November 15, 2018 Dinner Meeting
Motivation and Productivity in the Information Age

Presented by
Rick Fay

Times have certainly changed over the last 5 decades. One could argue that there are many contributing factors that have driven this change. A worldwide economy versus a domestic one, businesses changing their focus, making product quicker and faster to meet customers’ needs, and the continuous innovation in electronics just to briefly name a few. This impact has surely affected motivation and productivity of all employees involved. During this meeting, Rick will discuss the impact of both motivation and productivity, and its effect on how we make quality products.

Rick Fay holds a BS degree in Civil Engineering from Manhattan College. He is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. Rick was employed as a quality manager in the lead frames department when Texas Instruments was manufacturing in Attleboro, MA. He is currently employed as a quality engineer by Interplex Etch Logic also in Attleboro. Most of us know Rick as a long-term member of our Section and as the best CQE instructor in this region. Over the decades, Rick has taught and coached hundreds of professionals in the CQE body of knowledge. Rick has over 35 years in manufacturing supervision, quality engineering and management. He is an ASQ Certified Quality Engineer and is supporting our Section on the Education Committee.
