Topic: How Correcting Commonly Overlooked Design and Measurement Errors Significantly Improves Efficiency for Your Company
Speaker: Dr. Greg Hetland, International Institute of GD&T

Abstract: Commonly overlooked design, manufacturing & measurement errors that can have an immediate & significantly positive impact on improving efficiency, yields and time to market. The current and growing state of technology advances in the mechanical and electro-mechanical engineering fields require higher precision in the interpretation, advanced applications and analysis in design, manufacturing and metrology. Key drivers influencing this need include: product and feature miniaturization, tolerance truncation, advanced product and equipment reliability. The critical engineering language, Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) is the "foundational language" required to achieve core knowledge and confidence by designers in optimally specifying design specifications, understanding how to leverage the available tolerance by manufacturing and how to improve throughput and higher confidence by metrologists. This presentation will highlight a couple commonly overlooked design, manufacturing and measurement errors that can have an immediate & significant impact on improving efficiency.

Topic: Automation Opportunities that Improve Your Measurement and Process Feedback and Business Outcomes
Speaker: Rick Cullen, Lowell, Inc.
Abstract: Pending

Topic: Common Errors and Innovation with Drywell Temperature Calibrators
Speaker: Dallen Baugh, Additel Corporation
Abstract: 
We will discuss the components that make up a calibration system, and common errors that users may or may not be aware of when using a drywell calibrator. We will also discuss ways to minimize these errors. We will also have a discussion about the use of a reference probe with a dry-well calibrator. In addition, we will talk about new innovations that have made drywells better, faster, and more productive.

Topic: Dimensional Measurement Uncertainty in Caliper Calibration
Speaker: Brian Downie, Precision Repair & Calibration
Abstract: Pending
