@stef I stuck this together so you could see what I was talking about. if you use the data from the Define and Measure phase to calculate the RPN then the RPN should create the information you need to set priorities for Analyze.
The action plan (on the FMEA) is basically what you need to do in Analyze to sort out where the root cause(s) are.…[Read more]
@STEF There is no way I would second guess @rbutler on statistics particularly DOE. Anything you get from him will be better than advice you will get almost anywhere. @Cseider is good too but he kind of held back some although his advice to not spend all of your money on one experiment is dead on particularly if you are running a fractional…[Read more]
@STEF If you look at every tool in the Define and Measure Phase you can use that information in the FMEA. @cseider said you can use capability studies to do Frequency of Occurrence, MSA for Detection, Process Map for steps, etc. You can use the FMEA to synthesize all the information form the Design and Measure Phase.
The RPN’s can be used to…[Read more]
