Today, we partnered with our East Hartford, Connecticut neighbors at Goodwin College to host a Gauge Repeatability and Reproducibility (R&R) workshop at our Cedar Street plant site. We are one of the first companies to benefit from Goodwin’s new on-site training programs.
Goodwin delivered the training with their state-of-the-art 44-foot Advanced Manufacturing Mobile Training Lab, measurement equipment, software, and manufacturing instructor. The class provided a combination of class instruction and a hands-on learning experience for our employees.
Gauge R&R measures the variables in production measurement processes to confirm that the variations in measurement due to equipment and operators are not excessive, and to provide the needed information if corrective action is required.
We are longtime supporters of Goodwin’s mission and value the contributions they have made to the community. They are working hard to support the needs of local manufacturers by developing people with next generation manufacturing skills.
