Mahdi <p><strong>Researchers have increased interest in recent years in determining the optimum sample size to obtain sufficient accuracy and estimation and to obtain high-precision parameters in order to evaluate a large number of tests in the field of diagnosis at the same time. In this research, two methods are used to determine the optimum sample size to estimate the parameters of high-dimensional data. These methods are the Bennett inequality method and the regression method. The nonlinear logistic regression model is estimated by the size of each sampling method in high-dimensional data using artificial intelligence, which is the method of artificial neural network (ANN) as it gives a high-precision estimate commensurate with the data type and type of medical study. The probabilistic values obtained from the artificial neural network are used to calculate the net reclassification index (NRI). &nbsp;A program is written for this purpose using the statistical programming language (R), where the mean maximum absolute error criterion (MME) of the net reclassification network index (NRI) was used to compare the methods of specifying the sample size and the presence of the number of different default parameters in light of the value of a specific error margin (ε). To verify the performance of the methods using the comparison criteria above, the most important conclusions are that the Bennett inequality method is the best in determining the optimum sample size according to the number of default parameters and the error margin value</strong></p> 2021-09-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Solving Resource Allocation Model by Using Dynamic Optimization Technique for Al-Raji Group Companies for Soft Drinks and Juices 2021-10-23T17:38:01+00:00 Mohammed Hasan Al-Hakeem Mohammed Sadiq Al-Doori <p><strong>In this paper, the problem of resource allocation at Al-Raji Company for soft drinks and juices was studied. The company produces several types of tasks to produce juices and soft drinks, which need machines to accomplish these tasks, as it has 6 machines that want to allocate to 4 different tasks to accomplish these tasks. The machines assigned to each task are subject to failure, as these machines are repaired to participate again in the production process. From past records of the company, the probability of failure machines at each task was calculated depending on company data information. Also, the time required for each machine to complete each task was recorded. The aim of this paper is to determine the minimum expected time for the completion of all the machines assigned to perform their tasks in the company by using the dynamic optimization technique over finite and infinite horizons. By comparing the results, it was found that the first and second tasks were better than the third and the fourth tasks because the first task and the second one had completed their tasks in a shorter period than the others, they took 1379.2 hours and 1379.3 respectively during </strong> <strong>&nbsp;of horizons (stages), while the third task took 1379.4 hours and the fourth task 1379.5 hours. A careful analysis of the situation revealed that the time it takes for each machine to complete its tasks has been reduced, from appropriate planning and quick and effective maintenance can enhance the capacity of the machines and thus reduce time and effort, which contributes to reducing the company's costs and thus maximizing the production capability to increase the company's profits</strong></p> 2021-09-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Comparison of Some Methods for Estimating Mixture of Linear Regression Models with Application 2021-10-23T17:47:42+00:00 Urdak Ibrahim Kareem Fadhaa Mezher Hashim <p><strong>&nbsp;A mixture model is used to model data that come from more than one component.

Abdullah Al-Mashhdani <p><strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; IFRS 17 aims to provide a unified basis for accounting for all types of insurance contracts, including reinsurance contracts, in a manner that benefits both investors and insurance companies and enhances the ability of the financial statements of insurance companies for comparison between companies listed in financial markets around the world. According to this standard, insurance contracts are accounted for on the basis of the Asset-Liability Approach and the use of fair values that the standard requires updating regularly in order to provide more useful information to the users of financial statements, as a result of the failure of reporting requirements for insurance contracts in the Iraqi environment to provide adequate and honestly representative information about the result of the activity and the financial position as a result of the failure of the requirements of the unified accounting system for banks and insurance companies with regard to providing appropriate bases for recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of insurance contracts compared to IFRS 17. Consequently, the insurance contracts audit program prepared by the Federal Board of supreme audit is insufficient and lacks the necessary procedures, also, this program includes audit procedures for insurance companies only and does not include companies that deal in contracts of an insurance nature, as well as the absence of an integrated program or guide approved by private auditing companies and offices in the Iraqi environment for the purpose of auditing these contracts, which requires a statement of the importance of adopting the International Financial Reporting Standard IFRS 17 and its reflection on the audit procedures that auditors must adopt when auditing insurance contracts.

This study sheds the light on&nbsp; the ineffectiveness of Iraqi trade policies after 2003 in stimulating the productive economic sectors (agricultural and industrial) on economic growth, as most of the increase in Iraqi GDP growth throughout the study period was due to the increase in the oil sector’s contribution because of higher oil prices and increased production. Other sectors had no role in these increases, which made the Iraqi economy dependent on the outside world and importer of external economic crises. The recommendations included drawing up an economic plan under which productive sectors would be stimulated to grow and increase their contribution to the Iraqi GDP, reduce dependence on oil to finance public expenditures, reform the tax system, and call for partnership with the private sector and create appropriate conditions for it and attract foreign direct investment for the development of the Iraqi economy.&nbsp;&nbsp; The necessity for the government to adopt trade policies that are suitable to the reality of the Iraqi economy and the imbalances that exist in the economic sectors, and to exploit the trade deficit with some countries to develop an agreement to improve trade exchange with them leads&nbsp; to develop some national industries</strong></p> 2021-09-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The Importance of Liquidity and Profitability in Enhancing the Banking Value in Private Banks for the Period 2016 - 2019 2021-10-23T17:03:17+00:00 Mohamed Hassan Wadi Mohamed Samir Dhaireb <p><strong>The article aims to study the liquidity that is required to be provided optimally and the profitability that is required to be achieved by the bank, and the impact of both of them on the value of the bank,</strong> <strong>and their effect of both liquidity and profitability on the value of the bank. </strong><strong>Hence, the research problem emerged, which indicates the extent of the </strong><strong>effect</strong><strong> of liquidity and profitability on the value of the bank. The </strong><strong>i</strong><strong>mportance of the research stems from the main role that commercial banks play in the economy of a country. This requires the need to identify liquidity in a broad way and its most important components, and how to measure it. For the purpose of avoiding liquidity risks, liquidity should be managed by urging the bank to adopt good liquidity management and to achieve the profits that the bank wants to achieve by employing the liquidity available to it. It represents an important factor for increasing profits and increasing the confidence of shareholders and depositors; thus, maximizing the wealth of shareholders and the bank's wealth and, hence, raising the bank value. Consequently, this article is based on a main hypothesis that "there is no effect of profitable and liquidity on the bank value". This in turn is divided into two sub-hypotheses as follows:</strong></p> <p><strong>H1.&nbsp; There is no effect of quick liquidity on the bank value.</strong></p> <p><strong>H2. There is no effect of the return on deposits on the bank value</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong><strong>In order to achieve the objectives and hypotheses of the study,</strong><strong> the mathematical indicators were studied and analyzed to find the relationship between the variables and the effect according to statistical methods, where the research used the a simple regression statistical method, Is used by using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), and the quantitative measures, which included such indicators as the quick liquidity indicators to measure liquidity, the return on deposits to measure profitability, and Tobin's Q bank value measurement. The research sample consisted of four private banks (Middle East Bank, Gulf Bank, Al-Ahli Bank and Bank of Baghdad) for the period from 2016 to 2019. The most important conclusions reached by the research were the lack of effect of both the liquidity and profitability on the value of the bank. The research gave a number of recommendations, the most important of which is to urge banks to reduce the excess liquidity ratios and exploit them in different investment fields, as well as to go towards resources that achieve higher profitability rates than others that are characterized by their low cost. The research also recommended not to keep excess liquidity ratios at a high rate because of their effect on the profitability that the bank seeks to achieve</strong></p> 2021-09-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
