Combating Driver Shortage Through Packaging

If you pay attention to transportation and long haul trucking rates, you know that the current driver shortage is a real problem and is causing increased rates and reduced load acceptance ratios.  For more details on the driver shortage and how it effects transportation costs, check out this article by Michael Kilgore. The most widely accepted solution to the driver shortage is to increase compensation for over the road truck drivers so that the profession remains competitive against other appealing…

How Innovative Product Packaging Solutions Can Save Money

By Rob Kaszubowski, Packaging Engineering Manager Who knew you could actually damage a product while placing it into its protective packaging? But that’s the exact problem Chainalytics packaging engineers recently tackled for a construction materials client. The company’s heavy vinyl lined products were being scuffed and scratched when slid into their secondary packaging for shipment—creating significant costs from damage returns, warranty repairs, and service calls.  But abrasion during loading wasn’t the only problem: Products were often damaged during unloading from…

Audio in the Browser: Horrors and Joys – Learning

At NPR, we create some of the finest audio storytelling in the world every day. When our radio reporters go into the field to gather stories, they often have a team of audio producers gathering interview clips and natural, found sounds of the highest quality. On the web, audio has never enjoyed the wide browser support and investment that other forms of media, such as images and videos, have received. This means working with audio as a web developer can be…

OneEleven – Post Tensioned Transfer Deck

  The high-rise building located at 111 W. Wacker Drive in downtown Chicago was formerly known as the ‘Waterview.’  The structure was originally designed as an 89-story luxury hotel located along the Chicago River.  The construction of the conventionally-reinforced building progressed until the 27th floor when the 2007 economic recession hit the U.S.  Ultimately, the original project was shelved due to financing issues.  The unfinished building became a visible eye-sore in the heart of Chicago for several years.  Fortunately, a…

Code Reviews: Follow the Data

After years of reviewing other people’s code, I’d like to share a couple practices that improve the effectiveness of code reviews. Why Review Code? First, why review code at all? There are a few reasons: Catching bugs Enforce stylistic consistency with the rest of the code Finding opportunities to share code across systems Helping new engineers spin up with the team and project Helping API authors see actual problems that API consumers face Maintain the health of the system overall…

The Case of the Trailing Space

Solve the case of the trailing space with IMVU’s Senior Engineer, Michael Slezak. In this post, I wanted to discuss a problem we ran into recently dealing with REST authentication in our IMVU client application which ultimately boiled down to small discrepancies between JSON encoders. In this case, I’m going to focus on Python’s JSON library and javascript’s JSON encoder. Before I dive into the problem, I want to provide a quick background on the client application architecture. Client Architecture The…

ChBE UGrads @ GaTech: Research position: Kawajiri group

The Kawajiri research group is looking for an undergraduate researcher who is interested in developing an hydrogen energy production process over multiple semesters. We are working with the Atomistic Simulations and Energy Laboratory in Mechanical Engineering for thermogravimetric testing. The goal of this testing will be to identify high preforming oxygen storage materials (OSM) for hydrogen production. Currently this lab is leading an ARPA-E in the Department of Energy focused on the construction of a concentrated solar powered reactor. This…
