The advanced design and manufacturing/assembly industry is increasingly operating on a globally integrated, Internet-based collaborative model of design, production and support in which OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) assemble products out of components and objects (both hardware and software) by a network of distributed suppliers. This distributed client-server digital enterprise collaboration and creation model is enabled by the Internet, company intranets and consortium-based extranets. This eTransition process leads towards waste reduction, innovation and prosperity at all levels, including not just machines and traditional engineering processes and resources, but also biomedical engineering, medical sciences and human resources, since the integrated, collaborative opportunities of product and process design, information technology and management, must be performed by a highly skilled, collaborating and continuously learning, dynamic workforce. This needs a sound methodology and a firm archite...

Abstract Servo pneumatics retains the advantages of standard pneumatics and adds the opportunity for closed-loop controlled, programmable positioning to within fractions of a millimeter in systems in which positions can be approached rapidly and without overshoot, stability under variable loads and conditions, and adaptive control for optimized positioning. Our challenge was to create an interactive multimedia program that could communicate exciting technical material to interested parties, incl...

Summarizes the most important principles of concurrent engineering [CE] and computer integrated manufacturing [CIM]. Discusses system data flow and IDEFo diagrams used as graphical descriptions of the engineering process. Introduces a software package called CIMpgr. Concludes that CIM addresses the total information requirements and management of a company from the development of a business plan through to the shipment of a product and the follow‐up support.

Throughout the world for the past two decades, all engineering companies have faced similar challenges. These are ever more demanding customers, rapid technological change, environmental issues, competitive pressures on quality and cost, and shorter time to market with additional new product features. This is all happening with the majority of the Western world’s common economic background of slow growth, excess capacity, increasing legislation compliance, demographic changes, market complexity ...

This alphabetic guide offers a critical analysis of the central and also of the more important controversial concepts in educational theory and practice. The authors address each idea or issue by means of an essay-length analysis. Examples of the types of questions considered are: "Can educational needs be assessed and, if so, in what way?"; "Is there any reason to take creativity tests seriously?"; "What is the status of a value judgement?"; "What distinct types of understanding, if any, are th...

This paper proposes a solution to establish a biomedical technology analysis platform to laying foundation for an expert knowledge-based biomedical system, which aims to give intelligent medical decision in the end. It curates 23.44 million biomedical articles since 1970 for serving as repository to supporting as knowledge base. Based on the platform, trend prediction in biomedical technology has been made by semantic analysis.
