Konventionelle Planungssysteme sind meist nicht in der Lage, maschinentaugliche Produktionspläne ohne menschliche Intervention herzustellen. Die Inkompatibilität der planungsrelevanten Daten wird, neben der großen Anzahl zu berücksichtigender Restriktionen, immer noch als größtes technisches Problem angesehen. Die Transpondertechnologie RFID soll sicherstellen, dass künftig Material- und Datenfluss im Gleichklang erfolgen. Die Lösungsansätze API und SCEM beschäftigen sich mit der Handhabung von unvorhergesehenen Ereignissen und deren Auswirkung auf die Produktion. Trotz vieler Innovationen für Planungsverfahren wird es noch einige Jahre dauern, bis ein Kundenauftrag komplett automatisch in die Planung mit einbezogen, gefertigt und ausgeliefert wird, ohne dass die Notwendigkeit von menschlichem Eingreifen besteht.
Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Public Relations, Werbung, Marketing, Social Media, Note: 2,1, Hochschule Mittweida (FH), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit Hilfe erlebnisorientierter Werte gelingt es am erfolgreichsten, eine Marke in den Köpfen der Zielgruppe zu verankern. Aus diesem Grund haben veränderte Kundenbedürfnisse neue Rahmenbedingungen zur Folge, und stellen eine Herausforderung für Unternehmen dar. Gerade in der Automobilindustrie ist es deshalb beachtlich, auf innovative Formen der Markenkommunikation mit Hilfe der passenden Instrumente zurückzugreifen, um die Rezipienten emotional und multisensual zu erreichen. Neben der Verwendung klassischer und innovativer Kommunikationsinstrumente, in Abstimmung auf die Zielgruppen, sind die Unternehmen angehalten, in eine individuelle Kundenbetreuung zu investieren. Die Bedeutung innovativer Kommunikationsinstrumente im modernen Marketing ist dennoch kritisch zu bewerten. Innovative Formen der Markenkommunikation erweitern das Repertoire an Kommunikationsmitteln. Entscheidend bleibt die passende Form der Kommunikation auszuwählen, um die fokussierte Zielgruppe erfolgreich anzusprechen.

Despite recent advances, therapeutic efforts have not been successful establishing a definitive strategy of treatment for brain gliomas, because of the presence of the blood-brain barrier. Innovative Brain Tumor Therapy presents a synopsis of the studies on nanoparticles as ideal devices for brain tumor treatment. Their nanometric size, electrostatic charge, and lipophilic characteristics allow them to penetrate into the brain tissue freely. Promising in-vitro results have been reported, but remain to be validated in humans. This title focuses on the blood-brain barrier pathophysiology in brain tumors, and the possibilities of overcoming this with nanoparticle-based systems. Relevant patents of nanoparticles used as drug delivery carriers are also reported, as well as future scenarios in nanoparticles and stem cells. Gerardo Caruso is Neurosurgeon at the Department of Neurosciences, School of Medicine, Neurosurgical Clinic, University of Messina, Italy.
This book is particularly concerned with Chinas path to green development and how it can be understood, exploring questions such as how the goal of Chinese-led green development can be achieved. The book provides systematic explanations of the theory of green development, exploring its background, its theoretical basis, the areas it covers, the stages it encompasses and the constraining and favorable factors involved. We see how humankind is at a period of transition from the traditional black industrial civilization to a modern green ecological civilization. The author gives a profound critique of the traditional Western model of development, provides a comprehensive analysis of the crisis and the opportunities presented by green development and depicts the grand goal of green modernization in a creative, bold, forward-looking manner. A three-step strategy to design and promote green development is proposed. Readers will discover why China must become an innovator, practitioner, and leader of green development, and how green planning is an important means to establish green development. The book explores how local governments can become green innovation practitioners, and how enterprises can become the main arena of green development. This book is a creative and innovative work that will appeal to scholars interested in the long-term development of humankind in general and China in particular. It also serves well as a green development textbook, presenting related scientific knowledge and important information for decision-making in a concise, easy-to-understand form.

The land degradation due to salinity and waterlogging is a global phenomenon, afflicting about one billion hectares within the sovereign borders of at least 75 countries. Besides staring at the food security, it has far reaching and unacceptable socio-economic consequences since a large proportion of this land is inhabited by smallholder farmers. The anthropogenic-environmental changes and the climate change are further adding to the problem of salinity and waterlogging. The phenomenon of sea-level rise will bring more areas under waterlogged salinity due to inundation by sea water. Thus, dealing with the salinity in reality is becoming a highly onerous task owing to its complex nature, uncertainty and differential temporal and spatial impacts. Nevertheless, with the need to provide more food, feed, fuel, fodder and fiber to the expanding population, and non-availability of new productive land, there is a need for productivity enhancement of these lands. In fact, the salt-affected and waterlogged lands cannot be neglected since huge investments have been made throughout the world in the development of irrigation and drainage infrastructure. The social, economic and environmental costs being high for theon-and/off-farm reclamation techniques, saline agriculture including agroforestry inculcated with modern innovative techniques, is now emerging as a potential tool not only for arresting salinity and waterlogging but for other environmental services like mitigate climate change, sequester carbon and biodiversity restoration. This publication attempts to address a wide range of issues, principles and practices related to the salinity involved in rehabilitation of waterlogged saline soils and judicious use of saline waters including sea water. Many of the site specific case studies typical to the saline environment including coastal ecologies sustaining productivity, rendering environmental services, conserving biodiversity and mitigating climate change have been described in detail. Written by leading researchers and experts of their own fields, the book is a must, not only for salinity experts but also for policy makers, environmentalists, students and educationists alike. More importantly, it contributes to reversing the salinity trends and teaches to sustain with salinity ensuring the livelihood of resource-poor farming families leaving in harsh ecologies including coastal areas which are more vulnerable to climate change.

This volume gathers contributions reflecting topics presented during an INDAM workshop held in Rome in May 2016. The event brought together many prominent researchers in both Mathematical Analysis and Numerical Computing, the goal being to promote interdisciplinary collaborations. Accordingly, the following thematic areas were developed: 1. Lagrangian discretizations and wavefront tracking for synchronization models; 2. Astrophysics computations and post-Newtonian approximations; 3. Hyperbolic balance laws and corrugated isometric embeddings; 4. Caseology techniques for kinetic equations; 5. Tentative computations of compressible non-standard solutions; 6. Entropy dissipation, convergence rates and inverse design issues. Most of the articles are presented in a self-contained manner; some highlight new achievements, while others offer snapshots of the state of the art in certain fields. The book offers a unique resource, both for young researchers looking to quickly enter a given area of application, and for more experienced ones seeking comprehensive overviews and extensive bibliographic references.
