Wed, 2013-02-27 10:50

McGill University researchers are developing low-cost and high-performance electric engines for the next generation of electric vehicles, in collaboration with industrial partners Linamar, TM4, and Infolytica. They will be able to take advantage of the recent development of batteries with high energy densities to create optimal electric drivetrains for on-road electric cars. The drivetrain is the group of components in a motor vehicle that uses the energy stored in the battery to generate mechanical power and deliver it to the road surface.

Four Decades, Four Continents, Four Copper Operations – a Personal Perspective on Constraints

The last forty years are reviewed using four different copper operations, on four continents, as examples of the changes in thinking approaches the industry has developed. Prioritization of effort and resources is a skill that has developed continuously and necessarily at an ever increasing rate.
