Only a current and well-maintained Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is really efficient. Every entry into this central knowledge resource expands quality know-how. With the iqs FMEA you can conveniantly create and update all system-, process- and design-FMEAs according to the standards. You can carry out your risk analysis according to the AIAG & VDA method in seven steps (planning and preparation, structural analysis, functional analysis, error analysis, risk analysis, optimization, documentation of results). The integration of FMEA into the iqs CAQ system results in significant synergies between FMEA, inspection planning, and action and complaint management. Avoid repetitive errors in the future and let your know-how flow into the development of new parts. Consistently close the quality control loop with iqs FMEA.
iqs’ inheritance technology and the reuse of integrated building blocks make use of similarities between products or components within the modular family of parts. Share your error knowledge across all locations: With iqs FMEA, changes entered in one place are automatically transferred to all relevant parts – safely and easily.
The iqs Requirements Management automatically imports the specifications from all common CAD formats and PDF files into the CAQ system. This way, centrally defined requirements are available to all modules, e.g. when creating an FMEA, and can be adopted as a characteristic and supplemented by you if necessary.
The FMEA is the most important instrument in preventing production failures – the iqs CAQ system refers back to the FMEA in the event of internal or external complaints and makes the creation and maintenance of additional failure catalogs superfluous. When recording new failures in production and complaints, the person responsible for the FMEA is automatically informed and the FMEA can be updated.
Evaluate in the error net which consequences of errors result from an error and whether there is a significant influence. This knowledge is extremely important because you can automatically classify all errors in the error network based on the detected "top errors". On top of that, this provides more transparency: the CAQ software uses the error classifications to show whether the classification of functions and characteristics is consistent and uncovers existing contradictions.
Track and check all defined actions and their effectiveness with the integrated action management of iqs FMEA. The consequential results are automatically fed back to the FMEA so that you can reliably compare prognosis and reality.
You will receive effective support in weighing the risks: Evaluate the chain of failures with the action priority via stored risk catalogs according to the AIAG & VDA manual. Individual risk catalogs can also be added with plantspecific explanatory texts. Within iqs FMEA you can filter and visualize failure chains incl. all actions according to action priority.
The integrated report designer can be used to redesign supplied standard reports according to your requirements. Apart from making adjustments according to your corporate design, you can also add/remove table columns or fields.
