|ASQ RRD Series: FMEA Ratings – What They Mean and Why Most People Set Them Incorrectly
The primary purpose of the Design FMEA and Process FMEA is to allow companies to efficiently manage risk. No company has unlimited resources. When properly used the Design FMEA and Process FMEA can help companies target the use of their limited resources to achieve the greatest reduction in design and manufacturing related risk. Yet there are many examples of incorrect population of the templates.|
For one, every commonly used FMEA Manual/Standard/Guideline that I know of in publication including the latest AIAG VDA FMEA Handbook instructs the users to populate one of the most important rating columns in both the Design FMEA and Process FMEA incorrectly. Special Characteristics (SC) will also be covered, to reveal that DFMEA SC designation is inappropriate and ineffective.
After attending the webinar, I guarantee you will appreciate the disclaimer found in the beginning of most FMEA manuals which states that the rating tables represent guidelines only and the creator of the FMEA should modify them as required. Rather than the understanding of the proper use of the rating columns improving as new FMEA manuals come out, it seems to be getting worse. The webinar will show why the latest ratings in the AIAG VDA FMEA Handbook should lead to both increased FMEA creation time with a proportional decrease in FMEA effectiveness.

|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, 2020||12:00pm EDT||1 hour||Register|
ASQ RRD Series: Facilitate, Document & Present a Root Cause Analysis: Learn to Diagram with the Second Cursor in Excel
The purpose of this webinar is to provide root cause analysis facilitation training. The webinar will use a historical case study as an example of how to facilitate a complex problem.
Attendees will learn how to:
1. Facilitate problem solving with local and remote groups.
2. Improve the way a facilitator organizes and communicates detail within an investigation.
3. Visually document incidents using pen and paper, dry-erase boards and drawing tools within Microsoft Excel.
