Conference Workshops

Workshops

Monday, Sept. 23, 10:00 A.M. - 4:30 P.M.

Basic Inspection: Beginning Level

Advance registration is required – limit 16 people
Presenter: Gregory Gay
The focus of this workshop is to get precision tools into the hands of the attendees and to review the proper procedures to achieve precise measurements. Parts will be provided to the class in order to practice precision measurement. Attendees will be using micrometers, calipers, pin gages, gage blocks, dial indicators, depth gages, height stands with surface plates, and additional hand precision measuring tools. This workshop will also cover use of go/no-go gages, functional gages, and how to determine correct gage pin sizes. Not only will each attendee conduct measurements but there will also be some group measurements with analysis of the results. The workshop includes a discussion of calibration and the need to check gages prior to use.
 

Tuesday, Sept. 24, 10:00 A.M. - 4:30 P.M.

Product & Process Audits

Advance registration is required – limit 16 people
Presenter: Jim Spichiger
This is a highly interactive workshop that focuses on the tools and techniques required to successfully conduct product and process audits. Participants will discuss the auditor’s roll for the various types to audits and they will participate in a simulated process audit during the duration of the workshop. Each phase of an audit (pre-audit preparation, audit activity, and post audit follow-up) will be addressed. Attendees will be provided a comprehensive student manual. The workshop is not specific industry or standard but ISO 9001 example controls will be used for convenience.
