Technology adoption and advancements in business operations and increasing use of data analytics/ visualization are paving the way for audit functions to re-imagine the way in which audits are planned and executed. A transformed audit model includes analytics beyond sample-based testing to include full population analyses of audit-relevant data. Analytics enables greater assurance in identifying and sizing business risks, provides necessary audit evidence and enables auditors to offer deeper, relevant and actionable insights to business stakeholders. How are audit departments leveraging analytics? Are audit departments rating analytics as valuable in achieving their objectives? What analytics tools are most commonly used? What skills should auditors of the future consider adopting to grow and align with such a transforming model? Join us to discuss these and share your perspective or approach on this important topic at this section meeting.

November 2018 Section Meeting: Smart, Feedback Controlled, On-demand Manufacturing Systems To Enable Zero-defect Production

Smart, Feedback Controlled, On-demand Manufacturing Systems To Enable Zero-defect Production:
2018 Fall Mini Ott ASQ NJIT Quality Conference

Following this ASQ tradition, this Fall we are pleased to take our attendees to the new NJIT Makerspace, a $11.6 million hi-tech facility. During this even we’ll focus on how companies should focus on their digital quality transformation journey supported by smart feedback controlled manufacturing and fabrication systems to enable zero-defect / outstanding quality production. A very exciting topic, that can save huge amounts for any organization! The quality methods, tools and practical examples presented are applicable to almost any factory, organization / business.

In the first half of the program we’ll visit our new Makerspacer laboratory at NJIT to explain and demonstrate how smart, feedback controlled, on-demand manufacturing and fabrication systems can enable zero-defect production results.

In the second half of the program we’ll join another laboratory to perform our Quality Analysis and Modeling Methods Using Lean Six-sigma Statistical Tools by Paul G Ranky and his students.

Date & Time: Tuesday, 11/13/2018 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Location: This will take place in the NJIT GITC building, room 2305. Newark, NJ

The Project Management Institute‘s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) has several knowledge areas and processes that a Project Manager and project team to perform in order to effectively plan and execute any type of project. Since Project Managers are often pressured to complete projects within certain constraints while following the PMBOK project life cycle, it is important to effectively navigate through the several knowledge areas and processes associated with PMBOK. Lean Six Sigma tools and concepts can be utilized to navigate through the several knowledge areas and processes of PMBOK. The effective integration of these tools and concepts into the PMBOK project life cycle can also help to streamline the PMBOK project life cycle but also complete projects within their constraints but also exceed expectations.

ASQ March Member Gift: Lean Culture

Lean continues to grow in popularity and use, seen as a strategy and set of tools that assist with eliminating waste and increasing efficiency. However, organizations are realizing that the initial wins after implementing this strategy can be challenging to sustain over time.

Why? Well, as Peter Drucker so aptly put it “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”. In order to sustain wins and continuously improve, organizations must create a culture of quality and a culture of lean.

In this gift ASQ is sharing resources that will help you toward that end, to assist you in transforming your organization into a lean culture. Included are:

• New webcast, The Joy of Lean
• Complete e-book
• Additional webcasts, videos, and case studies

We hope this month’s bundle gives you a few more tools and resources to create or sustain a lean culture in your organization.

Register now for the NJIT Spring Ott Conference on Lean Six Sigma

Time is running outIt’s not to late to register for the for the ASQ NJIT Spring Ott Conference on Lean six-sigma Methods, Tools and Case Studies, organized by the NJIT ASQ Student Leadership Team join us on March 21, 2017

Several presenters will discuss 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.
