Quality Management Systems - mod.1 Quality in the food industry
Code: G600B-
Teacher:  Susanna Buratti
Year: 
Term: 
CFU: 
CFU subdivision: Lectures: 5
Practices in classroom: 1
Basic aims:  The course guides students to understand the concepts and the methods to improve a quality management system in food industries and laboratories and aims to develop the ability to work as part of a team which is involved in the development of an integrated management system according to international standards. Moreover the course provides the statistical instruments for the validation of the analytical methods and for the process control.
Acquired skills:  At the end of the course students will be able to identify the basic elements required for the development of a quality management system in food industries and laboratories and to use statistical instruments to validate the analytical methods and to measure the process capability.
Course contents:  Basic concepts related to the quality and management systems. Certification and accreditation system. ISO standards related to quality management system (UNI EN ISO 9001), food safety (UNI EN ISO 22000) and laboratories (ISO/IEC 17025). UNI EN ISO 19011: guidelines for auditing management systems. Private food standards: BRS IFS. Validation of analytical methods, statistical process control
