VEXTEC Team Awarded $1.36M to Develop Software that Predicts the Effect of Stress Corrosion Cracking for Navy

VEXTEC Corporation was awarded the prime contract from the US Navy to build software, Corrosion Cracking Maintenance Prediction Software (CCMPS), that predicts the future maintenance needs for aluminum (5000 series) ship structures, based on current damage state and expected usage (ONR-BAA14-003). Team members include researchers from the University of Virginia (UVa) Center for Electrochemical Science and Engineering. In the proposed effort, VEXTEC and consultants will use existing data and models to calibrate the software and consult with the Navy to gather additional data and develop new models. Read more

Tennessee’s Best Kept Secret

“Curiosity is lying in wait for every secret”-Ralph Waldo Emerson. 

Perhaps this was the goal of Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam in June when he returned from his economic development trip to Asia unwilling to share details with the public.  Soon after his departure, a flurry of news reports and blogs surfaced wanting to know why he would not share the details of his agenda with the public. His spokesman David Smith’s response was, “we don’t talk about private meetings.”  This left many to speculate if he was courting another automotive manufacturer to open up shop in the mid-state and what incentives and tax breaks were being offered to sweeten the deal.

The Manufacturing Maintenance Balancing Act

In a 2006 Nielsen study1, auto industry manufacturing executives reported that stopped production costs averaged $22,000 per minute or $1.3 million per hour of downtime. When surveyed, 53% of the manufacturers agreed that predictive and preventative maintenance was the key to reducing this loss of productivity and revenue. So, what is the best practice for determining how to maintain and operate your manufacturing line to optimize productivity and maximize revenue? Read more
