Effective Design Review

Our presentor: Jerry Valenti

Jerry has a BSEE from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and is a licensed Professional Engineer in the state of California.  His experience includes working in aerospace and defense, alternative energy, and medical device industries.  His background includes design engineering and design management, and the test, verification, and validation of embedded systems.  He presently works for CareFusion, a medical device manufacturer headquartered in San Diego, where he works as a Senior Principal Design Assurance Engineer.  He has recently re-joined ASQ.  One of his goals is to obtain re-certifications for CRE, CQSE, and his Six Sigma Black Belt.


Jerry’s presentation will be on ‘Effective Design Reviews’.  The formal Design Review is not just a discrete event that satisfies a schedule milestone.  It is a structured process that ensures design completeness.  An effective Design Review provides a systematic assessment of design results providing confirmation that a design is ready to move on to the next stage of development and implementation.  Jerry will be sharing several techniques for mistake proofing designs.  In addition to describing a process for accomplishing effective Design Reviews, several examples of in-effective Design Reviews will also be presented.
