Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance
In the Aerospace Industry there is a growing focus on Defect Prevention to ensure that quality goals are met. Process Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and Control Plan activities described in AS13004 are recognized as being one of the most effective, on the journey to Zero Defects.
This two-day course is designed to explain the core tools of Process Flow Diagrams, Process Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and Control Plans as described in AS13004. It will show the links to other quality tools such as Design FMEA, Characteristics Matrix and Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA). The course will include hands on examples of PFMEA deployment in a variety of typical manufacturing environments (including processing, machining and assembly) to illustrate how the technique is to be deployed. It will also describe the use of Reference Process FMEAs that can be used to minimize the duplication and reduce the time taken to produce an effective PFMEA whilst maintaining the required rigor.
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
This course is intended for personnel developing, qualifying and implementing the essential requirements to establish an acceptable PFMEA program for use on aero engine parts and assemblies.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
