Quid Pro Quo Preventive Action (PA) Examples - Seeking Examples, not Definition

I would like to have some examples of preventive actions. I do not need a definition of preventive action, but examples. I would like to see how creative folks have been with this area. I want to give my management a "broad brush" idea of how to apply preventive action, but I think I'm being too restrictive myself with P.A. Thanks ahead of time.

Roger,

We defined the following 3 items as the core of our preventive action program:

1) Preventative Maintainence and Calibration of equipment.

2)Weekly sales call reports from our sales rep to upper management.

3) Employee suggestion box (and yes, it really is a very active system here, not just lip service from upper management).

Hope these ideas help.

Regards,
Carol

FMEAs are a good idea. Also, many organizations classify all Continuous Improvement activities as PAs. Unfortunately, the 2000 revision to ISO 9001 still has the highly subjective requirement for Preventive Action (w/documented procedure too) after all they've done to add Continuous Improvement. Some organizations also track Trends over Time, and define Preventive Action when limits are exceeded or goals not maintained.

Examples of preventive action:
1. Training employees before starting work so they know how to do the job correctly.
2. Contingency planning.
3. An effectively implemented maintenance system.
4. Knowing your process capabilities and not promising customers more than that.
5. Knowing your supplier's process capabilities and not expecting more than that.
6. Decision making based on facts and data.
7. Disaster recovery planning.

PFMEA for an inspection operation resulted in "potential" identification problems that were fixed. No complaints, but "potential"

Just one example from that exercise.

The thought process of a PFMEA on just about anything comes up with some interesting answers.

To be blunt, thinking is the key word. Thinking about anything should provoke interesting questions and, hopefully, some answers as well.

Thanks for the answers. We are using our PFMEA as the basis for preventive action, but the question came up about other sources for preventive action. This is where my stereotypical thinking came into play and I sort of blanked out!!! So, thanks for the mental "Drano"!!
