QDG - The Road to Reliable Operations, Processes and Equipment

All Quality Discussion Group (QDG) events are free to attend and open to anyone interested in participating in the discussion.

Topic:

Reliability is a journey, not a destination.

Any manager wants a reliable plant equipment and operations. Huge amount of money and resources are invested in order to meet this purpose. In Canada for example, around $42 billion are spent each year only for sustainable natural resource use, mitigation of environmental impacts and Maintenance. A great portion of this money will be wasted if the people in charge of building the failure-free operations program are not aware of the techniques and frameworks to use. 

In order to get to the point of: Zero operation’ injury, Zero defect, Zero failures, zero downtime or least downtime, zero waste of time or product loss, least maintenance cost; comply with safety or environmental regulations, Mistake- proof procurement, proactive activities need to be undertaken and decision made.

Based on relevant standards and framework, this presentation will take you through all the signposts on your way. We will discuss how to move from criticality analysis to effective action that yields reliable operations.

QDG - TRIZ Inventive Principles for better Quality in Services

This presentation is continuation of topic started during May 18th Quality Discussion Group on 40 Inventive Principles.

During my previous presentations on TRIZ (the Russian acronym of the "Theory of Inventive Problem Solving"), I made TRIZ introduction with understanding of problems as results of contradictions, which is mutually exclusive requirements. TRIZ offers tools to resolve contradictions. Previously, we discussed Separation Principles (in time, in space, between the parts and the whole, as well as separations based upon a condition). And even if you attended these presentations, or new audience who is joining us today for the first time, you still will have a chance to get familiar with another TRIZ tool - Inventive Principles.

Application of 40 Inventive Principles of TRIZ in healthcare and education will be in the focus of this presentation.  More examples of applications of Inventive Principles in manufacturing and service industries may be further discussed in future presentations.

Quality Discussion Group

Topic: Quality and CSI - Drivers for a Successful Program

You’ve established a Quality Improvement program.  You’ve assigned Quality and Continual Service Improvement roles within your organization.  You’ve even had some project successes.  But interest is waning.  The program seems to be withering away as another failed attempt at the elusive target of service excellence.  Everyone is back doing their “real” day-to-day work.

All too often, the most well-intentioned Quality and Service Improvement programs fail.  Why does that happen?  Are there ways to avoid pitfalls and have a thriving culture of CSI?

Based on learnings from a number of implementations of improvement programs, this discussion outlines observed snares and snags to highlight the key requirements of a successful and impactful Improvement Program within your organization.

Speaker: Ron Read

Ron Read is a Management Consultant with over 30 years of experience in roles that span Process Improvement and IT Service Management Delivery for clients and partners across Canada, USA and South America.  Ron is a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, delivering optimization, process efficiencies and improvement solutions resulting in substantial benefits for a wide spectrum of industries.

In addition to serving as an account recovery manager for multiple clients inclusive of Fortune 100 companies, Ron provided a measurement and validation framework to evaluate global delivery capabilities for the identification and replication of best practices across the organization, providing consistent and predictable service delivery.

Ron has developed continuous service improvement and strategic planning programs based on Lean Six Sigma for a variety of delivery organizations, provisioning additional value and enhanced competitiveness within existing engagements.  Ron has also had the opportunity to develop and deliver Lean Six Sigma training and provide coaching for both Green and Black Belt candidates as they pursued their improvement projects and certification.

Ron has two daughters and two sons-in-law (who are brothers)!  He and his wife have made Calgary home for almost 4 decades!  When he is not working, you are likely to find him playing bass in an old time Rock ‘n’ Roll band!

QDG - TRIZ Inventive Principles for better Quality in Products and Services

Update:

The topic originally scheduled for May 18 has been cancelled due to speaker unavailability.  Instead ASQ Calgary will host a session on TRIZ.

About the Topic

Many from this audience already had the opportunity to attend my TRIZ presentations at ASQ-Calgary during last 8 years (wow - time flies!). During these presentations, I made TRIZ introduction with understanding of problems as results of contradictions, which is mutually exclusive requirements. We looked at functional and inherent contradictions.

TRIZ offers tools to resolve contradictions. We discussed Separation Principles (in time, in space, between the parts and the whole, as well as separations based upon a condition). And even if you attended these presentations, or new audience who is joining us today for the first time, you did not have yet a chance to get familiar with another TRIZ tool - Inventive Principles.

There are 40 Inventive Principles of TRIZ. Of course, during this meeting we will not look in details at each of them. However, we will get familiar with about a half-dozen Inventive Principles useful to address presented cases.  Topic of 40 Inventive Principles may be continued in the second part of this year.

And by the way, if you are still pondering about what TRIZ stands for: TRIZ is the Russian acronym of the "Theory of Inventive Problem Solving."

About the Speaker

Maria Stoletova has over 15 years of consulting and teaching experience in the quality area.

QDG - From Zero to 9001:2015 in Under Eight Months

About the Topic

Companies all over the world are just beginning to consider the necessary changes it will require to bring their ISO9001 System into compliance with the 2015 Standard. But as Jeff discovered, the recent revisions do not have to pose as a major obstacle, and in many cases will be advantageous to the business.  Starting from the ground up just as the new standard was released this past September; Jeff was able to build a Quality Management System for his current client that was fully functioning by early 2016. And after a series of audits in February and March, the client was granted ISO9001:2015 Certification the first week of April.

Jeff will present his methods for developing a Quality Management System where none previously existed, and share some of the tools he used. He will also discuss the unique features of ISO9001:2015, and how to transform or create your QMS to not only conform with those, but to take advantage of the enhancements in a manner that will benefit the QMS and the business as a whole. 

About the Speaker

Jeff is the President of J Rosaine Quality and Consulting, whose recent clients include the TransCanada Corporation and Canadian Energy Services. Jeff has been involved in Quality Auditing since 1996 and Quality Management since 1999. Along the way, he has earned ASQ Certified Quality Manager and Certified Quality Auditor designations. Jeff is always happy to share his experiences with any and all Quality professionals. In turn, he is continuously looking to gain more knowledge and learn new ideas from this same group.
