蔡文教授追思会

2021115日,國家級有突出貢獻專家、中國人工智能學會可拓學專業委員會榮譽主任、廣東工業大學可拓學與創新方法研究所榮譽所長、可拓學創始人蔡文教授在廣州因病逝世,享年82歲。為了共同表達我們的思念,緬懷和追憶蔡文教授對學生的關愛、對學術的堅守和對中國原創學科可拓學事業的貢獻,繼承和發揚他豐富而深刻的學術思想,可拓學專業委員會擬定於2022122日星期六19:30-21:00在線上(騰訊會議,會議號:784 185 759)舉辦“蔡文教授追思會”。恭請蔡教授的親屬、生前好友、同事和學生參加。


專家發言環節,有李幼平院士、鐘義信教授(中國人工智能學會前理事長)及劉巍教授。


之後我代表港澳學者及香港品質學會發言。我用對蔡文教授的記念文以四個階段來回顧這五年來由認識、學習至推廣可拓學來分享其中的點滴。


自由發言時間,田英傑教授和趙燕偉教授分別發言。最後楊春燕教授作總結發言,她是在1996年開始跟蔡文教授一起研究可拓學。楊春燕教授認同其他專家發言及原創不易要不斷努力發展可拓學。


追思会後,我們開始可拓學專業委員會工作會議來探討之後的工作。

Remember Dr. CO Chan, ISSC and CityU EngD Society

Just received a sad news from HKSQ former Chairman Dr. Aaron Tong that Dr. CO Chan (President, International Six Sigma Council (ISSC) and founder member of CityU EngD Society) passed away on 1st Jan 2022. We lost a quality guru in Hong Kong. We, Hong Kong Society for Quality (HKSQ) and CityU EngD Society expressed hearty condolences to Dr. CO Chan’s family, friends and colleagues. Dr. CO Chan is Six Sigma expert, as well as, one of eight founding members of CityU EngD Society in 2005. The photo shows that Dr. CO Chan (Right) presented a luck draw gift to me during Asia Quality Best Practice Award (AQBPA) Ceremony in 2015.


We met many times in quality related activities especially related to Six Sigma such as HKQAA Seminar related to Lean Sigma Green/Black Belt.  He is ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt and has over 20 years of industrial, training and consultancy experience in the field of business process improvement. He worked with Motorola in the 1990s where he gained first hand perspective and intensive exposure in the application of Six Sigma. His thesis had also studied about SMEs implementation of Lean and Six Sigma.


We almost met every year in ISSC events including Asia Quality Management Symposium, Annual Dinner and Asia Quality Best Practice Award (AQBPA) Ceremony. I would like to summarize all ISSC activates that I participated in the following reference links.

RIP Dr. CO Chan

The Sabbath and funeral was held in church on 21st Jan 2022. 



Flowers from HKSQ, SGS and City EngD Society.

SGS ISO/IEC 17025 LMS Internal Auditor Training 2022

I was the instructor to train the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Laboratory Management System (LMS) Internal Auditor Training Course on 10th & 12th Jan 2022. Since SGS is HKSQ corporate member, we had cooperated for long time in different events.  


During the training course, I briefed the new and major changes of ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and HOKLAS requirements, as well as, audit characteristic and competence.  Since it is a workshop, many exercises for participant practice.


One of them is used cards to construct audit process.


Each participant need to present their finding during the mock audit.


After during simulation audit case, they had presented their audit plan, audit scope & objective, audit findings, CAR and audit report to demonstrate their learning achievement. After that we took a photo with their work for memory.

HKIE Seminar for 17 UNESCO Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) and Hong Kong Institute of Education for Sustainable Development (HiESD) of UNESCO Hong Kong Association co-organized a seminar on “How Engineering Professionals Promote the 17 SDGs” on 7 January 2022. The Hong Kong Society for Quality (HKSQ) is the supporting organization.


Prof. Ir. Dr Gryphon SOU, associate VP of UNESCO HK and Prof. Ir Dr Aaron TONG, former chairman of HKSQ and HKIE-MIS division, shared lots of insights on sustainable development and how engineering supports sustainability in terms of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We do believe that Engineers will need to play an important role in making them happen by leveraging existing and widely deployed technologies and future developments to provide the tools for integrated solutions for sustainable development.


HKSQ members Dr. Vincent Fung and Dr. YC Chau had attended the seminar.
