Demonstrates How To Perform FMEAs Step-by-Step Originally designed to address safety concerns, Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) is now used throughout the industry to prevent a wide range of process and product problems. Useful in both product design and manufacturing, FMEA can identify improvements early when product and process changes are relatively easy and inexpensive to make. Updated to include changes reflected in ISO/TX-16949:2002 standards and 2008 AIAG guidelines, The Basics of FMEA, Second Edition continues to provide the expert advice needed to help shorten the learning curve for FMEA teams to conduct effective and efficient FMEAs, even if it is their very first one. Includes Ready-to-Use Worksheet Templates Using a manufacturing case study, readers learn step-by-step how to use FMEAs to assess, evaluate, and prioritize areas of risk, and then to implement the actions needed to reduce risks to an acceptable level. It shows the steps needed to ferret out potential problems and prevent making inferior products that could endanger public and worker safety and compromise profits as well as the future of all stakeholders. Although engineers have typically analyzed processes and products for potential failures, the FMEA process standardizes the approach and establishes a common language that nontechnical as well as technical employees can use at all levels. Unlike other improvement tools, FMEA does not require complicated statistics. However, they require a full commitment to quality and a willingness to take a team approach that involves all stakeholders.

Outlines the correct procedures for doing FMEAs and how to successfully apply them in design, development, manufacturing, and service applications There are a myriad of quality and reliability tools available to corporations worldwide, but the one that shows up consistently in company after company is Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA). Effective FMEAs takes the best practices from hundreds of companies and thousands of FMEA applications and presents streamlined procedures for veteran FMEA practitioners, novices, and everyone in between. Written from an applications viewpoint—with many examples, detailed case studies, study problems, and tips included—the book covers the most common types of FMEAs, including System FMEAs, Design FMEAs, Process FMEAs, Maintenance FMEAs, Software FMEAs, and others. It also presents chapters on Fault Tree Analysis, Design Review Based on Failure Mode (DRBFM), Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM), Hazard Analysis, and FMECA (which adds criticality analysis to FMEA). With extensive study problems and a companion Solutions Manual, this book is an ideal resource for academic curricula, as well as for applications in industry. In addition, Effective FMEAs covers: The basics of FMEAs and risk assessment How to apply key factors for effective FMEAs and prevent the most common errors What is needed to provide excellent FMEA facilitation Implementing a "best practice" FMEA process Everyone wants to support the accomplishment of safe and trouble-free products and processes while generating happy and loyal customers. This book will show readers how to use FMEA to anticipate and prevent problems, reduce costs, shorten product development times, and achieve safe and highly reliable products and processes.

In 2004 Charlie Protzman created The BASICS Lean Implementation Model, which covers the full spectrum of what is needed to be effective and successful at implementing a Lean System. The reader is taken through a step by step approach developed over the last 15 years, in the use and understanding of Lean tools, principles, and processes. The authors break down Lean concepts to their simplest terms to make everything as clear as possible for Lean practitioners. You will learn an integrated, structured, problem-solving approach identified by the acronym BASICS (Baseline, Analyze, Suggest Solutions, Implement, Check and Sustain). This methodology is combined with a proven business strategy to help ensure a successful and sustainable transformation of any organization. The BASICS approach produces "real" bottom line savings with 20% to 50% or more increases in productivity when compared to pure batching environments. As those who have read the book will tell you, this is not a theory book... but rather a book you can return to over and over again for reference, throughout your Lean journey.

A practical guide to identifying hazards using common hazard analysis techniques Many different hazard analysis techniques have been developed over the past forty years. However, there is only a handful of techniques that safety analysts actually apply in their daily work. Written by a former president of the System Safety Society and winner of the Boeing Achievement and Apollo Awards for his safety analysis work, Hazard Analysis Techniques for System Safety explains, in detail, how to perform the most commonly used hazard analysis techniques employed by the system safety engineering discipline. Focusing on the twenty-two most commonly used hazard analysis methodologies in the system safety discipline, author Clifton Ericson outlines the three components that comprise a hazard and describes how to use these components to recognize a hazard during analysis. He then examines each technique in sufficient detail and with numerous illustrations and examples, to enable the reader to easily understand and perform the analysis. Techniques covered include: Preliminary Hazard List (PHL) Analysis Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA) Subsystem Hazard Analysis (SSHA) System Hazard Analysis (SHA) Operating and Support Hazard Analysis (O&SHA) Health Hazard Assessment (HHA) Safety Requirements/Criteria Analysis (SRCA) Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) Event Tree Analysis (ETA) Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Fault Hazard Analysis Functional Hazard Analysis Sneak Circuit Analysis (SCA) Petri Net Analysis (PNA) Markov Analysis (MA) Barrier Analysis (BA) Bent Pin Analysis (BPA) HAZOP Analysis Cause Consequence Analysis (CCA) Common Cause Failure Analysis (CCFA) MORT Analysis Software Safety Assessment (SWSA) Written to be accessible to readers with a minimal amount of technical background, Hazard Analysis Techniques for System Safety gathers, for the first time in one source, the techniques that safety analysts actually apply in daily practice. Both new and seasoned analysts will find this book an invaluable resource for designing and constructing safe systems—— in short, for saving lives.
