MFMEA / DFM M&T Training Program

Machine Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (MFMEA)
Design for Manufacturing – Machine & Tool Design (DFM-M&T)

ON SITEOFF SITEONLINE

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Design for Manufacturing – Machine & Tool Design and Machine Failure Modes and Effects Analysis analyzes and improves the design of Machinery, Manufacturing Equipment, and Tools from a Life-Cycle-Cost perspective. The benefits of using this process include: reduced lead time; reduced investment cost; and improved reliability, maintainability, and uptime / availability. This course will provide the ability to define the probability that a machine or tool will perform continuously, without failure, for a specified time, when operating under defined conditions. This course provides a step-by-step process to identify risks of the machine or tool; identifies guidelines to assess the reliability and maintainability of the machine or tool; and teaches learners how to generate ideas and actions to mitigate the risks and optimize the machine or tool.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

MFMEA is used to analyze machinery (equipment and tools), to allow for customized selection of component parts, machine structure, tooling, bearings, coolants, etc.
This course will:

⦁ Identify designs that improve the reliability and maintainability of machinery for long-term plant usage;
⦁ Define preventive maintenance as a control to ensure reliability;
⦁ Define limited volume, customized machinery where large scale testing of machines is impractical prior to production and manufacture of the machine; and
⦁ Define parts that can be selected for use in the machine, where reliability data is available or can be obtained before production use

This training program is intended to provide an introduction and foundation of the Design for Manufacturing – M&T / MFMEA process. Mastering the content will improve the design of Machinery, Manufacturing Equipment and/or Tools from a Life-Cycle-Cost perspective. At the end of this course you should be able to:

⦁ List the inputs and outputs of DFM for Machine and Tool process
⦁ Explain the advantage of the DFM for Machine and Tool process
⦁ Define the inputs and outputs of Machine Failure Modes and Effects Analysis Process
⦁ Complete Machine Failure Modes and Effects Analysis of a Machine or Tool
⦁ Develop a list of areas where improvements can be made in machinery reliability, durability, and maintainability that will result in reduced mean-time-to-repair and increased machinery availability
⦁ Define how to complete Reliability Analysis of a Machine or Tool
⦁ Define the criteria of Reliability Analysis
⦁ Define how to complete Maintainability Analysis of a Machine or Tool
⦁ Define the criteria of Maintainability Analysis
⦁ Explain how to brainstorm ideas to improve a Machine or Tool design
⦁ Define the criteria for ranking ideas
⦁ Use DFM for Machine and Tool to identify the need for preventive maintenance
⦁ Define the link between the DFMEA and MFMEA to ensure the key characteristics controls are built into the machine
⦁ Complete a characteristic matrix for machine and tool design

COURSE OUTLINE

This course eliminates bottlenecks and process inefficiencies by contemplating industry best practices and organizing them into a disciplined and logical 5 Step DFM - MFMEA Process which includes:

⦁ Planning
⦁ Preparation
⦁ Risk Analysis
⦁ Actions
⦁ Assessment, Audit and Feedback Loop

Step One: Planning

Focuses on the machine or process design that will be delivered to the customer. The prerequisite tasks for an effective analysis of the machine design include:

⦁ Define the “Voice of the Customer” (Requirements)
⦁ Define Product (System, Subsystem, Component, etc.)
⦁ Define Current Issues
⦁ Define MFMEA Plan
⦁ Define and Train the Team

Step Two: Preparation

Focuses on the machine or process design that will be delivered to the customer. The key preparation tasks for an effective analysis of the machine design include:

⦁ Assembling a team
⦁ Creating a block diagram and P-diagrams depicting the machine or process design function and requirements (for example, the environment the machine will have to operate in: Temperature, Humidity, Vibration, etc.)
⦁ Define a clear and complete definition of the desired product characteristics created or impacted by the process or machine
⦁ Define a clear and complete definition of the desired process characteristics needed to create the special product characteristics

Step Three: Risk Analysis

This assessment phase provides a step-by-step process for the relevant engineer (or team) to complete assessment of their design.

⦁ Level of analysis is defined (system, subsystem, component)
⦁ Functions and requirements assigned for each element of analysis
⦁ Failure modes, effects, and causes defined for each element of analysis
⦁ Controls (Guidelines, Best Practices, etc.)

Note: The training material provides modifiable templates and examples that learners may use to complete the MFMEA.

Step Four: Actions

Based on a team decision, recommended actions will be taken to change the design or material, which could impact Severity or Occurrence. Additional testing or machine design controls may be developed to reduce detection values. Level of analysis is defined (system, subsystem, component) to:

⦁ Determine if defined best practices and controls address defined risk
⦁ Generate ideas to address open issues
⦁ Evaluate ideas and determine action priority
⦁ Management review and sign-off

Step Five: Assessment, Audit and Feedback Loop

In this step participants will learn how to create an audit process with defined criteria that will support improvement of the process and proficiency of the team and includes:

⦁ Documented required maintenance
⦁ Complete setup and user guides
⦁ Audit results, Communication, and Follow up

Step Six: Audit, Feedback, and Follow-up Lop

In this step participants will learn how to create an audit process with defined criteria that will support improvement of the process and proficiency of the team and includes:

⦁ Documented required maintenance
⦁ Complete setup and user guides
⦁ Audit results, Communication, and Follow up
