Inside Quality Digest Live for Sept. 15, 2017

Strengthening U.S. business, metrology certification, kaizen for kids, and a Tech Corner demo featuring the zCAT portable DCC CMM

Published: Monday, September 18, 2017 - 12:00

QDL from Fri., Sept. 15, 2017, demonstrated that everywhere you look, you’ll find the positive effect of better quality. Here’s what we chatted about:

“U.S. Business Sectors Gain or Hold Steady in Public Esteem”

According to a recent Gallup survey, U.S. citizens’ outlook on a number of industries have improved so far in 2017. The news is especially good for agriculture, education, and computers, the three sectors to experience the biggest gains from 2016 to now.

CMS Corner Interview: Randy Gruver

Gruver is the chair of the Coordinate Metrology Society’s Certification Committee as well as an employee development specialist at Boeing. In these roles, he is well-versed in the positive effects of personnel metrology certification, both for individual technicians as well as the companies that employ them.

“Kindergarten Kaizen”

Quality Digest’s own Christopher Martin penned this account of the power of lean to improve any endeavor—even grade school. When his son hasn’t done his homework, Christopher educates him in the power of the 5 whys; when he can’t find his pencil, Christopher helps 5S the kid’s backpack.

Tech Corner: zCAT Portable Direct Computer-Control CMM

Jeff Petersen, international sales manager for the zCAT from Fowler Precision, stopped by our studio to show us this unique, portable DCC CMM.
