Offsite training provides the fundamentals of quality and reliability methodologies based on industry standards and enables learning in a collaborative environment. Please review the scheduled Workshop or Conference listed below and learn from a proven expert.

FMEA (APQP Tools) Workshop

May 8 - May 9

Design Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) and
Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM) – Day One

The workshop begins with Design Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) and Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM), emphasizing the latest information based on industry standards and best practices. This course will support participants interested in understanding more about the latest updates to SAE J1739 FMEA Standard and the AIAG/VDA FMEA Handbook. This course will also provide information on how to complete DRBFM and explain the similarities and differences between DFMEA and DRBFM.

Training will also include team exercises that will enhance the knowledge of each process step defining DFMEA and DRBFM and how they interface with other quality and reliability tools. Participants will learn how to complete the different phases of the processes regardless of spreadsheet format. At the end of this course the participant will understand how to complete any FMEA or DRBFM format.

Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (PFMEA) Workshop – Day Two

This part of the workshop covers Process Flow Diagram (PFD), Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (PFMEA), and Process Control Plans (PCP), providing the latest information based on industry standards and best practices. This course will support participants interested in understanding more about the latest updates to SAE J1739 FMEA Standard, SAE AS13004 PFMEA and Control Plan Standard for Aerospace, and the new AIAG/VDA FMEA Handbook.

This course will include training based on the defined PFMEA course description and it will also include team exercises that will enhance the knowledge of each process step defining PFD, PFMEA, PCP, and the interfaces among the processes. The training will also include how PFD, PFMEA, and PCP supports completing the 3 major manufacturing areas of PPAP requirements.

ReliaTrain is hosting this event on May 8th and 9th at the Birmingham Country Club, located at 1750 Saxon Dr, Birmingham, Michigan 48009.

This two-day workshop will cover the APQP/PPAP core tools of DFMEA, PFD, PFMEA, and PCP, and the connection and interaction among these processes.

The workshop registration fee of $1,295 covers both the DFMEA and PFMEA course materials, Certification, and CEUs. This is a level-one “Train-the-Trainer” course.

Attendees will receive level one FMEA Certification from ReliaTrain (including a certificate for DFMEA and PFMEA) and a total of 1.6 CEUs.  ReliaTrain is accredited by IACET to grant Continuing Education Units (CEU) for all of our professional training courses.

APQP & PPAP Core Tools Workshop

TBD

Advanced Product Quality Planning

APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) is a structured method that defines and establishes the steps necessary to ensure products meet requirements and customer expectations. There are (6) major sub-sections for APQP: Preparation; Planning and Defining; Product Design and Development; Process Design and Development; Product and Process Validation; and Feedback, Assessment, and Corrective Action. There is a natural linkage of information between all (6) sub-sections, and this training will define how the various quality tools and processes all flow and work together.

This APQP course outlines a discipline and logical set of guidelines and explains the connection with the systems engineering Vee model. Both APQP and Systems Engineering recommend the same phases of product and process development and implementing a common set of core tools. and processes all flow and work together.

Production Part Approval Process

Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is a valuable tool for establishing confidence in suppliers and their design and production processes. The documentation on the PPAP package is aligned with the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) process used during the design and development of new products and component systems to reduce the risk of unexpected failure due to errors in design and manufacture. Initially PPAP was utilized by the automotive and aerospace industries but is now being utilized by several industries to improve communication and provide quality products.

PPAP defines the approval process for new or revised parts, or parts produced from new or significantly revised production methods. The PPAP process requirements can vary based on the customer but industry standards define the core elements required for approval of production level parts. The resulting PPAP submission provides the evidence that the supplier has met or exceeded the customer’s requirements and the process is capable of consistently reproducing quality parts.

The process of completing a PPAP submission is a detailed process that is a collection of key elements that must be completed to verify that the production process will produce a quality product. Every element is not always required for every submission. Requirements of the PPAP are usually negotiated during the quoting process. ReliaTrain experience will provide confidence the PPAP package is complete and correct based on the first submission.

This live workshop is under development and more information will be available soon. Contact Bill Haughey at 810-516-1157 or bill@reliatrain.com for more information.
