Seminars & Conferences
CQAS offers seminars both on-site on contract basis and seminars that are open to everyone for registration.
Custom Training Programs
The advanced R & D group of a major international manufacturing organization recently turned to CQAS for assistance in developing a short course as an introduction to data mining. Due to the success of this initial course, a series of additional courses were developed in advanced data mining techniques. Our client wanted to provide advanced analytics education to their Lean Six Sigma Black Belt population and their R & D scientists and engineers. Additionally some employees from Operations needed exposure to data mining techniques as well.
The course developed by CQAS faculty provided the participants with a hands-on experience of the most commonly used techniques of modern data mining. The course was made non-technical by design, and all the concepts and techniques were introduced via real life case studies, most of which used benchmark data sets that have been used over many years to test the strengths and weaknesses of new data mining methods/techniques.
Education for Quality Assurance Employees
When a pharmaceutical manufacturer wanted to upgrade the skills of their quality assurance group, they turned to CQAS to develop a customized training program in Statistics Fundamentals for Process and Quality Control.
The objectives of the course developed by CQAS faculty were
- To make participants aware of the need for sound statistical principles in their work,
- To provide them with some fundamental methods that aligns with these principles.
By the end of course, participants were able to see the need for good statistical principles and methods, to distinguish a poorly-designed study from a well-designed study, and to use certain statistical methods to analyze data from well-designed studies.
