2 46.Cnf-1086 SUCCESSION PLANNING PRACTICES AND ITS EFFECT ON EMPLOYEES RETENTION A COMPARATIVE STUDY (The Case of Almeda Textile Factory and MAA Garment and Textiles Factory) ABSTRACT The objective of the study was to assess succession planning practices and its effect on employee’s retention intention the case of Almeda Textile Factory and MAA Garment and Textiles Factory. The study adopted both descriptive and explanatory design. Primary data was obtained using five-point Llikert scale questionnaire and semi structured interview. From the two purposely selected factories, 377 sample employees were determined and these were selected based on stratified sampling technique. Data was then analyzed using descriptive statistics (frequency, percentage table and chart) and inferential statistics (ordinal logistic regressions model) to identify the effect of succession planning practices on employee’s retention intention. The study found that both factories employees have no good understanding or perception regarding succession planning practice and its value. This study confirmed that in both factories there is no clear and well known linkage between succession planning and factories strategy. In addition, the marginal effect revealed that variables like human resource planning, talent management, career development; performance management, training and development, management involvement, reward management, and experience were positively associated with the intention of employee’s retention. Moreover, MAA Garment and Textiles Factory have higher probability of retention intention than Almeda Textile Factory employees’ by 10.77 %. Besides, MAA Garment and Textiles Factory employees’ have lower probability of turnover than those of Almeda Textile Factory by 12.49 %. Based on the findings, the factories have moderate succession planning practices which is not appreciable, extensive and also management involvement (dy/dx=52.67%, P<0.05), talent management (dy/dx=39.25%, P<0.05), performance management (dy/dx=26.99%, P<0.05), and human resource planning (dy/dx=24.78, P<0.05), have strong effect on employee’s retention intention. Therefore, awa GMC-EcoMan 2020 Claim
3 47.Cnf-1034 Improved design of nano composites through parameter leveraging Composites have been used for many applications seeing use in the Construction, Automotive and Aerospace Industries. The emergence of nano-materials has permitted design of new materials like nano composites. These have interfaces at molecular length scales and large interaction areas. In particular, the area to volume ratio is high which permits the tuning of volume fraction of secondary components without loss of desired properties. New areas of design can use chemical and phase chemistry along with electrical electronic and mechanical properties. The effect of secondary contributions on the design of fracture resistant nano composites is outlined. EngiTek 2020 Claim

7 58.Cnf-1127 ROOFTOP GARDEN IN AMMAN RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS- SUSTAINABILITY AND UTILIZATION Adopting green roof systems in residential building sectors all over the world and in particular in Arab region becoming a necessity because of the current environmental, social, and economical challenges. Some of these countries have already developed green building rating systems and recognized the importance of green roofs, however, they still do not fully benefit from it. Although green top roof gardens are a longstanding practice in developed countries, in Amman are still individual trials that are not govern by policies and common design practices and receive poor recognition from policymakers, researchers, and even practitioners. The purpose of the research is to contribute to a better understanding of the potential role of green roof systems in effective sustainable planning, and to recommend indicators for the utilization of roof top gardens in Amman, the capital city of Jordan. These indicators derived from the principles of sustainability: social, environmental, and economic, taking into account the local climate, site and building characteristics. The indicators are assumed to help designers to adopt green roofs in their environmental policies. Descriptive analytical methodology, qualitative survey, data collecting and analysis approaches are used to achieve the goals of the study. In order to identify the indicators, the researchers carried out a holistic literature review of relevant studies and practices in many countries, and then conducted a systematic analysis for the collected data and methodologies. After then, proposed indicators related to economic, social and environmental benefits of roof top garden systems in Amman. The research outcome demonstrates the possible applications of the driven indicators as a guideline for the utilization of sustainable roof gardens in Amman City of Jordan, taking into account the national and local context, for the benefits of individuals and community.

9 47.Cnf-1115 Accounting for parameters non-identities of structural elements of PAA of Ka-band The technique is proposed for creating a matrix of control signals with elements of phased antenna array of Ka-band with discrete semiconductor and analog ferrite phase shifters. During its creation, parameters of phase shifters are not identical and are taken into account in the process of their manufacture, as well as under external conditions, including temperature. Dielectric properties of used materials are also taken into account when using radio transp arent shelters or fairings. The results of experimental studies using proposed technique are given by the example of 9-element linear phased antenna array. It is shown that proposed technique of creating a matrix of control signals allows one to exclude the effect of lack of identicalness of phase characteristics of all its elements in the channels on the parameters of ra diation pattern. In addition, scanning process eliminates the need to use computing devices. All necessary information is stored in the memory of the control unit. EngiTek 2020 Claim
10 39.Cnf-1106 Triple Feed Triangular Microstrip Antenna for Polarization Diversity A triangular microstrip patch antenna fed with three microstrip feeds is designed on an equilateral substrate to produce different polarization states. Quarter wavelength transformers are utilized for better impedance matching. The proposed antenna can provide a linear polarization state with wide bandwidth and right and left-hand circular polarization with acceptable axial ratio bandwidth through activating one feed at a time. Other states can be obtained with different phase shifts by involving two or more active feeds. No diodes and hence no DC or AC biasing circuits are used in this design.

The cell has very small write current of about (45 pA) which shows a great promise for using as extremely low power. GMC-ElecEng 2020 Claim
14 52.Cnf-1117 Streamline development of propellent-free topical pharmaceutical foam: Efficient quality by design strategy of a potential sunscreen foam Catching up with a recent interest in developing green pharmaceutical products, a key challenge is encountering formulation scientists to find proper ingredients, approach or dispensing tools in a reasonable time due to manufacturing variability. Therefore, this work is established to produce green propellent-free topical pharmaceutical preparation and thus environmentally friendly, through utilization of the concept of quality by design (QbD) to eliminate or reduce the source of variability. A foam dosage form with ingredients suitable for potential sunscreen application was developed. Formulation ingredients were based on local Jordanian virgin olive oil. Twenty formulae were screened under the theme of QbD. One formulation successfully combined in relatively stable water in oil emulsion, whereby foam generation was achieved through specialized dispensing tool. Textural characteristics were evaluated by human panel (30) and found favourably acceptable for this formulation. Physicochemical characteristics of the investigated and optimized formulae were confirmed through light microscopy, viscosity and spectrophotochemical measurements. Sun protection factor (SPF) was determined as 12.1±0.6 (n=3); indicating potential sunscreen applications for almost two hours in the daytime. Critical quality attributes were determined throughout the development process and risk assessment measurements were estimated thereof. Such an outcome that will help to create preliminary predictive model for scalable industrial screening production of this green pharmaceutical topical preparation with local sourcing of generally regarded safe materials (GRAS).

15 47.Cnf-1122 A Miniaturized Ultra-Wideband Wilkinson Power Divider Using Non-Uniform Coplanar Waveguide In this paper, the design of an ultra-wideband Wilkinson power divider (WPD) using non-uniform coplanar waveguide (CPW) is introduced. The main idea is to replace the conventional CPW by non-uniform one that achieves the ultra-wideband operation. To generate the non-uniform design, the even and the odd mode circuits are analyzed and the Fourier series expansion is embedded in an optimization process. Then, three resistors are incorporated to improve the output ports isolation over the entire band. A Full-wave simulation is performed using HFSS. The new divider has a compact size, enhanced bandwidth (0.2 GHz-14 GHz), and isolation better than –10 dB. EngiTek 2020 Claim
16 51.Cnf-1123 Circular Supply Chains: A Comparative Analysis of Structure and Practices This paper presents a comparative analysis of the structure and practices of Circular Supply Chains (CSC) across multiple industries. This concept has recently evolved from basic reverse logistics practices to become a comprehensive approach for reserving resources and attaining sustainability across the supply chain. It emphasizes the value of backward flow of material and information within the different elements of the supply chain. Common practices include recycling, returning, reusing, and recovery. Such practices are increasingly used in different industries to reduce waste, conserve scarce resources, and improve the overall supply chain efficiency. The paper explores and compares the CSC practices in the supply chains of three industries: furniture, aluminum, and farming. It presents the SIPOC structure of the targeted supply chains, identifies the CSC practices within the entities of each supply chain, and links these practices to specific performance measures (financial, operational, and environmental). Finally, the paper presents a comparative analysis of CSC practices across the supply chains of the targeted industries. This contributes to existing CSC literature and establishes a framework to integrate CSC practices within supply chains. EngiTek 2020 Claim
