Faculty Development Program on Coordinate Metrology and Measurements

Start: 02-01-2019
End: 07-01-2019

A Five Days Faculty Development Program on Coordinate Metrology and Measurements Integrated with Hands on Experience on CMM, Machine Vision, and Roughness measurement, organized by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, SRM Institute of Science and Technology.

About FDP

Coordinate Metrology plays a vital role in measuring components/ products size and form in the manufacturing industries and OEMs. The coordinates are measured by probing the parts using modern equipment like CMM, Laser scanner, Machine Vision, Profile Projector. These machines possess its software which it’s a mathematical surface/element on the acquired coordinates for measurements. There are several strategies to be followed while probing the parts to reduce the error associated with it. This faculty development program provides a platform for young researchers/faculty members to learn the theoretical basis, latest trends/features in equipment from different Industries along with hands-on training on measuring machines like CMM, Portable CMM with laser scanner, Machine Vision, Profile Projector and Surface roughness tester. Researchers who have the thrust to do reverse engineering, uncertainty measurements in CMM and want to analyze the roughness and form error along with its surface defects of machined surface/cast products.

          On 9th and 10th January, the Department of Commerce, Faculty of Science & Humanities had organized a special two day workshop on entrepreneurship development for the students of the department to develop their entrepreneurship competencies. The session was conducted by Mr Shibin Mohamed TK, in which he described various key aspects of entrepreneurship. On the first day, the morning session started with the introduction about entrepreneurship, a video about the importance of initiative and innovation was shown to the audience and then a discussion about 15 types of entrepreneurial competencies was conducted. Mr Shibin explained about the concept of start-up and how an idea leads to business. He explained about various mistakes that might occur in the process of developing an enterprise and about how to deal with the same. In the afternoon session all the students attended a common test to assess the qualities of leadership in themselves and understood about the areas that they should develop.

          On the second day, a brief discussion about solving real time problems that exist in entrepreneurship by innovation was conducted, later all the students were divided in to ten different teams and asked to come up with an innovative start-up idea. Students were given a few hours of time and asked to draw their business plan which shows details about the problems that it solve, threats that are to be faced, competitors, and capital structure and were also asked to explain about their idea as a presentation to the audience. Overall it was an interesting and productive workshop for the students.

          The eleventh edition of National Conference on Mathematical Techniques and Applications (NCMTA-2019) was conducted on 11th and 12th January. The conference started with invocation song and was formally inaugurated by the lighting of the Kuthuvilaku followed by the welcome address given by Dr A. Govindarajan, Professor and Head, Department of Mathematics. He emphasized the need for conducting the conference by stating that it was a platform for budding researchers in the field of Mathematics. He added that it was an opportunity for all staff and researchers to publish their work in Scopus indexed journal source as the extended proceedings of the conference which was likely to be published in Scopus indexed journal, American Institute of Physics (AIP conference series). The presidential address was given by Dr. S. R. S Prabhakaran, Joint Director (Research) SRMIST. In his address, he briefly discussed the need for Mathematics in space study by discussing the use of string theory to determine the injection points in the satellite launch vehicle for the study about Mars. He also mentioned the current status of the university which has developed from an engineering college to a university with Autonomous status.

          Dr Sundarammal Kesavan introduced the chief guest and Alumnus Mr Kritik Abiram Govindan, Director and Chief Executive Officer, Anjana Software Solutions Private Limited, Chennai. In his inaugural address, the chief guest, Mr.Kritik Govindan was proud of being an alumnus of the then SRM Engineering College and he shared his growth in his career from IT personnel to an entrepreneur to the audience. He emphasized the need for developing analytical abilities and the importance of Linear Algebra in the 21st century. This was followed by the release of the conference proceedings. The vote of thanks was given by one of the coordinators Dr P. Sambath.

          There were eight eminent speakers drawn from esteemed institutions like IITs, NITs, Bangalore University, Anna University and BARC Mumbai who enthralled the audience with their presentations ranging from basics to current research in the field of Mathematics.
