Introduction to Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM)

Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM) is a methodology focused on change management and continuous improvement. It centers on early prevention and engineering knowledge, eliminating time spent debating ranking systems, waiting for lead engineers to document and list their concerns, identifying what types of concerns are open for discussion and resolution, and brainstorming without any actionable closure.

This web seminar will explain all phases of the DRBFM methodology and provide details on how to accomplish the specific steps. With the Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM) and Design Review Based on Test Results (DRBTR) Process Guidebook that is bundled with the course, the instructor will provide specific information on each step. Formats, examples, notes and homework slides will be used to illustrate the defined steps of the new SAE J2886 DRBFM Recommended Practice. Similarities in content between DRBFM and FMEA will be discussed, however the focus will be on conducting DRBFM methodology.

This DRBFM Web Seminar will provide roles and responsibilities of management, design engineers, manufacturing engineers, facilitators and technical experts. Those interested in DRBFM will benefit from understanding the rationale behind this methodology and learn to guide teams through the paradigm shifts and mind set that are needed.
