Please forward this error screen to 172. The criteria a product must meet to successfully complete a test phase or meet delivery requirements. Formal testing conducted to enable a user, customer, or other authorized entity to determine whether to diagnostics of psychological development of the child a product or product component. A solid modeling engine or kernel used in a number of CAD systems.
Having a common solids modeling engine allows more ready interchange of data between different CAD systems. A file format for 3D solid geometry created by systems using the ACIS solids modeling engine. A technique used to help communication among team members and project personnel. Active listening involves paying careful attention to what is being said, then rephrasing that information and feeding it back to the originator to ensure that what you think you heard is what they meant. These cost drivers, such as the number of persons performing work or the number of setups required per product reflect the consumption of activities by the products. A discipline that focuses on the management of activities as a route to improving the value received by the customer and the profit received by providing this value. This discipline includes cost driver analysis, activity analysis, and performance measurement.
The technologies involved have previously been associated with rapid prototyping, but when these technologies are able to directly produce parts for products, additive manufacturing is a better description. Other related terms include layered manufacturing, digital fabrication, and direct digital manufacturing. QS-9000 process developed by the AIAG and used by the auto industry. It provides a quality framework to understand customer needs and determine all the actions with product and process design to assure that the production process can deliver products that satisfy those needs. An assessment at the start of product development to identify problems with other similar products so that preventative steps or countermeasures can be taken with the new product. Also referred to as a like product and process review. Affinity diagrams or charts are a simple way for a group to cluster qualitative data and come up with a consensus view on a subject.
It is often used with QFD to sort and organize the large amount of customer needs data. In this instance, statements of customer needs are written on cards or post-its. The cards or post-its are logically organized by the group and the group develops headings under which to cluster these needs. The cards or post-its are moved to the appropriate group headings. The characteristic of a product with a selling price that that is no more than its functional worth to a customer and is within the customer’s ability to pay. The model that describes the interpretation of the STEP integrated resources constructs that provide functional equivalence to the AP’s information requirements as specified in the application reference model. Required information documentation for the AIM includes the description of the entities of that information model and a summary of the rationale with which the resulting schema was derived from the application reference model.
The testing may be in a laboratory setting, a user testing area or even in the field by company personnel. Allocated requirements are requirements that apportion all or part of the performance and functionality of a higher-level requirement on a lower-level element of a system. Analysis of Variance is a basic statistical technique for analyzing experimental data. It subdivides the total variation of a data set into meaningful component parts associated with specific sources of variation in order to test a hypothesis on the parameters of a model or to estimate variance components. A decision making tool for complex, multi-criteria problems where both qualitative and quantitative aspects of a problem need to be incorporated.
AHP clusters the decision elements according to their common characteristics into a hierarchical structure similar to a family tree. Process Model was designed by TL Saaty as a decision making aid. Like FMEA, it has the objective of identifying and mitigating failures. Rather than asking developers to look for a cause of a failure mode, it reverses the problem by asking developers to view the failure of interest as the intended consequence and try to devise ways to assure that the failure always happens reliably. These specify implementable STEP data constructs for communicating information in a defined application context. It defines the context for the use of product data and specifies the use of the base standard in that context to satisfy an industrial need. AP’s are Parts in the 200 series of the STEP standard.
Two programs linked via an API can both be altered and still work together so long as both conform to the API. The assignment of goals such as reliability from system to subsystem in such a way that the whole system will meet the required goal. The framework and interrelationships of elements of a system. Architectural Principles are statements of preferred architectural direction or practice. Each principle should be stated in such a way that one will know if the architecture has the characteristics expressed by the principle. Principles need to be rationalized, stating why the principle is preferred. An information model that formally describes the information requirements and constraints for an application area.
The information model uses application-specific terminology and rules familiar to an expert from the application area. The model is independent of any physical implementation and must be validated by experts from the application area. EN9100 in Europe and JIS Q 9100 in Japan. The standard is controlled by the International Aerospace Quality Group. Assignable Cause is a source of variation which is not due to chance and, therefore, can be identified and eliminated. A link between two different functions in a CAD system that assures that a change made in one area is reflected in all other areas.
For example, a change to a solid model will be reflected in its drawing and related CAM program. Bi-directional associativity indicates that updates happen in both directions between functions. For example, a change to a drawing will be reflected in its solids model. ASIC and is later released for general use. ATE ranges from simple devices to verify mechanical or electrical continuity to sophisticated computerized systems with automatic sequencing, data processing, and readout. ATE may be stand alone test units or may be built into the operational equipment. Automatic Test Pattern Generation is the process that utilizes lists of faults and a model of the circuit to analyze the logical and topical nature of the circuit in order to create test vectors for each fault and, thereby, produce a high-fault-coverage test pattern for a design.
