    yessssss :five: and the fall of the Berlin Wall, it's sad really cos for the coursework we only did Russia from 1800 to 1917 but it would have been interesting to do the USSR and stuff and would have helped with the Germany side :emo:

    I think part of this is all in the mind.
    For instance i was thinking i hope the question isnt on the position of women and then when i thought about it i realised that i actually know a lot of stuff about women in German society throughout the years. Just need to have more confidence with my own knowledge

    :gfight:

    Target for today:

    Get the Weimar Republic finished then go onto Nazi Germany, even though they kind of overlap cos of Hitler's rise to power

    Thank you lovely :hugs::lovehug:


    -----------------
    Gonna put this here to remind me to look over it the most cos it's the area i find the hardest:
    Spoiler:
    Show


    Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM):
    QRM = the organisation of production to manufacture to customer demand rather than manufacturing products to stock
    -Consumer demand changes rapidly so many industries can’t manufacture items to go into storage before sale (might not sell)
    -Manufacturer’s often ‘Make to Order’
    -E.g. Jaguar = every vehicle has a customer before being made, avoids expensive storage however customer has to wait longer for product
    -QRM systems reduce this waiting time

    Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS):
    EPOS =The use of barcode readers to send sales data to manufacturers and distributors in order to maintain stock levels
    -Bar-coded products laser scanned at point of sale, data sent to distributor and manufacturer
    -Enables sale of item to be registered which means it can restocked
    -Allows manufacturers to produce items ‘just in time’ rather than storing them
    -Essential point of QRM

    Just in Time (JIT):
    JIT = organisation of production so customers get their orders just in time. Avoids stocking materials and finished products
    -Manufacturers organise their suppliers to deliver materials and components just in time for when they are needed in production
    -Avoids large amounts of stock and cluttering of assembly lines
    -In practise Jaguar for example may have enough stock for one shift as opposed to one car
    -Responsibility of delivering materials and parts on supplier

    Kanbans:
    -Control of stock levels uses computer systems
    -Parts for car manufacture delivered in containers then placed at the work cell where they are needed
    -Each container labelled with barcode
    -Container labelled with barcode identifying the part and the quantity contained within
    -Inside the container is a card with the same information (a ‘Kaban’)
    -As operator uses up items in container card is placed in a chute which goes into a box for the store workers
    -When kabans collected they are scanned using electronic data exchange/interchange (EDE/EDI)
    -Parts automatically re-ordered from supplier

    Sequencing:
    -Essential part of JIT, refinement that means the parts are not only delivered at the right time but to the right workstation
    -Once parts arrive at factory, need to go to individual work cells at the right time
    -Controlled by computers

    Master Production Schedules (MPS):
    MPS = scheduled system used to organise the work to be completed within a set time period (sets the quantity of each product to be made in the time period)
    -In car industry done using an ‘order based schedule’ as cars are made to individual order
    -Cars would be assembled in order priority
    -This requires materials requirements planning (MRP) (a software system for work cells to order materials and components from suppliers when they are required)

    Telematics:
    -System used to electronically track a product from receipt of order through to assembly and dispatch
    -In car industry customer orders converted to data programmed into a ‘black box’
    -Then placed on a car as it goes through each part of assembly
    -Progress of the order can then be tracked and that it matches customer order

    Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS):
    FMS = organising production equipment to allow manufacture of a variety of different products as opposed to a single item
    -Useful for changes in consumer demand or for items made in batches rather than products with a constant steady demand e.g. toothpaste tubes and toilet roll
    -Press formers, CNC laser cutters, punches, lathes and milling machines and robot arms

    FMS (Flexible Manufacturing) Cells:
    -Organising production into cells of machines performing different tasks
    -Laid out in a U shape to enable one person to operate several machines
    -May include a buffer store (temporary store used to hold partially completed work) as some machines work faster than others
    -Host computer needed to control sequencing of jobs, monitor status and performance of each machine in cell
    -Host computer will download CNC part programs according to customer orders
    -Possible to have several programmes running and different products can be made in the same cell

    Computer-Integrated Manufacture (CIM):
    CIM = the use of computers to link together business and manufacturing data and the control of production in order to make production more efficient
    -Best practise in modern manufacturing is ‘concurrent manufacturing’ (where all groups are involved in the design and development of a product throughout the whole project)
    -Computers used to assist in this
    -Marketing data, specification, designs and development drawings shared over a centrally controlled database
    -As each member works on the project the database is updated
    -Leads to faster development of the product
    -CIM can also involve the central control of computer systems that organise production scheduling i.e. management of stock levels

    The night of the long knives was in 1934 NOT 1942 (why on earth would it be in 1942 during WWII :facepalm:)

    then the British night of the long knives was in 1962

    too many knives lol

    From memory:

    Tempering:
    To make steel tough in certain places, heating then controlled cooling. Used on chisels etc where the handles have to be tough compared to the blade which will be hard

    Case hardening:
    Soaking steel in carbon granules then heating. Steel absorbs the carbon on the area applied and it becomes harder and more brittle on these areas due to the increased carbon content. Used on train wheels, have to be tough in the middle with a hard exterior (to withstand use on a track)

    Annealing:
    Done to reverse work hardening where the metal becomes brittle due to being bent. Metal heated to from 1/3rd to 1/2 of it's melting point then cooled. Helps make the metal more malleable and easier to work. Aluminium as a case study

    Tanalising:
    Wood placed in a vacuum cylinder. Wood treatment sprayed into the cylinder, vacuum within the wood helps suck the treatment into the wood pores. Hydraulic pressure applied to the outside of wood to help the treatment soak in


    hopefully those are right cos kept getting confused between them all
