The Quality of Supplied Parts and Their Influence on Manufactured Quality in Serial Production

Abstract

The quality of manufactured products itself has long been playing significant role in nowadays business as well as in customers satisfaction with all kinds of products and services provided. Since all of us face to the poor quality results on daily basis, it is necessary to deploy an appropriate set of quality tools in order to improve the total quality level. The quality level of supplied parts in terms of the product quality including the design, development, and manufacturing process has significantly been influencing the quality results of serial production. The contemporary business philosophy for supplier's selection uses merely the only criterion, the lowest price. The article describes some problems stemming from this philosophy and practice, determines a systemic approach and proposes a solution in order to improve supplier's reliability in terms of quality of supplied parts and customer satisfaction.

Analysis of the opportunities to implement the BIZ-TRIZ mechanism

studies (orders for SMEs) and the evaluation of the implementation, which will enable the development of new cooperation models for universities and businesses, the evaluation of the usefulness of inventive methods in the realities of the Polish economy and lessons learned that stemmed from the effects of the implementation of BIZ-TRIZ. The implementation of the mechanism will also demonstrate to entrepreneurs that it is worth investing in research services provided by the scientific sector and that innovations can even be introduced in small companies.

Identification of prospective industrial clusters in Slovakia

& Letková, 2011 ). The shift–share analysis quantified the total change in employment and split it into national, industrial and regional effect ( Karlsson, 1999 ; Matáková & Stejskal, 2012 ). The limited validity in time is the main disadvantage of such a method ( Yasin et al., 2004 ), as well as its predictability, which is close to none. It may only have some theoretical contribution when applied without considering the regional situation. The identified effects stem from the following relations: (1) N S i r t = E i r t - 1 x

Cutting of Woody Shrubs at Melioration Objects by a Multi-Rotor Mower With Trapezoidal Knives

Abstract

The object of the research is a technological process and technical means of cutting woody shrubs at melioration objects. The subject of the research consists of regularities and methods of execution of the process of cutting woody shrubs at melioration objects by a multirotor mower with trapezoidal knives. The aim of the research is to increase efficiency of cutting shrubs at melioration objects by applying a multi-rotor mower with trapezoidal knives. We have obtained analy tical dependences in order to determine the angle of diversion of a knife from the radial position during contact with the stem, and to calculate the reaction in the joint “knife-fixing bolt” depending on the parameters of a knife and rotor, and the distance from the centre of the knife fixing bolt to the point of contact of a knife and stem, which provides minimal impact load on the knife fixing bolt during cutting woody shrubs. We have also developed a mathematical model of the process of cutting shrubs by a multi-rotor mover with trapezoidal knives, and methods of determination of the main parameters and regimes of work of the mower cutting apparatus for cutting shrubs at melioration objects, which contain a monogram, based on the use of theoretical-experimental dependences.
