An Introduction, Basic Steps, and Examples of FRACAS Goes Wrong
Every failure has valuable information you and your team require to make reliability improvements. During the development process each failure may represent a future recall. Celebrate every failure. Let your FRACAS prioritize which failures to resolve.
Failures occur, sometimes a bit too often. Some failures may lead to dangerous situations, while others may go largely unnoticed. Every failure has vital information. Tracking, prioritizing and resolving the causes of product failures is a common business practice.
Let’s discuss the basics of the failure reporting and corrective action system. What issues to included. When to start tracking. Best practices concerning prioritization and root cause analysis. Plus, monitoring results of both short and long term solutions.
The actual tools employed, from 3×5 cards to a white board in the team room, to a custom database, do not really matter if the team uses the tool well. Let’s discuss striking the balance of gathering and tracking issues with the value the FRACAS provides.
This webinar will introduce you to the basic elements of FRACAS. Plus we’ll examine a few processes that have derailed, so you can avoid a similar fate. Wrapping up with a few best practices to help you build or improve your FRACAS program.
