The development of proactive methods for the evaluation, selection, standardization, and rationalization of capital equipment and services used in the medical device industry will benefit equipment/process interchangeability and will result in lower costs of goods (COG). Reduced exposures to legal and regulatory issues are also... READ MORE
The objective of this study was to determine the reasons for moisture ingress in ready to drink mixes. The containers for this product were supposed to be moisture resistant. However, after a certain period it was observed that the product inside was prone to caking... READ MORE
The following document will explore product and information integration by demonstrating the potential economic, strategic, and technical benefits attainable in the Engineering Change Order/Preliminary Change Order function. Information is the foundation of today's corporate enterprise. An organization's success can depend on how effectively it identifies,... READ MORE
The logistic normal distribution has recently been adapted via the transformation of multivariate Gaussian variables to model the topical distribution of documents in the presence of correlations among topics. In this paper, we propose a probit normal alternative approach to modelling correlated topical structures.... READ MORE
Food can be preserved by irradiation which is the exposure of food to ionising radiation, high energy electron from electron beams or X-rays or gamma rays from Cobalt-60 or Cesium-137 radioisotopes. Irradiation does not leave a residue in the food and it does not... READ MORE
Waxed solid bleached sulfate paperboard and polyethylene coated paperboard were compared for the purpose of containing frozen fish sticks. The main emphasis focused on the safety of the board in regards to the migration of particles from either the wax or the polyethylene. The results... READ MORE
Studies show that many small and medium businesses (SMBs) that have implemented environmental management systems (EMSs) and got certified to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard experienced obstacles along the way. For SMBs the standards appear unnecessarily bureaucratic, and represent a way of working... READ MORE
Concavity is a major concern of manufacturers in every region. Concavity occurs as a process of die cutting foam. During die cutting, hydraulic pressure is applied. The compression from die causes concavity in foam sheets. The experiment was conducted using eight different dies and 2different... READ MORE
In a post-Enron world, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act holds the highest corporate officers of publicly held corporations personally accountable with regard to financial reporting. This project examines the requirements of the law, risks of not complying the law, how Sarbanes-Oxley has impacted environmental health and safety... READ MORE
The purpose of this research was to investigate the effect of oxygen permeation from adding a high barrier shrink film to PET beer bottles at ambient temperature and humidity. The testing method used for this research is based off ASTM D 3985 'Standard Test Method... READ MORE
Rochester Institute of Technology's Laser Safety Manual and Training Guide have been created as a recommended safety manual and training guide to help laser users work with lasers and laser systems in a safe manner. Standard operating procedures and protocols have been provided in... READ MORE
