Unintended Consequences: Results from STLE's 2014 Trends in Tribology Research Report
6/16/2014

Thomas T. Astrene, STLE Associate Executive Director

Speaker

In 2014 STLE surveyed nearly 1,000 members to identify emerging trends in tribology research and lubrication engineering. The idea was to focus on the trends that will most impact society's future needs and technical challenges. As part of this methodology, STLE also asked its members to identify the unintended consequences of those trends. The result in an in-depth examination of the issues you need to consider before making critical business decisions. Includes a look at the Three Transcendent Questions you need to ask to evaluate any proposed product, market or initiative. Also includes a brief update on STLE activities and products. Note: This is a non-technical presentation that is more idea than data focused.
