The main components of communication process are as follows:

Context - Communication is affected by the context in which it takes place. This context may be physical, social, chronological or cultural. Every communication proceeds with context. The sender chooses the message to communicate within a context.

Sender / Encoder - Sender / Encoder is a person who sends the message. A sender makes use of symbols (words or graphic or visual aids) to convey the message and produce the required response. For instance - a training manager conducting training for new batch of employees. Sender may be an individual or a group or an organization. The views, background, approach, skills, competencies, and knowledge of the sender have a great impact on the message. The verbal and non verbal symbols chosen are essential in ascertaining interpretation of the message by the recipient in the same terms as intended by the sender.

Message - Message is a key idea that the sender wants to communicate. It is a sign that elicits the response of recipient. Communication process begins with deciding about the message to be conveyed. It must be ensured that the main objective of the message is clear.

Medium - Medium is a means used to exchange / transmit the message. The sender must choose an appropriate medium for transmitting the message else the message might not be conveyed to the desired recipients. The choice of appropriate medium of communication is essential for making the message effective and correctly interpreted by the recipient. This choice of communication medium varies depending upon the features of communication. For instance - Written medium is chosen when a message has to be conveyed to a small group of people, while an oral medium is chosen when spontaneous feedback is required from the recipient as misunderstandings are cleared then and there.…...

Computer Processes

...1. Computer Processes * Processes can be defined as programs that are being executed within a computer system. The computer program refers to a number of instructions that are issued by the users of the computers, while the processes are the execution of the instructions. One program can have several processes related to it. * Computer processes are named after the operating system that is running them. In this case therefore the names of the processes will differ depending on the operating system that is running them.  * Multi-Processing * Foreground Processes - Background Processes * Processes versus Threads 2. Memory Management * Is the act of managing computer memory. The essential requirement of memory management is to provide ways to dynamically allocate portions of memory to programs at their request, and freeing it for reuse when no longer needed. This is critical to the computer system. * The memory manager implements virtual memory provides a core set of services such as memory mapped files, copy-on-write memory, large memory support, and underlying support for the cache manager. 3. File Systems * Is a means to organize data expected to be retained after a program terminates by providing procedures to store, retrieve and update data, as well as manage the available space on the device(s) which contain it. A file system organizes data in an efficient manner and is tuned to the specific characteristics of the device. A......

An organism is defined as an individual animal, plant or single-celled life form. Therefore the cell is considered the smallest unit of life competent of a self-sufficient existence. There are seven things that all living organisms from bacteria to plants to animals all have in common and whether something is living or not is usually compared to the seven life processes. These processes are movement, reproduction, sensitivity, growth, respiration, excretion and nutrition. The acronym ‘MRS GREN’ will be used when discussing the processes of life movement All living things move to some kind of degree and this is the most apparent within the animal kingdom. Animals are able to physically move themselves from one place to another; humans will usually use their muscles in order to be able to move where as other animals may have to hop, crawl, swim or fly. Movement is very important for gathering sustenance...

Welding Processes

...Publishing Ltd WELDING PROCESSES HANDBOOK Later, in the 1930s, new methods were developed. Up until then, all metal-arc welding had been carried out manually. Attempts were made to automate the process using a continuous wire. The most successful process was submerged arc welding (SAW) where the arc is "submerged" in a blanket of granular fusible flux. During the Second World War the aircraft industry required a new method for the welding of magnesium and aluminium. In 1940 experiments began in the USA with the shielding of the arc by inert gases. By using an electrode of tungsten, the arc could be struck without melting the electrode, which made it possible to weld with or without filler material. The method is called TIG welding (Tungsten Inert Gas). Filler material (if necessary) electrode I Figure 1.3 The TIG welding method. Some years later the MIG welding process (Metal Inert Gas) was also developed using a continuously fed metal wire as the electrode. Initially, the shielding gases were inert such as helium or argon. Zaruba and Potapevski tried to use C02 as this was much easier to obtain and by using the "dip transfer" method they did manage to reduce some of the problems caused by the intense generation of spatter; however when using a relatively reactive gas such as C02 or mixed gases such as argon/C02, the process is generally called MAG welding (Metal Active Gas).

Cognitive Processes

...September 30th, 2014 PS200: Introduction to Cognitive Psychology Cognitive Processes Cognitive psychology has evolved over the years. Researchers are constantly trying to find new ways to understand and define the human brain. Our memory is quite important in how we function on a day-to-day basis. Our memories help us to remember important functions such as combing our hair, brushing our teeth or getting dressed in the morning. Memories also help us to learn more information. Cognitive psychology refers to the study of human mental processes and their role of thinking, feeling, and behaving. Cognitive psychology studies how people perceive, learn, remember, and think. Cognition is the area within psychology that examines how we acquire, store, transform, and use knowledge to help further our knowledge (Matlin, 2013). If cognition functions every time a person gains, stores, transforms, and uses information then, cognition requires mental processes. Cognitive processes are vital to human behavior. There are three cognitive processes, perception, attention, and memory. The first cognitive process is perception. Perception uses previous knowledge to gather and interpret stimuli registered by the senses (Matlin, 2013). Perception is our experience of the world and the environment around us. It’s the set of front-end processing that allows an individual to organize and interpret incoming information. We gain information about properties of our environment and use it in our......

Business Processes

...Business Processes Every organization—be it a governmental body, a non-profit organization, or an enterprise—has to manage a number of processes. Typical examples of processes that can be found in most organizations include: Order-to-cash: This is a type of process performed by a vendor, which starts when a customer submits an order to purchase a product or a service and ends when the product or service in question has been delivered to the customer and the customer has made the corresponding payment. An order-to-cash process encompasses activities related to purchase order verification, shipment (in the case of physical products), delivery, invoicing, payment receipt and acknowledgment. Quote-to-order: This type of process typically precedes an order-to-cash process. It starts from the point when a supplier receives a "Request for Quote" (RFQ) from a customer and ends when the customer in question places a purchase order based on the received quote. The order-to-cash process takes the relay from that point on. The combination of a quote-to-order and the corresponding order-to-cash process is called a quote-to-cash process. Procure-to-pay: This type of process starts when someone in an organization determines that a given product or service needs to be purchased. It ends when the product or service has been delivered and paid for. A procure-to-pay process includes activities such as obtaining quotes, approving the purchase, selecting a supplier, issuing a purchase order...

Communication Processes Annd Obstacles

...Business Disconnect: Communication Processes and the Obstacles the Affect them Abstract The ability for any company to communicate effectively with another depends on its ability to use the communication process to its advantage. Sending, encoding, decoding and receiving are the steps necessary to achieve effective business-to-business messages. Along the way noise and other obstacles affect the reliability of the message sent and the understanding of the message received. Business Disconnect: Communication Processes and the Obstacles the Affect them Often time’s in business-to-business messages communication breakdowns cause incorrect information to be transmitted. Deals that may have otherwise been successful are destined to fail on the bass that what one company requires may not be understood by the company in a position to supply. Message in a Bottle The initial phase of communication is the message itself. Without a message to be sent communication is non-exsistent. The message sent must be carefully put togeather to insure that the meaning is understood in the context in which it was meant to be received. A message between two companies must have a level of understanding that allows tge receiver to understand exactly what the sender needs , wants or has to offer. The message can be in many forms but the message itself remains constant. It is the intent that is the important aspect. Return to Sender In the communication process the......

...Processes for Students with Learning Disabilities Many college students have different processes for many different things. We are going to focus on the processes that students with learning disabilities deal with. Just a few of these processes have to do with oral language, study skills, and social skills that they may have to cope with. One process that these students have to go through is the process of oral language. Students with learning disabilities might have trouble with spoken languages. In order to get through this difficulty, they would need a process to follow. For example, one student might overcome this diversity by taking on the challenge of speaking with someone for help. This can also be very difficult for this particular person. Another thing that might need assisting by a process would be expressing their individual ideas. They could do this very thing by first thinking of their idea, they then might take their surroundings into consideration. By this I mean that they will feel more comfortable to express their ideas if their surroundings are gentle and calm. One more thing that may require a process involving oral language would be grammar. Grammar is probably one of the most difficult things to focus on if a learning disability is present. They can go about this problem by first talking it over with someone. After that, they can get a little practice and review over their work with a teacher or another experienced person. ...

This paper will explain the purpose of each cognitive processes. This paper will also summarize and evaluate the studies of these cognitive processes and also the research methodology that they focus on. Cognitive processes are very important for human behavior. It is about the knowledge and the way people use his or her knowledge. Cognitive processes affect individuals in everyday life, often occurring within fractions of a second. EXPLAIN THE PURPOSE OF EACH COGNITIVE PROCESS Language is used to communicate feelings, thoughts, and ideas effectively. The use of language begins at a very young age, some would agree before birth. Language is spoken in a mixture of techniques from oral, to sign language to body language. In language there is a collection of terms, which is related to a particular topic, and the collection of terms is identified as a lexicon. Language and lexicon mutually combined because of the recollection of vocabulary or verbal communication, which transmits to cognitive psychology because the occurrence of lexical judgments in processing vocabulary in the cognitive mind. The main aspects of verbal communication are communicative, uninformed, controlled, generative, and self-motivated. The communicative part of language is the speech between two individuals. The uniformed part is......

Cognitive Processes

...Cognitive Processes According to Robinson-Riegler and Robinson-Riegler (2008), learning is a natural task carried out by humans to facilitate better and more fulfilling life development. In general, human beings learn through, observation or even through other classical methods. Humans learn how to adapt to specific disciplines as well as how to ignore some unnecessary responsive stimulus though classical methods. However, in applying the available learning methods, human beings must pass through a comprehensive cognitive process. There are several types of stimulus or cognitive processes common in human growth and development. Different people employ the available cognitive processes at different times in their life time. The identification of the common cognitive processes as well as their purpose in human development is exceptionally decisive in facilitating the understanding of human cognitive development. Common Cognitive Processes By referring to Robinson-Riegler and Robinson-Riegler (2008), the first main cognitive process is perception. Perception entails the front-end process which helps in the organization and interpretation of the received information. Perception is usually based on auditory information as well as visual information. Perception is acquired through observation and listening to the emerging information, as well as organization of the received information in human mind. The second main cognitive stage is identification process. Although this......
