What are the new Document Requirements?
You will learn about the requirement for a quality manual — there is none! How about quality procedures — None! quality records — Only to the extent necessary… Hard requirements for documentation are replaced with the term “documented information”.

The process of developing a Hoshin strategic plan summary, sharing it with employees, and regularly reviewing the metrics that are clearly aligned with the organization’s core objectives and strategy may be infinitely more effective than annually asking employees to memorize the quality policy in preparation for the upcoming registrar audit.
This presentation will provide an overview on developing a Hoshin strategic plan summary as well as Hoshin action plans, implementation plans, and implementation reviews and how these steps correlate to ISO 9001:2015 requirements.
Saturday, SEP 26, 2015 from 08:00 AM – 12:00 PM Central
What does ISO 9001:2015 require for risk analysis and risk management?
Learn what Risk Based Thinking is and how to apply it to your QMS.
While a formal process of risk analysis or risk management is not required in the ISO 9001:2015 standard, the concept of risk is included in eight areas of the current draft of the new standard.
1. Determining risks and opportunities that affect the quality management system.
2. Planning changes to the quality management system.
3. Evaluating processes, as part of the process approach.
4. Establishing appropriate controls of external providers (such as suppliers)
5. Identifying risks that can affect the company’s products, services, and overall customer satisfaction.
6. New product design and development risks.
7. Determining post-delivery support risks (e.g. warranty, maintenance, and other services).
8. Establishing monitoring and measurement of risks.
The inclusion of risk throughout the standard is referred to as “risk based thinking”. The standard does not require specific processes or procedures for risk analysis, like Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), but using FMEAs and Control Plans will provide a basis for risk analysis and management. In this fast paced class we will review some of the core tools used to identify, quantify, and control risks including: Process diagram, FMEA, and Control Plan.Read More»

Defect Mapping is a problem solving tool used to visually identify and track physical locations and types of defects on a product. As a defect occurs during a process on a product, the location of the defect is identified on a map.
The Defect Map provides information on the physical location of the defect on the product and additional pertinent information as well. The more visual you can capture issues, the easier it is to move forward to defining root cause and corrective action.
An introduction to the basics of reliability engineering that clarifies the definition of reliability and shows how it differs from many other quality functions. Key concepts, primary tools, and the impact of reliability are highlighted.
Examples from several products and industries are used to illustrate the role of reliability engineering. The presentation concludes with a description of the ASQ Reliability Division and the services it provides.Read More»
