Regular calibration based on a thorough process-risk assessment helps stabilize production while conserving time and resources. Getting this schedule right is important. That's because testing too infrequently risks undetected accuracy problems, while testing too often interrupts production.
The 2015 revision of ISO 9001 has brought a major change regarding the risk-based approach that is found throughout the entire standard. Importantly, this change also impacts the calibration process. The revision acknowledges that the most important way to ensure that measurements deliver quality is to choose the right schedule to periodically re-calibrate your scale and a procedure based on your process risk.
This new 15-minute webinar helps you optimize calibration schedules to save time – and optimize scale tolerances to save up to 20 percent of valuable raw materials.
In Part 1 of this Lean Lab approach webinar you will be introduced to the basic concepts of Lean Laboratory and the 10 fields of improvement, which enable you to assess the current status of your lab and identify where processes can be optimized to improve efficiency.
