 See In re Burhans, 154 F.2d 690, 692 (CCPA 1946) (“There is no merit in the point here in the absence of any proof in the record that the order of performing the steps produces any new and unexpected results.”); In re Gibson, 39 F.2d 975, 976 (CCPA 1930) (selection of any order of mixing ingredients is prima facie obvious.). However, Gibson and Burhans are applicable to situations where one of ordinary skill in the art would have reasonably expected from the steps described in the applied prior art that changing the order of steps would produce substantially the same result.

It has also been established that a prima facie case of obviousness may be established if the particular order of steps does not produce “results differing in any way from those which would be brought about if another order of steps were followed.” In re Hampel, 162 F.2d 483, 485–486 (CCPA 1947); see also In re Burhans, 154 F.2d 690, 692 (CCPA 1946) (selection of any order of performing process steps is prima facie obvious in the absence of new or unexpected results).

See In re Hampel, 162 F.2d 483, 485 (CCPA 1947) (upholding affirmance of obviousness rejection because “[t]here is nothing in the instant record which indicates that the particular order of steps

See also In re Burhans, 154 F.2d 690, 692 (CCPA 1946) (affirming obviousness rejection “in the absence of any proof in the record that the order of performing the steps produces any new and unexpected results”).
