Must read: FMEA, Control Plan, Inspection Plan and Work Instructions
In the Process Flow and PFMEA, we describe all the process steps. These steps are linked to the steps in the Control Plan. So a PFD is linked to a PFMEA which is linked to a Control Plan. As a minimum, these steps are linked but most often the requirements, classification symbols and control methods are also linked. The control methods described in the Control Plan need to be implemented on the shop floor.
On the shop floor we want the operator to only work with information which is relevant for his or her work process. So the Control Plan can be linked to multiple inspection plans and work instructions.
A Control Plan can contain the information for multiple process steps and multiple work processes. The control methods can also be completely different like Poke Yoke, SPC, check sheets and/or inspection sheets etc. And so, for the operator we need to create logical inspection plans and data entry forms.

What’s new: DataLyzer FMEA new features
We are currently working on a new feature which will allow users to create or print data entry inspection sheets or work instructions directly from the Control Plan. For data entry we can of course use our SPC software but in some cases inspection sheets and complex work instructions are useful and will increase flexibility of the complete system. We will offer an option to link these documents automatically to the control chart in SPC.
We have also given a completely new look to our software Feel free to contact us for more information or join one of our webinars to see the new look and feel.
Must read: Calibration and Measurement Systems Analysis
– A Practical Approach to Implementation –
The Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) process is becoming standard practice in more and more industries. In the graph below you see the steps and requirements shown for the aerospace industry, but a similar picture can be shown for automotive or other industries.
An important step which is often overlooked is the measurement systems analysis (MSA) step. In principle, it is a very easy and logical step. Skipping this step can result in costly mistakes and loss of time spent on root cause analysis. We are not saying solving measurement problems is easy, only that checking if your measurements systems are adequate is not so complicated or costly activity to implement.
