Abstract

Nanotechnology is a generic term referring diverse research contexts, technologies and application domains. We present two case studies illustrating the diversity of research as well as the technological issues associated with scaling pilot/lab based operations to industrial/commercial levels. We demonstrate the utility of lean principles such as the Six-Sigma methodology in addressing technological issues pertaining to diverse Nanotechnology related contexts by discussing the applicability of lean principles to the two cases discussed.
