Professional Experience

Barry Craner has nearly 40 years of experience in the management of scientists and engineers in applications in aerospace, Internet technologies, medical devices, and medicine. He has written several design control systems, and has consulted in areas of design control, quality system development, reliability engineering, and risk management. He has audited many medical device companies from 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-party perspectives.

An ASQ Fellow, past chair of the San Diego Section, and past deputy regional director for the ASQ Southern California Region, Barry holds certifications in Quality Engineering, Reliability Engineering, Quality Auditing, and Biomedical Auditing. He was also on the founding team to create the body of knowledge and examination questions for the ASQ CQA-CBA certification program. Barry has delivered numerous papers and presentations since 1986 on topics such as calibration systems, issues in virtual/startup companies, management auditing, managing contract design, risk management, supplier management, and training.

In 2008, he was awarded the Simon Collier Quality Award by the ASQ Los Angeles Section, and is on the MDDI list of “100 Notable People in the Medical Device Industry.” In 2010, Barry received the ASQ Biomedical Division Marvin Rosenbaum Quality Award, and the Stanley Marash Scholarship to deliver a paper on Risk Management at the 18th Annual Quality Congress in Tel Aviv, Israel. Barry retired in 2014 after 25 auditor days with ANVISA, TUV-Nord, California FDA, and the USFDA with one minor observation. He is now a full-time consultant, continuing to teach risk management at the graduate level at the University of California-Santa Cruz and California State University-Dominguez Hills as Adjunct Professor. He also teaches classes in auditing, design control, and risk management for the ASQ Silicon Valley Section. In 2015 the ASQ Biomedical Division created the Barrett C. Craner Scholarship for early QA practitioner education grants.
