More About FMEA Training
The growing phenomenon of automotive OEMs adopting global platforms with similar subsystems, components, and materials is addressed within the automotive supply chain by the development of product family processes (processes that can produce several part numbers to several customers using common manufacturing processes and shared resources). When a manufacturing quality problem occurs in any “product family process” it brings about the potential risk for shipment of defective parts not only for one, but for several customer products, making technical risk mitigation related to manufacturing quality crucial for the automotive industry. This challenge cannot be addressed without a robust methodology that takes into consideration all potential failure modes to all potential applications.
The new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook is a critical update for the industry that addresses this, and other challenges the automotive industry is facing. The concept of robustness exists throughout all sections of the new PFMEA development approach, which is presented in the new AIAG & VDA Handbook. The Handbook contains a structured method for identifying the process steps, their functions, requirements, and potential failure modes.
This 2 day course biased towards process, covers everything you need to successfully transition from the AIAG FMEA 4th edition to the new AIAG & FMEA Handbook. On completion you will be empowered to help your company achieve excellence through improved performance, and ultimately bottom line profit.
Some of the major areas covered include:
- Overview of the Major Changes, Improvements, and Benefits of the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook. Detailed introduction chapter emphasizing and clarifying the foundations necessary to develop a robust FMEA.
- Applying 7-Steps approach – a more instrumental, integrated with lessons learned, and error-proofing driven method to develop FMEAs
- PFMEA 1st Step – Planning and Preparation.
- PFMEA 2nd Step – Structure Analysis.
- PFMEA 3rd Step – Function Analysis.
- PFMEA 4th Step – Failure Analysis.
- PFMEA 5th Step – Risk Analysis.
- PFMEA 6th Step – Optimization.
- PFMEA 7th Step – Communication
- Process Flow, PFMEA, Control Plan, and Work Instruction Linkages
- Comparing a PFMEA prepared using AIAG FMEA 4th Edition Manual to a PFMEA prepared using the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook
- PFMEA effectiveness, efficiency, and linkage to the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ)
- Transition Implementation Plan from AIAG FMEA 4th Edition to AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook
- Describe major changes, improvements, and benefits on the foundations of Process FMEA execution when comparing AIAG FMEA 4th Edition to the new AIAG & VDA FMEA manuals
- Analyse major changes and improvements adopted in the new AIAG & VDA FMEA handbook by completing a detailed comparison between AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook to the AIAG 4th Edition manual
- Exemplify major changes, improvements, and benefits of Process FMEAs execution when comparing a PFMEA prepared using AIAG FMEA 4th Edition Manual to a PFMEA prepared using the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook
- Identify the major changes and improvements when evaluating the content of a Process FMEA prepared using AIAG FMEA 4th Edition Manual compared to a PFMEA prepared using the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook
- Evaluate the consistency of PFMEA application cases
- Measuring PFMEA effectiveness, efficiency, and linkage to the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ)
