Seeking Ballooned PFMEA and Control Plans for Training

S

Sean Kelley

I wanted to see if anyone has ballooned control plans or PFMEAs to aid in training. I want to use it to highlight what each element is for and the AIAG manual has it but I ma looking for an electronic aid to be used for training. I can create my own but thought I would ask if it already exists.

:thanx:

See the attachments, which are not exactly ballooned, but they do include comments attached to cells that explain the expected entries. Hover over the red triangles and the instructions will appea I did them several years ago for Harley-Davidson; you might want to edit the comments to suit your own purposes.

See the attachments, .... they do include comments attached to cells that explain the expected entries.

Jim provides a good solution to define the entry definitions using Excel's comment function. Another method is to use the data validation function.
On the Settings tab set the allow dropdown to "custom. In the formula bar type "=FALSE". This will prevent someone from changing your header text.
On the Input Message tab, type in your explanation of the header.
On the Error Alert tab, select "Stop" in the Style dropdown, in the Title box type something like "Do not change this header (input cell, etc.)", and in the Error Message field inform the user that the cell is protected and cannot be changed.

The drawback to this method is the limited number of characters in the Input Message and the cell must be selected to display the Input Message. The drawback to comments is the ability to control their movement when columns or rows are hidden. Worksheet designer's choice.

As for ballooning for a PFMEA or Control Plan, you may wish to study their construction in Dynamic Control Plan, DCP, training material.
