Oil is one of the most valuable natural resources in the world. Any technology that could possibly be used to conserve oil is worth studying. Biomass waste to olefin (WTO) technology replaces the use of oil as a feedstock. WTO technology is actually a combination of two different processes: the waste to methanol (WTM) process and the methanol to olefins (MTO) process. However, WTO technology is still not commercially applied. Despite the environmentally beneficial advantages of biomass waste to olefins technology, the economic advantages or disadvantages still need to be explored further. This thesis tries to determine under what operating conditions (production volumes, feedstock prices, etc.) make the biomass waste to olefins technology most competitive. The WTM process is the economical limiting factor in the WTO technology. However, for relatively significant production volumes, the WTO technology is still competitive with a slight decrease in biomass feedstock price.; by Nicholas Chiang.; Thesis (M. Eng.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering, September 2005.; Includes bibliographical references (leaves 39-40).

There are various kinds of clinical documents used in a hospital or clinic setting. With the emergence of Electronic Medical Records, efforts are being made to computerize these documents in a structured fashion in order to enable decision support. With structured data entry, because each fact about the patient is stored discretely and can be retrieved separately, information can be organized and presented in different ways, depending on the needs of the user. A typical structured clinical document contains a range of findings recorded by a physician, nurse or other care. These findings can be thought of as discrete pieces of information, called observations. These observations can be grouped together to form observation sets that can be placed under relevant headers within the document. When building information systems that support structured clinical documentation, these observations and sets are created and stored in catalogs. My thesis addresses the issue of building an ontology model for clinical documentation that supports the creation and management of an observations catalog, observation sets catalog and a clinical document catalog. The ontology can be used as an organizational tool for efficient maintenance of these catalogs. By tagging observations and observation sets with relevant attributes...

This research investigated the causal factors and processes of international development and diffusion of wind energy technology by examining private sector cross-border technology transfer from Denmark and Germany to India between 1990 and 2005. The motivation stemmed from the lack of active private sector participation in transfer of climate change mitigation technologies. Special attentions were paid to the role and effects of: government policy and institutional settings; co-evolution of policy, market, industry, and technology; and industrial competitiveness management. The research found that the centrality of government policy, in particular market value creation/rewarding policy, in successful wind energy technology development and diffusion at the technology frontier of Denmark and Germany. Sources of technological change were complex, but it was the policy-induced substantial market size and performance-oriented demand characteristics that determined the speed and direction of technology development and diffusion. Yet, the change was only materialized by the successful establishment of co-evolving mechanism of policy, market, industry, and technology; again, policy was central in the creation and timely adjustment of such virtuous cycle.; (cont.) The research also found strong connections between technological characteristics/specificity and industrial competitiveness management...

In embryonic stem (ES) cell tumors, the hypoxia-inducible transcription factor, HIF- 1[alpha], has been shown to be a tumor suppressor, and HIF-1[alpha]-expressing cells have been shown to localize preferentially in vivo to regions near tumor vasculature. These differences were proposed to be due to increased hypoxia-induced apoptosis and growth arrest of HIF-1[alpha]-expressing ES cells. This thesis presents a careful investigation into the localization of ES cells in vitro and in vivo with respect to hypoxia. A sandwich culture system was utilized in which controlled gradients of oxygen and nutrients are developed in the vicinity of the tumor cells. A diffusion-consumption model was utilized to predict the oxygen and glucose concentration profiles within the system. Oxygen and glucose consumption rates were measured and used as inputs into the model, and the concentration profiles were found to depend on a single experimental parameter, the cell density within the system. The optimum cell density was found in which stable, measurable oxygen gradients develop over 2-3 mm. The model demonstrated excellent agreement between the predicted oxygen concentration profiles and experimentally determined oxygen gradients. In vitro, there was no difference in localization with respect to hypoxia between tumor cells expressing or lacking HIF-1[alpha].; (cont.) In addition...

The goal of this study is to explore the economic conditions that favor the joint development of therapeutics and companion diagnostics. I hypothesize that predictive biomarkers can generate economic value in drug development by increasing success rates. I construct an economic model of the development of a hypothetical new therapy, and devote particular attention to parameters regarding safety, efficacy, cost, and market size, within a decision-theoretic framework. The results include a characterization of the dynamic net present value trade-offs between stratum size and biomarker success, as well as the identification of two complementary concepts of stratified medicine, namely, disease reclassification and value-based reimbursement. I also identify a strong potential incentive mechanism in the hands of public policy makers that could facilitate a resolution of the tension between patient interests and the interests of pharmaceutical sponsors. The conclusion is that a biomarker can compensate for smaller stratum by increasing success probabilities. However, the effects of longer development time due to biomarker inclusion counter the effects of improved success probabilities. Longer exclusivity periods for stratified medicine may be required in order to resolve the tension between patient interests and the interests of pharmaceutical sponsors.; by Amir Goren.; Thesis (S.M.)--Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology...

Companies must receive marketing authorization by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before they can begin commercial distribution of a new type of medical device in the United States. The premarket approval application (PMA) is the process by which this occurs. Companies submit a PMA after they have completed laboratory test, animal studies and human clinical trials to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the device for a specific condition, or therapeutic indication. Despite legislation in the early part of this decade to reduce the timeframe for FDA review of PMAs, these timeframes continue to vary dramatically and unpredictably from months to many years. The focus of this thesis is to examine factors which influence this timeframe. Hypotheses about factors that impact PMA review timeframes were developed by analyzing the review process and through interviews with industry representatives and FDA officials. The following factors were evaluated: year of submission to FDA, size of firm seeking approval, presence of prior approved PMAs by firm seeking approval, product category, first-of-a-kind device, number of amendments, expedited review status, advisory panel review, unanimous advisory panel vote, and confirmation of primary efficacy endpoints in pivotal clinical trials. The year of submission was considered a control variable. The other factors fall into one of three categories: applicant characteristics...

Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC), an advanced coal-based power generation technology, may be an important technology to help India meet its future power needs. It has the potential to provide higher generating efficiency, can be adapted to efficiently burn India's high-ash coal, and has the potential to do so with greatly reduced emissions and offers the longer term potential to assist India to manage its C02 emissions. Efficient gasification technology also offers India the potential to produce a variety of fuels, particularly transportation fuels, and chemicals. These potential benefits would be useful in a country that has coal shortages, runs inefficient power plants, and imports the majority of its transportation fuels. Driven by these potential benefits the Central Government-owned power generating equipment manufacturing company (BHEL) is developing a fluid-bed gasifier designed for Indian coals, but has not yet demonstrated it at a size larger than 6 MW. Outside of BHEL, there are many factors holding this technology back. First, the technology is projected to be more expensive than pulverized coal (PC) power generation. In the Indian environment, the capital costs are estimated to be 1.5 times higher, and the levelized cost of electricity is estimated to be 33 % higher than for PC power generation.; (cont.)

In our first paper we proposed a dynamic theory relating alliances and acquisitions to the evolution of a technology and the market it serves. Industry structure and critical success factors change as the underlying technology evolves from phase to phase, competitive pressures exerted on a firm vary, and companies respond by adopting changing approaches to inter- firm collaboration. During the fluid phase new technology companies often form marketing alliances with established technology firms and pursue an aggressive licensing strategy to gain market recognition. The proliferation of technology startups provides an opportunity for established technology companies to obtain new technologies or enter niche markets through acquisitions or minority equity investments. Anticipating the emergence of a dominant design, companies can form standards alliances to promote their own proprietary technologies. During the transitional phase, companies with dominant designs gain recognition from the stock market, and soaring stock prices make it possible for them to acquire some of their competitors. During the mature phase, technology is well defined and competition becomes intense. Companies can form technology alliances to cut R&D costs. If a particular technology cannot be developed in-house...

Studies of computers and education have failed to account for the relevance and importance of tacit assumptions and unquestioned expectations that underlie educational technology practices. A major premise of this dissertation is that it is these taken-for-granted interpretations of technology that most significantly influence how technology is used in the sphere of education. It is thus analytically useful to examine technology use in education by investigating the assumptions on which currently pervasive educational technology practices are built. I employ the concept of "mental models" to study current educational technology practices. An examination of the literature revealed key elements of the prevailing mental model of technology in education, which I call the mental model of computers as information technology and multimedia machines. In this mental model, computer technology is viewed as a means to provide students and teachers with Internet connectivity and access to extensive, up-to-date information. The computer's multimedia authoring capacity can then be utilized to synthesize the wealth of information culled from Internet sources into presentations with integrated text, graphics, sound, and video. I investigated how this mental model organizes thinking about technology use and education within a large-scale initiative to implement one-to-one computing in public schools...

I expand Christensen's concept and classify two disruptive technologies, company disruptive technology and product disruptive technology. The company disruptive technology is Christensen's definition itself. The product disruptive technology is the disruptive one outside his definition, for example the digital still camera (DSC). I will discuss about some cases, such as a case of high-end disruption, in this expanded definition. Company disruption follows product disruption. Targeting "company" is useful for making strategies, but it is not enough to target only "company" disruptive innovation because the product disruption sometimes badly damages or kills companies. Complementors, such as other products, law, environment etc, are also very important when we consider the disruptive technology, because they change the value criteria of the product performance. It is very important for us to take advantage of complementors in order to grow the disruptive technology. Disruption is a process and it does not always disrupt everything. The disruption is limited in the case of value-change disruption and another disruption is usually required to disrupt a product which falls outside the immediate influence of the first disruption. The disruptions must be happen one after another to disrupt all in the case of the value-change disruption. Circumstances also limit the impact of product disruption. Therefore...

The Role and Contribution of the Chief Technology Officer The role of the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) came about because of new organisational demands on technology leaders in the 1980s. The initial research objective of this dissertation was to provide a clear scope of activities (a remit) for the CTO role. However, the analysis did not support a generic description for the role. Therefore, the approach taken explores CTO perspectives on technology management priorities when the technology context changes. There is limited literature on the role and contribution of the CTO per se. The resulting gap in the knowledge about the role is amplified by a wide variety of research methods and academic perspectives. From a theoretical point of view, the existing research tends to focus in isolation on the work being done, the working context or the worker (i.e. the CTO). There are studies that consider how the working context is changing, and studies that consider the work of the CTO, for example, the technology management priorities. There are still other studies that consider the attributes of the CTO. In this dissertation, these three perspectives - the working context, the work and the worker - are investigated in an integrated way using a data collection technique called ?personal role mapping? that is based on cognitive mapping. The ?personal role mapping? approach has been developed as part of this work. The evidence collected and analysed shows that the role of the CTO is highly idiosyncratic. This is because the CTO role changes as the organisation adapts in order to compete. Also...

This thesis describes the conditions that influence technology acquisition when an industry partner is involved. The objective of this thesis is to contribute to the knowledge regarding the conditions that affect effective acquisition of technology by collaboration by identifying and describing the relationship between the following variables: key activities and influential factors. The results are drawn from the analysis of eleven case studies involving experiences from different industries including chemicals, oil and gas and biofuels. The research adopts the perspective of an acquiring firm, which is interested in incorporating a new technology into its operations in order to meet a particular business need. Such a business need can be, for example, entering into a new market, meeting key customer requirements or improving operational efficiency. The results indicate that technology acquisition involving an industry partner can be described as a six-stage process where the acquiring firm may or may not get involved in the development of the technology concept. During the process a number of factors can influence the acquisition and implementation of the technology in the acquiring firm?s operations. These factors can be divided into six categories: business alignment...
