Session 01: "Control Plan"by Babak Baghaei
In the business world today controlling waste and maintaining a high level of quality is imperative for a company to succeed. The cost of doing business is ever increasing. Therefore, it has become increasingly important to assure that parts are being produced that conform to customer requirements every time. In addition, we must have the ability to detect a non-conforming part or assembly as well as a plan for responding to changing process conditions. The majority of manufacturing companies are experienced at detecting initial problems and developing corrective actions to correct the problem. But many fall short when it comes to sustaining those corrective actions or process improvements over a long period of time. The purpose of a Control Plan is to monitor processes and assure that any improvements are maintained over the life cycle of the part or product. Control Plans are currently being utilized to ensure product quality in the Automotive, Aerospace, Agricultural Equipment, Heavy Equipment and many other industries throughout the world. By attending this clinic presentation, you will … 1. Understand what is a Control Plan 2. Why to use a Control Plans 3. How to develop a Control Plan 4. And how to implement a Control Plan.

Session 02: "Cost of Quality"
by Mahboubeh Shabani
These days, quality and cost are among the most important competitive characteristics of a product. The level of quality is typically assumed to be related to cost. How much a poor quality will affect the cost of a product and consequently the company’s revenue, and reputation, or how much it needs to spend money on achieving the desired quality, has created a special place for discussion about quality costing inside each company.
Quality cost analysis does not solve quality problems, and besides, improvement projects must be identified to diagnose and eliminate the root cause of the problems.
