Right-Sized Equipment DVD
Within lean manufacturing, companies seeking to improve flow, quality, and turnaround time while minimizing their capital spending use right-sized equipment. Instead of large product batches that must be stored, right-sized equipment produces just the amount of product needed, and errors in the process can be quickly exposed and eliminated. This Right-Sized Equipment program gives the viewer an exclusive look into one of the Boeing Company's Commercial Airplane Plant and Integrated Aero Structures business unit to explain how right-sized equipment fits with their lean journey.
Composite Materials and Manufacturing DVD
This program explains the basics of composite materials and manufacturing by featuring segments on: composite matrix and reinforcement materials, composite manufacturing processes, and composite fabrication and joining methods. The first segment features the primary types of matrix and reinforcement materials, as well as the various forms in which they are available.
Mechanical and Non-Destructive Testing DVD
This program explores both mechanical and non-destructive tests used to gage the quality of materials and parts throughout the manufacturing process. Mechanical tests are used to gather specific performance or property values of materials for part design purposes and quality control. Non-destructive tests examine an object or material in a manner that does not impair it's future usefulness.
