  • Ssegawa, Joseph (UTS ePRESS, http://epress.lib.uts.edu.au/, 2013)
    The paper documents the outcome of a study conducted to formulate the strategic perspective of the construction industry in Botswana. The study was sanctioned by the two influential entities namely the Ministry of ...
  • Mutingi, Michael (OmniaScience, http://www.omniascience.com, 2013)
    Purpose: The objective of this research is to explore the empirical green supply chain activities found in literature, and to develop a taxonomic framework that can be used for formulating appropriate strategies for green ...
  • Anderson, G.O. (IEEE http://www.saiee.org.za/publications/2008/sept/99-3-4.pdf, 2008)
    The paper gives detailed analyses to help determine the increase in production costs due to the transmission of reactive power. On the basis of that and with due consideration to the cost of VARS compensation equipment, ...
  • Mwewa, W.L. (University of Botswana, www.ub.bw, 1999)
    The demand for adequate training of artisans and apprentices in the construction industry cannot be over emphasized in view of the rapid changes the industry is undergoing. Many of of these changes are continously taking ...
