In McKinsey Organizational Health Index (OHI) of almost 2,000 companies, 62 percent were pursuing continuous improvement as a means of moving from good to great.
Whitlock Consulting Group Process Review and ImprovementIn this effort WCG consultants will assess all business systems and specify current insufficiencies – both in technology and process.
The first step of this assessment will be to collectively create an exhaustive list of processes needing analysis and all systems in use, then conduct on-site meetings with the power users to fully understand the organization’s daily processes and observe the systems in real-time operation. WCG will then take this information to build a process-by-process analysis that will list out specific process and system insufficiencies.
The above insufficiencies will then be paired with possible improvement opportunities given the solutions that exist in the market today. WCG will help identify whether these improvements can come from updating current configuration, streamlining internal processes, whether a system upgrade would address the issue, whether a system replacement would be needed, or finally, if another peripheral technology upgrade could deliver the desired improvement.
Smart Industrial Solutions
WCG can help your company navigate the many IoT and other advanced technology options and identify the best solutions for your production environment & processes.
Smart manufacturing is about creating an environment where all available information—from within the plant floor and from along the supply chain—is captured in real-time, made visible and turned into actionable insights. Smart manufacturing comprises all aspects of business, blurring the boundaries among plant operations, supply chain, product design and demand management. Enabling virtual tracking of capital assets, processes, resources and products, smart manufacturing gives enterprises full visibility which in turn supports streamlining business processes and optimizing supply and demand.
WCG’s process engineering and product costing expertise spawns from vast experience with some of the world’s leading manufacturing and engineering firms. Let WCG leverage this insight into valuable process optimizations and system solutions for your company.

Application of Industry 4.0
Law of diminishing returns in regards to cost cutting and efficiency improvements
You can effectively cut the first 10% w incremental changes (ie scale, standardization) but the next 10% is much more difficult
You must apply different principles and approaches to achieve that next level and to become a market leader
I4.0 is not simply a one-stop, plug and play product
It is a piece-mealed solution that requires the proper infrastructure, updated processes, resources, and data management
Connectivity can tie machine performance to KPIs to enable machine-as-a-service purchasing agreements (subscription method where payments are tied to KPIs)

A Process Study of Lactic Acid Production from Phragmites australis Straw by a Thermophilic Bacillus coagulans Strain under Non-Sterilized Conditions
Phragmites australis straw (PAS) is an abundant and renewable wetland lignocellulose. Bacillus coagulans IPE22 is a robust thermophilic strain with pentose-utilizing capability and excellent resistance to growth inhibitors. This work is focused on the process study of lactic acid (LA) production from P. australis lignocellulose which has not been attempted previously.
Using the integrated process, 41.06 g LA was produced from 100 g dry PAS. The established integrated process results in great savings in terms of time and labor, and the fermentation process under non-sterilized conditions is easy to scale up for economical production of lactic acid from PAS.

Siemens Easy Process Plan Software
Feature-Based Framework for Inspection Process Planning
inspection process planning, including the design and selection of the technical system to realize the dimensional and geometrical verification of the manufactured artefacts, has been traditionally considered separately from the rest of the manufacturing process planning, and even also from the product functional specification tasks. In this work, a feature-based framework for inspection process planning, based on a similar approach to the one applied in GD&T (Geometrical Dimensioning & Tolerancing) specification, analysis and validation of product artefacts, is presented. With this work, the proposed framework and feature concept ability to model interaction components belonging to both the product and the inspection system (inspection solution) is proved.

Verification operations on large machine tools typically require ‘days’ of downtime. Checks are scheduled infrequently, and manufacturing schedules often result in them being cancelled altogether. When used, verification checks usually only measure single axes independently of one another and dynamic machine tests cover highly restricted small volumes, limiting their utility. INSPHERE’s BASELINE system places a high-accuracy laser tracker within a machine tool and tracks a target held in the machine’s tool-holder. A G-code program is then run to gather precise three-dimensional static and dynamic datasets throughout the working volume of the machine. It can be used in simple 3-axis machines, or equally easily in those with more complex configurations of linear and rotary axes. The system runs a rapid machine check, reducing machine verification downtime from five days to as little as one hour! This allows checks to be conducted far more frequently, INSPHERE NATEP 1generating deeper insights into machine performance. Clear, actionable data is generated for maintenance, and manufacturing process confidence can be increased.

Aluminum Cast Tool and Jig Plate
Because they are aluminum, these plates are approximately one-third as heavy as steel plate, which usually eliminates the need for heavy handling equipment for installation or set up, and reduces the load on ways and screws. It is highly resistant to corrosion so it requires no protective treatment. After the tool is obsolete, Aluminum Tool and Jig plate has a higher salvage value than Steel Tool and Jig Plates.
Wire Clamp Jig CW-5000N
Create jigs and fixtures faster, while lowering the cost of production. Lighter alignment tools, rigid holding devices, conforming grips – 3D print all the customized tools you need, on demand. And more cost-effectively than machined tools. The result? Tooling done more efficiently, with shorter lead times and improved productivity.
Compared to CNC machining, 3D printing jigs and fixtures takes 25% of the time to produce, wastes less material and costs don’t increase with complexity. And you can run near labor-free production. All of which unleashes your creativity to design and test, with rapid iterations. It all adds up to increased production and gets you to market faster.

KYOCERA’s New Industrial Cutting Tool with Ultra-Durable Coating Materials Maximizes Steel Cutting Performance
New CA025P CVD coating technology and base material with excellent durability ensures long-term cutting performance for automotive and industrial machining.
Kyocera Corporation (President: Hideo Tanimoto) announced today that it has developed a new ultra-durable coating technology and base material for indexable industrial cutting tool inserts to improve steel machining.
Researchers at Linköping University have developed a theoretical model that enables simulations for showing what happens in hard cutting materials as they degrade. The model will enable manufacturing industry to save both time and money.
The model has been published in the open access scientific journal Materials.
Titanium-aluminium nitride is a ceramic material commonly used as coating for metal cutting tools. With the aid of a titanium-aluminium nitride thin film, the cutting edge of a coated tool becomes harder, and the lifetime of the tool longer. A very particular feature of the coated surface is that it becomes even harder during the cutting process, a phenomenon that is known as age hardening.
Ceramics materials and their application to cutting tool technology: A review
Ulanbek Auyeskhan, Asma Perveen
Development of new manufacturing processes and new materials for various industrial applications has pushed the development of cutting tool towards its limit. Recent ceramic cutting tool shows capability of cutting hard to machine materials with high spindle speed as well as supports the concept of green manufacturing. Two major categories of ceramic tools such as alumina and silicon based are thoroughly discussed along with their properties.
