Over time, standards have become an integral part of each system. At the same time, through the feedback, standards have been changing in order to improve management system and to fulfill of the common interests of the system and the user. One of the main improvements of management is the integration of the standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001. The aim of this paper is to present the benefits of implementing an integrated quality, environmental, occupational health and safety management system in order to improve the realization of scientific research projects and in processes of applied research in the Scientific Department of Institute of Nuclear Science ‘Vinca‘. Through integration of standards ISO 9001, ISO14001 and ISO 45001 the Scientific Department has established, documented, applied and maintained an integrated quality management system, which elements will be further discussed. In order to achieve a sustainable development of scientific, educational, technical and market-oriented business system, the Scientific Department continuously improves effectiveness of integrated quality management system.</p> Milica Ćurčić, Sanja Petronić, Đurica Katnić, Ratko Balić, Dubravka Milovanović ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/106 Tue, 10 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0100 UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE PLATFORM AND RELEVANT SENSORS FOR 3D STEEL ROOF STRUCTURE MODELLING http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/102 <p>Over time, the definition of geodesy has been changed, mainly as a consequence of technological development allowing geodesy to observe the Earth on global and local scales with the tendency of achieving a higher accuracy. Example of such technological achievement are autonomous intelligent platforms which gain more and more importance in geodesy, respectively in aerophotogrametry, since large number of structures is settled in a very specific terrain conditions, surrounded by high buildings and structures located in the each other’s vicinity. The main objective of this paper is production of the most accurate 3D model of steel components of the Macedonian Philharmonic hall roof structure by applying autonomous intelligent platform, whereby 3D model is to be used for collection of information for the purpose of designing aluminium plates and points where such plates are to be connected to the structure. This paper presents methodology through the following steps: introduction into a new approach of aerophotogrametry using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, preliminary field works, aerial recording and data processing for the purpose of obtaining 3D model of the Macedonian Philharmonic hall roof structure steel components.</p> Sanja TucikeÅ¡ić, Kornelija Ristić, Ankica Milinković ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/102 Mon, 10 Dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 PERFORMANCE INDICATORS AS GUIDELINES FOR RISK MANAGEMENT ACCORDING TO STANDARD ISO 9001:2015 http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/103 <p>The organization should assess its progress in achieving its planned results against its mission, vision, policies, strategy and objectives, at all levels and in all relevant processes and functions. The selection of appropriate performance indicators and monitoring methods is critical for effective measurement and analysis of an organization. This paper shows steps for using performance indicators and their targets as guidelines for risk management according to standard ISO 9001:2015. This standard requires from the organization to determine and apply the criteria and methods (including monitoring, measurements and related performance indicators) needed to ensure the effective operation and control of its processes, but doesn’t directly link them to the risk management process which is also one of standard requirements. This paper shows the holistic way for risk based thinking based on key performance indicators, ensuring the full integration of this quality management system requirement into the organization’s business processes.</p> Srdjan Vulanović, Bato Kamberović, Milan Delić, NebojÅ¡a Brkljač, Marina Žižakov ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/103 Mon, 10 Dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT AND AUTOMATION: KEY ISSUES http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/104 <p>Business processes are part of daily routine of every business; they are requested to perform at the best possible way, without any loses. Traditionally, over the time people are trying to automate processes using many techniques that may include machines or mechanical robots. A lot of processes preformed in the modern business or e-business are done using computers so there is a need to avoid losses caused by bad or slow process performances. The way of automation of processes using software that will perform like humans and carry out tasks on the computers is referred to as the robotic process automation. Usually, it is used to automate processes of relatively low to middle complexity and high repetitiveness. Business which automated its processes using the robotic process automation is supposed to gain multiple benefits in terms of reduced costs, improved process efficiency and significantly reduced number of rework tasks within the process.</p> Tatjana Å ibalija ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/104 Mon, 10 Dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION: OVERVIEW AND OPPORTUNITIES http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/105 <p>Business processes are part of daily routine of every business; they are requested to perform at the best possible way, without any loses.

Single atom manipulation and&nbsp; contact and non-contact manipulation of nanoparticles are described. Also, particular consideration is given to manipulation of nanotubes and some testing of their features by use of nanorobotic systems. The three methods are compared&nbsp; and their appropriateness for particular manipulation tasks is considered. The more degrees of freedom a method has and&nbsp; exerts greater manipulation force, the lower is the resolution of manipulation.</p> Svetomir Ilija Simonović ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/93 Mon, 10 Dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 IMPROVING THE EFFICIENCY OF THE WAREHOUSE STORAGE PROCESS WITH THE USE OF DRONES http://journal.jusk.rs/index.php/ijaq/article/view/107 <p>Companies strive to maximize optimization of their processes as much as possible in order to gain an advantage over competitors. Warehouse storage systems are the area that has not been sufficiently automated, which could significantly affect the total cost of the product. Monitoring and preventing inventory mismatches, on one side, and locating items individually, on the other side, are processes that have been manually performed by humans so far. By automating the storage system processes, employees can be more efficient and companies can be resilient and more reliable at meeting customers' requirements. As a possible solution, unmanned aerial vehicles, i.e. drones, are proposed as an instrument for taking further steps in the complete automation of these processes. The use of drones in warehouse storage systems leads to an improved efficiency of storage processes, and reduction of costs as well as the time needed for performing certain storage operations. Besides, the use of drones in storage operations make working in warehouses completely safe for humans.</p> Jelena S. Đurić, Stefan Z.
