Recently, I am learning about utilizing food quality tools and Six Sigma processes to improve effectiveness, meeting customer expectation and satisfaction.It is challenging theoretically. not to mention applying it to the real world solution.Quality tools are so attractive that it helps identify issues, severity and what can and needs to be done about it.
Implementation requires lots of follow-up and up-keep.
These are all confusing terms: verification, verification of monitoring activities and validation. I finally got them right.... phew.
Looks like SQF documents isn't as easy getting my practitioner test done. Lots of decoding and attention being put into these documents. Got through just verification and validation. Long way to go :)
Commitment for food safety and quality is not an easy task. It could be the hardest job, to balance between persuading and reaching that consensus that often get challenged by everyone else. That is and has been a part of my task.
Been working on my audit and kept finding gaps with opportunities for improvement but I am glad there is some support shown at the production level at the very least. This is what I dedicated my time and life for. Others would see me as crazy but this is what I am getting myself into.
