Failure Mode and Effect Analysis : FMEA from Theory to Execution  Author : D.H. Stamatis

This book is The Reference for FMEA.

It is a complete guide to failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) - the process of understanding and applying a methodological approach to problems, errors, and failures. Author D.H. Stamatis explains the process of conducting system, design, process, and service FMEAs, and provides the rationale for doing so. Issues that are completely addressed include: What an FMEA is, how an FMEA is used, if FMEA can be applied to all industries, how FMEA applies to service industries, how it applies to the ISO 9000 series of quality standards, and more. This text also establishes the legal need for an FMEA and its relationship to product liability. A variety of examples of FMEA forms, checklists, and sample guidelines is another unique feature of this book. A summary of mathematical formulae and tools used in FMEA is also presented. The more than 10 real-world examples and how-to specifics show how FMEA can work for any organization.

 FMEA Author's Edition  Author : Paul Palady

Introducing exclusive new developments adopted by the industry standard for design and process risk analysis and risk management. These new developments, along with several other new strategies, were developed over the past nine years in approximately 200 seminars conducted at 14 universities and 45 corporations by the author. The developments and strategies presented in this book will restore FMEA as the universal tool for risk analysis and risk management for both design and process.

Root Cause Failure Analysis  by R. Keith Mobley

A guide for evaluating most recurring and serious incidents that may occur in a chemical plant. It introduces the RCFA method to define deviations from acceptable performance levels, isolate the root causes of equipment failures, and develop cost-effective corrective actions that prevent recurrence. The three parts present analysis techniques used to investigate and resolve reliability-related problems; specific design, installation, and operating parameters for particular types of plant equipment; and a troubleshooting guide for most of the machine types found in a chemical plant.

What You Can Learn From Things that Go Wrong : a Guidebook to the ROOT CAUSES of Failure
by C. Robert Nelms

None of us really know anything until we invade the areas of our lives in which we are ignorant and discover for ourselves the truth of our existence.
A 186 page "textbook", this book is a refreshing alternative to the typical, boring, "black - and - white style" textbooks written about Root Cause Failure Analysis. Full of stories, clip art, humor and passion, this book is a practical cookbook, a moral lesson and a philosophical journey all-in one. In addition to explaining HOW to arrive at "root cause", the author also explains, through numerous examples, WHY he has developed the methods he uses. This most popular of Fail safe's publications is the basis for its four day course entitled "The Root Cause Experience."

Root Cause Analysis  by Robert Latino

Undesirable outcomes, chronic failure, incidents, and accidents… The cost of such events to corporations is high, generally adding up to tens and hundreds of millions of dollars in "accepted" losses. Why accept these losses? What if you could understand why these errors occur and eliminate chronic events from occurring altogether? Root Cause Analysis: Improving Performance for Bottom-Line Results, Second Edition shows how to identify, understand, and prevent chronic problems that hinder the attainment of organizational goals using Root Cause Analysis (RCA). The PROACT software, voted "Product of the Year" by Plant Engineering Magazine, and the steps outlined in this text teach you how to automate the RCA process. Used effectively, the information in Root Cause Analysis will improve the reliability of your plant assets and save your company precious time and money.

Management Systems and Organizational Performance : The Search for Excellence Beyond ISO9000 by Martin F. Stankard

Martin's book is an excellent tool for organizations beginning the journey to performance excellence. While many performance excellence experts and consultants discuss the complexities and linkages of the Baldrige model, Martin focuses on the simple parts of a system that improve an organization - the four cycles of high performance. In addition to the cycles discussion, Martin also provides a nice overview of organizational assessment, the options available for assessment, and recommendations. Throughout the book, Martin relates the four cycles and assessments to the PDCA cycle as a way of ensuring continual improvement. A must read for anyone in an organization considering adopting a performance excellence model for improvement or is already on the pathway to performance excellence!

Apollo Root Cause Analysis - A New Way Of Thinking by Dean L. Gano, Vicki E. Lee, Wendy C. Mitchell

Apollo Root Cause Analysis is about effective problem solving. It is truly a new way of thinking that will ensure you find an effective solution to almost any kind of problem. You will discover new communication tools that are revolutionizing the way people all around the world think, communicate, and make decisions together. This is a life changing book that will enable you and your organization to effectively communicate without the usual conflicts. Apollo Root Cause Analysis creates a common reality that everyone can see and understand. With this common reality, communications becomes crystal clear for everyone involved. Everyone can clearly see how the solutions will prevent recurrence, are within their control and will accomplish their goals and objectives. Imagine your next meeting without the usual arguments and power politics.
Nothing happens without a cause. You will learn more about the cause and effect principle than has ever been documented before. Most notable is the fact that every time we ask why? we should find at least two causes and when we continue to ask why? we discover that there is an infinite set of causes limited only by our lack of knowledge. By documenting these branched causes we are able to create a visual dialog that ensures an effective solution every time.

You will learn why 70% to 80% of the general population are ineffective problem solvers and why conventional problem solving methods don't work. You will also learn the secrets of highly effective problem solvers.

The book opens with a chapter on the pitfalls of problem solving and why 70% to 80% of the population are ineffective problem solvers. Chapter 2 provides a complete description of the cause and effect principle to include a new discussion on why our linear language causes linear thinking which prevents effective problem solving. Chapter 3 provides a complete description of the Apollo tools to include a completely new way of looking at evidence. Chapter 4 is all about effective solutions. Chapter 5 discusses how to institutionalize the Apollo methodology and chapter 6 covers how to facilitate an investigation. Included in this discussion is how to avoid the common traps of ineffective problem solving. The book also includes an Appendix that compares the different root cause analysis methods.

Manufacturing Insights: Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA)  Video !

This video was produced in cooperation with Robert Bosch Corporation in Farmington Hills, Michigan. The program is an introduction to the quality methodology Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA). As every new product is being designed, most manufacturing companies are developing FMEA documents to reduce the risk of product failures. In addition, quality standards like ISO9000 and QS9000 require an FMEA on all new products. To shorten development cycles, many different experts are involved in the design and testing phases of new products. After viewing this tape, every person on your design team will have a good understanding of the importance of risk reduction and how the FMEA will keep track of these responsibilities. This video was design to quickly bring all the team members up to speed on how the FMEA methods and procedures will impact them. Learning Objectives: A general understanding of why companies do FMEAs; What is the difference between a product and a! process risk?; What can companies do to minimize risks?; See how FMEA documents track responsibilities to reduce risks; How an FMEA is used within Robert Bosch Corporation.
