Lunch and Learn Session: Tackling Manufacturing Process Variation

June 26, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Join us June 26th  enjoy lunch and learn about the benefits of adopting process control techniques and of implementing a proper process foundation.

Process variation is the enemy of manufacturing competitiveness and profitability.  It causes waste and inefficiency, higher costs, late deliveries and poor traceability. The secret to consistent and productive machining is to understand where variation comes from and how to deal with it at source.

Renishaw’s Productive Process Pyramid™ provides a framework within which to identify and control variation in your factory.   The Productive Process Pyramid™ shows how layers of control can build upon one another to systematically remove variation from the machining process, increase throughput, maximize conformance, and eliminating human error.


Process foundation

The process foundation layer is about providing a stable environment in which the process is to be performed.  This includes optimizing and monitoring the performance of the machine itself. These preventative controls reduce the number variation sources before machining.
