Hello to all ASQ Elyria members!

Join ASQ Elyria/Lorain section Thursday, December 13th at 6:00pm at the LCCC Spitzer Conference Center for dinner accompanied by a presentation on:

But what if the Sky Does Fall?:
Contingency Planning as a Response to Risk

We know that ISO 9001:2015 requires risk-based thinking in a number of ways. How do you respond to a risk that you cannot control?

One option is to accept that risk. A better response than simply stating you'll simply accept the risk is to make a Contingency Plan.

Contingency Plans serve to assure supply continuity are explicitly required to IATF 16949:2016 ( They may also be the right approach for other standards.

We will explore the concept of a risk-based contingency plan. We will then look at how to make a plan, some of the resources that you may use to help you and consider methods of testing the plan.
