Dakota County Technical College
Course Name:Manufacturing Quality Assurance

 

Course Description: This course will cover multiple manufacturing methodologies (chemical solutions, electro filament, molding, coating, rolling etc. first in the traditional sense and second as these techniques apply to the nanoscale. Quality Assurance (Six Sigma) practices will be discussed with an emphasis on QA and reliability at the nanoscale. Design of experiments, measurements, approaches, data tracking, process improvement and statistical analysis and reporting will be discussed.
