Topic: The Quality Airplane - Failure Analysis Takes Flight

Using the right people to identify, contain and correct abnormalities is inherent to controlling your routine processes.  The speaker will talk about getting people from the manufacturing floor actively involved in treating failures, while promoting the application of  ‘root cause analysis’ methodology at all levels.  We will also discuss the differences between treating a single abnormality versus a chronic failure.
