Knowledge management awareness and maturity levels of small and medium enterprises (smes) in technoparks of Turkey
Wibowo, Muhamad Prabu; Çetin, Yasemin; Yıldırım, İbrahim Soner; Department of Information Systems (2014)
Knowledge is one of the most important capitals in this information era. Maximizing the use of knowledge for improving entrepreneurship, innovation and technological development while focusing on the long-term vision of the organization, will enhance the organization resilience to challenges and obstacles and improve its competitiveness. With that awareness and realizations of the importance of well-managed knowledge, more and more enterprises, including Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), are incorporatin...
Evaluation of products through the concept of national design : a case study on Art Decor magazine
Kaygan, Harun; Kurtgözü, Aren Emre; Department of Industrial Design (2006)
This study examines the ways in which the concept of 'national design' informs evaluation of products and their designers, through the example of the field of industrial design in Turkey and the recently influential design magazine Art+Decor. For this purpose, first of all, 'evaluation' is analyzed as a means in which meanings are imposed on products, and as a tool in struggles for positions and status within the field of industrial design. Then, the role of 'nationality' in such a function of evaluation is...
Nonlinear modeling of piezoelectric stack actuators with flexure based displacement amplifier mechanisms
Yurdakul, Ozan; Özer, Mehmet Bülent; Yıldız, Erdinç Nuri; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2022-8-26)
In this thesis, modeling methods for piezoelectric stack actuators (PSA) are studied. Both linear and nonlinear modeling methodologies are provided. FEM which is derived from constitutive piezoelectric equations is implemented to model linear behavior of piezoelectricity. Validation of the FEM model is performed through experiments. It is observed that modeling and test results are matched with high quality. Rhombus type amplifier mechanism (RTAM) is selected for this study after conducting a detailed liter...
An Ethnic group embedded in multiple identities: the case of Iraqi Turkmens in Turkey
Yıldız, Tunahan; Çıtak Aytürk, Zana Ayşe; Department of International Relations (2016)
The Iraqi Turkmens have remained on the agenda of Turkish foreign policy, media and society on different occasions for many years. They have been at the heart of many critical issues in Iraq due to their strategic location despite their relatively underestimated political position. In addition, the Iraqi Turkmen society offers an appropriate case to analyze different identities in the Middle East. With reference to these two interrelated facts, this thesis is an attempt to understand the identity of the Ira...
ICT adoption, software investment and firm efficiency in Turkey
Fındık, Derya; Tansel, Aysıt; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2013)
This thesis examines the impact of firm resources on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) adoption by the Turkish business enterprises and the impact of software investment on firm efficiency by using firm level data. ICT adoption is measured at three levels: The first level is technology ownership. The second level is the presence of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer resource management (CRM). The third level is the use of narrowband and broadband technologies. The impact of firm ...
