Power Inductors & Transformers Workshop Course Title: Power Inductors & Transformers – In-coming Quality Control (IQC) and Assurance of Outsourced Magnetics: Instructor: Samir Kagalwala, Power Magnetics Consultancy (PMC), San Diego, California 92129, USA Duration: 4 hrs. Overview: Consistently receiving magnetic devices defect free and without performance issues is of paramount importance given that most off-the-shelf and custom designed magnetics are outsourced and off-shored. To that end, the IQC group bears valuable and highly responsible functions in companies. This seminar is designed to introduce power magnetic and their quality parameters in simple terms without detail mathematical formulas and technical jargon to provide functional understanding of the parameters, and to help set and/or improve IQC & Assurance processes for consistently receiving magnetic devices to specified quality level. Target Attendees: Engineers, supervisors and Technicians with magnetics background will refreshingly gain systematic understanding of the quality parameters, factors those affect quality level, review of incoming test control (IQC) and quality assurance procedures and, continuous quality improvement methodology. Quality engineers, supervisors and technicians starting career in magnetics or having a little background would receive a firsthand knowledge of the quality parameters, testing procedures & equipment and quality assurance methodologies. Purchasing personnel will attain needed on-the-job working knowledge of various magnetic devices and their quality parameters to work with suppliers. Sales crew will gain working knowledge of magnetics and their quality parameters to successfully introduce quality magnetics to potential customers. Manufacturing personnel would attain essential background in what customers look for consistently in quality mangetics. To Managers and Executives this valuable seminar would bring the multi-disciplinary functions of magnetics’ quality refreshingly into focus. Attendees Would Learn: - Definition of quality - Importance of Quality and what makes IQC and Assurance even more important in Magnetics outsourcing - Benefits of quality and ‘cost of quality’ - What ‘total quality management’ encompasses & what and how to partner with suppliers - Inductors and Transformers’ quality parameters and factors affecting the quality - Inspection methods - Setting IQC and Assurance parameters and procedures - Continuous quality improvement working with suppliers - Basic statistical tools used (in brief) - Quality governing bodies certifying manufacturers and suppliers (in brief) Course Outline: - Define quality - Quality benefits and ‘cost of quality’ if not maintained - Define Inductors & Transformers used in Power Electronics - Inductors and Transformers basics in context to IQC - Importance of QA in Magnetic devices - Understanding Total Quality Management; Factors that would make up ‘total quality management’ in outsourced magnetic devices - Test parameters and factors affecting quality - Various IQC testing approaches & methods and, selection criterion - IQC and Assurance set up - Test data required of suppliers - Data collection and reporting - Continuous quality improvement process and methodology - Brief description of statistical tools used - Meeting quality prescribed by governing bodies - Q&A Duration of Seminar: 4 hrs About the Instructor: Samir Kagalwala has a unique combined experience in manufacturing and design of Wire Wound Components in Power Electronics.
