CMSC 2010

Join the Coordinate Metrology Society in Reno, July 12–16, at the spacious Grand Sierra Resort for the 26th annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC).

 

Rather than focusing on sales, as do most trade shows, this unique event for 3-D coordinate metrology focuses on technical education, yet showcases the latest in cutting-edge portable coordinate metrology systems, software, and supporting hardware throughout 30,000 square feet of exhibition space.

 

For more information on the CMSC plus tour and recreation information (e.g., multiple social events in which to interact and network with the “Who’s Who” of the metrology world), visit www.cmsc.org/cmsc-attendee-information.

Mike Micklewright: Creating a Leaner Quality Management System

Micklewright suggests applying lean principles to your quality management system.

 

Downsize Documentation

• Companies tend to overdocument their QMS

• Sort your documents

• Check the revision record of documents

• Check documents from old standards

• Check contents of documents

• Create two-page quality manual

 

Using quick changeover to modify documents

• Value stream map of documentation

• Reduce wasted time in creating, modifying or approving documents

 

Integrating lean into your QMS

• Lean, ISO 9001, and other quality programs often duplicate each other

 

For more information on making a lean QMS, read Micklewright's book: Lean ISO 9001: Adding Spark to your ISO 9001 QMS and Sustainability to your Lean Efforts available at the ASQ book store.
