Engineering a Lean Supply Chain DVD

This Engineering a Lean Supply Chain program explores the business practice of supply chain collaboration and explains how companies are "leaning" their supply chain. New competitive pressures have made all manufacturing companies realize they need to be part of a supply chain and focus their business on the part of the process they do best. The constant flow of materials and information within these supply chains can contain a large amount of waste if not managed properly. We will show why collaboration between customers and suppliers is so important and where you can find waste in your supply chain.

Electrical Discharge Machining DVD

Electrical discharge machining (EDM) shapes metal by creating sparks that melt tiny portions of the workpiece, and is an exceptionally diverse process that generates no cutting forces. EDM is especially useful in the production of fragile parts that cannot take the stress of conventional machining. This program examines the EDM process and the two primary forms of electrical discharge machining — ram EDM and wire EDM.
