We discuss later how a company comes to be considered healthy. Some corporations run an active and sound business at all times. Toyota is said to be able to deliver a car to a customer within 20 days of receiving an order. Risks to Quality 13 Production engineering thus focuses on improving production speed to reduce the cost of indirect departments, including sales, administration, and development. To achieve the goal by taking advantage of quality engineering, we should stabilize the production process and drastically increase production speed.

Because a manufacturing department can improve market quality by a few percent only, it does not need to take that responsibility. The media splashed articles about our inappropriate preparation for these risks all over the front pages. In quality engineering we call such risks either signals or noises.

The best possible result is that the enemy hesitates to attack for fear of such weapons. On the other hand, quality engineering recommends that we evaluate uncountable noises in the market with only two noise factors. Because market noises are generated by users and are due to their conditions of use, the effects evaluated in their study would be minimal or nonexisting.

Take as an example an earthquakeproof building. Therefore, we do not assess a building using the point on the seismic intensity scale at which it will collapse. Using the signal-to-noise SN ratio, we evaluate its robustness to noises at a seismic intensity scale of about 4, for example.

In addition, as a countermeasure for human life, earthquake prediction is important as well as earthquake-proof and safety studies. Further, a robust house is not economical in the face of an enormous earthquake. Risk Management We usually have the following noises: Countermeasures against Risks 1. Noises due to erroneous or careless use 2. Noises due to the environment 3.

Among common countermeasures against such noises are the training of users to head off misuse and the prevention of subsequent loss and 14 1.

The Second Industrial Revolution and Information Technology damage by, for example, the design of easy-to-use products.

In Europe and the United States, the term, user friendly is often used for designs whose goal is to prevent misuse of software or medical errors. Of course, all error cannot be designed out of a product. For example, there are a vast number of automobile accidents every year because of mistakes in driving.

Since human errors are inevitable, it is essential to design sensors and alarms to let us know our mistakes or to design a system to avoid a car accident automatically.

In developing an integrated sensing system that can judge as human beings do, the MTS process in quality engineering may be instrumental. In other examples, such as handling radioactive substances, human errors cannot be prevented completely.

If certain human errors do not lead to such important results as sustaining human life or extremely valuable property, we do not need to take technical countermeasures. On the other hand, risk management handles noises that jeopardize human life, important property, or national treasures. In terms of hardware failures, there are some measures that can be used, such as redundant systems, daily routine checkups, or preventive maintenance. Such rational design is called on-line quality engineering [1, Chaps.

The natural environment includes earthquakes and typhoons. From an economic point of view, we should not design buildings that can withstand any type of natural disaster.

For an earthquake, for which point on the seismic intensity scale we design a building is determined by a standard in tolerance design. If we design the robustness of a building using the quality engineering technique, we select a certain seismic intensity, such as 4, and study it to minimize the deformation of the building.

However, this does not mean that we design a building that is unbreakable even in a large-scale earthquake. To mitigate the effects of an earthquake or typhoon on human life, we need to forecast such events. Instead of relying on cause-and-effect or regression relationships, we should focus on prediction by pattern recognition. This technique, integrating multidimensional information obtained to date, creates Mahalanobis space see Section 4. The Mahalanobis distance becomes 1, on average, in the space.

We assume that the Mahalanobis space exists as unit space only if there is no earthquake. We wish to see how the Mahalanobis distance changes in accordance with the SN ratio forecasting accuracy proportional to the seismic intensity after we calculate a formal equation of the distance after an earthquake.

Risks to Quality The same technique holds for problems of the elderly. In actuality, there are quite a few year-olds who are still healthy and alert. We would collect information from their youth, such as how many cigarettes they smoked. What sorts of information should be gathered is a matter of the design of the information system. For n different-aged persons belonging to a unit space, we create the Mahalanobis space for their information by collecting either quantitative or qualitative data, such as professions.

This Mahalanobis space is a unit space. For this information we calculate a distance for a single person who is senile or cannot lead a normal life. If the distance becomes great and at the same time matches the degree of how senile or bedridden a person is, we may be able to forecast and change the futures of some elderly people.

For the most part, some items in the list are not helpful. Recently, in the world of software engineering, a number of problems have been brought about by hackers.

Toll collection systems for public telephones, for example, involve numerous problems. Before you call, you insert a coin. If your call is not connected, the coin is returned after the phone is hung up. Dishonest people put tissue paper in coin returns to block returning coins because many users tend to leave a phone without receiving their change.

To tackle this crime, designers added an alarm that buzzes when coins are removed from a phone; but change collectors decoy people in charge by intentionally setting off alarms at some places, in the meantime stealing coins from other phones. A good design would predict crimes and develop ways to know what criminals are doing.

Then it became necessary to deal with counterfeiting of coins, bills, and cards. Another problem is that of hackers, who have begun to cause severe problems on the Internet.

These crimes can be seen as intentional noises made by malicious people. Education and laws are prepared to prevent them and the police are activated to punish them. No noises are larger than the war that derives from the fact that a national policy is free. At the same time, the mass media should keep check on UN activities to control the highest-ranked authority.

Although the prevention of wars around the world is not an objective of quality engineering, noises that accompany businesses should be handled by quality engineering, and MTS can be helpful by 15 16 1. The Second Industrial Revolution and Information Technology designing ways to detect counterfeit coins, for example, and to check the credibility of borrowers.

We reproduce below a part of a research paper by Willie Moore. However, these ideas are not brand-new. The reason is that Ford has arrived at the new understanding after reconsidering the background of these ideas.

In addition, they comprehend the following four simple assertions by Dr. Taguchi: 1.

Taguchi's Quality Engineering Handbook

Cost is the most important element for any product. Quality can be improved without cost increase. This can be achieved by the utilization of the interactions with noise. Cost can be reduced through quality improvement. Historically, the United States has developed many quality targets, for example, zero-defect movement, conformity with use, and quality standards.

Currently, Ford has a philosophy, methods, and technical means to satisfy customers. Among technical means are methods to determine tolerances and economic evaluation of quality levels. Assertion 4 above is a way of reducing cost after improving the SN ratio in production processes.

Quality and cost should be well balanced. The word quality as discussed here means market losses related to defects, pollution, and lives in the market. A procedure for determining tolerance and on- and off-line quality engineering are explained later. Determining Tolerance Quality and cost are balanced by the design of tolerance in the product design process. The procedure is prescribed in JIS Z [2] as a part of national standards. Assuming a constant vehicle power and given that acceleration is the second derivative of distance with respect to time, Equation 9 resolves to a second-order Ordinary Differential Equation ODE of the form indicated in Equation The ODE is a function of the first derivative of distance vehicle speed because the tractive effort, the rolling resistance, and aerodynamic resistance forces are all functions of the vehicle speed.

In addition, the ODE may be a function of the distance traveled if the roadway grade changes along the study section. It should be noted at this point that because the tractive effort includes a minimum operand, the derivative of acceleration becomes a non-continuous function. Consequently, a first-order solution technique is inevitable, as will be described subsequently in the paper. This section first describes the test truck that was utilized to conduct the validation effort. Second, the study roadway section is described in detail prior to discussing the specifics of the validation effort.

Finally, the model validation results are presented and discussed. The truck used a Cummins NTC engine with an engine power rating of kW hp at an engine speed of rpm. The peak torque of N. The engine was fairly large with a piston displacement of 14 liters cu. The test vehicle and trailer was composed of a single trailer with a total of 6 axles, and thus would be classified as vehicle class 10 using the Federal Highway Administration FHWA classification.

The front axle was a single axle, the tractive axle was a dual axle, and the trailer axle was a triple axle.

The truck did not have any aerodynamic fixtures and used radial tires. The horizontal layout of the test section is fairly straight with some minor horizontal curvature that does not impact vehicle speeds.

The vertical layout of the section demonstrates a substantial upgrade that ranges from 6 percent at the leftmost end to 2. In constructing the vertical profile of the test section the elevation of 35 stations were surveyed, as indicated by the diamond symbols in Figure 3. The vertical profile of the test section was then generated by interpolating between the station elevations using a cubic spline interpolation procedure at 1-meter 3.

The cubic spline interpolation ensures that the elevations, the slopes, and the rate of change in slopes are identical at the boundary conditions in this case every meter. The grade was computed for each 1-meter 3. A polynomial regression relationship was fit to the grade data R2 of 0.

First, to ensure a smooth transition in the roadway grade while maintaining the same vertical profile. Second, to facilitate the solution of the ODE because it ensures that the grade function is continuous.

The modified grade and vertical elevation, which are illustrated in Figure 3 thick line , demonstrate an almost identical vertical profile with much smoother grade transitions when compared to the direct interpolation. Apart from a m ft segment of the roadway that was a rigid pavement, the entire roadway surface was asphalt. Consequently, a rolling resistance coefficient for asphalt pavement was only utilized.

In addition, it should also be noted that the quality of the road surface was good when the test runs were conducted. These factors are important in identifying the road surface rolling resistance coefficients, as will be discussed later.

This section describes how vehicle speeds were measured and the specifics of the test run execution. GPS is a worldwide, satellite-based radio- navigation system that can determine with certain accuracy the position and velocity of any object equipped with a GPS receiver. Typical output data from GPS receivers include latitude, longitude, altitude, speed, heading and time.

GPS receivers can also typically update these parameters once every second. Nominal position accuracy is specified with a m ft spherical error probability, while nominal velocity accuracy is specified with a 0.

These inaccuracies are attributed to a number of sources of error. The majority of the errors are linked to the way the distance between a satellite and a GPS receiver is measured.

Within the system, distances are measured by calculating the time it takes for a signal to travel between a satellite and a receiver. Consequently, any delay in the signal transmission then results in distance overestimation and inaccuracies in the estimated position of an object. Test Run Description The test runs involved accelerating at the maximum possible acceleration rate from a complete stop at the start of the test section. The acceleration continued until the end of the test section, over the entire 1.

Rakha, Lucic, Demarchi, Setti, and Van Aerde 12 In an attempt to alter the mass-to-power ratio, a total of ten mass configurations were analyzed using the same test truck.

The truck and trailer mass was altered by progressively reducing the number of concrete blocks on the trailer from 9 to 0 blocks, with each block weighing approximately kg lb. Axle weights were recorded prior to conducting the test runs using General Electrodynamics Corporation GEC weigh scales with an advertised accuracy of 98 percent. In conducting the study, a minimum of 10 repetitions was executed for each load configuration in order to provide a sufficient sample size for the validation analysis.

Model Parameters The proposed dynamics model was applied by setting the model parameters to reflect the truck, trailer, altitude, tire, and pavement conditions. These parameters included: a.

A horsepower of kW hp , assuming that the engine operates at maximum power over the entire section to compute maximum acceleration levels. The percentage mass on the tractive axle was computed as the percentage mass on axles 2 and 3 relative to the entire truck and trailer mass, as shown in Table 5. The air drag coefficient Cd was set to 0. The rolling resistance coefficients were set to 0.

The frontal area was set to Model Results Given that the ODE that is presented in Equation 11 is a second-order ODE it can be recast as a system of two first-order equations an nth-order equation reduces to a set of n 1st- order equations , as demonstrated in Equation Determining turning radii and off-tracking for single and combination vehicles.

Philippine Bus Enthusiasts Society.Yet this would not hold true for companies with a smaller market share because they could expand their market share and increase their sales, whereas companies with a larger market share would lose sales.

Develop curves similar to the Highway Capacity Manual HCM curves that reflect grade, truck, pavement, and tire conditions. This holds true when one country exports products to another country, causing the loss of many jobs in that country. Specifically, the model constrains the maximum tractive force that is computed in Equation 1 using Equation 2, as demonstrated in Equation 3.

This is about how we offer credit to each person in a society.
