2016 ASQ International Conference on Quality Standards
Looking for ideas to help your company meet the new ISO 9001:2015 Standard requirements? In November Harpco Systems’ CEO Rich Harpster will present two talks at ASQ International Conference on Quality Standards 2016 in Pittsburgh PA. The conference is being held November 14 & 15 at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center pictured above.

Implementing Risk-Based Thinking Required for ISO 9001:2015 Compliance

This 2 hour workshop introduces implementation of risk-based thinking to guide companies in the identification and management of risk during product design, product manufacturing, and provision of services. You will learn how to identify the key sources of risk, determine their magnitude, and identify which sources of risk represent the greatest threat and must be worked on. Finally, you will learn to overcome the obstacles to implementing risk-based thinking in your company.

Your Supplier’s FMEAs Tell You More About Your Suppliers Than You Know

Review of supplier FMEAs is a commonly used practice for risk assessment of supplier product designs and manufacturing processes. This hour long presentation will show you how to perform a quick 10 to 15-minute analysis of the design and process FMEA contents to gain insight into weaknesses of the supplier’s QMS and the risk exposure and potential financial cost they can incur to your company.

There will be a Q&A session after each talk. If you are attending this conference we’d love to meet you! Shoot us your contact info in an email and we’ll get in touch. Rich will be at the conference all week and is happy to answer any questions you may have on a wide variety of topics including ISO 9001:2015, Risk Based PLM®, FMEAs, Pittsburgh and golf. Seriously; Rich was born & raised in the Pittsburgh area and if you want to talk Steelers & Penguins he’s your guy.
