one of the greatest medical challenges facing medical technology preservation of ethics related to life
three key deliverables for sucessful manufactoring technology systems quality, service and cost
three common features shared by manufactoring technology systems integration, automation, and computerization
utilized to increase the accuracy and reduce the time required for research computer aided design
focused externally on relationships with customers agile manufactoring
many operations use this to build a production schedule materials requirements planning
used before mass production to build a model and check the design of the product rapid prototyping
used to schieve cellular manufactoring which often maximizes efficiency by grouping together similar tasks group technology
a product's fitness for use quality
the given name for quality function developement house of quality
a mathematical tool used to evaluate a process for consistency statistical process control
which line represents the numerical average of the data for product actually generated by the process center line
developement of a technological product or process in one setting, whcih is transferred for use in another setting technology transfer
4 elements of technology transfer transfer item, technology donor, technology recipient, technology transfer channel
the channel is the formal or informal route through which technological atrifacts travel from the supplier to the end user technology transfer channel
underlying motive in a technology transfer exchange significant return on investment and desire to gain market access
usually made with commercial considerations in mind, and parent firm claiming either full or partial ownership of the foreign subsidiary foreign direct investments
reduced costs, avoid duties, efficient distribution donor
provides labor, material

usually made with commercial considerations in mind, and parent firm claiming either full or partial ownership of the foreign subsidiary foreign direct investments
reduced costs, avoid duties, efficient distribution donor
provides labor, materials, sometimes incentives recipient
usually the parent firm retains no quity interest in the plant after its completion turnkey plants
imported technological advice is dissembled, examined and copied by the recipient reverse engineering
informal technology transfer channels plant tours, seminars, scientific publications, training and education programs, trade shows
2 vantage points that the rate of diffusion of technology is measured by immitation lag and demand lag
how long it takes for other countries to obtain production capabilities to produce or reverse engineer the same product imitation lag
how long it takes for the product to gain acceptance in the foreign market demand lag
a perspective based upon knowledge which supports the need for harmony between industrial objectives and environmental goals modern environmentalism
commonly found to overshadow environmental problems world peace and economic concerns
