Inside Quality Digest Live for Sept. 7, 2018

Manufacturing and motivation

Published: Monday, September 10, 2018 - 11:59

IMTS is almost here, so we previewed the show, considered an important industry-academia partnership within manufacturing, and asked serious questions about the nature of motivation. Let’s take a look:

 IMTS Preview

Dirk, I, and much of the Quality Digest Live crew will be in Chicago next week for the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). Look out for episodes of the show from the booths of Nikon Metrology, Q-Mark Manufacturing, and Olympus America.

“The Problem With Intrinsic Motivation”

Finding meaning in what we choose to do should be simple, but it’s not always quite that easy. Joy is important, but aligning with your values and your sense of purpose is a critical piece of the puzzle, too.

CMS Corner With Ron Hicks and Ed Morse

The Precision Path Consortium (PPC) for Large-Scale Manufacturing is one of the Coordinate Metrology Society’s most important recent initiatives. In this interview, we get a PPC update from two of the program’s most important architects.

Off-Script: Welcome home, Dirk

Dirk has been in Scotland for the last three weeks. Before he left, I asked him what other cultures can teach those who are willing to see. So what exactly did he learn on his journey?

You can check out our next episode of Quality Digest Live from IMTS on Tues., Sept. 11, 2018, at 11 a.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Eastern, either via our home page or our dedicated player page. See you then!
