Supplier Quality Audits

Vicki Mercer, Senior Supplier Quality Specialist, Bausch & Lomb

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Your customer just requested to audit your facility.  Now what?  Your mind races: Is there something wrong? What do they want?  Do you have to show the auditor everything they want or jeopardize business relationships?

Perhaps you’re on the other side & are new to auditing suppliers.  Where do you start?  More importantly, how do you assess an entire company in a very short period of time and make a judgement call on whether or not the company is compliant?

There’s no need to panic!  This presentation will give you the insight you need to confidently host or perform audits.  It will include auditing fundamentals, the audit process, auditor competencies, auditing tools and techniques, and helpful tips.
