What's the last thing you ever want to be in your food? Pathogens. These tiny bacteria, viruses and microorganisms can cause disease and infection for anyone who comes in contact with them. It's especially vital for manufacturers in the food and beverage industry to ensure food safety in their products, so their consumers don't get sick. 

Nothing in life is perfect though; 100% prevention is nearly impossible. If and when food safety is compromised, a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) can be used to help.

Each year on Memorial Day Americans pause to remember the fallen and honor their sacrifice. For Memorial Day the one thing that matters most is sacrifice.
Memorial Day originally began as a day of remembrance for soldiers who had died fighting in the Civil War, and over time the day has grown to honor all American military personnel who have died fighting to protect this country.

Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.


"All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on."   — Henry Ellis, British psychologist...

Determining Patient Length of Stay with Predictive Analytics in Minitab

Length of stay, defined as the time between hospital admission and discharge measured in days, is an aspect of care that can be costly for most healthcare systems if not approached properly. Optimizing patient flow, on the other hand, facilitates beneficial treatment, minimal waiting, minimal exposure to risks associated with hospitalization, and efficient use of resources such as hospital beds, medical equipment and available clinical staff.
