Using a Design FMEA

How Building Reliability Into The Equipment Design Will Dramatically Improve Your Profitability.

14302508349_bc9deda8dc_zProducts and equipment start with a design. The functions and performance occur or do not occur according to the capabilities designed into the system.

I learned early in my career, as a manufacturing engineer, that some products were much easier to manufacture (less yield loss) ten others, and it was often the design of the product that made the difference.

I also learned that once we purchased and installed factory equipment it was very difficult to improve the reliability performance.

In […]
