Problem-Solving Tools Applied to Microfabrication (Recorded March 28, 2013)
In this webinar, attendees were presented with a real life example of a microsystems manufacturing problem. Attendees used the tools of problem-solving, Statistical Process Control and Design of Experiments to solve the problem and recommend next steps. The link to the recorded webinar can be found below.
This recorded webinar is now available online.
