  2. Algorithms for Health Care Quality Management and Outcomes Assessment

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    American health care is in the midst of momentous change. Quality improvement principles are being used increasingly to enhance productivity and efficiency of health care delivery and to help contain costs. In producing patient outcomes and resource utilization measures, it is vital to control appropriately for case mix (i.e., differences in patients due, e.g., to illness severity) in the predicti ...

  3. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

    SBC: Caregiver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  4. Machine Tool Operational Visualizer

    SBC: CNC Connection Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CNC machine tools continue to be a critical part of manufacturing; yet, a majority of the users still do not have a comprehension of how the systems function internal to the control system. With the current capability and cost benefits of personal computers and multimedia tools, the opportunity to create an educational tool to display the inner workings of the CNC system is feasible. This proposal ...

  5. Diamond Indenter Finishing Machine

    SBC: Dia-Tool Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Dia-Tool proposes herein a new manufacturing machine that will combine the processing steps of shaping the indenter and the measurement of the resulting cone into a single automated Diamond Indenter Finishing Machine. The images of the edges of the indenter cone are digitized through an imaging array and directly stored in computer memory. The indenter cone images are then transformed by image ana ...

  6. Use of Very High Frequency Plasmas to Prepare a-SiGe Alloy Photovoltaic

    SBC: ENERGY CONVERSION DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The program objective is to investigate the feasibility of using a very high frequency (VHF) [70 MHz] plasma technique to produce high efficiency a-SiGe:H solar cells at relatively high deposition rates. Using the VHF technique, high quality a-SiGe:H material is expected due to enhanced low energy ion bombardment of the growing film surface which has been found to be beneficial to the growth of th ...

  7. Characterization of Consolidation of Non-Spherical Powders

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    We propose to characterize the early stage of consolidation of non-spherical powders to further the development of process models to enable simulation of powder metallurgy manufacturing for the consumer market, especially the automotive industry. Typically, spherical powders with a narrow size distribution are used for aerospace applications, while low-cost powders with irregular shapes and a wide ...

  8. Manufacturing Framework Integration of CMMs Via Emerging Standard for

    SBC: Object Workshops, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    New work is in progress on a CORBA interface standard for online interactive communication with DMIS-based Coordinate Measurement Machines (CMMs). This work is being pursued for submission to CAM-I via a recently organized object technology working committee of the North American DMIS Users Group. We will explore how to build upon this work for integration with existing manufacturing frameworks, e ...
