"So many people talk about simulation of the mold cavity and optimizing
the cavity, but the final say over the cavity design lies with the customer, not the mold designer or mold maker.

Even with advanced CAE software, optimizing
gate placement normally takes guesswork and trial and error.
In 1961 Bertsch reported on response surfaces in compounding experiments and Frankel on optimizing
the yield of MBT, the latter has, of course, more to do with chemistry than with rubber.
asset utilization in conjunction with reductions in power and cooling costs is worthless if the resultant configurations under (or over) provision the needs of the business.
"The key is to get a balance of the three, or at least focus on optimizing
two out of three to meet paper quality parameters," he said.
"Intel is delighted that Certeon is optimizing

Over the years, the foundry industry has tried a number of tools to minimize inclusions in castings, including optimizing
runner system design, employing water models to simulate fluid flow and studying real-time X-rays.
Yet a small but growing band of processors are discarding trial-and-error methods in favor of simulation as a shortcut to optimizing
