Throughput Accounting is a modern management accounting technique that offers an alternative view to the more traditional cost accounting. It allows management to focus efforts to make the best possible use of the limitation. These five steps ensure the organisation has an ongoing improvement that is based on the identified constraints or weak links. Is also known as the rate at which the system generates money, it is measured in monetary terms and naturally linked to profitability. Throughput Accounting is based around achieving the maximum possible net profit in a limited time frame with limiting conditions. The formulas used and and a scenario based example is the best way to illustrate how Throughput Accounting can be used and the principles behind it.

To further the functional annotation of the mammalian genome, the Sanger Mouse Genetics Programme aims to generate and characterise knockout mice in a high-throughput manner. Annually, approximately lines of knockout mice will be characterised using a standardised battery of phenotyping tests covering key disease indications ranging from obesity to sensory acuity. From these findings secondary centres will select putative mutants of interest for more in-depth, confirmatory experiments. Optimising experimental design and data analysis is essential to maximise output using the resources with greatest efficiency, thereby attaining our biological objective of understanding the role of genes in normal development and disease.
High-throughput metaproteomics data analysis with Unipept: A tutorial
Abstract The first step in most geochronological studies is to extract dateable minerals from the host rock, which is time consuming, removes textural context, and increases the chance for sample cross-contamination. These coordinates are subsequently passed on to the laser ablation system for isotopic analysis. The second case study investigates a paragneiss from an ultra-high pressure terrane in the North Qaidam terrane Qinghai, China. Continuous improvements in the miniaturisation, automation and affordability of mass spectrometers have provided geologists with unprecedented access to precise chronological data, and have opened up new research fields such as detrital geochronology. Nowadays, it is common for studies to comprise thousands of U-Pb ages in dozens of samples, something that would have been prohibitively expensive just a decade ago.
Too often manufacturing operations are quick to look at a technological solution or other capital investment to solve a problem, when leaders already have all they need right in front of them. An investment in human capital can make quick gains for less money. Consider the following example. The company manufactures a product that is sticky; it requires a high-velocity, high-volume production through one of 14 different cutting and packing machines. Four teams worked rotating hour shifts on those 14 different machines.
