Bytes and pieces: News you can use

Quality failures: Major product failures such as those found in GM vehicles, often make the news, but many other failed products never receive this public attention. Lists of all recalled products, from kids’ hoodies to bean bag chairs and more, are updated regularly, with description of their failures.

Training events: Webinars, seminars, and other learning opportunities—including those offered by PQ Systems– are listed on the iSixSigma events calendar.

Comparing hospitals: This database offers data related to infection rates in hospitals and provides other useful comparisons. Download the database.

World conference presentation: Matt Savage, Support and Training Services Director for PQ Systems, will offer a session, “Spec Limits—What you don’t know can hurt you,” at the 2015 Lean & Six Sigma World Conference in Houston, March 11-12.
