bowman added a comment to T7263: Need a process to help calibration with things such as wire crimps and similar issues.

We will continue to improve quality processes in the goal to not have any units that need "fixing" at the calibration station.
(It will always be an on-going process of effort to constantly improve our productivity, but we are all going to work towards the goal to not have any "fixes")

We will have some tools over here that we can address and correct the small "quick fix" issues, ie bad crimp or wired pulled out, blown fuse etc.
Large problems like replacing a boards and lcd's. whole box failures and such, it will be faster just to swap the control box with another one and then red tag the defective one and send back for rework.
We should not have to stock many spare parts here.

@Steven @oliver @wolffchadd Can we get / make sure that the rest of the final people trained/certified to take this over from MER 100% That way we have plenty of people that can perform this function.

@kent we also need to have the fields to track if/when a printer that is already calibrated and then gets pulled for secondary inspection by MER. (ie when training new cal techs)
Can use the same layout as the Mini log and then add the new fields that MER and R&R want to track.

NOTE: We will have to track down the calibration MO that Mike R. had in his possession to have it cancelled and re-procured when the BoM is changed.

bowman added a comment to T5659: PP-IS0098 - Correct HD-MS0060 to HD-MS0158.

@DaniAO OCA shows that these were completed and produced on 2/8
For some reason, the BoM did not get corrected to change the HD-MS0060 to HD-MS0158's before it got produced in OCA.
Mike and I verified that the drawing was correct and that the correct inserts HD-MS0158's were used.
Just need to update the BoM to use the correct insert number.
Since the MO got produced in oca before the bom got change and a new mo procured, Inventory Control will have to
make an adjustment to the inserts (neg adjust hd-ms0060 qty -160 and then pos adjust hd-ms0158 qty +160

bowman added a comment to T5627: ecostrip blades excessive wear with solid core wire.

@logan, using the 9300 sound great. Lets go ahead and pull out and set it up to use for solid core only. Lets put a sign on it stating to use for solid core ONLY.
After talking with @guadalupe , she is going to set up a spot on top of the bench (same bench you mentioned) to place the cutter and then it can be pulled forward to use and then slid back when not in use.
Since we only use the one solid core wire, we can schedule production so that it will only require wires to be cut a couple times a month.

Sounds Good! I will add a couple of extra table tops to the equipment list. Like you said, setting up just the table tops will take up much less room for storing and then we can just swap out using the same workbench.

bowman added a comment to T5492: Make taz 6 frame squaring fixture using taz 7 type design..

@logan @kent for now, I think we will only need to purchase 1 more table to set up for TAZ6 frames. I will take care of ordering that bench by putting it with the equipment needed for re-tool of production.
@kent Do you think we will need to have an extra table set up for hot swap? Maybe we will be fine just having an extra set of the hardware available on hand. We can get another table/board pretty quickly and
build another setup if we ever need to replace one.

bowman reassigned T3043: LCD bracket installation sometimes destroys printed mount from tomc to wolffchadd.

Worked on this issue with @kent and it was determined that we could fix with a re-design, however, since the product is released, we can look into it more for a later rev if needed.
In the mean time, we can correct most of the problems by making sure that the parts are aligned properly during installation at final assembly. We have had several new people learning mini final assembly recently.
Re-assigning this ticket to @wolffchadd to work with Kent/MER and provide training to all final assembly personnel. As well as make sure that the Ohai instruction set documents this.
