Free sample

Smart Inspection Systems: Techniques and Applications of Intelligent Vision will enable engineers to understand the various stages of automated visual inspection (AVI) and how artificial intelligence can be incorporated into each stage to create "smart" inspection systems. The book contains many examples that illustrate and explain the application of conventional and artificial intelligence techniques in AVI. The text covers the whole AVI process, from illumination, image enhancement, segmentation and feature extraction, through to classification, and includes case studies of implemented AVI systems as well as reviews of commercially available inspection systems. Each chapter concludes with exercises.

This book will be of interest to users and developers of commercial industrial inspection systems as well as researchers in the fields of machine vision, artificial intelligence and advanced manufacturing engineering.

A practical, concise guide to improving business performance by properly applying quality management methods

"Dr. Juran's wisdom on quality and management is timeless. The tenets of modern quality that were forged by Dr. Juran in the second half of the 20th century are made contemporary by Joe DeFeo's practical experience and application of these principles in hundreds of organizations. This book belongs in the library of every leader who strives for world-class performance and wants to understand the concepts, techniques, and tools that will deliver it." -- PAUL BORAWSKI, Chief Executive Officer, ASQ - The Global Voice of Quality

Dr. Joseph Juran was the world's foremost thought leader on improving the financial performance of an organization with "quality management." In this book, Dr. Juran's successor as CEO of Juran Institute, Joseph A. DeFeo, uniquely distills Dr. Juran's life's work on quality with some of today's latest practices into a practical action plan for creating a strong, successful, globally competitive enterprise.

Juran's Quality Essentials for Leaders offers succinct, proven methods applicable to any country, company, or industry, from service to manufacturing. This concise guide explains how today's leaders can:

Embrace quality and not miss an opportunity to improve performance Lead an organization through sustainable financial change while fostering a culture of quality Stop useless initiatives by aligning goals with the strategic plan Challenge new product or service development methods Create breakthroughs in baseline performance Ensure repeatable and compliant processes Simplify macro processes with business process management Execute benchmarking to sustain market leadership

Real-world examples demonstrate the successful application of the methodologies, tools, and techniques presented in the book. This results-oriented resource provides you with a detailed roadmap for leading a quality revolution in your organization.

Although the tenn quality does not have a precise and universally accepted definition, its meaning is generally well understood: quality is what makes the difference between success and failure in a competitive world. Given the importance of quality, there is a need for effective quality systems to ensure that the highest quality is achieved within given constraints on human, material or financial resources. This book discusses Intelligent Quality Systems, that is quality systems employing techniques from the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The book focuses on two popular AI techniques, expert or knowledge-based systems and neural networks. Expert systems encapsulate human expertise for solving difficult problems. Neural networks have the ability to learn problem solving from examples. The aim of the book is to illustrate applications of these techniques to the design and operation of effective quality systems. The book comprises 8 chapters. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to quality control and a general discussion of possible AI-based quality systems. Chapter 2 gives technical information on the key AI techniques of expert systems and neural networks. The use of these techniques, singly and in a combined hybrid fonn, to realise intelligent Statistical Process Control (SPC) systems for quality improvement is the subject of Chapters 3-5. Chapter 6 covers experimental design and the Taguchi method which is an effective technique for designing quality into a product or process. The application of expert systems and neural networks to facilitate experimental design is described in this chapter.
