2018 Spring Mini Ott ASQ NJIT Quality Conference

Following this ASQ tradition, this spring (April 3rd, 2018) we are pleased to take our attendees to the new NJIT Makerspace, a $11.6 million hi-tech facility.

In the first half of the program we’ll visit our new Makerspacer laboratory at NJIT to explain and demonstrate How Hi-tech, Feedback Controlled Manufacturing and Fabrication Systems Can Enable Zero-defect Production Results.

The NJIT Makerspace is a new educational and research facility planned to expand to 24,000 sq ft. It serves students in all NJIT majors, with plans to include in its user-audience high school students from NJIT’s vicinity as well as activities for workforce training. The NJIT Makerspace focuses on hi-tech manufacturing and houses an impressive assortment of industrial manufacturing, production, and prototyping equipment. Students will have access to Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining centers, industrial metrology equipment, 5-Axis water jet, wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM), manual metalworking equipment, electronics assembly equipment, 3D printing, laser cutting, and a full complement of hand tools. In NJIT’s Makerspace, students, faculty members and industrial collaborators will have access to an unmatched assortment of state of the art equipment and training resources, which will drive the facility to become a campus hub where students, faculty, and industry gather to collaborate, build, design, innovate and create.

This will take place in the NJIT GITC building, ground floor.

In the second half of the program we’ll join another laboratory to perform our Zero-defect Quality Modeling Methods Using Lean Six-sigma Statistical Analysis by Paul G Ranky and his students. This will take place in the NJIT GITC building, room 2305.

DATE, TIME & PLACE: April 3, 2018, NJIT, GITC Makerspace facility, GITC bldg. ground floor entrance. We’ll meet here sharp at 6 pm.

ASQ NJIT Fall Ott Conference – October 9th, 2017

Join us for the ASQ NJIT Fall Ott Conference on Visual Factory Management, Collaborative Robotics, Lean six-sigma Methods, Tools and Case Studies, organized by the NJIT ASQ Student Leadership Team: Michelle Vollo, President, Jovana Stijovic and Jelena Stijovic, Vice Presidents, Avery Bechtel, Program Chair, Philip Lelikov, Secretary, Terry Asante, Educational Chair, and Paul G Ranky, Founding Academic Advisor.

Several presenters will discuss Visual Factory Management, Collaborative Robotics, Lean six-sigma Methods, Tools and Case Studies in academia, as well as in industry. The core focus is Zero Defect Devices, Production, Service and Systems, including Root Cause Analysis (RCA). Root Cause Analysis is an essential first step when starting a six-sigma study for process improvement by controlling variations. RCA is generally applicable in situations where a defect occurs and there is a possibility that it might be beneficial to identify and address the real cause so that the situation does not occur again.

Every session will follow an interactive workshop style.

Event Date & Time: October 9, 2017, 6 to 9 pm

Location: NJIT (New Jersey Institute of Technology), Newark, NJ 07102, GITC building, room 2305

Lean Six Sigma, Ott Quality Conference @ NJIT

NewsDate: October 19, 6-9 pm

Place: GITC2305, NJIT, Newark, NJ 07102

Registration: FREE event, no need to register. The maximum capacity of the venue is 46 people so get there early! If you have any questions please contact Paul Ranky at ranky@njit.edu

Seminar-1: The Relationship Between Visual Factory Management and Ergonomics by Michelle Vollo
Everyday, people interact with machines and/or processes in almost all situations or environments. This interaction between human and technology can be studied as a single system where each component works together to complete a specific goal. This presentation focuses on how humans play a role in this system and how visual aids can be used in the system to achieve usability, efficiency, safety and error-free performance.

Seminar-2: Quality Engineering Management Methods of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT): An Interactive Session with Practical Examples by Paul G Ranky
The Industrial Internet of Things means computer controlled, networked sensors, devices, machines, cells, lines and larger systems and able humans working together. More accurately, the convergence of machines and intelligent data generated by humans as well as machines in an integrated system is known as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), or in other words, the Internet of Everything (IoE).

Seminar-3: Zero Defect by Quality Design: An Interactive Session with Practical Examples by Paul G Ranky and Michelle Vollo
This interactive seminar is about how to achieve zero defect products, processes and systems by quality design. The seminar uses a novel kit and software, designed by Dr Ranky. Format: Interactive Workshop
