The Workshop: 
Root cause analysis (RCA) is a systematic process for identifying “root causes” of problems and an approach for responding to them. It is based on the idea that effective management requires more than “putting out fires” for problems that develop, but finding a way to prevent them. It helps pinpoint contributing factors to a problem. RCA helps organizations avoid the tendency to single out one factor to arrive at the fastest resolution. It also helps to avoid treating symptoms rather than actual, underlying problems that contribute to the real problem. Most RCA experts believe that achievement of total prevention by a single intervention is not always possible and see RCA as an ongoing process that strives for continuous improvement.

The primary goal of using RCA is to analyze problems to identify:

  • What happened
  • How it happened
  • Why it happened so that…
  • Actions to prevent recurrence are developed

Who Should Attend:

  • Continuous Improvement & Quality personnel
  • Business and manufacturing leaders
  • Small and medium sized manufacturers

Participants are encouraged to bring problems or issues from their place of work that can be used as real life exercises in the workshop.

Technology Demonstration on Generative Design and Additive Manufacturing

Webinar

Join us for a virtual presentation on the use and results of generative design and resulting demonstration parts printed by CCAT. Generative design mimics nature’s evolutionary approach to design. Parameters such as materials, manufacturing methods, strength and thermal requirements are defined, and the AI driven generative design process fully optimizes the design to best fulfill functional requirements.

Supporting Digital Transformation with Legacy Components

Digital transformation (DX) promises increased competitiveness, optimized processes and profitability through big data, along with improved employee and customer relations. Gathering data is essential in the 21st century data-oriented environment and requires flexible, interconnected components. Businesses will need people with the specialized skills to implement and optimize all of this. Beyond that, each firm will have to work with its unique DX plans and existing IT environment.

NH’s Supply Chain Challenges

Across industries, New Hampshire businesses have been navigating the burdens of skyrocketing prices and difficulties obtaining essential materials since the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted supply chains.

Department of Energy Awards $3.7 Million to Address U.S. Manufacturing Challenges

On Monday, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded $3.7 million for high performance computing (HPC) projects that address key challenges in U.S. manufacturing and materials development. As part of DOE’s High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) initiative, the 13 selected teams will work with the Department’s national laboratories to apply advanced modeling, simulation, and data analysis to projects that improve manufacturing efficiency and explore new materials for energy application.

Commonly Misused Terms in Cybersecurity

When I created the cybersecurity term database, which is the backbone of the NIST Cybersecurity Glossary, I was amazed at how much confusion there was about even ubiquitous terms like “risk” and “security.” There still is no real consensus of what the word “cybersecurity” means! So, I’ve compiled a list of some commonly misused terms in the field of cybersecurity (these are unofficial descriptions that are meant to be informative):
