Event Description

Learn Useful Analytic Methods to Move Beyond Compliance to Improved Management Practices

In today’s world of food safety, everyone in the supply chain is challenged to document what they are doing. The FDA requires validation of your company preventive control plan. This means that your company and your suppliers must prove that you can control hazards or are working to control hazards. Most companies look at this requirement as an expensive, manpower consuming exercise in futility. But most companies do not yet know how to use the data they spend so much time and money collecting. This seemingly expensive documentation yields data that is valuable to cutting costs, improving food safety, meeting legal requirements and improving business processes.

Analytics is the process of converting raw data to useful management information. Easy to understand trends and dashboards make data visible allowing all minds to focus on issues. There are some relatively easy, quick to implement analytic approaches that farms, processors, supply chains, distributors and packers can implement to help them manage more efficiently.

Join this session, where expert speaker Dr. John Ryan will illustrate how the time and money spent for environmental sampling at farms, planning for preventive controls, assuring supplier compliance, and managing process critical controls can be converted and used by managers and teams to glean critical information from often confusing data and used to drive cost reductions and business improvements.

You will learn to apply simple analytic approaches designed to help companies turn the corner from “compliance” to “improved management practices” which will result in reduced costs, improved yields, fewer recalls, lower inspection and test costs, and improved customer service and delivery. You will learn some basic analytic concepts, how to apply them in everyday settings and learn the difference between problems caused by your company’s system and problems that are assignable and attackable by employees. This session goes beyond simply telling you what you need to do to comply, and instead provides comprehensive training on how to define problem areas, analyze causes, establish a systematic approach to improvement and document your efforts.
