As an engineer who has been out of school for 35+ years, I have learned that certain processes have their own inherent dangers, e.g. A Refinery can have H2S exposure, Chemical Plants can have steam vacuum jets that cause corrosives to rain down on cold days, etc. Our Company sends engineers to all sorts of facilities and many of the engineers have little plant experience. I am looking for help in pinpointing specific unique hazards that are associated with specific types of facilites, e.g. Refineries, Chemical Plants, Paper and Pulp Processing, Pharamaceuticals, Food Processing, etc.. I am not looking for the general hazards that we find in all facilities. The companies that we visit should have this information, but the smaller companies are not as good at providing this type of information.

Products come in all shapes and sizes, and customers demand solutions tailored to their needs. With mass customization software, these two facts can be reconciled in an automated, customer-facing experience called a product configurator. In this engineering.com research report, we examine the different levels of mass customization with the pyramid of product configurators. Taking a look at real-world case studies, we discover how the highest level of the pyramid can enable true engineering automation, saving time and increasing customer satisfaction. Download Now
We at engineering.com continually hear how engineers and designers will be doing simulation, such as FEA and CFD, and that they will be doing it early in the design cycle. Is this wishful thinking? We found out what it is really like in industry. Read more now. Download Now
