Download Informationsmanagement: Theoretischer Anspruch und by Hartmut Schellmann PDF

By Hartmut Schellmann

Das Thema Informationsmanagement wird stark von Modeströmungen beeinflußt. Umfassende Theoriesysteme und aktuelle empirische Erkenntnisse fehlen weitgehend. Hartmut Schellmann vergleicht den aktuellen Stand der wissenschaftlichen Diskussion mit der betrieblichen Praxis des Informationsmanagements. Der Autor arbeitet die in einer breit angelegten Erhebung in deutschen Großunternehmen und Systemhäusern gesammelten Daten auf und vergleicht sie mit ausgewählten Referenzuntersuchungen der letzten zehn Jahre aus dem deutschen und angelsächsischen Raum. Hieraus ergeben sich umfassende Erkenntnisse über Konfiguration und Funktion des Informationsmanagements. Die unterschiedlichen Erhebungszeitpunkte ermöglichen Tendenzaussagen zu vielen Themen wie zum Beispiel dem Projektmanagement.

By David E. Andrews (auth.), R. W. Fast (eds.)

The 1987 joint Cryogenic Engineering Conference/International Cryogenic fabrics convention used to be held on the Pheasant Run hotel, St. Charles, lliinois from June 14 to 18. Fermi nationwide Accelerator Laboratory, positioned a number of kilometers from Pheasant Run, used to be the host for this convention. there's a good deal of cryogenic study and improvement underway at Fermilab and lots of purposes of cryogenic fabrics and structures are in rou­ tine, day-by-day use on the Tevatron. The technical application for the joint convention had over three hundred invited and contributed papers from many alternative nations. The CEC board and i've attempted to dramatically shorten the booklet time of this quantity of Advances in Cryogenic Engineering. to be able to support meet the target of the February e-book, I requested the reviewers to accomplish their studies earlier than leaving Pheasant Run, after the convention. i want to thank the entire reviewers for his or her urged and throughtful studies. I a great deal savor the authors following the prescribed structure and responding fast to my requests for revisions.

By Ronald A. Chadderton

Purposeful Engineering Economics stands as a distinct and hugely unique supplement to the conventional engineering economics curriculum. This basically narrative textual content conveys the essence of an "Austrian" financial viewpoint on money circulation research and selection making in engineering with out vast tables and graphs and calls for little or no arithmetic. The book’s target is so as to add a brand new standpoint to the standard research of money stream research and exclusively econometric engineering choice making. the writer attracts at the technique of the Austrian Economists—a college of monetary idea that bases its learn of financial phenomena at the interpretation and research of the practical activities of people. The e-book contains an array of illustrative case experiences tested intimately by means of the writer and emphasizes the significance of industry strategies and value indications to coordinate engineering plans.

By J. B. Vos, C. M. Bergman (auth.), C. A. Brebbia, A. Peters, D. Howard (eds.)

This publication includes an edited model of the court cases of the second Interna­ tional convention on functions of Supercomputers in Engineering which came about on the Massachusetts Institute of know-how, Cambridge, united states in the course of August 1991. The convention used to be prepared by means of the Wessex Insti­ tute of know-how, Southampton, united kingdom with the help of the overseas Society for Boundary components. the 1st overseas convention on Ap­ plications of Supercomputers in Engineering held in Southampton, united kingdom in September 1989 used to be a really profitable assembly and the ensuing convention lawsuits are actually broadly disbursed through the international. The innovative points of the subsequent new release of desktops at the moment are absolutely acknowledged via many engineers and scientists. Vector and parallel desktops shape the root of the computing strength had to tackle the complicated prob­ lems with which engineers are confronted. the hot machines not just elevate the dimensions of the issues which might be solved, but additionally require a unique computational method of receive the best results.

Download Methane Conversion by Oxidative Processes: Fundamental and by J. H. Lunsford (auth.), E. E. Wolf (eds.) PDF

By J. H. Lunsford (auth.), E. E. Wolf (eds.)

A average case may be made that the clinical curiosity in catalytic oxidation was once the foundation for the popularity of the phenomenon of catalysis. Davy, in his try in 1817 to appreciate the technology linked to the security lamp he had invented many years prior, undertook a sequence of reviews that led him to make the statement jet of gasoline, essentially methane, could reason a platinum twine to proceed to glow even if the flame used to be extinguished and there has been no obvious flame. Dobereiner pronounced in 1823 the result of an identical research and saw that spongy platina might reason the ignition of a circulate of hydrogen in air. according to this commentary Dobereiner invented the 1st lighter. His lighter hired hydrogen (generated from zinc and sulfuric acid) which omitted finely divided platinum and which ignited the gasoline. millions of those lighters have been used over a few years. Dobereiner refused to dossier a patent for his lighter, commenting that "I love technological know-how greater than money." Davy inspiration the motion of platinum was once the results of warmth whereas Dobereiner believed the ~ffect ~as a manifestation of electrical energy. Faraday took an interest within the topic and released a paper on it in 1834; he concluded that the reason for this response used to be just like different reactions.
