The present proposal contributes to improved eco efficiency in the global value chain in the electronics and automotive industries. The starting point is the rising demand for better eco-efficient products and services, provoked by public opinion, and being incorporated into legislation world wide. One leader of this movement is the European Union, but other major economic regions around the world are joining up (e.g. US regarding GHG Emissions ). Customer driven requirements and company strategic aims (eg. reduction of C02 emission) go beyond the law and are becoming integral to company policies. For global the electronic and automotive industries, eco efficient products within an efficient sustainability strategy combine to be a decisive point, ruling future developments on the market. Large OEM companies have internalized this global trend and passed the requirements on to their suppliers. Due to these complicated and dynamic requirements, suppliers are frequently overwhelmed. The lack of data and insufficient integration into operational internal processes lead to the rejection of these requirements. Therefore, until, now management of sustainability strategies across the supply chain has not been solved. SustainHub will provide a systematic and efficient approach to collect sustainability data for products and manufacturing processes through the supply chain and integrate these into the internal systems and processes of the companies. Target industries are electronic and automotive production sector. These are both essential pillars of the European economy, representing in the EU27, no less than 6 million employees and a 347 billion combined production value. Therefore, a better management of supply chain data and sustainability data will improve the eco efficiency performance of product design and production, but also preserve the European competitive position.

Confocal Raman microscopy is a powerful tool for research and analysis in the chemical, materials and life sciences, particularly for non-destructive depth profiling of transparent systems. Unfortunately, many Raman microscopes are not optimally configured for this purpose, and so yield unnecessarily low signal-to-noise spectra with poor spatial resolution and grossly incorrect depth scales. This review discusses the aberrations and artefacts that can arise and describes how these can be avoided by adhering to a few basic principles that are well known to optical microscopists but which were largely ignored in the spectroscopic community for many years. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2010.

An apparatus and method for assessing a hazard associated with an object are disclosed. The apparatus includes a haptic input/output device coupled to a computer with haptic modeling software and a display device. A virtual object and a virtual passageway are displayed on the display device. The virtual passageway includes a haptic layer along a surface thereof. Force applied by a user to the haptic input/output device causes a cursor on the display device to move the virtual object into the virtual passageway. An interaction of the virtual object with the haptic layer generates a virtual contact force which may be determined by the user sensing a corresponding tactile feedback force generated by the haptic input/output device and/or by the computer processor. The magnitude of the virtual contact force may be used to assess a hazard associated with the virtual object.

The invention relates to a method for analysing a blend of two or more hydrocarbon feed streams such as crude oils. These crude oils are blended in a facility such as a refinery. The method assesses the compatibility of a hydrocarbon feed in a blend to calculate the blend stability such that organic deposition is minimised. The method uses all of a plurality of hydrocarbon feeds to be blended for analysis. The method either selects a neat hydrocarbon feed, from a plurality of the hydrocarbon feeds included in a blend, as a titrant, wherein the or each other hydrocarbon in the hydrocarbon feed are used to make a pseudo-blend and titrating the pseudo-blend with said selected neat hydrocarbon feed for a plurality of different blend ratios. Alternatively the method involves preparing a reference hydrocarbon and making a blend from the plurality of hydrocarbon feeds and titrating the blend with the reference hydrocarbon. Measurements associated with the change in characteristics of the titrated blend are made and data recorded. The method then calculates, using said data, the stability of the blend.

A locking retractor is disclosed, as are stretchers and cots using the retractor to secure a patient. The retractor includes structure for locking the retractor spool to prevent rotation in both directions. However, a cam is coupled to the shaft and is arranged relative to the locking structure to prevent the spool from locking during an initial portion of the spools rotation, until a first locking point is reached. Once the first locking point has been reached, a clutch prevents the locking structure from engaging while the spool is still rotating, but the locking structure will engage to lock the spool in both directions once active rotation stops. A user-actuatable lever is provided externally that disengages the locking structure when actuated to allow the spool to extend and retract freely.

Systems and methods are provided for generating a certificate of compliance for a product. A product control system (PCS) retrieves specification and/or regulatory data for a particular product and compares the retrieved data to test result data obtained for that particular product. The PCS generates a product certification if the test result data indicates that the product is in compliance with the specification data and/or the regulatory data. A product test plan generation system (PTPGS) enables a user to interact with a user interface to retrieve a test plan for a particular product. The test plan can be used to obtain test results for the particular product.
