In a series of three interactive exercises, learners explore the relationship between process cycle time and defect detection, and between process cyle time and smaller batch sizes. The techniques of lean/JIT are applied to achieve the continuous improvement (kaizen) goal of reducing inventory by pursuing one-piece flow.
Charging Time Constants of an RC Circuit (Screencast)
In this animated object, students view an explanation of how current, voltage, and the charge on a capacitor of a series RC circuit change during five time constants. A short quiz completes the activity.
