Problem Solving with 5-Whys and FMEA

Problem Solving with 5-Whys and FMEA 150 150 GCSS Inc.

Introduction

This course discusses two simple, practical, and complemental tools for problem solving :  the 5-Whys (aka as Why-Why) for determining root cause of a problem and FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) aimed at preventing failures. Concepts and tools are applied through a series of workshops addressing specific work problems of the participants.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the training, participants shall be able to:

  • Understand the problem and causes of failures
  • Learn the benefits of using the 5-Whys tool in problem-solving
  • Understand and apply the 5-Whys tool and its variants
  • Describe what the FMEA approach is, its benefits, and when to use it
  • Define how FMEA helps identify risks, prioritize risks relative to one another, and focus efforts on an action plan to manage the risks
  • Learn the different FMEA types
  • Understand and apply the FMEA process to any of the FMEA types

Who Should Attend

Anyone who desires to use Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macros to create automated tasks/functions within MS Excel workbooks.

Program Duration

2 days, 7 hours each day
