“And last night, I had another Monica Bellucci dream.  I was in Paris on a case, Monica called and asked me to meet her at a certain cafe. She said she needed to talk to me…” You could buy into this dream, repeated here word for word, but it’s FBI Deputy Director Gordon Cole — […]

ikor-jazzaldia1

During last year’s edition we were able to congratulate and acknowledge each other as true “survivors” along with Gloria Gaynor… unfortunately, this year, due to personal reasons, last night we only managed to make it to the closure of the Jazzaldia and bid farewell to this edition with Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya + Terence Blanchard y Gregory Porter  […]

IKOR_Evolution

Summer is here at last! It’s time to store coats in the wardrobe, get the deckchairs out of the garage and take a walk along the beach any time the weather works in your favour (here in the North you never know). One of my favourite things to do at this time of year is […]

IKOR_Smart Wave

When the first rays of the spring sun arrive, those of us who live in San Sebastian quickly turn our gaze towards the sea, with yearning eyes and a certain dose of anxiety… Because we have the great fortune of being able to grease our cogs with salty water and sand. What kind of grease […]

Guanxi! Let's go together

I like Shanghai. I have visited this city of contrasts several times, where ancient temples coexist with modern skyscrapers, and where Lamborghinis and Porsches share the streets with old souped-up electric bicycles carrying entire families. It is a city that continually surprises and which I encourage you to visit as soon as you get the […]

IKOR Festival Cine San Sebastian

Pan Jinlian…  it’s been almost a decade since I heard that mysterious name for the first and only time. Suzhou, Jiangsu province, two women lower their voices while they observe the carefree stroll of a young woman along the lake shore. There’s nothing particularly remarkable about her but something strange about her appearance draws everyone’s […]

“Oh no, not I! I will survive! Oh, as long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive! And I’ve got all my life to live. And I’ve got all my love to give. And I’ll survive. I will survive! I will survive! July and just like that it’s here again. Summer […]

IKOR_ STAR-UP

There is no doubt that the Start-up phenomenon is seeing a lot of coverage in the Spanish media, logical if we analyse the potential of so many young unemployed and their extensive education. The alternative of self-employment is consolidating itself as a way to channel their eagerness to work, and their fresh ideas attract the […]

IKOR_DSS2016

“You must understand what Culture means to us. Culture is our pride. Culture is our sacrifices. Culture is our noblest symbol of excellence. Culture is a tribute to the democratic philosophy. Culture is our aspiration and our name. Culture is the essence of Greekness…” These words were spoken 30 years ago at the Oxford Union. […]

IKOR Results

You probably already know the story about the student who gave this answer. When he saw his teacher’s angry expression, he explained that he didn’t know whether he had wanted an accurate or fast reply. This quandary is something we face regularly: Should we do things well or finish them quickly? I’m sure I can […]

BoundarySCAN_IKOR

The “Boundary-Scan” testing system, also known as “JTAG” , is a testing technique in electronic systems for integrated circuits or chips (microprocessors, microcontrollers, memories, chipsets,etc.) To do this, they must be compatible with this system in order to be able to verify their electrical interconnects which, due to their encapsulated format, are not physically accessible […]

IKOR normas medioambientales

From the classics, such as IEC, UNE, EN, DIN, ISO, IPC, which govern aspects ranging from functionality, robustness and criteria for the acceptability of assemblies to […]

IKOR_SPI_Technology

If we are wondering which process has the biggest room for improvement in the automatic component assembly process (SMT), the answer without a doubt is the screen printing or solder paste application process. It is known that this solder paste printing process produces more defects than any other process within the automatic SMD component assembly […]

IKOR- San Sebastián

If San Sebastián features in your plans for this summer and your idea is simply to have a rest, we’re not going to make it easy for you … Because even four weeks isn’t long enough to enjoy the city in summer: the Semana Grande, walking through the Cristina Enea park, or along the Paseo […]

If we remember our previous post, we made a brief introduction to the DMAIC cycle as a tool to improve processes: D. Define; M. Measure; A. Analyse; I. Improve and C. Control. In this post we will talk about the Improve stage. “Improvement is not possible if we do not measure what is happening and […]
