Management Systems: Goals, Objectives and the Process Approach, Webinar
A key foundation of the modern-day management system is the process approach. Through this approach, an organization can comprehend their needs/inputs, the necessary activities and the associated deliverables/outputs (including their "interested party's expectations"). An effective understanding of these needs, and the processes used to achieve them, will assure that the system has been architected to address the needs, with minimal waste, doing things correctly. Equally as important is the definition of clear metrics, and manageable goals, used to assure that the correct things are being done.

Through this session, attendees will be:
  • Exposed to the fundamental management system requirements associated with the process approach
  • Informed of the purpose for appropriately defined quality objectives / performance indices
  • Aware of the interrelations between these requirements and other applicable MS sections
  • Provided practical examples, and pitfalls, on the implementation / execution of these matters

The Joy of Engineering, Huddersfield, United Kingdom
Those who work in science and engineering roles know that many of these jobs result in leading-edge technologies, products and services. Engineering isn't just about repairing cars, it's also about designing new products, pushing the boundaries of technology and being creative.

In general, younger people are not encouraged to take up engineering careers which has led to a shortage of suitably trained skilled staff. They are not informed about how engineering can be creative and exciting and often do not even consider this direction for their future.

At this MMN 'Joy of Engineering' event we will present case studies to show how engineering is challenging, creative and exciting. Speakers will present their own stories about how they get enjoyment within their jobs and how young people are preparing for a future in engineering, and the evening will include lab tours.

    National Mole Day 2018, Theme: Moley Potter
    Celebrated annually on October 23 from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m., Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 1023), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. Mole Day was created as a way to foster interest in chemistry. Schools throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Mole Day with various activities related to chemistry and/or moles.

    For a given molecule, one mole is a mass (in grams) whose number is equal to the molar mass of the molecule. For example, the water molecule has an molar mass of 18, therefore one mole of water weighs 18 grams. Similarly, a mole of neon has a molar mass of 20 grams. In general, one mole of any substance contains Avogadro's Number of molecules or atoms of that substance. This relationship was first discovered by Amadeo Avogadro (1776-1858) and he received credit for this after his death.

    26th (2018)General Conference on Weights and Measures, Paris, France
    The General Conference on Weights and Measures (French: Conférence générale des poids et mesures • CGPM) is the senior of the three Inter-governmental organizations established in 1875 under the terms of the Metre Convention (French: Convention du Mètre) to represent the interests of member states. The treaty, which also set up two further bodies, the International Committee for Weights and Measures (French: Comité international des poids et mesures • CIPM) and the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (French: Bureau international des poids et mesures • BIPM), was drawn up to coordinate international metrology and to coordinate the development of the metric system.

    The conference meets in Sèvres (south-west of Paris) every four to six years. Initially it was only concerned with the kilogram and the metre, but in 1921 the scope of the treaty was extended to accommodate all physical measurements and hence all aspects of the metric system. In 1960 the 11th CGPM approved the Système International d'Unités, usually known as "SI".

    The 26th meeting has been scheduled for 13-16 November 2018. The kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole will be redefined at this meeting. It is expected that this meeting will agree the redefinition of the SI. As part of this Conference, BIPM will be organising a number of activities, including a press conference, to mark the occasion and are looking to broadcast the event live.

    Tolerancias dimensionales y geométricas, Querétaro, Méjico
    La calidad de gran número de productos o componentes manufacturados, está determinada en gran medida por sus características dimensionales y de forma. Debido a que la fabricación de piezas con dimensiones y geometrías se detalla en un dibujo, es necesario que los participantes tengan un nivel de conocimiento adecuado para su sana interpretación. De no ser así, la empresa podría estar fabricando muy lejos de las tolerancias especificadas para el producto.

    El personal involucrado en diseño, manufactura y verificación debería conocer e interpretar el mismo lenguaje de las TDyG, ofreciéndoles la posibilidad de producir las piezas con las especificaciones requeridas al menor costo. Si esta condición falla, el sistema se colapsa. Este curso te ofrece las herramientas necesarias para interpretar un dibujo tolerado a través de TDyG, y la oportunidad de aprender las reglas básicas del dibujo normalizado.

    El curso está basado en las normas de TGyD de ISO (International Organization for Standardization) y de ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers). Ambas normas se emplean en la industria mexicana y el curso resalta las diferencias más importantes. El curso ofrece el uso de diagramas y ejercicios reales en clase para fortalecer los conceptos presentadas.

    3rd International Conference on Design & Production Engineering 2018, Valencia, Spain
    Metrology is the science of measurement. Metrology includes all hypothetical and real-world aspects of measurement. Metrology also has three basic subfields, all of which make use of the three basic activities, though in varying proportions; Scientific or fundamental metrology, Applied, technical or industrial metrology, Legal metrology.

    Inspection is defined as a procedure in which a part of product characteristic such as a dimension is observed to determine whether it conforms to the design specification. Principally inspection is carried out to isolate and calculate a specific design or quality attribute of a component or product. In inspection, the part either passes or fails. Thus, industrial inspection has become a very important aspect of quality control.

    Metrology is defined as establishing the units of measurements and their reproduction in the form of standards and ascertaining the uniformity of measurements as well as developing methods of measurement, analysing the accuracy of methods of measurement. It is also described as establishing uncertainty of measurement, and investigating the causes of measuring errors and subsequently eliminating them.
    • Metrology and precious measurement
    • Jigs and fixtures
    • Surface finish measurement
    • Linear and different angular measurement
    • Alignment testing of machine tools

    Laborama 2019, Brussels, Belgium
    UDIAS organized in 1957 the first trade fair under the name Laborama. During this event, mainly laboratory equipment and measuring equipment were exhibited. Laborama evolved rapidly and partly due to the increasing number of exhibitors from the industry, the fair was renamed Instrurama in 1966. Instrurama once every three years took place in the palaces of Brussels Expo on the Heysel.

    In 1998, a scholarship was again organized at the request of the laboratory sector, specifically to offer distributors and manufacturers of laboratory equipment and accessories the opportunity to present their offerings. In 1998 Laborama started as a regional one-day scholarship. This means that 1 trade fair day is organized in Flanders and 1 day in Wallonia. In the meantime, the market has evolved considerably. So much so that the importance of Instrurama decreased. Partly on the advice of the exhibitors, this exhibition is no longer organized (for the time being). Laborama, on the other hand, is organized every year with increasing success!

The original aim of the Metre Convention - the world-wide uniformity of measurement - remains as important today as it was in 1875. The World Metrology Day project is realized jointly by the BIPM and the OIML. We hope that you enjoy this site and that your Country or Metrology Organization will join us and participate in this year's event.

    20 May 2019 - World Metrology Day
    The anticipated date for the redefined SI to come into practice. This date will mark the end of the celebrations outlining the redefinition of the SI. From this point onwards there will be no reference to the redefinition apart from in an historic context.

    9th International Conference on Computational Methods and Experiments in Material and Contact Characterisation, Lisbon, Portugal
    The aim of the conference is to facilitate interaction between the research and industrial community and discuss the latest developments in this rapidly advancing field. The meeting responds to the demand for high quality production for both industry and consumer, which has led to rapid developments in materials science and engineering. This requires the characterisation of the properties of the materials.

    Of particular interest to industry and society is the knowledge of surface treatment and contact mechanics of these materials to determine the in-service behaviour of components subject to contact conditions. Modern society requires systems that operate at conditions that use resources effectively. In terms of components durability, the understanding of surface engineering wear frictional and lubrication dynamics has never been so important.

    Current research is focussed on modifications technologies that can increase the surface durability of materials. The characteristics of the system reveal which surface engineering methods should be chosen and as a consequence it is essential to study the combination of surface treatment and contact mechanics.

    Combinations of different experimental techniques as well as computer simulation methods are essential to achieve a proper analysis. A very wide range of materials, starting with metals through polymers and semiconductors to composites, necessitates a whole spectrum of characteristic experimental techniques and research methods.
