As the world struggles to reduce carbon emissions, air traffic is increasing by 5% each year. Ultimately, fully electric civil aircraft are planned, but hybrid-electric propulsion is expected to enter service first. Hybrid-electric distributed propulsion could give massive reductions in fuel consumption and emissions, but would require greatly improved electric motors with much higher power-to-weight ratio and efficiency. 
The “R” word – recession – is being uttered a lot lately, as the stock market swooned after an “inverted yield curve” in the bond market. That’s considered an indicator that a recession is on the way. The U.S. government is paying more to buyers of its 2-year-bond than its 10-year notes. Essentially, it’s a sign of concern about the economy’s short-term prospects.

Gain a solid and fundamental understanding of gear geometry, types and arrangements, and design principles. Starting with the basic definitions of gears, conjugate motion, and the Laws of Gearing, learn the tools needed to understand the inter-relation and coordinated motion operating within gear pairs and multi-gear trains. Basic gear system design process and gear measurement and inspection techniques will also be explained. In addition, the fundamentals of understanding the step-wise process of working through the iterative design process required to generate a gear pair will be reviewed. Learn the steps and issues involved in design refinement and some manufacturing considerations. An explanation of basic gear measurement techniques, how measurement equipment and test machines implement these techniques, and how to interpret the results from these basic measurements will also be covered.

An investigation of the changes in employment and establishments in 38 manufacturing North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industries from 2002 to 2018 shows some inconvenient truths —that 37 out of the 38 manufacturing industries are declining in terms of both number of plants and employees.
Plant Engineering
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) offers manufacturing organizations almost unimaginable potential to change the way managers and operators do their jobs by connecting production equipment to the cloud. In fact, Accenture has forecast that IIoT could add as much as $14.2 trillion to the global economy by 2030.

Blockchain has the potential to be just as transformative for the manufacturing industry as it could be for financial services. Far from something "coming down the line," its distributed ledger technology already offers companies a genuine way in which to drive connectedness and streamline operations like never before.
