On February 6, 2020 the webinar “FMEA Ratings – What They Mean and Why Most People Set Them Incorrectly” was presented by Richard Harpster.  The objective of the webinar was to help people understand the purpose of each of the Design and Process FMEA Ratings and why most people set them incorrectly.  Attendees were taught many important things about Design FMEA ratings including but not limited to:

  1. most popular FMEA manuals in publication provide incorrect information on how to set the occurrence ratings in the Design FMEA;
  2. the importance of the Class column in the Design FMEA;
  3. how to use the Design FMEA to prioritize the design problems identified in the FMEA to work on;
  4. how to use the Design FMEA to determine when a design should be released;
  5. the fundamentals of the new AIAG VDA Action Priority (AP) Rating for the Design FMEA that is intended to replace RPN rating in the Design FMEA and why it does not work;
  6. the new AIAG VDA FMEA ratings systems for the Design FMEA and why if used the effectiveness of your Design FMEAs will be severely degraded.

The webinar was positively received with many people expressing that they learned a lot.  Many people requested the slide pack so they could further study the information provided.  

The only negative comment received was that it was too much information for one hour.  Due to the tremendous interest shown, the ASQ Reliability Division and Harpco® Systems has decided to present two separate one-hour seminars for the Design FMEA Ratings and Process FMEA Ratings.  During the “Design FMEA Ratings – Deepening the Understanding” webinar Design FMEA rating key concepts presented in the original webinar will be reviewed.    The additional time will used to present actual Design FMEA examples to demonstrate some of the concepts. We are also asking potential attendees to send questions that they would like to see answered during the presentation to richard.harpster@harpcosystems.com.  Although Richard may not be able to answer them all due to time constraints, he has pledged he will try.
