Non-Members Fee: $175.00

Brought to you by the Montana Photonics Industry Alliance with support from MSU Academic Technology and Outreach

Taking a technical product from R&D into production is challenging and involves certain common problems-seemingly unreasonable customers, unreliable suppliers, internal knowledge, disorganized information systems, production glitches, and much more. These problems have known solutions-powerful processes and tools that you can quickly start to deploy to reduce crisis management, stress, and lost profits.

This class was created by local photonics industry experts to introduce quality concepts and practices in a framework that is easily understood by engineers and management - stripped of jargon and put in plain terms. Sign up today and get control of your business!

You will learn about the practices and processes your organization can adopt in order to grow into a mature manufacturer of high-tech high-quality products. The seminar is especially suited for middle and senior managers who have responsibility for the performance of functional units or the organization as a whole.

We will cover all the following processes:
- Design
- New Product Introduction
- Engineering Change Control
- Manufacturing Flow
- Document Management
- Equipment Management
- Discrepant Material
- Service Return
- Supplier Management
- Training
- Problem Solving
- System Monitoring

Then conclude with The System: How to put it all together
