This webinar will explore tools for improving your Quality Management System. CAPA (Corrective and Preventive Action), Root Cause Analysis, Risk Assessment, Six Sigma, Management Review and more are processes that should be in your Quality Management System. Many companies have weak processes or understand these processes individually but they don’t know how to put them together into an efficient and effective program for continuous improvement.
