Section 0707 virtual meetings have been previously held on WebEx. The platform will be switching to Zoom, which has similar features. Meeting links will still be sent out via email. Be sure you’ve opted in to section 0707 communication on your account on asq.org to receive the meeting invitation emails.

At the October meeting, the discussion topic was Ishikawa (Fishbone) Diagrams, a type of cause and effect diagram. Common areas of focus include:

  • Human Factors or People
  • Methods or Processes
  • Environment
  • Measurement
  • Materials
  • Machines/Tools and Maintenance

Discussion included how leadership, policy, and biases play a role as causes. Have you ever used an Ishikawa Diagram to prevent a problem rather than react to a problem?

At the February 2020 meeting, Faribault Foods welcomed ASQ Section 0707 members to their Tucson facility with a company presentation, discussion, and tour to demonstrate how they apply quality principles to manufacture canned food. Discussion topics included SAP, quality standards, and statistical process control.

Faribault Foods is a company with a vision “to be a leading, high-quality food company that provides the greatest customer satisfaction through products and services based on the development of highly skilled, committed personnel and the use of cutting edge technology to create new products.” (https://www.faribaultfoods.com/about.php)

ASQ Section 0707 thanks Faribault Foods with special thanks to Omid Arani for guiding the tour and Alfonso Abad for giving the presentation.

Join us in March to advance your skills in quality!

Hello Fellow ASQ Certified Professionals,

In case we have not yet met at a recent ASQ function, please let me introduce myself. My name is Ron Gryniewicz, and I am the new Education Chair for ASQ-Tucson Chapter. ASQ-Tucson has not had an Education Chair or a schedule of educational courses for some time; the ASQ-Tucson Board and I would like to change that fact. However, before we can offer classes, we need to fill our “bullpen” with capable instructors.

If you are interested in joining ASQ Tucson’s team of instructors, please complete the Instructor Application and submit it to me. In addition, please provide a summary of your credentials or experience in teaching, presenting seminars/workshops, and other similar information.

Do feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns that you may have.

Ron Gryniewicz
ASQ-Tucson Education Chair
