Quality Control

Next Steps in Revolutionizing the Industry with SBCA’s In-plant Digital QC Program

SBCA is involved with “In-plant Quality Control” programs to fulfill its mission of members gaining the knowledge and power to run successful, growing, profitable companies offering a compelling competitive advantage in the marketplace for their customers and professional growth for employees.

Popstar Lady Gaga was once quoted, “I’m just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.” This idea of incremental change in an attempt to make a great change embodies the work that has been done recently in the development of SBCA’s Digital QC and 3rd Party Digital QA programs.

How SBCA is improving the way CMs measure and manage QC

In the SBCA booth at BCMC 2018, SBCA staff member Joe Schauer displayed how the SBCA Quality Control (QC) Committee’s initiative is a giant step forward in the area of component manufacturing QC.

Quality control (QC) is often thought of as an effort to catch mistakes made by production. However, many times problems and solutions extend beyond just the manufacturing process. 

Testing is underway to determine the effects of weather exposure and time on trusses.

Lumber Design Values

No matter the species, component manufacturers (CMs) purchase and rely on the accuracy and reliability of many different lumber design properties, including: bending (Fb); shear parallel to grain (Fv), compression perpendicular to grain (Fc^), compression parallel to grain (Fc), tension parallel to grain (Ft), and modulus of elasticity (E and Emin).
