    Hi ,
       I am looking for an explaination on how to link / connect the following tools during the measure phase of the project :
    From Process Map to Cause and Effect Diagram to Cause and Effect Matrix to FMEA . I dont know if the order is correct but please help me understand on how to use this tools as far as linking the output of each tool is concern. Kindly response soon. To those who will not have the same approach with respect to other respondent , I would like to ask , please dont criticize them whether they are right or wrong from each individual perspective. I need help not war. Thanks.

    I suggest the  following cycle: Flowchart through  Brainstorming-C&E Diagram-Pareto Chart,also  you  may  apply control  chart or scatter chart (to  detect  a potential  relation  in  the  C&E Diagram).Later  if  you  are  facing a  complex  status  ,you  may  apply  the  FMEA…..etc

    Hi,
    Thats a very good query. The steps are given below:

    Start with the process map. The process map will help you to identify the input parameters for the key process steps.
    The next step is to identify the key parameters from the list. This can be done by either of the 3 tools: Cause & effect diagram,

    BB,
    Regarding your question about “Process Map to Cause and Effect Diagram to Cause and Effect Matrix to FMEA”:
    Here are a few examples and explanations of the PF/CE/CNX/SOP method (PF is Process Flow, CE is Cause-and-Effect analysis, CNX is Constant-Noise-Experimental, and SOP is Standard Operating Procedure):

    This one includes linking to an FMEA, also:

    I would add SIPOC to the list – as the first step.  Linkage:
    SIPOC – brainstorming session/tool to understand the process & scopeMaps – detailed documentation of the current state processes – expands on what you brainstormed out of SIPOCC&E diagram – brainstorming session/tool to understand where/what the current state process pain points are today – based on mapsC&E matrix – we use either C&E diagram or matrix; I think it is overkill to do a diagram, matrix, & FMEA – somewhat more detailed analysis that quantifies the items on the C&E diagramFMEA – detailed analysis based on maps (we link each process step to an FMEA item) that brainstorms potential failures, prioritizes them, and develops action plans.  we use this information in our improve and control phases

    They dont necessarily go together…..they are simply tools to be used accordingly…..If you gain a greater understanding of process and its critical drivers in a simple and efficient manner, simply combine a throughou PMAP with an FMEA based on each individual process step….from here you can pareto out the RPNs for both the process as a whole or for the elements in a single process step…good luck….I am not sure what a C&E or Fishbone can give you that the FMEA doesnt….all simply collect potential causal Xs and rank them somehow…pick what you like and is appropriate.

    Minitab’s Quality Companion does a nice job of guiding you through the linkages. It also has the easiest fishbones I have ever seen.

    Hi,
    The tools that need to be used during any project are select and depends in the approach you are taking. When you follow DMAIC, in the define stage the following tools can be used.
    Define – VOC, FMEA, Pareto, RCA etc – narrow down on which problem you are taking up.
    Measure – Control chart  to check the stability of the process and if the process is stable apply GRR
    Analyze – Use Regression, ANOVA, Chi sq, FMEA , RCA etc to associate the Xs and Ys
    Improve – Use of DOE and RSM to optmize
    Control – Control charts on the Xs to control the Y
    Hope this help you
    with regards
    sathish
