Flexial’s FMEA programs are unique – providing a digital, searchable library of identified failure modes that are continuously updated through lessons learned; internal and external failure mode analysis and systematic problem-solving methodologies that include detailed root cause analysis and corrective action; operator involvement through continuous improvement \ preventive processes, customer feedback, and field performance data.
At any given moment, Flexial can identify, in a few clicks of a mouse, what the highest RPN (Risk Priority Number) in the entire operation is, or on a given process, or on a given design. In addition, Flexial has taken FMEA to a new level by making RPN numbers a key measurable – trending and tracking product RPN averages over time to ensure that we are continuously reducing risk with each product launch.
Flexial designs the process and the product concurrently, ensuring process capability for every specification. DMA aids prevention of downstream problems by identifying and correcting them in the design stage – the least-expensive way to solve a problem is before it happens.
While Flexial designs the process with the product, Flexial’s engineers and program managers work concurrently with the customer to design products while the customer designs his higher-level system or subsystem. With everyone involved from the beginning, the chances of the resulting product perfectly meeting the customer’s needs are greatly enhanced. Manufacturing gets a product they are capable of building to the required quality and productivity levels, and the customer gets a product that meets or exceeds its expectations.
