Hotter temperatures, less arctic ice, loss of habitat-every other day, it seems, global warming and environmental issues make headlines. Consumer-driven environmental awareness combined with stricter recycling regulations have put the pressure on companies to produce and dispose of products in an environmentally responsible manner. Redefining industrial ecology, while reconsidering the original definition, Environment-Conscious Manufacturing explores topics such as industrial metabolism, product design for the environment, design of reverse and closed-loop supply chains, and disassembly modeling, using case studies to support the discussion. After introducing basic concepts and the historical roots of environment conscious manufacturing (ECM), the text covers algorithms and heuristics; design for disassembly; the environment, recycling, and remanufacturing; disassembly process planning and scheduling; environmental impact assessment models; lifecycle assessment; logistic aspects; product reuse and recovery; and sustainable products. The chapter contributors discuss the selection of economical products, collection centers, recovery facilities, production facilities, second-hand markets and new products, the optimal transportation of goods, and the evaluation of a marketing strategy and futurity of used products. The book ends with an overview of the barriers to ECM and explores how to use integrative structural modeling to investigate, analyze, and overcome them. Environmentally friendly has evolved from reluctant compliance with required regulations to a mechanism for gaining the competitive advantage and an important part of strategic management. Expected benefits of this paradigm shift include safer and cleaner facilities, lower future costs for disposal and worker protection, reduced environmental and health risks, and improved product quality at lower cost and higher productivity. Describing the basic elements of ECM, this book gives you the tool
This book provides the methods of solving the problems connected with cams-their design, application, and manufacture. It introduces the improvement of numerically controlled machine tools and the availability of computers in general. The book is useful for practicing and design engineers.
Supply chains are significant in improving business efficiency. Sustainable supply chains help industries enhance their ecological, monetary, and social performance. Innovative research frameworks as well as the modelling of sustainability issues are significant to different stakeholder's perspectives. This book guides researchers and practitioners through developing effective sustainable supply chains to meet UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Imagine if your process manufacturing plants were running so well that your production, safety, environmental, and profitability targets were being met and your subject matter experts could focus on data-driven business improvements. Through proper use and analysis of your existing operations data, your company can become an industry leader and also reward your stakeholders. Written in an engaging and easily understandable manner, this book demonstrates a step-by-step process of how an organization can effectively utilize technology and make the necessary culture changes to achieve operational excellence. You will see how several industry-leading companies have used an effective real-time data infrastructure for mission-critical business use cases. The book also addresses the challenges involved, such as effectively integrating operational (OT) data with business (IT) systems to enable a more proactive, predictive management model for a fleet of process plants. Learn how a real-time data infrastructure enables transformation of raw sensor data into contextualized information for operational insights and business process improvement. Understand how reusing the same operational data for multiple-use cases significantly impacts fleet management, profitability, and asset stewardship. See how a simple digital unit template representing production flows can be used repeatedly to identify critical inefficiencies in plant operations. Discover the best practices of deploying real-time situational awareness alerts and predictive analytics. Realize how to transform your organization into a data-driven culture for continuous sustainable improvement. Find out how leading companies integrate operations data with business intelligence and predictive analytics tools in a corporate on-premises or cloud-enabled environment. Learn how industry-leading companies have imaginatively used a real-time data infrastructure to improve yields, reduce cycle times, and slash operating costs. Aimed at engineers, IT professionals, and business management in the process industries, this book guides readers to use the best, results-proven approaches to ensure operational excellence.

For over 40 years, students, designers, and manufacturing practitioners have used the Fundamentals of Tool Design to gain an in-depth understanding of all the factors that impact tool success. Fully illustrated, readers will find practical design examples, cost analysis calculations, process data, operating parameters, and tips and techniques - all the concrete knowledge needed to spark innovation and resolve complex tooling challenges. Among the updates to the sixth edition, you'll find updated and expanded tool designer objectives and responsibilities, a designer's guide to machine tools, revised tool material, mechanical definitions and reference tables, expanded broaching examples and concepts, new sections on part location and support, expanded bushing applications, and revised GD&T information to include ASME Y14.5-2009. New appendices provide sources for tool design components, related web sites and search engines, and handy GD&T reference charts. Expanded learning resources include how to use the nine DVDs of the Fundamentals of Tool Design Video series to complement your study. Additional review questions at the end of chapters, along with an expanded, standalone Instructor's Guide enhance training and classroom instruction.
Hundreds of examples and guidelines detail how to improve your current die designs, or utilize new progressive designs that maximize efficiency while minimizing cost. Examples of the topics covered in the book's nineteen chapters include: punches and dies, stock guides and pilots, strippers, press selection, binding, blank development, design of strips and stampings, carbide dies, die material selection, design practices, EDM, mathematics and angle calculations, lubrication, sensors and die protection, and more.
Advances in sensor technology and in digital positioner and variable speed drive algorithms, combined with smart features, offer a step change in the performance of modern measurement instruments and final elements. The installed accuracy of many smart instruments has increased by an order of magnitude. There has been a correspondingly dramatic reduction in the drift of transmitters and a similar improvement in the resolution of control valves. This comprehensive resource aims to increase awareness of the opportunities afforded by modern measurement instruments and final elements, and to show how to get maximum benefit from the revolution in smart technologies. It builds an understanding of the fundamental aspects of measurements, measurement instruments, and final elements for applications in the process industry. The terminology and ideas presented provide a firm foundation for subsequent chapters that focus on what is needed for lowest life-cycle cost and best automation system performance. The last chapter provides a comprehensive exploration of the technology that supports the rapidly expanding opportunities of WirelessHART instrumentation. No prior plant experience with industrial process instrumentation is required. For students and new employees, the chapters on fundamentals will improve productivity on the job and form a basis for further study. For the seasoned veteran, the book offers insights and serves as a guide through today's myriad automation products and application details. It provides a picture of the state of the art for 95 per cent of the field instrumentation and final elements used, or under consideration, in a modern process plant. The reader is encouraged to seek further information on particular types of measurement instruments and final elements, which is available from manufacturers via the Internet and in instrumentation handbooks and ISA publications.
