[webinar] (CAPA) The Most Important Process of the Quality Management System
CAPA is a process of the quality management system whose purpose is to identify and define problems that relate traditionally to poor quality but can also include other forms of waste, or gaps between the current performance state and a desired or ideal future state. The latter feature allows its application to lean manufacturing and the removal of all forms of waste from the workplace. It can also be used to address occupational health and safety (OH&S) issues which gives it a role in ISO 45001:2018.
Areas Covered in the Session:
1. CAPA is among the foremost sources of ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 audit findings, and FDA Form 483 observations. Roughly a third of IATF 16949 findings are related to CAPA, and the same goes for FDA Form 483 observations.
2. The traditional application of CAPA is to poor quality but this is but one of the seven wastes of the Toyota production system. The other six wastes are (1) asymptomatic, (2) usually built into the job, and (3) often more costly than poor quality. We can however treat the other six wastes as non-conformances (or gaps between current and ideal performance) to initiate CAPA and get a problem definition.
