A comprehensive and practical approach to designing for the growing senior market<br> <br> As people live longer, stay healthier, and enjoy more disposable income, their use of hospitality services is increasing dramatically. Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation helps you cater to this expanding market by providing critical information on designing facilities which are sensitive to the needs of the over-65 population. With the important principles explained in this book, designing for the senior consumer can be creative, cost-effective, and benefit all consumers without sacrificing style.<br> <br> This indispensable guide includes: <br> * A Universal Design approach that can be applied to both commercial and residential projects, going beyond compliance with ADA guidelines <br> * A wide range of hospitality design, including restaurants, hotel guest rooms, lobbies, and lounges <br> * Design principles beautifully illustrated with concise, detailed drawings <br> * Extensive coverage of the specific physical needs and psychology of seniors, including physical strength, hearing, sight, color preferences, and other areas <br> * A quick-reference checklist of "senior-friendly" design features<br> <br> <br> When the interior design needs of the over-65 market are met, all potential users gain, regardless of age or ability. This accessible book is an invaluable resource for designers, operators, and other professionals throughout the hospitality industry.<br> <br> With millions of baby boomers rapidly approaching retirement age, the over-65 age group is the fastest-growing segment of the population. As they become healthier, live longer, and have more disposable income, their use of hospitality services, such as hotels and restaurants, will increase dramatically. Whether you are a designer or a hospitality professional, Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation helps you plan for this growing market by providing you with critical information for designing facilities that accommodate the needs of all generations.<br> <br> Clearly written and generously illustrated, Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation shows you how to address the specific physical and psychological needs of seniors, with detailed chapters on mobility, hearing, vision, color preferences, and other important areas. Going beyond ADA guidelines, Alfred Baucom's Universal Design approach enables you to integrate senior-friendly design principles into a wide range of specific environments --from lobbies, common areas, and public restrooms to restaurants, lounges, and hotel guest rooms.<br> <br> In meeting the needs of the over-65 market, Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation ensures that all potential users, regardless of age or ability, will be well accommodated.
A complete blueprint for all types of restaurant development--from concept through construction
This text shows the reader how to plan and develop a restaurant or foodservice space. Topics covered include concept design, equipment identification and procurement, design principles, space allocation, electricity and energy management, environmental concerns, safety and sanitation, and considerations for purchasing small equipment, tableware, and table linens. This book is comprehensive in nature and focuses on the whole facility-with more attention to the equipment-rather than emphasizing either front of the house or back of the house.
Restaurant Management: A Best Practices Approach introduces the reader to the vast menu of opportunities available in the restaurant industry - from creating business plans to guest service, quality management, labor costs and beyond. Written by a diverse collection of restaurant industry and education experts, Restaurant Management: A Best Practices Approach: Includes a section dedicated to career opportunities, job prospects, and the differences between self-ownership and franchised operations. Describes the five types of managerial control and discusses the importance of cost control to a foodservice operation. Explains what a menu should accomplish for a foodservice operation as well as the nine factors involved in menu pricing and the seven quantitative menu pricing methods. Includes learning objectives, key terms, summaries, review questions, and more to facilitate and assess student learning. Describes different types of foodservice operation budgets and offers advantages and disadvantages of each.
Design of Systems on a Chip: Design&Test is the second of two volumes addressing the design challenges associated with new generations of the semiconductor technology. The various chapters are the compilations of tutorials presented at workshops in the recent years by prominent authors from all over the world. Technology, productivity and quality are the main aspects under consideration to establish the major requirements for the design and test of upcoming systems on a chip. In particular this second book include contributions on three different, but complementary axes: core design, computer-aided design tools and test methods. A collection of chapters deal with the heterogeneity aspect of core designs, showing the diversity of parts that may share the same substrate in a state-of-the-art system on a chip. The second part of the book discusses CAD in three different levels of design abstraction, from system level to physical design. The third part deals with test methods. The topic is addressed from different viewpoints: in terms of chip complexity, test is discussed from the core and system prospective; in terms of signal heterogeneity, the digital, mixed-signal and microsystem prospective are considered.
Fault-tolerance in integrated circuits is not an exclusive concern regarding space designers or highly-reliable application engineers. Rather, designers of next generation products must cope with reduced margin noises due to technological advances. The continuous evolution of the fabrication technology process of semiconductor components, in terms of transistor geometry shrinking, power supply, speed, and logic density, has significantly reduced the reliability of very deep submicron integrated circuits, in face of the various internal and external sources of noise. The very popular Field Programmable Gate Arrays, customizable by SRAM cells, are a consequence of the integrated circuit evolution with millions of memory cells to implement the logic, embedded memories, routing, and more recently with embedded microprocessors cores. These re-programmable systems-on-chip platforms must be fault-tolerant to cope with present days requirements. This book discusses fault-tolerance techniques for SRAM-based Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). It starts by showing the model of the problem and the upset effects in the programmable architecture. In the sequence, it shows the main fault tolerance techniques used nowadays to protect integrated circuits against errors. A large set of methods for designing fault tolerance systems in SRAM-based FPGAs is described. Some presented techniques are based on developing a new fault-tolerant architecture with new robustness FPGA elements. Other techniques are based on protecting the high-level hardware description before the synthesis in the FPGA. The reader has the flexibility of choosing the most suitable fault-tolerance technique for its project and to compare a set of fault tolerant techniques for programmable logic applications.
