The production process is inseparable from a problem or reject product. PT. XYZ is a flexible packaging converter manufacturing company that has commitment in maintaining quality to reduce reject products. During the period January 2018 - December 2018 the reject value is still above the standard. This study aims to determine the factors causing the reject products of oil pack at PT. XYZ and proposed improvement to control of reject oil pack products. The results of pareto diagram show the reject that gave the biggest contribution is dirty in the printing process, thickness and wrinkle in the lamination process, and saggy in the slitting process. These four factors were analyzed using a fishbone diagram and then propose improvements for the causes of problems with the 5W and 1H methods. The analysis using cause and effect diagrams found that the main causes are the lack of supervision and inconsistency of the operator; poor maintenance of the engine unit; setting machine parameters and order schedules that not precise; the lack of supply and quality of raw materials. And then propose improvements with the 5W1H methods. The proposed improvements are briefing SOP and making engine alarm system; do maintenance, repair or replacement of damaged machine units; setting the machine parameters and order scheduling; monitoring the availability and quality of raw materials. The evaluation results of improvements can reduce the reject in the printing process 45%, the lamination 23% and the slitting 40%.

Certain acceleration in society can be clearly seen in the work as well as in the leisure sector. Among other things, working hours are becoming more flexible and the pressure and burden of work is increasing. Also, a growing desire for pleasure and quality of life, as well as well-being and relaxation are part of the change in values (Zarotis et al., 2007). The aim of this study is to examine the foundations and prerequisites for the development of modern leisure, sport and cultural tourism. The method used in this study was a review of the relevant literature. By analysing various research results we discovered that people in today's society with increasing pressure and stress levels must and should find a way to protect their bodies from these influences. Wellness and sports offers, especially on holiday, are a good and fast way to regeneration. Many people are aware of the need to take care of their health, especially on holiday. The search for deceleration in an increasingly fast-moving society will be a central pillar. Peace and balance will be major focal points of leisure time, which is why particularly quiet and endogenous sports will continue to gain in importance. It has been shown also that there are elements in sport that can turn a sporting attraction into a tourist attraction. From this it can be concluded that people are looking for experiences through sport with a high emotional but also cultural potential. In this study it was found that sports tourism and culture-sensitive travelling can go hand in hand. They offer the opportunity for intercultural encounters, international understanding and a sensitisation of one's own awareness of foreign value and norm systems. In order to remain competitive in the face of increasing competitive pressure in the tourism sector and the widespread distribution of tourist offers, it is necessary to further develop products innovatively. Tourist offers must be made more attractive, so that they can offer the customer additional benefits and thus stimulate demand. Special attention must be paid to customer needs and developing trends. A characteristic feature of modern society is the increasing focus on experience. As a result, experiences often become the core objective of product design. Emotional-psychological considerations show that although experiences cannot be produced by providers, providers can try to create favourable external conditions in a specific setting that make experiences possible. If it is possible to generate additional customer benefit through the targeted staging of experiences, this would be a decisive competitive advantage (Zarotis, 2019).

This study investigates the effect of the quality of doctor services on patient loyalty via the mediating influence of patient satisfaction. Variables like gender and proximity were also controlled for. Quantitative methods were used to analyze the data collected from a questionnaire that was randomly administered to out-patients (2500) in the five referral hospitals in Ghana. Results from the t-tests and ANOVA revealed that gender does not have an effect on patient satisfaction. Likewise, proximity did not have an effect on satisfaction and further loyalty. Correlation analysis results showed strong positive relationships between quality of doctor services and patient satisfaction, the quality of doctor services and patient loyalty and finally patient satisfaction and patient loyalty. This finding proves that the quality of services rendered by doctors influence the satisfaction of patients and further earns their loyalty.

Krokeme Okoyan, Peter Ayunku
Page no 164-170
This paper examined the relationship subsisting between banking sector reforms and money market. Annual data collected from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) statistical bulletin spanning the period 2004–2018 were analysed using the OLS model. The study adopted commercial paper as a proxy for money market performance, while banking reforms was proxied by credit to the private sector (CPS), broad money supply (M2) and total bank deposit (TD). Our findings revealed that an increase in the credit to the private sector (CPS) and total deposits (TD) will lead to a significant rise in the volume of commercial paper (CP) traded on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. While an increase in a rise in the total money supply in the economy will lead to a significant fall in the volume of commercial paper (CP) traded on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. To this tune, we recommend amongst others that the government continue to consolidate on existing reforms to improve deepening of the money market.
