ISO 22000 requires the analysis of results of verification activities, and SQF and BRC require annual validation of the Food Safety Management System. The analysis of the data for either of these two activities can be easily done using SPC.
John Surak and I presented a poster on this topic at the IAFP annual meeting this summer (http://slidesha.re/uBnW1i ) and John will present a webinar on the topic, “Applying Process-based Analytics to Audit Results for Process Management and Improvement” on December 15, 2011 ( http://www.nwasoft.com/resources/webinars/applying-process-based-analytics-audit-results-process-management-and-improvement ) .
We are looking for additional data which to develop case studies which demonstrate the power of SPC based analytics in conducting verification activities in the food industry. If you wish to participate in the project contact John Surak at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jeffery Cawley at email@example.com.
