter, which transfers the system from a stable steady state to an unstable one.
