Design, simulation, manufacturability, and prototyping: All of these phases are being pushed forward and progressively by underlying technologies.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesnít come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
Thereís a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
Pressure vessels are part of common equipment utilized in plants to store liquids and gases under high pressure. It is certain that pressurized fluids will develop stresses in the vessel, which when exceeds failure limits, will lead to hazardous incidents and fatalities.
Unlike a mission statement, goals, objectives, and requirements are tools that will be used actively in the sourcing project once it reaches the decision-making stage.
