Flow management system for maximising business revenue and profitability

Most for-profit organisations must constantly improve their business strategies and approaches to remain competitive. Many of them choose to embark on Lean or Six Sigma journeys with the intention of maximising productivity and increasing sales. Despite a significant progress in the development of the Big 3 Improvement Methodologies (Lean, Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints – TOC), many manufacturers are still involved in ineffective operations, resulting in longer-than-desired lead times

Investigations on the Leakage Effect in Capacitive Sensing

In the measurement of mutual capacitance between electrodes both the coupling and the leakage effect contribute to the measurement result whereas the leakage mode is dominant in the self capacitance mode. While the coupling effect is mainly defined by the geometry and material distribution close to the electrodes, the root cause or modulation of the leakage effect may be far away from the electrode. It is shown that utilizing both effects may lead to an improvement of an ECT-like scenario
