During this webinar, Sjoerd Remmers (Training & Education team leader at Normec Foodcare) and Arnold Verhagen (trainer / consultant at Symbol) make the connection between the certification of quality systems in the food sector and the introduction of TPM, Lean or Six Sigma. We see that at many companies in the food sector these are two separate routes. Partly as a result of customer requirements, a lot of effort is being put into ISO, BRC, IFS or FSSC certifications. In addition, the organization is often busy implementing programs such as Continuous Improvement with TPM, Lean or Six Sigma. For this purpose, for example, day starts are organized and improvement projects are developed. While a well-functioning Continuous Improvement system is a requirement for certification.
Put the combination
We see problems in practice when these pathways are organized separately from one another. First, working on two parallel trajectories takes extra energy. In addition, the Quality Department (responsible for certification) is often insufficiently aware of efforts around Continuous Improvement. Third, we see in the implementation of Continuous Improvement that insufficient account is taken of the requirements for this from food certification.
Standards and Continuous Improvement in practice
In this webinar, Sjoerd explains what is required in the ISO, BRC, IFS and FSSC standards regarding Continuous Improvement. Arnold then explains from the CIMM model in which phase of Continuous Improvement the requested aspects are addressed. Then we cover some actual customer cases, showing how it works in practice.
This webinar is intended for any professional involved in the implementation of quality systems or continuous improvement programs. For quality employees, quality assurance managers and continuous improvement specialists in food.
