    This book discusses and chronicles various types of manufacturing processes, including casting and molding, machining, joining, shearing, and forming. It refers to repetitive, discrete job shop process manufacturing (continuous) and process manufacturing (batch). It also offers detailed examples from the nuclear, electronic, plastics, adhesives, inks, packaging, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries.

    Advanced Manufacturing Operations Technologies: Principles, Applications, and Design Correlations in Chemical Engineering Fields of Practice fills the gap in the connection between production and regulated applications in several industries. It highlights established concepts and provides a new, fresh outlook by concentrating on and creating linkages in the implementation of practices in manufacturing and safe, clean energy systems. Case studies for the overall design, installations, and construction of manufacturing operations in various industries as well as the standard operating procedures are offered. The book also discusses the correlation between design strategies including step-by-step processes to ensure the reliability, safety, and efficacy of products. The fundamentals of controlled techniques, quality by design, risk assessment, and management are covered in support of operations applications and continuous improvement.

    This comprehensive book is helpful to all professionals, students, and academicians in many scientific disciplines that utilize fundamental principles of chemical engineering. It is engineering-driven and will be of use to those in industrial and manufacturing, chemical, biochemical, mechanical engineering, and automated control systems fields.

    Dr. Sam A. Hout is a chartered chemical engineer and certified in business management by the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS). He also is a member of the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers (ISPE) and specializes in process engineering and business process improvement. He received his education and training in the UK (Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, University of Bath) and in the United States (MBA, University of California). Dr. Hout is currently VP, of technical operations at KC Pharmaceuticals, California. For the past 20 years in drug manufacturing, he held the position of Sr. Director of Engineering, project management, and technology process transfers at SIEGFRIED Pharmaceuticals. Previously, Dr. Hout held the Sr. Manager of Engineering position at TEVA Pharmaceuticals, parenteral medicines in Irvine, California. These specialty divisions produced specialty drugs for hospital institutional markets worldwide. Before assuming the position at Teva, Dr. Hout was Director of Operations at PHENOMENEX, the leading global company in HPLC (High-Performance Liquid Chromatography) for drug separation and analysis. During the past thirty years, Hout has helped to guide leading companies in technical positions such as J&J, Medtronic, and Fischer Scientific in developing and producing oral solid dosage, medical devices, and diagnostic standards that combat disease and promote healthier lives. In working with a global market, Hout travels frequently throughout the United States, Europe, and the Far East. Major accomplishments include designing and constructing various plants, introducing many new products, optimization of several bio and pharmaceutical operations. Hout has consulted in many chemical engineering-affiliated industries.
