Course Duration: 3 Days - 8 Hours/day

This three-day course provides:

  • Insight into VDA-approach of how to conduct DFMEA analysis.
  • An understanding of the difference between the VDA and the AIAG FMEA approach.
  • Application of Block (Boundary) Diagrams and Parameter (P) diagrams in developing the scope of the FMEA.
  • The topics DVP&R / Characteristics Linkage are covered, but the focus of the course is on conducting DFMEA.

This course is offered in a dynamic and practical way with minimal lecture and more focus on student workshop breakouts and discussion.

Learning Objectives

Understand the differences between DFMEA and SFMEA and the use of Boundary Diagrams

Explain the use of an interrelationship matrices to identify relationships between components and higher level systems

Understand the differences between the VDA and the AIAG approach for DFMEA development

Know the importance of product-design to ensure quality products

Demonstrate an ability to properly and effectively complete all items in the DFMEA development process

Identify functions, requirements, failure modes, causes and controls, and properly enter the information in a DFMEA template

Demonstrate how to use the output from a DFMEA to develop a test plan (DVP&R)

Explain how a DFMEA can help identify effects and severity for a failure mode

Identify special characteristics in process design

Establish a priority system for design improvements, development and validation testing and risk-analysis
