Implementation of Six Sigma Methodologies in Automotive Wiring Harnesses Manufacturing Companies. “ABC” Plant Case Study[ ]


The Six Sigma’s problem solving methodology DMAIC is one of several techniques used to improve product quality. This paper demonstrates the empirical application of DMAIC methodology to reduce product defects though investigation of root causes of major defects and provide a solution to reduce/eliminate these defects. The analysis from employing Six Sigma indicated that variation in contact crimp height represents 86% of total defects in cable cutting and crimping process. In particular, affinity and cause and effect diagrams have been used to identify potential variation sources.

Experimental Investigation of Parabolic Trough Solar Collector using Receiver with Two-Gate Helical Screw-Tape[ ]


A parabolic trough solar collector (PTC), with two-gat helical screw-tape inserted into an evacuated tube (ET) receiver, is designed and manufactured. The novel helps to increase the heat transfer rate by using the two-pass fluid flow and also by generating a swirl flow. The experiments are performed at flow rates of 10, 12, 16, 20, and 25 L/h. Results showed that the maximum daily efficiency is 69% at water flow rate of 20 L/h while the minimum daily efficiency is 59.5% at water flow rate of 16 L/h. The heat removal factor and the overall heat loss coefficient of the system are 0.843 and 9.64 W/m² °C, respectively. It is also found that the helical screw core enhances the solar collector performance during cloudy periods by compensating the effect of the large instantaneous variation of the incident solar radiation where it works as a thermal storage element.

Optimal Helical Spring Design for a P-Pod Using Chaotic Backtrack Search Algorithm[ ]


A critical component of the ejection mechanism in a P-Pod is the helical compression spring. The helical spring ensures safe ejection at moderate velocities and also prevent jamming of the satellite within the P-Pod. To perform this function, the helical spring requires adequate stored energy during the ejection process. In this paper the design of the helical spring considered the mean coil diameter D, the wire diameter d and the spring index C. as variables to be optimized within specified constraints. The optimization problem entails the maximization of the stored strain energy in the helical compression spring. Optimal solutions are found using the Chaotic Backtrack Search Algorithm (CBSA).

A Study of eHealth: Challenges and Opportunities[ ]


eHealth is one of the means or processes to provide and/or seek healthcare information. This concept has been receiving wide acceptance in both the healthcare field and among healthcare consumers and stakeholders. Many businesses have been leveraging e-based (electronic based) tools/applications across many fields, and eHealth, in particular, has recently been gaining popularity. With its distinct advantage of easy access, synchronous and asynchronous nature, eHealth has been easy to use, cost-effective, and efficient solution for providing several health care related services independent of location and time. Along with the many benefits of eHealth, there are several challenges that need to be solved to make eHealth a better means to seek and/or provide healthcare. This paper presents the background, literature review, current usage, challenges, and opportunities of eHealth. The research findings from paper will be useful for both healthcare providers and healthcare consumers to improve and optimize their usage of eHealth. To understand the current usage of eHealth, National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) data from years 2015, 2016, and 2017 are studied in this research.

HLA-DR as a critical player in Vitamin-D associated Multiple sclerosis pathogenesis[ ]


Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammation resulting in demyelination and progressional loss of brain cells. So far vitamin D has been known as the regulator of calcium homeostasis, but through the course of recent years, it has emerged as a potential immune modulator, especially in autoimmune disorders like MS. Vitamin D acts on Class II MHC region HLA-DRB1, the allelic variants of which serve as strong genetic risk for MS. Hence it can be hypothesized that MS can be the result of interaction between certain genetic and environmental factors. This study includes the effect of these two factors on MS in consideration with MS model.

Self Sustanenace of Senior citizens of India: A CSR INITIATIVE[ ]


With less income or little income, old age has become a great deal to worry in bigger cities of India. Even though, government supports the senior citizens with old age pensions, it only helps to cover basic living expenses. Instead of increasing the load on government, let these senior citizens relocate to villages and let government build old age homes in these villages with civic amenities. This will not only improve the living standards of senior citizens of india but also enable them to lend soft loans.
