Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA)an AIAG Core Tools training course from The QC Group
Failure Mode and Effect Analysis is an excellent quality tool to use with any quality system. The benefit of a Design FMEA comes in the prevention of failures due to design. You will learn how to apply this powerful tool in your organization.
Anyone who might participate in a Design FMEA, including engineering, quality, manufacturing, purchasing, marketing, project management, and supplier or customer representatives.
Six Sigma, Lean, Core Tools
Design FMEA is a product design verification activity that can help avoid a large percentage of product design problems before the design is finalized. People from quality, manufacturing, engineering, purchasing or marketing will benefit from this seminar.
The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) FMEA manual is used as the reference materials for this class. Copies of the manuals can be obtained through AIAG via their website www.aiag.org. Membership in AIAG has its benefits; if your company is not a member of AIAG, The QC Group can provide manuals at additional cost.
In order to have the highest likelihood of success with this class, we encourage the students to obtain their reference materials as soon as possible in order to have plenty of time to familiarize themselves prior to the class date.
