Focusing Ideas on What Matters Most

Once a good process to handle ideas is in place, a manufacturer can focus employee ideas on those problems or opportunities most critical to its lean initiative. This Focusing Ideas on What Matters Most program shows how, instead of limiting the number of ideas workers offer, focusing employee thinking actually results in more and better ideas. When managers learn how to aim ideas at specific targets, they gain a powerful competitive weapon. This program is part of an 8 program series based on the book “Ideas Are Free”, and will show you how to unlock the tremendous potential in your lean initiative by tapping into the ideas of your front-line employees. Authors and presenters, Dr. Alan Robinson and Dr. Dean Schroeder studied more than 150 organizations in 17 countries to discover what worked, what didn’t, and why when it comes to promoting ideas.

Concepts of Silicon Surface Micromachining

Dr. Bernhard Jokiel, Jr. - Senior Member of Technical Staff, Sandia National Laboratories, provides this introduction to silicon surface micromachining (SSM) as a method for creating micro-electrical mechanical (MEMS) devices. Viewers will be introduced to the basics of processing SSM devices using Sandia National Laboratory's SUMMiT-V (TM) process including design tools and methodology. Real-world applications for MEMS devices will be presented including on-chip spatial motion control as well as an overview of other commercialized MEMS products and technologies. The viewer will walk away with a clearer view of MEMS technology and a raised awareness of the convergence of macro, meso, micro, and nano fabrication technologies. Several video clips and animations show how these devices create and control motions.
