Despite the rise in competition, over the weekend Kenya Ports Authority opened the first part of a new container terminal at the Port of Mombasa.
As part of the country’s ‘Vision 2030’ program, the terminal is expected to boost the volume of cargo coming into East Africa’s largest port …read moreContinue reading →
Most adults have experienced the disappointment of cracking open an ice cold beer and taking a big swig only to discover that the supposedly refreshing beverage is actually stale. This age old dilemma may quickly become a thing of the past, thanks to new technology from Bruker Corporation and the taste experts at FlavorActiV.
For millennia, beer was brewed by craftsmen and women who relied on their own palettes and experience to create a tasty drink. In recent years, however, large scale brewing operations have increasingly brought in “sensory panels” of tasting experts with highly trained and refined senses of smell …read moreContinue reading →
Figure 1- The most famous bridge collapse ever. The Tacoma Narrows Bridge, nicknamed “Galloping Gertie” because of its movement, fell apart because engineers missed the worst-case loading. (Image courtesy of the Washington State Historical Society.)

In a previous post, we introduced model-based design (MBD) for providing clear, repeatable and unambiguous communication to all stakeholders.However, the procedural capabilities of MBD as shown below need to be integrated with model-based enterprise (MBE) processes to generate the desired results. With the emergence of the “digital thread” concept, the process of communication becomes ever more critical.
The illustration shows the four elements of Model-Based Definition as a minim… …read moreContinue reading →
