Does anyone know of a good FMEA training class for TE Supplement suppliers? I posted this question in the "FMEA/Control Plans" forum, but I wanted your input as well.

Thanks in advance,

What ever happened on this, Dan? Did you find a class / course aimed at TE suppliers?

Marc,

We had the training/coaching on Feb. 16th. It was performed by Georege Hummel of Interstate Quality Consultants, Inc. (IQC). I thought the class went very well, but management believes the FMEA dug too deep. So we are going to set up our FMEA a little differently than what George did for our class.

I also received quotes from Eagle Goup USA, Inc., American Supplier Institute (ASI), and finally Total Quality Solutions, Inc. (TQS) in conjunction with Waukesha County Technical College.

We wanted a compressed course (1 day) with both theoretical and practical application. IQC was competatively priced, and I had a training class ("Understanding the TE Supplement") through the AMT (Association for Manufacturing Technolog), which George taught. I thought the class was very well suited for different TE companies; it was definitely a value added experience. So with many other things being equal (or close to it) we went with IQC for our FMEA training/coaching.

I had printed the Machinery FMEA PDF file that you have and we wound up using the Severity, Occurence, and Detection tables for the class. I told George where I got them from and he said he has heard of this website, but hasn't been here in a while.

In case anyone is wondering, I would definitely recommend IQC to anyone interested. By the way their website, for those interested (if Marc is kind enough to leave it in), is www.iqcinc.com

Completely off the subject, has the federal government ever looked at the AIAG as a monopoly? There are a lot of companies spending a whole lot of money on all of the quality aspects currently in the marketplace. I believe that they (read AIAG, Big Three, etc.) want to get as much money out of the current quality system as they can before requiring us to change to TS16949. But then again, this is IMHO.
