    Get PDF
    The rapid transformation of Kuala Lumpur conurbation has seen a rise in the demand for private vehicle ownership among commuters, thus leading to an increase in the overall level of congestion within the city center. Towards reducing such issues and focusing on the significance of travel demand management, this study examined the willingness of private vehicle users in using the park and ride facilities. A convenience survey was conducted on 199 respondents through multiple linear regression. It was found that socioeconomic, trip, and technology characteristics have a significant relationship with a willingness to park and ride. The result may assist future transport planners in improving the overall parking management strategies of the city centre.Keywords: Willingness, park and ride, Kuala Lumpur conurbation, regressioneISSN: 2398-4287 © 2019.

    Logistics and supply chain management: the importance of integration for business processes / Izwan Azmi … [et al.]

    Get PDF
    This conceptual paper outlines the importance of integration in supply chain management (SCM) by linking the functions of logistics as it applies in strategic business process. Often, business processes are developed at the strategic level but are never identified precisely in logistics or in SCM. Strategic business processes like Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Supplier Relationship Management (SRM), Customer Service Management (CSM) and Demand Management are not directly linked to logistics or SCM. This paper identifies the literature that expressed the importance of integration and how business processes can be relevant in the execution of key logistics activities in the supply chain context

    Impak Perbelanjaan Pelancong Antarabangsa Kepada Ekonomi Malaysia

    Get PDF
    Peningkatan perbelanjaan pelancong akan membawa kesan kepada meningkatnya permintaan akhir barangan dan perkhidmatan negara yang dilawati. Keadaan ini mempengaruhi atau memberi kesan kepada peningkatan tingkat keluaran dan pendapatan, serta kutipan cukai kerajaan daripada sektor tersebut. Sesetengah keperluan pelancong merupakan barang akhir atau barangan yang menggunakan asas input yang diimport. Ini bermakna perbelanjaan mereka juga merangsang peningkatan import. Kajian ini membincangkan secara konseptual dan disusuli secara praktikal bagi menganggarkan impak sebenar yang terhasil daripada perbelanjaan pelancong. Bagi tujuan tersebut kaedah Input-Output (I-O) akan digunakan. Untuk menggunakan kaedah ini, Jadual I-O yang dikeluarkan oleh Jabatan Perangkaan Malaysia yang merujuk kepada I-O 2000 telah diagregatkan mengikut kesesuaian kajian. Hasil kajian mendapati beberapa subsector pelancongan seperti hotel dan restoran, borong dan runcit, pengangkutan serta sektor pembuatan yang bukan merupakan subsektor pelancongan adalah antara sektor utama penjana ekonomi keseluruhan. Nilai pengganda bagi keluaran, pendapatan dan kutipan cukai kerajaan yang dicatatkan berada pada kadar yang memberangsangkan (10–50 peratus). Sungguhpun perbelanjaan pelancongan secara keseluruhan menyebabkan import barang dan perkhidmatan dari luar negara meningkat, namum peningkatan import adalah sekitar 20 peratus sahaja. Hasil kerja ini dapat dijadikan panduan dalam membina polisi pelancongan serta membantu pelajar lebih memahami keterkaitan yang wujud dalam sebuah sistem ekonomi.   Kata Kunci: Pelancongan Malaysia, impak ekonomi, pengganda, analisis Input-Output.

    Tertiary educated Muslim women’s work decision / Peck-Leong Tan, Muhammad Adidinizar Zia Ahmad Kusairee and Norlida Abdul Hamid

    Get PDF
    The participation of women in the labour force has been steadily rising over the years, especially with tremendous human capital investment in educating more women at tertiary levels. However, the tertiary educated women labour participation remains low, particularly among Muslim women. Therefore, this paper explores how tertiary educated Muslim women make their decision to work. This study surveyed 139 tertiary educated women and found their decisions to work are affected by their families’ needs and/or responsibilities, and may not be due to their lives’ goals and dreams. The majority of them work for the sake of money and hence will work if offered jobs meet their expectations in term of salary and position. Furthermore, they will leave the workforce if they need to fulfil their responsibilities at home. Therefore, to retain or to encourage more women especially those with high qualifications to be in the labour market, stakeholders must provide family-friendly jobs and suitable work environment such as flexible working arrangements. More importantly, stakeholders must be able to convince the family members of tertiary educated women to release them to the labour market

    Tourist satisfaction and loyalty: A structural equation model (SEM) analysis

    Get PDF
    This study attempts to analyze the relationship between tourist satisfaction and loyalty to the tourist destination of Taman Laut Pulau Kapas, a tourism destination.As to observe that relationship, 193 tourists have been interviewed. The interviews were carried out to get tourists’ responses relating to their satisfaction to the various aspects of tourism products, services, vacation trips, etc. A sum of 46 satisfaction detail is adduced to the tourists. The tourist’s demographic information, probability of revisiting and promoting the tourism destination upon returning from holiday are also attempted to be obtained. Here, the revisiting and promoting are indication to tourist loyalty on their holiday destination. Information from interviews will be analyzed using the Structural Equation Model (SEM) with computer package of Analysis Moment of Structural (AMOS 5.0). Survey result of all the 46 satisfaction details are grouped into four (4) groups/major variables, namely satisfaction on the whole trip, product diversification, support facilities and security. There is positive relationship between tourist satisfaction and the above mentioned variables. However, satisfaction and tourist loyalty for the Taman Laut Pulau Kapas case are found to be negatively related. Study also finds that the latent variables in this model have high Cronbach Alpha values which are at 0.88 and 0.81 respectively, and these prove that variables in the latent variables are suitable. Survey results also find that the correspondence decision value model, namely the chi square Goodness-of-Fit is not significant [χ2 (N=300, df=8) = 12.107 p>0.05], NFI correspondenceʹs index value, RFI, IFI, TLI and CFI exceed 0.90, and the RMSEA value is slightly smaller than 0.06 (RMSEA=0.051). Thus, the results confirm the measurement model reliability in structural equation model is as suggested by researchers

    No full text
    This paper reports on a study to analyze the daily workday utilization patterns and level of usage of two park and ride stations in the Kuala Lumpur metropolitan area. A parking utilization survey was undertaken that used a license plate survey methodology and continuous observation for an 18 hour period on a workday. The findings showed that the overall utilization pattern of the facilities was very high, with a utilization rate of between 80 and 95%. The stations, however, recorded a contrasting accumulation pattern. Most of the rail-based suburban park and ride users were long term parkers. The results of this study are comparable to results of similar studies in other cities throughout the world in terms of vehicle accumulation, parking duration and utilization pattern

    Intersectoral linkages in oil palm industry between Malaysia and Indonesia

    Get PDF
    Malaysia and Indonesia are both major producers of palm oil. The palm oil industry in both countries has contributed immensely to rural income and development. The purpose of this paper is to empirically contrast the similarities and differences in linkages between the Malaysian and Indonesian palm oil industry.The assessment is carried out using the hypothetical extraction method. Data used in this study were from Malaysian and Indonesian 2005 Input-Output Table. Empirical findings of this study revealed several similarities and differences of Malaysian and Indonesian palm oil industry. The linkage analyses in this paper indicated that for both Malaysia and Indonesia, the oil palm cultivation sector is economically more linked to the manufacturing sector than to the agriculture or service sectors. In other words, the cultivation sector not only has a strong economic pull on the manufacturing sector, but also strong economic push as well. The processing sector was found to be more backwardly linked to the agriculture sector and more forwardly linked to the manufacturing sector. Comparing the Malaysian palm oil industry to the Indonesian palm oil industry, the empirical findings indicated that the palm oil industry in Malaysia is more interconnected to the rest of the production sectors than it is in Indonesia. The overall implication of this is that the the Malaysian palm oil industry has greater influence on its economy than the industry does on the overall economy of Indonesia
