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

World Conference On Quality And Improvement, Seattle, Washington
The act of innovating is defined as “the introduction of new things or methods.” Innovation itself is neither a new concept nor a new practice, but the demand for innovation in the workplace has shifted dramatically. Out-of-the-box thinking, paradigm shifts, and challenging the status quo are all efforts that organizations have embraced for decades to gain advantage. However, today’s exponential pace of change has shifted innovation from a practice that brings advantage to a practice that is required just to keep up. This mandate exists both for organizations as a whole and for the individuals that work within them. At a professional level, the innovation of one’s self can only be fully realized through the embracing of change, the acceptance of its inevitability, and the acknowledgement that a faster future is already here. The future IS now, and both organizations and individuals have a choice to either lead the change it is bringing or be led by the change that occurs. It is within these disruptive conditions that ASQ invites you to Seattle for the 72nd hosting of the World Conference on Quality and Improvement and the next step in becoming a more innovative YOU!

PPI-KIM is also the annual activity of Puslit Metrolog-LIPI in an effort to improve the national metrology infrastructure that is closely related to the improvement of quality and innovation. In this 44th event of PPI-KIM, the theme is “Strengthening Metrology Infrastructure to Ensure Health Services Quality.
This theme was chosen because in relation to medical equipment used to ensure the quality of health services, the government provides the equipment prerequisites contained in Indonesia Law Number 44 Year 2009 on Hospitals. It is mentioned that medical and non-medical equipment must meet service standards, quality requirements, safety, security, and use. To do so, it is also stated in the Law that the medical equipment shall be periodically tested and calibrated by the Health Facilities Testing Center and/or the institution of testing of authorized health facilities. However, the implementation of the Law is not easy. The biggest challenge facing is traceability. Hence, we need robust metrology infrastructure. In addition, the theme is also in accordance with the Government Work Plan of 2018 where there are ten national priorities and health is one of them.

    Simplicity for Metrology 4.0 #IMTS39, Chicago, Illinois
    It’s possible to define Metrology 4.0 as the next metrology revolution that will follow Industry 4.0. Part of this revolution involves shop-floor measurements happening right on the manufacturing floor, up to a complete integration of quality control methods into the manufacturing process. Automation seems to be the perfect solution to face the challenges that come along Metrology 4.0. However, most people often underestimate the complexity of integrating and automating metrology tools. For many companies, the dream of having a fully automated facility can quickly seem either unreachable or too expensive for the benefits that it can provide. Therefore, keeping the pace with Industry 4.0 could mean a real puzzle for the companies that count on innovation, automation and sophisticated processes to maintain their leading position in their respective industries! What if simplicity was the key to such a complex problem? This article focuses on solutions where simplicity becomes the competitive differentiator between products. This paper describes the various challenges of Metrology 4.0 and how, using simple yet powerful solutions, end-users can take on the next industrial revolution.

    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.
