Mistake Proofing.

February 26th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

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.

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis and Design for Manufacturability and Assembly

February 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.

Design of Experiments (DOE)

May 15th 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. Bring a laptop with Minitab loaded. A free 30-day trial version is available at www.minitab.com. Do not access through a VPN.

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!

Root Cause Analysis

June 5th 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 effective root cause analysis to permanently eliminate problems from recurring. When structured methods and tools are used, this can be accomplished.
