This course is designed to provide participants with an introductory overview of APQP/PPAP, FMEA, SPC and MSA methodologies. Participants will learn the intent of the core tools, linkages to ISO/TS 16949 and general requirements of the automotive core tool manuals. This one-day overview course is an overview course only, not an implementation course, such as AIAG’s course offerings of implementing each of these reference manuals.
Length: 1 day Prerequisites: Knowledge of Automotive Requirements recommended
Participant groups will:
- APQP – Develop reports showing the intent, inputs/outputs (alternative – how to audit), and linkages to the ISO/TS 16949 technical Standard
- PPAP – Identify requirements and linkages to APQP (where do PPAP submission requirements come from in the APQP process?)
- FMEA – Review DFMEA and PFMEA, define terminology, methodology and intents of the FMEA manual. Review both FMEA forms column by column as a group; focus on methods to reduce severity, occurrence and detection
- SPC – Report on key points, define terminology and identify linkages to ISO/TS 16949
- MSA – Define terminology and report on different aspects of MSA. Conduct question and answer on Phase 1 and Phase 2 studies
Learning is maximized through participation. That is why Plexus training avoids lecture-based teaching and focuses on group activities, case studies and hands-on applications. Learn by doing.
- Anyone involved in the implementation of ISO/TS 16949
