Event description:

Overview: Many companies use acceptance sampling as a standard business practice. The most common applications use attribute sampling based on ANSI/ASQ Z1.4 and Zero Acceptance Number Sampling Plans by Nicholas L. Squeglia. These common methods are not always the best approaches. This seminar will expose to you to a variety of methods and help you understand when to use them. While many of the examples come from medical device manufacturing because of the rigid regulatory structure, the methods apply in aviation, defense, and other manufacturing settings. This unique hands-on course provides attendees with a solid understanding of acceptance sampling methods and their application to manufacturing. The course delivers tools, templates, and insight that will allow participants to choose and implement the best sampling methods for their application. Many companies have procedures and programs that fall short of the regulatory requirements and good statistical practice. In some cases, FDA may give the firm a 483 or even a Warning Letter. QMS audits may result in nonconformances that need to be addressed. In other cases, the firm may not use the best methods, resulting in waste of resources. This two-day hands-on course provides a clear understanding, with many exercises, of the methods and underlying statistics for acceptance sampling. As part of the practical implementation, the course explains common standards such as Z1.4 for attribute sampling and Z1.9 for variables sampling. In addition, the course covers other, less well know, methods such as sequential sampling, continuous sampling, and chain sampling. The course also covers specific applications of sampling including incoming inspection, design validation, design verification, process validation, and quality audits.
