Inside Quality Digest Live for Aug. 18, 2017

Girl Scouts and STEM, IATF 16949, drones, metrology certification, and more

Published: Tuesday, August 22, 2017 - 12:00

There was a lot of ground to cover on this week’s show… fortunately we had drones (I mean, unmanned aircraft systems) to help us cover it all. Here’s a quick flyby:

“Girl Scouts Offer New Badges for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

The Girl Scouts of the USA are now offering their members the chance to earn 23 new badges—the largest addition of badges in more than a decade—in areas that encompass STEM education. It’s all intended to break down the barriers preventing young girls from learning about the various opportunities for careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

It’s Been a Rough Transition to IATF 16949

In this interview, Chad Kymal, CTO of Omnex, presents findings about the transition thus far to the new IATF 16949 quality management system standard designed for those in automotive sector. We’ll also preview the webinar, “Rough Transition to IATF 16949—Third-Party Audit Findings, Conclusions, and Recommendations,” occurring on Tuesday, August 22nd, at 2 p.m. Eastern, 11 a.m. Pacific. Register here.

Don’t Call Them Drones”

That’s “unmanned aircraft systems” to you and me... and they’re here to stay! Whether inspecting welds, improving agricultural efficiency, or delivering pizzas or packages, these flying wonders are opening up new avenues for quality improvement everywhere you look.
