Wednesday, May 18, 2022

5:30 PM – Mark Netzel, Problem Solving – Human Nature and Management.

Join us for our first in-person member meeting in two years!

Humans are natural problem solvers. It is in our nature for survival. We are always searching to make things better, easier, and faster for ourselves. Unfortunately, this human trait of wanting to solve problems quickly does not mean that we do it effectively.

The presenter will discuss some of the reasons why we do not always perform effective problem solving analysis and the role of quality management to help overcome some of these inherent human weaknesses.

Mark Netzel is the Vice-President of Quality at Die-Matic Corporation in Brooklyn Heights, Ohio.

He has over 30 years of manufacturing quality assurance/ control experience and has worked in roles as a Press Operator, Quality Inspector, Quality Engineer, Quality Manager, Director and Vice-President.

Mark has been involved with quality systems development, root cause/ corrective action development and all aspects of manufacturing quality from company objectives, strategic planning and employee training among others.

Mark has been the Education Chair for the Cleveland Section American Society for Quality (ASQ) since 2000 and has also worked as course Instructor in many areas.

Mark was a speaker/ presenter at the ISO World Conference in 2018 (Las Vegas) as well as at the 2019 and 2021 Fabtech Shows in Chicago as well as at the Precision Metalforming Association “Quality Roundtables” in 2020 and 2021.

He holds eight (8) different quality certificates through the ASQ, holds two (2) associates degree in “Business Management” and “Purchasing Management/ Supply Chain”.
