CTQ's impact on to the system level,subsystem level and product level performance was added alonwith the scorecard. FMECA started with lecture session and moved on to the practical session. Lot of confusions in the areas of understanding failure mode,effect,cause,part level,system level,functions,requiremets…and usage over a period of time is surely going to solve this problem. I will have to gain on job experience in the company alongwith some experts…..which might give me a better understanding. It was really a ritual in most of our supplier companies to conduct FMEA…that too once in a year only or only when a new product is launched… Paul rightly mentioned it as the lip service.How do we make the lip service provider a real service provider??? There is were I need to contribute. Good. Need to work on the inmodule work.
DFX followed by the life and reliability distributions lecture ( for me its the nth time), still finding it new, as usual understand at the moment and then later on getting confused. Was able to appreciate and understand the effort put by our company in bath tub curve study and the actions based on that. Afternoon started with eliciting expert judgement by a consultant from Goodrich…its all capturing the knowledge of the experts in relevant areas and using it for product development. It is critical but most of the companies still neglect it and dont visualise the mammoth opportunity loss of not using the expertise. As Vlad was rightly saying the knowledge capture / sharing need to be brought as an obligation of the employees. The seminar on simulation,variation reduction and GD&T was very much useful for a guy like me, who works on the product and not on the production or design side. The few exercises which he gave us tried to keep us on the go. Late in the evening started with the inmodule work and went on till 2200.
