Creating a robust supplier quality management and control operation is not for the faint of heart. It’s critical for companies to comply with the regulatory bodies they face. It’s also very complicated.

But here’s how FDAnews can help.

Noted quality expert Jim Shore (with co-author John A. Freije) has literally written the book on supplier management. The book, Proactive Supplier Management in the Medical Device Industry (2016: Quality Press), sets forth a new approach to supplier quality management. On June 20-21, Shore will teach its precepts and methods in a standout workshop available only from FDAnews.

Attendees will discover better ways to:

  • Transform ornery suppliers into team players
  • Ease out unneeded suppliers while leaving the door open for their return
  • Build supply-chain efficiency and overall profits
  • Determine if supplier consolidation would be beneficial
  • And, most important, cut patient injuries, deaths and lawsuits

The book, which attendees will take home, is 100 pages chock full of charts, graphs and real world advice on how to create this very complicated operation. Whether new to this or an experienced hand attendees will find something of value.

Attendees will get:

  • An overview of ISO standard and FDA regulation similarities and differences
  • An example of supplier quality system detection
  • A step-by-step guide to a weighted approach to determine risk
  • An Assessment of a process control plan to determine where the focus should be
  • And much more.

This interactive two-day workshop features learning by doing. Attendees take part in small-group exercises that put theory into practice, discover problems colleagues face and join with them in working out solutions.
