By David Tolfree

Micro-nanotechnologies (MNT) are already creating a profound effect on our day-by-day lives. New purposes are good underway within the US, Asia, and Europe. despite the fact that, their most likely disruptive nature, in addition to the public’s issues, has produced a couple of demanding situations. Commercializing Micro-Nanotechnology Products presents a picture of the present industry state of affairs and info the necessity for MNT improvement. It outlines the issues dealing with today’s companies and discusses the approaches for commercialization, street mapping, expertise move research, and entrepreneurial improvement.

The ebook starts through detailing the stairs required to show an concept right into a marketable product. The editors provide examples of formerly profitable items and relate to their very own reports in improvement. subsequent, the textual content specializes in the significance of entrepreneurship and the necessary steps to finance and strengthen a business plan. It includes numerous definitions of nanotechnology and the way each one pertains to roadmap and construction concerns. 3 certain case stories from the prime MNT improvement and production businesses describe how each one enterprise began and stepped forward to turn into a marketplace chief. those experiences provide helpful perception into overcoming the demanding situations concerning reaching monetary backing and specifying the appropriate product for improvement.

This reference offers the single insightful appraisal of the present prestige of micro-nanotechnology items. It describes a concise procedure for product commercialization, from industry study to finish product attention. Commercializing Micro-Nanotechnologies offers a transparent process for selecting the fitting product to improvement and overcoming demanding situations within the growing to be worldwide marketplace.

Example text

In 1968, a newly formed firm — Intel Corporation — began to manufacture memory chips (integrated circuits). In 1969, Intel received an order from a Japanese company, Busicom, to make an integrated circuit chip that could be programmed to do many, many different math functions. Ted Hoff realized that it would be more interesting and efficient to do this with a programmable microprocessor. Hoff completed the semiconductor chip in 1971, but Busicom lost interest. Still, the first microprocessor, the Intel 4004, was made available for sale.

At the same company, internal political and organizational issues began to surface. After millions of fuel injection structures had been delivered defect free, one of the most powerful groups responsible for the product delivery process, the Quality Department, began to feel threatened. As it became evident that this group was no longer influential and jobs would be eliminated, roadblocks were put in place attempting to limit the program’s effectiveness. When jobs are threatened, defence mechanisms are often put in place by both engineers and managers.

Evolutionary Technologies Evolutionary technologies might be described as “business as usual” with a continuous flow of technical inventions emerging from R&D based upon the supplier’s core technical competencies and/or from customers’ suggestions or requests. 3,4 Technologies can originate either inside or outside an industry. indb 31 10/23/07 10:22:05 AM 32 Commercializing Micro-Nanotechnology Products or greatly improved products.
