The System Approach to Precision Manufacturing - Grinding Processes - IMTMA/P023

Programme Background

What is System Approach?

The System Approach is a methodology for large scale improvement in total cost, quality and productivity.
It is an approach parallel to and possibly the next wave for manufacturing innovation after Lean and Six Sigma.

Why Grinding is critical?

  • Grinding is a critical and in most cases the final manufacturing process for all precision components manufacturing.
  • Grinding is a surface generation process that determines the quality and performance of many critical parts, subsystems and systems.
  • Grinding is a process widely used in many manufacturing industries :
    • From Automotive to Aircraft manufacturing
    • From Cutting tools to Carbide manufacturing
    • From Bearings to Semi-conductor manufacturing, etc.
  • Total cost, quality, productivity and performance of precision components are all very much impacted by grinding processes.

Course content

  • Participants will learn about the method to look at the manufacturing process "on-the-whole" as a system.
  • They will learn how to apply the Science, Engineering and Management principles pertinent to the process together coherently (and not as isolated pockets) to achieve large scale improvements in the process.
  • They will learn about the "Microscopic interactions" (e.g) what really happens when the sparks are produced?
  • Participants will participate in hands-on, laboratory style experiments, where they will collect the data and analyse the data during the grinding process.
  • There will be guest lectures from industry specialists on selected topics.

Our Initiatives

Productivity Institute

The need for Productivity Institute

  • Is your work place suffering from poor productivity?
  • Do you feel that supervision is weak on the shop floor?
  • Do your shop floor personnel find it difficult to achieve targets?
  • You have the machine in place, but not the men to optimize usage?
