Reducing Risk in Automation Systems with Ehrhardt Automation's Chad Ramsey

Welcome to podcast #63. Chad Ramsey is the Director of Automation for Ehrhardt Automation Systems. He often talks about #test, #quality, #assembly, #automation, and #processimprovement. Chad is also an expert in automated press integration.

Some of the questions that I ask Chad:

I know it sounds like an obvious question, but why do companies want to reduce risk?

What are the most common ways that manufacturers can reduce the risk in automation?

What can you do with your staff to reduce culture issues, esp if they have never been exposed to automation.

Let’s dig into the specification document. Perhaps you are a manufacturer and have no idea how to start? What do you do?

What is an engineering study, and how do you approach it? Who owns the IP and why/how can this save money for automation?

How much does an engineering study cost?

We have spoken before about project management when it comes to automation. How important is this before the project gets let?

Legal NDAs etc, as long lead time items.

Enjoy the podcast.
