>Assessing Risk: How to prevent and minimise product and process failures


Preventing and Minimising Risks in Processes

Preventing failures in processes before they happen is one of the most powerful and cost effective methods that can help a company plan, prevent and minimise risks to its stakeholders. The aerospace and automotive industries stipulate the use of techniques and tools that analyse the failure modes that can happen in a process, the potential causes, risks that are likely to occur, and hence the priority for risk reduction.

Training in his field is highly effective in helping to minimise and even prevent process failures, and keep failures from eroding profits.

AOQ (NSW) one-day PFMEA

This in-house workshop will show your company how to implement a step-by-step approach for identifying all possible process failures, get management on board, and involve your production team in the process.

Furthermore, it will assist you in identifying areas for improvement, and developing new processes which are aligned with, and aimed at, the successful achievement of company objectives.

PFMEA Training Outcomes

The course will enable participants to:

- Gain insights and an understanding about the company’s processes and failure modes of its products and services that will directly improve customer satisfaction by compliance to “functional” requirements.

- Minimize risks and the impact of “things gone wrong” by better process controls through identifying and reducing the impacts/risks from the use of poor function directly related to its severity.

- Enhance current management system documentation to support improvements.

- Integrate FMEA within the company’s continual improvement and QM systems.
