Advances in Production Technology by Christian Brecher (eds.)

By Christian Brecher (eds.)

This edited quantity includes the chosen papers offered on the medical board assembly of the German Cluster of Excellence on “Integrative creation expertise for High-Wage Countries”, held in November 2014. The topical constitution of the publication is clustered in six classes: Integrative creation know-how, Individualised creation, digital construction platforms, built-in applied sciences, Self-Optimising creation platforms and Human elements in creation know-how. The Aachen standpoint on a holistic idea of construction is complemented by way of convention papers from exterior prime researchers within the fields of creation, fabrics technological know-how and bordering disciplines. the objective viewers essentially includes learn specialists and practitioners within the box however the publication can also be necessary for graduate students.

Best alternative & renewable books

Alternative Energy

This three-volume set introduces researchers to concerns surrounding either present power assets and replacement strength ideas. whereas there's major dialogue of the non-renewable assets now used to satisfy the vast majority of the world's power wishes (oil, coal and average gas), the first concentration of the set is on more moderen ideas to fulfill the ever-growing call for.

Living Water: Viktor Schauberger and the Secrets of Natural Energy

This is often the tale of a pioneering Austrian naturalist and iconoclast who pointed how to a totally new knowing of the great capability of traditional strength. via learning fish in streams and by means of heavily looking at the ordinary water cycle, Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) was once in a position to remedy uncomplicated difficulties of power transformation.

Research Approaches to Sustainable Biomass Systems

Researchers, scholars and engineers operating with biofuels and biomass are more and more anticipated to realize a brand new holistic structures viewpoint that starts off with clever crop breeding and cultivation ideas and informs the full conversion to strength technique. This quantity presents various examples of effectively carried out sustainable biomass learn in Asia, highlighting the demanding situations confronted through designers of recent biomass construction amenities and the right way to enhance methods to beat them.

6 Extension of the basic model of a general production theory in business administration 34 J. Becker and P. Nyhuis and overall into a product portfolio. Within the performance system there are transform elements: process, machine, system, production location and production network, to which the support functions of test and measuring equipment, technical control and logistic control have been added. In order to develop a theory of production technology, it is necessary to determine submodels within and between the transform elements and to derive hypotheses from these.

Thus, it is important to develop an understanding of the different elements that constitute this ecosystem which go far beyond sole manufacturing resources and industrial users. 1 provides an overview of the components of such an ecosystem. Though AM is a manufacturing technology, it needs to be considered in the context of digital value chain activities (Brody and Pureswaran 2013; Rayna and Striukova 2014). This is why the ecosystem encompasses activities along a combination of both a conventional manufacturing value chain and a digital value chain of content (product design) creation and distribution.

T. Piller et al. needs, local producers may outperform established manufacturers of standard goods. The benefits of offering a better product fit may outweigh disadvantages in manufacturing costs due to economies of scales achievable by the established firm with its standard offering. A system of entrepreneurial user manufacturers could have large impact on the market structure in a given industry. Interestingly, entrepreneurs do not need to acquire their own manufacturing resources. Instead, they might use the existing AM ecosystem and rely on a 3D printing service (like Shapeways, as described before) or contract manufacturer to produce their goods—the interface is rather simple: the product’s 3D design file.
