Receiving Inspection – Inspector Training

Description:
The TIPQA Receiving Inspection Module (RI) automates the inspection processing of received materials through manufacturing and/or engineering operations. RI prompts receiving inspectors to enter inspection information entirely on-line.

This training will cover a basic, sample inspection process for both Receiving Inspection and a Source Inspection to demonstrate the simplicity of the module.  Examples for failing an inspection will follow with a lesson on how to create a Nonconformance from a failed inspection.

Prerequisites:
none

Target Audience:
Receiving Inspectors, Inspection Supervisors, TIPQA RI Module administrators

Nonconformance End User Training

Description:
The TIPQA  Nonconformance Module (NC) automates the identification and processing of nonconforming material in manufacturing or engineering operations. NC documents the history of nonconforming material fully on-line, taking the place of multi-part forms mailed throughout the company. NC eliminates lost paperwork, improves accuracy by validating data entry against master records, and speeds the processing of nonconforming material.

This training will cover a basic, sample nonconformance process flow to demonstrate the simplicity of the module.  Various examples of different types of nonconformances will be demonstrated including those with and without Task planning, generating a child nonconformance.

Prerequisites:
none

Target Audience:
Quality Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, Receiving Inspectors, In Process Inspectors, Inspection Supervisors, TIPQA administrators, anyone who might write a nonconformance

Corrective Action for Authors

Description:
The TIPQA Corrective Action Module (CA) automates a formal, closed loop corrective action system for resolving quality problems encountered in the course of normal operations.
