The goal of TechScan training is proficiency. This is achieved through a comprehensive and experiential regimen using complex real-life product and process development challenges. The practitioner will learn how to capitalize on this powerful new tool, and how its implementation will improve the failure discovery rate, as well as reduce cost and lead times by at least an order of magnitude. Training will also cover the necessary steps and decision-making processes required for effective integration and execution of TechScan alongside existing quality enhancement tools.You will learn:
- How to create a behavioral model for a given system, be it a product or a process
- How to quickly identify nearly all potential failure modes
- How to objectively interpret throughput data
NANEVA offers much more than just an automated approach to FMEA analysis. We will guide select teams of your top subject matter experts through the TechScan-enhanced FMEA process, and jointly perform FMEAs on selected systems, producing critical, comprehensive and accurate reports. Each project will deliver:
- A behavioral model of your system (a product or a process).
- The behavioral model automatically captures the functional and physical interactions between system components. Overall system behavior is then represented as a sum total of functional “streams”, as well as “streams” of energy and materials (i.e., physical effects) that “flow” through its components. TechScan algorithms then analyze the behavioral model and reveal failure propagation paths along all of the hierarchical levels of the system’s structure. The algorithms also operate in reverse – that is, beginning with a given failure mode first, then determine its potential cause(s).
- An automatically generated editable FMEA report for the system.
- The result of these analyses is an automatically populated company-customized FMEA table showing all of the system components and associated failure modes and failure causes.
- A knowledge-base of physical effects pertinent to system functioning.
- The behavioral model utilizes an extensive knowledge-base of physical and chemical effects contained in the application. The knowledge-base includes models and descriptions of hundreds of physical and chemical effects (i.e., phenomena underlying the functioning – both adequate and faulty – of system components). Access to these effects, gleaned from numerous areas of engineering and applied science, dramatically broadens the horizon of each subject matter expert and significantly eases and enhances cross-discipline communication between different design teams.
