Abstract:  EMC ‘Best Practices’ Workshop

(Time Savers)

Slide Show1
Slide Show2

Operation of a test laboratory or of a particular test is often improved by innovations developed by local staff members.  These innovations are usually small improvements, or of a nature that presentation as an IEEE paper would not be appropriate and as a result may never be known beyond the laboratory where they were developed.  This ‘Best Practices’ workshop presents an opportunity to share these improvements with other members of the EMC community so we all can benefit from them. 

Steve Gladstein and Kimball Williams will present ‘Time Saving’ ideas from their respective laboratories, and invite representatives from other laboratories to join in and share what they have learned or developed over the years.
