Industry beginning in the 1980's.

This is a corrosion test, called copper chloride acetic acid salt spray.
The negatively charged (-) terminal to which racks or barrel loads are attached in the plating tank;
( also called 'CATHODE' ).
The negative electrode in electrolysis in which the parts are plated. The electrode at which positive ions are discharged. In plating, the parts themselves are cathodes.
Electrocleaning the part with negative voltage. It is also called direct cleaning. Hydrogen is generated and can cause hydrogen embrittlement.
Cavitation is the cleaning action of collapsing bubbles on the surface of a part when using ultrasonic energy.

There are three measures of central tendency: 1.) AVERAGE ( mean ) - the sum of all the measured,
or counted data, divided by the total number of data points. 2.) MODE - the value repeated most
often in raw data, or in the case of the HISTOGRAM, the most common class interval.
3.) MEDIAN - the middle of all the measured or counted data points ( if an even number of data
points, the median will be a fraction ).

A chemical film caused by a reaction between plated zinc or cadmium in a solution of activated chromium;
a film of chromium base or plated metal and oxide is formed.
The process of dipping aluminum in chromic acid to improve paint adhesion.
A binary alloy consisting of nickel and chromium. A few grades of this alloy contain iron.
In English, it is called "Stainless Steel". In German, it is called "Rust Free Alloy". In French, it is called "Non-oxidizing Alloy".

The source of random or natural variation in a process. Common causes-or
'assignable causes ' as they are sometimes called-are inherent in the production process itself.
The probability that a given range of values contains the true value of a parameter.
The upper and lower boundaries of the confidence interval.
For acceptance sampling the probability that a bad lot will be accepted by a given sample plan.
A term applied to the management of processes indicating that quality requirements
standards or goals are being met and that the output of the process is predictable.
This alloy contains 45% nickel and 54% copper, used in thermocouples.
The deposition of metal without the use of current. The parts are barrel-rotated in a bath containing metal ions. As the parts come in contact/impact with the metal ions, they get plated.
Control Charts are line graphs specially used to track the trend or performance of an on-going process.
This is accomplished by observing how the viability within the process causes thetrend line to fluctuate
within a pair of statistically calculated limits. There are two types of Control Charts: _ X, R CHART
and X, MOVING RANGE CHART which are VARIABLES CONTROL CHARTS. p CHART, np CHART,
c CHART, and u CHART which are ATTRIBUTE CONTROLS CHART.
Control limits, which are statistically derived, are not to be confused with specification limits.
Ideally, control limits are well within the specifications so there is confidence in the reliability
of the process. If the specifications are very close to or within the control limits, then the process
is indicating that it may not be reliable in achieving the customers' needs.
Corrosion is a chemical process by which a metal is chemically oxidized and attacked.
Cost Estimation is a technique for determining the dollar or currency impact of problems and potential
improvements. There are two approaches to estimating costs: The 'Bottom Up Approach' and the
'Top-Down Approach.' It is not necessary to have a precise and detailed accounting data in order to
get a general idea of the financial impact of a problem or issue; you need to make some assumptions
and verify them as data is collected.
A electrical charge passing through or plating cell at a current of one ampere for one second.
An electrolytic standard cell arranged in series with a plating cell to measure the actual current flow. From the weight of
the deposits in both cells, the cathode efficiency can be calculated.
The ability of plating solution to deposit on very low current density areas. A high throwing power bath ususally
has high covering power.

The plating current per unit area being plated. The current density is expressed as ampere per square foot or ampere per square decimeter.
The percentage of current actually used in deposition at the cathode or in dissolving the anode. The remaining current generates either hydrogen at the cathode, oxygen at the anode or other side reactions at either electrode.

COMPANYWIDE QUALITY CONTROL is an expression used widely in Japan,
CWQC means the application of quality principles to all processes in a company
and the involvement of all employees at all levels in the quality-improvement process.
The concepts of continuos improvement and customer satisfaction are also embedded
in the approach. CWQC is the equivalent of 'total quality management ( TQM )' in the
United States, where the term 'management' has the same meaning as 'control' in Japan.

The amount of time it takes to complete a particular task. Shortening the cycle
times of critical functions within a company is usually a source of competitive
advantage and a key quality-improvement objective.
