NOVEMBER 2020 I PCB007 MAGAZINE 99 change. An example of an attachment would be the quality policy. Work instructions would follow the same convention, except the standard requirement number would be replaced with the depart- ment the work instruction controls. For exam- ple, WI-DRL would be the work instruction for the drilling department, WI-DRL-1 would be the first form for this work instruction. Conclusion The KISS Principle will get you started on the simplification of your QMS documenta- tion. Part 2 will continue with additional rec- ommendations.

The "F" stands for "form," the "930" ties this form to the pro- cedure "P-930 Management Review," and the "1" designates this as the first form under this procedure. Attachments use an "A" in place of the "F" in the numbering convention. A Note About Forms, Attachments, and Records This is often a point of confusion. A form is any document that requires data to be added to it, such as a log, checklist, or inspection re- port. It is a form when blank and becomes a record once data has been added. A form does not change revision after data has been add- ed; it only changes revision when the "struc- ture" of the form changes. An attachment is a static document that does require a new revi- sion when any of the contents of the document In his quest to bring ever-faster cameras to the world, Caltech's Lihong Wang has developed technology that can reach blistering speeds of 70 trillion frames per sec- ond—fast enough to see light travel. Just like the cam- era in your cellphone, though, it can only produce flat images. Now, Wang's lab has gone a step further to create a camera that not only records video at incredibly fast speeds but does so in three dimensions. Wang, Bren Pro- fessor of Medical Engineering and Electrical Engineering in the Andrew and Peggy Cherng Department of Medical Engineering, describes the device in a new paper in the journal Nature Communications. The new camera, which uses the same underlying technology as Wang's other compressed ultrafast pho- tography (CUP) cameras, is capable of taking up to 100 bil- lion frames per second. That is fast enough to take 10 bil- lion pictures, more images than the entire human popula- tion of the world, in the time it takes you to blink your eye. Wang calls the new iteration "single-shot stereo-po- larimetric compressed ultrafast photography," or SP- CUP. In CUP technology, all of the frames of a video are captured in one action without repeating the event. This makes a CUP camera extremely quick (a good cellphone camera can take 60 frames per second). Wang added a third dimension to this ultrafast imagery by making the camera "see" more like humans do.
