Caliper and Vernier

Figure extra (a) A caliper gage with a vernier. (b) A vernier, reading 27.00 + 0.42 = 27.42 mm, or 1.000 + 0.050 + 0.029 = 1.079 in. We arrive at the last measurement as follows: First note that the two lowest scales pertain to the inch units. We next note that the 0 (zero) mark on the lower scale has passed the 1-in. mark on the upper scale. Thus, we first record a distance of 1.000 in. Next we note that the 0 mark has also passed the first (shorter) mark on the upper scale. Noting that the 1-in. distance on the upper scale is divided into 20 segments, we hve passed a distance of 0.050 in. Finally note that the marks on the two scales coincide at the number 29. Each of the 50 graduations on the lower scale indicates 0.001 in., so we also have 0.029 in. Thus the total dimension is 1.000 in. + 0.050 in. + 0.029 in. = 1.079 in.

TABLE extra 1. Create constancy of purpose toward improvement of product and service. 2. Adopt the new philosophy. Cease dependence on mass inspection to achieve quality. 3. 4. End the practice of awarding business on the basis of price tag. Improve constantly and forever the system of production and service, to 5. improve quality and productivity, and thus constantly decrease cost. Institute training on the job. 6. 7. Institute leadership (as opposed to supervision). Drive out fear so that everyone can work effectively. 8. 9. Break down barriers between departments. Eliminate slogans, exhortations and targets for zero defects and new levels of 10. productivity 11. Eliminate quotas and management by numbers, numerical goals. Substitute leadership. 12. Remove barriers that rob the hourly worker of pride of workmanship. Institute a vigorous program of education and self-improvement. 13. 14. Put everybody in the company to work to accomplish the transformation
