What will you learn in the class?
As counterfeit components, EEE parts, materials and products continue to impact the NASA, DOE and DoD Supply Chain, a more proactive and innovative approach is necessary to reduce costs for NASA, the general public and the Warfighter.
As we have seen over the years, the online Suspect Counterfeit Training is not effective as the material does not change. The counterfeit market as a result is booming and the consumer or Federal worker has not been provided with up-to-date tools to identify and mitigate the growing threat for US small business while impacting the profit margins of big business while compromising the Warfighter!
For the Incoming Inspection Interactive Awareness Training, you will learn beyond "Visual Inspection" how to identify, mitigate and avoid suspect counterfeit material, packaging and parts by the unique "hands on" approach by RMV leadership.
You will quickly learn that "your first line of defense" in the detection of non-compliant and suspect counterfeit parts is the outer packaging. Sounds simple but not practiced.
For example, a simple corrugated container can tell you quite a bit about the country of origin, the substrate can also lend "traceability" to the product. The electronic part that contains a ROHS marker and not a UL or CE marker can be a dead giveaway. Use of an inexpensive mini-microscope is an excellent "first pass" identifier before procuring expensive component testing.
This extra step may be a real cost savings to your Quality Program by elimination of unnecessary component testing by weeding out the suspect parts before performing in-house or 3rd party system level testing.
