FMEA

FMEA is a method used to evaluate the ways and effects of a potential failure of subsystems, components, or functions in the system. FMEA is an inductive, team-based method that requires time and a good knowledge of the system being analyzed. The aim of the method is to identify possible failures that may adversely affect the reliability of the whole system.

In the short term, FMEA gives a list of potential failures and identifies the severity of their effects and determines the priority of the correction actions. In the long run, FMEA develops the criteria for planning system testing; Provides documentation for future reliability analyzes in the event of a change in system design; provides a basis for maintenance planning; provides the basis for a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the reliability of the system.

The aim of the training is to familiarize and train the participants in the application of FMEA analysis.

VDA 6.3 Process audit – The requirements

VDA 6.3 is a process-oriented testing standard, designed to evaluate, analyze and improve a variety of control methods in manufacturing processes.
This training is recommended for those involved in process audits and the application of the VDA requirements, as well as those responsible for developing the supplier and assessing the performance of suppliers in the automotive supply chain.
Training helps to understand the process of conducting a test and provides guidance for further use of VDA 6.3 standards

Measurement System Analysis (MSA or GR&R)

Measurement System Analysis (MSA or GR&R) is a method by which we test the credibility of the results obtained during measurement and control, in order to determine the extent of the measurement error of the operator himself or the measuring instrument. We also measure whether this error is small enough so that we can continue with the use of results with further statistical analysis.

Statistical process control (SPC)

SPC is a part of the basic package of auto industry, FMEA method is used to set aside special characteristics, the control plans to set controls, including measurement and control, and then SPC methods are used to process the obtained results, to determine the capability and process stability. On the other hand, the Six Sigma method is not possible without a strong statistics, which the SPC method provides. Due to the nature of its connection, we recommend linking traninings for SPC and MSA methods

Problem Solving

Problem-solving is a formal requirement of the IATF 16949 standard. The method designed in company FORD, called G8D, is most commonly applied. This is the reason that this method is most worked out in training, compared with other similar methods, including Six Sigma and many others.
