Alin Posteuca received the Romanian Academy Prize
Alin Posteucă (Dr. Eng., Dr. Ec, MBA) received the Traian Vuia Prize of the Romanian Academy, during the award ceremony of the General Assembly of the Romanian Academy on December 3, 2020, when the Romanian Academy prizes were awarded for the year 2018.
The Traian Vuia Prize, in the Technical Sciences category, was awarded to him for his book Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD) Transformation: Uncovering Hidden Reserves of Profitability. ”This book is the second in the Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD) trilogy and addresses the continued exploitation of hidden reserves of profitability based on consistent and continuous productivity growth, through a harmonious transformation of the entire production flow, a transformation coordinated by the continuing need to improve unit costs. The MCPD system was born over the years from careful observation of the challenges, principles and phenomena of production companies, from in-depth discussions with people from these companies at all levels and from a total scientific research on the literature on the topics covered in the book”, said Alin Posteucă.
The award-winning book was published by Routledge, New York, USA. Alin Posteucă is the author of two other books on Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD), his own system of consistent productivity growth for profitability, respectively Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD) and Methods Design Concept (MDC): The Path to Competitiveness (2017) and Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD) Profitability Scenarios: Systematic and Systemic Improvement of Manufacturing Costs (2019), books also published by Routledge, New York, USA. At the same time, he is the author of the new productivity paradigm presented in the book Speed-Based Target Profit: Planning and Developing Synchronous Profitable Operations (2020) also published by Routledge, New York, USA.
The awards of the Romanian Academy are given to scientists and culture professionals and to Romanian artists for their contribution to the development of culture and science. Proposals for this award are made annually by scientific research institutes, universities or members of the Academy until September 1 of the calendar year following the public presentation of the paper and are submitted to the scientific sections of the Romanian Academy, which appoints the members of the jury. The jury evaluates the works according to the originality, the contribution made and the impact on the respective field at national level. The assessment is debated in the scientific sections of the Academy, then analyzed by the Bureau of the Academy Presidium and subsequently approved or not by the Academy Presidium. The whole procedure of proposal, evaluation, debate and decision takes two years. Other persons who have previously been awarded the Romanian Academy Awards cannot receive other awards from the Romanian Academy.
The awards ceremony takes place in December of each year. In each category, prizes are awarded representing representative personalities for the respective field, such as the Ion Creangă, Mihai Eminescu or Titu Maiorescu prizes in philology and literature, Nicolae Iorga or A.D. Xenopol in historical sciences and archeology or Ștefan Procopiu in physical sciences, with a total of 14 categories and 81 awards.
