Apple Wants to Start Producing Cars as Soon as 2020 | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc., which has been working secretly on a car, is pushing its team to begin production of an electric vehicle as early as 2020, people with knowledge of the matter said.

The timeframe -- automakers typically spend five to seven years developing a car -- underscores the project’s aggressive goals and could set the stage for a battle for customers with Tesla Motors Inc. and General Motors Co., both of which are targeting a 2017 release of an electric vehicle that can go more than 200 miles on a single charge and cost less than $40,000...Read More....

Shooting Laser Beams Inside a Water Jet Gives Machining a New Cutting Edge

Shooting Laser Beams Inside a Water Jet Gives Machining a New Cutting Edge | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Leonardo da Vinci always seemed to be hungry for new ideas, but sometimes he may have been just hungry. Some 500 years ago, he designed a roasting jack that powered an automatic rotisserie. It used hot air rising from a fireplace to spin a horizontal vane placed in the chimney above it. The vane was attached to a vertical rod that turned the spit, and, presumably, his dinner.

The jack was one of the world’s first turbines and engineers have been using the same principle inside jet engines and power plants ever since. Since high heat can make turbines more efficient, the hot sections of modern turbines operate at temperatures above 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, much higher than Leonardo’s design and near the melting point of steel...Read More....

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.
