Akinnuli Ridwan Emiola Asiru <p>One obvious problem in determining productivity especially for small and medium scale companies is the lack of appropriate software to help determine their productivity. This work developed a computer aided system for industrial productivity performance determination for small and medium-scale industries. The industrial productivity assessment application was developed using C# in the visual studio Integrated development environment. The application featured an easy to use and modern graphical interface and PDF report generation functionality.&nbsp; The usage procedure basically involved getting the productivity input data via an administered questionnaire, feeding the input into the Material, Capital, Labour, Energy, Expenses and Output sections respectively and generating the productivity report. In order to evaluate the performance of the developed application, a suitable company “Psaltry International Ltd” was selected as a case study and the data from 2013 to 2019 were used as the test inputs. The input data were also analysed manually and the result were compared with the generated results from the productivity assessment application which duly showed that the result from the productivity application was accurate. Based on this it was recommended that small and medium scale industries should embrace the use of computer aid systems in the management of their productivity.</p> 2021-09-22T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Assessment of Quality of Life in Adults with Hearing Impairment 2021-09-27T02:24:22+00:00 Lubna Noureen Muhammad Sikardar Ghayas Khan Atif Ikram Rashid Hussain Fazaila Ehsaan Fazeelat Akram <p><strong>Background:</strong> Hearing loss (HL) in adults is loss of ability to perceive surrounding environmental sounds. There may be environmental or genetic cause of this disability. Presently expectancy of old adult age is going to increase as in the same way hearing problems and its negative impact on health wellbeing standard of living also increased, the beneficial of current study is to be addressed, or give awareness about health consequences to adult population with hearing impairment.</p> <p><strong>Aim: </strong>To determine the quality of life in adults with hearing impairment.</p> <p><strong>Place and Duration of Study:</strong> Riphah international University, Lahore campus between December 2018 to May 2019.</p> <p><strong>Methodology:</strong> A cross sectional survey was conducted on 67 adults with hearing impairment (sample size was calculated on the base of prevalence of hearing loss in the Express Tribute, (March 4, 2014) which was a Pakistani&nbsp; study on hearing impaired&nbsp; population&nbsp; the president of famous organization the&nbsp; developmental diseases and community of auditory handicap&nbsp; MR Afzal&nbsp; estimated the&nbsp;&nbsp; occurrence of auditory deficits&nbsp; in Pakistan region was in between&nbsp; 7 to 8 percent on per 10,000 living birth ,this prevalence was used to calculate sample size by using online calculator).(1), their age range were 18 to 55 (elder adults) and 56 to 97(older adults). Data collection tool which was used in this research was 15D Quality of life questionnaire to find out the influence of hearing loss (HL) on daily living activities in adult’s life. Sampling technique used in this research was convenient sampling. For this purpose, descriptive analysis was done for demographics and chi square was used for inferential analysis by using SPSS20. Endnote was used for references.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> There are four domains of quality of life (speech, usual activities, mental functioning, and vitality status of participants) which have highly significant relationship value(&lt;0.001) with hearing impairment, in other domains of quality of life p value is less then (&lt;0.05) this means that other domains of quality of life have also significant relationship with hearing impairment except visual or sexual activity of the participants which have no significant association p- value(&gt;0.05)with hearing impairment.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong>&nbsp; Research concluded that domains of quality of life are significantly associated with hearing loss which have negative impact on the QOL(quality of life) except visual or sexual activity, but these two domains may also indirectly have associated or may affect the quality of life individually in adults with hearing impairment.</p> 2021-09-23T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
