Multidisciplinary approach

Solving water pollution problems today involves a multidisciplinary approach in which the required water quaUty is related to agricultural, municipal, recreational, and industrial requirements. In many cases, a cost—benefit ratio must be estabUshed between the benefit derived from a specified water quaUty and the cost of achieving that quaUty.  [c.221]

All types of PHAs benefit from a multidisciplinary approach. This ensures appropriate technical expertise is available to evaluate each deviation discussed during the sessions. While it is not essential that all team members have had formal training in the PHA method selected, it is important that the team leader has experience. The participation techniques can be learned when a new participant is included as a part of a team in which some members have already gained PHA experience.  [c.90]

The issues outlined above are clearly major challenges for the next generation of shock-wave physicists and engineers. The cross-cutting technical nature of the phenomena produced by shock compression will likely require a multidisciplinary approach for solution. However, the technical problems that remain to be solved delve into the very basic physical and chemical processes that are at the heart of modern-day physics and chemistry research. These problems result in an exciting environment with promising opportunities for the researcher who is willing to tackle difficult basic research problems and the engineer who is exploring new ways of solving practical problems.  [c.360]

In general, it requires a multidisciplinary approach that takes data on toxicological and other relevant properties of chemicals developed in the fields of industrial hygiene, chemistry, toxicology, epidemiology, engineering, occupational medicine, etc., so that interrelated data from all sources combines to give the most rational input upon which to base OELs, even though adequate documentation is not available for the majority of chemical agents.  [c.364]

Multidisciplinary approach for decision making (  [c.134]

The standard requires suppliers to use a multidisciplinary approach for decision making and have the ability to communicate necessary information in a language used by the customer.  [c.134]

Using a multidisciplinary approach (  [c.200]

The standard requires the use of a multidisciplinary approach to prepare for product realization including development and review of special characteristics, FMEA, and control plans.  [c.200]

A multidisciplinary approach is another term for a cross-functional team or a project team. Such teams comprise representatives from each line and staff department so that decisions are taken close to the development work by those who will need to implement the decisions or verify their implementation. Such teams facilitate communication and overcome delays that often occur when reliant upon line-staff relationships. If you have adopted the project management approach this requirement is not additional to that in clause  [c.200]

The standard requires the supplier to develop control plans using a multidisciplinary approach at the system, subsystem, component, and/or material level for pre-launch and production and prototype when required.  [c.208]

The standard requires plant layouts to minimize material travel and handling, synchronize material flow, and optimize value added use of floor space and to use a multidisciplinary approach for developing plant facility and equipment plans.  [c.212]

Why do we perform modeling and simulations (MS) Of eourse, there is no an unique answer to this question. From the point of view of industrial ehemieal reaetion engineering, the eommon goal is to minimize energy and raw material eonsumption and to optimize the yield of the reaetion. Another aim, less obvious but very important, is to ensure safe reaetor operation. So, extensive MS are relatively eheap proeedures whieh frequently give valuable hints contributing to a profitable optimization of the process. From the academic point of view, surface chemical reaction systems are certainly one of the more challenging scientific fields. The understanding of these systems requires a multidisciplinary approach involving many branches of chemistry, physics, mathematics, and materials science, such as, e.g., thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, reaction, collision, and transition state theories, statistical mechanics, theory of nonlinear dynamic processes, crystallography, etc.  [c.390]

The improvements made have been real but, as has been pointed out, some costs not directly associated with deterioration of metal have increased. The potential savings are substantial, and are not confined to industries where corrosion is an obvious problem. In the larger chemical and oil companies corrosion and protection are the responsibility of materials engineering sections, which include specialists in other materials problems as well as in corrosion. These sections are part of the overall engineering organisation, which makes possible the multidisciplinary approach needed to ensure that corrosion advice takes account of other materials aspects, the design methods used in the company, and economic factors. In businesses where general materials problems do not justify a specialist section, corrosion problems are necessarily dealt with on a part time basis by staff of other engineering or scientific backgrounds. External corrosion consultants or advisory services can be a valuable additional resource.  [c.8]

Assessments of this type often involve comparison of artefacts which are substantially different, but which will serve the same purpose. The items concerned are not well defined, and the costs will not be incurred for some time accurate costing is difficult. A multidisciplinary approach is necessary, and a large design organisation will normally have specialist estimating sections possessing data based on recent purchases. Feasibility estimates cause more problems in smaller organisations, and quotations may have to be sought from potential suppliers.  [c.11]

Adequate resources are fundamental to any project, but even more so to a well-functioning health and safety program. Many mishaps have been traced to improperly trained workers, lack of adequate tools and equipment, or requirements for personnel to work excessive hours or at unfamiliar jobs because of inadequate staffing or lack of adequate resources. The multidisciplinary team approach can help to identify required resources and can help balance, identify, and coordinate necessary assets.  [c.55]

While a multidisciplinary team approach is ideally suited to PSM design and installation, it is not the only way. PSM goals can be achieved through the efforts of a single professional, or a small homogeneous task group (for example, facility managers or safety specialists) the process is essentially the same as described here, but on a smaller, more limited scale.  [c.51]

Environmentally degradable polymers face many issues and challenges not apparent or recognized in the early years of research. Their development requires a multidisciplinary approach, involving polymer synthesis chemists, analytical chemists, environmental scientists for estabUshing testing protocols for laboratory simulation of disposal environments, and microbiologists for evaluating the environmental fate and effects of the degradable polymers, their degradation products, and any residues left in the environment. In addition to the scientific issues, there are issues related to perceptions among the pubHc in which strong emotions can play a part, and any new polymer developed as an environmentally degradable product will be scnitinized by consumers of the products it goes into and by national and international legislative bodies for confirmation that it is free from real or perceived adverse environmental effects, before global acceptance can become a reaUty. Thus, environmentally degradable polymers and plastics must meet very stringent guidelines for acceptance by a wide-ranging panel of reviewers. The importance of meeting this requirement is reflected in the search for acceptable definitions for environmentally degradable polymers and new, more meaningful laboratory testing protocols for quantitatively measuring degradation and environmental fate and effects, and correlating the results of these experiments with real-world exposures. Consequently, definitions and test methods are addressed eady in this article, prior to describing the important synthetic approaches under evaluation for environmentally degradable plastics and polymers and identifying some current and potential commercial products.  [c.472]

Among these is COST Action G3 on industrial ventilation. Thi,s action was launched in 1996 and comprises to date more than 60 experts from fourteen COST countries and from institutions of four nonmember countries, its main nh(ective, a.s stipulated in the Memorandum of Understanding of the action. is to produce a basis for a Design Guidebook by a multidisciplinary approach based on gathering rhe expert knowledge which exists internationally, further developing it and making it available for the designers,  [c.1547]
