11. BPMN Profile for Operational Requirements
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 6/2/2014
Authors: Conrad E Bock, Raphael Barbau, Anantha Narayanan Narayanan
Abstract: An important aspect of systems and products is how they interact with their environment, including how they are operated. Behaviors external to systems usually involve people not trained in the details of how systems are designed and built, but who ...

12. Carbon Weight Analysis for Machining Operation and Allocation for Redesign
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7560
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 12/16/2009
Authors: Gaurav Ameta, Mahesh Mani, Sudarsan Rachuri, Kevin W Lyons, Shaw C Feng, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: The objective of this research is to explore and develop a new methodology for computing carbon weight (CW) - often referred to as carbon footprint, in manufacturing processes from the part level to assembly level. In this initial study we focused on ...

16. Dynamic Properties for Modeling and Simulation of Machining: An Update of Results from the NIST Pulse-Heated Kolsky Bar
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 5/7/2009
Authors: Timothy J Burns, Steven P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, Eric Paul Whitenton, Debasis Basak
Abstract: The NIST Pulse-Heated Kolsky Bar Laboratory has been developed for the measure-ment of dynamic properties of metals, primarily for application to the study of high-speed machining processes. Because the work material in these processes can be subject ...
