Sensory Quality Programs

Examine the most used methods for sensory focused quality control and assurance panels and discuss the complex challenges of developing, instituting and maintaining effective sensory quality programs
Course Description
Explore current methods for evaluation of Sensory Quality throughout the production and distribution environment.  Be guided through the complex challenges of developing, instituting, and maintaining a Sensory Quality Program at the plant level.  Learn how to identify key elements of a high quality program, be exposed to a variety of sensory tools, and discuss how to influence key stakeholders.
Advantages, limitations, recommended applications, and steps for developing programs for methods including Attribute Descriptive, Difference from Control, and In/Out will be discussed with a focus on practical use while maintaining scientific integrity.  Real-world examples are provided for quality assessment of incoming raw materials, in-process production, finished products, and post-distribution.
Participants are encouraged to bring their individual challenges and situations for a roundtable discussion with the instructors and the group.
Who Should Attend
QC/QA and sensory professionals responsible for implementing in-plant sensory programs, as well as for plant management and technical personnel (sensory coordinators and quality professionals) who are responsible for the routine operation of the established program and use of generated data in decision making. Technical sensory and quality professionals will benefit from the in-depth discussion of the role of Sensory QC/QA within the larger context of Quality.
