Execution Author : D.H. Stamatis
This book is The Reference for
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.

Root Cause Failure Analysis
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.
||The Root Cause Analysis Handbook: A Simplified Approach to Identifying,
Correcting, and Reporting Workplace Errors by
This handbook offers an effective and integrated approach to the root cause
identification and problem solving process.
An excellent source of
information that explains the 'how-to' from cradle to grave.
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!
Design of Experiments Using The Taguchi Approach by Ranjit K. Roy
Explains Dr. Taguchi's approach to making the design of experiments more
effective and consequently improve the quality of products and processes.

by steps applying the same methodology to study interactions between factors
and mixed-level factor designs. Advanced techniques to analyze experimental
results and Taguchi robust design strategy are covered in the last several
steps. Topics include orthogonal arrays, analysis of variance, combination
designs, and analysis using signal-to-noise ratios. Case studies are
provided. The CD-ROM contains Qualitek-4 software for automatic experiment
design and analysis.
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
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)
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.
