Chicago – Make plans to attend the IMTS 2014 Conferences to learn about Deploying Best Measurement Practices Across Your Organization.
DATE: Wednesday, September 10 from 10:00 AM - 10:55 AM ROOM: W-193B
SPEAKER: Dr. James G. Salsbury, Corporate Metrologist, Mitutoyo America Corp.
The immense flexibility of modern measuring systems provides opportunities for users to customize and optimize their measuring solutions to meet their economic, productivity, or accuracy goals. Modern measuring equipment, like coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), offer almost infinite flexibility, with the ability to measure all sizes of parts, any type of dimension or geometric characteristic and tolerance, and with hundreds of measuring functions built into powerful software. The same standard measuring system can be utilized for so many different applications across all industries; however, there is no single or best measurement implementation that applies generally. This presentation will provide some strategies for organizations to develop their own best measurement practices and deploy them across their organization. This presentation will discuss the value of measurement planning, which is a key step in finding and implementing the best measurement solution. This presentation will utilize concepts from the U.S. standard ASME B89.7.2, Dimensional Measurement Planning, and will show how the best practical solutions can be found when we understand, but not look for, the theoretically ideal solutions. This presentation will also discuss some of the infamous “tolerancing versus measurement” issues that continue to exist today and some strategies for managing measurement in the global marketplace amid the continual existence of different U.S. versus international standards.
- Identify roadblocks to success in the implementation of modern measuring equipment.
- Apply techniques for the development of optimal measurement plans and their deployment across an organization.
- Identify differences between US and international standards and analyze the impact.
