In this interactive object, learners follow the steps required for the Ziegler-Nichols Continuous Cycling method. The process identification procedure is performed, calculations are made, and the proper PID values are programmed into the controller.
In this animated and interactive object, learners follow steps to perform the process identification procedure for the Ziegler-Nichols Continuous Cycling Tuning Method. A short quiz completes the activity.
Learners read about the different uses of the word "data." They will test themselves on examples of data that is singular, plural, qualitative, quantitative, nominal, ordinal, interval, rational, discrete, or continuous.
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.
