I was told in late 2010 that I would finally get some help in the Quality department. I am in my late 50's and its time the company let me start training someone on the basics. I have been with this medical device company for 18 years and have so much to share.
The Dir of Ops has got it in his head that we need a Quality Engineer because there is so much data that we don't trend. The company Pres. is on my side and wants me to train someone.
I don't see a QE wanting to help with the basics such as auditing or doc control.
So what does a Quality Engineer do in other companies?
Quality engineer can do internal and supplier audit, manage quality methodologies ( FMEA, Problem solving , Control plan, Benchmarking,SPC, MSA etc...), make training on quality matter and support organization in implementing QMS with ISO TS , 9001 certification.
Quality eng can also manage product quality with customers.
