Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Quality management training will show you how to use methods you probably already have in place to create effective preventive action. Linking these on-going tools to your CAPA program will increase the benefit.


Many organizations focus on improving root cause problem solving and tracking issues and corrective actions. That’s a good beginning to a CAPA program. But many organizations don’t effectively implement Preventive Action.

This Analytical Methods Validation will show you how to use methods you probably already have in place to create effective preventive action. Linking these on-going tools to your CAPA program will increase the benefit. These preventive action methods include: FMEA, Lean Production, Six Sigma, Tolerance Design, and Standard Work. Are you taking Preventive Action credit and maximizing the benefit for the work you’re already doing?

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • ISO CAPA requirements.
  • The need to focus on preventive action, as much or more than corrective action.
  • What counts as preventive action.
  • Understanding elements of FMEA, Lean, Six Sigma, Tolerance Design, and Standard Work as they pertain to preventive action.
  • How to link preventive actions to a CAPA program.
  • How to work smarter, not harder, to reduce the need for corrective action.

Who will benefit:

In this receding economy, companies must work more effectively to eliminate mistakes and thus the need for corrective action. Full benefit must be extracted from continuous improvement programs, product development, and operations. Using these existing programs to focus on reducing the need for corrective actions improves the effectiveness of everyone’s work.
  • Quality managers and engineers responsible for a CAPA program
  • Product designers
  • Operations managers
  • Supervisors
