38 MMS March 2017 COMPETING IDEAS Columnist indicator's frequency of use decreases in the future. A final example involves a bar-feed attachment that is only used on a few jobs that run every two to three weeks, on average. The attachment is difficult to put on the machine and actually was designed to stay on once attached. It can easily be moved out of the way when not needed. In this case, some forethought and design ingenuity has actually resolved the POUS vs. 5S conflict for us, as the attachment is where it is needed when it is needed, but out of the way when it is not needed. As we all know, in business, things are rarely "always" or "never." POUS and 5S are both proven concepts that can reduce waste and improve operational effectiveness. In those cases where POUS and 5S appear to be in conflict, creating some guidelines will help you decide which will work best for you and your operation. Stylus length is marked on the dial face, and a wide array of styli and ruby tips allows for probing of many applications. A glare-free flat crystal allows for easy reading of graduations. Hard, smudge-resistant coatings on the crystal prevent scratches and contamination. Data from a 2-million cycle test shows that Mitutoyo indicators outperform the competition. Choose from a variety of dial positions: horizontal, horizontal with a 20-degree tilted face, vertical and parallel.
