"]

Students: 864, Price: $94.99

Students: 864, Price:  Paid

The main goal of the course is to give you the most potent practical tool for Solving Complex Problems.

This Algorithm has 8 STEPS. In a logical chain from receiving not apparent Complex Problem, step-by-step, through the whole Algorithm, you will find from 10 to 100 new solutions and even more depending on your efforts.

STEP 1 will help you to frame the Problem into such a formulation that reveals the task of how to eliminate any Simple or Complex Problem.

STEP 2 aims to divide Simple and Complex Problems. You will be able to make self-elimination of a Simple Problem, even if it is not from your profile branch of industry. And if the Problem is Complex, then you go to the next STEP 3.

STEP 3 shows you how to find the root cause of the Complex Problem. At STEP 3, the ideas to solve your Complex Problem begin to appear.

STEP 4 gives you the way to find resources to solve your Complex Problem.

STEP 5 leads you to frame your desired result in the system without a Complex Problem. STEP 5 shows how to apply resources that you found in STEP 4 to eliminate a Complex Problem with low costs and even without them. As a result, of STEP 5, you will get several ideas to solve your Complex Problem. And with ideas to resolve an issue, you may get contradictory demands to the elements of the system in which there is a Problem. Then you go to the next STEP 6.

STEP 6 will help you formulate contradictory demands to the element of the system in which there is a Problem. As a result of STEP 6, you will choose the principle for resolving contradictions. In case of severe Problem, when an accepted principle did not lead you to a solution, you go to the next STEP 7.

STEP 7 will get you acquainted with special techniques out of 40 available in TRIZ to resolve physical contradictions and to find an inventive solution of your Complex Problem.

STEP 8 leads you to the most powerful solution from the list of already found while doing all seven STEPs of the Algorithm.

You may ask me: what kind of Problems can I resolve using this Algorithm?

If I answer: "ANY." You, probably, would not believe me.

But it's about 95% of all Problems around us.

And what kind of those 5% Problems you won't fix by this tool - the only those that need preliminary researches when the nature of an undesirable phenomenon is not known.

After finishing this course, it would be easy for you to find a lot of Solutions to ANY Complex Problems.

You'll see things around you in another way. What does it mean?

All things around you can help you to Solve a Problem with low costs and even without them. You need to know-how.

With this Engineering Problem-Solving Algorithm, you'll succeed in any severe case.

But it's not a magic wand - you will have to work a lot! And as a reward, there will be a lot of reliable decisions!

And last, but not least: only practicing the Engineering Problem-Solving Algorithm will increase your skills and as a result, increase your market price!

Dear Student,

In this tutorial we are going to continue to work on our automation project we created in the EPLAN Vol.1 Course. We are going to further expand our project by assigning parts to all the elements in the schematics and then we are going to create 2D mounting panel layouts for all of the cabinets.

Of course, as in the previous course, I am going to share with you a number of useful tips and tricks as you make your progress through the lectures.

If you feel that you are still somewhere on the beginner's level in EPLAN then I recommend that you check my first EPLAN course (Eplan Heavyweight Vol.1) where I show you how to start to work in EPLAN from scratch - i.e. from creating a project all the way up to creating circuit diagrams for PLC and some advanced topis like editing plotframe/form and EPLAN's "Check project" functionality.

I hope you will find this course valuable and I wish you a lot of fun and a lot of success in mastering Eplan Electric P8.

See you in the lectures!

Your Instructor for Electrical Design,

Ivan

Investigative Interviewing

An entry level course that equips delegates with the skill set necessary to carry out a basic investigation & interview.

Interviewing is carried out on a frequent basis across the globe. Investigative interviewing is the narrower band of criminal & disciplinary enquiry although it still connects with the fundamental process of speaking to people.

Often steeped in mystery and conjecture the thought of conducting such a process fills many with fear and trepidation.

This entry level course provides the practical tools to enable you to confidently conduct an investigatory interview with both witnesses and those individuals that may have contravened your organisations disciplinary code or are subject of a grievance and reach a decision that is both fair and lawful.

Used widely across the business community and the public sector the same elements have been adopted by the UK Police.

Ian Kirke is the Managing Director of leading UK Risk Consultants TFS (www.tfsuccess.com).

"TFS is providing Hertfordshire with a bespoke "out-of-custody" interview package to enable us to train all our uniformed response and neighbourhood officers. This training is providing officers with skills in recognising when out-of-custody interviews should be staged, how to stage such an interview, interviewing both cooperative and non-cooperative suspects, and dealing confidently with legal representatives; all in all professionalising and adding a consistency to out-of-custody interviewing in Herts.”

Shane O'Neill, Detective Chief Inspector, Hertfordshire Constabulary

What others have to say:

“As an experienced LP professional I believe that that the TFS approach to interviewing is like a breath of fresh air. The process driven methodology provides a practical framework that can be used to match all investigatory outcomes from low level disciplinary & grievance procedures to complex criminal investigations. An invaluable tool providing a significant ROI for investigators, especially those with limited experience, I highly recommend the programme.”

Gary Tattersall, Group Risk Manager, Jack Wills

“As an experienced investigator working within an ever changing company, time considered for investigations has always proven to be limited. The TFS investigation and interview techniques offer a structured process that is easy to follow, quick to prepare and gets the results required whilst demonstrating a clear understanding of investigations in business and knowledge of employment law. I also liked the approach to the training, particularly with the role-play exercises, it makes it go beyond just theory.”

Dear student,

Ever wondered how crude oil is transported from remote production wells like in Siberia or Arabian desert to refineries ? and then how commercial petroleum products like gasoline or diesel fuel are dispatched from refineries to your gas station so that you can fill up your car and go to work ?

If you're curious about that then you've come to the right place !

This course is designed to give you a comprehensive picture of the international oil logistics : from transport of crude oil to refineries, to dispatch of commercial petroleum products.

The course is organized into 2 parts :

  1. The first part is an analysis of transport problems, particularly the transport of crude oil. We discuss : sea transport first, different types of tankers, different types of charters, costs and prices for this type of transport, the regulatory framework and operational matters. Then we consider transport by pipeline.

  2. The second part deals with the different ways of delivering finished products from a refinery : by water, pipeline, rail or road, and the different restrictions that apply to them. Finally, we review the various controls that apply to dispatch.

This training course will highlight :

  • Up-to-date global statistics of oil & gas

  • Update you of the various methods and technologies used to transport oil, gas and their products

  • Essentials of international oil and gas supply, economics and transportation

  • Primary logistics – tanker freight costs and chartering

By the end of this training course, you will be able to :

  • Gain a broad perspective of the global oil and gas business : supply and transportation

  • Understand logistics and supply principles and practices

  • Use Worldscale reference to charter a ship and to calculate the profitability

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit :

  • Oil & gas field personnel

  • Operations, maintenance and engineering trainees

  • Other support staff who have an interest in increasing their understanding of the oil & gas logistics

  • Business Development Managers, Corporate Planning Professionals and Business Analysts switching disciplines who are required to have a better understanding of this stimulating field

  • Energy industry journalists and reporters

  • Professional personnel such as legal, banking, insurance, finance dealing with oil supply and transportation

What makes me qualified to teach you :

I hold 2 chemical engineering degrees from the "Ecole Nationale Supérieur de Chimie de Paris, Chimie ParisTech" and the "Institut Français du Pétrole, IFP School", 2 of the top tier chemical engineering schools in Europe with a major in refining and petrochemicals.

For the last 10 years I have been working as a chemical engineer for an international oil company where I have taken on different technical challenges in petrochemicals manufacturing, petroleum refining, logistics, planning and business analyses.

What's next ?

If you are interested in other topics related to chemical engineering or to the oil and gas industry, and would like a training course on them, built the way this current course is, then please let me know.
