 APQP

Advanced Product Quality Planning: this AIAG based course covers the five phases of this product planning activity as well as the team approach to any APQP project.  Special emphsis on the key elements of FMEA, MSA and SPC as well as Control Plan and Process Flow Chart.This course is also available as a Webinar
Automotive Core Tools Automotive Core Tools: meets the requirements of automotive manufactures and registrars that require additional training for ISO/TS16949 Internal Auditors.  This course teaches the audit techniques for APQP, PPAP, FMEA, MSA & SPC as well as training in “the process approach to audit” as required by some OEM’s.  This training greatly enhances the skills of the auditor when examining these documents.  The entire course is presented from the auditor prespective for review of these tools.

PPAP

Production Part Approval Process: this AIAG based course covers the requirements and approaches of PPAP.  This overview course covers the content of the 18 elements of PPAP with special emphasis on the key elements, such as; Design and Process FMEA, Gauge R&R, Process Flow Chart/Diagram, Process Control Plan.This course is also available as a Webinar

DOE

Design of Experiment: The basic package covers the fundamentals required for planning, conducting, and analyzing orthogonal experiments, which are the major steps in the DoE process. Emphasis is placed on the DoE process, which if diligently followed will yield an effectively completed experiment. An introduction to parameter design is included. A short video introduces the experimental approach and a workshop at the end of the session allows practice of the new methods.
Comprehensive FMEA Failure Mode Effects Analysis: this AIAG based course address the Process FMEA, with Process Flow Charting and Process Control Plan.  This training is presented as an on-sight activity and is conducted as a workshop with focus on your specific processes.  Day one is Process Flow Chart and introduction to Process FMEA.  Day two is Process FMEA from the day one flow chart.  Day two continues with the transistion to Process Control Plan development and use.
 FMEA Process & Design Failure Mode Effects Analysis: this AIAG based course address both Design FMEA and Process FMEA.
 GD&T Geometric Dimentioning and Tolerancing: this comprehensive course teaches application, use and interpretation of the principals of GD&T.
Healthcare FMEA Healthcare Failure Mode Effects Analysis: especially adapted to the Healthcare industry.  This FMEA material is based on the VANPS (Veterans Administration National Patient Safety) standards.
