Quality Assurance and Quality Control both are part of Quality Management, however QA is focused on preventing defects while QC is focused on identifying the defect.

Control Plans are critical quality assurance documents utilized to assist in achieving ISO certification; quick references during internal audits and ease operator training.

They can also be easily converted into a “Quality Audit Plan” to assist production.

A Quality Audit Plan is seen as valued added by the production team. This document outlines QUICK – but valuable - audit points that production can react to immediately when found nonconforming. The audit points should be ones agreed upon between quality and production to ensure buy in and accountablility.

This document is a quality tool that identifies process nonconformances for production because busy production supervisors cannot be everywhere, all the time – and hopefully identifying the problem before it turns into a product nonconformance. If a large amount of the quality teams focus throughout the day is on product audits, it may be too late.

If your company does not have documented Control Plans – that is OK because YOU can create a “Quality Audit Plans” without a previously established Control Plan.

This presentation will provide examples of why Control Plans are valuable and how to start creating Control Plans OR Quality Audit Plans that will become a valuable part of your quality assurance system.

Listen to what happens when a simple attempt to implement SPC unearths some disturbing quality and process design flaws. Everything from gage choice and usage, process flow, machine location, material temperature control and incorrect specification all come together to create a whirlwind of chaos. This is a real case study, scrubbed to protect the victim. See how a few useful tools sort out the mess. But can it be totally fixed? Find out!

This presentation is very controversial, as it destroys the myth of the normal curve in precision machining!

This is a review of the Correct SPC:  the correct use of SPC in precision machining presentation. This presentation destroys the myth of the normal curve in precision machining! I go into the correct distribution, and the proper setup of control charts that allow absolute control of the process! This presentation takes the next step and shows a case study where data was taken side by side using the X hi/lo-R chart, the X bar/R chart and I/MR chart.  The results are astounding! It should be evidence enough to never use X-bar/R or I/MR charts for precision machining ever again!

Process validation activities start with a solid foundation of an established risk management program.  As such, it is often difficult to determine what the validation requirements should be to ensure a compliant process with FDA, ISO, and other regulatory agencies.  This presentation will focus on the basics of Installation Qualification (IQ), Operational Qualification (OQ), and Performance Qualification (PQ) activities and how it ties into a risk management program (i.e. ISO 14971:2012).  It will also touch on the Master Validation Plan (MVP) expectations and sample sizes associated with the products’ risk analysis.
