Topic: Improving the Effectiveness of Visual Inspection

Despite the great strides in machine vision and error proofing methodologies, most manufacturing plants still rely on human visual inspection at various points in their process – especially for cosmetic appearance evaluation. Unfortunately, most production and quality engineers see visual inspection as a “black box” and do not know many of the factors of influence on visual inspection effectiveness. This also often leads to a failure to control the impact factors and to overestimate the potential effectiveness of visual inspection. Learn some of the basics of visual inspection and evaluate your quality engineering of this critical point in your process. Open discussion and participation welcome!
