A practical guide to all key the elements of pharmaceuticals and biotech manufacturing and design Engineers working in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries are routinely called upon to handle operational issues outside of their fields of expertise. Traditionally the competencies required to fulfill those tasks were achieved piecemeal, through years of self-teaching and on-the-job experience—until now. Practical Pharmaceutical Engineering provides readers with the technical information and tools needed to deal with most common engineering issues that can arise in the course of day-to-day operations of pharmaceutical/biotech research and manufacturing. Engineers working in pharma/biotech wear many hats. They are involved in the conception, design, construction, and operation of research facilities and manufacturing plants, as well as the scale-up, manufacturing, packaging, and labeling processes. They have to implement FDA regulations, validation assurance, quality control, and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliance measures, and to maintain a high level of personal and environmental safety. This book provides readers from a range of engineering specialties with a detailed blueprint and the technical knowledge needed to tackle those critical responsibilities with confidence. At minimum, after reading this book, readers will have the knowledge needed to constructively participate in contractor/user briefings. Provides pharmaceutical industry professionals with an overview of how all the parts fit together and a level of expertise that can take years of on-the-job experience to acquire Addresses topics not covered in university courses but which are crucial to working effectively in the pharma/biotech industry Fills a gap in the literature, providing important information on pharmaceutical operation issues required for meeting regulatory guidelines, plant support design, and project engineering Covers the basics of HVAC systems, water systems, electric systems, reliability, maintainability, and quality assurance, relevant to pharmaceutical engineering Practical Pharmaceutical Engineering is an indispensable “tool of the trade” for chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, and pharmaceutical engineers employed by pharmaceutical and biotech companies, engineering firms, and consulting firms. It also is a must-read for engineering students, pharmacy students, chemistry students, and others considering a career in pharmaceuticals.

Manufacturing and service industries have significantly improved their levels of productivity, quality, and profitability over the past 30 years, whereas in the construction industry similar levels of improvement have been impossible to achieve. Numerous reports have identified fragmentation of the industry’s management structures and processes as the underlying cause of the waste and inefficiencies that keep costs high and margins low. Integrated Design and Construction is an integrated yet competitive form of procurement, design and project delivery based on the principle of purchasing any other high value warranted manufactured product. Such an approach would make the construction process more like other manufacturing industries, allowing contractors to make similar improvements to those already seen in other manufacturing industries. Designed for use by experienced construction professionals, familiar and proficient with traditional design and construction system best practice, this Code of Practice provides both client and constructor with the necessary information to adopt this approach to create well-designed and well-constructed products, fully meeting client needs.

This paper investigates how institutional and macroeconomic factors influence the profit efficiency frontier of Russian banks. We demonstrate that the macroeconomic environment is crucial for constructing the profit frontier. The cargo transportation index, exchange rate, and intermediation ratio have a positive relationship with this efficiency frontier while the share of loan loss provision in the loan portfolio is negatively associated with it. In addition, we find that such institutional determinants as a bank’s location, branch network diversity, and ownership type matter for constructing this frontier.

A comprehensive history of the evolution of technical analysis from ancient times to the Internet age Whether driven by mass psychology, fear or greed of investors, the forces of supply and demand, or a combination, technical analysis has flourished for thousands of years on the outskirts of the financial establishment. In The Evolution of Technical Analysis: Financial Prediction from Babylonian Tablets to Bloomberg Terminals, MIT's Andrew W. Lo details how the charting of past stock prices for the purpose of identifying trends, patterns, strength, and cycles within market data has allowed traders to make informed investment decisions based in logic, rather than on luck. The book Reveals the origins of technical analysis Compares and contrasts the Eastern practices of China and Japan to Western methods Details the contributions of pioneers such as Charles Dow, Munehisa Homma, Humphrey B. Neill, and William D. Gann The Evolution of Technical Analysis explores the fascinating history of technical analysis, tracing where technical analysts failed, how they succeeded, and what it all means for today's traders and investors.

A practical guide to all key the elements of pharmaceuticals and biotech manufacturing and design Engineers working in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries are routinely called upon to handle operational issues outside of their fields of expertise. Traditionally the competencies required to fulfill those tasks were achieved piecemeal, through years of self-teaching and on-the-job experience—until now. Practical Pharmaceutical Engineering provides readers with the technical information and tools needed to deal with most common engineering issues that can arise in the course of day-to-day operations of pharmaceutical/biotech research and manufacturing. Engineers working in pharma/biotech wear many hats. They are involved in the conception, design, construction, and operation of research facilities and manufacturing plants, as well as the scale-up, manufacturing, packaging, and labeling processes. They have to implement FDA regulations, validation assurance, quality control, and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliance measures, and to maintain a high level of personal and environmental safety. This book provides readers from a range of engineering specialties with a detailed blueprint and the technical knowledge needed to tackle those critical responsibilities with confidence. At minimum, after reading this book, readers will have the knowledge needed to constructively participate in contractor/user briefings. Provides pharmaceutical industry professionals with an overview of how all the parts fit together and a level of expertise that can take years of on-the-job experience to acquire Addresses topics not covered in university courses but which are crucial to working effectively in the pharma/biotech industry Fills a gap in the literature, providing important information on pharmaceutical operation issues required for meeting regulatory guidelines, plant support design, and project engineering Covers the basics of HVAC systems, water systems, electric systems, reliability, maintainability, and quality assurance, relevant to pharmaceutical engineering Practical Pharmaceutical Engineering is an indispensable “tool of the trade” for chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, and pharmaceutical engineers employed by pharmaceutical and biotech companies, engineering firms, and consulting firms. It also is a must-read for engineering students, pharmacy students, chemistry students, and others considering a career in pharmaceuticals.
