Tackling project-based processes

Project-based manufacturing and processes come with a unique set of headaches not usually experienced by make-to-stock manufacturers. We discuss those issues and some solutions with Matt Mong, VP of Market Innovation at Adeaca.

The value of Quality management in the digital era

Siemens Digital Industries Software extends the conventional paradigm of quality processes from requirements and design to planning, execution, and continuous improvement. Thanks to our broad product portfolio tailored to industry needs, manufacturers can boost innovation cycles and minimize quality-cost risks. With the quality processes integrated into Teamcenter and Opcenter, part of Xcelerator, manufacturers can take the first steps toward digital transformation for a competitive advantage.

How to optimize cost and quality

There's no need to choose between reducing costs and delighting customers. Best-in-class manufacturers are integrating QMS features into their MES solutions. We talk to Jason Spera, CEO and co-founder of Aegis Software

150 percent bills of material

How can a BOM be more than the sum of a product's parts? How this came to pass, the problems it causes, and what to do about it. Scott Heide of Engineering Intent explains.

Check out Olympus’ new Microscopy Demo Lab in San Jose!

Rob Bellinger of Olympus Corp. walks us through their demo lab in San Jose, California. We look at the LEXT OLS5100 3D Laser Scanning Microscope, MX63 Semiconductor Inspection Microscope, and the DSX1000 Digital Microscope available to see onsite!

LEXT OLS5100 3D Laser Scanning Microscope

We talk to Robert Bellinger of Olympus about the LEXT OLS5100 Laser Scanning Microscope.

Built for failure analysis and material engineering research, the OLS5100 laser microscope combines exceptional measurement accuracy and optical performance with smart tools that make the microscope easy to use. Precisely measure shape and surface roughness at the submicron level quickly and efficiently to simplify your workflow with data you can trust.

PolyWorks|Inspector™ - The Universal 3D Metrology Software Platform

PolyWorks|Inspector™ is a universal 3D dimensional analysis and quality control software solution to control tool or part dimensions, diagnose and prevent manufacturing and assembly issues, guide assembly building through real-time measurements, and oversee the quality of assembled products by using portable metrology devices and CNC CMMs. It offers an extensive set of guidance technologies for efficient, precise, and repeatable measurement processes for portable metrology devices. PolyWorks|Inspector™ offers the most flexible, user-friendly, and efficient CNC CMM offline sequencing workflow on the market.

Automate with GageWay Pro Interfaces

Are you looking for quality, accuracy, and timeliness in your measurement collection? Our GageWay Pro interfaces connect multiple gages and serial devices to a single computer port using physical connecting cables. They can transfer gage data into any Windows program or SPC/data acquisition software and are an excellent option for situations where gage mobility is not a requirement.

New skills needed for manufacturing

While automation may be replacing jobs, it is also creating new jobs. However, new skills are needed for today's manufacturing workers. Saar Yoskovitz, CEO of Augury, explains.

What the U.S. can do to expand apprenticeship programs.

Job losses caused by the pandemic continue to affect millions, especially for those employed in retail and hospitality, two sectors essentially shut down during the Covid-19 crisis. One solution for getting people back into the work force is apprenticeship programs. Funding new apprenticeships provides jobs, generates long-term gains in skills, productivity, and earnings.
