"In this encyclopedia, three fundamental stages of food production are addressed: 1. The start or initiation of the natural food-growth cycle--the seeds, rootstocks, seeding trees, the mating or artificial insemination of livestock, the stocking of fisheries, among others; 2. The nurture of growing plants and animals through harvest, roundup, and postharvest preparation, from which point 'raw' food materials go either to (a) the fresh market; or (b) processors; 3. The processing of 'raw' food materials into more refined and complex products for the marketplace."--P. v
Standard handbook of industrial automation by Douglas M Considine( Book )

13 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors and editors of this Handbook have attempted to fill a serious gap in the professional literature on industrial automation. Much past attention has been directed to the general concepts and philosophy of automation as a way to convince owners and managers of manufacturing facilities that automation is indeed one of the few avenues available to increase productivity and improve competitive position. Seventy-three contributors share their knowledge in this Handbook. Less attention has been given to the "What" and "How" of automation. To the extent feasible and practical within the confines of the pages allowed, this Handbook concentrates on the implementation of automation. Once the "Go" signal has been given by management, concrete details-not broad definitions and philosophical discussions-are required. To be found in this distinctly different book in the field are detailed parameters for designing and specifying equipment, the options available with an evaluation of their relative advantages and limitations, and insights for engineers and production managers on the operation and capabilities of present-generation automation system components, subsystems, and total systems. In a number of instances, the logical extension of current technology into the future is given. A total of 445 diagrams and photos and 57 tables augments detailed discussions. In addition to its use as a ready reference for technical and management personnel, the book has wide potential for training and group discussions at the college and university level and for special education programs as may be provided by consultants or by "in-house" training personnel
