Introduction to Risk Analysis

In the concept version of ISO 9000:2015 risk analysis will be a requirement.  This white paper describes an introduction to risk analysis and FMEA, the history of FMEA, how to get started with FMEA and the layout for IATF 16949.

Managing FMEA’s

What is required to make your FMEA program a success? What do you need to prepare before starting with FMEA’s and what do you need to do per individual FMEA.

FMEA Classification

How are is priority for improvement established and how are classification symbols and special characteristics used in FMEA? Different methods will be discussed for prioritizing: Risk Priority Matrix, RPN, Action Priority, Classification Symbols.

Is Excel the right tool for FMEA?

It seems at first but there are so many specific requirements which are very complicated to implement in Excel, that Excel is hardly the right tool.

Calibration and MSA – A practical approach to implementation –

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. In this document DataLyzer will give you some brief introduction in calibration and MSA and provide some guidelines how you can easily implement calibration and measurement systems analysis.

Calibration and Control Charts

Most companies are aware of the power of control charts for process improvement. In most quality requirements, companies are required to perform calibration and even statistical process control. In the laboratory guidelines for determining calibration intervals ILAC-G24, it is even given as one of the possible methods to establish the calibration interval but there is hardly any information available how control charts can be used in improving the calibration process. In this whitepaper we will explain how calibration and SPC can be integrated.
