Does anyone know a good company for doing FMEA Training for a QS-9000 TE Supplement company? It is different from regular FMEA, so it is a little specialized (e.g., Machinery FMEA).

I'm looking to train approximately 10 individuals (either on site or off site) to FMEA as required by the TE Supplement, not standard FMEA training. If any of you are interested in providing the training yourselves, I will need both prices and availability from you.

Thanks in advance,

Dan De Yarman

Dan,

Eastern Michigan University has some good training sessions and will come to your facility. There are probably schools closer to you that would require less travel expense. Sorry but I don't have their web address available but they shouln't be hard to find.

Al, FMEA for tooling and equipment manufacturers is different from FMEA's as described in the AIAG's FMEA Manual. The application is very different for companies like ours, when you only build one or two machines (products) vs. thousands or millions of piece parts (like many other automotive manufacturers do). We have to redefine our Severity and Occurence scales before we can do anything else. That is just an example of the differences between a regular FMEA and one for a tooling and equipment company.

Universities and colleges are good sources for this, except I think (I'm not sure) they focus on the regular FMEA instead of FEMA for machinery manufacturers.

I'll look at an institution of higher learning if I can't find what I'm looking for (at a reasonable price) in the industry.

Laura might be able to locate something. I have an FMEA course but my only background in machinery FMEAs was after the fact while bringing up a line for Kelsey-Hayes a few years back.

On the other hand, I don't see it as a big issue as it's no more than a risk analysis. For example, while on processes, I have been involved in Hazardous Operations Evaluation studies which are nothing more than an FMEA with a focus on operator safety and equipment survival in the manufacture of explosives.

Have you looked at the machinery FMEA document in the pdf_files directory? It's really pretty standard stuff.
