Business Transformation
(Explanation of Graph)

Business TransformationGiven the criticality and current state of negative industrial impact throughout the world, it is vital that necessary attention be focused on essential investments to realize optimal financial return. For any company to achieve optimal return on future investment, it is believed that a Business Transformation is required.

This visual graph represents the components of a Business Transformation for which industry must be educated to integrate within each mechanical technology company. This Business Transformation represents three key components:  1) Dimensional Management, 2) Physical to Functional Hierarchies and 3) Uncertainty Management. Dimensional Management represents the overall management of physical geometry at the component and assembly level. Physical to Functional Hierarchies represent the understanding and comparison of physical geometric characteristics that directly impact functional parameters, which allows the understanding level of contribution for each physical parameter. Uncertainty Management is a system of analysis, which allows understanding the level of contribution for all physical and functional parameters of interest.

Also included in this visual graph are key Technology Challenges/Constraints for which industry currently faces, along with key Business Challenges/Constraints each is burdened with. The end result of both types of challenges and constraints is the financial necessity to accept and drive this Business Transformation. Internalizing this transformation will result in an overall Quality Transformation, and thus a Formula for Quality. This transformation will apply to all technical departments and must become a way of life. The foundation of this transformation is a solid training initiative of Precision GD&T, allowing everyone involved to have foundational competencies at appropriate levels to efficiently perform their job function. Given the broad array of job categories, it is critical to understand the appropriate level of training for each individual to ensure their targeted investments reap optimum results and maximum return.
