UPCOMING WEBINARS

The ASQ Reliability and Risk Division is pleased to present a regular series of reliability, maintainability and risk webinars featuring leading international practitioners, academics, and consultants. Our goal is to provide a forum for the continuing education of reliability professionals. To date we have provided over 150 webinars!

Webinars can be viewed live by simply signing up for free. All past webinars are archived and available for everyone!

We encourage you to attend the webinars and events, learn something and network! If you are interested in presenting a webinar please contact us today!

ASQ RRD Series: Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is a system for defining and communicating engineering dimensions and tolerances in an unambiguous way. It uses a symbolic language on engineering drawings and computer-generated three-dimensional solid models that explicitly describe nominal geometry and its allowable variation that can only be interpreted in one way. By removing any possible misinterpretation or alternate interpretation of a drawing, GD&T eliminates the often encountered "return to supplier, does not meet requirements" only to have the supplier send it back noting "all requirements met". 12 Mar, 202012:00pm EDT1 hour

ASQ RRD Series: Integrating FMEAs, FMEDAs and Fault trees For Functional Safety FMEAs traditionally have only incorporated single point faults. In this ground breaking presentation of the Omnex Method, the functional safety FMEA will be shown to include both single and multi-point faults and incorporate safety mechanisms as preventive controls. As the FMEA is filled out, the FMEDA will be populated, providing consistency between the FMEDA and FMEA techniques. The FMEA of the hardware is at the hardware system level, while the FMEDA is at the component level and the failure modes of the FMEDA are component failure modes. If the FMEA is completed using the AIAG-VDA FMEA, where the higher level, focus level, and lower levels are related and there is a cause and effect relationship between the failure modes, then the FTA can also be developed from the FMEA. In this way, the FMEA, FMEDA and FTA are linked documents and the FMEDA and FTA provide the single point fault, multi-point fault, and the "Probabilistic Metric for random Hardware Failures" (PMHF) metrics in a consistent manner.
Join us for a presentation of a ground breaking methodology of conducting safety analysis and hardware metrics for functional safety using linked FMEA, FMEDA and FTAs.

ASQ RRD Series: Process FMEA Ratings – Deepening the Understanding

24 Feb, 202012:00pm EST1 hour

Convert to my timezone

On February 6, 2020 the webinar “FMEA Ratings – What They Mean and Why Most People Set Them Incorrectly” was presented by Richard Harpster. The objective of the webinar was to help people understand the purpose of each of the Design and Process FMEA Ratings and why most people set them incorrectly. Attendees were taught many important things about Process FMEA ratings including but not limited to:
1. most popular FMEA manuals in publication provide incorrect information on how to set the occurrence ratings in the Process FMEA;
2. the importance of the Class column in the Process FMEA;
3. why design engineers should never specify “Special Characteristics” for a Process FMEA;
4. how to use the Process FMEA to prioritize the process problems identified in the FMEA to work on;
5. how to use the Process FMEA to determine when a process should be released for use;
6. the fundamentals of the new AIAG VDA Action Priority (AP) Rating for the Process FMEA that is intended to replace RPN rating in the Process FMEA and why it does not work;
7. the new AIAG VDA FMEA ratings systems for the Process FMEA and why if used the effectiveness of your Process FMEAs will be severely degraded.
The webinar was positively received with many people expressing that they learned a lot. Many people requested the slide pack so they could further study the information provided.
The only negative comment received was that it was too much information for one hour. Due to the tremendous interest shown, the ASQ Reliability Division and Harpco® Systems has decided to present two separate one-hour seminars for the Design FMEA Ratings and Process FMEA Ratings.
During the “Process FMEA Ratings – Deepening the Understanding” webinar Process FMEA rating key concepts presented in the original webinar will be reviewed. The additional time will used to present actual Process FMEA examples to demonstrate some of the concepts. We are also asking potential attendees to send questions that they would like to see answered during the presentation to ri
