BACKGROUND: The electrophysiologic mechanisms of the persistence of atrial fibrillation (AF) after its initiation are not well understood. Therefore, the electrophysiologic characteristics of the right atrium were evaluated in an acute, pacing-induced model of AF in the pig in order to identify parameters associated with persistence of AF. METHODS AND(More)
Costs involved in implementing manufacturing flexibility to meet customer demand are more important in the SMEs, especially those that are labor intensive for example metalcasting companies located in a high cost country like Norway. Changeover is an important issue in foundries, and setup time of the dies is one of the vital parameters in the manufacturing(More)
Flexibility can be defined as the ability to respond efficiently to the changing demands of the customer and is different in SMEs (Small-to-Medium manufacturing Enterprises) than the traditional OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers). Costs involved in implementing manufacturing flexibility to meet customer demand are more important in the SMEs, especially(More)
Manufacturing flexibility is an important instrument to ensure the success of manufacturing systems in the modern day competitive and uncertain environment. The major hindrance in integrating flexibility into decision making process is that it is difficult to measure and be compared to future indefinable manufacturing scenarios. This paper presents a(More)
