Failure Modes and Effects Analysis and Design for Manufacturability and Assembly

June 28th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

In this workshop, you will learn two different tools for improving new and existing designs: FMEA will enable a cross-functional team to evaluate a design and determine potential negative effects, prioritize the effects by quantifying their magnitude, and identify and implement actions to address the effects. DFMA will enable a cross-functional team to evaluate components to ensure they are manufacturable, evaluate parts to ensure they are “necessary,” and evaluate the characteristics of an assembly: part-to-operator interface, part-to-part interface, fastening methodology, non-value steps. Participants are encouraged to bring an FMEA to the workshop to work on with the instructor.

Mistake Proofing.

July 25th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Arctic Cat

People don’t want to make mistakes, but all workers make them. Learn how simple Poke-Yoke fool proofing may remove the possibilities for error.  Production devices or design for assembly criteria can eliminate mistakes before they happen. Achieve the reliable, continuous flow of Lean manufacturing. Participants are asked to come prepared to discuss an issue from their workplace caused by human error – one that has NOT been solved. Bring information that will help others unfamiliar with your operation to understand it better.  nformation could include descriptions of the work, product (actual samples are best if possible), video, and anything else that will help to describe the issue. Seating is limited. This workshop will be held at Arctic Cat, 6801 Glenn Carlson Drive, St. Cloud, MN 56301. Participants are to wear safety footwear and bring safety glasses for the tour.

Root Cause Analysis

July 30th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Does the desire to act overpower the need to understand? Understanding the problem, the process, the people and the distinctions between the types of causes are all stepping stones to continuous improvement.

Integrated Product and Production Development

September 4th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

The choices you make in design determine your fate in manufacturing. Integrated Product and Production Development (IPPD) goes well beyond simple design for manufacturing into the realm of concurrent engineering. IPPD techniques align everything from design intent through saleable production to ensure that processes are scalable, repeatable, in-control and all decisions maximize the benefit to your company.

Design of Experiments (DOE)

October 1st 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

DOE statistical tools can be applied to improve quality, processes, designs and many Lean and 6 Sigma problems. It is a powerful statistical method to develop mathematical transfer functions (eg. V=IR, but too complex for first principles) or relationships of a result based on complex dependencies. Engineers will often use the logical, but expensive, method of changing one factor at a time (OFAT) while holding the rest constant. The better alternative often is DOE which reduces the number of experiments while returning greater knowledge at minimum cost!
