In the domain of global automotive suppliers, manufacturing defects can have costly and serious ramifications: increased warranty costs, impaired product functionality and safety, and an inability to meet required automotive industry standards, among other potential consequences. The ability to assess risks associated with possible product failure is essential, and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a critical tool that enables successful risk assessment.
A forward-looking approach to quality first comprehends the needs of the customer and then builds quality into the design of both product and process. The efficient use of FMEA within a comprehensive Quality Management System (QMS) enables manufacturers to avoid defects before production, improving functional safety and product reliability.
This strategic approach is the topic we will address in our June 30 webinar, “Realizing the benefits of Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) process supported by a closed-loop quality solution.”
In this webinar, you will learn how a complete quality system supports the FMEA process and enables companies to realize risk analysis. We will explore:
- Benefits of a holistic quality management approach
- Best-practices from Siemens subject matters experts
- How customers successfully achieved comprehensive continuous improvement from a quality management system
