How would you rate the activation of commercial banking loans, i.e. an attempt to stimulate economic activity and economic growth of the country through the policy of low central bank interest rates?
Under what economic conditions such a monetary policy may be conducted so as not to over-invest economic processes, i.e. not to overly high the level of investment processes and acceptance, most business entities have too high levels of investment risk and too high levels of credit risk by banks commercial?
How should the process of managing systemic risk in the central bank be improved and how should the process of credit risk management be improved in commercial banks so that no further financial crisis is generated?
I have answered these questions in my scientific publications whose links I have posted below.
In view of the above, inviting you to discuss the above issues, I am asking you the following question:

During the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic, interest rates were significantly lowered in 2020 as an instrument of interventionist, mild, anti-crisis monetary policy. However, now (October 2021) economic growth is so high and inflation is also increasing additionally that central banks have started to raise interest rates again.
What do you think about it?
Thank you very much,

The answer to the question of what is process management is very difficult to find in the literature. However, although the answer to the question is implicit, process management is widely used. And not only that, but papers are being written on that topic without a clear idea of ​​what is process management?Defining process management is hardened by the fact that there are two different opinions:process management for single process improvement and process management for system management.What is process management?
Relevant answer
Answer
As we have already said, a process may be defined as a set of interrelated or interacting activities which transforms inputs into outputs. Consequently, each activity, or a set of activities which receives inputs and transforms them into outputs may be considered a process. To function efficiently, organizations have to identify numerous interrelated and mutually interacting processes. Inputs into a process are usually outputs from other processes. Consistent and predictable results are recorded more effectively and efficiently when activities are explained and managed as an interrelated process functioning as a single coherent system. Understanding how results appeared using such a system, including all its processes, resources, management and interrelations, enables the organization to optimize its performance.

I need comments based on process management techniques...
Relevant answer
Firstly, you have to define the system under optimization. If this section you said is part of greater industrial facility, I would recommend to consider the total industrial facility for the optimization. The optimum condition for each element of a system, taken together will not represent the optimum of the system as whole.
After that, you should start modeling the components of the industrial flow-sheet. You can use phenomenological models or empirical ones. In this last case statistical procedures such as Evolutionary operations (EVOP) could be used at industrial scale
It is important to clearly define a proper objective function and good constrains to limit the solution to feasible conditions.
For me, optimization by computer simulations is the best when ever possible. I recommend MATLAB software to do this.

Question

Large companies, corporations and financial institutions, including banks, are technologically and financially prepared to develop applications for analyzing large data sets collected in Big Data database systems in the process of managing individual categories of banking, financial, including credit, operational, market and IT systems. The main research issue is the study of potential clients, eg potential borrowers in the field of creditworthiness analysis by analyzing data collected in the Big Data database.
In the Big Data database system, data on potential clients collected from the Internet from entries, comments, posts contained on social media portals can be collected. If the banks analyze the client's creditworthiness based on sensitive, personal and classified data downloaded from social media portals, then the ethics of this type of analytical process should be considered.
This issue of ethics and personal data protection also arises when the insurance company verifies the health of a potential client who submitted an application for life insurance - based on what he writes about himself, he will report his status on social media portals. If the potential client was aware of the fact that he shares personal information with his friends on social media portals only with his friends and the bank, insurance company or other institution uses this secret without using the client's knowledge, then the problem of breaking the basic ethical principles in business arises.
In view of the above, I am asking you the following question: Are you already familiar with the use of Big Data data analysis in the risk management process in corporations and financial institutions?
Please, answer, comments.
I invite you to the discussion.

Best regards, Leila
Relevant answer
Answer
@ Leila Bashir - The primary difference between procedural Vs process based companies would be around performance, repeatability (quality) and so customer satisfaction. Processes are designed and fit for purpose (ie. have control plans) with defined performance measures to ensure customer needs are met. Procedures are written by an SME (usually separated from the work being done, and usually written to satisfy a third party or regulatory requirement rather than a customer requirement). Procedures rarely have measures defined within them and can lack stability and quality if their content is open to interpretation.

Answer
Dear Mohammad Mahafdhah,
the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially the AI part Machine Learning (ML), in the IoT is an enormously broad, important and future-oriented area of research. The use of AI in the IoT allows the design of AI-Powered IoT devices and services. These form the basis for Cognitive IoT. By using AI in IoT several important benefits can be achieved - especially through research in the following Reaearch Areas (RA):
RA1: Visual recognition ability of IoT devices: Pattern / Image / Object recognition, Situation recognition
RA2: Audio pattern recognition using the IoT devices: Speech / Voice / Melody / Noise recognition,
RA3: Ability of IoT devices: Real time objects detection, classification and recognition
RA4: Self Adaptive IoT applications as AI-based applications
RA5: Detecting anomalies in the IoT – Self Adaptive IDS (Intrusion Detection System)
RA6: Machine learning for IoT Security & Privaty support
RA7: Adaptive Trust Systems in the IoT; Adaptive trust estimation
RA8: Adaptive Sensing in IoT; Environment parameter estimation
The use of AI in IoT - particularly in the areas of RA5, RA6 and RA7 - will play an important role in improving cybersecurity in the future.
If you consider functional parts of the IoT (see my illustration "IoT - his family") for the RAs mentioned here, you will find some interesting topics for the dissertation. My list of literary sources should help.
Good luck and best regards

Question

I had discovered in 2005 that most used process management model was actually developed in 1920's as a product control model, as the concept of process was not present then. It was more like having trade-smiths, who would build things. To my knowledge, this product control model is called PDCA, which led to creation of cost of poor quality. While using the PDCA model, experts like Juran, Taguchi, Ishikawa and Deming tried to fix its weaknesses, which were not adopted for convenience. This whole concept of PDCA eventually resulted in a field of quality. It is due to poor design. With this mindset, I am interested in knowing if anyone is aware of  the process models  used currently.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Praveen,
you make an interesting question. One has to decide where the boundaries of the process lie. In my case I come from a design background. It is well documented that 90% of product cost is committed at the design stage and many quality issues can be "designed out".
The methods that I have found most useful are:
and Prince 2 for management control https://www.prince2.com/uk/what-is-prince2
However, these are heavyweight methods and I use them as guides to good practice rather than adhering to their every detail; more like a tool box where the craftsman decides which tool to use.
Hope this helps

Question
14 answers
We appreciate software engineering process models provide the scope for managing processes in managing projects. But there are concerns on whether the model is really the one to provide the best alignment over time! It is argued that model should pursue right project management metrics based performance measurements and guide the project managers with clarity. But dynamic conditions imposed by the reallife projects look for mid course corrections. Thus, there is need for stability and steady state in the model. Are there formal methods to predict this decay?
Relevant answer
Answer
Yes, there are some work in the area of "software evolution" in which they predict that a software is undergoing decay or it is already dead.
The approach is metric-based. They collect some metrics, and use those metrics to predict that the maintenance cost has already become too much and that it would continue to grow.
 I know Nazim madhavji (Univ of Western Ontario) doing some work in this regard.
Some people in SEI (Software Engineering Institute) have also donen some work in this regard.
Your question may encourages one to come up with a CDM (software Decay Model) using which one can periodically rate a software in the range [1..5].

Context Switch happens when processes CPU time slice finishes or interruption happens.
Relevant answer
Answer
I think when the time slice ends, and when there is an interruption (different from the time slice) are two different cases. The context switch which occurs in both cases hardly depends on the underlying hardware (CPU). The context switch depends on the number of registers, etc... In the case of the end of the time slice, the cost of executing the next task (for a time quantum) really depends on the cost of the scheduling algorithm and not only the cost of the context switch. Most of modern CPU can effectively read/write all the registers in a single instruction. This makes difficult to be able to optimize this part at the OS level.
