Presentation Description: Compliance with regulations, norms and standards as well as improved quality are all good reasons to have a calibration program, but those benefits must be weighed against costs. This presentation will demonstrate justification for a calibration program and inform the audience of data trends supporting this. It will also describe what components should be included in a calibration program, how frequently calibration cycles should be undertaken and the dangers of the equipment outside of calibration.
Methodology: We have charts, graphs and data that shows o Reliability & Repeatability studies o Historical accuracy of the tool o Total land life cycle cost of tool ownership o Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) data
Participants will be able to identify a list of best practices for a QMS program that addresses calibration pursuant to ISO Standards.
Participants will learn industry best practice for re-calibration intervals.
Participants will learn how data trends support a comprehensive calibration program.
