  • Lean Innovation (VDI-Buch) (German Edition) by Günther Schuh

    By Günther Schuh

    Erfolgreiche Unternehmen verfolgen eine nachhaltige Innovationsstrategie und setzen diese konsequent um. Innovationspotenziale richtig zu erkennen, einzuschätzen und zielgenau umzusetzen ist eine Stärke, die Wettbewerbsvorteile und damit hohe Profitabilität ermöglicht. Dabei sind die Randbedingungen bei der Gestaltung des Innovationsmanagements vielfältig: erhöhter Kostendruck, rasche Technologiewandel und schwer abzuschätzende Marktpotenziale stehen limitierten Entwicklungsbudgets und ambitionierten Zeitplänen gegenüber. Um diesen spezifischen Herausforderungen systematisch begegnen zu können, stellt der Autor einen ganzheitlichen Ansatz zur Übertragung des „Lean Thinking“-Ansatzes auf den Innovationsprozess vor. Operationalisiert wird dieser durch die vier Leitprinzipien „Eindeutig Priorisieren“, „Früh Strukturieren“, „Einfach Synchronisieren“ und „Sicher Adaptieren“. Jedes Leitprinzip wird anschaulich und detailliert beschrieben und anhand von Praxisbeispielen unterschiedlicher Branchen verdeutlicht.

  • Switched Reluctance Motor Drives: Modeling, Simulation, by R. Krishnan

    By R. Krishnan

    The switched reluctance desktop (SRM) is the lowest priced electric laptop to supply, but the most trustworthy. As such, learn has blossomed over the last decade, and the SRM and variable force platforms utilizing SRMs are receiving enormous awareness from undefined. simply because they require an influence digital converter and controller to operate, even if, profitable cognizance of an SRM variable force method calls for an figuring out of the converter and controller subsystems and their integration with the machine.

    Switched Reluctance Motor Drives offers that realizing. It offers a unified view of the computing device and its force procedure from all of its procedure and subsystem features. With a cautious stability of idea and implementation, the writer develops the research and layout of SRMs from first ideas, introduces a wide selection of strength converters on hand for riding the SRM, and systematically provides either low- and high-performance controllers. The e-book contains an in-depth examine of acoustic noise and its minimization besides program examples that come with comparisons among ac and dc drives and SRM drive.

    The result's the 1st e-book that gives a state of the art wisdom of SRMs, energy converters, and their use with either sensor-based and sensorless controllers. Switched Reluctance Motor Drives allows either scholars and engineers to profit all facets of SRM force platforms and enjoy the interdependence of a few of the subsystems in functionality optimization.

  • Systematic Modeling and Analysis of Telecom Frontends and by Piet Vanassche,Georges Gielen,Willy M Sansen

    By Piet Vanassche,Georges Gielen,Willy M Sansen

    to satisfy the calls for of trendy hugely aggressive industry, analog electronics designers needs to boost their IC designs in at the least time. the variation among first- and second-time correct heavily impacts a
    company's proportion of the marketplace. Analog designers are for that reason in want for established layout equipment including the idea and instruments to aid them, specially while pushing the functionality limits in high-performance
    designs. Systematic Modeling and research of Telecom Frontends and Their construction Blocks goals to assist designers in rushing up telecommunication frontend layout via providing an in-depth figuring out of the frontend's behavior
    including tools and algorithms that help designers in bringing this knowing to perform. The ebook treats issues comparable to time-varying phase-locked loop balance, noise in blending circuits, oscillator injection
    locking, oscillator section noise habit, harmonic oscillator dynamics and lots of extra. In doing so, it usually starts off from a theoretical origin that's either rigorous and normal. Phase-locked loop and mixer research, for
    instance, are grounded upon a basic framework for time-varying small-signal research. Likewise, research of harmonic oscillator brief habit and oscillator section noise research are handled as specific purposes of
    a normal framework for oscillator perturbation research. on the way to make the ebook as effortless to learn as attainable, all thought is usually observed via various examples and easy-to-catch intuitive reasons. As such, the book
    is suited to either computer-aided layout engineers searching for normal theories and strategies, both as history fabric or for sensible implementation in instruments, in addition to for practising circuit designers searching for help
    and perception in facing a specific program or a specific high-performance layout problem.
