QM-Systems: How quality management sustainably improves your company’s performance
This part of our seminar deals with the company-wide implementation of quality management systems and discusses what aspects need to be considered in order to successfully implement the various guidelines that are stipulated by applicable standards. Apart from looking into the multi-purpose ISO 9001, we will primarily be focussing on the ISO/TS 16949 – which is widely regarded as probably the most important standard in the automotive industry. Because the most recent fourth edition of ISO/TS 16949 will be coming into force in April 2014, we will also be taking this opportunity to highlight the most important changes and point out what effects these are going to have on the practical application of quality management in the automotive-sector.
The significance of comprehensive gauge management
Practically every quality-related action first and foremost depends on the acquisition of accurate measurement values. This simple fact allows you to easily understand why the genesis of all successful quality management is rooted in the application of consistently reliable measuring equipment. That is why the second part of this seminar’s first block deals solely with the topic of “Gauge Management and Calibration”.
Change control: Fundamental principles and techniques
All change processes must be executed in a controlled manner, as otherwise there is always the risk that important factors are overlooked or inconspicuous details are forgotten. It therefore comes as no surprise, that ISO 9001, ISO 13485, FDA, GxP, and other applicable standards, rules, regulations, directives, and recommendations stipulate extensive recommendations for the implementation of a comprehensive change-control-system. This part of our seminar provides a detailed insight into the concept of change control and uses practical examples in order to highlight its underlying principles and explain the change-related techniques applied in contemporary quality management.
The application of mobile IT-solutions in quality management
In this part of our seminar we will be looking at the implementation of mobile IT-devices such as smartphones or tablet-PCs in today’s quality management. We will further be addressing the application and future possibilities of web-based solutions and explain how these enable you to execute leaner and more flexible quality management processes.
