We need the below information to serve you better

Course Description:

Many Quality Engineers join the workforce with technical understanding of the products without the statistical understanding of product variability. The FDA’s findings of deficiencies concerning sample size, gage studies, statistical process control and other statistical issue indicate the agencies expect definitive evidence that statistics are properly applied. Case studies and example from FDA 483 findings will be presented.

The cost of non-compliance is therefore more than that of compliance. Are you in compliance with the FDA regulations?

In this two day workshop conference you will learn the different statistical tools necessary to comply with global agencies expectations. Through case study analysis we will examine best practices to provide thoughts and ideas to develop or improve the performance of your current system. Additionally, case studies will explore how your management practices can help or hurt your liability that arises from nonconformance with regulators and Auditors.
