    Dear all. I am amazed at the number of games/icebreakers that can be used to teaching DOE and SPC. I have just finished conducting an SPC course using the “paper aeroplane” found in this discussion forum recently. It turned out to be a great success and great deal of fun.
    I am wondering if there are interactive games as well in teaching FMEA. Any ideas?
    (Am now racking my brains for interesting hands-on activities for my 3 FMEA classes next week)CheersDennis Yong

    hi,
    just some quick ideas:
    an FMEA on the WTC buildings, a spaceship landing a crew on the moon,  brain surgery ?
    We did discuss the WTC and AFAIK the case of one plane crashing into the towers has accounted for in the design but not 2 .

    Dennis, I often use the same paper helicopter or plan by widening the scope. The scope is an educational package at grammar school or a publication in a youngsters magazine.
    This way both QFD and FMEA can be trained.
    A typical FMEA output would be: a little boy falls out of the window throwing his plane. Or (for an educational package) the project, although perfect for children, does not sell because school managers is not convinced.
    More general: any design case could do, but all trainees must have experience level. Organising a wedding, a party, a holiday.
    Succes with the training.  Leo Monhemius

    I have conducted large number of FMEA training – Design, Process, Equipment and Services.  My experience is that when participents take their own company example, the involvement and learning is the best.  It never fails.  However, the facilitator or trainer should be able to clarify in case of any issues in FMEA.

    Just do a search of the discussion forum for paper airplance. You can catch yourself up.

    Thanks everyone for your reply.:)Keep the ideas flowing. I agree that having real time processes and equipment is beneficial. But if the class is made up of new engineers from different departments of the company, I may have to come up with case studies that is easily understood by anyone. One of the case study I came out with during the teaching of the Process FMEA was the automatic frying of chicken patties in a fictitious company.
    For Equipment/Facilities FMEA which we are using, I plan to use perhaps some engineering schematics from textbooks as a basis for teaching FMEA.For Design FMEA, perhaps I could use household items such as making of a chair, etc and bringing the items to class.Was wondering if there are any free hands-on things I could use for the participants to do during the class, like building blocks or paper cutouts.In any case, the website for the SPC class is :https://www.isixsigma.com/forum/showmessage.asp?messageID=18201.

    Why don´t you start to think about the SEVerity, OCCurency and escape to DETection of you crack your brain …!?   :-)

    An FMEA is an inherently logical approach to problem solving. For this reason, it will readily appeal to everyone. Its main difference lies in its quantification of S, O, D  and use of RPNs. Again, this is not terribly difficult to understand.
    So when it comes to games for teaching the FMEA technique, it is important that we don’t create complicated scenarios having infinite failure modes and effects. The objective should be to instill knowledge of the technique  without getting lost in the intricacies of the scenario.
    Thus, even a simple project like brewing a cup of tea would provide ample exposure to the steps in creating an FMEA document and offer sufficient opportunity for discussion. Moreover, since it is a task everyone would be familiar with, it would encourage greater participation.

    Dear Dennis,
    It is nice to know that you are in the area of six sigma.I would like to share with you my knowledge and experiance in management games. Meanwhile if you can share with me  the games you have, I will be delighted.
    You can contact me at [email protected]

    DEnnis,
    Sounds interesting your message. I used to facilitate Six Sigma courses (in company) and I am not familiar with such kind of games.
    Can you please send me more information about how to work/ obtain such games?
    Thanks in advance,
    Marcos.

    I have used the scrambled egg, burnt toast and making a cup of
    coffee as training examples.  These have been excellent resources.
    I will be glad to send the information to you.

    Hi,
    just a thought about too trivial examples. If you use a too simple case for study the expected reaction will be (with a high probability :-)) ) – ” sure it works in this simple case – but what about real-life ?”.  I feel this is a valid argument – I mean ANY methodology will work just fine in a simple enough case.

    Dennis,
    would you please share with me material on SPC you used to teach your GBs?
    Thanks a lot

    I have attended one FMEA training and it uses building blocks for exercise.
    The objective is to build a car using the building blocks following some specifications, like, weight, length, height and functionality.
    We would then develop a design FMEA on the car we built.

    Thank you. That sounds really interesting and sounds like a
    good way to get people to think outside the box.
