Introduction to Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM)
I.D. # WB1047 Duration 6 Hours

Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM) is a methodology focused on change management and continuous improvement. It centers on early prevention and engineering knowledge, eliminating time spent debating ranking systems, waiting for lead engineers to document and list their concerns, identifying what types of concerns are open for discussion and resolution, and brainstorming without any actionable closure.

This web seminar will explain all phases of the DRBFM methodology and provide details on how to accomplish the specific steps. With the Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM) and Design Review Based on Test Results (DRBTR) Process Guidebook that is bundled with the course, the instructor will provide specific information on each step. Formats, examples, notes and homework slides will be used to illustrate the defined steps of the new SAE J2886 DRBFM Recommended Practice. Similarities in content between DRBFM and FMEA will be discussed, however the focus will be on conducting DRBFM methodology.

This DRBFM Web Seminar will provide roles and responsibilities of management, design engineers, manufacturing engineers, facilitators and technical experts. Those interested in DRBFM will benefit from understanding the rationale behind this methodology and learn to guide teams through the paradigm shifts and mind set that are needed.

Learning Objectives
By participating in this web seminar, you will be able to:
  • Outline the fundamental steps of DRBFM methodology, including:
    • DRBFM Plan and analysis requirements
    • Necessary preparation feeding DRBFM analysis
    • The two phases of DRBFM analysis
    • Documentation of design, validation and manufacturing actions
    • Feedback loop into engineering knowledge documents
  • Explain the intent and format of the DRBFM worksheets
  • Predict what it takes to gain and maintain proficiency and consistent application of the methodology
  • Find answers to most DRBFM questions
Who Should Attend
Product engineers, manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, supplier quality engineers, validation and test engineers, and facilitators, trainers and consultants in all industries. This web seminar will benefit beginning engineers, advanced and senior engineers and managers who must participate in FMEA's and DRBFM.

Instructor(s): Bill Haughey
Bill HaugheyBill Haughey is a respected consultant and instructor in the areas of Failure Modes Effects Analysis, Design for Manufacturability and Assembly, Design Review Based on Failure Modes, Design Review Based on Test Results, and other GD3 methodologies. He is a current member of the issuing committee of the SAE J1739 FMEA standard, SAE Automotive Quality and Process Improvement Committee; the SAE Automotive Electronic Systems Reliability Standards Committee; and the AIAG FMEA Fourth Edition Recommended Practice Committee. Mr. Haughey was recently approved to lead the development of a new SAE DRBFM Recommended Practice (J2886). Mr. Haughey formerly worked for GM, where he held various managerial, manufacturing, and engineering positions including Process Lead and Supervisor for FMEA and DFM/A. While at GM, Mr. Haughey also supported Tatsuhiko Yoshimura in the global implementation of the GD3 (DRBFM) methodology. Yoshimura considers Mr. Haughey to be a subject matter expert in the GD3 methodologies, including DRBFM and DRBTR. Mr. Haughey received a B.S. degree from the University of Michigan and M.S from Central Michigan University, and has the following certifications: Black Belt in GD3 (DRBFM and DRBTR); Master Design for Manufacturability and Assembly Engineer; and Certified Internal Auditor.
