SQI Executive Development Programs


Design of Experiments

Introduction
Statistical Control chart techniques deal with on-line control methods in which it is necessary to determine if the process is in a state of statistical control. Adjustments are made on the process as data from the process are collected and analyzed to determine the Process State. Although this method is no doubt useful, it nevertheless provides an action-taking framework in the phase when the product is manufactured or in the phase of service.

A design of experiment (DOE) is proactive technique in which a test or series of test in which purposeful changes are made to the input variables of a process so that we can observe and identify corresponding changes in the output response. DOE is an important engineering tool for improving a process. It also has extensive application in the development of new process.

Course Objectives

Proper application of DOE can result in:

  • Improve yield

  • Reduced variability

  • Reduced development time

  • Reduced overall cost and improves profitability

The application of DOE is the most important tool use in the Six Sigma Breakthrough Methodologies.

Who Should Attend

QA/Process/Product Managers, Engineers who are involved directly in quality improvement programmes.

  • Establish an OH&S management system to eliminate or minimize risk to employees and other interested parties who may be exposed to OH&S risks associated with its activities.

  • Implement, maintain and continually improve an OH&S management system.

  • Assure itself of its conformance with its stated OH&S policy.

  • Demonstrate such conformance to others.

  • Seek certification/registration of its OH&S management system by an external organization.

Who Should Attend

For anyone who wishes to acquire the skills using systematic approach to solve problem

Training Methodology

1. Use Team Approach

Establish a small group of people with the knowledge, time, authority and skill to solve the problem and implement corrective actions. The group must select a team leader.

2. Describe the Problem

Describe the problem in measurable terms. Specify the internal or external customer problem by describing it in specific terms.

3. Implement and Verify Short-Term Corrective Actions

Define and implement those intermediate actions that will protect the customer from the problem until permanent corrective action is implemented. Verify with data the effectiveness of these actions.

4. Define end Verify Root Causes

Identify all potential causes that could explain why the problem occurred. Test each potential cause against the problem description and data. Identify alternative corrective actions to eliminate root cause.

5. Verify Corrective Actions

Confirm that the selected corrective actions will resolve the problem for the customer and will not cause undesirable side effects. Define other actions, if necessary, based on potential severity of problem.

6. Implement Permanent Corrective Actions

Define and implement the permanent corrective actions needed. Choose on-going controls to insure the root cause is eliminated. Once in production, monitor the long-term effects and implement additional controls as necessary.

7. Prevent Recurrence

Modify specifications, update training, review work flow, and improve practices and procedures to prevent recurrence of this and all similar problems.

Measurement System - GR&R Studies

Introduction
GR&R Studies is a method for evaluating and quantifying an existing gauge or inspection system. It determines if an inspection method or equipment produce acceptable, marginal or unacceptable results. It is often taken for granted that inspection results are true values with no errors. In reality, all inspection or gauge results are subject to variation. It is a required component for calculating process validation, and the acceptability level for a production process.

Application of Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility (GR&R) Studies can give rise to the following benefits:

  • A criterion to accept new measuring equipment.

  • A comparison of one measuring equipment against another.

  • A basis for evaluating a gauge suspected of being deficient.

  • A comparison for measuring equipment before and after repair

  • Assess the impact of GR&R on Process Capability Studies.

Many organisations are struggling with the concept of advanced quality planning and how to incorporate this methodology into existing framework.

Published jointly by DaimlerChrysler, Ford and General Motor, advanced product quality planning is required in the ISO/TS 16949 Quality Systems Requirements manual, but it can be used for virtually any other system. Product Quality Planning is a structured method of defining and establishing the steps necessary to assure that a product satisfies the customer.

Course Objectives

This course will enable the participants to:

Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is one of the required procedural manuals of the ISO/TS 16949 Quality System. It was developed by the Quality and Part Approval staffs at DiamlerChrysler, Ford, and General Motors, working under the auspices of the Automotive Division of the America Society for Quality (ASQ) and the Automotive Industry Action Group (ALAG).

The intent is to determine if all customer engineering design record and specification requirements are properly understood by the supplier and that the process has the potential to produce product consistently meeting these requirements during an actual production run at the quoted production rate.

Course Objectives

This course will enable the participants to:

• Understand the requirements of the PPAP requirements
• Understand the process of developing and producing a package that meets PPAP requirements

APQP Content Outline

1. Fundamentals of APQP and the 5 steps approach

GD&T MEASUREMENT, GAUGING, AND CMM INSPECTION

COURSE OBJECTIVE
This course is the fruit of twenty years of interaction between Dr Bryan Ngoi and thousands of engineers from various industries. From the feedback of the engineers, Dr Ngoi realised that there is a pressing need to introduce GD&T training with emphasis on real life drawings, products and CMM measurement.

For our engineers to remain competitive in today’s market, they must have real and practical GD&T knowledge and skills that are relevant, current and sought after by employers. The real and practical GD&T knowledge and skills must be able to stand the test in real life working environment, where drawings are complex and "real life", CMMs are widely used, first article inspections are challenging.

This course is been designed to address the above concerns. It covers both the breadth and the depth of functional dimensioning and exposes the participants vigorously to practical issues. It has been tailored to build proficiency in key and crucial GD&T areas, including: practical CMM measurement of functional dimensioning, part qualifications, first article inspections, proper tabulation of functional dimensioning inspection reports.
