Summary of Expertise: Listed with other top experts in: 
QUALITY CONTROL; QUALITY ASSURANCE; SUPPLIER QUALITY IMPROVEMENT. Expert has 28 years of experience as a supplier quality engineer. He has developed strategic quality plans for annual purchases of $100 million which resulted in reduction of defective materials from 15% to 0.3% within 10 years, an annual savings of over $10 million. This was accomplished with a reduction in the incoming inspection and vendor engineering department from 135 to 17 people with an additional annual savings of over $11 million.

QUALITY AUDITING; ISO 9000 REGISTRATION SYSTEM. Expert developed and implemented a Corporate Lead Auditing Team that provided auditing services to 22 corporate divisions and many suppliers to the corporation. Results since then (1992) led to a dozen corporate organizations and several suppliers that have been registered to ISO 9000 on the first attempt. He is an ASQC Certified Quality Auditor and has been certified by the RAB as a quality system auditor.

STATISTICAL COMPUTER SOFTWARE. Expert developed computer software for quality technicians, engineers, and production personnel to perform everyday quality analyses such as capability studies, correlation analysis, quality distribution analysis, and sample size determination. This software was adopted throughout the corporation and by many international suppliers. He has also taught corporate statistical quality engineering programs.

QUALITY MANAGEMENT; QUALITY IMPROVEMENT; ISO 9000 SERIES QUALITY SYSTEM STANDARD. From the expertise he gained throughout his career, Expert published a "Supplier Self-Assessment Survey" which was used by suppliers and corporate manufacturing divisions to both evaluate their current systems and to gain insight into what activities needed to be accomplished to bring systems up to the ISO 9000 level. His book also explains techniques used to measure quality improvement. Expert also published a quality system manual template that was fully in compliance with ISO 9000 and which could then be updated in each individual situation.

STATISTICAL PROCESS CONTROL; STATISTICAL PROCESS CONTROL SOFTWARE. Expert developed and implemented a number of quality sampling schemes that used statistical techniques to both improve outgoing manufacturing quality and reduce costs including the cost of quality overhead (sample costs, inspectors, test equipment, etc.). He developed computer software to collect, summarize, and analyze quality test data to provide real-time SPC as well as post-run analyses for detecting improvement potential. This is collected in a format for electronic data submittal to be used during subsequent processes to detect sources of manufacturing problems.

ISO 9000 IMPLEMENTATION; ISO 9000 QUALITY SYSTEM DOCUMENTATION. Expert developed an ISO 9000 quality system awareness seminar which was given to more than 100 corporate groups, suppliers, and industry conferences, both domestically and in Europe and Mexico. He can answer in-depth questions regarding ISO 9000 implementation and documentation.
