Metabolic engineering is a rapidly evolving field that is being applied for the optimization of many different industrial processes. In this issue of Advances in Biochemical Engineering/Biotechnology, developments in different areas of metabolic engineering are reviewed. The contributions discuss the application of metabolic engineering in the improvement of yield and productivity - illustrated by amino acid production and the production of novel compounds - in the production of polyketides and extension of the substrate range - and in the engineering of S. cerevisiae for xylose metabolism, and the improvement of a complex biotransformation process.

This is the "green book" that started it all -- the first book in English on JIT, written from the engineer's viewpoint. When Omark Industries bought 500 copies and studied it companywide, Omark became the American pioneer in JIT. Here is Dr. Shingo's classic industrial engineering rationale for the priority of process-based over operational improvements in manufacturing. He explains the basic mechanisms of the Toyota production system, examines production as a functional network of processes and operations, and then discusses the mechanism necessary to make JIT possible in any manufacturing plant. Provides original source material on Just-ln-Time Demonstrates new ways to think about profit, inventory, waste, and productivity Explains the principles of leveling, standard work procedures, multi-machine handling, supplier relations, and much more If you are a serious student of manufacturing, you will benefit greatly from reading this primary resource on the powerful fundamentals of JIT.

Schutz des "Know-how" gegen ausspähende Produktanalysen ("Reverse Engineering")


Author: Kai Kochmann

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 3899496868

Category: Law

Page: 297

The development and legal purchase of "know-how" are costly. Accordingly, for companies in possession of "know-how" it is of vital interest to ensure that competitors do not gain access to their specialized knowledge. Taking this fact into consideration, this work concentrates on a problem area that has yet to be debated in depth, namely the distinction between protected and unprotected know-how in the case of "reverse engineering," which is the acquiring of construction and programming knowledge by dismantling and reverse development.
