GlobalSpec: DirectU2 Quality Control
April 20, 2010  
Industry Trends & Events . . .
Why Big Quality Plans Flop

Why Big Quality Plans Flop Lean and Six Sigma are great programs, but without best practices and strategic initiatives they might not deliver their full value. What are the internal land mines that can derail major corporate programs, such as quality control campaigns? One analyst in Industry Week identifies five such dangers, starting with the inability of change agents to communicate their vision throughout the organization. It's essential to convince decision makers of the relevance of your project and to demonstrate ways to measure progress. Initiatives such as Lean or Six Sigma also should be linked to compensation. Have you seen quality initiatives fall flat?

CE Marking is Your Products Passage to European-markets
DNV Business Assurance North America

CE Marking is Your Products Passage to European-markets The CE marking is mandatory and must be affixed before any product subject to it is placed on the European market or put into service. An ever expanding amount of products are exported and sold in the European market. The CE Mark declares that your product meets the essential requirements of all relevant EU directives and must be applied to any product covered by an EU directive. Learn more about CE Marking and DNV's services.

Vision Solves Cube Puzzle

Vision Solves Cube Puzzle The UK's Industrial Vision Systems eliminated manual sorting color-coded tags used to identify clothing in retail stores. Building blocks include two Firewire cameras and white LED diffused lighting, coupled with pneumatic actuators and escape tubes that carry cubes to appropriate bins. All this at the rate of 300 sorted parts per minute.

CompactRIO Gets Eyes

CompactRIO Gets Eyes Engineers using CompactRIO PAC for industrial control can add integrated vision to the process, reports Dataweek. To acquire images the system uses vision acquisition software to support Internet Protocol (IP) cameras and incorporates an analog frame grabber. Applications include robotics for obstacle avoidance, pattern recognition, and simultaneous localization and mapping.

Build a Better Catapult: Video

Build a Better Catapult: Video Need a refresher on design of experiments? This video shows how to use statistical software to create a three-factor experiment for a catapult competition. The goal: identify the key drivers that impact process output. You'll generate Pareto charts that rank the most significant factors so the catapult will launch a ball consistently at the desired distance.

Consider the Big Picture

Consider the Big Picture Process improvement campaigns must be part of an enhanced business management system that integrates predictive score cards and functional goals. A QC expert in Reliable Plant notes that programs like Six Sigma are viewed in isolation, and are dropped during tough times. He recommends a 'theory of constraints' to reduce weak links throughout the enterprise.

IEEE Targets Consumer Electronics

IEEE Targets Consumer Electronics IEEE's 1149.7 test and debug standard gives engineers more flexibility in dealing with the smaller form factors of consumer electronics, reports EE Times. The standard expands 1149.1 JTAG functionality; allowing a reduction in test interface pin count from four or more to two. Other features include: decreased scan-chain lengths, four selectable power modes, and chip-bypass testing.

Tester Reduces Airline Delays

Tester Reduces Airline Delays This test system analyzes sensor malfunction readings on aircraft doors, flaps, and landing gear, reports Test & Measurement World. Replacing LCR meters, the tester automates the process by graphically indicating a failed sensor's location. Viewing the aircraft as a flying circuit board, the system gathers data for long-term, fleet-wide performance analysis and predictive failure models.

CPSC: Ready for Action

CPSC: Ready for Action Manufacturers can avoid costly recalls if they launch proactive programs to design in safety and assure quality, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Chairman Inez Tennenbaum recently told apparel executives. Textile World reports that CPSC's budget is double what it was four years ago and its staff is increasing from 385 in 2008 to 530 this year. The commission is also harnessing new technology to collect and distribute information (see most recent recalls).

The Consumer Reports Automotive Hit Parade

The Consumer Reports Automotive Hit Parade There were some surprises on this year's list of Consumer Reports Top 10 cars. Six new models cracked the lineup: the Chevrolet Silverado and Traverse (see video), Mazda5, Nissan Altima, Subaru Forester, and Volkswagen GTI. While U.S. and European cars gained, Toyota models fell out of favor. The top picks represent the best all-around models in their categories, based on performance, reliability, and safety, including the magazine's own extensive testing program (see videos).
