NCMS’ Senior Vice President, Rebecca Taylor, is twice featured in Reducing Employee Noise Exposure in Manufacturing Best Practices, Innovative Techniques, and the
Workplace of the Future, a workshop based report hosted by The National Academy of Engineering in Washington, D.C.
The first report, 5.7 The FRITA14 Project: Reducing Noise and Improving Safety describes an innovative method for removing rivets from airplanes using an electro-discharge machining method. The project is called FRITA (Fastener Removal Improvement Technology Adoption), and is said to result in a safer removal process with lower noise levels.
In a second report, 6.3 You Could Eat Off This Floor (But Why?): Tomorrow’s Industrial Spaces, Taylor discusses predictions about future advancements in factories.
