Writing Exceptional Audit Reports (TUT02)
Presented by: Mary Chris Easterly
8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (Tuesday and Wednesday)

This workshop will cover the crucial elements of an exceptional audit report: a summary of the processes and systems reviewed; positive feedback; and observations of gaps in compliance with requirements. We will address how to write unambiguous observations to facilitate identification of the root cause and appropriate corrective actions by the auditee. To involve participants and help them learn to write exceptional audit reports, groups of attendees will review examples of poorly written observations, then apply concepts learned to improve the observations and present them to all attendees.

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) (Course ID # 6162)
Presented by: David M. Little
8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (Tuesday and Wednesday)

This course is designed to provide the student with working knowledge of the FMEA process as it is applied to product, process, or system. References will be made to ISO 9001, AS9100, and TS 16949 standards. Failure Modes and Effects Analysis is a critical step in the development of new product or in the modifications of existing products. This systematic approach parallels, formalizes and documents the metal disciplines that an engineer normally goes through in any design process to identify risk. Discussions on FMEA history, methods, types, responsibilities, documentation, implementation and software will be reviewed and presented.
