Supplier Auditing Beyond the Standards

Typically, supplier management programs will use a supplier survey or an on-site audit to verify if a supplier is complaint with the requirements of a standard or regulation. However, for a supplier management program to be value added to an organization, the supplier evaluation should look beyond the requirements of a standard or regulation.  Supplier auditing should also consider items such as supplier capability, capacity, and contingency plans.

Meeting Presentation: Supplier Auditing Beyond Standards

 

About the Speaker

Mark Allen Durivage has worked as a practitioner, educator, consultant, and author. He is Managing Principal Consultant at Quality Systems Compliance LLC, an ASQ Fellow, and holds several ASQ certifications including; CRE, CQE, CQA, CSQP, and CSSBB. Durivage presented the initial proposal, was involved the development of the Certified Supplier Quality Professional (ASQ-CSQP) and holds CSQP #1. He has written several books available through ASQ Quality Press, published several articles in Quality Progress, and is a frequent contributor to Life Science Connect.

ASM Meeting: Next Generation Metals Design Strategies for Total Performance in Implantable Devices

ASQ members accrue 0.3 R.U.s

 

October Meeting Preview: Time & Location TBD

 

Date: October. 24th­­

Agenda: Technical Presentation by Dr. Jeremy Schaffer, Fort Wayne Metals

 

Please see below for an overview of the presentation and speaker bio:

 

Next Generation Metals Design Strategies for Total Performance in Implantable Devices

Adam J Griebel, Jeremy E. Schaffer

 

There are several challenges looming in Med-Tech where scalable material solutions will bring new levels of clinical success. For example, toddlers born with congenital heart disease must often face open heart surgery in the face of few devices well-adapted to their needs.  Children with scoliosis may receive correction devices that are simply “too stiff” for their anatomy and underperform, for example, due to fastener-loosening, repeat intervention, and infectious risk.  As a cross-functional design community, for every challenge, we have an opportunity to focus our efforts and drive toward a better future state.  This discussion will cover current research and development efforts in three key areas designed to benefit life and overcome real clinical issues, namely: absorbable metals technology, nickel-free and superelastic beta titanium, and functional wire forms. It is clear that a key ingredient to drive success lies at the tissue interface.  Therefore, the talk will further cover specific efforts to drive an effective “handshake” with tissue at the absorbing, metal-receding, tissue-advancing, magnesium implant interface. Beta titanium with greater than 6% total strain recovery will be showcased for potential use in interface with the pediatric spine.  Finally, a unique micro-grooved wire will be highlighted with functional physical and chemical tissue interface properties.

 

 

Jeremy Schaffer, Director of R&D, Fort Wayne Metals

 

As a Purdue Mechanical, Materials and Biomedical engineer alumni, Jeremy has invested the past decade working as a research engineer developing, tuning and inventing medical device materials to fuel advances in human care.  He currently leads a materials innovation focused group at Fort Wayne Metals Research (FWM) based in Fort Wayne, Indiana with worldwide markets and research touch points. Throughout this journey, aside from leading the research team, he has worked and interacted with local and global experts to move meaningful technology from concept to market. One example of clinical significance was process design to achieve a 100% life increase in CoNiCr pacing lead composites through invention of a bulk wire nanostructuring process. This material is applied in neural lead conductors where it must maintain a conductive link while withstanding potential impact loads and high cycle fatigue from the beating heart. The FWM R&D team regularly interact with clinical and academic discovery through sponsored research, students via guest lectureship to stir engagement interest, small and large industry as well as government-funded research (NASA GRC, ANL, PNNL, CERN).

 

The team’s research in materials extends well beyond any single market with meaningful long term goals designed to improve human life.  “Our team knows that whether working in smart materials for morphing supersonic airplanes or to solve middle cerebral aneurysms – the human impact is worthy of investment”, says Dr. Schaffer.  The group’s research portfolio includes near horizon projects for sustaining customers, for example, design advances to improve fatigue durability in brain stimulation leads, as well as future generation “moonshots”, as for example, orthopedic “vitamin” metal alloys designed to support tissue restoration then disappear beneficially.  Further, they realize that developing meaningful goals and executing through failures along the way requires humility and a team engaged across boundaries of research, industry, academia and geography.

Time: 7:00 pm/ ET / 6:00 pm CT/ 5:00 pm MT/ 400 pm PT

Duration: 60 minutes

Presenter: Wes Shelton

The Quality Technician, however defined in an organization, has many duties and responsibilities in working alongside a variety of other professionals.  So where does the Quality Technician fit in the framework of organizational operations alongside of inspectors, engineers, auditors and the green and black belt six sigma practitioners?  Additionally, how does an individual acquire the necessary skills to perform effectively in the Quality Technician role?  How can someone continue to develop their skills to advance?

This webinar will provide not only technical skills that would be required to perform the duties and responsibilities, but also the “soft” skills that a quality technician should possess to be successful.  Several sources of information will be reviewed including a specific study performed by Mr. Shelton.  Once the duties, responsibilities, skill and characteristics are defined and understood, methods to obtain and develop these skills and characteristics will be discussed.  This material can service as a roadmap for Quality Technician development within any organization.

2.  What are the duties, responsibilities, skills and characteristics for a Quality Technician?

3.  What level of performance constitutes a Quality Technician best performer concerning analytical and soft skills (obviously HIGH – but this is more a comparison between analytical and soft skills)
