FMEA VDA *2 Days* – HSO

Process FMEA

Participants will work together in small groups encouraging the understanding and application of process planning, developing FMEA’s on actual parts and processes. An intro to PQCTs is also covered.

“Eighty-five percent of the reasons for failure to meet customer expectations are related to the deficiencies in systems and processes … rather than to the employee” – Dr. W, Edwards Deming. This class teaches you how to anticipate potential failures and put controls in place to contain or prevent them.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn to create an FMEA using the block method
  • Identify potential failure modes and evaluate the effects on customers
  • Quantify the occurrence of failure modes and identify current controls
  • Establish the criteria for taking actions
  • Relate elements of the FMEA to the PQCT

Who Should Attend

  • associates working on change point control, new model associates, process planning associates
