    Privately financed projects have been with us since Victorian times, when investors rushed to put their money into railways and made (or lost) fortunes. More recently, projects such as the Channel Tunnel, the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge at Dartford and the Second Severn Crossing have gone forward with private finance. Here the author looks at the prospects for involving private sector companies in p... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):88 - 89
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (264 KB)

    The author discusses the reasons for the Drax coal fired power station flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) retrofit. It's National Power's biggest project, will take eight years to finish, and cost £684 million. At the end of 1993, the first phase of the project was completed with the handover by Babcock Energy, the project's principal contractor, of the first two SO2 absorber vessels... View full abstract»

  • Maintaining a standard

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):S3 - S5
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB)

    Differing interpretations of written standards are often blamed for the appearance of noncompatible equipment. A simple-to-use software package should help suppliers in one field of electronics avoid this problem. The design of a second National Motorway Communications System (NMCSZ) included high-level data link control (HDLC) protocols for the control of motorway signals. These protocols seemed ...

    Intelligent networks (INs) are changing the culture and structure of the telecoms industry, and will change the way that customers think about telephone services. Yet they are doing all this largely unnoticed. The changes are gradual, the name 'intelligent network' means different things to different people, and the only glamorous technologies involved are something of a distraction. INs are a nat...

  • Multimedia for engineers

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):S19 - S21
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB)

    The challenges that currently face higher education in the UK and beyond are many and varied. Underpinning many of these is the daunting task of producing an increasingly skilled workforce, and doing so from a diminishing resource base. New ideas are required-new approaches, new methods and new techniques. Multimedia developments have a vital role to play. If properly designed they provide an idea... View full abstract»

  • Managing product design: The next industrial revolution

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):79 - 82
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (388 KB)

    Few subjects in engineering are as important and as neglected as design. The author appeals for a revolution in managing product design. Although the supporting evidence is not as well researched as one would like, there seems little doubt that product design and its management are often grey areas in industry where good management practice is under-used. Conversely, the benefits on offer from ado... View full abstract»

    The concept of industrial policy, as laid down in the Maastrict Treaty, is to provide the necessary framework to keep the Community's industry competitive. A lot of questions arise out of this, most particularly: What can the European Commission do to help high-tech industries? The author explains the philosophy of the European Commission's support for high-tech industries (IT and electronics indu... View full abstract»
