This book provides extensive insights and analysis into pricing models for autonomous manufacturing. Taking a cost engineering approach, it shows how businesses facing technological change can provide visibility to pricing sensitivity and maximize price, and profit in every transaction. The book pulls together the many elements of cost engineering; cost estimation, cost control, business planning and management, profitability analysis, cost risk analysis and project management, planning, and scheduling, and considers the many different approaches and methods for estimating or assessing costs. It aims to help companies with decision making, cost management, and budgeting with respect to product development, and highlights the importance of cost estimation during the early stages of product development.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process in which a three-dimensional object is built by adding subsequent layers of materials. AM enables novel material compositions and shapes, often without the need for specialized tooling. This technology has the potential to revolutionize how mechanical parts are created, tested, and certified. However, successful real-time AM design requires the integration of complex systems and often necessitates expertise across domains. Simulation-based design approaches, such as those applied in engineering product design and material design, have the potential to improve AM predictive modeling capabilities, particularly when combined with existing knowledge of the underlying mechanics....
Helping human research protection program professionals create, implement, and evaluate quality assurance/quality improvement programs.Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement Handbook for Human Research is the first comprehensively designed instructional manual aimed at teaching human research protection program (HRPP) professionals how to create, implement, evaluate, and improve QA/QI programs. Geared toward institutions and individuals responsible for establishing new QA/QI programs or functions, the book offers several organizational models for consideration. It also provides practical information for improving and strengthening established programs, both big and small.Written in a conversational style, the book's step-by-step instructions make it easily accessible to those who may not be well versed in QA/QI concepts and fundamentals.
The principles and applications of friction-stir welding, a solid-state metal joining widely used to weld aluminum and its composites, are assessed. Friction stir processing, a novel process developed for microstructural modification of metallic materials, is also discussed. Academic studies and current sectoral applications of friction stir welding in shipbuilding are examined in detail. In addition, general literature reviews related to the joining of aluminum and steel with friction stir welding are explored. The authors examine past research comparing the friction stir welding and submerged friction stir welding, use of different medium under which the welding is performed, design and process parameters, applications and possibility of future research. In the closing study, a microstructural and statistical approach is performed to obtain a high strength welded joint in the dissimilar friction stir welding of AA 7075 and AA 6013 aluminum alloys.
