CORRECTIVE ACTION AND PREVENTIVE ACTION
INTRODUCTION FOR CORRECTIVE ACTION AND PREVENTIVE ACTION
This practical, hands-on 2-days course teaches participants how to use structured and effective steps to correcting and preventing problems or nonconformities that exist anywhere in their organization. It can help your organization satisfy management system requirements for effective corrective action.
Corrective Action and Preventive Action are primary Quality Management System (QMS) processes that have challenged most organizations. Organizations often do not get the benefits or optimum performance out of the Corrective Action or Preventive Action process due to lack of understanding of the value, failure to invest the time required or because they are simply overwhelmed with the tasks. This course will cut through all of these roadblocks.
OBJECTIVE CORRECTIVE ACTION AND PREVENTIVE ACTION
- Method: To have an in-depth CAPA method. Provide a clear causal understanding of the event and can see the causal relationships. In a systematic, organized and clear in manner.
- Tools/process: Share technique/skill of asking questions and develop good sense of logical thinking process – questions to stimulate remembering not justification (5 Whys method, Logical Analysis tool etc.)
