Jay Gorajia What if you had a tool that could prevent problems in your processes and products before they occur? Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) is that tool.  FMEA is a formal process of identifying all the ways a process or product can fail, and then determining how to reduce or eliminate them. Product development groups and quality groups work tirelessly to identify ways their products and processes … Read More

Bernard Sutton Should we focus more on measuring the results, or the process that get us there? This is the constant balancing act that we all address. I personally prefer to work on the processes that ensure high quality. But without some measures on quality, how do we know these are working? Until someone invents a foolproof process, I would guess we still have to do both. We can, however, take steps to remove errors … Read More

Bernard Sutton I hope to see some Mentor customers at the SMTA conference this fall in Florida. I have the privilege of presenting a paper on Failure Mode Effects Analysis and how we can apply this methodology in electronics manufacturing. Its a specialist topic, but has great resonance with what we are trying to achieve in manufacturing. Allowing us to produce higher quality products from the analysis of potential … Read More

He had a distinguished and productive career with full service suppliers, original equipment makers and software organizations after military service. Bob travelled extensively around the world in his career, but lived all the while in Michigan. Bob was … Read More
