Determine the agenda and tools required to identify and mitigate the risk of failures.
- Here's the challenge.…No one person knows the entire process,…nor does anyone know all of what can happen…or go wrong upstream or downstream.…Everyone is siloed in their own part of the process.…Here's the assignment.…Conduct an FMEA workout.…It's an excellent way to have all the key stakeholders…in the process, including process owners and SMEs…in the same room, to analyze the process…for potential failures.…
FMEA stands for failure modes and effects analysis.…It was covered in detail in the prerequisite courses.…If you've not done so yet, or if you need a refresher,…please review the FMEA videos in those courses first.…An FMEA workout is basically creating an FMEA…in a group setting, so like all workouts,…start planning at least three weeks in advance.…Check out exercise files for a sample agenda…to help you plan.…
Ask participants to bring any available data…on failures, failure rates, and process capability,…as well as any existing documentation,…such as cause-effect diagrams and fault tree analysis.…These will help them complete the FMEA.…
Note: This course does not cover general meeting facilitation. It is specific to planning Work-Outs and Kaizen events. Any prerequisite training in the Operational Excellence and Six Sigma learning paths should be completed beforehand.
