In today’s competitive market, it is important for companies to deliver high-quality products. One methodology that can help achieve this goal is Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), which is a systematic method for identifying potential failures and their impact on a process or system. Let’s have a look how FMEA can contribute to higher quality.
FMEA can contribute to quality in several ways. By using AVIX FMEA, potential errors in the manufacturing process can be identified and actions can be taken to eliminate or reduce the risk of these errors. This lead to a more reliable and high-quality manufacturing process. By using FMEA, manufacturing processes can be improved, which in turn reduce the number of defective products less cost for defects and increased customer satisfaction.
The FMEA process begins by identifying all potential failures and their impact on the processes. The likelihood and severity of each failure are then assessed and classified according to their criticality. Based on this information, appropriate actions can be taken to eliminate or reduce the risk of these failures. This may include changing processes, introducing new control measures, or training operators.
FMEA is a somewhat complex methodology and requires commitment from all stakeholders. It is important to involve everyone involved in the manufacturing process, including managers, engineers, and operators. This help creating a culture of collaboration and quality.
AVIX FMEA helps identifying potential failures and their impact on processes in an organized and visual way. A big advantage is the interaction between the FMEA and all the other modules of the AVIX software. This helps creating a well-defined methodology to manage and keep FMEA:s updated related to other types of process changes, e.g. time studies and line balancing without breaking the link to the FMEA.
