Consumer-driven products have kept the food industry at the forefront of technological innovations. For example, the redefinition of the once accepted compromise between convenience and quality is just one of the current issues driving the development of new products. An overview of a range of solutions for these challenges, Innovation in Food Engineering: New Techniques and Products addresses not only new or alternative technologies but also new products, materials, and additives that have emerged as a response to current and emerging issues faced by the food industry. This book provides a comprehensive overview of modern processing technologies and their use to develop new or improved food products and ingredients that meet consumers increased demands for quality and safety. Each chapter in the Innovative Techniques section begins with a critical review of the fundamentals of the new or modified technique, its advantages, and relevant results. They include a description of the actual industrial scenario where the technique can be applied, emphasizing benefits and economical relevance of this sector. The chapters in the New Materials, Products, and Additives section identify the potential of the new or modified product, discuss its production route, and compare it with traditional alternatives. While there are many books available on both topics, this is one of the first to cover processing technologies and their use to produce new and improved food products. Written by internationally recognized experts and pioneers and comprehensive in scope, the text highlights promising techniques and remaining challenges. In the constantly changing global marketplace, keeping up with new developments is important—keeping ahead of them is essential. This book keeps you up to date on the latest technology and paves the way for future developments.

Engineers and scientists often need to sell an innovative idea for a new product to top management. Those who occupy product planning positions also need to be constantly scanning ideas for improving value. The engineer as product planner must learn to think like its major competitor using customer value as a guide. This book provides essential support for engineers and scientists who are required to make realistic business cases for new product concepts.

Whilst previous methods for business process reengineering have focused on time and cost reduction policies to preserve competitive services and products, Re-engineering of Products and Processes: How to Achieve Global Success in the Changing Marketplace presents a new approach which aims to include aspects that impact the customer perceived value. This method supports business reengineering initiatives by identifying process bottlenecks as well as new products and services viable to overcome market competition. This original approach is described step-by-step, explaining the theory through examples of performable tasks and the selection of relevant tools according to the nature of the problem. Supported by illustrations, tables and diagrams, Re-engineering of Products and Processes: How to Achieve Global Success in the Changing Marketplace clearly explains a method which is then applied to several case studies across different industrial sectors. Re-engineering of Products and Processes: How to Achieve Global Success in the Changing Marketplace provides a scientific reference for researchers and PhD students working in several fields of the Industrial Engineering: mechanical, electric, electronic sectors and, more in general, all the industrial areas where there are needs to design innovative products. The step-by-step description on how to employ the proposed method and its application to practical examples, make the book a key resource for industry consultants and managers who look to increase the value of their products and services for new and existing customers.

Innovation in product design starts with materials. Developing successful commercial products demands a sound understanding of the materials that go into those products—their uses, their costs, their lifetime performance. However, the valuable knowledge of materials engineers is often not fully leveraged in the creative phase of the product design cycle. Gessinger seeks to bridge this gap that exists in many companies. Written from the bottom-up perspective of the engineer or scientist on a product design team, Materials and Innovative Product Design introduces business, economics and strategic product development to the materials specialist and demystifies materials selection for other members of the design team and manufacturing management. Using case studies from innovative organizations, such as ABB, and successful start-ups, such as NDC, Day4Energy, and Metoxit, Gessinger illustrates how the integration of different engineering and business disciplines can power innovation in the design process. By addressing the real world needs of innovators, this book allows the reader to unlock the potential of the new material types that have been changing the face of product design and deploy an integrated business approach to materials selection and the design process. Allows engineers to develop a fuller understanding of economics and business objectives in order to contribute more effectively to innovative product design Introduces the business opportunities and practical challenges of deploying new material types to design and manufacturing management Illustrates how to harness the power of R&D within the design cycle through case studies of innovative and successful organizations that have brought new materials technologies to known markets and known materials to new markets

Innovating in Product/Process Development demonstrates how to achieve true innovation in product development, and how to launch a new product in the quickest and cheapest way. The new approach to product development proposed in this book is based on the most recent research in the field. It suggests the integration of several tools that are currently only used independently, with the aim of stimulating the creation of innovative ideas in general, and specifically in the areas of product/process improvements and problem solving. Innovating in Product/Process Development explores different aspects of innovation processes in twenty-first century industry from a global economic perspective. It presents in detail several approaches to support these processes, from ICT-based systems to collaborative working environments, all of which will be of interest to MBA or advanced students; researchers; and design teams charged with the creation of new product lines.
