SME Webinar on Transforming the High-tech Educational Pipeline

Reading time ( words)

The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Tampa Bay Florida Suncoast Chapter 159 will be holding a webinar titled “Transforming the High Tech Educational Pipeline."

The free webinar will be presented by Tom Borkes, founder of The Jefferson Project, and will be held from Tuesday through Thursday, August 20–22. Multiple viewing times are available.

This webinar analyzes the traditional role the educational system plays in making a student ready for a real-world career and the widening gap in product design, engineering, and manufacturing. The webinar asserts that to be most effective in a globally competitive, cost-sensitive environment, students need to be introduced to product design, engineering, and production when they enter the educational pipeline and continue to be exposed to elements of the ever-changing technology as they move along through the pipeline’s primary segment.

Which Matters Most: Unit Cost or Total Cost of Supply?

08/09/2019 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
The primary objective for any OEM is to design, manufacture, and deliver high-quality products in the most cost-effective way possible. When demand patterns change, or there is an increase in competition, it can be easy to rely on the calculation of unit cost to relieve the price pressure. But, as many manufacturers are discovering, choosing to base their outsourcing decisions purely on unit cost may not always reap the expected benefits in the long term.

Conformal Coatings

While conformal coatings may have been something of an afterthought at the front of the design process, that can no longer be the case. Conformal coatings are now a critical part of any board assembly that might be subjected to challenging conditions. But coatings can also contribute to increased mean time between failure in any conditions, even environmentally controlled environments.

ICT or Flying Probe: Which Test Is Best for Your Assembly?
