MRP and MRP2 are predecessors of ERP. An effective organization works with a unified database system. This post is intended to explain the need and benefits of such systems. I. Definition: " MRP II is an integrated information system that synchronize all aspects of the business." MRP II system co-ordinates: Sales Purchasing Manufacturing Finance and; Engineering by adopting a focal production plan and by using one unified database to plan and update activities in all the systems.
Though it has been more than a year for me to research in the optimization techniques, and everytime there is a new concept coming over in this field, it every single time puzzles me into finding the best method to find the best values after the global or local search. For readers who are intersested in research work can explore this field more and come up with great ideas which are sometimes from nature itself! So here is a brief overview of a common and recent optimization technique- SWARM PAR
According to Wikipedia, "Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunications engineering, control engineering and computer engineering."
When beginning with a simple mechatronics system, the following three steps are to be followed:
1. Designing of a simple system
2. Setup of the designed system.
3. Implementation of the mechatronic system
Mechatronics system design:
A Generator that is Wearable!!!
This is how a basic generator looks like.
With a lot of moving parts, complicated functions and robust in size, it occupies a lot of space.
Now take a look at this type of generator:
This is the world's thinnest generator, with no moving parts. Moreover its wearable and only a few atoms thick!
This generator works on piezoelectricity. The word piezoelectricity simply means electricity resulting from pressure.
What is Anti-lock braking system (ABS)? Anti-lock braking system (ABS) is an automobile safety system that allows the wheels on a motor vehicle to maintain tractive contact with the road surface according to driver inputs while braking, preventing the wheels from locking up and avoiding uncontrolled skidding. It is an automated system that uses the principles of threshold braking and cadence braking which were practiced by skillful drivers with previous generation braking systems. It does this a
Top 10 New Year Resolutions for A Mechanical Engineer
It will soon be 2015 and everyone has geared up with their own set of new year resolutions. This time let us team up to make resolutions for our community upliftment. Here are some of the ideas that you can add to your new year resolutions list. Good Luck!
1. Keep a Record of New Engineering IDEAS:
All of us get a set of ideas in our field which we just keep as a memory and that slowly fades away. It is always a g
FUTURE ADVANCEMENT IN PELTON WHEEL TURBINE
The most common problem in the Pelton wheel turbine of most of the laboratories functioning is the problem in corrosion and problem in its repair during its breakdown due to its bulky nature. Common solutions for the above mentioned problems are:
· Routine maintenance of Pelton wheel turbine
· Careful handling of the Pelton wheel test rig
· Keeping its parts lubricated regularly
· Replacement of ine
Is Mechanical Engineering Really Good for Girls???
As I just checked my Shoutbox, I came across the most widely asked question by @Corrine Lovato:
“Hello, I am 4th year High school student. And I'm going to take BS Mechanical Engineering. My problem is, I AM A FEMALE. :3 Did you think guys, it suits me? I DO REALLY REALLY LIKE AND LOVE TO BE A MECHANICAL ENGINEERING SOMEDAY.... Any Advice guys? It may help me ) Thank you!! Mechanical Engineers and to be Mechanical
“Your passion is defined by what you breathe every moment, everyday.”
Designing in mechanical engineering is a field which needs a perfect blend of an analytical mind, out of the box thinking, skills and apt knowledge coupled with interest. And the opportunities in this field are abundant for ones looking for it.
Being a student, I found the opportunity to participate in such a competition organized by the Barry Wehmiller International in the competition DesignAce.
The initial ste
