Failure mode effects analysis (FMEA) has long been part of advanced quality planning (AQP), a set of activities whose purpose is to plan quality into a product and its manufacturing process. The Automotive Industry Action Group’s (AIAG’s) and German Association of the Automotive Industry’s (VDA’s) newest manual (2019) improves significantly on the previous methods. It includes a very logical and comprehensive process that identifies potential failure modes, their causes (previously mechanisms), and effects. It improves on the previous approach to the Severity, Occurrence, and Detection ratings, with the latter depending on the nature of the process’ prevention and detection controls.
The Action Priority rating is from a tabulated matrix that gives the most weight to the failure mode’s Severity rating and then to its Occurrence rating. This is superior to the risk priority number (RPN) which is the product of three ordinal numbers [1].
Areas Covered in the Session:
Role of PFMEA in Advanced Quality Planning
Seven step PFMEA process
1. Planning and preparation; include the scope of the PFMEA which can include safety as well as quality and continuity of operations. Foundation or generic PFMEAs are previously completed PFMEAs for the same product family, which takes advantage of group technology (a common set of tools and process steps for a related group of parts).
2. Structure analysis; identification of the overall process and its objectives (process item), process steps (operations), and process work elements (factors that affect the process steps); the latter are similar to the categories in a cause and effect diagram.
