Join the biggest manufacturing QMS Virtual Bootcamp of the year and access 4 exclusive online sessions, which include in-depth analysis of critical aspects like ISO 9001:2015 Key Changes and Transition, ISO 9001:2015 Auditing, FMEA & Dynamic Control Plan, Performance Metrics, Root Cause Analysis, Corrective and Preventive Action.

Session-1: ISO 9001:2015, RBT, FMEA & Dynamic Control Plan

Session Highlights

  • ISO 9001:2015 Key Changes and Transition

    A new version of the standard, ISO 9001:2015, has been launched, replacing the previous version. The most noticeable change to the standard is its new structure. ISO 9001:2015 now follows the same overall structure as other ISO management system standards, making it easier for anyone using multiple management systems. Take part in this must attend Live Webinar by Duke Okes, to get an overview of the change in requirements for and transition of a Quality Management System (QMS) based on the recently published International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015. During the session attendees will gain an understanding of the new structure of ISO 9001:2015, key terms and recommendations to make the successful transition from ISO 9001:2008 to 9001:2015.

  • Senior Management Overview of ISO 9001:2015: Tracking Accountability

    The quality management principles under Quality Management System (QMS) standards are considered to be applicable and relevant to all service providing organizations. These standards help in promoting the adoption of a process approach to develop, implement, and improve the effectiveness of a QMS. If an organization has to function effectively, it must identify and manage linked activities. Join QMS expert Duke Okes, where he will highlight the benefits of an effective QMS. Duke will introduce attendees to the key requirements of ISO 9001:2015, giving you a better understanding of both your organization's obligations and your personal responsibilities.

  • ISO 9001:2015 Auditing

    The recently published International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 for Quality Management System (QMS) enables organization to make a number of subjective decisions, making audits a challenge for both internal and external auditors. The revision of ISO 9001:2015 introduces a new 10 clause structure, with many new methods and terms. This webinar by expert speaker Duke Okes will explore the change in approach, methods and technique for information discovery for auditors. This session focuses on key changes in the new ISO 9001:2015 version which do not need records as objective evidence.

  • Risk Based Thinking in and Beyond ISO 9001:2015

    ISO 9001:2015's provision for "actions to address risks and opportunities" is one of the most significant changes to the standard. The standard requires risk-based thinking with regard to the context of the organization and the needs and expectations of interested parties, however it is also necessary to go beyond the mandatory aspects of the standard to consider other risks and opportunities. This must attend webinar for quality professionals by industry expert William A. Levinson will focus primarily on what the traditional audit does not cover, noting that the stated requirements of the standard already tells us what we have to audit. Mr. Levinson will also introduce the army's risk management process as a free off-the-shelf resource that can be adapted to industrial applications.

  • Achieve Reliable and Economical Products and Processes Using Failure Mode Effects Analysis

    Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an important part of Advanced Quality Planning (AQP) or Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP). The purpose of FMEA is to identify potential failure modes along with severity, likelihood of occurrence, and likelihood of detection and therefore interception. Deliverables consists of identifying critical to quality characteristics and action plans for eliminating or mitigating risks related to them. Some FMEA concepts (assessment of severity and probability) carry over to ISO 9001:2015's requirement for risk-based thinking. For a complete analysis of FMEA and its uses, join expert speaker William A. Levinson in a Live Webinar on advanced quality planning (AQP), and much more.

  • Dynamic Control Plans Drive Continual Improvement

    Dynamic Control Plans are an important part of advanced quality planning (AQP). It describes how, in terms of measurement procedures and equipment, the process is to measure and control critical to quality (CTQ) product characteristics. The control plan is in turn the result of the deliverables from the Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), which is another element of AQP. This makes the FMEA and control plan into a single entity as both are shown in context with quality function deployment (QFD). To understand how the dynamic control plan fits into the quality management system to support AQP, join industry expert William A. Levinson in a Live Webinar. This session will help attendees recognize critical characteristics and significant characteristics that must be addressed by the control plan in terms of measurement/inspection and measurement equipment.

Session-2: CAPA & Root Cause Analysis

Session Highlights

  • Performance Metrics & CAPA

    Risk-based thinking, or "actions to address risks and opportunities," is among the most significant additions to ISO 9001:2015. This provision encompasses what we currently call preventive action, or proactive actions that prevent poor quality before it happens. Corrective action for poor quality is mandatory, and preventive action is even better, but the predominant focus is still on only one of the Toyota Production System's Seven Wastes. Join industry veterans William A. Levinson & Duke Okes in an online webinar that covers standard CAPA procedures (AIAG's Effective Problem Solving, Toyota's A3 process, and Error Cause Removal), and also the relative effectiveness of engineering and administrative controls as corrective or preventive actions.

  • A Step-by-Step Guide to Select the Right Tools for Root Cause Analysis

    Root cause analysis (RCA) is used by organizations to respond to both critical incidents (e.g., accidents, major breaches or outages) and repetitive problems (complaints, errors, audit nonconformities). The intent is to identify systemic causes that if removed, will prevent reoccurrence of the issue. Join industry veteran Duke Okes in a Live Webinar that aims to demonstrate the use of System 2 thinking, combined with the right visual tools that can significantly increase the effectiveness of problem diagnosis. The use of a structured approach to problem diagnosis, supported by visual tools can not only yield better results, but also support better decision making ability.

  • Barriers to Effective Root Cause

    The root cause process consists of people carrying out various activities for collecting information on a failure situation. This includes identifying possible causes as well as collecting and analyzing data to form conclusions stating what needs to be prevented and what is safe to process and execute. The barriers then have to evaluate the process being used to initiate and guide the analysis, and the knowledge and skills of the people involved. Join industry expert Duke Okes in an upcoming online manufacturing event that will provide attendees with a list of eight specific barriers to effective RCCA often found in organizations, and provide proven solutions to address them. This presentation analyses data from multiple organizations and identifies issues in their way.

  • Reducing Human Error by Dealing with Root Causes

    Organizations try to change human behavior rather than the system within which the individual is working, then are frustrated when problems recur. In-order to significantly reduce the rate of human error industries should focus on business process design while better considering human factors. Human error should never be the stopping point when conducting a root cause analysis, but should instead simply be a point at which the problem is then redefined. Join industry expert Duke Okes, in this information packed Live Webinar that aims to help QA personnel learn to look in more detail at the process being carried out and the interaction between the individual and other factors in their environment to yield vital information that can help identify the actual root cause.
