FMEA-Practice Day at STEYR and Case IH Traktoren in St. Valentin on 18th Oktober 2016 – Analysis of much complex Systems with FMEA

The event exemplifies possible procedures for complex systems. The constantly growing complexity of the developed systems compels the development of the FMEA methodology..It describes the possible applications in practice as well as their usefulness and importance for risk management. In particular, the new requirements of the VDA and the AIAG as well as the standards of ISO TS 16949 will be considered within the framework of the forum.

The FMEA is a:

  • strategic component of the corporate view of quality management (QM)
  • active element over all phases of the product life cycle
  • central module in a comprehensive concept from project management (APQP / Control plan), production control and inspection plan (integration)

    Studies prove that approx. 75% of the quality problems originate in the planning areas and / or in the development. Therefore, it is obvious to consider the beginning of the product life cycle more intensively. In addition, the product manufacturer is located in a dense environment of laws (eg product liability law), standards (eg DIN EN ISO 9001: 2015, ISO TS 16949) and directives (VDA / AIAG). Last but not least, the question arises about the profitability of a company, which is heavily burdened by guarantee and goodwill, by recall actions and customer losses.
