Driving Decisions & Mitigating Risk in Product Development Lifecycle

Achuth Rao, VP of Product Management at Elsevier, will discuss information challenges in the Chemicals & Materials Industry, and share how chemists, engineers, toxicologist, and regulatory and safety professional are collaborating to increase productivity and decision making.

He will walk through information needs and use case examples specific to scientific and commercial companies, and demonstrate how Elsevier solution Chemtiva (in beta) leverages best in class data science techniques and technologies in this new digital industry paradigm.

Additional information:

Decisions in the Chemicals & Materials Industry product life cycle are exposed to increased business risk and challenges driven by micro and macroeconomic factors including:
- increasing energy & raw material prices
- increasing competition due to globalization
- need for accelerated innovation to meet customer demands
- increasing regulatory compliance and sustainability requirements.

Companies are looking for new digitization-related opportunities to drive operational changes and efficiencies and to help reduce risks around supply chain, competition, environmental, regulations, and safety across their product life cycle. Invaluable insights for risk mitigation and decision making can be gained from internal and external sources. The challenge lies in having this information in one place and offered in an actionable way to increase collaboration and productivity across the stage gate process in research, development & scale-up, and manufacturing.

  • Applying Principles of Effective Teaching to Online Instruction in Engineering Aug 14 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dr. Sarah Wilson and Dr. David Silverstein, University of Kentucky
    The rapid transition to online instruction under emergent conditions in Spring 2020 occurred without much opportunity for reflection or literature review. As most universities prepare for at least some level of online delivery of their Fall courses, there is now an opportunity to take advantage of the prior research and experiences of other instructors in teaching engineering courses online. To support this effort, this webinar will present an overview of some ways to address key aspects of online instruction as learned through our own personal experiences and supported by the literature. Based on the assertion that effective teaching online follows the same fundamental principles associated with effective teaching in general, we will present tested approaches for both lecture and laboratory classes that are designed to support active engagement, community building, and achievement of course outcomes.
  • Interactivity Boosts Student Engagement in Engineering Courses Aug 12 2020 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Matthew Liberatore
    Whether online, remote, hybrid, or in person, all classroom activities can be designed to create student engagement and measure student learning.
    Today’s digital tools are creating big data that can help students and faculty improve learning outcomes. Even prior to classroom instruction, interactive textbooks can create an incentive for students to put time into learning the basic definitions and relationships. During class, applying and analyzing engineering problems can be completed using a range of active learning techniques. When teaching remotely, techniques like polling can provide valuable real-time feedback to the instructor. Professor Matthew Liberatore reviews a number of other tactics that will reinforce learning, improve student engagement, and equip faculty with data needed to help achieve learning outcomes, especially when many institutions are shifting towards socially-distant learning.

  • Developing Sustainable Groundwater Management Strategies Recorded: Jun 24 2020 45 mins
    Sandra Merten
    Preparing for the world’s future water resource needs is growing increasingly complex. According to the 2020 United Nations World Water Development Report, the use of water has grown 6x in the past 100 years with continual growth expected. Increased demand, plus the effects of global climate change, will stretch water resources to its max.

    Aquifers can store water, but the unintended consequences of consumption present a threat to groundwater resources. Overexploitation of groundwater resources is leading to groundwater quality deterioration and depletion, ecosystem degradation, land subsidence and seawater intrusion. Therefore, it is essential to manage groundwater resources in a sustainable way.

    In this webinar, you will learn more about how you can leverage information and data from scientific studies on groundwater resources to get an overview of the groundwater quality in your area of interest, which can support the development of sustainable groundwater management strategies.

    Sandra Merten, Senior Product Manager of Geofacets, will demonstrate how to:
    •Find published maps, tables, plots, and associated article information quickly using Geofacets to get an overview of the published data for the area of interest
    •Use maps, tables and associated information from Geofacets in Excel and ArcGIS to analyze the data and gain geospatial insights
  • Countdown to Compliance: NFPA 652: Fundamentals of Combustible Dust Recorded: Jun 11 2020 46 mins
    Ron Melucci, P.E.
    Explosion hazards exist in many industrial processes involving powders and other fine particulate that can form when the dusts become suspended in air.

    The degree of hazard is affected by many variables such as particle size, moisture content, concentration of dust in the cloud and ignition-source energy.

    The foremost industry guidance for preventing and mitigating these explosions are the NFPA standards:
    - NFPA 652: Standard on the Fundamentals of Combustible Dust
    - NFPA 654 Standard for the Prevention of Fire and Dust Explosions from the Manufacturing, Processing, and Handling of Combustible Particulate Solids

    This webinar will highlight the requirements and guidelines, including recent changes to NFPA 652 that mandate "Dust Hazard Assessment (DHA)" for all facilities, existing and new.


    This Webinar will benefit:
    - Anyone involved with industrial safety, especially involving manufacture, process, blend, conveying, generating, and/or handling of combustible dusts or combustible particulate solids.
    - Includes industries such as chemical processing and manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food, plastic, rubber, metals, textiles, wood, paper and agrochemicals.


    Learning Objectives:
    * Understanding the key requirements of the applicable NFPA standards
    * Understanding the Dust Hazard Assessment (DHA) requirements and methodology
    * Understanding practical risk mitigation/improvements that can be made based on the requirements of NFPA 652.


    Speaker:
    Ronald Melucci, P.E. is a Technical Manager in the Fire Protection and Risk Services Division of Engineering Planning and management (EPM), Inc.

    He is a fire protection engineer with 25 years of consulting experience, has published many technical articles and papers and is a regular speaker on various fire protection and process safety topics.
