Abstract: It is critical that companies know how productive their knowledge workers are. They must identify when a person has already mentally quit and is just showing up to pick up a check? This research focused on what causes them to mentally depart from their jobs before they physically leave, termed Cognitive Turnover. The method for measuring CT is Statistical Evaluation of Cognitive Turnover Control System. SECtCS identifies disturbed workers that may sabotage both the company and themselves.

Abstract: Intermodal trains can leave a depot when all required cargo has arrived and the trains have been assembled. Reasonably accurate estimates for completion of assembly are not currently in use. Thus, locomotive engineers work under an on-call schedule. This results in engineers living under a very irregular work, rest, and social schedule. This presentation focuses on the need for methods to provide a more stable work environment for locomotive engineers.
