CIM Handbook

CIM Handbook: The Opportunities for Rationalisation Opened Up by the Acquisition and Integration of Computer Automation aims to help everyone responsible for structuring computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) concepts and for procuring and selecting CIM components, to find the solutions which meet their requirements in an optimal way, as well as having scope for future development. The significance of the most important individual CIM packages, their function, the increase in efficiency to be obtained by their implementation and the prerequisites for their integration in a total CIM concept will all be clearly set out in this book. The book begins with a discussion of CIM and the increasing competition faced by companies in both domestic and international markets. This is followed by separate chapters on the most important CIM packages; the basic prerequisites of CIM, namely local networks and databases; the implementation of CIM projects; and CIM concepts for the middle-order companies. The final chapter describes the successful implementation of an automated assembly provisioning system in the car industry.

AlveoConsistograph Handbook

The AlveoConsistograph helps you to classify, control, and select wheat and flour and to optimize their blending for specific rheological properties. It measures the effects of improvers, ingredients, and other additives, resulting in better control of dough on the production line and more consistent end-product quality. The AlveoConsistograph Handbook, Second Edition provides an understanding of the technical data generated by the instrument and gives timely application examples. It explains the workings of the Chopin Consistograph and provides deep insight into its coupling with the Chopin Alveograph. As the first revision of this resource in 20 years, this new edition explains major modifications and improvements of the alveograph through new and completely revised chapters. A new chapter on the Consistograph, the component used to determine the water absorption capacity of flour, includes test procedures, applications, differences from other devices, maintenance, and troubleshooting. Another new chapter discusses the debate surrounding the testing of samples using either constant water content or constant consistency methods. This chapter gives useful insight into the adapted hydrated alveograph protocol and its benefits for users of flour that will be part of formulations when gluten quality and performance is crucial. It covers the controversial subject in depth, along with the technical basis for the development of the debate, and compares the uses of both methods on the same wheat. In addition to wheat flour, the book provides guidance for using the alveograph on additional products, such as durum wheat semolina and durum pasta. All the chapters have been rewritten to include the latest practices and will help users gain a better understanding of how this important technology is used in today's food labs. This large-format, easy-to-read handbook includes two helpful appendixes: The first lists the main parts of the alveograph, and the second lists selected references concerning the alveograph. The AlveoConsistograph Handbook will provide users all along the cereal chain with up-to-date information that helps them to get the most out of their daily use of this important technology. The book will be especially useful for food scientists in the baking industry, quality control laboratories, suppliers of enzymes and additives, breeders, grain scientists involved with grain storage, and grain exporters Topics covered Include: Description of different types of alveographs Theory of the alveograph Description of the alveograph procedure Modification of the alveograph procedure Interpretation of alveograph results Factors influencing the alveograph Alveograph calibration Description of the consistograph Adapted hydration method for the alveograph Troubleshooting
