Metrics

“A performance metric is a measure of an organization's activities and performance”, ….WikipediA

Metrics – Quantifiable dimensions of performance and cost of the system that your project addresses.

Eg;

Weight (Newtons)

Size (l,h,w) cm;cm3

Cycle Time (seconds)

Repeatability Coefficient :

a precision measure which represents the value below which the absolute difference between two repeated test results may be expected to lie with a probability of 95%.

Availability (%)= MTBF/MTBF+MTTR

All Engineering Faculty, Staff and Students are invited.

Come have some lunch and learn about the Student Machine Shop.

Food, fun, door prizes!

Fine Print

Please note that the terms “food”, “fun” and “door prizes” are all subjective terms. In this case, the term “food” is defined as hot dogs and fixins, baked beans, jalapeno cornbread, potato salad, cole slaw, chocolate chip cookies and cold beverages. “Fun” is a completely subjective term and is therefore left to your own definition. "Door Prizes” may consist of old wrenches or tools that have no practical use other than as a paperweight. The decision of the judges is final in all contests and games of chance. No purchase necessary. During the Open House, the shop rules concerning safety glasses and proper shop attire will be waived. Your mileage may vary.
