Manufacturing Regulations & Best Practices Training Conferences

Conferences on Manufacturing Regulations and Best Practices

Manufacturing is still big business in United States. As the demand for manufactured goods has recovered from the recession, companies in the manufacturing sector must find new and creative ways to meet growing demand while keeping costs low. 

However, the cost-saving strategies from the 1990s and early 2000s are no longer relevant in today’s marketplace. Success in manufacturing now necessitates that manufacturing industry professionals stay on top of new manufacturing regulations and standards, and understand how to make sense of the sea of measurements and data points that computer-enabled logistics has become.

Best Practices in Manufacturing

Fortunately, there is now a convenient way to stay on top of the latest manufacturing trends and regulations, and to understand how the manufacturing industry is devising new ways to surmount its greatest difficulties. WiseQuestion, a leading provider of continuing education for professionals, offers manufacturing professionals a hub where the brightest minds in the manufacturing sector come to share their insight, guidance, and proven roadmaps for success in the industry.

From utilizing layered audits and ensuring effective contractor selection and screening to promoting organizational change and understanding cost-to-serve, our webinars and audio conferences are aimed at the most recent hot topics in this quickly evolving sector. Need information on the latest developments in 3D printing and additive manufacturing? How about training for customer experience management? We’ve got you covered.

Implementing ISO Standards

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) creates voluntary specifications and guides that manufacturers use to ensure their materials, products and processes fit the purposes they are meant to serve. Quality management systems that meet the requirements of various relevant ISOs demonstrate the quality and safety of their processes and can assure a company’s customers and vendors that it is satisfying the highest standards of its industry.

Our expert speakers can help you properly implement the following ISO standards:

  • ISO 9001:2015
  • ISO 9001 certifications and audits
  • ISO 45001
  • ISO 9004
  • ISO 13485 

ANSI Standards for Manufacturing Systems

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) also promotes and facilitates voluntary consensus standards and conformity assessment systems in many different industries. Its ratings and performance requirements improve the safety of a variety of consumer products. Our webinars cover ANSI topics including: 

  • Acceptance sampling
  • Design of experiments
  • ANSI/ASQ Z1.4
  • ANSI/ASQ Z1.9
  • Reliability models
  • AS9100, AS9120 and AS9110

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

While quality assurance refers to measuring and ensuring products’ quality, quality control makes sure that products and services meet consumer standards. As part of your company’s QA and QC functions, you must respond to both critical incidents (e.g., accidents, major breaches or outages) and repetitive problems (complaints, errors, audit nonconformities) in order to identify systemic causes that if removed, will prevent reoccurrence of the issue. 

Organizations need direction and training in how to conduct proper quality management with:

  • Root cause analysis
  • CAPA and corrective action
  • Failure mode effective analysis
  • Dynamic control plan implementation
  • Understanding cycle time
  • Measurement system analysis
  • Standardization of continual improvement
  • The seven basic quality tools for management

Using Statistical Process Control

Production control and process validation often require sampling methods to ascertain the suitability of a process before moving to production (process validation) or for checking production lots for acceptance. Our expert speakers can help you understand how to use statistical process control, process capability methods and other methods including:

  • Stability studies
  • Process capability analysis
  • Process variation
  • Multi-vari charts
  • Product reliability tests
  • Hypothesis testing

Ensuring Safety in Manufacturing

Having an effective safety management system is absolutely essential – and it’s the law. Your company or facility’s safety manager is responsible for making sure you comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) many mandates. From OSHA 101 to advanced topics in hazard control, learn how to comply with the myriad state and federal rules and regulations that apply to the manufacturing industry, including:

  • The Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act 
  • OSHA final rules
  • Machine guarding
  • OSHA Tracking Rule
  • OSHA inspections
  • Job hazard analysis
  • Safety metrics

Developing Lean Initiatives for Supply Chain Success

Supply chain professionals are often responsible for reducing inventory based upon working capital goals and financial objectives. Through sound lean initiatives, you can reach your financial objectives while maximizing customer satisfaction and service. Our experts in lean initiatives and supply chain management cover all the bases for you:

  • Industrial robotics
  • Reshoring and offshoring
  • Workplace safety and lean management
  • Lean success secrets
  • Lean documents (DHFs, DMRs and DHRs) 
  • Lean value stream mapping
