In this workshop we take the time to show participants how the tools are used, how they are interrelated, how to incorporate them into their company’s way of doing business, and how to gain improvements. When we wrap up  participants will have a plan to bring back to their company and commence AUDITING

I have found training for the sake of training a waste of resources. The lead-time between the uses of the tools are too long to retain the new knowledge when needed. Project-Based Training & Implementation is designed to solve an immediate problem. PROJECT-BASED TRAINING & IMPLEMENTATION, this is how we “Transform Quality into Value”.  CORE QUALITY TOOLS: IMPROVEMENT & IMPLEMENTATION WORKSHOP.

DAY 1: Standardized Job Elements & Workplace Organization Learn the best practices to establish a repeatable, predictable baseline for improvement involving the highest levels of safety, quality and productivity through 5S. Additional tools included:

  • Defining your QMS
  • Standardized Training
  • Managing Change.
  • Visual Management (5S)
  • Leadership & Planning
  • IATF 16949: 2016 Audit (Section 1-6)

     (1 day /8:00 AM – 5:00 PM / 8 hrs)

DAY 2: Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) w/ Control Plans : Particants will highlight and prevent future failures from occurring. FMEA focuses on reducing risk of failure occurrences by making design and process changes, which has proven to save organizations significant amounts of money by prevention of failures/product recalls. Additional tools included:

  • Process Control Plan (PCP)
