Ries and others created an annual technology conference called Startup Lessons Learned which has subsequently changed its name to the Lean Startup Conference.  Lean startup meetups in cities around the world have garnered 20,000 regular participants.  The first lean startup meetup named Lean Startup Circle was created by Rich Collins on June 26, 2009  hosting speaking events, workshops, and roundtable discussions. As of 2012, there are lean startup meetups in over 100 cities and 17 countries as well as an online discussion forum with over 5500 members.  Third-party organizers have led lean startup meetups in San Francisco , Chicago , Boston , Austin , Beijing , Dublin , and Rio de Janeiro , among others—many of which are personally attended by Ries—with the Chicago and New York City Lean Startup Meetups attracting over 4,000 members each.  The Lean Startup Machine created a new spin on the lean startup meetups by having attendees start a new company in three days.  As of 2012, the Lean Startup Machine claimed to have created over 600 new startups this way. 
I am working on implementing OEE in one of our machines that makes centertubes for automotive oil filters. The steel is rolled and each part number has specific diameter and length. However, the run-rates vary for each part numbers. I am somewhat able to calculate Takt time for each part number based on the standard run-rate. However, the problem for me is to determine Ideal Cycle Time. The machine can run as fast as 65 PPM for one part number while it runs as slow as 13 PPM for some other part number. In this case, what would be the optimal way to calculate Ideal Cycle Time for each part numbers? As you know, Ideal Cycle time is required to calculate Performance Metric of OEE.
In 2002, a hybrid open solar Brayton cycle was operated for the first time consistently and effectively with relevant papers published, in the frame of the EU SOLGATE program.  The air was heated from 570 to over 1000°K into the combustor chamber. Further hybridization was achieved during the EU Solhyco project running a hybridized Brayton cycle with solar energy and biodiesel only.  This technology was scaled up to MW within the project Solugas located near Seville, where it is currently demonstrated at precommercial scale.
