    l   Electronic Communications
    l   Products & Services


                 IEEE Central Texas Section
        SC05 Recommendations
l   Primary delegates from over 240 IEEE Sections met
    on 17 October 2005 to prioritize the
    recommendations that were developed in the Region
    & Issue Caucuses. The top ten recommendations are
    identified in priority order with the remaining
    recommendations being shown for your information.
l   The appropriate IEEE organizational units will be
    assigned the responsibility of responding to each
    recommendation. Progress reports on these items
    will be provided on a regular basis.



                  IEEE Central Texas Section
          SC05 Recommendations
l   Increase membership value. Include as part of the basic
    membership free limited access to online publications, products
    and services or one free society membership with increased
    benefits according to membership grade, volunteer
    contributions, and years of membership. To be implemented by
    2007 membership year.
l   Develop web-based interactive seminars, downloadable and on-
    line electronic presentations on technical subjects including an
    exam which, when completed will provide CEU/PDH credit for
    participants. Available to members at minimal cost; students,
    unemployed, life members, and presentations at sections and
    chapters at no cost. 50 CEU awardable tutorials - Q32006.




                      IEEE Central Texas Section
        SC05 Recommendations
l   Provide incentives to companies encouraging
    employee involvement in the IEEE. Reach out to
    companies showing the value of IEEE membership
    (Provides better understanding of current trends in
    the industry, networking, professional development,
    and continuing education).
l   IEEE should provide to organizational units and
    members new tools that demonstrate the value of
    IEEE membership, both in terms of the advantages to
    employers and the benefits received by members; for
    implementation by 4Q2006.


                  IEEE Central Texas Section
          SC05 Recommendations

l   Update, expand, and improve the IEEE Job
    Site to:
    l   Expand marketing world-wide, visible to both large
        and small employers
    l   Develop materials to create more effective job
        searches
    l   Provide on-line guidance/training for unemployed
        and underemployed members
    l   Make it easier for employers using the Job Site


                    IEEE Central Texas Section
         SC05 Recommendations
l   The IEEE Board of Directors shall direct the Regional
    Activities Board to find means to increase awareness
    of the value and expertise that IEEE members add to
    society, but particularly to their employers.
l   Further develop interactive training toward specific
    volunteer functions. There shall be quick-start, basic,
    and advanced training that is easily updatable.
    Feedback shall be collected on the training
    effectiveness. Entity leaders upon assumption of
    office will be notified via an e-mail of training
    availability. Pilot - 4Q06, Training - 4Q07


                   IEEE Central Texas Section
         SC05 Recommendations
l   Often, we lose the expertise of past leaders while
    new leaders end up re-inventing the wheel. Records
    retention requirements are ill-defined. IEEE shall
    institute guidelines, mechanisms, and resources for
    capturing, archiving, searching, and delivering
    collective records, knowledge, and wisdom of past
    and current volunteer leaders. Guidelines and pilot -
    4Q06.
l   To recruit and retain members, IEEE should
    automatically provide recognition for years of
    membership in the form of a progressive series of
    benefits; for implementation by 4Q2006.

                   IEEE Central Texas Section
       SC05 Recommendations

l   Create IEEE Digital Video Library in
    2007 - Provide web-based continuing
    education that captures presentations in
    conferences, societies, sections, and
    chapters and provides virtual speakers
    for other sections and society meetings.
    Presentations would provide valuable
    training courses to all IEEE members.

          Region 5 Robotics Competition

Norman Oklahoma 2004                    Denver 2005
                                        The 2005 competition was a mock up of an automated
                                        warehouse. Each team is to build a robot that will take
                                        commands from a dispatcher unit regarding the location of
                                        a stored object and where that container is to be moved.
                                        The robot must have a wireless communication circuit to
                                        receive commands; a drive system for motion; a
                                        navigation system to move from one room to another;
                                        and a manipulator to handle the container.

                                       dispatch using wireless communications has been
                                       eliminated. However, the robot must recognize color.

    encouraged to submit papers for this Region 5 Conference.

l   The Students like attending and participating in IEEE Conferences.
    Announcement of Conferences and availability of free admissions needs to be
    made with sufficient lead time.

l   Planning to end tenure as Student Liaison with the conclusion of the Region 5
    Conference in San Antonio. Several suitable successors have been identified.

l   January 18, 2005          Global Compliance, Ted Hashke, TUV Rheinland of North America
     l   This month, Ted leads us through the pitfalls of trying to comply with all the various rules/regulations that apply to many
         different types of equipment and machinery being sold world-wide. If you have been through this process at least once you
         understand how cryptic the regulations can be and how “dynamic” of an environment this is. Things are always changing,
         and that can leave you trying to comply with yesterday’s rules if you’re not careful!

l    February 15, 2005 Product Safety Fire Investigations, Daniece Carpenter, WW Regulatory
    Investigations & Globalization, Dell Inc.
     l   This month, Daniece talks to us about her experiences in conducting fire investigations – a GREAT topic under the product
         safety banner! Hopefully she has been involved in very few of these investigations, but has learned some good pointers for
         us if we are ever asked to look into this type of a problem. I’m sure she will also favor us with some pretty good “war
         stories” from her experiences in this regard.

l   March 15, 2005       Update on Safety Standards in Taiwan, Daniece Carpenter, WW Regulatory
    Investigations & Globalization, Dell Inc.
     l   This month, Daniece tells us about the changes in product safety standards that are currently taking place in Taiwan. And
         she should know, if anyone does, just how that affects products that are marketed and sold in Taiwan. In this global
         economy it is always a good idea to know what you’re getting into when you propose to do business in specific world
         locations. Daniece has agreed to share some of that knowledge with us in the form of this update on the safety standards
         being considered/implemented in Taiwan.

l    April 19, 2005       Power Cords 101 - An overview of requirements for power cords in various
    countries”, by Jay Voigt, Dell Enterprise Regulatory Engineer
     l   This month, Jay Voigt will share his knowledge of the various ways to get power to electronic equipment and peripherals in
         different parts of the world. This may seem like an easy task at first glance. However, those of you who have walked this
         path know from experience just how complicated it can be to try to match up the right cord to the right power source and
         provide the correct input power conditioning and distribution systems in the affected equipment. I’m sure Jay will have a
         few “words to the wise” concerning the best ways to get this done properly. Join us and get “plugged in” to the right
         approach in the seemingly endless cordage combinations worldwide!

                                             Meetings
l   May 17, 2005             An Overview of Current RFID Technology, by Keith Hendrickson, Dell Inc.
     l   Do you realize that soon your shopping cart will be telling you where to find the items in a store since it “knows” what you
         normally buy when you’re there? How about your passport carrying all your personal information on a tiny embedded
         device inside the cover of the passport? Or having a small device implanted in your ear lobe that contains this information
         and can be read as you pass through an airport gate? It’s now in the realm of possibility due to the current state-of-the-art
         RFID technology. On Tuesday night, May 17th, we’ll hear more about what to expect in applications of RFID when Keith
         Hendrickson fills us in on current realities and future possibilities.

l   June 19, 2005          Movie Night AKA “Selected Safety Shorts”
     l   Do you remember back a few years ago when we enjoyed an evening of “selected short” movie features concerning
         different aspects of the product safety profession? Well, you’re in for that treat again! We’ve obtained several short films
         that are sure to be “Thrillers”. They’ll leave you on the edge of your seat (which, by the way, has it’s own safety standards
         to live up to)! So join us for a night full of fun, entertainment, popcorn and some might say “enlightenment”. It’ll be
         a blast, so be there or miss this installment of our own “Movie Night”.

l   July 19, 2005        Product Safety on the Web – Sources of Information and Discussion
     l   Each of us has our own “first choice” website where we find product safety information on the Internet or in news groups.
         However, the vastness of the Internet provides many other resources for information on Product Safety and related topics
         – some reputable, and others possibly misleading. Tonight’s meeting should give you an idea of where people go to find
         the “good stuff” and which sites to avoid. Join us for the evening and tell us your favorite Internet spots for Product Safety
         related information, or for reference (like conversion tables, mathematical formulae, statistical analysis or controls,
         engineering design, etc.). It should be a great night for sharing our combined experiences on “the web”.

l   August 16, 2005 Product Safety 101 – A Basic Primer
     l   Once in awhile it’s good to get a refresher on the “basics” of any given topic. Since Product Safety is what we’re about, it’s
         time once again to take a look at the simple basics that we deal with on a daily basis. We hope those of you that don’t
         work directly in the product safety field will find this basic primer interesting and informative. Those of you who DO work
         directly in support of safe product design might find that a few things have changed since you made your initial product
         submission to a regulatory compliance agency. We’re going to touch on several aspects of this discipline including
         labeling and standards. But there’s also another side of this effort: the manufacturer of your product. You rely on them to
         consistently build the product the way it was certified. We’ll show you the things to look for in their processes that support
         and maintain your product’s certification.

                                       Meetings
l    September 20, 2005         The Hot, Flaming Oil Test – A spectacular, yet seldom used safety
    test, by Nathan Arldt
     l   Even though this product safety test is almost never used anymore (due in part to the use of design
         inputs from folks like us!), it is still used periodically when deemed necessary by product safety
         agencies. The issue is, of course, to make sure that you have an adequate fire enclosure around the
         completed product. One that won’t become the source of ignition for other nearby flammable items.
         The test itself is actually fairly dangerous, so every effort is made to work with the client to design a
         proper enclosure. Nathan Arldt will fill you in on the entire “ordeal by fire” and may have a film
         showing the test underway. It is a rather eye-popping test, so be prepared.

l   October 18, 2005      Hazard Considerations For The Aircraft Environment by Jack Burns
    and Sam Davis,
    plus a synopsis of the 2005 Product Safety Engineering Symposium
     l   This month we are favored with a double feature, with presentations covering two items of interest to
         us. The first is a presentation about the design and use of power adaptors. These are the
         troublesome little “black boxes” that plug into an airplane’s potentially unfiltered, though somewhat
         regulated, AC power outlets for personal electronics that use 120VAC. There is more than meets the
         eye in these little boxes!

l    December 6, 2005 (Combination November/December meeting)               Choosing a NRTL, by
    Jim Dolphin, Director of Product Safety Certifications, Professional Testing Inc.
     l   Many of you already know Jim Dolphin and have enjoyed his presentations to our group. Possibly
         you’ve even worked with him to get one of your products through the product safety test process at
         PTI. Either way, I’m sure that you have a healthy respect for Jim’s expertise in this area. He has over
         thirty years of product safety certifications experience. Prior to joining PTI, Jim worked for UL,
         MD/TOTCO, BancTec, and Marconi Communications. This month he favors us with a a brief
         summary of OSHA's NRTL, or Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory program. Different
         mathematical models for choosing a NRTL will then be presented and discussed.
