Pushing the Lean + Six Sigma Envelope

Pushing the Lean + Six Sigma Envelope Most success stories about marrying Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma involve manufacturing, not services, claims executive coach Dean Meyer in a CIO article. While both presume routine and predictable workflows, problems routinely surface when the two concepts are applied to functionally diverse tasks and creative problem-solving. Do you agree? What's been your experience in extending these quality programs beyond the factory floor to engineering teams and other technical staff? For more on this topic, the George Group has published a how-to book for service organizations.

R&D Is Future-Critical Key

R&D Is Future-Critical Key Frost & Sullivan reports that significant R&D investments are vital if manufacturers hope to stay afloat in the machine vision and X-ray inspection markets, whose combined revenues topped $6 billion last year. F&S warns that slow adoption of emerging digital technology may hinder future performance. Emerging companies need to adopt new technologies like smart cameras and bolster product differentiation.

Problems Resound via Ultrasound

Problems Resound via Ultrasound Ultrasonic monitoring can prevent mechanical, electrical, and leakage problems from damaging equipment, increasing costs, and affecting product quality, says Reliable Plant. In several ultrasound applications, the latest equipment is more adept at recording sound samples and analyzing test results through data management and spectral analysis software. Potential payoffs? One chemical company saved $1 million from leak detection.

Three-Way NDT Facility

Three-Way NDT Facility Customers of GE Inspection Technologies that need nondestructive testing (NDT) can now tap three techniques under one roof in Lewistown, PA. Complementing ultrasonic and eddy current machines, sophisticated X-ray devices imported from GE's Cincinnati lab include: a 450 kV Isovolt Titan, a 225 kV Titan, a 160 kV microfocus tube, and two 9 in. (3.5 cm) Tri-field image intensifiers.

Smarter Cameras = Better Quality

Smarter Cameras = Better Quality A new compact smart camera targets narrow web-print inspection, such as checking the position and quality of machine-printed text/graphics on discrete parts. Improved 1280x1024 pixel resolution enables the camera to reliably detect smaller defects than earlier models. To maintain inspection speed, the device is powered by DSPs operating at 1 GHz and 8000 MIPS.

X-Rays Speed RoHS "OK"

X-Rays Speed RoHS 'OK' Utilizing X-ray fluorescence, three new handheld analyzers screen components, parts, cables, and printed circuit boards for RoHS compliance. One analyzer uses a laser to pinpoint a 0.12 in. (3 mm) diameter test area on complex components. Another measures multilayer coating thickness and composition of coated/plated PCBs or parts. For general RoHS screening, a third type gives fast pass-fail results.

Software ID's Failure Sources

Software ID's Failure Sources Designed to help OEMs quickly pinpoint the exact source of product failures, upgraded software features a new repair module. It tracks and compares historical information on the repairs made, then recommends which are most effective. The module is targeted especially for electronic manufacturers to reduce warranty costs on mature products and improve a product's performance throughout its lifecycle.

Fixing Underachieving Software

Fixing Underachieving Software Civilization runs on software, says Bjarne Stroustrup, C++ inventor, who argues that much of our software doesn't run very well. In Technology Review, Stroustrup and Charles Simonyi, Microsoft's former chief software architect, and self-proclaimed "first nerd in space," discuss why software code is often too costly, unreliable, and cumbersome. One solution, says Simonyi, is creating generic tools that users can modify.

Vision's Victorious Visionary

Vision's Victorious Visionary	Gerard Medioni, USC's computer science chair, is being honored by the machine vision industry for the decade's most significant article. His algorithms allowed computers to recognize objects in video and create computer-generated images. Early research led to today's methods for inserting objects into live video like the first-down line in televised football — other breakthroughs notwithstanding.
