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.

The 2012 Coference
"Learn it Today, Use it Monday"
was a great success

About the 2012 Workshop

The Ellis R. Ott Workshops in 2012 feature hands-on seminars, this year focusing. data mining, modeling leadership organizational structures, and applying lean methods to institutional quality systems.

The workshop-based model emphasizes skills under the theme of "Learn it Today, Use it Monday" – tools that attendees will receive personalized, capped-class size instructor led tools that can be immediately re-applied upon returning to the office following the conference. As such, the conference provides attendees the opportunity to obtain an immediate return on the time invested. This year’s workshop outputs feature take-home, out of the box quality control methods using Excel macros, creating a "two page quality manual", or a tailored leadership model depending on the attendee’s area of interest.

To preserve the quality of the face to face instruction, class sizes are kept small and seats will be limited.

The 2012 conference featured three all-day workshops:

  • QI Macros and Data Mining — Jay Arthur
  • Leading Organizations to Excellence — Thomas Pyzdek
  • Creating a Leaner Quality Management System — Mike Micklewright

About the Ellis R. Ott Conference

The Ott conference, now in its sixth decade was founded by Ellis R. Ott, Rutgers professor and early proponent of statistical quality control methodologies in American industry. Originally initiated in the late 1940S as the All Day Quality Conference on Statistical Control and Statistics in Industry at Rutgers University, the NY/NJ Metropolitan Section is proud to continue the tradition of fostering practical quality skills in the ever evolving contemporary quality profession.
