Keynote Speaker: Oscar Combs
Presentation: Moving Beyond Commitment to Leadership
ISO 9001:2015 adds leadership of the quality management system as a responsibility of management. Leading requires management not to only provide resources, but to lead by example. Over my 20 years, I’ve often seen committed management that lacked leadership of their quality management system. The lack of leadership by management sends the wrong message to employees and the organization never reaches its full potential. Oscar will walk through the ISO 9001:2015 requirements of leadership and providing practical insight on moving beyond commitment to leadership!

Presentation: Introduction Blending Control and Quality Assurance Synergy
Presentation introduces principle control and Quality Assurance synergy in contemporary advanced production of liquid hydrocarbon products kerosene (jet fuel), gasoline and diesel fuels.
First the location and functional role of Blenders in a petrochemical refinery is positioned.
Next a quick overview of historical evolution since the 1950’s of the refinery’s Blending Process Unit.
In the final part the advanced synergy is outlined how in-line Quality Measuring Instruments (QMI’s) are used both for contemporary advanced blender control, in-line QMI validation (during the Blend run) and the certificate of product quality compliance.
