Troy, MI, United States, 2012/09/11 - Don Jasurda to present, “Managing the Cost of Quality,” reducing the cost of producing high quality products in aerospace manufacturing - 3DCS.com.
Don Jasurda, VP of Sales at Dimensional Control Systems (DCS), provider of engineered quality solutions, will speak at the Aerospace Manufacturing and Automated Fastening Conference & Exhibition on applying a closed-loop approach to manage the cost of quality in manufacturing. With this approach, users precisely meet their quality requirements by identifying and focusing on the key characteristics affecting quality while minimizing excessively tight tolerance specifications that can increase cost and delivery time.
The conference will be held at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas, September 18 – 20, 2012. Don Jasurda will present “Managing the Cost of Quality” at 1:00 pm. on Wednesday, September 19.
The presentation highlights that quality is no longer a differentiator in manufacturing. With today’s standards, high quality products are expected. The focus is no longer just to craft quality products, but to craft high quality products consistently and cost effectively. This is what defines success in today’s competitive global market.
Jasurda will elaborate on one method of achieving this goal, called the “closed-loop” approach. This approach to quality management links quality and cost data to allow engineers and program teams to make business decisions earlier, based on data. More importantly, this approach enables constant feedback of actual results to analysis models, utilizing actual production data in optimizing specifications and performing root cause analysis. Engineers can use this methodology to identify and focus on critical points and problems directly affecting quality, allowing quick and efficient problem solving.
Don Jasurda states that,“The closed-loop approach is referred to as such because it closes the loop on engineering and manufacturing. It enables engineers to use simulation to analyze fabrication and assembly operations. By analyzing variation and tolerance specifications early, during initial product development, significant cost can be taken out of the production process, and more value maintained through the full product lifecycle.”
The SAE AMAF Conference & Exhibition is the forum where the aerospace community gathers to present and discuss current and future challenges, opportunities and requirements of next-generation aircraft, product and systems. Focusing on fasteners, tooling, automation, materials, structures and manufacturing, the technical program will provide aircraft technology and application essential to aerospace professionals.
