|Abstract||This paper presents a framework for integrated assessment of export indicators in chemical industries. The integrated approach discussed in this paper is based on principal component analysis (PCA). The validity of the model is verified and validated by numerical taxonomy approach. Furthermore, a non-parametric correlation method, namely, Spearman correlation experiment shows high level of correlation between the findings of PCA and NT. To achieve the objectives of this study, a comprehensive study was conducted to locate export indicators based on international standards. The integrated assessment is influenced by such shaping factors as export value, production value, export growth, R&D expenditure and value added. The chemical industries are selected according to the format of International Standard for Industrial Classification (ISIC). To have an accurate assessment of the chemical industries and to minimize the bias, data related to a five years period is collected. The results of PCA show the weak and strong points of each chemical industry concerning export activities. Furthermore, it identifies which export indicators have the major impacts on the performance of chemical industries. The modeling approach of this paper could be used for ranking and analysis of other sectors in particular or countries in general. In summery this paper presents a unique standard methodology for assessment and ranking of chemical industries based export activities. Furthermore, it is shown how total export efficiency is obtained through a multivariate approach. The results of such studies would help top managers to have better understanding and improve existing systems with respect to export activities.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
