Inside Quality Digest Live for Jan. 20, 2017

Flying warehouses, the new ISO 14001:2015, universal guaranteed income

Published: Monday, January 23, 2017 - 09:23

We were back to a full complement of hosts on this week’s episode of QDL, as I returned from vacation to an action-package show with lots of interesting content.

In case you missed it, this past Friday’ Quality Digest Live looked at:

Amazon Patents Flying Warehouse

Dirk Dusharme reports that those crazy kids at the mega-successful online retailer are now striving to use dirigibles, robots, and drones to pick, pack, and deliver your packages from 45,000 feet in the sky.

Combination Products Review Program

I covered this news item about the FDA’s status update on their Intercenter Consult Process Study Report, which was launched last year to help modernize the review of combination products, such as drugs that act as medical devices.

Thriving With the Revised ISO 14001:2015

We interviewed Burt Holm, the Director of Eastern Territory Sales for DNV GL Business Assurance, NA, about what users need to know about the transition to ISO 14001:2015. Be sure to register for the webinar on this topic.

Resolve to Simplify and Evolve

Long-time QD columnists Davis Balestracci offered up 12 thought-provoking quality resolutions for 2017, and I commented on those that really registered for me.

“Off-Script: Automation, Basic Income, and the Future of Work”

In our weekly forum, I posed a question about what comes next if further technological advancement obviates the need for people to work in exchange for basic goods and services.

Tune in this coming Friday, Jan. 27 for our next episode of Quality Digest Live. You can watch us either on our home page or our special player page. See you there!
