FREE COLD CHAIN ASSESSMENT AND AUDIT WEBINAR
The Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute is offering a free, one-hour webinar on Friday, March 9, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
Guiding a company through the development of an assessment, followed by the design and application of an audit upon process implementation is critical to the success of your cold chain. Assuring optimal product quality and minimal waste is more environmentally friendly and economical than increasing production to compensate for losses. This program is relevant to companies of all sizes as cold chain practices and standards are evolving into a regulatory tool and a supplier and retailer specific requirement.
This free, one-hour webinar will discuss the uses of cold chain assessments and audits as essential parts of your cold chain management process. We will discuss the differences between assessments and audits and how and when they should be deployed. We will highlight how a properly designed assessment can give you the information needed to take your cold chain to the next level. We also discuss how a cold chain audit will validate that controls and processes are working as required.
In addition to the above, you will receive a preview of our Cold Chain Assessment and Audit course topics:
- Understanding cold chain risks and their impact on product quality and loss
- The differences between the cold chain assessment and audit
- The design and uses of the assessment and the audit
- Major components of the assessment and the audit
