4 Obstacles to Overcome When Implementing an Electronic QMS

Posted by Tim Reinhardt on Jul 12, 2019 9:19:00 AM

Over the course of the past twenty years, I have steadily reduced my reliance on paper items, eliminating checks, airline tickets, maps, personal calendars, pay stubs and files, freeing me to function with only a laptop and smart phone.  And yet, many of the Quality Departments I work with, from various high-tech industries throughout the world, have not yet embraced new technologies.  They still rely on inefficient manual paper systems to monitor the performance of their process.  Why the avoidance of modernity?

Today's savvy quality leaders know that securing executive support and buy-in are key factors  in successfully selecting and implementing an enterprise quality management system. Convincing skeptical C-suite colleagues of the strategic implications and costs of  the current state can be challenging, especially in documenting both hard costs and intangible benefits/risks.   It is necessary to speak in terms that they understand and appreciate, starting with Return on Investment (ROI).

GMP Training - FDA is watching. Are you?

Posted by Jeff Thomas on Jun 7, 2016 11:11:00 AM

GMP Training - Are You Watching it as Closely as the FDA Requires?

Reasons for a Heightened Focus on Training and Quality Control  

Training programs are under the FDA’s microscope because insufficient employee training has been identified as a root cause of defects. Additionally, the changing composition of the manufacturing workforce has resulted in an overall lower level of experience among production employees. As layoffs continue to occur and seasoned employees approach retirement age, the following changes have resulted:  

  • A loss of experienced employees
  • A growing percentage of contract workers
  • An influx of new hires with little work experience

It is not easy for companies to compensate for this loss of manufacturing expertise, especially as companies feel pressured to reduce spending across the board. Bolstering training and educationprograms therefore becomes a necessity for companies seeking to maintain quality production.  

How to Strengthen Your Company’s Training and Educational Initiatives  

With the FDA’s increased focus on employee training, it is imperative that companies devote attention to improving their employee

How Many Combinations Does It Take For Your Training Matrix To Fail?

Posted by Jeff Thomas on May 31, 2016 11:00:00 AM

At what point does an Excel spreadsheet management system begin to fail for your training program? 

Variety in Data

The more data you include in a training program, the more information your management team has to track in Excel. Once a program gets more than two parameters, additional data becomes increasingly difficult for a manual spreadsheet to manage. 

Even if the number of variables is only of two types, as the numbers of those increase, the information becomes unwieldy and difficult to manage. A small organization training 5 staff on a limited number of SOPs (200) will still have over 1000 entries to manage. Manual data management becomes difficult to do, and even with limited functionality in Excel, a robust training and data management system will overwhelm any spreadsheet used.
