ASQ NJIT Fall Ott Conference – October 9th, 2017

Join us for the ASQ NJIT Fall Ott Conference on Visual Factory Management, Collaborative Robotics, Lean six-sigma Methods, Tools and Case Studies, organized by the NJIT ASQ Student Leadership Team: Michelle Vollo, President, Jovana Stijovic and Jelena Stijovic, Vice Presidents, Avery Bechtel, Program Chair, Philip Lelikov, Secretary, Terry Asante, Educational Chair, and Paul G Ranky, Founding Academic Advisor.

Several presenters will discuss Visual Factory Management, Collaborative Robotics, Lean six-sigma Methods, Tools and Case Studies in academia, as well as in industry. The core focus is Zero Defect Devices, Production, Service and Systems, including Root Cause Analysis (RCA). Root Cause Analysis is an essential first step when starting a six-sigma study for process improvement by controlling variations. RCA is generally applicable in situations where a defect occurs and there is a possibility that it might be beneficial to identify and address the real cause so that the situation does not occur again.

Every session will follow an interactive workshop style.

Event Date & Time: October 9, 2017, 6 to 9 pm

Location: NJIT (New Jersey Institute of Technology), Newark, NJ 07102, GITC building, room 2305
