Abstract

Switching to the MasterCam CNC programming system has allowed Ford Motor Company research staff to produce a wide variety of prototype parts with complex contours on CNC machine tools rather than building patterns by hand and casting the parts. The advantages have been impressive. (1) The need to build patterns by hand has been eliminated, thus reducing the cost of the average prototype part by 75 per cent. (2) Lead time has been reduced from an average of three weeks for pattern making, mould making and casting to a typical 48 hours for programming and CNC machining; and (3) prototype quality has been greatly improved because the machined parts possess mathematically sound contours rather than hand filed approximations.

Abstract

The silhouette of the little fellow with baggy trousers, decrepit oversize shoes, undersize derby, frayed short cutaway, sporting a bamboo cane and jet black mustache is recognized worldwide. Charlie Chaplin's slight 5′ 4″ stature complemented that costume, his symbol for a lifetime. Hunched shoulders, sorrowful face, and frightened air made Charlie look all the more vulnerable. As early as 1916, the reputable English magazine Tatler commented, “The lineaments of Mr. Chaplin are known to the uttermost ends of the earth and his face may be described as one upon which the sun never sets.”

Abstract

Investigates the differences in protocols between arbitral tribunals and courts, with particular emphasis on US, Greek and English law. Gives examples of each country and its way of using the law in specific circumstances, and shows the variations therein. Sums up that arbitration is much the better way to gok as it avoids delays and expenses, plus the vexation/frustration of normal litigation. Concludes that the US and Greek constitutions and common law tradition in England appear to allow involved parties to choose their own judge, who can thus be an arbitrator. Discusses e‐commerce and speculates on this for the future.
